Why to get up?
For today I know why I got up. The men who'll put a new board on the balcony will come at 8am. The last time when they came (without appointment) I was still in bed. I ran to the door to the intercom and asked who was there. When I knew that they wanted to enter our flat, I said: Give me 5 min. He: In 10 min we ring the bell again. Sigh, yeah 10 min was much better.
When I don't have to get up at 5am to be on time for a Mysore class, I also don't go to bed early. Then I don't get up early. It's a circle.
Today I'm ready. The men can come now, I'm fully dressed, a bit of lipstick gives me a fresh look.
Yesterday I read about a very famous singer, that he has no reason to get up. He is depressed. He quitted alcohol, nevertheless he doesn't see a reason to get up in the morning. This is a burden to carry around.
Many get up because they have a job and if they don't appear they will lose it. They don't want to lose the job even though they don't like it. I've been there.
Usually I get up to do yoga. I need it, I think, This is an artificial reason. We need food and air to survive. Yoga is luxury. Yoga betters my life, That's it. Not only the body gets trained, also the mind.
I also get up because I'm looking forward to the first cup of coffee. Tiny joys count, too.
I get up to take pictures. The fascination of this world is still alive in me. I love to create something.
This is why I get up. Happenings.
Why do you get up in the morning?
