Great advice and I love "When chaos descends, don’t let it take you over."


I can't explain it but I've had a few moments like that. I'm not exactly sure if it's our dog or it's just when we spend time with them we divert our attention to them because we love them so much. And in doing so we clear our heads, reboot so to speak, which helps us get a clearer perspective of things afterwards.

Thank you Kimberly and Sandy for the great comments! I am glad this was helpful!

Sandy Lender

Margot, I have multiple deadlines each month with the publications I work on and the scenario you described here is the perfect way to settle down and refocus. I have companion parrots who appreciate the visit and neck scritches and little treats when I take that "brain break" to clear the chaos and refocus. It's amazing what a feathered friend's request for MORE SCRITCHES does for clearing the mind.

Kimberly Gauthier

This is beautiful. I can think of so many times when our dogs have been a welcome distraction to help me gain some perspective.
