What do you do for a living?

Through out our lives we have had a need to compare what we are doing to others.  See it in my kids, the need to compete and do better.  We here it on the playground, “where do you go to school?” or ” how many X do you have, I have X.”

This theme transcends into adulthood. What kind of car do you drive? What do you do? Where do you work?  What town do you live in? How many bedrooms?  The comparisons never seem to end.

With everything going on in my world I never know how to respond to the most common of these questions, What do you do for a living?

Do I answer run a home cleaning service? Or I sell the most amazing tea and  host fun tea parties! Or I am a part of an amazing company that has the best nutrition and skin care available!  Or I help people save on there energy and phone bill.  Or do I say I am a struggling writer of young adult fiction with a strong lean in Science fiction/fantasy?

All of these apply, depending on the person, anyone could lead to an amazing connection.  The struggle is which one? The answer could either lead to an amazing connection or a lost opportunity.  This is what I have come up with to solve the dilemma.

Saying Hello

It is funny how something so simple can trigger something so powerful.

Recently I started back in yoga, try to go at least once a week, twice when I can make it work.  It has definitely helped with me flexibility, back and neck pain.  In addition, the bonus of focusing on breathe and becoming more mindful.

During on class we did a meditation at the end of a class that I was having an unusually difficult time with balance posses.  it felt like someone was pushing me over.  So as I quieted my mind an image of a dog popped into my mind, more a puppy.

The puppy was jumping around and running toward and away.  It’s silky jet black curls bouncing as it played.  The pink tongue hanging out in pure joy of the fun.  She was my Circe.  She stopped by to say Hi and let me know she was happy.

My little muppet

Almost 2 years ago my baby girl, Circe, crossed the rainbow bridge.  I knew then and know now it was the right decision.  As a puppy and well into her adulthood she loved being active and lots of attention.  We would take 3-5 mile walks every day and still play fetch afterwards.  She was not only a very active pup, but loved to socialize.  Our walks were often interrupted with people wanting to pet her and she happily obliged. After she was brutally attacked by another dog her activity declined, but she was still a happy girl.  Once she hit “geriatric” age for dogs it was apparent walking was painful.  We tried various medicines but none of them set well in her tummy.  It was when she fell down the stair trying to follow me around the house we knew it was time.

Taking her to the Vet for the last time was difficult.  Laying on the floor with her as she took her last breath was even harder.  I am grateful she let me know that we made the correct decision.
