Thoughts on Early Morning in Sandy UT
I have already been up five hours, and it's only 9am. It is my choice ("sleep is an optional extra").
Not your drag 'em up kicking and screaming type of up or I have to get up because it's up to me type of up, but a joyful choice to start a new, productive day and I don't want to miss a minute of it type of up.
I have goals, written goals. I have a plan. Not fixed in stone, mind you, but measurable and tweakable (love these modern words for imprecise description).
Plenty of time for feeling and writing gratitude.
Not only have I been able to pursue some rewarding, creative work, and some reading, but for exercise I ventured outdoors in my chair with my dumbells, to watch the sun rise over the mountains of the Wasatch Front. My mountains by adoption, my inspiration, the views of my choice, part of my reason to choose to live in Sandy UT, in this adventure called life. Sandy UT is a great place to live.
You are all in different locations, by choice. I hope you get to appreciate where you live as much as I do wherever I am.
