As I woke up to get ready for work, I questioned this whole daylight savings idea. Every year spring and fall I grumble and wonder why anyone thinks you can stretch the amount of daylight and whose brilliant idea it was to change the time. Psychologically, it messes with all of us whether we want to admit it or not.
But this year, as my animals looked at me confused as to why I was getting up an hour earlier, I decided to take a different approach. I chose to look at the world that usually I am sleeping during this time and see what there was to experience. This morning the sun had not yet risen and I got to enjoy the moon and the stars in all their glory.
Moments we can’t control are moments we need to slow down and breathe; choose to look at life as a passenger and enjoy the ride.
