And I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party. Note: This wasn’t my dog or situation; I thought it was worth sharing though. The photos and captions on this post have been reproduced as they originally appeared on photographer Robyn Arouty’s blog. http://www.robynarouty.com/

Why You’re Pursuing Happiness All Wrong

March 14, 2016 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

By Nick Notas

I was sitting around the table with a bunch of people who had “made it”. They were experts in their respective fields, six-figure earners, and successful entrepreneurs who’d worked with famous celebrities and politicians. By all accounts, they were the kind of people that so many of us can’t help but envy.

As the night went on, however, a different story unfolded. Thanks to some interesting question cards, we all started to reveal a similar journey we were going through.

We all spent years pursuing what we believed would make us happy — money, status, influence, women. All of us achieved those goals and then realized, “Now what?”

We weren’t suddenly happier. In fact, some of us were left unfulfilled and disappointed. We’d invested energy, time, and emotion chasing our dreams — often at the expense of personal values and relationships. We didn’t take for granted what we had, but we also were forced to see that those accomplishments didn’t provide lasting fulfillment.

A Dying Dog’s Goodbye Letter To His Human

A dog owner shared a heartfelt tribute to his dog Benny after Benny passed away recently.

“I wrote a story to cope with my grief,” said Austin, Texas musician and owner of Benny, John Pointer.

Here’s is Benny’s story, as posted on Facebook:

“Yesterday was a weird day. I couldn’t get myself out of bed. The guy I live with lifted me up. I tried to get my legs under me, but they wouldn’t cooperate. He said, ‘Don’t worry, I gotcha, buddy,’ carried me downstairs, and out the front door. That was so nice of him. I needed to pee so badly, I just had to go right there where he put me down. Normally I wouldn’t, but we both decided to make an exception to the rule.

I started walking down the parking lot toward that place where all the dogs like me go to poop. I felt my paws dragging on the ground. ‘How strange,’ I thought. Then suddenly, I just had to go, really badly. In the middle of the parking lot. Normally, I wouldn’t do that. It’s against the rules.”

“My person cleaned up the mess. He’s good at that. I felt embarrassed, looked at him, and he said, ‘Want to keep walking, buddy?’ I did, but it was surprisingly tough. By the time we reached the end of the parking lot, my head was spinning. I tried to climb the little hill, and nearly fell over. I couldn’t figure out what was going on.

He reached down again, and ran his hands over me. That felt good. He picked me up, and carried me home. I was still confused, and my head was light, but I was glad not to have to walk all the way back. It suddenly seemed like an impossible distance.”
