Ripley says… Happy New Year!
Hello. My name is Ripley an’ I am a broken haired lurcher. I’m only two but I have learned one or two things about life an’ I wanted to share them with you. My friend Timmy runs this blog an’ he let me borrow it for a bit.
Ripley’s life lessons . . .
Take time to enjoy the scenery.
Life will sometimes bring you strange bedfellows. Embrace them.
Enjoy seeing new places.
Always check your friends want to play before bouncin’ all over them.
Follow your own path. It confuses people.
Make sure you get enough chill time.
Be ready to drop everything to go on a ‘venture with a friend.
Share a laugh with people you love.
Always have that one special friend you can be yourself with.
Talk to animals. ‘specially dogs.
Did I mention getting’ enough chill time?
It’s OK to get a little muddy sometimes. It’ll wash off and you may end up smellin’ of raspberries.
Don’t worry what others think about you.
Make sure you have somewhere you can feel safe, secure an’ comf’table.
Learn to listen to good advice
If you’re not sure what to do next, have a sit down and listen to what your heart is tellin’ you.
Sometimes, you just need coffee.
If it makes you feel good, do it. Even if other folks don’t understand.
Always be ready to go for a walk in the countryside.
Make lots of time for relaxin’ with a friend.
Eat good food.
Take an active int’rest in other people’s work.
Sometimes, the only thing to do is to just tune out and let the world go by.
And remember to enjoy the journey . . .
