Nature Takes Her Time and So Can We

"Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished." Lao Tzu


Some who follow me on Facebook were notified in mid-February of this year, that my beloved pup, Skylar, of 14 years passed away. How he passed, was shocking and very unexpected. 

Since that time, a 'reset' button has been pushed, forcing me to reassess my lifestyle and values. Before that time, I was flying on auto pilot; over extending and exerting myself in various realms of life. Moving forward from this experience of loss, I have made the commitment to really practice being present with all that I do (as often as I can). 

Since embracing this practice of being more present with my daily lifestyle, I've noticed stress levels decrease. Thinking clearly, making sound decisions, improved communication, and peace of mind have been and continue to be notable benefits. 


Nature takes her time with each moment, and so can we.

Hi Laura- I am so sorry for your loss. You know, I think we could all use more "being in the present."

Laura, I feel your pain...it is hard to lose a pet, they are family, just like it is hard to lose a parent or two... the picture reminded me of my mother, she used to love that flower I can not even say the name of the flower without crying...Endre

Good point Laura.  I'm getting more patient about some things the older I get.

You see, Skylar left you a last legacy. Taking a step back to review your lifestyle and slow down to live and enjoy life. You only live on this earth, once... Enjoy and savor the 'now', the good moments, and the good things available to you. 🧘‍♀️ 🙏

Good morning Laura. I didn't know of your loss and I am soooooo very very sorry. I can certainly relate. No beloved companion can ever be replaced but I do  hope in time you can honor your beloved by saving another who wouldn't make it without you.

Hi Laura, so sorry for your loss.  I wish you the best through the healing process.  Cheers!

So sorry about Skylar. It often takes a loss, or an unexpected event to get us to recalibrate. I'm going through it right now with my father. We have hospice here and going through the transition as he passes on conjures up many philosophical feelings and thoughts.
