No matter how you’re spending your holidays this year, one thing’s for sure: LOVE is everywhere — and it’s growing!
Yes, 2020 has been a difficult year to say the least. But, in the midst of all of its trials, many of us have had the realization that NOW is the time to really start living the life of our dreams (or even in our wildest imaginations). By slowing down and turning inward, we’ve been able to use this year as an opportunity to sit still (not much choice!) and reevaluate our priorities. And, in doing so, we’ve been able to refocus our attention on what really makes our hearts soar…
Love comes in so many forms and it’s at the core of everything that brings us true happiness in life. From our family to our four-legged friends, the way we love others is so often the way we are loved ourselves. So, if our personal interactions lack for depth or passion, perhaps we need to evaluate the dynamics in our past (family, friends, environment…) and be mindful to treat others as we would like to be (the Golden Rule is alive and well!).
And the more we love, the more Joyful we feel!
Even in the thick of difficulties, taking a moment to show kindness to others. is the fastest way to reclaim our joy — and help others reclaim that same spark, too.
As 2020 comes to a close, it’s amazing to look around and see just how much has changed in the world of Hachi. Not only has the number of Hachi friends around the world grown with abundance, but more and more people are feeling called to spread his message of loyalty and forever love.
Once you’re touched by Hachi, you’ll never be the same.
And the same is true for the love you feel — and have felt — from your own dog.
Dogs have the most amazing capacity for love. So much so that it’s easy to take it for granted from time to time. But when you really sit in that endless love your dog offers you, appreciating all of it, you quickly learn just how powerful simple expressions of love are. Just being present in the moment and really listening to a conversation (instead of thinking of work project) can make your partner feel respected and appreciated. The interaction feels so much more gratifying than spending a longer time not really “being” present.
When you are reminded by your dog of just how much you are loved, you can’t help but to feel JOYFUL!
So, as we enjoy the holidays and prepare for a new year, let us all remember the power of love — and the joy it’s capable of spreading if you, like our dogs, don’t hold anything back. Be authentic and in the moment. There’s a reason we FEEL so loved by our pups.
