Have you seen a dog excited for walk time? I recently saw one running in circles in the back of the car on its way to somewhere clearly very exciting.
Can you imagine having that kind of excitement about anything?
I think we learn to quash emotions as we age. At least I did. But what if we took a lesson from our dog? (Or your neighbors dog)? What if we let ourselves get that excited? And the same for other emotions- love, sadness? What if we didn’t run away?
