Animal Message of the Day: Merlin

From Merlin: “Life is like eating a grape. If you squeeze too hard, it pops and all the good juice runs out before you can savor it all. But if you take your time and peel back the layers, you can enjoy eating the pulp and the juice and savor each part of it as you go. Young people try to squeeze everything they can as quickly as possible and miss half of the good stuff because they discard it as waste. But as we mature, we understand that there is more to life that we were not seeing or understanding. We learn to breathe more deeply and move a little more consciously so as to observe more of what we are experiencing. And in that moment, we understand that we were missing so much before. It’s never too late to savor each moment. It’s never too late to appreciate all that you find. That is the beauty of growing older.”

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?”
