Earn the Day

Being awake before the sun rises is fantastic. Working out, or simply sitting quietly reading and enjoying the first coffee of the day is glorious.

“Earn the day”, someone close to me once said.

Early, before the sun is up. This is when the day offers a few moments in pure silence. When all is still. Work your body and your mind. Wait for the sun, having had the chance to go deep into your soul, pushing the body and casting your demons out.

Appreciate silence. Appreciate the stillness that happens before the day begins.

Before all the noise of modern life. Before work, the internet, family, and life fight for your attention, enjoy silence.

Earn the day. Go in with a quiet mind.
