This is definitely the truth when it comes to 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.

Each point, though, still applies. This is a good list to live by . . . to aim for.

I dunno... I know some people who fit everything on that list except the part about coffee.

Gives new meaning to the phrase "living a dog's life."

And my dog misses that list by one. He is NEVER understanding when I'm too busy to give him attention. :p

Ever seen a cat that could live up to that one? :unsure:
Nope, if I was reading something and the cat wanted attention she would purposely lie on the book or paper so you couldn't read it anymore or she would tear holes in it with her claws or teeth lol. She was certainly not understanding if she did not get her attention.

My sweet little Nancia could. Man, I still miss that cat.

Maxwell, a very large black-and-grey striped tabby cat, could live up to that. He was the only cat my father ever liked, because he was very undemanding. He didn't have to have your attention. It was enough for him to be in the same room. He would often wander into my father's leather shop and lie in the corner, just hanging out with dad.

Spike, a black cat, took relaxation to an art form. He was the only cat I ever knew who would lie on the dash of a car when the car was in the automatic car wash and just watch the water go back and forth. Every other cat totally freaked out. Spike was very undemanding... maybe because he was too lazy to be demanding.

Actually... looking over that list in the OP, all three of those cats hit every one of those points.

I take that back. He was not lazy. He was always hunting mice and lizards in the wilds of the back yard. That's probably how he stayed so thin.

He just never got uptight over anything.
