Here's me taking a peek look through a chair's armrest. One thing for sure is that everything sure do look different from this side down.This has sparked me to make a long note of it! LOL~

When you're down and looking upward, things just seem to look so far and difficult to reach. I remember where I was younger and my feet were all short and tiny. Just trying to reach upward to a chair was such challenge. Sometimes I get so tired of trying that I told myself, why bother even to try!

Yet I could not help it. It's just that deep within me, I  know and I know that I can get there despite limitations. It's deep within me that I found that power and strength to keep trying to reach upward as I could see myself up there on that chair!.With this in mind, this power that is at work within me spurr me to want to keep trying and trying to get there. In every of my attempts, I now I'm getting closer and closer there. There are times when I feel I have got up to there but slipped and down I go again, I tell myself that I am just getting closer and closer to reaching at the top.

Slowly as it seem but surely I will get there. Did I finally get up to the chair? YES! Now, I can jump up to the sofa, grandpa's bed and any chair and sometimes on tables too! Mommy doesn't find that amusing though = =
Did my legs grew very long? No! Mommy say are my legs are still short..hahaha

Anyway, I realized that perception are important as it influences my thinking pattern and dictates my actions. Though physically  I have limitations..short legs but realized that I never looked at it as a limitation. All I could see in my mind was me sitting on that chair! All I could see was me getting on grandpa's bed and ensure that he gets his goodnight kiss from me!

The right perception is where I should keep seeing myself at the ending of every goal or dream and then begin to outwork it from there to where I am now. Besides when I'm on that chair looking downwards, the floor is not that far reach anyway ^^

To see a glass as half full or half empty is determined by one's perception!

hey Jon Terry,

What a wise puppy you are! Such a great post! Your woofs are so inspiring and they especially touched my human, K. Thank you for reminding us that we should never lose sight of our dreams, and with even just a tiny bit of Faith we can move mountains. Or in your case, reach table tops! :->

Hi Jon Terry

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I loved your post because I believe that visualising your goals is the most important step in making them happen.

I visualise lost of naps on comfy dogs beds, two nice meals a day and a good walk every morning and afternoon - and it keeps happening!! Magic!!!
