Wind, Life, & Love

Random thoughts on the blog today.

The wind here is crazay, and sounds like it is in a lot of the country! My brother-in-law in FL is getting some wind as well. I dropped off the husband this am at the airport. He shall be landing in gorgeous FL in an hour! Little brother is graduating! Wish I could have gone, but 3 days off work was out of the question with trips already schedule in April :(. 

Well just a little thought for life & love today that I have been thinking about a lot lately. How many times do we come to Monday and can't wait for the weekend, or wish 2 weeks would hurry so you can go on that trip, or that date, or class....anything! So many times we wish away our weeks waiting for the next big day. When in reality we need to concentrate on today and make the most of it!( I could get cliche and say because tomorrow isn't always promised) 

We need to take advantage of that Monday through Thursday! Those are days to maybe better ourselves, maybe let life slow down and enjoy cooking dinner with that significant other, or watch your favorite tv show together. We need to quit wishing away to the weekend and living for the weekends, why yes they are nice, but we need to take advantage of all of our days! :) 

I love my husband. He is my best friend and we are a social couple and are busy a lot on the weekends. I, myself, need to slow down and enjoy time with just us during the weeks more, and not always be on the go on the weekends! Sometimes you have to say no, and it isn't a bad thing. And honestly I see the rewards being that much sweeter!!  

I am an animal lover. And we can learn so much from our animals! I think we should all try to strive to look at life like them, we would be a big group of licking, wagging, happy people and take advantage of every day and not waiting for the weekend! 

Live Simply.

Love generously.

Care Deeply.

Speak Kindly.

If a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

When loved ones come home, always run and greet them.

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

Take Naps!

Stretch before rising.

Run, romp, and play daily.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

When you're happy dance around and wag your entire body!

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Be Loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close, and nuzzle them gently!

So enjoy today, my friends! We need to take advantage of each day! No need to waste a day when you can be AWESOME
