I started hearing this when I was growing up that one should rise up early in the morning with the sun. We used to go to school early in the morning. But things changed later to different scenarios. I joined the 2nd shift college and as a result, waking up till late night shifted the habit of early in the morning to noon. After that, the jobs I was doing for earning for the living also demanded me to start my visits to the market in the noon. Collectively the environment around me never pushed me to wake up early in the morning but to stay awake at night. As a result, I am now finding it hard to wake up early in the morning.
I do remember that when I joined the call center, I was going for the shift and 10 PM and coming back at 7 AM. This was the time when I started seeing the face of the morning again. But as I was working two jobs, marketing in the day and call center in the night, I was not able to enjoy the morning time. I was tired all the time and was working 21 hours a day. Sleeping was the only blessing I was enjoying in 2-3 hours and Sunday was like a day in heaven i.e. sleeping the whole day. No one asked me to do this, neither I was pushed by the circumstances but I was in a race with my elder brother. As my brother was earning a handsome salary, I decided to work hard and reach his salary just for fun.
Next face was freelancing, when I was working 6 AM to 1 PM for Singapore client, 2 PM to 6 PM for another client and 6 PM to 3 AM for a US client. I was in a room for almost a year doing jobs like these and I realized that my social life has become zero that's where I decided to reduce the working hours and enjoy the rest of the time with family.
Anyhow, I described the whole scenario in order to show the picture of why I was unable to enjoy the morning time. I am waking up early in the morning from last 3 days and I am loving it. I enjoy the peace, I see the sky, I hear the birds and then I start working. I have started sleeping early after playing badminton and that is how I am able to wake up early in the morning. Though I take a nap again between 10 AM to 1 AM and this nap is the sweetest nap that I am enjoying.
This is the second step which is adding positivity in my life. First one was starting badminton again. I hope that I am going to keep this up and enjoy the blessings of life as Allah is blessing me. I would love to hear how you are living your life and how you add new experiences and positivity in your life.
