Your Life is Your Story to Write!
I know I am posting a bit later than I normally do…. But, I am a busy business woman!
Angus told me that he thinks it is better for me to post late than not at all. He is very concerned about his reputation.
When we walk past the chalk board today I noticed that it was nearly blank. Which got me thinking. That is a message in itself. Your life is your story. So, write it!
Dogs are not entirely in control of their lives. Let’s face it. For the most part their humans are the shot callers. But, Angus does have some control. If he is in the mood for a slow paced walk, there is not a lot I can do about it. If Angus wants to stop every few moments to smell the flowers, then that is what we will be doing.
So, you write your own story. I know, that sounds kind of scary, and really a lot of pressure. But, if you take a few breaths, you will realize that it is actually the opposite of a high pressure scenario. If you are writing the story as you go, there isn’t any expectations! No one is telling you what you are supposed to do. Really, you can create whatever kind of life that will make you happy! Pretty awesome right!?
I am not saying that writing your own story will not be a lot of work. Most of the time, it is. But, it should be the kind of work that you enjoy. Sure, sitting on the couch watching TV is safe and for the most part, it can bring you some pleasure. If that is your dream, then go for it. But remember, you are the only person that truly is in control of your life. You are your biggest obstacle (usually). If you can just let go and be brave, you can take control of your life. You can write your own story!
Love, Elise & Angus
