There’s got to be a good reason why so many people say they’d like to be reincarnated as a dog.
Is it because they have an unfulfilled urge to roll around in mud? Could it be that some folks yearn for something more basic like the love a good stick or bone, instead of the chaotic daily dash? Maybe chasing a ball across a lush green park appeals their restless energetic nature? Perhaps the prospect of never having to cook their own dinner is enough to pray for a canine rebirth?
Or, dear blog reader, could it be that dogs simply know how to deal with life?
Every now and then it’s good to hit the pause button on life and take a look around. Think of it as calling a cease-fire so you can raise your head above the ramparts and check how things are going. Are you winning? Losing? Maintaining the status quo? For the “glass is half empty” folks out there, perhaps you’re feeling life is a case of one step forward two steps back? And for those eternal optimists maybe you’re in a “three steps forward so the rest better catch up” scenario.
If you’re winning – good on yer! Just remember to take a breather and cheer on the rest of the team.
If you’re losing – meh, don’t worry about it, you win some, you lose some.
If you’re standing still – well, that’s no bad thing either, time to reflect on life’s mysteries and plan what’s happening next. I suggest cake.
Imagine you’re living in a world without people.
The how and why aren’t important. Choose your apocalypse if it helps fuel your imagination – zombies, deadly virus, alien mass abduction, Biblical event, dimensional rift in space/time – whatever floats your boat.
You’re alone in a silent city.
All those background noises you’ve taken for granted are gone. No more rattle and hum of engines chugging along the streets, no music, chatter of voices or mobile phones. And don’t forget the absence of other sensory input like traffic fumes or endless guffs of fast food fighting for your attention.
There’s just you and the silence.
