Embracing Our Unique Mornings: Lessons from a Red Lion
As I was working on my latest digital art drawing, I was struck by the image of a red lion wearing a cute hat. He looked fierce and intimidating at first glance, but upon closer inspection, I noticed the tiredness in his eye and the weary expression on his face. It made me think about how everyone has their own unique way of approaching each day, and how it’s important to embrace those differences.
It’s no secret that some people just aren’t morning people. It can be difficult to get up early and start the day, and there are plenty of us who need a little bit of extra time to fully wake up and get moving. But just because some people don’t hop out of bed with a smile on their face doesn’t mean they’re not excited for the day ahead. It’s important to recognize that everyone has their own unique way of approaching each day.
The red lion in my drawing is a perfect example of this. He may look intimidating at first glance, but once you get to know him, you realize that he’s just not a morning person. He has a long day ahead of him and needs a little bit of extra time to wake up and get going. It’s a reminder that appearances can be deceiving, and that we should take the time to get to know people beyond their outward appearance.
In a world that often values productivity and efficiency above all else, it’s important to remember that not everyone operates on the same schedule. Some people are at their best early in the morning, while others don’t really hit their stride until the afternoon or even later in the day. That’s okay. We should all strive to work at our own pace and find the schedule that works best for us.
As someone who is not exactly a morning person myself, I’ve learned to appreciate the quiet moments of the early morning. It’s a time to gather my thoughts and prepare for the day ahead. I may not be bouncing out of bed with boundless energy, but that doesn’t mean I’m not excited for what the day has in store. It’s just a matter of finding my own rhythm and pace.
We should all strive to work at our own pace and find the schedule that works best for us. So whether you’re a morning person, a night owl, or somewhere in between, embrace your own unique way of approaching each day.
