“Small minds talk about other people, average minds talk about events, but great minds talk about ideas.”
“Barefoot or first thing in the morning, I feel beautiful. Because I feel like me. I didn’t always feel that way, but I feel that way now. When somebody just loves you, and when you make somebody happy, when your presence seems to make them happy, you suddenly feel like the most beautiful person in the world.” -Angelina Jolie
Rise & shine my loves! I’m not a morning person, I never have been. But I still find that time when you first wake up everyday to be very beautiful. If you do it right, as with anything, you can learn to enjoy it. Don’t rush. Stumble (or prance, whatever, I don’t care) out of bed & into the kitchen to start your beverage of choice. Let your head hang low as the hot water runs against your neck in the shower. Get out, smile, & use your nicest lotion. I like to whiten my teeth while I blow dry my hair & sit in my robe. Eventually, things start coming to your attention. The birds telling you about their dreams, the sun peaking over the mountains, and the kettle beginning to whistle. Maybe this morning thing isn’t so bad after all?
