The scenery changes constantly as we "Pet Sitters" are in so many different homes, Condominiums, Apartments, parks & neighborhoods going place to place. Which satisfies the wanderer in me. Maybe being raised in a military family living around the world and in our beautiful country created the wandering spirit I have along with the true appreciation of what its like to stand still in one town for a good while. 15 years here fifteen years there is a big slow down on my home base moving. (Thank goodness!) Now don't laugh but until now I never thought of myself as a Gypsy nomad kinda gal but looking back when I was younger I certainly was. I just thought that I was very flexible and everything was such a great adventure! I was pretty fearless!
My parents instilled a great love & respect for animals of all kinds and people of all kinds as well. Having more flexibility toward the world that has really been a bonus through out my life. We were always rescuing animals and always had 4 legged children including horses, birds, lizards, toads. Mom did draw the line with keeping snakes in the house but that didn't get in the way of my fascination/admiration of them!
As I grew into a mature woman I found the allure of the corporate world to be another amazing adventure but it took me away from being involved with having time for a lot of animals plus there was a period in my life were I had no pets and there was a gap in my life without them truly.
What I now know is that working with animals are a great way of grounding my high, Tiggur like energy yet they are always ready to play or cuddle or play or cuddle. *grinning big time* Plus they don't care if I am wearing a suit or pajamas's they are going to get slobber and hair on it no matter.
I am still blown away with the fun of being a pet sitter and when I don't let the hectic busy schedule get on my nerves my life is content and happy and relaxed more than I have ever been as an adult. That means everything to me.
It feels like I have come full circle and wow what a nice feeling!
I hope that whoever reads this is finding that same kind of serenity and doing what ever it takes to get it!
Yours in Creating a Better Life,
