A positive inauguration for any dog beast.

                                    Dog Shaming became an online craze in 2013. It acted as a fun way for exasperated owners to showcase their pet’s embarrassing behaviour to the world, whilst connecting them with millions of like minded dog fans. Although most owners no doubt secretly adore their pet’s eccentricities, Dog Shaming (and its other versions) is a revealing insight into the arbitrary world of animal behavior.

                                    18. Exotic Animals

                                      If you’re thinking of making a home for an exotic pet, or if you need to re-home your hedgehog/bush baby/bobcat/blue whale, then Exotic Animals For Sale is for you.

                                        It may seem obvious, but Wikipedia is packed full of fundamental advice. As each page is edited individually, you’ll find information on pets from fellow enthusiasts, along with links to suitable websites. For instance, if you’d like a pet snake, you’ll find, “They require minimal space, as most common species do not exceed five feet (1.5 m) in length. Pet snakes can be fed relatively infrequently, usually once every 5 to 14 days”.

                                        20. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

                                          5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

                                          5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

                                          When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

                                          “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

                                          You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

                                          Advertising

                                          Why should you always be yourself?

                                          Because you will:

                                          1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
                                          2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
                                          3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
                                          4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
                                          5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

                                          No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
