Every person that once meant the world to us leaves a footprint. We find ourselves reminded now and then, feeling this warm feeling of comfort or that horrible kind pain that makes it hard to breathe.
Some people choose to burry it, to let the bad times overshadow everything good or positive, to not look back instead of working through it.
I choose to celebrate how far I’ve come.
I will never delete a picture, not tell a story or stop wearing certain pieces just because someone I once loved is connected to it. I willingly choose the opposite, I choose to do all this things with pride, to celebrate my history and what made me who I am. The good and the very bad.
Our past makes us who we are and thats something we should be damn proud of 🖤
Guy Fawkes and Diwali are almost upon us. Despite the City of Cape Town's good intentions to limit fireworks, the reality is that there may still be fireworks set off. ⠀
Dog's and cat's sense of hearing is magnitudes more sensitive than ours meaning that fireworks and crackers are truly terrifying to them. Unfortunately, many pets sustain life threatening injuries whiles trying to escape from firework noise. It can engage their flight mode and they can get lost or injured.⠀
Please assure that all pets and animals are kept secured before, during and after fireworks. Sitting with your pets can assist in helping them keep calm. Animals experiencing fear can injury themselves in attempts to flee. It is best to keep your animals indoors.⠀
The importance of microchipping your pets cannot be understated! Protect your pet today by getting them microchipped. Microchipped cats are 20x more likely to be reunited with their families and microchipped dogs are 2.5x more likely to find their way home. A lost pet without a chip has a less than 10% chance of being returned to its owner. ⠀
