He was with me every second of the day.
He was my shadow for exactly 8 years.
He followed me around everywhere.
Even when I would go to the bathroom he would just wait outside the door.
He would place himself at the center of the living room to see which way I would be heading to next.
And he would just look me in the eyes, trying to guess what I would do.
Of course I was his second love, food was always his first. ????
But he was my first dog love and always will be.
His name was Tyson and I said goodbye to him this last Monday.
And I learned this…
Dog love is like human love. But purer. Closer to the universe. Closer to God, source, divinity. It is almost as if we are held by a force that is constant. We are seen, by two eyes that never let us go (Click to Tweet!)
My heart was not ready to feel what it felt last Monday.
A complete and utter break.
My eyes were gone.
The helding was over.
The physical extension of my soul vanished.
I always thought we were the ones rescuing him.
He was found in Puerto Rico as a puppy and was brought to Northern Mass where we found him at 3 months old.
We adopted him and got in the car to take him home.
Tyson was/is a chocolate lab and he sat on my lap, wrapped his paws around my right arm and squeezed me as he was shaking all the way home.
And now I know.
He came to rescue me.
To be by my side as I was trying to blend two families with not much success.
Founded my Institute, found my identity, my voice, my own path.
When he arrived in my life I had just started writing this blog.
Tyson I know you can hear me, thank you for being with me in my loneliest years.
In my discovery years.
My aftermath years.
And I know why you left when you did.
You believe I can do this on my own.
This new chapter. Without your gaze.
Say hi to Bjarne for me, he always wanted a chocolate lab.
And I will be seeing you…
With real devastating heartbreak for my dog Tyson,
PS. He left the day before we were going to release the pre-order campaign for my new book. So here I am doing this for the first time without him: ORDER HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Where-Did-You-Go-Life-Changing/dp/0062689622
