Sunday Musings #15

Begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life.

– Seneca

 

Each Sunday I go through my sugar packet sayings and pick the one that speaks to me that day. Today’s saying was as if one of my many rescued dogs was offering me advice. After all, this is how a dog lives its life. No matter how harsh their life has been before they come to me, they adjust. In no time, they belong. They do not constantly dwell on the past. We can learn a great deal from this simple philosophy.

As Scarlett says in one of my favourite movies, Gone With the Wind, “Tomorrow is another day!”

      It takes some longer than others. Hard not knowing exactly what they have been through, but I find consistency and routine really help them settle down – and watching the resident dog to see what they should do 🙂

        Actually you know, I act like Alpha Mum, and then they feel secure. I only give all the cuddles when they are calm! -It is a dog thing! Humans you can hug when they are anxious – dogs you can’t!
        I had to learn a great deal about dogs and dog language and behaviour – and Still learning. But it is fun 🙂

      haha Glad I am not the only one who misreads 🙂
      Thanks for the link, but feel I ought to point out that I have not squirreled these sugar packets away from a restaurant, they come from my mum-in-law who has paid for them at her old age home. In fact, I actually keep some in my handbag and use when out at a restaurant as they often only bring you two with a pot of tea, which gives 3 cups! Now I wonder how that fits in to the psychology of the article 🙂

        Do the packets all have little sayings on them? I have quit using sugar or at least from the sugar bowl. But everything seems to list sugar as the first ingredient. 🙂

        Yes, these ones do. They are flat rectangular ones. The thin tube-like ones don’t have sayings.
        I only have sugar in tea, which I only drink when out, because the coffee is always too strong! 🙂
        You are right – there is sugar in Everything these days!
