When I was a young boy, if I ever woke up in the middle of the night, I was afraid of the eerie stillness and presence of those wee morning hours. I’m not bothered by that any more. In fact, I love the stillness and the solitude of those tender segments in the morning. Life seems different in the quiet of a “sleeping world.” It seems more manageable, not nearly as impatient. For me, it’s good – even healthy — to often experience that quiet time of the day. I feel as though I need that time, when the world is sleeping, to organize my thoughts and get a better grip on things. It’s my time to get ahead.

If your days are filled with noise, try the stillness of the morning. You might find that some of the best thoughts surface then.
