Expect – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

By life I have learned not to expect anything, just to be grateful, when humans behave in a kind way.

Earlier I did expect many things, such as mutual respect among humans or that all treated animals in a respectful way. This I don’t expect any longer, but I feel joy, when I see it is still happening.

By not expecting anything, I can only be positive surprised, when I see good acting by other humans.

Unfortunately many don’t know, what they say yes to, when they get an animal in their house, no matter it is a pet or other kind of animal. All animal kids are very cute and it is very easy to fall in love with them and wish to bring them to our home. If we have thought this through before acting, the animals can give us more unconditional love than we can find other places.

If a dog is on the wishing list as a pet, then there is several things to think about first like:

Can you afford to have a dog with both food, veterinary visits, vaccinations, spot-on, collars, leash, bowls, toys, bones, bed, blankets etc.? It is not cheap to have a dog

Who will be the responsible for feeding the dog? If only one are doing this, there are much better control, when and how much the dog will get to eat

Who will be the responsible for walking the dog? It is not enough to go out in the garden, even it is nice to have a garden, when you have animals. Dogs need to challenge their senses and to play with other dogs to be dog-social

Who will be responsible for the dog- training? The dog needs to learn to walk nice in a leash. It is not fun to walk a dog, while you are flying behind, because no one took the time to learn the dog, which you can not blaim the dog, if you didn’t use the needed time. Right here I see and have seen very bad behavior from humans, who think it is okay to hit, beat or kick the dog, when it doesn’t respond to your talking. It is never okay to hit a dog, but it is necessary to raise the dog, so it knows, how to behave in a good way

What are going to do with your dog, while you go on vacations? If you can’t bring the dog, then you need to find a good solution for what else to do, your dog can not stay home alone in your vacation. Here I have seen more bad behavior from humans who kill their dog or just leave it somewhere and don’t think more about that. This is not a good solution and if you can’t find a solution before you get the animal, don’t get the animal at all

Remember that animals are not toys, they are not for giving in the Christmas, they need peace, when they come to a new home to find themselves and learn you to know. If you wish to give an animal as a gift, then find another way.

If it is a dog, give the collar, leash, food bowls, books about dogs, dog bed etc. instead and talk about collecting the animal after the Christmas time, when there are peace in the house

If it is a cat, then you can give food bowls, books about cats, cat bed, toys, scratching tree etc. there are no need to get the cat, while there are no peace in the house, this will just scare the cat from beginning.

Cats need excactly the same security as the dogs for having a good forever home and humans, who will take good care of them in there life time, so please think, before you get a new family member

How do you have animals in your house?

-Eat – This post is part of SoCS

The heat has been tough in the summer this year in Spain. We have had several heat waves many places here. Where I live, we have had temperatures up around 40 C. – 104 F. Few days more warm, while the heat waves were heavy here.

I haven’t had much energy for a while, why it is a little while ago, since I joined SoCS last time. When the abundance is not in top, I need to prioritize, where to use the energy.

I have used much time to practice training with Odin. He is now 2½ years old and more ready to learn like an almost adult. Dogs need to be 3 years old to be called adults. I practice behavior, how to walk nice – also when we meet other dogs etc. I’m grateful that Odin love to learn new and most of the times, he responds positive. He has also found some new friends, as he is allowed to play with sometimes, which makes me happy. He needs to learn to socialize with other dogs, it is not enough, that my cats have learned him how to behave together with them 😀   They did an exellent job there…..

A little information to my New Readers; Thank you for visiting my blog, I do really appreciate that. I do also visit your blog and most often I will like at least one of your posts, maybe comment and share at Twitter too, and if I like your blog very much, I might be a new follower, but not always. Sometimes I get to visit blogs, where the blogger are blogging a lot about their religion and here I don’t do so much. Please understand that I respect your view of religion and for you to know, I’m not religious. I’m spirituel and work in many alternative ways and should I go close to any religion, it would be the Tibetan Buddhism. Few times I do like and share posts with religious topics as part of the post, but only because I really like the people behind those blogs and see them as good friends and I like to support my friends.

The autumn is also on the way, where I live in Spain. It is more cold in the nights and I need more clothe for our walks now. Still we have much sun in midday, which is wonderful and give opportunity to enjoy the garden and terrace. My roses are still blooming and are very beautiful.

Have you also had heat waves, where you live this summer?

Temp – This post is part of SoCS


SoCS badge 2015

I have been temporary away from SoCS and other kind of writing for a while because I needed to recover my energy and abundance. I live close to the Mediterranean Sea in Spain and we have had a lot of tourists in our area in the Summer time here and not all tourists were acting considerately. Many make a lot of noise, which for me is very bad. I am noise sensitive and then get screaming neighbors did not help. Some were even screaming in the nights too. I feel very happy, that those people left again and it became possible to find the peace as usual is here.

The Autumn is close here too, even we still have warm in the air in daytime. The nights are cold now and we have had a lot of rain and storm for a while now. Some days also nice sun in the middle of the day. This change in the weather gave me a cold, which also drained me for energy.

It is soon time to look for another house again, because my contract for renting this house ends the 31. of December. Right now I don’t know, where next stop will be, but time will show. I have seen several parts of Spain in the 3 years, as I have lived here.

With the Autumn come the time for indoor activities, which for me means more time for creating my jewelry. I try to find inspiration in the nature for my next creations. I hope that you will like them. As you might know, I do sell my jewelry at both Etsy & DaWanda and have also made an offer for this weekend for my readers at WordPress. You can read more about this offer here

I hope to find the abundance to develope my other pages at my blog, which include Jewelry, Personal Development and Gemstones & their Energies. I haven’t been to good to update all the pages for long time.

I’m still working to clean out of my house, what I don’t use any longer. It is clothe and everything else, that just are filling up space. It is a big job and I’m not very good to come through it all. It takes so long time, as I could use for so much else 😉

Meditation & Yoga are very important for me to find my inner peace. I enjoy to walk with my dog Odin in the nature here. We walk both in the nature and by the sea, where I often do my meditation. It is so peaceful now, where there are not so many tourists any longer. It is also soon time, where Odin again will be allowed to swim in the sea. This is more difficult, while there are many tourists and not legal many places either.

Which plans do you have for your Autumn?

Gratitude


Cher wrote a post about Gratitude yesterday and asked us to tell about our gratitudes for the day, which I will answer her here:

I feel Gratitude for:

Being alive today – given one more day

To be able to take care of myself

To have a wonderful family – even we live far apart

To have my boyfriend

To see my two old cats feeling good

To see Odin become more mature day by day – he is now 2½ years, not adult yet

To have few good friends – with whom I have contact, when we have the abundance 

To be able to use my senses – so I can enjoy our beautiful nature

That my health not are going worse

That I can take photos to enjoy later – and maybe share in here

Enough for today

You should visit Cher, she has a great blog 😀
