Hi I am Matteo, your guest blogger for today...
Since my mom still needs to rest her finger
she thought it would be good for me to post a blog and give her a break.
So first things first, I have been hanging out in her computer chair to keep her away from the computer because she is a tad addicted to it
and her finger hurts every time
she stays on too long.
My stealing her chair is not without worries as she has sat on me a couple of times
because I sorta blend into the black leather...
so now I sleep with one eye open.
She thought I could tell you how important it is
to chill out, relax and lead a balanced life-
something she is not very good at...
and if you blog and create art and have kids -
well you could probably use a lesson too.
Since I used to be homeless and lived on the streets of a big city and lost lots of my fur and spent all my time
hustling to stay alive -
well I know something about a balanced life.
So here are my top 8 tips for staying relaxed and in balance -
1. Gather all your favorite art supplies, books,
whatever makes you happy and
use and enjoy them.
2. In the Pacific Northwest this goes without saying -
the first very important lesson my mom learned
when she moved here.
3. Learn how to relax amidst a crisis -
here I am totally tangled up in my work...
but do I panic?
No sirreee, I just plop myself down
and take a chill pill and sort it out.
4. Learn who gives the best back rubs in your house and
firmly take advantage of it
even while he is in the middle of work -
the way I see it - you are doing him a favor
as everyone should know how to multitask.
5. Learn to nap whenever your body
tells you to.
6. Love your enemy and try to find the good in her -
even when she is pushy and invades your space
7. It is important to be open to new experiences
even if those things might pop in your face.
8. Keep in shape by trying new things.
phew that wore me out - time for a nap.
What wisdom have you learned from your pets
so I can tell my mom-
let's make a list...
