FRIDAY – THANK GOODNESS!

I don’t know about you all, but this week has been SO LONG and trying. I have had a week from hell, well the past few weeks – wait the past year at work has been pretty much hell.

On that note, I’d like to point out another character in my life besides my four legged children. My husband is the most patient, kind, understanding person in the world – he deals with me on a daily basis. He deals with my bitching, my crying, my somewhat bi-polar like emotions. I have never NOT been stressed. My entire life. We have had a lot going on in our lives the past year or so and it is catching up with me. I have been in a weird place with my career ever since I accepted my current position. Travis, my husband, supports me in whatever my goal of the week, day, hour becomes. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G man. I have no idea how I got so lucky but he picked me to spend the rest of his life with and I sometimes feel like he wants to hang himself when I’m on a rant about work or whatever I’m bitching about that second. Together, we have decided that I expect too much out of everything, everyone, and every situation and that I need to be content with less. Not everyone is as “perfect” as me. HAHA. RI-GHT. But seriously, I do expect people to take ownership of crap and I am usually sadly let down. I need to join the masses and start not giving a crap. NO, that is not the solution…. BUT learning to not let small things bother me and affect mine and my husbands sanity would be a good start.

Anywho, I know this seems like a random post for a blog titled WagToday, but it really isn’t that off the wall. My point is that I have an amazing husband who loves me unconditionally aside from how successful I am in my career or how much money I’m bringing in. That shouldn’t be enough, it IS enough. I am going to wag my tail today because life is good. My crappy career situation is only one aspect of my life…not what makes my life wonderful.<3 you Travis

WAG-TODAY

 

Find your “Stick” in life

Isn’t it funny how dogs are perfectly happy with a dirty old stick? I find it absolutely refreshing. Why can’t we be that satisfied with basically nothing? One of my goals for my life is to become content with a less. I don’t know about you, but my life has become increasingly more chaotic as the years have passed and I am only 25. I can not imagine raising actual human kids in this chaotic lifestyle we have surrounded ourselves with. Aside from being less complicated… we all need to find those simple things in life that make us run around the yard like a puppy with a stick.

If you could wipe away all of your responsibilities for a week, get rid of all worry over bills, not have any unexpected interruptions, and had no limit on what you could do… what would you do? Would you go sit and read on the beach? Would you take long walks with your family? Would you go fishing? Would you paint? Whatever it is… you should know what those things are in life that make you happiest. Sometimes the simple little things that enhance our lives get overlooked and downplayed. Without them, would you be the same?

I know I would not be the same without my love of art. When I am feeling overwhelmed and need to bring myself down to reality, I pick up a paint brush. It makes me so happy to be completely free… Sorta like Charlie and Mina when they find a new stick. It is the best thing in  the world to them!

When you’ve found that special thing in life… don’t let go!

Happy Wednesday!

I spent 40 minutes during lunch today playing with the pups outside. It is almost 70 degrees in November! I love it. I am wagging my tail today.
