I woke up this morning, bright and early, before my alarm clock even had a chance to go off. I don’t really know why I woke that early, but I am happy for the extra time it afforded me.
Sometimes life just doesn’t go as you plan it to. For one reason or another, your carefully laid framework buckles under the pressure of the steady river of time, and you find yourself with never enough of it.
This happens to all of us at one time or another. That sense that the past or future is going to catch up to us, and make the now a bad time.
I’m going to tell you to shake that feeling off. Remember that every situation is different, and most of them are dictated by how you choose to perceive the time. I could have chosen to be angry, I could have chosen to waste the time I gained by waking up early, but instead, I chose to set to work.
I started my normal routine, and then took the extra time I had to edit some more of my next project. Time is only wasted if you waste it.
And though I plan on waking up tomorrow, bright and early before the sun rises, I also realize that it may not happen. I accept that, I plan for it, and I learn to do what I can to control my own actions.
