Good morning, world. I love morning, as long as dawn is breaking. Every morning is a clean slate.
I’ve been thinking about my efforts recently to blog regularly, which reinforces to me my own voice as I deal with various struggles but it also attests to the power of habit.
Exercise: same thing. It doesn’t matter how ‘hard’ you exercise in the beginning because the true goal is to incorporate the habit as an automatic part of your life.
Same for artists that paint everyday. Same for meditation.
Life is about discipline as much as it is about improvement and skill.
That constitutes my philosophy for the day.
Update on Nala
I originally would wake Nala shortly before 6 a.m. when I turned on my pink bedroom light and started getting ready for work. I would bring her downstairs while I fed the cats and made coffee.
As a working bird mama, I wanted her to have time with me.
But since she refuses to close her eyes at night unless I am in the room, I want her to sleep in. So I’ve been creeping out of my room in the dark every morning and returning when it’s time to clean cages and feed birds.
So far this appears to be good for both of us.
