I was having a discussion with some friends today and we were talking about what gets us up in the morning. Everyone has a variety of reasons, mine is my pets lol. What's your reason?

my reason for getting up everyday is the hope of making it better than the previous day. it is the hope of being better, of building from what has been founded to what is desired. and i pray to God to give me strength to deliver it. and i seek help from my family and friends to make it. and i compose myself to focus on what is necessary to be done each day for the higher purpose in life.

The one thing that wakes me up in the morning is knowing that I have to go to work so I can pay my bills and move forward in life, as well as help my mother. My dog does a good job of waking me up in the morning if I don't pay attention the alarm clock.

Since we are only two who live in our house, i wake up early in the morning to do my morning exercises and jogging. After a few hours I will prepare breakfast for me and my dad, then feed my chickens afterwards. There are so many other reasons for me to wake up early in the morning, but those are the most common of them all. Sometimes, when I am needed early at my work then that's one reason. Or when going to the super market to buy fresh meat and vegetable, because in our place if you won't go early to the market you will be left with wilted veggies and not so fresh meat.

Wow! I can't imagine not having fresh vegetables and fresh meat! That is something we take for granted! Thank you for reminding me of how spoiled my country is. :)

My main reasons for getting up in the morning are my husband and our daughter. They really do motivate me to get up every morning.

I think that the thing that really gets me up everyday is the fact that I'm going to have to get up out of that bed eventually. Even if it is nice and warm, and the outside world is anything but on some days. So now would be the best time for me to get out of bed and face the day. Whatever the day may bring and believe me, it might bring anything. And obviously, it is a brand new day, filled with many different possibilities. Who really just knows what is going to happen. It might be something great. There are just times where it is going to just motivate me getting out of bed, thinking that there might be something to do. And hoping that this day will be better than the last. Even if the last day wasn't bad, there's always room for improvement.

I would say that Life gets me up everyday. The knowledge that one day, it will be my last day waking up...as it will be my last day on earth. I am very aware of this and incredibly grateful for the gift of every day. Each moment is so precious, so I wake up revved for all that I have to do in order to achieve my goals of the day. There was a brief period of time that I went through a depression...and losing that will to get up in the morning, was one of the most painful feelings ever. Now, that I have my voomah back _- I do not take it for granted and give thanks. Every day is a good day...or has the potential to be one.

Well.. my cat wakes me every morning around 6.00-7.00 am so i do not have to use the alarm clock! HA HA.. The reason that gets me every day up is my work and all i have to do everyday, including feeding my cat..

I live with some really noisy people, LOL. The noise is louder some mornings than others but I usually hear some talking, the TV on low but I'm a really light sleeper 99.9% of the time, and then a car starting, and the car leaving. Then I can't usually get back to sleep easily so I just lie there trying to sleep anyways until maybe 7ish or so. Then I take care of the cat's needs and make my breakfast, wash the dishes from the others who were already up this morning, etc.

If my hubby is at home, the reason why I would get up everyday is to cook. But when he's at work, I do get up early in order to tend to my orchids. I live in a place where water is rationed and we only have water early in the morning and early evening and that is for two hours each. So you do need to do your laundry, dish washing and whatever house chores that needs water during those times. But if it is raining and hubby's not here I can stay in bed as long as I want since my plants will be watered by the rain.

Good day SassyBrat, Different people has different reason. Well, for me, the reason I get up everyday is for me to do and hit my aim. That is to earn more and be a millionaire one day. That is why, I really worked for the money. As I want to be a millionaire before I die.

There are two reasons why I get up everyday. First is because I have to go to school and I do not want to be late for class. Second is on no class days and it is because I want to start the day instead of lying around in bed wasting precious time doing nothing but daydreaming about fiction. It is always tiring to wake up but then we have to force ourselves up especially when we are tired from the previous day. Totally s***s but then that is the way life is.

what wakes me up everyday is my daughter she is nine months old so she don't let me sleep that much. she wake me up so early everyday if its not her then it would be my dog fluffy he would bark for anything and that would make my daughter wake up. and if its not the dog or my daughter then its my family they are so loud my walls are so thin in my house you could always hear someone talking..
