Sometimes I struggle with how crazy, hectic and difficult life can be. Admittedly, I create all these issues and the stress and anxiety that come along with them. Honestly, my life is good. Better than good actually, it’s great. Though some days I lose sight of the simple philosophies I want to live by.
As a reminder, I have Bubba.
This little guy has the life. I feel like I can always hear him saying “People Please!” as he marvels at how difficult we all can make it be.
Upon observation, I think he’s broken life down into these simple steps:
1. Live in the Moment.
Bubba has the ability to go with us anywhere and just “be” there. He lives for the now.
2. Eat Well.
Bubba, unlike some other dogs (and most humans), truly only eats when he’s hungry.
3. Give love freely and often.
Bubba truly loves everyone. He’s always ready to give a snuggle and more than happy to take one too.
4. Get lots of exercise to keep you strong.
Most of Bubba’s exercise is when he plays, but shouldn’t it be fun?
5. Be adventurous.
Bubba’s always keeps an open mind ready to travel new paths he hasn’t been on before.
6. Get plenty of rest.
It sounds so easy, but sometimes, at least for me, the easiest things prove to be most difficult.
Hopefully, this little reminder will help you in your day or at the very least bring you a little smile.
