My friend Laura posted something on Facebook today that gave me a good laugh. Although I don’t take residence with a dog now, I sure used to be a dog owner, and so I relate to her post.
Dog owners or not, I think we can all relate. Because we have all at some point taken our loved ones outside at 4am, required them to watch us stress about a bit while we circled around, sniffed the perimeter of Wasted Time, crossed the borders of End This Already, all while they’ve loyally stood by us and waited, patiently, until we were done. Then they’d let us back inside, watch us drop a deuce behind the recliner in the corner, and followed us back to our stale beds, our tails tucked between our legs, and, for the sake of love, we’d both clean up, and go back to sleep.
“The best use of life is love. The best expression of love is time.
The best time to love is now.”
After the bullshit election, Laura focused on the things we do have control over, and so she gave her readers a challenge: to do one loving thing that day that will contribute to world awesomeness. So, I did. I wrote it down and then I messaged her on Facebook and pretty much begged her to delete my comment so I’d get out of it but alas, Laura is Laura and so she held me accountable. So, I did it. I did the stupid loving thing I said I’d do, and it was more than I thought it would be, which is how love works.
What absolute shitty thing do you feel like you should probably do to show some love this weekend?
