I received this the other day in my Notes from the Universe (these are fabulous, click to learn more)
Debbie , do you know why dogs are so quick to wag their tails and cats are so quick to purr? Even the ones that have been lonely, abused, and betrayed?
Because, as is true of all animals, they were instilled with the distant awareness that no matter what the world shows them, they’re still deeply loved and needed, that their presence alone has made a difference, and that in just the shake of a leg, seemingly without reason or rhyme, everything can FANTASTICALLY change for the better.
As is true of all people, except that sometimes they tend to forget.
I’m inspired by the way that animals are able to remain hopeful and learn to trust again with the help of kind and patient people. Animals know when a loving person has come along to offer help, and this note reminded me of that.
I also love the reminder of “their presence alone has made a difference”. There are so many folks that make a positive difference in the world every day, although many of those people do so anonymously. While the big gestures can certainly make a big impact and inspire others, I think all the smaller acts of kindness contribute just as much to the positivity in the world, if not more.
Thank you for these reminders Universe.
