Experience


Life is experience.
Experience is the opportunity to interact with life.
We choose how we interact with the experience.

Opportunity:
[  Waking up each day
[  Being hungry
[  Hearing
[  Seeing
[  Tasting
[  Touching
[  Smelling

There are many ways to interact with opportunity. Our history, how we were raised and how we interacted with past opportunities will impact how we interact in the present.

Dash taught me this simple truth.
Dash came into our lives on December 21st, 2012. I asked for him to come, I needed him. Who he would be, what he would look like or how he would get to me, I left this for opportunity to figure out.

And it happened in perfect timing. Everything lined up to come to a result that was satisfactory to all involved. There was no money, bargaining or negotiating involved. It came about through the choices made with the opportunities that arose.

Dash is perfect for me. He is just what I wanted and exactly what I need.
This is what I have learned in the short time I've interacted with him.
