People often ask me why I wake up so early - way before I need to leave the house. I always find it hard to stay present and at peace with myself during the day. Maybe it’s because of the fast and demanding world we live in, the push notifications on our phones, or the nasty human beings that inevitably cross our paths every day. In this world, the 8-18 world (for me), my mind has a tendency to go places, worry, overthink about the past, imagine what the future will look like... And then there’s sunrise, probably the only time of the day when my brains shut up completely. It’s silent. It’s special. It’s different every day. It’s probably the only moment I stop thinking about myself and others, I stay present and admire the ever-changing beauty of this natural phenomenon. It’s there every day. It’s free. It enables me to let go. And so here it is: the reason why I wake up so early every day - including when I’ve got a day off and when I’m hangover (I must really love it!).
