Carpe Today – Watch a Sunrise

Carpe Diem

Wake up early tomorrow to watch the sun rise. I know how difficult it can be to drag yourself out of bed when it’s still dark outside; but, every once in awhile it is nice to rise before everyone else just to have a few moments of reflection before the day begins. It may sound like a Folgers commercial, but there is something intoxicating about stealing a few moments for yourself in a world where every minute of your day is accounted for. I love that instant right before the sun creeps over the horizon when your remembrance of the night meets your expectations for the coming day. That transcendent moment is worth all the trouble. Coffee is optional.
