I love anything that Susannah Conway does from her journaling class to her August Break series to her Blogging from the Heart classes. When I read that she was kicking off a new series called April Love, I did a little happy dance. I can’t wait to see what she brings to us this month.
Today’s prompt is ‘My Morning View.’ I thought for this go round, I would give a try at photo and journal prompts like I did a long time back when I took Ali Edwards 31 Things class.
After reading Gretchen Rubin’s Better Than Before, I have been thinking an awful lot about habits. Rubin’s premise is that people fit in to one of four tendencies and our tendency informs the way we make and break habits. I am very clearly an Obliger, a person who really needs external motivation to change and keep habits. Rob, however, is anUpholder, a person who succeeds with internal motivation alone.
The differences in habits is crystal clear in the morning. Rob rises and shines right when the alarm goes off. It doesn’t matter if he has a work meeting or is simply getting up to go for a run. He never, ever hits snooze. I, on the other hand, have a strong love/hate relationship with my snooze button. Each night, as I fall asleep, I promise myself that I will jump right out of bed as soon as the alarm goes off. And each morning, I snooze and then snooze again. Eventually I make it downstairs to catch a few minutes of quiet before I wake the girls. More often than not, my ‘morning view’ involves a lot of coffee and a little bit of blog reading.
How about you? What do you see when your eyes are first opening?
