As I watch my two canine companions, I am struck by the way they behave. One thing that I’ve noted is that they don’t seem to have expectations, which are things that we humans seem to generate that don’t do us much good.
Dogs live in the moment; they enjoy what’s going on in real time without comparing it, or over thinking each moment. I’m taking my cue from them and working to do the same. Without expectations, I can more thoroughly enjoy whatever it is that I’m doing or receiving. They love us for who we are, not who we could be. In fact, it seems ridiculous to contemplate what that would look like. Life through their eyes is fresh and enjoyable. No wonder they are so compelling!
