May 6 – Learn from the best


Even though Churchill is definitely not an example of a role model, his words below deserve to be shared:

“If you can start the day without caffeine;

If you can get going without pep pills;

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles;

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it;

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time;

If you can forgive a friend’s lack of consideration;

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when, through no fault of your own, something goes wrong;

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;

If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him;

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend;

If you can face the world without lies and deceit;

If you can conquer tension without medical help;

If you can relax without liquor; If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;

If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed or color, religion or politics; then, my friend, you are almost as good as your dog.”

It’s never to late to learn- and the teachers are all around us. Scientifically we are the most advanced species, but indeed – there is so much to learn from our pets and the power of their inspiring unconditional love.
