Mental Health Mantra 63/365 and Dog Mantra
This is Kao.
He is the love of Linda's life, her soul dog.
He emits love from every pore/paw.
They found each other almost 14 years ago. Her friend had his father, Zeek, a loyal, loving and gentle dog - he was the first pick of the litter.
Kao has been by Linda's side since that puppy pic, through breakups, moves and her Parents death.
He loved her even when she had trouble loving herself.
He listens intently and knows what she is saying, even when she says nothing.
He snores and farts regularly, always waits to be invited up to the sofa and will grunt at her until she says yes.
He loves running but sometimes doesn't know how to stop.
He wiggles with abandon and will show his toys to anyone who comes to visit.
Kao is Linda's love. Her Soul Dog.
and even though she hasn't gone to the bathroom by herself in 14 years, she would not change a thing.
Kao's Dog Mantra is "I know you are worthy."
To remind us all that we are worthy. Right now. Right here.
I adored painting Kao, he has such a wise knowing that was nudging me forward - I could feel my inner critic come in and tell me what I was doing wrong, trying to steer me in certain directions.
I told Inner Critic to PIPE DOWN.
I continued with my hypnotic painting of Kao and feel honoured to have spent this time with him.
Keep feeling worthy Star Seeds.
Listen to Kao.
