::Early Riser::

I woke up this morning at 6 am sharp.
Which is really unusual for me, I like a good 10 hours of beauty sleep.
However I couldnt fall back asleep, so after tossing for about 45 mins I decided to get my ass out of bed.
I have a lot to do this am before heading out to work.

I decide to walk to starbucks for a little pick me up.
As I am strolling down Montana Ave, I am over come with complete peace and happiness.
I took the time to actually look at my surroundings and appreciate them.
These past months have been so stressful and I have been so focused on the bad things in life I have neglected to see any of the good.

I have come to realize in these weeks maybe months a few things;

-There are always going to be nasty people in your life, the challenge is to not stoop to their level.
-Life isnt perfect, and something will always go wrong.
-Love, true life long love, will over come any obstacle.
-I need to take time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Like cool morning walks to starbucks, cuddling with my boyfriend, and the feel of my chihuahua licking me a 5 am. For these are the things that get your through the bad times.
-Take pictures of the bad days, not just the good. Because then and only then do you see your true character.
-Most important.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
