Acceptance of What Is

Miss Bella

Animals have a way of accepting things for what they are…no questions, no reconsidering, no wondering if things could be different.  This morning when it was time to take our Bella for her mid-morning walk, she was asleep in her bed in my office.  I have been worried the last week that she’s been feeling neglected…my mind and heart have been very preoccupied and although Bella’s routine hasn’t changed, my attentions have not been completely focused during the times I am with her.  I’ve wondered if she’s felt less than adored, something I would never wish to happen.

As we got ready for the walk and I put her collar and lead on, I asked her if she was okay and apologized for my preoccupation…letting her know how much I love her and how important she is to us.  Her response was “I know.  It’s okay.  Let’s go for a walk!”

How simple life can be when we live it through the acceptance of what is.

    This is such a wonderful example – the other day I was looking at all the birds busy building their nests and found myself worrying about the weather making life difficult on them. But look at those guys, they just take what is and do their thing, no watching “storm watch” or becoming preoccupied with what might happen. Such a awesome lesson.

    Hi Kim. It’s always so fascinating (and humbling!) to me how animals are capable of such simple things which go nu-noticed and yet which make life so understandable!
