Oh Dog! DeDe here with another tip to make you look and feel your best!
Today’s tip: Don’t let your feelings control your life!
You were born with the ability to feel things. That was no mistake; there is a reason for your feelings.
But that reason was NOT to run your life.
When Jen is doling out treats and Rumpy takes mine, I get mad. But how many times have you seen a dog still mad hours later? Almost never!
Why is that? I choose to not run the incident over and over in my head. I am focused on what’s in front of me now.
Life events will happen that evoke certain feelings. You will feel angry. You will feel sad. That is normal.
Dwelling on those feelings is a choice. You can just as easily choose to focus your attention elsewhere.
People who stay angry are not attractive. And if you DO find those people attractive, perhaps you need to ask yourself why. But that’s another post.
So the next time someone cuts you off in traffic, feel the anger. Then choose to focus on something else. The kid in the car in front of you that’s throwing around cereal. A soothing song on the radio. Plans you have for later in the day. You’d be amazed how much better you’ll feel- and look!
And never leave home without this essential beauty product- a smile!

Bubba does look like a bit of a bed hog, and Rumpy’s love of treats – well, we won’t even go there…. But YES, DeDe, letting it go and moving on is always the best approach.
Love and licks,
Cupcake, Bubba is my best friend but he can get in the way at times. And Rumpy? Oh DOG!
I definitely needed this this morning. Thank you 🙂
Yay! I’m glad I could help! -Love, DeDe
Thank yoooowooowooooo DeDe!
Great advices DeDe… something I need to remember sometimes!
Great advice!xx Speedy
Grrrrrreat advice fur life.
I agree no one is attractive who looks like one of the Angry Birds! Have a great Sunday dear DeDe and thanks for your advice :o)
Whenever I feel tired, angry, sad and the other negative feelings, I look at doggies and kitties pictures on the albums or on webs that make me forget annoying things because of their cuteness! You’re very true DeDe, if we focuse on the other things which makes you happy, our bad feeling easily goes somewhere else!
Have a lovely Sunday! 🙂
Great job, as always, DeDe! You are so wise, and this is something that we’ll try to remember — today and always!
My mom tries to live life like a dog and just be in the moment but she says it is difficult for humans. Good advice, though.
Good job Dede and you are so right.,
Thanks Mario! BOL!
We knowing a hooman who staying angry. She says she very spurritual purrson, but we begging to differ. We no liking her, and she no furriend. We just forgiving her for being such an angry hooman. Not for her, but because we no wanting any angry hooman to suck up Purrime Ministerette energies.
You got that right, Your Highnesses!
Excellencies it is.
DeDe you are a sweet dog and a very wise one. Thank you for the Beauty posts.
Oh Dog! Thanks BJ!
If all else fails think of puppies or kittens. 🙂
If only humans had the great power to forgive and forget that so many companion animals possess!
Excellent advice, DeDe. Don’t dwell on the negative and smile. I’ve been working on my Zen-like attitude and carry a tiny booklet, “Keep Calm and Carry On,” to remind me not to let the “little” things that bug me become “big” things.
My dog Maya is an excellent role model for how to always be happy. 🙂
Pet a cat! They absorb it and flick it out the end of their tail. Any animal who can sleep that much simply doesn’t carry baggage, so whatever you do, don’t put it in your suitcase!
Great advice. 🙂
DeDe you are again right..best to be cranky get it out of your system and move on…makes you happier and healthier 🙂 Big hugs Fozziemum x

DeDe The Wise. That’s the best tip ever, park the negative moods/emotions and get on with life. xoxo
Count to ten 🙂
Thank you, DeDe I needed to hear that today!
You always give the best advise, DeDe!!! xo
Excellent advice..if we lived in “the now” like dogs we’d be a lot happier…just what I needed to read right now 🙂 Knew there was a reason why it’s taken me so long to be able to get back to W/P!
This is why I feel that doggies are so much smarter than humans! You are an awesome guru, DeDe!!
