These are certainly challenging times! Whether it comes from the TV, computer or daily paper, the news is hard to hear. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been impacted by the struggling economy.
As an animal lover, some of the saddest stories are those of the critters who’ve been brought to shelters or simply abandoned by families no longer able to care for them. Rescue organizations are overwhelmed with loving animals who don’t understand what they did wrong, or where their people went.
It may be tempting to jump into the “river of fear” and let the current take you wherever it wants to, but please DON’T DO IT!
Here’s something I just read online from the Institute of HeartMath. It’s called the De-Stress Kit, and I found a lot of valuable ideas for grounding myself and remaining centered during these crazy times.
The company is offering a free download of this information - www.heartmath.org/destresskit.
If it calls to you I hope you’ll check it out. Then go throw your arms around your beloved animal companion and remember that you can get through anything…TOGETHER!
