Animal Message of the Day: Nell

From Nell: “Life is about wholeness. We need to look at things from all sides and not just from one. Let me explain. I have one eye. I lost one eye. It all depends on which side of me you are standing on. You can stand and look at me and notice I have a gorgeous eye (and that would be true!) or if you happen to be on my other side, you could make the mistake to label me as a horse that is missing an eye, and then you’d feel sorry for me. I lost an eye. But I am not missing anything. I had a choice in my life to either live like I was half-blind, or to see more with what I have been gifted with. I chose the gift instead of the loss. Truth is, I’ve lived through lots of loss. It would make you sad to hear about it. It made me sad to live through it. And in the end, I lost an eye. But that is only half of the story. The other half is that I have a wonderful life where I am loved for being me. And I have found more light and joy and happiness through one eye than the darkness I lived in when I had two. Sometimes when you lose something, you realize how much more you actually gain. You need to look at life as a whole and not focus on single parts that don’t give you the whole picture.”

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?”
