“What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder.” – Oprah Winfrey
I’m not a big fan of waking up early. While I am not one of those people who will sleep through the entire morning, I prefer to just wake up on my own. My favorite mornings are the mornings I don’t have to wake up to an alarm. I just wake up when my body is ready.
This was one morning I did not regret setting my alarm. A few years ago, we stayed with our family at Fripp Island, South Carolina during the Christmas holiday. On our last day there, I decided to wake up early that morning in order to be at the beach right when the sun came up. I did not expect it to be this beautiful. The entire sky changed color multiple times that morning. I took like a thousand photos that morning, and I felt like each one did not capture the full beauty of this morning.
This was one of the few moments where I woke up to an alarm clock, and felt good about it later. It’s not often I wake up early and fully enjoy it like this.
