Let your moon and stars flag fly!

  It would be really nice if I could hop out of bed in the morning with a smile on my face and a spring in my step and right away start getting things done.     I have wished this for over 30 years, ever since I had to start getting up for school.   And its just not going to happen.  I'm done fighting it!

  Accepting that I am at my best after noon is just the way it is.  All that I get from trying to be a morning person is grumpiness and suffering.   I can only do it with lots of caffeine and I have given that up again, except the occasional cup socially. 


  There are those people out there that talk about getting up at 4 a.m. to work before the spawn get up and how much they get done.  Blurg.   I sleep in.......and I love it!     I have always had a hard time falling asleep at night.  Ever since I was a little girl.   In the morning is when I have some of my most memorable dreams and ideas. 

  I can work like a horse though at midnight!   My best workouts, runs, and yoga have been at night.  My best art is always made in the late afternoons at that wonderful time of day when the light is just right and the mood is mellow.   It's best in the summer when the air is warmer and the scents of summer come out to inspire the mind and soul.  You know the ones, BBQ, fresh cut grass, flowers, laundry. 

   I am thankful for a laptop to and headphones.  I am thankful for spawn that can sit quietly and watch a show or play a game on their iPads in the evenings.   I am thankful that our schedule has lots of freedom and flexibility for me to do things in the afternoons and evenings  AND to sleep in if I want to.  

  For now, we are homeschooling all four of the spawn and I LOVE not being woken up by an alarm unless its to go have coffee with my neighbor. 

  So,  I raise my cuppa herbal tea to the night owls out there!!! Don't feel bad for not being a morning person.  Let your moon and stars flag fly loves!

  Are you a morning person or a night owl?  Whats your secret to productive mornings that flow and are not super forced?
