Wake Up Time

Duff here. Mom and I have a ritual, A specific pattern We follow to begin the Day. First, the little Westminster chime clock sounds the hour. For whatever reason, the Timepiece is 7 minutes Faster than the usual hour. This gives Mom time to stretch and begin to waken. The back up is The Alarm on Her cell phone, left in another room. (Clever Mom.) If She’s too slow for Me, I shake My Tags in My Carrier. That does it, for She is up and at ‘Em. After She makes Her Bed, (She’s a Good Kid) She unlatches My carrier. We do a meet and greet all of Our own, ending with My Ear Rub. Ah, luxury. Living unstuck.

But there is a place close by with a Very Different Method. As We saunter by in the early Morning hours, Lights flash. Then Stop. Then Flash. Then stop. We have observed this phenomenon for Minutes on end. From what We can figure out, the Person inside must be a very heavy Sleeper. It reminded Mom of the Time She had an Early Morning Class and would set a double bell alarm clock in a Metal Waste basket. When the Alarm did ring, She described levitating in the Bed, revolving Three times, then gently Landing. And yes, She did get up on Time. Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You have a Gentle wake Up routine? Or do You require something more Forceful? I say: Be kind to Yourself. Perhaps setting a timer for Lights in another Room would do the Trick. Or whatever tickles Your fancy. The last resort? Unless You have a Strong Heart, The double bell alarm clock in the Metal Waste basket. It works for sure! Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#wake-up-time

Life is getting up an hour early to live an hour more.
