Woof . . . remember the good 'ole days (just weeks ago)???
You humans seem to be totally disoriented these days (aka daze). Made me think about when I was just starting to walk. I was a wobbly mess. Never thought I'd get it right. Took me awhile to find my balance. Now? My balancing act is legendary -- just ask Kat!
OK, I get it . . . your whole world has been turned upside down, overnight! While it's been a boon for me with all the added attention during the daytime, I can see and feel the impact it's having on you humanoids. I'm doing my best to bring you comfort and I hope my fellow comfort dogs are kickin it into high gear as well.
As the Chief Morale Officer, here's some tips that we at KSHIFT would like to share:
Recognize that you're not alone. That's a biggie. Make sure you stay connected and create new connections. You won't be sorry.
Accept that old priorities are GONE! Get with your pack (virtually of course) and have fun pondering new possibilities -- cherish the unexpected opportunity you have to create something NEW, something that will actually be BETTER and even more meaningful.
Take action, even if it's messy and you're feeling a little wobbly. Feeling overwhelmed? Give yourself permission to slow down, take baby steps and celebrate each one of them. After all, who doesn't love a good celebration! A series of virtual "Happy Hours" sound good to me. Just don't forget the treats for any 4-footed best friend(s) in the house!
When (not if) you fall down, exercise lots of grace and have a good chuckle. As Kat would say, "Done is better than perfect."
Try on one of our core values . . . Perfect Imperfection. It's permission for you to go for it and enjoy the journey.
Years from now, everyone will be remembering this global pandemic. I want to be remembered for being the most amazing, untrained comfort dog extraordinaire. How about YOU?
