30 Things to Look Forward to in the Mornings.

I love mornings.

The world just feels so fresh, so new, so alive.

I love the peace, the quiet, the way the world feels still and yet also vibrant, buzzing with life.

There’s an aliveness about this time of the day.

I’ve been a morning person since I was young, since as long as I can remember; mornings have always felt magical to me.

Earlier this morning, I asked this question to one of our social media pages:

“What do you most look forward to in the mornings?”

There were so many comments! There were quite a few comments like “going back to bed” or “nothing.” There was even a “resetting the alarm,” which made me giggle. I know not everyone is a morning person.

But there were also so many answers about what people genuinely look forward to in the mornings, and it made me smile.

Here are 30 things to look forward to in the mornings, from Elephant readers:
