Before Your Feet Hit the Ground â˜•

“Sunshine riptide, dancin’ all alone in the mornin’ light” begins to vibrate out of my phone’s speakers as the homescreen reads 7:00am…

These eyes are still so heavy with wanting to sleep as I rub them awake. These bones, however, well rested and stretching back into life. This mind alert as always, studying the ambient sound effects of the morning…

These feet are about to kiss the floor…Wait.

For just a few minutes more, just wait.

Let these 6 1/2 sized feet swing ever so slightly above the cushy carpet, for once feet touch floor the day truly begins as another day of life crashes over…

Wait just a few more minutes, soak in this early bliss as the sun glows quietly with endless possibilities. Listen to the cute conversations between the birds and squirrels outside as they begin to plan their day. Breathe slowly, deeply, allowing the unknown anxieties to stay at bay…

Just wait for a few moments and allow your heart and mind to ponder within the curiosities of the dreams from last night…

Now close your eyes and take on last deep affirming breath as your raison d’etre plays in your head…

Ok, here we go…

Feet to floor…phone in hand…down the hall towards the kitchen…grab a mug…to the Keurig…watch that mug fill with beautiful caffeine…sip…sip…

Let’s do this.

If I can live through this, I can do anything… -Fall Out Boy
