Morning person or night owl? Which are you? I have to admit as a life long night owl, morning people have always amazed me. For me, morning people are like people from an alternative reality. It is beyond my comprehension and experience how anyone can wake up happy about mornings.
For me, mornings consist of dragging myself out of a wonderful place called bed. The first thing I do is make my way to the kitchen for my first cup of coffee. Then it is sitting down at my computer and listening to worship music as I partake of the magic elixir called coffee. After my second cup, I feel I can attempt to begin my day.
SO you can understand my astonishment when during Blogger Chat yesterday Hannah of Coc-GetFit at hannahmvandi.com shared that she wakes up at 4 am every morning. Furthering my amazement she shared that she does not drink coffee until 10 am. When she said she gets up at 4 am, my first question was WHY. I mean the sun is not even up at 4 am unless you re living in Alaska or Scandinavia in the summer months.
Piling on to my confusion over morning people, Barb of mylifeinourfathersworld.com chimed in that she wakes up at 3:30 am each morning. Really? How can this be possible? I go to sleep at 12 or 12:30.
I found myself in the extreme minority as each person shared how they love mornings and go to sleep at times like 9 pm. I have taught evening classes for over 20 years that do not finish until 9:30 om.
My creative juices do not start flowing until the afternoon or evening. I often write my blog posts around 10 pm. Alicia of forhispurpose.blog pointed out that she sees my posts are published around 4 am. Easily explained. I schedule them for that time because I have followers in different time zones around the world.
I realize for some that Jesus has called them to spend time in prayer at unfathomable hours. For me, the night watch is much better. 😉
So my dear readers, I wish to know if I am alone in the universe or are there other sane night owls like me. Perhaps there are two dimensions existing symbiotically for morning people and night owls.
Are you a morning person who wakes up at insane hours or are you a night owl?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
