What wakes you up in the morning and gets you motivated for the day?
Does it motivate you?
The desire not to let my piece-of-shit tendencies get the better of me.
You mean bad habits?
Nope. Just an overall tendency to be a lazy piece of human garbage. I fight it daily. Some might call if depression.
You are not a piece of human garbage! Stop that!
But I'm not because I have to make a conscious effort every day not to be.
You are a human being. You are valuable. You can do your part to make this world a better place. Just a smile can help people feel valued. 🤗
I disagree with the premise that every person is valuable, though.
Sun rising up over the horizon, and the first rays of old sol protrudes thru a window in your bedroom. Which means to get your ass up and do something positive and productive today.
Thinking of the work I have to do gets my out of bed, or eating
Does thinking about work make you hungry?
Rumbly rumbly 😋
Hahaha nope, if I work, I forget about being hungry 💩
Your tummy needs to protest!
Haha it forgets 💩
Don’t you get headaches or dizzy? If I don’t eat at least every four hours I’m worthless.
Nope, not really
I fasted and I didn’t get bad until like the 20th hour
The thought of breakfast and coffee. And if I have enough time before work/have the day off, that’s followed by a good workout!
Do you set your coffee maker up on a timer?
Oh my god, I wish it could do that!
They make coffee makers with timers. My friend has one. She wakes up to it.
Dogs, wild ass playful dogs wanting to go out and get fed.
I can imagine.
Coke and a shower
Is the the soda or the drug?
Coca Cola, any questions?
Renegades by X Ambassadors gradually wakes me up. Then a Bible reading before I start getting ready to hit the freeways and get my three kids to their schools on time.
Bible reading helps me unwind. I read before bed.
Prayer, actually. I like to focus my morning prayers on gratitude then get going on yoga afterward.
I consider prayer a form of meditation.
The cat pokes me and kneads on me until I wake up and get him fresh food and water and attention. It would be great if only he could remember to keep his claws retracted.
Ouchers! I know that cats can get quite fat. When my friend’s cat steps on my lap it hurts.
This one is a muscular 20 pound ragdoll cat. He's very strong, but he's still my baby kitten.
Awe just has razor claws?
Mine is too old to jump up and get onto the bed so she sits in the doorway and sings to me the song of her people. Loudly. Nothing wrong with her vocal chords.
When i stay at my moms she has a huge cat that adores me... he will sleep on my belly and knead. She found him in a snow drift, ppl abandon cats there, and we think maybe his forst owner was like me. But damn when all that weight js on his leg and he pokes a boob or between ribs owww lol
Shygal that’s funny!
AJ nothing more painful than an animal stepping on your boob. Yeow!
I know that song well. My Louie is 15 years old and recently we’ve been hearing his song more and more frequently. He used to be such a quiet guy.
He isn’t so bad when he steps all over me, because he spreads his weight across some rather large feet. It doesn’t hurt so much. It’s just those pointy claws.
Some guys I use to work with had a 30lb cat. When he would step on you, you knew it!
Is he more vocal because he can’t see as well?
My kitty Miss Maggie?
She has poor eyesight, arthritis, scoliosis. Spends her day sleeping on a protected heating pad on the table next to the recliner all day long. Although some days she crawls under the guest bed and snores.
Is she more vocal since her eye sight has declined?
I love the name Miss Maggie. I find it interesting that she snores. My cat Rick snored. He’s the cat in my user profile picture. Before him, I’d never heard a cat snoring. It was the cutest little cat snore.
Hmm - now that you mention it, yes, she does sing more now with her failing eyesight.
Snore! If she’s next to me when she starts I have to turn up the tv! I don’t wake her anymore because all four legs go flying every which way and she’s been known to fall off her table. She doesn’t find that nearly as humorous as I do.
I think that cats sing more to hear their voice to get a feel for where they are or where they are going. Like a survival technique. Just my theory.
My cat and vyvanse lol
Shocking cat lady! Lol
Im so unpredictable 😜
My alarm wakes me up to remind me that if I don’t get up, I’m screwed.
Does it scream?
Fortunately(?), no. It rings.
My friend has an alarm that won’t shut off until she solves a puzzle.
I think it would piss me off haha
It would definitely do that for me, too! It might help me wake up...albeit reluctantly.
Daylight? But probably something internal, because I'm ready to get going before daylight some days. When it’s time to get up, I'd be wasting time if I didn’t.
Is it challenging for you on gloomy days?
Not at all. I wake up when I'm ready either way, and I love gloomy overcast misty days.
I perk up more on sunny days myself.
Honestly, not sure anymore ...
What do you do in the gym?
Lol smarty pants 😝
My dog usually wakes me up letting me know it’s time let her out and feed her
Do they kiss and nudge you awake?
Wet nose in the eye usually 😂 I️ also have three cats who think it’s fun to wrestle on top of me
Whoa! That’s an intense wake up call.
I drag butt until I hit the shower. Then I sing to my playlists and get motivated.
Every morning my alarm goes off on the other side of the room and I wake up to "Over the Hills and Far Away" by Led Zeppelin
