Good morning … Rise and shine.
I think that a large part of how we experience life is shaped by our experiences, expectations, and the images we hold in our mind.
Lately, I was reflecting back on scenes from perfect mornings …
The Perfect Start to Your Morning
Remember that good morning … where the sun is shining, the sky is blue, the grass is green, and the birds are singing.
And there’s a warm breeze that carries the essence of a garden in full bloom softly through the open window.
I’ve seen scenes like this in movies and in T.V. shows, and I’ve experienced good mornings in real life.
So what I want to create here is a reminder of just such a good morning.
Classical “Morning Sunrise” Songs
Here are a couple of classical morning sunrise songs that accentuate the start of a beautiful day:
- Call To The Cows (a section of the “William Tell Overture”) by Gioacchino Rossini
- Morning Mood by Edvard Grieg
If you need something a bit more visual to really bootstrap your day, here is a link to a video of the original classic Disney song, Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, that you might recognize:
If the video doesn’t play for you inline, you can find it online with the following link:

Be Your Own Source of Sunshine
And if you do wake up on the wrong side of the bed, here’s a quote by Sam Sundquist that reminds us how we can get a fresh start:
“Some days you just have to create your own sunshine.”
Be your own source of sunshine and shine your way to a brighter day.
I hope that between the imagery, the songs, and this little vignette of a good morning that it helps inspire the start of your day.
Let this good morning post be your little dose of sunshine.
It’s here whenever you need it.
What’s your vision or vignette of a good morning?
