It’s Day #2 of the Get Up Early Challenge! This morning, when my alarm went off at 5 AM, I did not want to get up. My bed was warm. The house was cold. And I came up with a dozen other excuses as to why I should go back to bed.
But then I reminded myself that the first week of any habit-building is always the hardest. If I give up on Day 2, I’ll not only set up today for failure, I’ll also miss the benefits that are waiting for me in the coming weeks.
So, I got up. Reluctantly. And not with the greatest attitude. But I got up.
And that’s half the battle. Sometimes, you have to just do the next right thing — and your attitude will change as a result of your actions.
It certainly did today! Because it’s 5:45 am now and after spending time reading, praying, journaling, and thinking, I feel so much better. And I’m ready to face today!
I’ll be hopping on Periscope at 7:30 a.m. to share some Morning Motivation encouragement and to some thoughts and insights from The 5AM Miracle book. I’d love for you to join me or watch the replay (just download the app and search for @MoneySavingMom).
