There was one morning a few weeks back when everyone was home when I disregarded the heat and went running by myself. As I ran, clinging to the shady spots, trying not to push my still-aching-from-my-waterski-hitting-it-knee harder than I should, I listened to a podcast that spoke to me. I need to go back and listen again…was it that amazing or was it just the very words I needed to hear? I don’t know, but there was a section about how good for the soul it is to be an early-to-bed, early-to-rise person. Early in the morning is when inspiration comes, I’ve learned, and boy, do I ever need inspiration right about now!
So, since then, I have made a more conscious effort to be a more consistent early-to-rise person and I have felt such a tremendous difference in my life. There is so much beauty in the early mornings, and I feel so much more prepared to greet all the life that comes my way.
So I just thought I’d share here, because maybe it will inspire you too. (The early-to-rise part starts at minute 39, just FYI).
The link is HERE.
Or if you don’t have Apple podcasts it’s HERE.
And as long as we’re talking about mornings, I have to share this morning meditation my sister Saydi introduced me to this summer. It is so beautiful it made me tear up the first time I listened. There’s something about those ancestors going before me, as well as that light that can precede each thing I do each day that is so beautiful to me.
You can find that meditation HERE.
