Dude Has the Right Idea

The Dude is always chilling. He reminds me that no matter what is going on, all you gotta do is chill. I am doing just that. Lots to do today, but I am taking more breaks. 

Chilling. That is a good habit to get into.

And if things come up you cannot control, just take some deep breaths, and chill. The Dude is teaching me a lot. I hope you have a similar teacher in your world. Life is too short not to enjoy the moments.

By the way, today is Saturday Critters challenge day. The Dude says he wants to join! He is chilling in the screen room. He did a lot of bird watching earlier and now he needs a nap.

  1. Its great to take breaks like I did on the return journey from Hawkes Bay to Auckland…However, with life, if someone needs you and has an medical emergency well I cant take a break, that can be very stressful sometimes..

  2. It’s always when we’re in trouble that we need to chill,
    but that is the hardest time to chill … lol
    such irony

    The Dude looks really chilled in there, as with most of his photos :p

  3. a good friend of mine once said: “change is never the problem.” We all looked at him like he was crazy. “It is the reaction to change, that is the problem!”

    i try to live by that.
