Confession time.  I am 47-years-old and have never been into mornings and I am not EVER going to be into mornings!  I have sucked up every last article about “10 Things Successful People Do, Get Up Early,” well, how do you define success, really?  Is it when you are in a mode of production?  Is it when you are pleasant?  Just those two items alone would cause huge issues if it is before 8:00 am and before my 2nd cup of coffee!

I know, you the reader may wish to change my tune.  I have to say, it is not going to happen after this length of time.  I truly am blessed as I think our entire household, including my wonderful rescue dog Sampson, is not into mornings. 

I will never be a morning person!   www.herviewfromhome.comIs it possible that great things happen in the evening?  Yes I say so!  If you are riding in my car during a beautiful sunset moment, prepare yourself to take a picture or I will have to pull over!

I will never be a morning person!   www.herviewfromhome.comIn my estimation, you never NOT EVER miss a beautiful sunset!  This is the time of day that you breathe deeply and you take in the end of the day.  Count your blessings, be a blessing to someone you know needs it and just soak in what God has given you!  So, if success is determined on being a morning person, I am not that person!  My recommendation, take in a sunset, enjoy each and every moment you are given and above all, remember to give it your all everyday and great things will come your way!

“For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.”~Philippians 4:13
