The Five Steps to a Smiling Habit
Hi furriends! Before we get into our topic, I want to give a big shout out to my new furriends at Mattie + Margot, the very best in dogwear, for inviting me to share my paw-story with their audience. You can check my story out on their website (link shared below).
When I started this blog, it was meant to inspire and support dogs and their hoomans going through similar struggles as the ones Mom and I had. But I wasn’t sure if anyone would even read it. This is why I was super excited to learn that others like what I share and want to learn more about my journey.
Today, as I was starting my morning doga routine feeling blessed for the great experiences Mom and I are living together, I realized that our good life started with creating good habits.
Hoomans, just like dogs, are all about habits and routines. Without my routine, I feel confused and become anxious. The same happens to hoomans. Although hoomans are very skilled at faking their emotions and pretending that everything is cool, the truth is that breaking routines also make hoomans feel confused and anxious.
What I find tricky about life is that in order to grow and become better versions of ourselves, we need to constantly evolve, sometimes creating extreme life changing moments which break all of our old habits.
Knowing that changing habits creates discomfort, but understanding that this discomfort is necessary to evolve, how do you avoid the feeling of confusion and anxiety in the process?
Well, luckily Mom learned the formula a while ago, otherwise we’d have been in a loony bin by now! :-)
