Good morning, everyone. I’ve been up since 5 in the morning. I have to admit that I love the silence of the morning when many dwellers are still asleep. One of the first things I do is take out my two chihuahuas out to pee and poopy (I know, excellent choice of words). Every morning is like a new day for the chihuahuas; they’re both girls. I wake up to wagging little tails and two pairs of eyes hoping I wake up soon.
Sometimes I wake before them. One of the dogs is older; her name is Lita. She’s about 10 years old. The younger one is 4 years old, and her name is Tai. She’s incredibly excited every morning. Lita wags her tail in a lazy-like manner. Throughout my life, I’ve had plenty of pets. One thing in common that I noticed from my pets is their bright eyes when they first see you in the morning, even cats. Cats are more like, “OMG. Okay, feed me. Bye.” Dogs worship you like a god.
I think to myself, “I wish I was more like them.” Not the worshipping part. But I like how they wake up bright-eyed and excited. Of course, their little animal minds don’t have the worries and stress that we do. I still love how they see every dawn as a miracle.
Since I cannot wake up in such an awesome state every day, I dedicate time to a couple of things that I enjoy to stay positive. One, I’m still writing my book. Yes, it’s taking quite a long time. But I am progressing a bit every day. I’m actually pretty far in my book. That’s of course without the editing, which will be a tedious process.
I also dedicate time to read the Bible and prayer. Of course, I have to exercise to destress. I try to exercise about an hour 5 times a week. However, the one hobby that relaxes me the most is playing the acoustic guitar. I try to get at least 15 minutes, but 30 minutes is my goal a few times a week. I try to dedicate the same amount of time to my writing.
By the way, I am a terrible musician. It’s taking endless weeks to learn one song. It’s so
frustrating. I studied the acoustic guitar for two or three semesters many years ago. I’m quite rusty. The song I am self-teaching myself is, “Lost Stars,” Kiera Knightly’s version. I will write more on my experience of self-teaching this song in a different post. For now, I just wanted to take time to blog about a random topic. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you.
Do you have any pets? If so, what do you love about them? What activities do you engage to enjoy and or relax?
