Today on October 1, 1998, I came into this beautiful world in Eureka, California. What a long strange trip it was!
From abandoned shelter puppy to a three-legged cheerleader for canine amputees everywhere, my journey took me to places I never dreamed of.
Each day was a new day, every moment one to be grateful for, and treasure with my people. This is what I mean by “living in the Now.”
Living in the Now was my mission then, today, and always.
And I’ll keep on sharing it with all of you, by keeping the Tripawds Community alive and thriving.
So today, on my birthday, do me a favor OK? First, give your animals lots of hugs and pats from me. Take in the sweet smell of their fur, tell them that you love them. And while you’re at it, tell your human family that too!
Then, take this message in, and keep it in a safe place within your heart, so that when life gets ruff, you can stop, take a deep breath, and remember the importance of living in the Now.
What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new.
Right now. — anonymous
