I did it. I woke up shortly before six a.m. (two hours before I usually do) and got a lot of editing done. I have to admit that it was not easy and when the alarm went off, I was tempted to change my mind.
As my eyes refused to open, I played with the idea of starting the new schedule tomorrow instead of today. But then I thought that if I didn't do it today, I never will.
I finally dragged myself out of bed and to the living room table, wishing I were a coffee person (that will never happen). I switched on the computer, surrounded myself with my reference books, and tuned into an online radio. Then I just dived in without wasting too much thinking about it. It worked.
When I resurfaced, I had reached my goal for the day and was so proud of myself. I even squeezed in a few minutes of exercise before leaving for the office.
I must say, I actually love this. I feel fantastic and energetic. I can imagine myself becoming a morning person after all. I love the feeling of having accomplished so much before my day begins.
Thanks for the encouragement, dear friends.
