I wish I could do this more often. Wake up early, watch the light slowly fill the rooms. I'm just always so tired, but I need to remind myself that it's worth it. Worth the quiet moments with peppermint tea steam lacing its way past my face. Sitting downstairs in front of the window, wrapped in blankets, not having to get dressed for another hour. Reading a couple of Mary Oliver poems out loud to myself. Being able to imagine my day as I want it to be, and prepare myself for the inevitable surprises. Waking up early is so grounding.
I'm going to do this more often.
