One of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days and when you talk to others, they are also having one? You don't even need to put words to what that means, the other person understands!

Today was one of "those" days! It was exhausting! Every time we turned around there was another speedbump or obstacle that we didn't see. Bode and I may take tomorrow off because of it, but we know our human counterparts don't have that luxury.

The therapists at the office do such a great job of containing their exhaustion and personal feelings when this happens that it is able to stay in the workroom and out of the waiting room and therapy rooms.

Today there was laughter through the rough spots alongside of sarcasm and at times dancing without music.

You read that correctly, we are human (or in our case canine) and do not have some superpower that exempts us from bad experiences, it is how we work through the experience that is what is important. We could chose to shut down, close down, and walk away...but instead we chose to find a way to relieve the stress and move forward.

So next time you are having "one of those days", find someone to laugh with, run with, or whatever helps you move forward and not get stuck...or an early bed time could help too!

Sleepy...oh, so sleepy...

Hi Abbey! yes it was "one of those days" Sorry you and Bode are exhausted, me too!! We are so lucky at our office that we have each other to lean on and laugh with when times get tough. Relax and have a spa day today. You have earned it!
