It's only taken 5 years in the working world, but I've finally had the PERFECT Monday Morning. (No, I didn't take the day off. ha That'd be cheating) It's a combination of the perfect mix CD & my "Be Better" for Lent plan.
Why did it take me so long to realize I absolutely hate my alarm clock? I finally switched to one with a CD player & asked my wonderful friend & master of mixtapes, Emma, if she would burn me a morning mix. She took so much care to pick songs that start soft & then energize, seriously it's like every track, so I don't startle awake anymore & hate the world. And the variety... oh baby... everything from Kanye & Jay-Z to Red Hot Chili Peppers to Indie I've never heard of before but am falling in love with. If mixtapes were a job Emma would be a millionaire.
Once I finished my little bed dance party (that sounds dirty... I'm just talking about jamming to my mix before I face the world haha) I had to pack up all my food for the day. So I actually COOKED before 7am, had an amazing breakfast & brought a lunch I can actually be excited for.
These next 2 weeks will be a test for me. I'm moving to a bigger apartment at the end of the month & I really need to push my running training to get back on track. So between packing, cleaning & running, I anticipate a lot of tired... hopefully a solid morning plan like this will help to get me through.
