Meow, meow, meow!
At this very moment, my 11 pound cat is meowing insistently at my back glass door. He does this when he wants more food. Oh, mind you, we feed our cat plenty for his daily requirements but he insists that he needs more! I usually end up giving in to his persistent spirit. Why? Probably because his bellowing is very distracting and a bit annoying.
What is my point you ask? I admire the cat for speaking up for what he wants and being persistent about it. If you have something on your mind that you feel strongly about, you should say it to whomever you need to convey that message to. I am not advocating complaining or whining or speaking unkind words. I am referring to holding words in that keep us from being at peace with ourselves.
There are a lot of lessons we can learn from animals and children, because they don’t hold back. They let us know what they want, what they like, and they are very clear about it. I wonder if there is something in your heart that you long to be heard? I encourage you to speak it!
