2020 has been the most unprecedented and not normal year by far, so it's time we change up the way we make our resolutions and think more like our pets! We've learned so much from the wonderful dogs and cats that we have taken care of throughout the years that the New Year has us thinking about using some of those lessons as our 2021 New Year's resolutions.
Resolution #1: Make new friends. Adopt.
The best and most important lesson I've learned from my pets is that it doesn't matter what someone's background is to find amazing, life-long friends.
Resolution #2: Say you're sorry.
Pets are masters at getting into trouble and then giving us the most heart-felt "I'm sorry" looks... even if they do go and do the same thing again the next day. Does your pet say he or she is sorry?
Resolution #3: Don't worry about how others see you.
There's nothing like a dog chasing a ball to make me remember that I just need to be myself and let others view me how they will. Lesson? Go for what you want and what you feel is right.
Resolution #4: Nap often.
A nap helps you refresh yourself and can bring a whole new perspective to the way you see something. Ever wonder why cats always have that wise look? Cats spend most of the day napping!
Resolution #5: Look at things from a new angle.
It never hurts to just lay down, stick your head off the couch and see everything from a new angle.
