I will be the first to admit that I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON – never have been and frankly, I have serious doubts that I ever will be. That said, this article from The Sweet Life with Ericka inspires me to want to try and be a morning person. Lately I have taken on a number of new and exciting challenges – things that I have prayed for and dreamed about doing – but I’m finding that I just don’t have the time to get it all done some days. Getting up early, even just half an hour early like I did this morning, made a big difference in that I was able to actually have some breakfast, say hi to the cat and not have to race out the door. Arising at 4:30 a.m. is a lofty goal for me but this article gives me some inspiration and some practical tips that might, just maybe, give me the kick in the tail that gets me up at say, 6:00 a.m. – yeah, that’s a doable goal! – Beesha

By 9am, I’ve exercised, meditated, blogged, started dinner, done some writing, eaten breakfast and caught up on the news. No, I don’t have kids — yet
So, how do I drag my tired butt out of bed at such an ungodly hour every weekday morning? Here ya go :
