All in all, I am glad we are moving on to 2014. Overall, I have the usual things I didn't get done. Lose ten pounds. Hmm, not so much. Exercise more. Sigh, maybe next year. Although, I've written more, which is a good thing. But when I was having the conversation in my head about how to get more done this coming year, a small voice said, "Get up earlier." I wanted to ask, "What time exactly?" But I didn't. The thought of early rising scared me more than losing weight or exercising more, the usual resolutions. This is sleep we're talking about. Truth is, I am a night owl. I would never call myself a "morning person". I like morning, but the problem is that it happens way too early in the day for me.
But it got me thinking about my habits and if I could change. I don't think that people can really change too much of who they truly are, but, could I learn to love the morning, could I actually like morning? You know, be one of those people that are cheerful in the morning, the kind that smile and want to talk to others? The kind that wake up at 6 o'clock without an alarm. I wondered.
