Dog hugs. Some things are so pure.
Some things are so impure. Dogs don’t scam, take advantage, lie, blink their wide eyes at you while lying, putting on over theatrical performances with wild tales and then claiming to be a victim because you question the over obvious trick and wool being pulled over your eyes. Some people exist with integrity and believe in hard work and getting ahead by their own merits, some are parasites that exist off exploiting others and manipulation. I think all humans run into both types. It saddens me every time I realize that it takes all sorts to make up this world. And when I rub elbows with bad people without seeing them for what they are: I have to forgive myself for blinding my own eyes.... didn’t Albert Einstein once say: “the more I become familiar with the nature of men, the more I love my dog.”(?) I find myself having a hard time staying soft and open in such a hard, closed environment. But we walk this Earth to be a blessing to others.... and we live in this world but we don’t have to play the game of life by the snakes rules. We can choose very very differently- turn on your heel, put your head up, and walk the other route. And it’s ok to acknowledge “yeah I was lost and distracted by your game you got going. I allowed this in my world for a time. I allowed myself to think the best in someone who was out for doing bad things. I got tangled in a web. But thank you for my lesson, as it really gave me wisdom.” Now I can see many bad people from a mile away, and I wouldn’t be able to if it hadn’t been from experiences. So I guess, thank you God for teaching me.... even if I was a knucklehead for so long! Nothing shameful in taking a leap of faith, and then taking your lumps like a big girl, gathering the positive from it, and using it for good, forgiving, releasing the yuck from your spirit- lighten your load from your soul.... and moving forward with beauty and grace. #deepthoughts #goodnight #dontgetbittergetbetter #notallpeoplesrebadpeople #believe #movingon #focusedonstrengthgrowthanddevelopment #iwontgiveup #imnotlikeyou #gettingplayed #donthatemeditate #turnfrownsupsidedown #dontstayinthepast #faith #liveandlearn
