THIS is pretty much my absolute favorite time of year in NJ for getting outside, and daily walks are such a pleasure. I’ve included a couple pics from them in this newsletter. I often use the time walking for a number of things, including reflecting about what can I share with my clients that might be helpful to them. On a recent walk, I realized a few little things and hope they might be of benefit to you and your animals.
FIRST off, Autumn is a great time to reflect and reevaluate what you are doing and where you are going in life. I find over and over again that each of our animals, whether cat, dog, horse or one of the more unusual ones, can hold a key to what the next most important thing to learn from is. Being that our animals are sometimes closer than many of the human beings in our lives, they can reflect our deepest issues, needs and desires, like looking into a mirror. If there is an issue that consistently comes up in your life with your animal friend, have you tried asking yourself what gift this problem has in it’s hand for you? It’s a valuable tool to use.
