advice from fergus


He says to take a nap. Dream deep gulping breaths of sleep. Relax. Indulge in stretching. Feel each finger as it reaches to its full length: each joint, each apendage, each muscle. Find a spot of sun to wrap yourself in. Luxuriate in warmth. Practice listening with open ears. Eat food with exactness, quiet contemplation. Close your eyes. Pay attention to your body. Move with intention. Know you are beautiful. Absolute perfection, no question about it. Everyone loves you.

And why wouldn't they?

...what do your favorite animals tell you?

He's a beautiful boy - love those eyes!

My cat says to take some time (even if it's just a few minutes) to relax (and maybe throw around a catnip toy or two).

My dog says, "Give me food" and "I'm too dumb not to knock over the baby." To be fair, he's not actually one of my favorite animals.
