Waking up at 5 o’clock in the morning every single day doesn’t work for some people, even for the ones who want to learn how to be successful in doing what they love.
I don’t expect everyone to be having sex that much or to want it at all. Let’s say I’m talking out of my vagina but if you @ me, I’m ready for it.
I sleep at 1 a.m. from Monday to Friday and struggle to wake at 5 to get my kid ready for school. In the weekends, I fall asleep at 2 a.m. and wake up at 10. Our bodies deserve more than the sleep we’re getting and I’m speaking of nocturnals like me. We love to stay up at night while everyone’s in dreamland so we could be, in our own little worlds, at peace.
I love to write with nothing but silence or the music of my choice. The neighbor’s dog may be annoying but I wish they’d just give the poor thing what it needs.
I write before bed and when I get up, while having a coffee and cigarette.
The D’s that I like besides dogs and the “obvious”, ( that you’d know about if you’ll follow me on Instagram ) are dreams, drive, discipline and determination. I’m not the most disciplined person in the world but I know, as many do, that it’s one of the most important traits that successful people have.
I haven’t had enough success but I love that I’m driven to get more. Every day is another chance to learn new things. I will never be all knowing for as long as I live on this planet but I have time.
If you think you have nothing, think of time. You own your time. Spending time on what’s truly worth it is an act of self-care. Why waste it on things that could hurt you, or never even do anything for you?
What you do with your life is always your decision.
Set your own standards. Living with the D’s, working on yourself non-stop and learning how to be better as a person, and artist, entrepreneur and whatever you are now and becoming—that’s the way to be successful. And get enough sleep! If you don’t, just try to get around it without hurting yourself.
I’m just an old cat sharing a few struggles that I brought on myself and things I’ve learned through the days. And I know I’m not alone.
