The Present Moment Machine

A few months ago we brought home a new puppy. His name is Francis, and raising him has been a lot of work. The house training. The attention needing. The trips to the vet. The waking up in the middle of the night to take him outside. Of course it’s also been a lot of fun watching him get bigger every day, getting to know his quirky personality, and helping him explore the world.

Here’s what I didn’t expect. He is actually a present moment machine disguised as a Boston Terrier. Whenever you are around him you are transported directly into the present. You aren’t worrying about meeting deadlines at work, paying your taxes, or missing your workout yesterday. You are just right there in the moment. Not sure how he does it, but I highly recommend picking one up.
