There's something liberating about not needing an alarm clock. Either because your body is a well oiled machine, waking at just the right time, every morning OR because you happen to have that much flexibility in your day that you can rise when you want. I struggle, because I want to get up and get at it every morning, but I abhor alarm clocks. They are little sleep stealing trouble makers, forcing you to leave behind the comfort of your well warmed sheets to confront a busy day. I reject thee alarm clock.....if only I didn't need you so....sometimes.
