“Sunny” – What would a Health Blog be without some uplifting, inspirational anecdotes and mantras?
“The killer whale’s heart weighs one hundred kilos but in other respects it is light”.
This quote is from an ancient Eastern poet.
Its point has remained extremely poignant over the years and we find similar sentiments in our culture hundreds of years later.
Have you ever talked to a friend who has a dog? Ever heard anyone say something akin to:
“god, that’s the life, right? Eating, barking, wandering around and occasionally dozing off all day…Not a care in the world…MUST BE NICE”
Oddly, we are told on one hand that as Homo Sapien Sapiens, we are the apex of creation because we have the ability to think critically and reason…however, this often burdens us with elements that our pets [and, similarly, the killer whale] seem not to have…elements such as guilt, shame, imperfection, and inadequacy.
As humans, there is a time and place for these elements, but they should be on your terms. And they should have the purpose of helping you to be a better person.
Not a worry wart wracked with anxiety and depression.
Make amends if they need to be made.
Have a Sunny Sunday!
