Some of you may remember a post I did a little while back, 7 Key Lessons I learned from my dog Sam. It was a popular post & covered the many key lessons that we all can apply to our lives. It was a little ‘outside of the box’ but hey, you can learn so much by observing others, in this case, my pet dog, Sam.
Well I have learned One more valuable lesson. Sam had a recent injury & is now recovering at home from surgery. He had an operation this week to repair a snapped Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Did he complain? No, he just got on with it. There he was limping around, after diagnosis by Vet last weekend, business as usual. No complaints.
Sure he must have been in pain though I think he is now in more after surgery, at least in the short term.
Nevertheless, he soldiered on as I said, business as usual…..except for his daily walk with me that is.
“Resilience under pressure”…..doing what you have to do regardless of the obstacles.
This is another lesson well learned. Doing what has to be done regardless of how you feel either personally or how you feel about the job at hand.
“Resilience” is something that we all need to draw on when things get ‘tough’. Inspiration gets you into a state of “I’ve just got to do it”…..Motivation pushes you “to do it”…..Resilience helps you “keep doing it” when obstacles appear.
When have you needed “resilience” in your Life or are there times when you wished you had used some? Share your thoughts in the comments below, you know I like to read & reply.
By the way, the love of my faithful friend is being returned 100 fold from all our family during his recovery.
be good to yourselves
