Mornings are pretty cool. I like to see the sun hesitantly flow into the day. I like the feeling of being “there” sooner than anybody else. And of course of getting so much done before the rest of the world starts their day.
It’s a special, magical feeling both in Summer and Winter; Winters are dark here.
Then again, I also like the evening and night. Some of my best ideas come from that time. I used to think some of my best work comes from those time slots as well … but I’m no longer so sure.
I suspect that the idea that our best, most creative work happens late at night or early in the morning is somewhat like the illusion that your best work comes out of a bottle of red wine (artist), scotch (writer), or from a solid joint (can’t remember who this one would be).
Of course, neither morning nor night are special times. Maybe they correspond better with your active periods but that’s all.
Taken by themselves they don’t cause you to be happy, productive or creative. Taken by themselves these times can be downright depressing if you didn’t do what you wanted to do, didn’t accomplish anything.
What makes these times into Special Events for us, into Experiences, Moments We Lived, is that we look back and see; I did so much. Or; I finally really relaxed.
It’s not about the time – it’s about how you
use live the time.
You’re given a richness of Time today. Unbuyable for those who’ve ran out or are about to.
How are you going to spend your Time today?
