Lighten Up

“Oh the wild joys of living! The leaping from rock to rock … the cool silver shock of the plunge in a pool’s living waters.” – Robert Browning

“Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” – Epicurus

“Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” – Epicurus

Ever since she was a puppy, Lily takes hold of Molly’s collar three houses from home on our daily outings. She starts up and invites participation in frolic. Stare in her eyes long enough and send the signal, “let’s mix it up” and she’s starts dancing in circles, grinning ear to ear. Everyday, she lovingly pulls Molly and I out of serious into delight, into the moment.

The accumulation of the past or consternation about the future steals the present. We take life way too seriously. Turn off the television, turn up the music and dance. Laugh, skip, leap, take the plunge in the pool of abundance. Lighten up. The world is longing for it, and it does a world of good in return.

  1. If the world were run by children and our pets, we would certainly be living more in the present. They each have a way of looking at the world through lenses that adults seem not to comprehend. Thank you for sharing, awesome message to begin the morning 😉

    • Thank you. Most of the good lessons come from those seizing the moment filled with joy and ease.
