A little self analysing
My little dog is nearing the end of her days. She will be 15 this coming June which is quite a good age. We have had her since she was a year old, As I spend more and more time worrying about what I will do without her another question is forcing itself forward in my head. Why do I waste what time she has left worrying about that, why can’t I simply throw myself into celebrating each day we have left?
How selfish. I am obviously more concerned with my feelings than hers. I would not have believed I could be like that but I suppose it’s the old “Self Preservation” coming to the fore.
The other selfish thing I dwell on is “will I have to make the decision for her”. “Maybe she will go in her sleep? “
I do know that if I can manage to adopt a more positive attitude towards this, recognise and remember that we all have a set lifetime span, probably laid out from the day we were born, and make the very best of what I have left with her I will be in a far better state of mind when her time finally comes.
The moral of the story is:-
Celebrate Life Whilst You Can.
