I like waking up early.
Who am I kidding? I don’t really like waking up early. I’m a night person. I can stay up the whole night… reading a book, drinking coffee, watching tv, surfing the net, chatting with people from the other side (of the world, okay?)… So before I sleep, I hope and pray that i don’t need to wake up at such unholy hour (say, 5:15am, even before the sun rises).
But that’s wishful thinking. Because I am a mom. I am a hands-on supermom. I have to be up early, specially on weekdays. Whether i sleep at 10pm or 3am, I’m still the first one up the following day. Up and about.
After years of following the same schedule, I have come to realize that there is something special about being awake early — and that’s the chance to see and watch the sunrise.
Looking at the sky as the sun rises, watching a new day as it unfolds… awesome feeling.
