Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places, and sometimes you find it in moments of profound sadness. Today was one of those days…
With great sadness, my wife and I put our dog Duke down today. Both of us are huge animal lovers and dogs have always held a special place in our hearts and played important roles in our lives. I’ve made sure that 3Eye is a pet friendly office as I know the joy that animals can bring. Sometimes work can be tough, stressful, tiring, and monotonous. Looking over to see a loyal companion can bring a spark to your day, a smile to your face, perspective to your outlook.
As I reflected on Duke’s time with us, I kept remarking how he put his heart and soul into everything he did…in such a BIG way. Over the years, I had many dogs, all unique, but none who lived with as much zest and passion as Duke. He had a big personality and an even bigger heart. As I have been grieving our loss, I’ve tried to draw inspiration from it, and here’s the lesson I’ve learned: whatever you do, put some love into it.
Put some love into your work, put some love into your relationships, both today and every day. You will be rewarded richly when you do.
