A slice of an hour for my Slice of Life Story Challenge: Day 13.
Call me crazy but I woke up at 7:30 this morning and felt good because I slept in. As an early bird, it is a disadvantage during weekends and vacations like March Break because I am up at the crack of dawn, still.
But today, I slept in for an hour! Because the Daylight Saving Time, the time moves one hour forward. In my perspective, I woke up an hour later.
I’ll save my worries later during bed time. The clock will say that I have to go to bed when my body can still endure an hour of being up and running. An advantage is I don’t have to go to school tomorrow. I may sneak for an hour nap to catch up on a missed hour of sleep.
The timing of this time adjustment is good too. Parents do not have to fight over sending their kids to bed an hour earlier than usual and waking them up an hour earlier as well. A week will give them enough time to adjust.
Yes, it’s only an hour and yet, it’s quite an impact to everyone. The bright side: we wake up with the sun already peaking through the curtains welcoming another great day. It’s also another sign that we would be able to spend more time outdoors, open our windows to bring in some fresh air after the winter, hear more birds singing and see crocuses peaking through the earth that has been quiet during the cold months.
We lost an hour but the day seems longer. It’s how we look at things. Is the glass half full? Or half empty?
