Listening to a NPR news spot this morning I heard a politician say, in response to a comment made about what's important, "People don't think of politics when they first wake in the morning, their first thoughts are; How am I going to feed my family?"
He sounded passionate so I began to wonder, what do we think about when we first wake in the morning? Do we think about feeding our loved ones or is it planning for the day or revisiting dreams or loves lost or thankfulness for ________________?
And where do we do these first thoughts? In bed? On the way to the bathroom? Looking in the mirror? In the shower? During the first cup of coffee?
So, I'm looking for responses. Your first thoughts this morning or maybe some sort of pattern of thoughts. And include where you first encounter these thoughts. No names are necessary and long explanations are optional.
Let's see what we're thinking about when we're roused from sleep.
