Google returns 131 M results in 1.2 seconds for “reasons to get out of bed.” Most mornings I wake up before my alarm, which is set for 05:35 and my first thought is “I don’t want to miss the best part of the day.” To me that time between 6:00 and 9:00 is when I get my best writing done. It is the center of the cinnamon roll, the ooey gooey middle that makes everything else worthwhile. I know if I miss it I won’t get another chance until tomorrow and I want as much of it as I can get.
When that doesn’t work, and it doesn’t always, I think about my ideal clients, the ones that can really benefit from what I am making here, who need what I have to give. And I remember,
We don’t just have the right to shine, we have an obligation.
