No matter how much your eyes feel warm, and well up with tears. No matter how red and swollen they are, or how blotchy your face it. No matter how hard it is to open your eyes or rid the headache from crying? Don’t give anyone the chance to see you at your weakest point because you’re giving them the opportunity to destroy you.
But given the opportunity the people that truly care about you the most will wipe the tears from your beautiful eyes, pull you in close, hold you tight, and apologize regardless of wether they are the source of the tears or not…
SERIOUSLY BE NICE TO YOUR ANIMALS BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU MORE THAN YOU DESERVE AND MORE THAN ANY HUMAN EVER WILL
When I was a young I laughed at my baby sister when I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and she responded, “a dog”. At the time I teased her about it and continue to do so when on her birthdays to remind her how much I loved watching her grow up. It isn’t until I lie here with my puppies and watch them sleep that I realize just how profoundly intelligent her answer was even if she didn’t know it. My puppies have a simple life. They wake up tangled in my comforters every morning whenever they decide they want to get out of bed, they eat their breakfast, they play, they nap, they play some more, they nap some more, they eat dinner, they snuggle up with me each night, and the entire time they are around me they are just about the only thing I care about. They lie next to or in some cases on top or underneath me and know that they are the only important thing in my life at that moment. How amazing would life be if we could spend everyday knowing that the only person you truly love and care about wanted nothing more than to spend their entire lifetime loving and caring for you? How amazing would life be if we could spend every night knowing that the only person you truly love and care about wanted nothing more than to spend their entire lifetime holding you tight and sharing your dreams? How amazing would life be if the only decision you had to make was which side of the bed you wanted to sleep on and what you wanted to do to show your only true love how much you loved them? How amazing could life be if you knew how unconditional love really felt?
