Recently, I was feeling a bit blue that I am getting so old until Nancy read to me an inspirational message. The title of it was “The Beautiful Magic of Just Showing Up” written by Robin Dance. I did not even realize that was “a thing” in the human existence simply to just show up? Because, in my dog life, I am always here! Yup, I am always here and I show up because I live here. I show up because where would I go to get away anyway? (Not that I would want to change the convenient arrangement that I have at his home!)
Oh wait, I suppose it also means that I also “show up” mentally and not just plop on the couch and sleep. Could this be? Sometimes, I don’t even know how to think like a dog anymore because my owners have domesticated me so much. My main mission is to love my humans, is it not? Hey, maybe that was written by a dog……to just show up. There I go again, overthinking and that is never good.
I think another mission here on earth is to teach humans to not overthink. Now, I must get back into dog character and do my job. Actually, I am quite certain that my “Dog Manual for Living With Humans” warns us many times to just be there for them! This is such a relief to me because now, I know I don’t have to think of a Christmas gift for them! I will just do “The Beautiful Magic of Just Showing Up!” and continue to be there for them.
