The Steam Awakens
"Waking up early in the morning...better not sleep too late tonight..."
These are the words I'd whisper to myself almost every night in a week. Since I got a permanent job working from half 8am till half 6pm, I try very hard not sleep less than 7 hours a day. Nodding off during work is probably not a good idea, especially when I have to deal with customers.
What about weekends? I would get up the same time I would have to go to work. Drive to somewhere far from the city and enjoy the peaceful morning without work and unwanted noise.
I'd stop by a cafe, order a simple breakfast and hot drink. Looking at my bowl of hot food...a little warm feeling filled in my head. When was the last time I'd just slow down and realise the beauty of the steam vaporising above the bowl? I probably stopped for a minute or two just watching the little film of "The Steam Awakens".
There are two types of mornings. The morning I have to get up for work and the morning I'd choose to get up for a breakfast out of city. And it is those morning I have plenty of time to slow down, to think and to remind myself the goals in my life. With that, the steam awakes myself too loll
