Today I was really organised. I set aside time to write. Tommy’s taken the kids out to the park. I’m home alone with the cat, bathing in the sunshine through the window. Just ate a spoon of hummus. Not a bad day. Even got some flowers on the table. Feeling super focused and determined. Come on Autumn. Let’s have you.
Flicking through some books for inspiration I found a passage that was just perfect. I could re word it, add to it, fluff it up a bit. But I just don’t think it’s necessary.
Quite simply. Be more dog.
‘If a dog were your teacher
These are some of the lessons you might learn…
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy
When it’s in your best interest
Let others know when they’ve invaded your territory
Take naps and 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 lay under a shady tree
When you’re happy dance around and wag your entire body
No matter how often you’re scolded
don’t buy into the guilt thing and pout
run right back and make friends
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm
Stop when you have had enough
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.
…. and nuzzle them gently.’
