If you’re a bird, be an early bird

“Early bird

Oh, if you’re a bird, be an early bird
And catch the worm for your breakfast plate.
If you’re a bird, be an early bird—
But if you’re a worm, sleep late.”
-Shel Silverstein

Over the years, I have come to terms with the fact I have never been, nor will I never be, a night owl. While some of my friends find their most productive and active time of the day to be after midnight, I find myself to be the most lively and creative in the wee hours of the morning. 

There's something in the air in the early morning. I don't know if it's the quiet or if it's the cold. I don't know if it's the idea that the sun hasn't yet risen, let alone your roommates or neighbors, or it it's the idea that each new day holds an infinite amount of possibilities.  

I guess I just love the feeling of being up before the world starts to move. When no one is out and about. Maybe it is because I love to watch the sun rise or maybe it is because I can hardly wait for a day to start that will be full of new adventures and exciting things to accomplish. Maybe it's simply how I view time. Waking up early means I can make the best use of it and that I will have extra time to do what needs to be done.

 All in all, some of us are early birds, some of us are night owls. Neither is better than the other. Night owls simply love the night time, but greet the day with less than enthusiasm. Early birds thrive in the morning and don't mind going to bed before 10. (Really, we actually enjoy it!) 

So wake up. Seize the day. Go to bed. Repeat.


  1. Beautiful post. Like that line "If you are a bird, be an early bird"

  2. Gosh, I wonder who your night owl friend is...
