Walk the Dog

Even if you don’t have one.

I’ve been dog-sitting for a few months and I’ve discovered something life-changing.

The dog has to walk and take care of its business, twice a day.

Therefore, I must walk twice a day.

I’m not naturally the type of person that walks from point A in order to walk around and back to point A.

On the whole, I’ve been more of an A to B and B back to A, kind of person.

Being forced to do something can be pretty effective motivation to do it.

After just a short time, I look forward to this twice daily event where the dog does its business, and I do mine.

My life is much better for it.

Maybe walking the dog means stopping to pray, turning off noise, taking a nap, or pouring a cup of tea and reading slowly… twice a day.

Whatever you do, get a (metaphorical) dog and walk it, twice a day. If you don’t your home might be full of (metaphorical)…

This is my daily project where I write about diverse ideas.

This is ‘Dose’ #8.
