Mornings like these are rare; I’m usually awaken by the rustling movements or screams of a toddler. However, today I managed wake up first! Although I’d rather stay in bed snuggled under the blankets I made the decision to take advantage of this unique opportunity.
As I sit in my morning room sipping coffee out of my favorite mug while watching the sun come up & the cars rush to work I realized this is my moment. It’s not much but it’s mine. It’s my few minutes of peace & quiet before the madness ensues. This is my sanity. I could get a head start on my morning routine of doing laundry, emptying the dishwasher, dusting the living room and cleaning the wood floors, but why rush the inevitable. Instead, I sit here enjoying my moment listening to my thoughts and planning my day.
This is my new morning routine. I need this brief time to myself to be a better wife, mother and all-around human being. Whether you’re a parent or not, we all need some me time. Our days are full of making decisions, pleasing others, pushing ourselves to work harder, run harder, be better – we all deserve a quiet moment to ourselves.
