As to why I'm I a morning person, well I'm not as sure of where that comes from. Part of me thinks that it must just be the brute force of genetics at work, as I seem to just be compelled to wake up with the sun each day. I know there could be learned aspects to this all, but I do have three brothers and to the best of my knowledge none of them share my affinity for starting the day off early (even on weekends). I do think that being a morning person comes with a certain amount of natural optimism. No, I am not claiming that non-morning people are negative, but for me waking up in the morning means two things:
- I get another day on this Earth.
- I get a chance to "make it right" today. Whatever I did yesterday is history, and I now have a chance to make it a little bit better today.
Here's to mornings, even when they are chilly and damp.
