There is no better feeling than waking up early on holiday and getting a little exercise done. I fib to myself plenty and pretend that a lie in feels so much better, but it really doesn’t. Not when I realise those extra couple of hours could have been used to do something much more productive and makes the day seem so much longer.
It also helps to have a great view to look out at. One that is different from every other morning and is extra motivation. I am still feeling a little shitty from my illness but it hasn’t stopped me from wanting to make the most of the day.
As I was gazing out of this window at the concrete jungle before me I had my latest existential crisis. Yes, they really do hit me anywhere. I thought about just how unbelievably crazy it is that we are all just on this floating ball of rock heading to who knows where in this eternal universe at the speed of light without a clue as to where we have come from, and we just get on with our day. We just work our little jobs in our little cars and have created our own little bubble that- for the majority of us- rarely consists of thinking about what is above and beyond that blue sky. Every building rising from the earths materials and more impressive with every passing century, sometimes I feel like we are an alien species. I mean this view would probably look alien to earlier humans and the fact that we are a thriving civilisation in this endless expanse is pretty damn alien. The blue sky helps, it looks more like a window to the universe than a roof hiding it from us on a more overcast day.
Today I feel very alive.
