At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”
~ Marcus Aurelius
With the weather getting cooler, how tempting it is to stay in bed that little bit longer?
Even though it was written nearly two thousand years ago, by a person who was arguably the most powerful man in the world, that it would be relevant today?
This follows on from yesterday’s post about waking up before the alarm.
Are you doing what you were born for?
