Sunrise Reward

Sunrise Reward

Sunrise Reward

I am not a morning person. I hit my snooze alarm multiple times before I can bear to get up. That means I have to set my clock to ring early as a buffer so I have time to hit the snooze button. I am not above trying to fool myself into getting up on time.

I say “thank you” as soon as my feet hit the floor. I think that starting the day with words of gratitude is a good habit. Still, I go about my morning routine in a blasé manner. Routine is routine after all.

Maybe, I like the little thrill that comes from beating the clock, the adrenaline rush of meeting the press for time. Maybe.

I do know that the best reward for getting up early is a view of a beautiful sunrise!

  4. I agree, as a non-morning person, sunrise is a very special time of day when I’m fortunate enough to grace it!


  5. Particularly, if not a morning person, a beautiful sunrise can really start a person’s day off on the right foot.

    Thank you for sharing! 🙂



  6. Good morning! What a lovely sunrise to wake up to.


  7. What gorgeous colours. I’m not a morning person either. At all!
