This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I have watched the persons struggle this week. If there was a struggle bus, they would have been taking a ride on it.
I guess I just don’t understand persons sometimes. Although everything is new to me, I can look at things from a different perspective. A fresh set of eyes you might say.
And I’m thinking everyone is unhappy a lot of the time. And it makes me sad.
I don’t know what’s going on the world. I only know what is happening in mine. The persons and Brickle had a hard time this week with vet appointments and traffic and reservations. They were really upset alot.
I also heard them talking about other things going on bad in different places of the world. And although I don’t understand and I don’t want to, I do know this. Even if someone has it worse than you do, it doesn’t make what you are going thru any less important. I also love you. And I see that everyone is going thru something.
I know when I didn’t have a home and also when I was in the shelter, life was very hard. It’s hard now for me in a different way. I’m expected to know why I shouldn’t bark or steal food from the counter. I’m expected to walk with a leash on me.
It’s a different kind of hard then when I was in the shelter. But being in the shelter doesn’t make what I’m going thru now any less.
It helps me to sometimes put my feet up.
I look at my feet and I see the miles I’ve walked. I see how far I have come. I see how far I have to go.
I don’t dwell on other people’s feet when mine hurt. I can only help my feet first so I can walk to help someone else.
Take care of you so you can take care of and care about others.
Put your feet up today. Acknowledging what you’re going thru not compared to someone else is important. Because you are important.
