As I’m still working with my doggie, Jackie, trying to nurse her back to health, I’ve realized that there are many things I’m doing differently in the last two weeks that just “isn’t me” - and it’s all because of Love.
So take some time today and ask yourself what you do, or even what you would do, for love? What would you do that takes you beyond where you are this minute.
Here’s some examples from my life:
I’m cooking for Jackie twice a day (granted it’s just boiled lamb or hamburger but it requires extra time and effort). Anyone who knows me knows that that’s just amazing because I am NOT a cook.
I’m not staying late at work to “catch up” nor am I going to work early to “get ahead”. I’m spending as much time with her as possible.
I’m taking her for at least one walk a day and sometimes two. As soon as we get up at 4 a.m. we’re out the door. She has a doggy door so I don’t NEED to do that but it’s something she enjoys.
I’m essentially living at the grocery store (not really). I would go to the grocery store once a week or once every two weeks before - probably because I don’t cook..ha ha…but now I’m going almost every day to get something different (whe I was trying to find what she’d eat) or to stock up on what works. This takes alot of time too.
I’m having to say “no” to things that I know would be bad for her - her biscuits for example. That’s hard.
I’m taking time off work to take her to the Vet. I don’t even care if it’s in the middle of the day.
You see, my priorities have changed even though she should have been my first priority all along. And as such, my activities have changed.
What do you do for love? Answer that question and examine what love is all about. I’m finding out more and more each day. I hope this helps you find out too.
