Get up early and embrace the morning
I’ve always been a morning person, but in recent times (I have turned 50) it’s been harder to get up. This morning made me realise that it’s worth it. I remember now – I LOVE MORNINGS!
First I went to boot camp with Fusion Outdoor Fitness for a kettle bell and running session. I felt fit and health and, as always, glad I made the effort to get up at 4.45am. There is nothing like a bit of outdoor exercise to start the day off on a good note. Unfortunately (or fortunately, you be the judge) there is a smoke haze over the Gold Coast, which didn’t make breathing during our runs pleasant but the mist over the fields, as eerie as it looked, was well worth a bit of smoke. It reminded me of that Stephen King novel ‘The Fog’, spooky! I wish I had my camera then and there.
My camera was, however, in my car. I always take the scenic drive home, through Koala Park, over the Tallebudgera bridge and home. Today I stopped over the bridge at the Tallebudgera Creek/Beach School car park. I could see an orange orb rising and with my trusty camera in hand, I raced along the path to the beach. I didn’t want to miss what was sure to be a spectacular sunrise.
So here is some proof of good reasons for waking up early in a few pics:
And that was just the sun.
So, in case you didn’t get up this morning to see the beauty in our world I hope you’ve enjoyed it through my eyes.
Maybe tomorrow morning you won’t hit the snooze button. Perhaps you’ll get up and enjoy the best part of the day – morning.
And just in case you missed it, here’s another reason to get up early in the morning:
