Sometimes I beg my 5am alarm,
“Please, not today.
Can’t you see that I’m exhausted!”
But my 5am alarm doesn’t care,
and continues to bark;
“Too bad, Joel. Don’t be lazy–
You promised the universe you would help others today.
It’s time to get up!”
Even after YEARS of getting up at 5am, I still struggle some mornings.
While most mornings I get up for myself, sometimes I get up for YOU guys.
So thank you, for holding me accountable every day.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
