Surely 10 more minutes can’t hurt?

“The universe is not short on wake up calls. We’re just quick to hit the snooze button!” ~Brené Brown~ I was waiting for the alarm to go off. I had set it to go off at 6.45 am and then I had allowed myself to snooze… just another 10 minutes… In my half sleep state I was slightly wondering when the next alarm was going to go off but I allowed the lull of the moment to keep me in bed and knowing the second alarm would surely go off when it was time….
