All my life, I have longed for the past, worried about the future and grudgingly enjoyed the current moment. I am trying to be more mindful as I accept things I cannot change. My dog Zac is such a shining example for me to emulate. He lives in the moment all the time. He is excited and grateful to eat the same food everyday. He greets my husband with a gift, even if it is his own shoe, every time he walks into the house.
We moved Zac 1000s of miles to a new country. From the day he landed here, he has walked along new paths, wagging his tail, sniffing new dogs and even when the aggressive ones leap at him, he just shakes his tail and moves on.
