What makes you get out of bed in the morning?

What makes you get out of bed in the morning?

It can be a short term or long term goal. What drives you to get out of bed every day?

    Lately, a work of art, such as a good film I’m expecting to watch, a song I feel I need to listen to… or the exciting prospect of incoming news from my friends across the globe via gmail or facebook. :D I guess, also, the hope that something new and exciting can begin today, that I get another chance at life, at living. Sometimes I’m surprised by the generosity of these seemingly gratuitous chances and imagine that life has put as much hope in me as I in it.

    At some occasions, life stops. Not with a sudden BAM! – it takes a while till the halt.
    At those times, it doesn’t matter at all if you keep on moving or not.

    But then, suddenly you notice that you want to move, that there is hope, that there is LIFE, and knowing that THIS moment always exists, is what gets ME out of bed every morning – no matter what’s actually happening in life.

    Oh, and by the way, Ben was one of the persons teaching me that; he deserves some pathetic stuff in exchange. ;)

    Hey Ben, this is Dimmy. Following your notes happy to be sure that you got positive sight at bad things. Probably the eyes and the heart are the best way to censor and store memories. All the best to you and your buddy to carry the trip on.

    Doug, have fun and be safe!

    To bring happiness to others, to laugh, to travel more, to accomplish my life list, to dance and to…..

    “Breathe deep…sit quietly…discover what soothes your soul. Retreat…reflect…be brave as you journey into the next phase of your life…find comfort from within…let your light shine from inner transformation”

    Have fun Ben & Doug! Looking forward to to reading and watching your adventures.

    I get out of bed at 7AM every morning, every day of the week.

    Reason: it’s the time my lovely baby son wakes up too. But no matter how early it is, he always makes me feel wide awake.

    I guess I should write an actual decent reason besides my plans to thwart Doug’s happiness. I saw this in a movie recently called ‘Into the wild’, so I cant take credit for being well read, but there is a quote in there by Henry David Thoreau which says Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.”
    This gets me out of bed.

    I live to jump out of that bed, crash into my jeans, thunder down the stairs and get outdoors. As soon as I can see all of the sky and catch up on what the clouds and wind and birds and trees are up to already for the day, I am alive. I despise sleep. I would probably sleep outdoors but I have deep negative feelings about bugs.

    My mission is to be the best person I can be.

    Animals are my passion so I’ve joined up with my local SPCA and am now on the board of directors and working very hard to raise money for the shelter.

    I love helping out with non profits.

    I think we all need to work on the mission of being happy. Happiness spreads in everything we do.
