Of the many admirable qualities in a dog, their ability to truly live in the moment might be the one I’m most envious of.
This morning I was giving this girl a belly rub and I just marveled at her focused appreciation. She gratefully reacted to every scratch and snuggle, never once looking up to me to question when the session would end.
That’s the hardest thing about being human. We’re always so worried about when something is going to end that we don’t always allow ourselves to fully experience joy as it’s happening.
I’m going to be more like my dog.
I’m going to enjoy the belly rub.
