For the past few weeks, any day that was not spent giving excellent customer service to the at the shopping destination that provides my employment, I have spent it in bed. For a while there I couldn't even open an eye before noon, and couldn't turn a shower knob till after one. But today I broke that cycle. Talk about will power! Sure, maybe it had more to do with the fact that I went to bed early and didn't watch re-runs of television shows I don't even care about till three in the morning, but I was able to get out of bed, and make it, and shower by 8am! This is a huge accomplishment for me. Emphasis on the me part. Other people may get up and do this without even thinking about it (ie. my father) but for me who has not gotten up at 6 am for 35 years I will count it as a small victory.
