The other day I was talking with a friend about how I try to drink a glass of water every morning right after I wake up. “It’s kind of a ritual for me,” I said jokingly. She teased me back: “You’ve got a lot of those, don’t you?” And she’s right. I’m a morning ritual kind of gal. I love waking up and having a pattern to follow, something to get my day started. But I wasn’t always like that.
