“Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of ambition
And yawn and stretch and try to come to life”
Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” (currently tearing it up on TikTok) is literally about working hard for a living, but it’s that second line that gets me.
Obviously, a “cup of ambition” is coffee … but does it have to be?
When you get up to go to class or you down to study, what’s your ambition? Why are you doing this?
Start each day by reminding yourself why you’re doing what you’re doing, and you’ll be a lot more motivated and prepared to meet the day.
