Our Thoughts are a Mirror…..

Our thoughts are a perfect reflection of our state of mind and how we feel about ourselves on the inside. Resentment towards another, such as an ex-, reveals a resentment of ourselves: we resent how we allowed ourselves to be deceived, hurt or heartbroken. Anger towards another, like a rival or business opponent, is derived from anger with ourselves: rooted in jealousy, fear, and a sense of insecurity with who we are, questioning our ability to aptly compete.

sunset withinOur thoughts reflect perfectly like a mirror to reveal the inner workings of ourselves; the subconscious perceptions that we hold about our individual senses of Self and all of those around us. The mirror-like nature of our thinking is not only beneficial insofar as it reveals how we really feel on the inside; it also allows us to become more self-aware and introspective.

It is a gift, indeed, because understanding our thought-processes and how they reflect our individual understandings of who we are on in the inside provides the unique opportunity to become better people. Ultimately, we can diffuse inner conflict and confusion and become pacifists of the mind.

Thanksgiving Leftovers that are Dog Friendly!

Turkey, Pie, & Stomach Aches, OH MY!
Dogs wait all year for the smell of turkey on Thanksgiving. During the holidays we want to give our BFFs a special treat, but what’s safe and how much is too much?
Here’s  some Do’s and Don’ts adapted from PetMD – read the full list HERE.
1. Turkey gets the green light 
The worst side effect of eating turkey for humans is sleepiness. But if it isn’t done right, turkey can make canines sick. White meat turkey is a LEAN PROTEIN, which is great! Just make sure to get rid of the fat and skin and NO TURKEY BONES.
2. No Alliums
Alliums are delicious to people, but toxic for dogs. So absolutely no garlic, onions, scallions, or leeks!
3. Pawtatoes, yum
As long as your mashed potato are free of alliums and sour cream, feel free to give your dog a tiny potato treat.
4. No Grapes, but go cranberry crazy
Some cranberry sauces are too sugary for dogs, so be careful when you let you dog lick this T-day staple off your plate.
5. Save the good stuff for your human friends 
Chocolate and alcohol should be reserved for people only. While T-day desserts and drinks are delicious, they can be deadly for dogs!

Happy Thanksgiving from Cocojor!


What is it about the beautiful people in your life that makes you inspired? 

On the day of thanks, we should all take the time to think about what inspires us, and how we inspire others.

For some of us, inspiration starts with a new thought or feeling.
Feeling uplifted helps us gain a new insight that has the possibility to change our perspectives completely.

 Learn something new and you will be forever transformed.

We all have something to teach and something to learn. Embrace your inner guide and know that you have something very valuable to offer everyone around you. When we share our experiences with others, we receive wisdom, joy, and love in return.
