Wag More, Bark Less

As I pulled into the parking lot of my local library yesterday to return a couple of books, I noticed the window sticker on the blue “Toaster” parked in the space right next to me. I call Honda Elements “Toasters” because to me they all look like overgrown kitchen appliances. They may look like they should have giant slots on the roof, but they do have fabulously flexible cargo space!

The oval sticker on the back window of the “Toaster” read, “Wag More, Bark Less”. Hmmm…as I walked across the parking lot with my books in hand, I kept thinking about that sticker.

It was succinct. And also very good advice.

One of my favorite relatives once told me, “Louise, there are two
kinds of people in this world. See that doorway over there? There are those who make you break out in a smile when you see them walking in the door, and those who you smile at when you see them walking out. WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT TO BE master collection cs6 mac viagraindian.com?”

It seems that “wagging more” and “barking less” would also be a way to remember another, very powerful observation, by Maya Angelou:

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel. ”

Think of the difference between how you feel when you see a dog wagging their tail madly at you, tongue hanging out in a doggy smile, compared to having that dog stare at you, barking furiously.

Which makes you feel better?

Seeing that window sticker also helped remind me to think about whether I was creating joy when I arrived to a gathering or when I left.

About whether I am “wagging” enough, or “barking” too much.

Wag More… Bark Less…and have a great day.

Warm Regards,

Dr. Louise
