Creating 2015—Day 25:   Dawn

I finally slept eight straight hours without getting up to pee!  Now, I realize for many people that might not be something to boast about but for me, well, it is.  I’m a night pee-er.  Usually at least once, half way through my slumber, I wake up in the middle of the night to go whiz.  The main reason is because I’m also a night tea drinker.  I’ve tried to break myself of this habit but I do love my cup o’ chamomile before bed.  I also have a few vitamins I take with water right before bed.  Thus, my peeing mid-way through sleepy time issues.   It’s fuzzy in my brain now but I’m pretty sure I did NOT have my tea last night before bed, just took my vitamins.  That explains it.  Why am I so happy about not peeing in the middle of the night?  Because I woke up nice and early.  I woke up at dawn.  Which is my favorite time of the day.

The definition of dawn is delicious.  As a noun dawn means daybreak or beginning.  As an intransitive verb it means begin, become apparent, start to exist.  Hmmmm, let’s start to exist!  Personally, I think of dawn as the time before the sunrise.  The sun is on its way but it hasn’t made a full appearance yet.  But you can start to see.  It’s waking up the world with its light.

The sun waking up the world.

Dawn

 Oh, there it is.  The full blown sunrise.  Beautiful.

Sunrise

I feel awake.  Alive.  Rested.  Ready to create a new day…and some clean clothes.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…a new day.
