When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Marcus Aurelius

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: EARLY BIRD For this week’s photo challenge, get up early and explore the morning light. This week (and especially if you’re among those who find the early bird concept cringe-worthy), I encourage you to set your alarm for the early hours, grab your first (several) cups of coffee, and challenge yourself to capture an outstanding photograph in the early morning light.
Positive Motivation Tip: See the grace in getting up to see the glow of a new day; come sun or shine, just arise!
