If you are anything like me, when things aren’t going the way I had hoped or planned, I don’t always want to deal with it right away. Sometimes I want to sit back and assess the situation, consider my Plan Bs, or even Plans C or D! Unless it is critical, it is ok to sit back, take a minute, take a day, to get a game plan together before you move forward. Just don’t procrastinate too much and let things escalate too much. Don’t run or ignore the problems because, as I have learned, they DO NOT go away!
It is, however, ok to take a breath, reasses, and “take a nap!”

Everyone views beauty differently. For some, sunsets, for others sunrises. It is easier to say someone or something is beautiful than to say YOU are beautiful, or we want to clarify it. Beautiful soul, beautiful personality, etc.
How can you ask others to find you beautiful if you don’t find yourself beautiful. Look in a mirror and tell the face looking back at you how beautiful you think he / she is!
In today’s society, where acceptance doesn’t always come easy. Bully’s hiding behind keyboards, will attack anyone or anything not comfortable to them, make it difficult to always see the GREAT in ourselves. Stop! Be happy with who YOU are. Understand you are unique. It’s OK if you are different from the average. Once you accept who you are, others will as well. Laugh at your differences. Love your uniqueness.
If you meet others who are different than you, embrace them. My general rule of thumb is; as long as they don’t bring harm to children, animals, or other people, I can accept them.
Acceptance isn’t the same as liking the person. You don’t have to like someone to accept them. You don’t have to be everyone’s friend. You should, however, accept yourself and like yourself! Try it. You’ll be surprised how much easier it is for others to accept and like you as well!
All too often, it’s easy to stay in bad relationships. Who knows why we stay in them. Convenience. Fear of being alone. The question is, would you really want a loved one to have a relationship like you have? If the answer is no, it might be time to look into getting out of it.
My dogs love cardboard. Zipper, my Jack Russell, will rip open any box he can sink his teeth into in order to see if there is anything in the box for him. I have ordered toys from the Horseloverz auction for them. When the box arrived, I put it off to the side and got busy with other things. I left the house, came home, only to find the box open and two of the dog toys destroyed already!
Bella, my Neapolitan Mastiff, doesn’t seem to care about the toys, instead, she has a love of cardboard boxes. She will snag any piece of cardboard she can and walk around with it like it’s the best toy she has ever been given.
I love my fur babies. It is never a dull moment with them around!
