This is Digby Pancake. Yesterday was a long day. Is that possible? Sometimes it feels like the clock goes slower than usual. The ride to the vet sure seemed to go on forever.
I would rather get something unpleasant over with than think about it. That’s for sure.
But when I got to the vet, I was surprised at myself. I really wasn’t scared.
I know that the persons were more nervous than I was. I went right inside. I didn’t even mind all the kisses and hugs and love I got from the vet person. The tests they had to do? Well. I choose not to focus on that part. Girl Person says she didn’t like tests in school either.
I don’t feel good some of the time. But I do feel good most of the time.
So why focus on the bad? Why focus on bad news when you can focus on the positive news? For me, I may have some things wrong with my liver, which I have no clue what that is. But it doesn’t much matter to me. The important thing is taking care of myself. Taking my medicine. Eating good. Good love. And trying!!! You always have to try.
The rest will not be my focus. I will make this promise every day.
Focusing on the positive may not come easy to some. But anyone can change.
Girl Person used to worry so much more. But when we started traveling, and there were many things we couldn’t control and many things unexpected that happened, she changed. She realized that focusing on the negative will most certainly bring your worst fears on. But when you choose, and it is a choice, to remain positive, life will be much better.
That alone won’t stop problems or cure illness. But it sure will help. How in the world could it hurt?
Positivity may not come natural. But take it from me, practice makes perfect. Practice positivity. You can do it! I can do it!
