Wake Up Like Remi

  • Jan 14, 2020

Sometimes you get ideas from the strangest places….

Remi is our 9-year-old black lab.  Over the Holidays, she and I were enjoying a beautiful run in our favorite spot, Patapsco State Park.  It is my sanctuary where I go to be one with nature, disconnect from all technology and do my big thinking and thanking.

During this run, I asked myself; ‘What if we could all Wake Up Like Remi??’

Every morning, I let her out of her crate before everyone in our family wakes up.  Remi comes barreling out, tail wagging, doing what we call ‘The Remi Run Through’.  This is where she goes all the way between our legs because she wants us to scratch her hindquarters.

So what’s my point?

The point is that every morning Remi wakes up Happy and full of Energy…

She isn’t crabby because she didn’t sleep well, she isn’t worried about what is going on in her personal life, how to pay for college, getting the big account or holding onto to petty grudges from 2 weeks earlier….She just wakes up happy with her tail wagging ready to take on the day!

Imagine how much happier we would be if every day was a fresh start.  Imagine how much our stress and worry would be reduced.  Imagine how much we can improve things with that mindset…

The positive impact on our relationships with our family, friends, customers and colleagues would be massive.

Wishing you a Healthy and Happy 2020 and that you can ‘Wake up Like Remi!’
