E is for Early - Pagan Blog Project

Good morning darlings!

I wasn't always a fan of morning.

No way.

Some days I still feel it's the worst part of the day.

However, I have found how I can 
be in love with morning.

Are you ready for my secret?

I get up early.

I embrace the morning time.

What? But - but - what about sleeping?
What about being all cozy wrapped up in flannel sheets?

Well - I have found that during the work week -
if I get up early -
I am happier.

I am more productive.

I am working Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm at
my bridge job.
Transitional job.
Not my dream job.

So when do I work on manifesting my dream job?

In the morning.

I got sick of getting up at 7:20am, flying through the house like a mad woman, chugging coffee, glaring, getting to work and having to talk to people all day long.
All day while I daydreamed of 
everything I was going to to that night -
"I'm going to write some blogs, develop a biz plan,
brainstorm what I want on my website, 
make some jewelry, etc."

I get home and nothing.

I'm exhausted after my job.
It zaps my brain, especially the creative parts.

So through trial and error, 
I have discovered my magic morning time.

The magic time of awakening for me is
4:25am.

Truth.

When I get up at 4:25am, 
all is right with the world.

I get up and do my morning pages first thing.

I follow up with some sort of spiritual reading that
I carry though to my meditation.

I grab my coffee and go through my emails, facebook, and 
any social media.

After, I have one full hour to work on whatever I want.

I can write blogs, I can network online, 
I can do business homework.

I love it.

When I get to work I feel accomplished and productive.

After work I get to relax.

No pressure.

No more feeling bad for what I didn't get to do last night.

No more blaming my job for not getting anything done.

Getting up early.

Who knew?

Well - I know now. 

And I love it.
Good morning!
I'm super excited to be a part of 
The Pagan Blog Project

Every Friday experience the alphabet of spirituality 
and pagan goodness.
