Why do you wake up in the morning?

I heard something the other day: "That's why I get up in the morning."
It was said in response to someone thanking them for doing XYZ. Sort of matter of factly. As if it was no big deal. With no arrogant intent, I am sure.
But it got me thinking.
That's a pretty bold statement.
We all wake up in the morning, but we all don't have the same agenda.
So, why do you wake up in the morning?
I posed that question to Twitter, and the below is some of what came back. It was nice to see what is on the forefront of your mind when your eyes first open each day.
Please share why you wake up in the morning with a comment at the bottom of the page.
Because I want to do stuff. I don't like sleeping in, feels like I am wasting time.
To make life better for my family, colleagues and clients
The hope that I can finally be the person I dream of being.
Because I've got to take every day by the reigns if I'm going to make it.
I love what I do.
Because sleep is unproductive.
I wake up in the morning because I know that when I do, I will set off for a day full of people I love, work I enjoy doing, and spending time on the things that mean the most to me.
Because thankfully.. God granted me another day.
to make cool shit.
I wake up every morning to create something, in any aspect of the word.
The thought of finally meeting her.
To keep my story moving forward (the protagonist must go on!).
I have two beautiful children and a kick ass hubby to enjoy
