How many of us look forward to the sound of our alarm clock going off in the wee small hours of the morning? While I realize there are a select few of us who enjoy the "light" sound of a foghorn jumpstarting the heart out of a deep R.E.M cycle, I cannot count myself as one of them. I love the feeling of a hard days work , body aching from producitivity, & a mind satisfied with a "job well done," but nothing pleases me more than to lay my weary head on a rather comfortable pillow at night.
My bed & I have a wonderful relationship. My bed has ALWAYS been there for me no matter the time of day..in sickness & in health...regardless of my financial standing..regardless of my appearance, & regardless of ANY of the circumstances in my life...my bed has been there to provide comfort no questions asked no negotiations required...who could ask for a better relationship (well...there might be a few more things I'd like in a relationship...but that's another blog). Because of the security my bed has offered (and always will) I find if difficult...nay...VERY difficult to get out of bed in the morning & being HAPPY about it. WTH? I have never grasped the concept of being "Bright-eyed & Bushy-tailed" a term often used to describe "a morning person." For those of us who are NOT "morning people" (in my case...far from it) how do we BECOME "morning people?" How do we reach that point to where we look forward & almost anticipate our alarm clock? I have often envied the "energizer bunny" types who are up at the crack of dawn ready for the day at hand....however, I can't help but snicker at the fact that while they are wondering what type of fiber would better suit their morning meal...I am comfy, cushy, cozy in a state of snugglization warm in my bedstead. Honestly guys...who is the one suffering here? Every morning when my alarm goes off I seriously sit there and think of excuses to prolong my slumber (I'm totally not joking). My thoughts are diligent in finding some alibi, cover-up, cop-out, or defense just so I can aviod waking up & facing another day of studying, work, or drama. Granted, there are days that I look for to those things. I'm like a monster when I wake up...sad huh? Not only in my appearance but don't even try to start a "meaningful" convo with me. When I was on my mission I did....ok....there were days where I felt bad for my comps..just b/c "companionship study" was sometimes non-existant due to my "lack of personality." Well....enough is enough....I want to be BETTER! It is time to put away my slumbersome desires! I have made it a goal to BECOME a "bright-eyed & bushy-tailed" kind-of-a-girl...that's a good goal/resolution right guys? I think my family will benefit from it as well as my soon-to-be-husband. However, if ANY of you have tips...pointers....advice...or guidelines you GOTTA let me know....I'm a little bit desperado here!
