A Routine for Freedom!

There’s just something uplifting about the weekend. It doesn’t matter how difficult the week or how busy the weekend. Saturday morning has always been a time for me to cherish.

I am not a morning person…at least I didn’t think I was. But now one of my favorite things is to start my day off early—even on the weekend.

  • Coffee and quiet time with God
  • A trip to the gym
  • Back home in time for prayer with my hubby before we start our busy day

I’ve noticed that since I began this journey six weeks ago (yep, it’s already been six weeks!) my body has begun waking up earlier. It’s like I’ve finally found my natural rhythm.

Working with this type of a schedule hasn’t been limiting at all, either. Instead it’s given me more energy and freed up my creative spirit.

So I challenge you—one not-a-morning-person to another—give it a try and see if it doesn’t change your life!
