These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

These 30 Animal Parents with their New-born Babies in the Wild Will Show You How Precious Life Is

As Charles Darwin described in his study about the existence and nature of emotions as expressed both by humans and animals, emotions are a natural part of the living creatures. Although there might be some slight differences between emotions of animals and humans, yet, they are quite similar. Both of these creatures have distinguished emotional patterns like anger, disgust, fear, happiness, sadness, and even surprise. With that, it is not far from reality that animals when they become parents, also become loving towards their babies. They express similar emotions and at the same time do similar things as the humans do to give whatever their babies need. This is also one way to show that they care for their young.

Here are some of the most touching photos of newborn animals in the wild which clearly express that animals, too, can show how tender and caring they are as mothers and fathers to their babies. Let these photos inspire you and show you how precious life is.

1. Mother monkey gets Caesarian

Painful as it sounds, but yes, the mother monkey just got her Caesarian to give birth to her baby monkey. This is quite a maternal sacrifice!

    2. The Canada goslings follow their mama goose

    Really cute! These goslings are following their mother goose in search for food. While doing so, they swim together in line (to avoid being lost).

      3. The Capybara swims with her newborn

      One of the cutest feature of a Capybara is that they really are persistent in terms of teaching some values to their young. You can see this in this picture of these baby Capybaras learning to swim together with their mom.

          Obedience is one of the keys to life’s success. In order for this baby hippo to learn the basics of life, he needs to obey what his mom asks him to do. As seen in this photo, this baby follows wherever his mom will go.

              Just like the human moms, this lioness carefully brings her cub to the distinct places in the jungle. It’s somehow scary to look at, but that’s how they normally carry their babies – by mouth!

                  Life is harsh. Well, it is. Just like this baby crocodile, when it was hatched, his mom’s presence is absent. Although life sucks, still life should go on and be lived.

                                                              5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

                                                              5 Smart Reasons to Start Journal Writing Today

                                                              Here’s the truth: your effectiveness at life is not what it could be. You’re missing out.

                                                              Each day passes by and you have nothing to prove that it even happened. Did you achieve something? Go on a date? Have an emotional breakthrough? Who knows?

                                                              But what you do know is that you don’t want to make the same mistakes that you’ve made in the past.

                                                              Our lives are full of hidden gems of knowledge and insight, and the most recent events in our lives contain the most useful gems of all. Do you know why? It’s simple, those hidden lessons are the most up to date, meaning they have the largest impact on what we’re doing right now.

                                                              But the question is, how do you get those lessons? There’s a simple way to do it, and it doesn’t involve time machines:

                                                              Journal writing.

                                                              Improved mental clarity, the ability to see our lives in the big picture, as well as serving as a piece of evidence cataloguing every success we’ve ever had; we are provided all of the above and more by doing some journal writing.

                                                              Journal writing is a useful and flexible tool to help shed light on achieving your goals.

                                                              Here’s 5 smart reasons why you should do journal writing:

                                                              1. Journals Help You Have a Better Connection with Your Values, Emotions, and Goals

                                                              By journaling about what you believe in, why you believe it, how you feel, and what your goals are, you understand your relationships with these things better. This is because you must sort through the mental clutter and provide details on why you do what you do and feel what you feel.

                                                              Consider this:

                                                              Perhaps you’ve spent the last year or so working at a job you don’t like. It would be easy to just suck it up and keep working with your head down, going on as if it’s supposed to be normal to not like your job. Nobody else is complaining, so why should you, right?

                                                              Advertising

                                                              But a little journal writing will set things straight for you. You don’t like your job. You feel like it’s robbing you of happiness and satisfaction, and you don’t see yourself better there in the future.

                                                              The other workers? Maybe they don’t know, maybe they don’t care. But you do, you know and care enough to do something about it. And you’re capable of fixing this problem because your journal writing allows you to finally be honest with yourself about it.

                                                              2. Journals Improve Mental Clarity and Help Improve Your Focus

                                                              If there’s one thing journal writing is good for, it’s clearing the mental clutter.

                                                              How does it work? Simply, whenever you have a problem and write about it in a journal, you transfer the problem from your head to the paper. This empties the mind, allowing allocation of precious resources to problem-solving rather than problem-storing.

                                                              Let’s say you’ve been juggling several tasks at work. You’ve got data entry, testing, e-mails, problems with the boss, and so on—enough to overwhelm you—but as you start journal writing, things become clearer and easier to understand: Data entry can actually wait till Thursday; Bill kindly offered earlier to do my testing; For e-mails, I can check them now; the boss is just upset because Becky called in sick, etc.

                                                              You become better able to focus and reason your tasks out, and this is an indispensable and useful skill to have.

                                                              3. Journals Improve Insight and Understanding

                                                              As a positive consequence of improving your mental clarity, you become more open to insights you may have missed before. As you write your notes out, you’re essentially having a dialogue with yourself. This draws out insights that you would have missed otherwise; it’s almost as if two people are working together to better understand each other. This kind of insight is only available to the person who has taken the time to connect with and understand themselves in the form of writing.

                                                              Once you’ve gotten a few entries written down, new insights can be gleaned from reading over them. What themes do you see in your life? Do you keep switching goals halfway through? Are you constantly dating the same type of people who aren’t good for you? Have you slowly but surely pushed people out of your life for fear of being hurt?

                                                              All of these questions can be answered by simply self-reflecting, but you can only discover the answers if you’ve captured them in writing. These questions are going to be tough to answer without a journal of your actions and experiences.

                                                              Life happens, and it can happen fast. Sometimes we don’t take the time to stop and look around at what’s happening to us at each moment. We don’t get to see the step-by-step progress that we’re making in our own lives. So what happens? One day it’s the future, and you have no idea how you’ve gotten there.

                                                              Journal writing allows you to see how you’ve changed over time, so you can see where you did things right, and you can see where you took a misstep and fell.

                                                              The great thing about journals is that you’ll know what that misstep was, and you can make sure it doesn’t happen again—all because you made sure to log it, allowing yourself to learn from your mistakes.

                                                              The best thing about journal writing is that no matter what you end up writing about, it’s hard to not grow from it. You can’t just look at a past entry in which you acted shamefully and say “that was dumb, anyway!” No, we say “I will never make a dumb choice like that again!”

                                                              It’s impossible not to grow when it comes to journal writing. That’s what makes journal writing such a powerful tool, whether it’s about achieving goals, becoming a better person, or just general personal-development. No matter what you use it for, you’ll eventually see yourself growing as a person.

                                                              Know the answer? Then it’s about time you reap the benefits of journal writing and start putting pen to paper.
