For many, the best part of waking up to them is having their 1st cup of coffee.
Some of us may even recall the classic Folgers commercial that bam-blasted us with their melodic jingle encouraging us to start our day with a cup of their coffee.
I won’t deny that coffee is one of the 1st things many people think of even before they jump out of bed.
At least, it’s the reason they feel ‘jumping’ out for coffee will really get the best part of their day going.
But, what else might get you out of bed in the morning? What else might contribute to the best part of waking up for you?
What if the best part of your day started by giving thanks for the day ahead? Feeling gratitude for being able to get up at all?
Feeling blessed to even have a coffee pot?
What about starting your day with meditation? Exercise? A few passages of your favorite bible verses?
Being able to get in your car and head off to a job you love?
Maybe, you’re going to get married today? Or you’re going to jet off on a nice vacation?
You may even be retiring today. Who wouldn’t be excited about being able to do this?
The best part of your day being able to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do by choice.
However, when I think about the best part of ‘waking up,’ I’m specifically alluding to seeing our worth, how valuable we are, our potential, talents, and the many options these afford us.
I’m thinking of what we have to contribute to our families, our communities, and our own well-being.
We’re no longer blind. Now we see. We’ve become curious, spiritually inclined, and ready to open ourselves up to the many wonders in and around the universe.
This is the kind of ‘waking up,’ the awareness, I want us all to consider, even if we R set on accomplishing something even more worthwhile with a delicious piping hot classic brew in our cups.
So…what has been, or is now, continuing to be the best part of waking up for you???
