My New Rescue Dog and the Picture in Your MInd

This has been a week of mixed emotions for me.On Monday we said “Good-bye” to the Weimaraner we rescued more than 12 years ago.He truly was an amazing animal and one I bonded with completely.Everything about this week has been bittersweet.

Tomorrow we will arrive to meet our new special boy and take him back to his now furever home.I am anxious, excited and scared.I hope that the picture of what comes next in my mind will come to pass.

That’s what it is like to dream about something and then realize it has the potential to happen.

Now, don’t get me wrong.I’m no Pollyanna.I have another dog at home and know there will be some bumpy times until everyone settles in.Expecting this helps me be realistic but I still have some anxiety about those bumpy moments.I’m in this rescue for the long run and am willing to do what it takes to make that picture in my mind of two happy dogs playing and loving life together happen.

What about that picture in your mind? You have a picture in your mind too; a dream, a vision of what you really want to be doing.I bet you feel mixed emotions about that dream as well.

Maybe it’s still a dream because you are nervous,excited and scared and because you know there would be bumpy times trying to make it happen. Maybe it’s still a dream because as much as you want it to happen you just can’t seem to get started.

So it stays just a picture in your mind.

Every time we want something badly enough and let it stay just a picture in our mind, we lose a little part of our soul. It’s a lot like being hungry but not letting yourself eat anything.

The picture in my mind started several months ago. A starved dog, just skin and bones crossed my pet searches.He was too famished for a vet to even estimate his age. But, I knew this dog was the one for me.

I will travel 1000 miles to get this animal and bring him home.I will be nervous, excited and scared to meet him as I wonder if it will work out.

Let’s face it, we never know whether the picture in our mind will really work out until we try.

And I am not satisfied having my picture be another person’s reality.So I will take a chance.

Maybe it’s time for you to do the same.Stop dreaming about the picture and take a chance living the reality.Take that first step towards something you really want.

Because the picture in your mind becomes someone’s reality every day.

Isn’t it time it became YOURS?

I’ll keep you posted, but for now, here’s a before/after of the picture in my mind.

Tomorrow he becomes my reality.
