Mew Year's Resolutions: So Hard to KeepPublished December 30, 2009
Making New Year's resolutions is not my strong suit. Of course I can think of many things I want to change, but for me, after the inspiration passes, at the end of the day, I don't follow through. I have to admit is a symptom of my not being sufficiently organized or disciplined to maintain the energy flowing.
So this year I decided that it was time to end my procrastination about keeping the promises I make to myself and follow through with these commitments. Naturally, seeking the sage advice of a respected Guru is always helpful.
One of my most deeply revered teachers used to remind us, in his lectures, that "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
So it was no coincidence, (as my most important resolution to ring in the new year is to doggedly adhere to a strict schedule to help ensure that I get enough sleep), that an email arrived in my box the other day with the purrfect role model and guide to assist me through this step. I am eternally grateful to the kind friend who must be psychic! Since felines are the master of sleep, this very tuckered-out kitten has now become a "mews" and inspiration.
Not only is this sleep-provoking production, uploaded to YouTube by VideoBooN, (with close to 10 million hits so far), one of the most popular videos on the Internet, but it is also one that ranks very high in the Awwwwwwwww factor scale. What an adorable Persian Kitten! Enjoy it as long as you can remain awake!
I purrvantly wish that your year ahead is filled with an abundance of joy, love and serenity, and of course, an overflow of head- bonks, purrs and wagging tails.
What kind of resolutions have you made so far? Will you seek counsel from your pets to help you keep them? Please share your plans with us by leaving a comment.
