Waking up early and positive affirmations is what makes me happy. It creates such a feeling of joy and peace, well before my day with the rest of the world has started.

On days I wake up later, I know I will not be at my best because I have not dedicated the needed time for myself. I do not like feeling rushed through my day and my to-do list directing my emotions.

I like the time I have, before I am obliged to anyone else and by the time interactions with others commence, I am in a position of power over my day, emotions and duties.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
