All Veterinarians Are NOT Created Equal

After moving to a new state one of the first things I knew needed to be done was to find a new veterinarian for my senior dog.

I found a nice looking place nearby my home but looks aren’t everything. It didn’t take me very long to realize that all veterinarians are not created equally.

Maybe my other vet spoiled me. She was an amazing woman who truly had a gift and a love for animals great and small. Even if we weren’t there to see her, but only for a nail trimming, she always made it a point to peak her head in and say hello…. not just to me… but to whichever pet I was there with that day.

When my Sheltie became arthritic she would kneel down on the floor to do her examinations so as not to cause discomfort to my baby. To me that was the true sign of a great veterinarian.

On the other hand, my new vet, well I don’t think I’ve even met her yet. I made my initial appointment to see her so we could introduce ourselves and get acquainted with each other but instead I met her Physician Assistant. I was charged the full doctor’s office fee without actually seeing the doctor. That didn’t go over very well with me.

Anyway, pretty sure I’m going to be looking for a new vet in the very near future.

Life is just one cliche’ after another…

It’s been a fabulous four-day weekend! Life is good. The universe is full of surprises and I’ve learned in my recent years that it truly is better to wake up with a grateful heart.

After spending a good chunk of my life trying to hold on to a past that no longer wanted to hold on to me, I’ve finally come to understand the meaning of “Letting Go”.  And yes, it is freeing.

Life truly is about flow. It’s true that one journey ends and another begins. I’ve never really grasped that concept until now. We have to let go. We have to eagerly let go and eagerly and vigilantly seek out the new.

As a young girl I instinctively knew this. If someone wasn’t treating me right or a situation didn’t serve to move me closer to what I wanted, I said adios and moved right along.  Somewhere along the journey someone got the thought into my head that this was selfish. Someone somewhere convinced me that I should give people second chances. The problem with second chances is they became third chances, and fourth chances, and so on and so forth.

In looking back, I can see that every time I gave someone or some situation a second chance I was actually lowering my vibration and cheapening my value. Not only did they lose respect for me but I lost respect for me too. Every time I accepted less than I desired or deserved the Universe took note and sent me lesser and lower opportunities.

I used to lament that all I had to choose from were crumbs …. but I had been the one who had set the table.

I no longer think it’s selfish to want to surround myself with good people and move toward achieving my goals. Not every person or situation that you come in contact with deserves a place in your life. We must choose wisely.

It’s ok to take your time and be particular and selective with your own life. It’s not only ok, it’s necessary for your self-esteem and confidence. With each choice you make you’re creating the life you want to live. That’s not selfish, it’s smart.  The better the choices we make the better choices the universe offers us.

Raise your vibration! Start today! It’s never too late.
