5am and I could hear the church bells ringing, perhaps welcoming devotees to the weekday early morning mass.
Just a few days ago I would barely notice that sound because I was a chronic night owl and I would usually fall asleep in the wee hours of the morning and then wake up at noon. But a miracle and a lot of perseverance and prayers on my part helped me be able to reverse that sleeping habit. I am now a morning person. A very early morning person to be exact. I would often get up and then start my day at 2 or 3am.
It was a rather abrupt change and I’ve read somewhere in the internet that sudden changes are usually unsuccessful and they would advise that one does it gradually. But I am so thankful to God because I was able to succeed at my attempt.
I guess the lesson I learned here is that change does require effort on our part. Some changes are not easy, but if we want to, then we will be able to find a way to do it.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Happy Friday to you. God bless!
