Backstory – A Time to Think
I sat there looking out the window at my special time of day and smiled. Such a perfect setting and time to accomplish. I started wondering whether everyone finds such a time and place to do their best. That’s how this story was written.
Consider This Show – A Time to Think
What time do you get up in the morning?
I’m an early riser – 5 a.m. for the most part. Love to see the sun lighten the sky and insist on a new day as it grows bright.
That’s my best time to think. It’s when these Consider This shows are written.
It’s quiet and personal and the day’s responsibilities can be held at bay long enough for thoughts of love and gratitude and joy to be celebrated first.
I find myself smiling, in front of the computer screen in those early hours.
I never pay bills at that hour, or plan a budget or open the mail. Save those for the afternoon, when energy is waning and mundane things can be done.
Early mornings are meant for thinking . . . planning . . . being mesmerized by the consideration of things that are and dare to be.
It’s not a time for Facebook or websites that present other people’s thoughts and ideas. In early morning, I want to feel my own thoughts; take them out, explore them, see if they stand up to early morning scrutiny.
Sometimes they don’t. And a show half written crumbles away like a lyric by Adele. Concepts that do not deserve your ear are burned at the stake and you never hear them.
How do you spend your early mornings? Please come to our online blog and post your response. If you have no early morning rituals, tell when you do contemplate or meditate or evaluate thoughts and ideas. I would so like to hear.
