For a while now I've wanted to be the kind of person who gets up in the morning and goes for a run.
Oh, I have excuses. My current nine to five life means I have to get up too early for my constitution. Heck, I'm a night person! When I get myself into a job that doesn't start 'till the afternoon then I'll be able to run when I wake up.
What a load of bull. When I have a new career that lets me sleep in later I'll stay up later. And still not want to wake up. I will still want to roll over and go back to sleep.
So what is stopping me? It isn't like I go out every night of the week, and when I do go out every night isn't a late one. That was my life a few years ago, not now. Between selling my soul to the corporate devil, training for a marathon, and then getting a yoga teacher certification I calmed down the night life.
Made things a little more disciplined. And healthier.
The choice is mine. Do I stay up later to watch a TV show that I'm barely interested in (or that I can DVR) or do I hit the hay and start becoming a little bit more of the person I want to be?
Thus starts the great experiment. I may aspire to be the kind of person who gets up to run, but when I get there is that who I really enjoy being?
How long should I go at it to make a decision. Three months? A commitment to wake up before work 3-4 business days a week. Will I like that girl?
We'll see. Starting now. (And that scares me a little bit, yes it does.)
