I received this in the mail from my insurance provider.
I reflected upon it, liked what it said, and thought I'd share it with you.
"Six things dogs can teach us about being happy"
Live in the present and celebrate every day.
Dog's don't regret the past or worry about the future.
For dogs, every day is the best day,
every walk the best walk,
and every meal the best meal.
Trust your instincts.
Animals don't care about words.
They recognise what's going on beneath the surface
by paying attention to body language,
tone of voice, and energy.
Any relationship, whether its with pets or people,
depends on direct, concise, and consistent communication.
Lend an ear to those you love,
but don't try to fix their problems or take them personally.
Animals don't hold a grudge or hang on to negative feelings.
Live with purpose.
When dogs get bored,
they can develop anxiety or aggression.
These issues can be resolved when they are given
a way to contribute to the packs well-being.
Ask yourself how you can make the world a better place,
whether it's at home, at work,
or in the community.
