Lessons from the Dog
And from Cindyloo Who:
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
§ When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
§ Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.
§ Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.
§ Take naps.
§ Stretch before rising.
§ Run, romp, and play daily.
§ Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
§ Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
§ On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
§ On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
§ When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
§ Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
§ Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.
§ Be loyal. Never pretend to be something you're not.
§ If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
§ When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by
Thanks for the reminder Cindy.
