Phew!  Yesterday was a super full day.  I had 2 writing deadlines of some real substance, I taught a yoga and meditation class, I taught the final day of my Spiritual Counseling Training Intensive, I was the guest teacher at the Presenter Series, I taught Masterful Living and more.  It was a really packed day.  It was beautiful and I enjoyed it.

Now, Bodhi, my puppy, doesn’t like it when I’m on zoom, and the computer all day like that.

She wants me to play with her and walk with her and do fun things with her.  Of course she does.  She’s a puppy.

Here’s what I’m learning to do because of Bodhi, I’m taking 10 minute play breaks.

We go out side we play fetch.  We take a quick walk in the woods where she can run and jump and sniff, sniff, sniff.  It’s good for both of us.

Sometimes all I have time for is 5 minutes of playing tug with one of Bodhii’s toys.  Or maybe I get down on the floor and just pet her and cuddle for a bit.  

I find it’s so good for me to have a total change of focus, and a change of state of mind even for short periods.  Of course I feel obligated to take her for long walks a couple of times a day, but sometimes I can only do 30 minutes.  I don’t mind the obligation at all.  

When I can’t spend as much time running her around I make sure she has plenty of things to chew on.  Chewing and licking is really comforting for dogs.  It can also tire them out.  

Bodhi teaches me things every day.

She’s an excellent companion.  It is my joy to be able to care for her and make life fun for her.  We’re having a holy relationship for sure.  

Right now, we’re in Maine on Deer Isle at my family’s home.  She’s getting lots of opportunity to explore and discover and smell new things.  That is very exciting for her so she’s more than content to just be outside and free to roam.  

Bodhi can be so sweet.  When we drive in the car, ESPECIALLY when I’m taking her to play with her best friend (another dog) she’s so grateful and happy she sits in the middle leaning on the console between the seats in the car and she leans her head against mine.  Her gratitude is so palpable.  It’s mutual.  Life is good!
