The only freedom 

The only freedom that can not be taken away from us in any circumstance in life is our choice of how we react. 

It is a choice we face every moment of every day. How we react to others, to situations and to our own internal voice. 

With any choice comes an outcome and taking responsibility for that choice. 

We still have it whatever choices we make and whatever comes our way in life. 

Great, isn’t it?

Be more dog

‘Cookie’ by Philip Dodson

I read a lovely article today online about a boy and his dog.

It struck me as a dog owner, that Cookie, our dog, is always pleased to see you in the morning, her whole body wags, then as soon as you go out, she sits on the sofa by the window waiting for you to return. Even, if you are out for 10-15 minutes, she rushes to the door to greet you.

She is always happy, bounds everywhere, chases her ball almost to exhaustion, and loves lying next to for yet more attention.

She loves to play and she is never rough, always gentle and dog’s have amazing emotional intelligence, they really can sense your moods.

She never gets tired of attention and being talked to and when you are not feeling at your best she knows too.

Dogs are always happy, as I type this I can hear her bounding down the stairs with excitement about something, so perhaps we could learn from them and choose to be more dog.
