Lori had just lost a key account and was feeling ‘blue’. After a few days she began to bounce back with the help of an unlikely mentor. Her best friend Holly invited her over for dinner and she got to meet her new dog, Barney.
Lori related how difficult the past week had been and how she felt like she’d really let her boss down. Holly listened and then asked her friend to think of all the good things she had going for her.
‘Consider this,Lori……you or I could just have easily come into this world as Barney. You could have been burdened with teeth like his and a life expectancy of only ten years.’
Lori looked at Barney and had to laugh.
‘You’re so right….and his tail has not stopped wagging since I arrived.
Thanks Holly….and Barney….for helping me see that I’ve got nothing to complain about.’
