Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on morning.
They look different now, but still my favorite time of day.
What was once a 4am wake up call to get me started on my never-ending workday is now a 6am workout class.
That never-ending workday has gone away too.
What was once a day I could not manage is now me in charge of how I spend my time, my mornings.
What was once just me, alone in the dark, is now still just me but after seeing them all off.
What was once a long highway commute is now a walk with the puppy, our favorite time of day.
What was once too early, is now just right.
What was once so stressful is now so different.
What was once a feeling of dread and a weight I could not carry, is now me lifting weights I never thought I would be able to.
What was once always rushing is slower now, more intentional, more realistic.
What was once leaving my home as quickly as I could, is now me loving the comfort of this place I love so much.
What was once my favorite time of day, still is, it's just different now.
I love this! I hope to spend my mornings like you do; but I've got about 2 more years to go before it will happen.
Love that the dread and the weight you carried is gone!
I cannot wait for you to get here. I am so happy it is gone too, it was an awful time in my life and I so hope you are not there.
Nicely done! A lot of thoughts and meanings in few words. (I so totally struggle to do that!) God bless you at this season of your life!
Thank you so much!
Thanks for sharing.
