Working from home, Maggie quickly became my Vice President of Canine Affairs, and gave me that certainty of being able to take part in a quick belly rub, a game of fetch or tug of war, or just a sympathetic ear when I needed to vent. When I’d inevitably read one of those articles online about a dog who recovered after being abused by someone, or how the loss of a dog affected its owner (if you’re reading this, I’m assuming you can relate), I’d stop what I was doing, go find her usually asleep on the couch, and give her a snuggle. She’d wake up, wonder what I was on about, and then allow it. We had a rhythm and it worked.
Artists, writers, creatives: This week, when you see extended family, don’t self sabotage. Don’t tell them your secret dream if you know you’ll leave feeling bad. Your stretching scares them. Because it represents change. And time. So protect yourself. And your dreams/plans/ideas
