Everyone WANTS to BE HAPPY, right?
One would think. Yet every day someone encounters another someone who seems unhappy for whatever the reason may be. In turn, that unhappy person has the means to create unhappiness in every mammal they come in contact with. Why? WHY do we do this to one another? The answer to that question would take a year of individualized blogs. We aren't doing that. We are not in the field of psychology here at 2 Besties Biscuits. Rather, we prefer to live in a field of dandelion puffs in which we may randomly make superfluous WISHES.
Which brings us to the point of this blog and what we hope to be a month of mammals coming together to BE A HAPPY ACT OF KINDNESS FOR A FELLOW MAMMAL.
April is a month filled with at least three causes we, as mammal lovers, adore:
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month
National Pet Month (or the DAY, celebrated April 11)
Earth Day (celebrated April 22)
We aren't pageant girls wishing for world peace. We are just 2 real mammals with no singing or dancing talents to speak of collectively. We are mammals who choose to believe that random acts of kindness, regardless of their significance, will brighten another mammal's day. It's so simply. It takes very little effort. It takes very little time. It is 5 minutes of your life to bring joy to someone (canine or human...or both). Five.
One (JUST 1) act of kindness (or a HAPPY BARK, as we call them) per week for one year is only about 4 hours of your life.
WE ARE ASKING FOR A MONTH OF KINDNESS (we WANT the whole year but we are settling for the month of April). SO (TOPS) THAT'S LIKE 2 HOURS (if you do it every day).
My thinking is that if we can spend time on social media in November sharing what we are "thankful for", December encouraging others to "give for the holidays" and every month complaining about something.....why can't we spend April practicing those same concepts whilst interacting with REAL LIFE MAMMALS AND still share it on social media? Yes, that was a question....answer it to yourself now.
Do you know how much time we spend as humans doing things that are unproductive every year? Fellas, I am going to start with you because this factual info makes me LMAO. Dudes spend 11 months of their lifespan staring at women. (I'm crying right now) Think of all of the happiness they could bring to those women with a compliment (of the non-creepy variety), holding a door...the list goes on. Don't be upset, gentlemen, it's time to address what I have to assume is mostly directly at the ladies. 5 months of a lifespan worth of complaining. Come on, girls, we all do it. I know a lot of men that fall into this category as well...but it's mostly women. Just THINK of all the joy we could bring if we would complain whilst plotting our next act of kindness. Yes, I said WHILE. Let's not be unrealistic here.....we aren't going to stop complaining. I, personally, require it (I call it "venting"......it's not even ungrateful it's just more for "fun" and, perhaps, sometimes so I don't have to obtain a lawyer). It's OK. Really. I said so. And guys, you keep on looking at chics, really!
Just attempt to spread some happiness whilst doing so. OH and we ALL spend 11 years of our life watching TV. I say we plot our "spreading of the happy" during commercials. Seems more productive. Don't fast forward through them- PLOT through them. 5 minutes. FIVE.
We TEXT 100+ per day. Why not make ONE of those a smile maker to someone in
