Ending the year on a Pawsitive step

Every year comes to an end, everyone starts preparing for the new year, new traditions, new habits, new goals, new resolutions and yet the “new year” is just tomorrow. I like to think of the new year as a continuation to my forever growing and changing life. It’s more time and more opportunity to grow and change and do the things I’ve always wanted to do and complete small goals or start bigger ones. It may be the end of our calendar months and we will be writing down a new number year, but it’s just tomorrow. It’s like how dogs look at the new year 😉 but yet even for a dog, so much can change in 1 year. Even for us humans, and it’s amazing to see what we can accomplish or go through in just 1 year and continue to go through and grow from what we’ve learned. I’ve had a lot of recent inspiration for handling life and most are from working with dogs. Watching how they live each and everyday is so interesting to me that I can’t help but want to live the way they do. This past year I’ve dealt with more than I ever expected and being around dogs and observing and learning from them has been so rewarding with what reality brings. Not only are they therapy but they teach therapy. Throughout the sickness in my family I’ve learned more and more to live in the moment, take baby steps when things get overwhelming, don’t rush things and take them day by day, how to communicate more than just words and most importantly to me, patience. I’ve learned this all from dogs, I’m around them everyday, I was open minded to learning new things and it’s new things I will forever learn being a part of the dog world. I’ve always truly been thankful to understand the dog world and be a part of it, and now it’s time to continue my love and passion in the the dog world another year and become a stronger and better version of myself each day as the dogs do! I like to think I’m starting the new year off with a pawsitive step! Happy 2019 from Human and Moon Dogs at Moon Dog Lodge 🙂
