Life is a gift and it is very important to live it your way and with gusto.
If there is something in your life that is missing (as in my case: I was starving, living in the streets of Mexico, and I had no master), do not be afraid to ask for it. Take a dare and ask for it, even if it seems impossible.
Just ask with all the love that God gave you. It is not far from you. It will be delivered to you. If sometimes you have to get gnarly or growly, do it.
The world will respect you and know that you are serious. Do everything in the name of love and ask for what you need with love.
And when you receive what you have asked for (a loving home, with a loving master) live every single day with gratitude.
Wake up in the morning dancing, and moving your tail. When you eat breakfast, eat it with gusto, enjoying every single morsel. Later, stretch out in the patio, on the grass or in a lawn chair. Enjoy the sun, its light and all its warmth.
Love, and make every member of your family laugh. The laughter and the joy are good for you and for the other hearts that share your home. Always, always, always give thanks for what you have in your life.
Give your family every bit of what is you. Every bit of what you have become. Your only true mission in life is to share your love and to give joy to the people who surround you. For those are the people who have loved you with everything they are, their heart and soul.
Enjoy to the fullest every single day. Every day, receive God's blessings with all your heart, and be grateful for all of it.
In the end, everything must come to an end. But you will go to eternity knowing that you became all that you were meant to become. I became me, simply me. And, I loved, and I was loved deeply.
I gave everything I had to life, because it was worth living. I asked for everything, I got everything.
That, my friends is living. That is how I lived my life!
