When was your first sunrise experience?
July 10, 2016 10:15pm CST
Co-worker is wearing a frown again. She does it six days a week and I’m getting used to it. At first, I tried to infect her with the sunny disposition I think I have but to no avail. Well, as someone once told me, “To be happy, you must be your own sunshine.” Maybe tomorrow is a better day for her. *** But isn’t it amazing that we fill our planners with dinners and movie dates and a million other activities without actually knowing if the sun will come out the next day? I actually don’t have a planner. Yet before sleeping, I always make a tentative list of what to do the next day. What if, for the heck of it, the sun gets tired and just decides to take the day off? Random thought. *** One of the things I always wanted to do when I came here was to witness a mind-blowing sunrise. However, waking up early is but an ordeal for a night owl like me. As much as I want to tick that task off my bucket list, sleepiness always gets in the way. Then the perfect chance came. Me waking up early to see the Sun. And so I did.

This is such a beautiful picture.. it has all the components I love the rocks the seas/oceans and the sunrise. Yup I agree some people don't really have it in them to be happy.. they walk as though the weight of the world rests on their shoulders.

@sol_cee As for my first sunrise, yeah I probably can't remember that. I have photographs, but I was too young to remember it. I could see the strikingly yellow sun on top of the sea and me and my cousins playing in the sand. I bet it was fun. But I do like the sunset more. :)

I love your sunrise photo! Beautiful! I've captured lots of sunrise photos in the beaches and each time, sunrise never fails to amaze me. It is all by God's grace that the son comes to shine for a new day and hope people should learn to include prayers in their plans for the next day.

I have always been an early bird and I have seen many sunrise in my life. The best one years ago in Italy. We stayed out dining and dancing with friends all the night and instead of going to sleep we waited on the beach to see the rising sun. It was a beautiful experience.

I have not really been to the sea or the mountain to see the first sunrise, but I wish some day I could. I can see from the picture shown that the first sunrise is really beautiful when it appears on the the horizon. It is an experience I look forward to some day. Facing the sunrise, what kind of feeling do you have? I would like to know about it if you would be happy to share with us. Thank you a lot for your nice picture and discussion. Enjoy a beautiful day.

oh my, how well worth the effort! kudos to ya fer finally gettin' that chance :) 's fer yer grumpy co-worker, perhaps she's lots'n her plate 'n aint figured out how to deal with't all? perhaps nobody to speak with to ease her burdens, thus the grumpiness that seems to've taken o'er her soul.... i aint a planner neither, ne'er 'twas much good't such. always seems somethin''d occur to throw a wrench'n the 'plans' 'n thus i'd feel somewhat a failure. i jest take each day's she comes, delighted to witness both the sunrises 'n sets. big hugs!

I have more than 10 planners. The biggest and the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen was in Bangkok. I woke up at 4:50 in the morning when it was still dark and I would see the red sun coming up in that City at 6am.
