Living In The Moment
Dogs are stress busters because they don't believe in living in the past or the future. All they know is the present moment and making the most of it. Can we humans learn to stop dwelling in the past and worrying about the future?
Forgive And Forget
Unlike us, dogs don't hold grudges. If you haven't noticed, your dog will not show resentment if you didn't give him a treat last night.
A dog loves you and he shows it; he doesn't stress about what your reaction would be. Perhaps we, too, should learn how to express our feelings to our loved ones. Isn't it amazing how they can be so much more expressive without being able to communicate with words!
Don't Be Judgemental
Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni once said that his dog doesn't judge him, irrespective of the fact whether he's won or lost a match. Be that way and love unconditionally!
No matter how long you've stayed with your dog, notice how it always looks at you gratefully every time you give it a treat. In the same way, you need to stop taking people for granted and be grateful fr whatever little they do.
So, the next time you're out playing fetch with your pooch, spare a thoughtful moment and learn what it is subconsciously teaching you :)
