Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine.
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains.

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles.

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it.

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time.
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment.

If you can conquer tension without medical help.
If you can relax without alcohol.

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs.
...Then... you are probably ......

The Family Dog!

  And you thought I was going to get all spiritual....

Until next time 


  1. You had me on that one!

  2. I didn't quite fall for it...but I think I've heard this one before.

    We ought to make one for horses.

  3. HAHA, I was reading this and thinking "this sure isn't me" lol

  4. What a relief! I'm reading and thinking: no, no, not that one either, no, man I must be an awful person -- but its okay because I'm not a dog!! Thanks for the smile.

  5. Wish my parrot was that zen! I guess parrots are more like humans...complicated!

    Thanks for the laugh. :)

  6. OH WOW! That had me going....YOU!!!
    Tee hehe!

  7. This is great. Thanks for sharing...I needed a good laugh!

  8. it's so true, isn't it? I sometimes wish I could be more like a dog.

  9. Was reading down the list, thinking this so isn't me then felt weirdly vindicated to find out I'm not the family dog!! LOL!!! Brilliant :D

  10. Great punchline! Thanks for the laugh!

  11. What a lovely blog - so wish there'd been a blog facility all those years ago when I had my dear horse. Like you say - he made me the person I am today teaching me so much about myself and even how to be a better parent I suspect! x
