I woke up today at 5am.

It was one of those mornings when you just want to close your eyes and go back to your dreams. Ok, it was 5am and there was absolutely no reason to wake up that early. A first moment of anger – I won’t be able to sleep again. But then I thought, this is an absolutely amazing morning. Why should today be a special day? This is the wrong question.

The question is: why not today? Why not tomorrow? 
I go out in the garden. The freshness of a day waking up, the sun rising, a bird singing. Take a deep breath and inhale the warm smell of flowers and grass. And smile… What a lovely morning to wake up at 5am!

When was the last time you woke up and smiled? Well, try it – it helps. 

PS and the people at the office will smile back when you come in with your “what a lovely day today” smile
