As naughty as cats can be—like jumping on the counter when they know they shouldn’t be up there in the first place —there sure are a lot of life lessons to be learned from them as well.
Lesson #1: Take the time to look around you. Enjoy those simple, every day things that make you smile.
Lesson #2: Give your body the rest that it needs.
Lesson #3: Take time to be alone once in a while. Find a comfy spot and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Lesson #4: Embrace those things that make you stand out. Those things that make you unique. Those things that make you you!
Lesson #5: Stretch often.
Lesson #6: Eat plenty of fatty fish.
I cracked open a can of sardines for the kitties tonight and decided to do the same for me.
Keeping it simple with sauteed cabbage and mustard.
Sardines get such a bad rap for being stinky and slimy, but I seriously love them. If you’re on the fence about cracking open a can, try adding some texture to the meal. Sometimes I’ll dunk the little fish in whole wheat flour and toss them in a frying pan with a bit of butter, thereby creating a crispy coating. OR, you could simply toast a slice of whole wheat bread, slather on some really good, spicy mustard and call it a meal.
Question: What is it that makes you unique and different and how do you feel about it? I have a red scar that I used to always feel super self conscious about! I even had a doctor try to remove it when I was smaller. But now I love it because it makes me different, and I’m not afraid to show it off.
