Inspirational and heartwarming…

They say you can’t teach an old dog a new trick, but they’re wrong. I present to you a story of how one man, Thayne Hamilton, from Washington state, has taught many old dogs how to love again, and how to enjoy being a dog while trusting humans. Check out the original story on Little Things and be sure to watch the video at the bottom of the story.

May we have many more Thayne Hamiltons in the world.

Read and watch Thayne and Grey Muzzle Rescue’s story here.  (And have the tissues handy, you’re going to need them.)

Live Positively

One thing in my quest to live more positively has been to disconnect from the constant barrage of media negativity. As an activist and sometimes loud mouth on certain subjects, I get a lot of news and information sent my way. But as a person who struggles with major depression, anxiety, and PTSD, I can only take so much before I start shutting down. For some time I have urged friends and family members who also struggle with various issues to take a break for themselves, listen to their bodies, minds, and souls. Imagine my pleasant surprise when a friend on Facebook just shared this picture:


So wise words to live by. If you must “infect” your mind, do it with love and goodness. Look for the good around you, whether it’s the clear blue sky on a crisp winter day, your pet looking at you adoringly (unless you have a cat, then he or she is probably more likely thinking “hey, hoomin, feed me. Now.” Just kidding, my cats teach me the meaning of love on a daily basis. Do yourself a favour and find 3 things, no matter how big or small, that are good today. It’s a start.

Blessings to you.

How To Escape Loneliness

What a wonderful post. To find happiness, we must find it first in ourselves, and then share it. We cannot find it through possessions or other people.


Our family surrounds us at birth, and they’re present for the most part throughout your life, but they never warned you of the loneliness in this world. They never prepared you for the harsh truths and rough life that you may lead.

You were thrown headfirst endlessly seeking happiness and pleasure. Through the entire journey you fall and fail, and fall and fail some more, trying to find a speck of happiness in someone or something.

Your Social Circle

I depend on my social circle to a very large degree. I don’t know who I would be without them. I would be lost.

But before this blissful time, I was hopelessly alone. All through elementary and high school, I just had myself. I was ridiculed and severely unhappy.

In elementary school, I would pretend I was sick and stay home. In high school, I hung out with the librarian and…

Little things. And not so little things.


Once we stop laughing at this, (and I admit, it made me laugh nice and long) take a moment to actually think about it. When was the last time you stopped to think about someone or something else? Make today the day you think about someone else and do something, big or small, to help someone out. As the saying goes, tomorrow never comes but we do have today.
