Motivational Monday: Mistaken Identity or Blissfully Happy?

 

Do you know anyone extremely comfortable in their own skin, no doubts about who they are and where they're going in life? Having neither to prove themselves nor justify their beliefs?

Who are:

  • confident
  • self-assured
  • happy go lucky

 

I have. And realize that means accepting yourself, your relationships, your outlook from within. It also means possessing the knowledge that not everyone else needs to follow the same life path. 

 

I learned something important  from observing this pair. They are happy with their circumstances, are constant companions and satisfied with their direction. Is it important the piglet learn he is a pig? No. Just as it isn't prudent to convince the dog she is not the piglet's mother.

 

Motivational Monday: Mistaken Identity or Blissfully happy?

 

These two prove that mistaken identity can be blissful because they're happy where they're headed! Are you?!

I am absolutely happy in my own skin...life is too short to buy into all the drama, hatred, disgust, unhappiness, etc. from people around you. I run from them and continue to have a wonderful life...love the piglet and dog!!

Interesting photo. It shows that the environment you are raised in has a huge impact on who/what you think you are.

Good thing the pig doesn't know the bacon factory is in his future! I know that isn't quite what this post is about and I am happy with who I am.

That's fantastic, Wanda.  But, why teach the dog she is not the piglet's mother?  They don't have to be related to be family or to learn from each other, right?  :)

I love the picture. I have a Cockatoo and 3 small dogs. They all play together on the floor and my cockatoo walks around on everything. One day she was on the couch and my chihuahua was sleeping right by me. The bird walked over him on his head, he opened one eye and just looked at her. He doesnt think of her as a bird who he should chase but as a friend that he plays with.

Paula, I completely agree!

Suzanne, I prefer to be happy as well. I leave the other stuff to people who are good at it.

Than, Yes, I think it does and this proves it!

Rob, Glad you are happy with you!

Thanks Cal, It does start within. Have a wonderful week!

I appreciate that Sheila and was impressed and inspired with these two!

Chris, They are each other's mirrored image. I wish more people could be as accepting regarding differences.

Heather, No reason to teach either of them. That is the point of my story...unconditional acceptance.

I love your story Pamela! That makes me s-m-i-l-e!

Hi Wanda,

I love this picture. You hear all the time about dogs adopting kittens or cats adopting puppies but I have never heard of a dog adopting a piglet. They look so cute together. Isn't mother nature wonderful how she teaches her animals to accept one another no matter how they look. Great post Wanda.

Wanda,

This is an excellent Motivational Monday post! As you demonstrated, people can learn a lot about being a part of a loving and caring community without prejudice. In this photo of yours, the follower is just as important as the leader.
