Life lessons from Milly the dog

milly the dog life lessons

A while ago we were looking after our lovely neighbour's dog. Her name is Milly and she´s the greatest. Indulging in lots of play and fun in the park and on the beach. The thing about dogs is, like most animals, they have the ability to constantly remind us to be in the present moment. No moping or dwelling on worrisome thoughts, instead a more vivacious and gregarious attitude to the magic of life in each moment.

Actually, they are endless sources of wisdom. Here´s what Milly taught me:

1) Live in the moment. Always! ☝️✨

2) Seek joy, fun and play in everything! 🎉

3) Meeting others can lead to a beautiful (albeit bottom-sniffing) delight....or not. And that´s ok! 🐶🐩🐾

4) Attention is always given to the present moment and – SQUIRREL!!!💨

5) There's endless amounts of love to give! Unlimited supply!💕💕💕

6) And there´s ALWAYS a good time for a walk!🚶👍

7) If you´re a bit scared (of a big dog or a big problem), you can always seek help and curl up on someone´s lap.😰🔀😊🆗

8) Even though birds seem out of reach and impossible to catch, go after them anyway!🐦🏃

9) Never be afraid to explore new territories!🙌

10) Make your mark / scent on the world!💩(sorry)


Thank you  Milly, for your joy and wisdom! 🐾

Endless gratitude,

Love from me,
