As Honey’s alarm went off this November morning the bedroom was pitch dark. I had been sound asleep and was convinced it was earlier than normal. I was shocked to see it was 7:15am. Usually, by this time of day, I have brewed a cup of coffee and am deep into catching up on all the latest news my iPad offers. You know, reading the important stuff like my favorite decorating or fashion blog. I even commented that it felt WAY earlier and Honey said solemnly, “like 5:00am. ”
The question is not will we go through change, but will we grow through change.
This post might fall into the category of “you know you are getting old when…” As time marches I am more aware that I need to allow myself the right to shift my outlook, change my ways. In fact, even encourage myself to explore fresh ideas.
Now I long for daylight savings to get here a little quicker. NO! I love the light of late afternoon. Don’t make the skies any darker and sooner. Repeal the daylight savings program. These past thoughts are pushed aside: I must be getting old to crave more light in the morning hours. (Then again, maybe the pre-dawn brain haze was just a sugar hangover from Halloween.)
I must be getting old, or at least older. Yikes. So I’m going to try to remember this simple lesson: life is always changing and I can change, too.
