Me! I had to write a post just to prove that I did indeed drag myself out of bed this morning—very reluctantly, but successfully none the less. Ha!
But so this entry has a little more content than just me bragging about doing something that 90% of the world does on a regular basis anyways, here’s a quote that I read from Swami Rama about waking in the morning:
“So if you really want to discipline yourself and your mind and develop yourself, then the first thing you have to learn is to get out of bed the moment you wake up, and not remain in bed tossing and turning. Rise, wash, and finish your morning ablutions—and then do something useful.”
He’s right, isn’t he? Note taken Swamiji, now it’s time to get at it…
I *love* this month’s Lent! And I am going to tattoo that quote right to my forehead to remember it. It’s so true – when I get up early (and right up, instead of leisurely laying about for another hour), I am much more productive all day long. It’s like it subconsciously sets my intention for being up and productive the rest of the day.
I’m glad one of us likes it Shannon haha. Luckily this morning I had to be at work by 7:30 so it was pretty easy to stick to the challenge. I’m hoping by the end of the month it gets a little easier…
