Today’s Heart Whisper: Dog lessons for humans from my dog ❤️

Vlog #5:

Dog wisdom: dog lessons for humans from my dog – DOG VIDEO (sweet/funny/touching/inspiring)

Starring….Roxy!!!

There are so many beautiful dog wisdoms and inspiring life lessons my dog taught me.

In creating this video, it was such an emotional journey to look back at the huge collection of photos, videos and memories my dog Roxy and I shared in the last 12 years.

Dogs are truly amazing beings. Loving, loyal, innocent, joyful and the best companions in the world!

I was deeply affected when a friend of Roxy’s passed away on January 25th 2019 (one of my best friend’s dog, Max), and I wanted to create a video that could show the moving bond there is between a dog (my sweet baby Roxy) and her doggy-mom (that would be me).

In memory and honour of Max. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit. It lives in our hearts forever. (December 15th 2008 – January 25th 2019)

With love,

Michèle & Roxy 💖💕xo

(Here’s my mom (who’s featured in the video) watching it on my laptop… this moment captured in a photo makes me so happy…sniff… 💖💖💖)

Today’s Heart Whisper… daring to dream ⭐️

Dare To Dream Your Beautiful Dream

How brave we are to dream.
To dream what seems
an impossible dream.

It takes courage to dream.
To believe in our dream.
To listen to our heart.
To hear our soul.
To walk our journey
towards the unknown.

Our dream wants change,
pushes discomfort
and asks for action.

It needs love,
it needs patience
and requires faith.

Faith in ourselves.
Faith in the Universe.
Faith in our vision.
Faith in our heart.
Faith in our soul
and faith in our dream.

We may want to run.
We may want to stop.
We may want to scream
and we may want to quit.

Rest if we must,
but we must never stop.

Never stop believing.
Never give up your dream.

Be daring.
Be brave.
Be you.

And one day,
in a single heartbeat,
your beautiful dream
comes true.

Today’s Heart Whisper… letting the heart light the way.

lighthouse

 

as eyes fixate
on captured sights

fragmented pieces
of pictured strife

chaos reigns

two-dimensional snaps
of a three-dimensional life
trapped by walls of spite

blinded
by the bricks that bind
and pain

scraps of fright
ablaze

hazed
in a cloud of hate

still…

a heart gazes
upon what lays
beyond the fume

a house light
setting a glimmering trail
amidst the smouldering clay
and melting stone

flares
calling home

Sunday’s Heart Whisper… the heart knows the light within☀️

The light within

 
when a soul shines
truly shines

the heart knows

for a true light
is not a pose

when one shines
you see
there is no glee

no rhyme
nor prose

for thine own light
is surely felt

as a warm glow
amidst a darkened night

or a long awaited breath
exhaling unrest

light
surely shines

if we let it be

for thine own light
is surely felt
beyond what anyone can see

if we simply set it free

400 followers!!

Back in January 2018, when I only had 80 followers, and when I decided to spread my message of optimism, inspiration and joy through this blogging community, I never imagined that in such a short time I’d have fallen in love with all of you, or that you’d be so kind to me in return…
