Just Make One Dog Happy
When I was deep in the dumps, focused on feeling sorry for myself and some age-related issues that I could not avoid, I hit on a simple remedy. Instead of thinking about myself, I put my attention on the needs of others. In my case, it was my dog Lucky. I realized that even if I was momentarily sidelined from being able to do anything grand or important with my life, I could at least find meaning and happiness by just making one dog happy.
