What Do You Do When the Going Gets Tough?
It’s a personal story today. A year or so ago I had to very sadly have an 11/12-month-old Bull Terrier puppy called Thud put down. He unfortunately had a kidney disease and in the end just stopped eating and drinking, so it was the only thing we could do for him, and it was a tough time!
It has taken quite a bit of courage for me to even think about getting another one. I had a lot of worries going around my head, such as; “Is it ok with my husband to get another puppy?”, “Should I get an older dog?”, “What will the cat think?” (although she was always in charge of Thud!) and “Could I cope with another loss if the worst happened again?”
In the end, it got to a point where I was just feeling sad and not getting anything done, so I asked myself: “How important is it to you to have another puppy Bridget?” And the answer was – very important!
It was at this point that I had an inkling to look on Gum Tree to see what puppies were nearby, and guess what! There was a litter of Bull Terrier puppies about 20 miles away. I rang up that day and found out they had 2 left. I went to visit and put a deposit down that day!
Watch the video below and you’ll see the end results of me pushing through this tough time, and memory of the negative past events, and deciding what was important to me. Then answer the question below!
I guess the question that I’d like you to think about today is “What do you do when the going gets tough?”
Do you procrastinate? Ask friends? Have sleepless nights? Or other unhelpful things? Or do you ask yourself “Is this important to me”? And then just push through and get what you want?
Here’s an important thing to remember whenever you are faced with a tough decision – Often, just before a break through, the going does get tough!
