Try Something New

Try something new whenever you can, because you never know what will make you happy until you try it.  We’re all afraid of trying new things at times, but if you can just focus on being yourself and doing what interests you or makes you curious, you’re bound to discover new joy and new fun in life. There’s nothing like being bold, being yourself and doing what makes you happy to make you feel alive. The classic example is Mishu’s adorable first ever day in the snow. Mishu had never seen snow before, and being a survivor, she is naturally suspicious and was afraid. But Mishu is also adventurous and bold, and once she decided to check out the white stuff, she had the time of her life. Lesson learned – if you want to have fun, try something new.

I have so much empathy I often get overwhelmed with emotion. Am I normal, Diego asks, Mishu answers

I have so much empathy I often get overwhelmed with emotion. Am I normal, Diego asks, Mishu answers

Diego,
I’m pretty sensitive to my humans and when I notice they’re in distress, I do one of two things. If the distress comes from them, I just keep them company so they feel better. In this case, I don’t get upset myself (how could that even be helpful?), but I comfort them with my calmness. On the other hand, if I sense distress coming from an external source (i.e. someone they feel threatened by)… well I can get a little crazy trying to protect them. Not sure I recommend that for a human (I think barking would definitely make people think you’re weird), but either way you get the picture — when people you care about are distressed try focus on what you can do to help them, without getting too upset yourself.
Love you Diego!
❤️ Mishu
