What do you see in this picture?
Two dogs playing? Me, too. Ruby and Trapper just LOVE to play! What is it about sticks and limbs that attract them? Maybe it looks like a big bone. Yet once they grab it, they know it’s not a bone. That doesn’t deter them.
I also see something else. I see Trapper’s left front and right rear paws off the ground, while Ruby’s right front and left rear are up. It amazes me how those on four legs can navigate so effortlessly.
Do babies crawl that way??
Have you ever tried to walk on all fours that way? As I wrote this, I did…yes, I’m a little on the nutty side sometimes. It didn’t feel natural or effortless at all for me. Try it.
Okay, did you try it?
If you did, I believe you’re like me…open to new things, to experimenting. If not, you’re either reading this somewhere where you’d feel embarrassed to do it or you’re not open to trying things a different way. The other alternative I can think of is that you’ve already tried it before!
Seeing and trying different alternatives can open us up to creativity and fun.
When you disagree with someone today, try seeing it a different way and see what happens.
Why not try something different today? (Did you get down on all fours???) 🙂
We are the most evolved creatures on earth. At birth, we have the genetic capabilities to grow and learn to stand and walk on two feet, to talk, and write and read. Some people think the process is complete when they reach adulthood. Today I was at my grandson’s school and saw a poster of goals, one of which was be a life-long learner. We need to take this to heart and realize the importance of trying new things and seeing things in different perspectives. Continue evolving.
