We're spending the first day of 2011 just like every other day, just doing what Siberians do. Life is simple that way. No resolutions, no promises, no remorse. I think we dogs & cats do the whole Zen thing of just "being" much better than humans do. Its a lesson we hope will rub off on them. So, in the spirit of the whole New Year's Day resolution thing, we offer ours as an example to our human friends of how really simple it is:
We vow to just "be" that which we are, in 2011. To take each day as it comes, not to linger in the past or wish away today in anticipation of tomorrow. We vow to savor the moment, whether it be spent snoozing, playing, or working. We vow to stop & smell the roses and whatever else crosses our path, as everything is interesting. We vow to spend time in the presence of those we love, no matter how hectic things get. We vow to never forget a kindness, and to never hold a grudge over what has passed, as forgiveness is the key to living in peace. We are here for such a short time, (as so many of our owners lament), so let each precious moment be spent in celebration of the wonder of life, as this too shall pass.
We cherish the friendships we've made in 2010, and look forward to spending the next year weaving that web of friendship thru cyberspace, from one end of the world to the other.
Happy New Year, dear friends!
