When Is Early Too Early?

Updated on June 15, 2018

As I Struggle To Open My Eyes

The year is 2018

Here it is the middle of June

Five thirty three in the morning

We had a little rain last night

It's Friday

Most people are all excited because the weekend is only one day away

Me not so happy

I always work weekends in the restaurant business

This Sunday being Fathers Day

We will be busy

I am a cook and get paid hourly

So no matter how busy we get I still get paid the same when we are slow

Most coworkers like it busy

So the time flies bye

I take a different approach

I want the time to go extra slow

This is my life

If today was the last day on earth for me

I want to enjoy every moment

So each day I treat the same way

Not rushing along till the end of time

Slowly appreciating what we see and experience every day

I think when we get so busy

We lose touch with ourselves and the people around us

We are in such a hurry to do this

Go here

Get the job done

We miss out

From the littlest flower to the greatest moment

Life is not just living

But living and enjoying

All the wonderful things that make up our life

Sure there are things mixed in that aren't the greatest

If we stay positive and strive for beauty

They will be few and far between

So as my day starts

The world has already been in full swing

So instead of trying to play catch up

I will just take a deep breath

Love this moment

Then try to repeat it as many times as I can

If I struggle

I know to keep on trying

Because there is always a lot more good to come

      Linda Crampton Last night was a busy night and I didn't even have time to think. I am lucky my body just kicks it in to high gear and then I work my butt off. It's a days pay that I can be proud of. I earned every penny. Now today I am off. I get to go to my own little sanctuary and enjoy all the peace and quiet I also deserve. Thank you so much for reading and sharing such beautiful thoughts. Wishing you a beautiful day like no other.

      lunaticdiaries All things take time. It took us a long time to get at this point and along time to change it to something different. Have patience and enjoy small differences that point us in the right direction. There is good in everything. We just have to keep looking until we see it. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. Off today and trying to comment and thank all of you for your time. Enjoy the day.

      Gypsy Rose Lee What a great way to get a jump on every day. I am sometimes just going to bed when you are getting up. We just pass each other. I have always worked nights my whole life so it is normal for me to be up 1:00 to 3:00 A.M. Then if I get a good thought or writing idea I just keep writing till it's done. Thank you for sharing and caring. Have a wonderful morning.

      This is an interesting poem. I think it is worth going slow whenever possible, for the reasons that you've described.

      Be in the now & take a deep breath. Let those around you race at 100mph, find your comfort zone & stay the course at your own pace.

      You map out a good way to live for all. Someday, maybe we can find a different tag than the Human Race.

      I have become an early bird and usually do not sleep past 8 AM and sometimes waking up at 6 AM and no more sleep.

      Tamara Yancosky Moore That's what I call an early riser. That's when I go to bed. Hopefully our paths cross many times in between. Have a wonderful night and rhyme away in the night. When you awake you will have the energy of three people. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.
