Jump for joy

Life is about glee, the elation of the simple fact that we’re alive. We dogs are very good at that. But Missy needs regular reminders, and I’m all too happy to do that for her. For example through jumping.

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Jumping is fun. I jump up onto benches, tree trunks, even trees themselves. In these moments, I feel fearless. Light, free.

I wish the same for Missy. I know it’s harder for her, her muscles and joints are not that strong or flexible but jump is jump, even if it’s small. Happiness is in the small things!

So much fun! That’s what exercise should be about!

What makes you jump for joy?
