Nov 12: Get Out

The difference between rising at five and seven o’clock in the morning, for forty years, supposing a man to go to bed at the same hour at night, is nearly equivalent to the addition of ten years to a man’s life.
— Doddridge

Let that thought sink in for a minute.


Pretty powerful, hey? This time, every morning, adds up to so much more.

How has it felt, adding a few hours to your life this past week?

How has it impacted how the rest of your day has felt?


For this morning

Nothing long to read, but instead an invitation to create space of nothing, in order to make room for everything. 

Simply--take your morning tea or coffee outside.

It could be a walk with a real mug in your hands, sitting on the grass outside your apartment building, or on your balcony.  If it’s snowy—do it anyway. We dare you.

You can choose to make that nothing time phone-free, but if you're down, would love to see a photo of your view. Share it on the DED FB group or our DEL Discord group (have you signed up yet? Jessa emailed you a link). Share so that we can all see the morning view this morning from around the world.

Spend that time fully engaged in nothing, and everything.

Every sip.

Every sigh of the morning wind.

Every thought that comes to mind now that there is finally some much needed stillness that can allow for possibility. 

Then see how your the rest of your morning feels.
