Positive Quote For The Day
“Treat everything as a privilege. As you go through the most mundane and repetitive tasks, tell yourself that it is a privilege and feel your mindful appreciation grow.“
just as I was about to do one of the most mundanest, repetitive and frankly icky tasks when you’re dealing with an elderly cat with a runny bottom…changing the cat litter…from 2 trays. I hate it so much I normally ‘let’ Jay do it…but he’s out. But I did what William DeFoore said and realised that…it is an utter privilege to have the company of this cat; it is an utter privilege that this animal trusts me so much, he will let me give him a bath; it is an utter privilege to help him feel clean and fresh; it is an utter privilege to make him comfortable with a clean litter tray; it is an utter privilege that he talks to me and I understand him; it is an utter privilege to stroke him and hear his purr.
Now I feel great. I can do this. I can do this so easily now. Thanks Mr. DeFoore…right as usual.
