Animal Message of the Day: Coco

From Coco: I have felt great defeat in my life. I lost a lot at one point and I gave up on hope. But time and love has helped me heal. I’m not a tough guy but I had to become that way to survive. It wasn’t who I am but it was who I needed to be when nothing else made sense. Sometimes, when you meet someone who is gruff on the outside, it is because they are protecting something so delicate on the inside. Try to remember that. You don’t know what sorrow or trauma they are holding in their hearts. Being gruff is just a barrier they put up to keep others from hurting them again. It takes safety and trust and time to learn to let it go and be free. I am lucky because I found that. Life is good again. I can stand out in the sun and feel the warmth fill me in every cell and know that it is mine and I can breathe and tomorrow will be another day. For a while, I wasn’t sure there would be a tomorrow. If you are feeling that way, just know that the sun will come out again. You can do this. You’ve got me here believing in you and cheering you on. Don’t give up. Don’t lose yourself. Keep the faith.”


In an effort to help us all through the stress, fear, and challenges faced by the COVID-19 virus, we are posting an animal message a day. (All messages through animal communicator/co-founder Dawn Hayman) The animals were each asked: What do you feel appreciation for in your life? Or “What would you like to share?”
