I swore after king that i'd never fall in love the same way with another dog again. but now that i think about it why would i keep myself from loving another dog again? they bring so much love, joy and affection into your home and most importantly your life. humans don't deserve dogs.
so happy a.j. brought spanky (i never thought i'd love a chihuahua as much😆) into my life. he's spoiled rotten but hey, that's okay! hence the little red speck above his nose. yeah, that's from pasta sauce that we let him lick from the bowl 👅 🐶
#lunchthoughts all of my adult life, i've been doing whatever i like after a childhood full of control. i wanted to go to grad school, then i did go. i wanted to live alone, then i did go. i wanted to try x as work, then i did go. i wanted to go to a place, then i did go. i wanted to fix my relationship i had with my family, then i did go.
it's not always like, free of challenges--plenty even. i had/have rough time trying to do what i want, i forgo a lot of things that if i remember now--alot of things i did and sacrificed were objectionably s****d but i am a fundamentally egoistic and selfish person. when i want it, i will pursue it until i have enough. i am still going! please wish me luck✨
As i prepare to begin to share yoga principals (the yamas and niyamas) with my students, satya (truthfulness) is heavy on my mind.
truthfulness and honestly are so much more than simply not telling lies.
the word ‘say’ literally translates as “true essence” or “true nature” which means that which has no distortion... something that is pure and unchanged.
so much of our time is spent not actually seeing truth or reality in our life situations.
our thoughts, emotions and moods are extremely interchangeable, yet these are the things that create our own truth and our whole life experience. if “sat” means “unchangeable”, then this can make us aware that much of our experience of life is brought about by paying more attention to that which changes, rather than the unchanging truth.
how much would your life experiences be enhanced if you could shift your focus from what is fleeting and changing, toward what is pure, unchanging truth?
What did you have for lunch this afternoon? i doubt you had it alone, isn't it?
think about it, most of us work in companies that employ people from diverse cultures, nationalities, and backgrounds. in reality, how well do you really know them? don't you find that having meals together creates a strong bond and increases the cohesiveness between you and your colleagues?
like if you agree and do share with us your thoughts on this in the comment section. .

In nature, things that have to withstand intense pressures build hard exteriors. a basic evolutionary adaptation. survive it screams. but listen, nonconformity is the highest evolutionary attainment of social animals. so when primal voices screech at you to grow cold and hard against the world, remain tender. remain the fragile flower, weather the storms, reach for the sun, show them your strength and determination. because you are no longer a species merely trying survive, you are the persistent bloom that thrives. 🌱🌸🌼🌻🌺🌹🌷🌱 #lunchthoughts#butalso#forevermood#flowers#fragility#sensitivity#softness
