Where do you shine?

Charmaine heard a great quote about keeping your light shining bright so it lights the path for others. Where do you shine bright in life? My brightest moments are when I am volunteering as a pet assisted therapy dog, I love helping shine my light on the path of the patients I volunteer with and watching them shine in the process.

When you shine, and are your authentic self, it gives other people permission to do the same, like a ripple effect. May your light be PAWsitively bright this week. Toby the dog.

Toby loves Wednesdays

Wednesday is Toby’s day to step into his passion and live his life purpose; this is the day he volunteers at the hospital. We have come to learn that Toby’s passion and purpose in life is to help and care for others. The joy that he experiences from his volunteer week lasts well into the days that follow.

It is like that for people as well. Your passions are what you love to do; you do these activities whether or not you were paid. When you are connected to your passion you may experience a lot of energy and increased focus to accomplish whatever you set your mind to. Your passions often help you define your purpose in life.

Like Toby, as you live your life passions on purpose, you will need to be open…open to opportunities and the people that enter your life. You must see every opportunity as a yearning to learn more about yourself and others. What lessons are you meant to learn? What places are you meant to go? What people are you going to meet along life’s journey that will open more doors of opportunity?

You are meant to do great things. Take time to discover your passions and your life purpose. Together, these have incredible potential and power to create the life you dream of and make it a reality.

Remember to be grateful for the things you currently have in your life so that you may receive more and see how truly rich and abundant your life is. When you view your world with abundance rather than scarcity, your world will continue to be abundant. What you believe and perceive, you can achieve!

Have a PAWsitive week.

Food for Thought

Here is a great quote I thought you would enjoy. Our friend Kaytie who owns an incredible centre for dogs called K9 Awareness Centre in St. Albert gave us this card that has a fitting thought for Valentines Day. It said Dogs are furry little vitamins for your soul.
Here's a few ways you can show your furry friend how much they nourish your soul:
  • Take your dog for a walk in their favourite park
  • Give your dog a massage
  • Do some focused play / focused activities with your dog (I particularly love it when Chris and Charmaine hide my toys and we play hide and seek)
  • Teach your dog a new trick
  • Tell your dog he/she is a good dog
Wishing you all a happy valentines day.
