On days when I have to get up really early for work, my dog is the most excited. I don’t know what it is about early mornings, but she wags her tail and makes funny groany sounds and runs around my bedroom and the living room. She’s not like this on days when I sleep in. I’m wondering if it’s just because the sun isn’t up yet. But she loves mornings.
The other morning I got up and she got extra excited. She ran as fast as she could around the living room, then launched herself full speed onto my couch while I sat down to put my shoes on. If you only knew my dog, you would know that she’s usually indifferent to everything. We call her a cat dog. She doesn’t even get that excited to be fed, unless it’s part of your dinner, or it’s her night time treat. It was absolutely hilarious.
It just makes me wish I was that excited about things in my life as she is to go on a walk at four in the morning. And maybe I am. I’m excited about music and poetry and my future with my love. But do I show it enough? I want to run around and wag my tail and jump on the couch.
Find something that makes you as excited about life as my dog is about going for walks in the morning.
