Homeless Dog Waited For Air Hostess Day And Night, Finally She Made An Amazing Decision

Homeless Dog Waited For Air Hostess Day And Night, Finally She Made An Amazing Decision

Best friends will do anything for you, but would they wait patiently day after day, for months while you’re half way around the world? This heartwarming love story between a stray dog in Argentina and an air hostess from Germany shows that distance means nothing when it comes to true love and friendship.

Love At First Sight

Olivia Siever’s work as a flight attendant took her to Argentina on several occasions. On one such occasion, she met a new furry friend, while exploring the area around her hotel in Buenos Aires. The dog was known to frequent the area and Olivia decided to make his day by playing and giving him some food; a decision that clearly touched the dog’s heart.

    Loyalty And Love Go Hand In Hand

    From that moment on, the loyal pooch, who she named Rubio, didn’t leave her side. He followed her back to the hotel despite her attempts to shake him off and he sat longingly outside the hotel entrance waiting for Olivia to come back out.

    Taking pity on him, Olivia gave him an airline blanket to help keep him warm on the cold streets knowing that she would soon have to leave him and return home to Germany.

      Friends Reunited

      The two parted ways, with Rubio again roaming the streets of Buenos Aires, but never forgetting his new friend. When Olivia returned back some time later, she wondered about Rubio and what became of him. However, she didn’t have to wonder for too long. After arriving at the same hotel as before, to her amazement, there sitting outside the front door of the hotel was none other than Rubio waiting to greet her with a wagging tail.

        Loving And Leaving

        Over the next months, Olivia had to leave Rubio over and over again with each goodbye becoming harder and harder. The two had formed a strong bond and becoming worried about his safety, she arranged for Rubio to be taken into a dog shelter in the hopes he would find a loving home. But Rubio escaped and turned up back at the hotel entrance – there was only one owner he wanted.

          Home Sweet Home

          That was enough for Olivia – the love had blossomed between the two of them and she made the decision to fill out the official paperwork needed to take him home to Germany with her – a decision that would change his life forever. Rubio is now settled in his happy new home with the streets of Argentina firmly behind him!

            Love Persists

            Rubio had experienced love at first sight all those months ago and has shown that loyalty and persistence pay off in the end. It seems true love was worth the wait.

              5 Rules for Overcoming Adversity and Emotional Pain

              5 Rules for Overcoming Adversity and Emotional Pain

              “Some people choose to see the ugliness in this world, the disarray. I choose to see the beauty. To believe there is an order to our days. A purpose.” – from the popular show, “Westworld”

              It’s different for us all. My personal quest for purpose began with five stages of grief and one startling realization that everything’s endlessly fragile. Adversity, as it happens by rule, found me terribly unprepared, so I decided to take my time. Today, I can honestly say that I’ve grown.

              Ugliness and beauty, good and evil, pain and laughter – everything in the universe consists of two forces that are opposing but complementary. In the face of difficulty, that is the only mantra you need.

              Here’s how I learned it and why you should too, with five simple rules.

              Advertising

              1. Embrace the Complexity

              Quite insidiously, adversities come in all shapes and sizes. Paralyzing physical disabilities, mind-wracking mental problems, ruthless emotional havocs, all leading to the same painful acknowledgement: all the beauty in the world cannot possibly make up for the ugliness that surrounds us. Shattered to pieces, helpless and bare naked, we sit in our therapy chairs, apologizing for being so negative.

              Eventually, what it all comes down to is the nature of negative emotion. Our positives overshadow our negatives, thus wrongly teaching us that the road to well-being is paved with nothing but positive feelings and thoughts. How utterly wrong!

              “If you’re not failing every now and then, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything innovative”, Woody Allen said.

              It’s a classic “learn from your mistakes” rule, but in this case, it implies growing from negative experiences. Make peace with your negativities and embrace beauty and ugliness alike! Accepting this marvellously complex world just as it is will allow you to find purpose in adversity and meaning in misery.

              2. Find Balance, Regain Control

              Still, accepting adversity is only the first step toward eventual victory. One can endure only so much trauma in life; if we’re not prepared to deal with difficulties in a productive way, even the minor setbacks can get us off track. Our strengths come from learning, and the best way to learn is through a series of trials and errors. Just like phases of grief or stages of drug addiction, adversities suggest a disabling loss of control, so find your way to regain it.

              Some call it the coping mechanism; for others, it’s a spiritual will. However you choose to name yours, know that not all supporting systems are equally beneficial, though each is effective in its own way. Escapism was mine, but it only helped me retain the illusion of beauty. It wasn’t until I opened up toward the ugliness and accepted the naked truth that I was finally free. Whether you choose to dwell in art, religion and spiritualism, thus feeding your resilience from within or to reach out to others for help, choose wisely.

              Whatever the means, the second rule is a golden one: find your inner balance and stick to it. Eventually, it will lead you out of the vicious circle.

              3. Fight with Patience

              My bargaining turned in depression with a single touch. Fearless and free, my dance instructor timidly put her hands on my shoulders and I realized, for the first time, just how tense, stiff and cloistered I was. And just like that, I started letting go. Adversities have their sneaky ways, but in my experience, becoming aware is what hurts the worst. It took me a year to recover from this little moment of self-discovery, and I know remember it as the edge of the rabbit hole.

              Some sufferings are impossible to console; I know that now. The only way to get through is to, well, get through. Depression and despair are only the beginning of the excruciatingly unnerving process that ravages the mind and shrivels the soul, and once they strike, there is no easy way back. So, fight them with patience. When your head starts spinning and your feet lose ground, go to your happy place. Over there, you’ll be reminded that nothing is forever, not even our little existential psychosis.

              Take a deep breath and say “om”. When things cannot be combated, they have to be endured, so practice patience and learn to let go. Finally, keep repeating to yourself that this too shall pass.

              4. Keep Swimming

              Nothing is impossible, in the end. Your negative thoughts will gently pour into your positive ones, just as two streams come together to become a river. In the event of the inevitable disaster, one can only be as calm as still water. Suffering teaches patience, and the latter gives rise to flexibility. Ultimately, what is life than a series of unfortunate events and a handful of bright moments in between? If adversities are impossible to avoid, than learn to glide through as smoothly and patiently as water does with rocks.

              Even if spirituality isn’t exactly your cup of tea, you have to admit that this is one solid metaphor. Staying adaptable in the face of change will soothe your panic attacks and keep you sane and sober-blooded. Even if you fail, you’ll know exactly how to breathe and face what’s in front of you once it eventually strikes again. Stay calm and visualize a better tomorrow; if anything else, it will give you strength to dive deep and weather the storm. And, in case there’s somebody’s hand to reach out to, grab it firmly and don’t let go.

              Advertising

              Being flexible against adversities takes a lot of learning, just as staying brave demands a lot of courage. It’s a long, arduous step-by-step routine, and you can reach the end only by swimming on. Persist, even when you fall.

              5. Never Stop Searching for Inspiration

              And, if it’s a guidance you need, where else to seek it than in experiences of others? Find it in art, in people around you, in chance encounters. The pure beauty of perseverance can be discovered where you expect it the least, so never stop searching for inspiration. If self-help literature soothes your pains and clears your mind, don’t let cynics discourage you. Your path toward reconciliation is nobody’s but yours to choose.

              Ever heard of Nick Vujicic? Or Nando Parado? Inspiring people sound their yawps over the roofs of the world, sometimes voiceless, sometimes limbless, sometimes both. Born without arms, Jessica Cox became the most unusual certified pilot in the world, and you can rarely see her without a smile on her face. If you’ve already ripped all of your bucket lists and said goodbye to your dreams and plans, meet Sean Swarner, who’s officially became the first cancer survivor to climb Mount Everest. The stories just go on.

              Make your own guidebook! Pen down your positive thoughts, cover your walls with quotes and devise your personal mantras. Whenever things get hard, they’ll be there to remind you of what you need to do. It’s the simplest of all life hacks, and one of the most effective ones.

              Find beauty in the world, but never stay blind for its ugliness. However daunting, adversities and emotional pain challenge our inner strength, thus making us resilient and allowing us to grow. As soon as you recognize them as the wind in your sails instead of the devastating storm, the purpose will become simple and clear.
