I have been having a ‘ruff’ 24 hours…I won’t drag you through the details but sometimes setting my own p(e)ace can be taxing, especially when trying to help those around you when they are feeling a bit down.
When I arrived at work and was still dragging I got a surprise! A coworker had brought in her puppy, Fin. He instantly lifted my spirits. Playing with him reminded me that I am doing fine and to keep setting my p(e)eace. I looked back and started thinking of all the times a pup or pet has lifted my spirits when needed. They don’t even have to my pets or pets I will ever see again. I found myself petting strangers dogs twice yesterday and I always feel better after I do.
In some the ‘ruffest’ times in my life a pet has been there to remind me I am doing fine and to keep setting my own p(e)ace. What pet in your life does the same for you? How do they create so much magic?
