smell of possibility, i love the smell of possibility in the morning, quotes about mornings,

Waking up is hard. I love Zooey Deschanel’s quote on the topic: “In an ideal world no one would talk before 10 am. People would just hug, because waking up is really hard.” I feel that way before I’ve actually gotten up and I’m just laying in bed scrolling through my newsfeed on my phone. But once I’ve sufficiently bribed myself to get out of bed with some iced chai tea (I’m one of the crazy people who still drinks iced drinks in the winter), I normally find myself actually enjoying the morning.

Morning is a pretty amazing time when you think about it. Each morning that we wake up, God is blessing us with a brand new day of life to live as we choose. And even if yesterday you were quick-tempered with your family or you didn’t get everything accomplished that you wanted to, today you have a fresh, new opportunity to do better. Learn from the things that happened in the past and be mindful of that wisdom going forward into the new day.

If you start each morning with the right perspective, you can fully take advantage of all that the day has to offer. I’m so grateful that His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23) and for the possibilities of a new day!

For this post, I’m linking up with the Ember Grey Blog for the Grateful Heart Monday Linkup.

    Love this, it is so good to remind ourselves of how Jesus is so good. Everyday. And I am like you, I need a little bribery, except mine currently is a hot apple cider ;) haha!

      Thank you! And you’re right, it really needs to be something we remind ourselves of every single day. I’m planning on trying to start doing some Bible study/prayer time in the morning when I first wake up. Oh and hot apple cider is also so good. I need to see if I still have some…Thanks for stopping by! :)

    What a good reminder that every morning is a fresh start and a beautiful reminder that His mercies are new with every rising of the sun! I love that Zooey quote, by the way!
