There is something important that we all must know and that dogs come by naturally, and that is that life is a gift. When we realize this, we can have a very different experience because we don't get caught in the angst or the pain, which is far too easy for us humans!
Dogs wake up every day excited for whatever is about to happen. They don't make lists, or punish themselves by staying up all hours trying to complete them. They don't struggle with wondering silly stuff like what if things go wrong. They don't get worked up about little things because they are more excited about simply being alive.
When was the last time you thought, wow, I'm alive, and I'm so grateful. When was the last time you remember waking up excited to take on the day. When do you allow yourself to consider, what if, things go right?
Dogs know instinctually who they are and the role that they play, they don't have to worry about these things, but we do. It's natural for us to wonder about who we are in the world and what we role we are supposed to play in life. We could be envious of dog, for not having to trouble themselves with these things, but instead perhaps we can learn.
Maybe we too can begin to find our excitement for each moment with the simple act of gratitude for the fact that we are alive today. We woke up this morning and not everybody did. Celebrate being alive and allow yourself to live in the possibilities of the unknown, because what if it all works out?
