Cats and Dogs

Cats and DogsRegardless of where you fall on the cat/dog scale, they both have at least one thing in common. They receive love well.

Start scratching a dog and he rolls over to really let you make him feel good. He will let you scratch all day if you like. Gently rub a cat behind the ears and she begins to purr. Animals, by in large, know how to receive the good life.

We want the good life. We strive for the good life. BUT We wrestle with stress and anxiety on a daily basis.

There are 2 basic parts to getting the life you desire.

  1. Learning how to ask for exactly what you want. (We are trained to not do this)
  2. Learning to receive when the life we want comes to us.

Now it may seem like if the good life dropped on our door step, that we would welcome it in. However, the truth of the matter is that we often deflect it away. Opportunities present themselves and we see them as threats. Others desire to work with us and we compete. We pre-judge the future and assume ideas about those around us. Maybe we can learn from our pets and practice receiving. Maybe, the good life will come to you if, like my dog sunny, you approach every new moment with the expectation of the good that is coming your way.

Something to think about.
