Life gets crazy. Life appears harder some days than others. I don't always keep tabs on my thoughts...and find myself drifting into negative thinking more and more. It is a downward spiral I hate-but can't seem to shake it. I know why--and I will eventually get ahead of those negative thoughts...but for now, I need a distraction.
With this in mind, I decided to do a month of things I am thankful for in my life.
1. I am thankful for my dachshund, Chloe. She is always happy to see me. She loves me unconditionally. I can walk out of the room and come back and her tail wags like it would for a homecoming of a long lost family member. When I have a stressful day, or feel sick, or just need a lift in spirits. She is there wagging her tail or snuggled up against me contentedly. I can do no wrong in her eyes (or if I do-a treat, a throw of a ball or Squeak make everything right in an instant.)
She is instant happiness. A smile maker.
