When was the last time you sat down, looked at your furry loved ones then shared with them your admiration and appreciation of them? Perhaps you told them today…if so, awesome!
If by chance you haven’t ever thought to do so (although I’m thinking that if you receive and read my newsletters this is less likely to be true), now’s a great time to get started!
Perhaps you admire the way they include the other pets in their play or how well they do the job you asked them to do (i.e. watch the house while you’re gone)? Do you admire how easily they learn or how forgiving they are when you make a mistake with them? Maybe you admire how well they listen or make you laugh? Perhaps you admire them because they teach you how easy it is to love (and be loved by them)!
The admiration and appreciation is there! It’s just so easy to forget as we get wrapped up in our day-to-day activities how important it is to acknowledge, appreciate and simply admire those we love (furry or not).
Some may ask, “Is it really that important?”
Yes! It’s really THAT important! After all, I bet it feels good when you are admired and appreciated…am I right?
Admiring and appreciating our animal companions
helps them feel important and valued for what they contribute
gives them insights into what you’re thinking and feeling
lets them know you’re proud of them
provides a sense of connection they may not otherwise feel
reminds them of their strengths and their superpowers
allows you to express what’s in your heart
If you haven’t shared your admiration and appreciation with your furry loved ones, what better time than now? Take a minute and do that now (even if they aren’t there with you, picture them and share it with them that way).
It’s a great idea to talk to your pets and let them know you love them, are thinking of them and that you’re proud of them! Connecting with them each day goes a long way toward creating a deeper connection and a sense of well-being for your furry loved ones (and you may notice it does the same for you too)!
What do you admire and appreciate most about your pet?
