So I don't know if it's Mercury in retrograde or the eclipse that is coming up next week, but the past week has been so emotional. A lot of just crazy things popping up that make you sit back with a huge ass glass of wine and think, seriously wtf is going on right now. And I try not to stress about it too much because in the grand scheme of things, I believe that whatever is supposed to happen is going to happen and I just need to learn how to roll with it, learn from it, and move forward.
So often I forget to live in the moment...but I'm not too much of a dweller so I don't really live in the past. I'm more of a "big picture" girl so it's like I'm trying to think 5 steps ahead yet deal with things that are happening right now which is probably why some days I just can't deal. But one of the best things in my life to help to just stop, take a deep breath, and just live for right now is Henri. He lives every second just being in the moment...partly because he's a dog and that's what they do, but also because he's just the coolest thing ever. Whenever I'm totally over something, or stressing about something that I can't control, or just thinking why is this happening right now, all I have to do is look at H, who really is my spirit animal, and it's like an instant calm and I know that everything will be ok...eventually...but in those little moments I can't help but smile and just be completely thankful that the universe brought him to me. I love you little buddha bear!
