Tonight I am having an evening at home alone.
While most in my shoes would welcome this occasion, I am really not too fond of the idea. I enjoyed my time of being single and childless, but I don't miss those days one bit. I look forward all week to spending Friday night with Mike, so I threw a bit of a pity-party when I realized I would be spending it with Hunter (that dog who got me a ticket) instead.
After I ate my can of worms (still don't understand that expression), I started to look to the positives of spending this night just me and my dog. I try to look for the best in every hangout situation I have, seeing what I can learn from the person I am with. What character traits do they have that I am lacking in? What would my life look like if I was more like them in (fill in the blank) area?
Call me crazy, but I think I just learned more from my dog than I ever expected.
If I could be more like Hunter:
I would love people even if they didn't love me back.
I would accept people for who they are, and not judge them for what they appear to be.
I would enjoy creation more.
I would be able to fall asleep in 20 seconds or less.
I would try something that scares me, even if everyone told me not to.
I would face my giants, even if they are rottweilers and I'm just a runt.
I would forgive people in 10 seconds.
I would like the taste of tap water.
I would fight for the safety of others, even if I had to die trying.
I would be happy to live anywhere, as long as my family is with me.
I would not be a picky eater.
I would run like there's no stopping me.
I would probably do something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMDlZHdKMqk
Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy your night no matter what situation you find yourself in. Don't do anything my dog wouldn't do!
