We’ve all experienced a day, or days, when things just didn’t go as expected. You know what I’m talking about…car getting a flat tire, being chewed out at work, vicious fight with our significant other, being sick to our stomach and so on and so forth.
It’s like we felt like the world was against us and we were the butt of a million jokes all lined up waiting to slap us in the face one after another. We just wanted to crawl into a hole and wake up the next day as a new person who was draped with every good luck charm the world had to offer.
It’s hard to recover from something like this. Yes it takes time and for some of us a good stiff drink. For the fortunate few that owns a pet, getting through something like this helps accelerate the process much, much faster.
After life has beaten you to a pulp and your spirits are gone, you trudge your weary feet through the door and are greeted by your beloved pet.
They make a mad dash for you at the speed of light and greet you like there’s no tomorrow. Having that “warm” reception, after the day you’ve been through, helps to ease the pain and kick start the endorphin in your body into overdrive.
They remind you that no matter what transpired “out there”, I’ll make you forget all that ever happened. Our pets, whether it be a dog, cat, bird, hamster, pig, horse, etc., show us unconditionally what love is all about.
Just the sight of their perked up face, wagging tail and herky-jerky body movements is enough to put a smile on anyone. Dare I say even the most hardened of faces.
Having that unabashed feeling from this animal is a truly most extraordinary phenomenon to behold. They make us laugh in our darkest of days by just being themselves. Their power to elicit all that’s happy, funny and joyful in us is just simply AMAZING.
Being able to hold our pets and confide in them REALLY, REALLY makes our life all that more precious. We forget all that “terrible stuff” and soon take delight in the positive.
We no longer feel that doom and gloom and are hopeful for an exceptionally grand tomorrow. We soon think to ourselves that “Life’s not all that bad” and our luck’s about to change for the better. All this was because of our pet…all their positivity seeped into our core beings. It became the perfect antidote to our dilemma.
Our family member, our pet, that looked past all our faults and unexpected misfortunes and gave us inspiration and hope that life is best experienced together.
So if you have a hell of a day, don’t despair…just take two aspirins and “HUG“ your pet!
