Life is beautiful, extraordinary, and filled with opportunities. We all know that right? But sometimes, just sometimes, life can provide barriers (obstacles if you will) that serve to compete with the path of happiness we all so wish to skip along. It can throw up irritating little hurdles that you just have to hop over and carry on as you dance along your merry way. At least that’s the slant on life I try my best to uphold. It’s not easy, and sometimes it can be a downright battle when you feel like you are constantly trying to push, heave and kick obstacles out of your way like a relentless Ninja. But even a Ninja has down days right?!
Anyway, today was one of those days for me. But do you know what really cheered me up when I was feeling a bit fed up? This picture of my Dog Harvey (left) and his friend Harvey (right). Whilst on the surface this is a silly picture of two bemused dogs with towels on their heads, if you dig a little deeper it is more. I think we can learn so much from dogs. Their innocence and playful approach to life, their endless wonder and excitement, and their ability to be SO EASILY PLEASED. Sometimes I think we are all guilty of taking life a little too seriously, but it is worth remembering when you are feeling low, that somewhere out there in the world is a dog looking very pleased with himself…wearing a towel on his head with pride.
