Got your shine on?
My dog, Raggs, is a miniature schnauzer which means most of the world is bigger than him so he defends me and himself pretty quickly. I wanted Raggs to be social with at least some other canines. So, I set up a doggie playdate with one of my friends and her dog, Oliver. We planned to go to a dog park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. I was really nervous when Oliver and his mommy arrived. “What if Raggs didn’t get along with Oliver or any of the other dogs? What if he tried to defend me and got in a fight?”
Raggs once again proved me wrong as he shook with happiness as Oliver came into our home, showing Oliver his toys. The walk to the dog park was a happy one and Raggs made several puppy friends. He even became the “bouncer” of the dog park, breaking up fights. It was as though he had found his element. He was a really good dog that day.
Life has a way of showing you where you best belong. Today, listen to your life for opportunities where you can shine, even those outside of your comfort zone.
