We incarnated on this Earth to learn, experience, and enjoy life. The latter part, enjoying life, seems to be something most of us forgot due to conditioning by society – and much more.
Being retired, I am fortunate to be able to rest and plan my life as I please – away from the daily hustle and bustle. I can sleep in, do what I want, and just relax. But, ……
That does not work for me which probably does not come as a surprise to people who know me well.
So, on June 5 we are getting a new family member, the wonderful Luna, who is a Golden Retriever puppy <3. We are looking very much forward to that – and sleeping in, just relaxing etc. will be put on hold for a very long time, I imagine. Up and out during the night, walks several times a day in all kinds of weather, puppy training with other puppies once a week (in all kinds of weather) will be my new reality. I will be exhausted – and I cannot wait…….
I know it is going to be tough for a few months, but I realized that I need more love, laughter, and fun in my life, not to mention a purpose. As a dog is x kilos of unconditional love, I could not imagine a better way to improve my life.
We already have two cats, Bumle and Tulle, and I hope they will receive their new sister with love <3– or at least accept her to begin with (cat style), and love her a little later <3.
With everything going on in the world right now, I want to concentrate even more on high energy and spirit, staying close to home, enjoying friends and family and neighbors, growing a vegetable garden (my husband’s job, God bless him), enjoying nature including a beach and a forrest near by.
I am convinced that is the best strategy for me right now.
What is your best strategy for coping with what is going on in the world right now?
