Bright Side

" Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow." - Helen Keller

Of all the lessons I've learned so far in my life (some learned the easy way, but most the hard way) I think the most important of all is to look at the bright side of things.  Its just a fact of life that things aren't always going to go as planned and some days are just plain going to be screwed up beyond belief.  But if you don't figure out how to roll with it, you'll miss out on all the fun that sneaks up on you in between the messes.

So this blog is dedicated to my dog Auto who teaches me something new everyday and reminds me all the time in all different ways to look at the bright side of things, because if I didn't I would probably lose my mind :)

So here's to Auto and what he has taught me along the way:

There is more than one way to skin a cat...or in this case, get a toy out of a bin.  Sometimes you just have to think outside of the box (or rip the box apart starting from the side.)

Let loved ones in because it's always better to have a companion in the ride of life...even if they cramp your style sometimes or you don't always see eye to eye on things like who rides shotgun...
Never underestimate the importance of a good nights sleep (even if you have to steal someone's pillow to get it.)

Surround yourself with loved ones because when you do, everyday feels like a welcome home party...sometimes there is even confetti (or what looks suspiciously like pieces of the ball you bought yesterday).

So try your best to see the good in all situations because otherwise you'll just end up broke, miserable, tired and lonely.  Life is good and there is something to be happy about everyday, you just have to look for it and let yourself smile about it no matter what!

(And if that doesn't work, get yourself a dog and you'll learn really quick not to let things get you down when Life Happens to surprise you).  :)
