Last night our 13-year-old granddaughter Jaina, went to her first major concert. The only concern her parents had, was the concert started late and would keep her out past midnight on a school night. Jaina is not a morning person so they were concerned about how hard it would be to get her out of bed.
When her mom got up to wake her, Jaina was already downstairs dressed and ready to go to school! She was excited to go to school and share the story of a great concert with her friend.
Having a reason to get up in the morning is a MAJOR thing! When we don’t have a reason to get up, our health starts failing.
I remember dad’s best friend Burt Reynolds saying. “Maybe I need to set a goal to obtain a Billion dollars in the bank. Not because I’m money hungry, but because I need to have a goal. Without something to strive for, there is no reason to continue doing what I’m doing.” He later created a dinner theater and a school of acting because he “NEEDED a reason to get up in the mornings”
Take a look at your life. Do you have a reason to get up?
