Have You Been Trodden On?

Last Update: April 14, 2019

I'd like to introduce you to our Irish Wolfhound Murphy. Due to Murphy's inherent nature, sheer physical size and his upbringing Murphy doesn't move for anyone.

He has never been trodden on and he doesn't believe he ever will be. His is quite confident in his assertion that this will never happen - because it never has. That's a baby Murphy before he turned into an 85kg speed bump.

Murphy will lay directly in front of doorways, in walkways and hallways and generally anywhere he pleases. And we keep walking around him!

It is easy for Murphy to maintain his attitude, because he does not know what it is to be downtrodden.

Some of you may have found your way here to WA feel a little downtrodden.

Perhaps life hasn't dealt you the hand you expected, perhaps at times it has been down right cruel.

Perhaps you have been told you are a failure, or that you will not amount too much and to settle and be happy with your mediocre lot in life.

It is hard to maintain a sense of expectation that things will be OK. That you can make a go of this affiliate marketing thing and that you do deserve more than you currently have when you have been constantly trodden on.

I understand when you have been put down so many times that you start to doubt your own abilities.

Know that the past is the past and it does no good to keep dragging it into the present. If you have been trodden on in your life in the past leave it there, do not keep sabotaging your future by dragging it with you.

Take a leaf out of Murphy's book, expect the best and keep an air about you that says "you will never be trodden on again".

Heidi thanks for that post.
Sure, trodden down is what all of us in WA one way or the other have seen.
But with hard work and determinations that will soon be a thing of the past!
Cheers.

I like Murphy. He knows what he wants and how to get it. I think we would get on just fine!

Oh he certainly does know what he wants and how to get it lol. He can't possibly move if you ask him but get out a treat and he's off like a shot!

Fortunately, my fate has been pretty much like Murphy, as I haven't been trodden on.

Thx for that msg Heidi. We can all take a few tips from Murphy! I believe that starting to think positively is half the problem of poor people. They tend to concentrate so much on there negative situation that that's where they stay. So if u catch yourself being negative, like I did this morning; you can change ur situation of having no money to one of having plenty. I'm reading an amazing book called "Never In Yor Wildest Dreams" all about turning negative lives into positive dreams. And it's exactly what I was doing. I also want to help as many people as I can. If I can just help 1 person become more positive and know how much God loved them, I'm a happy person for that day. Which is why I send positive good morning msgs to my friends and family every morning on whatsapp. When I get affirmations back, it's amazing what it does to my day. To whoever is reading this, try it. Or when you walk in the street or shopping mall, just smile at someone. It'll make there day and they will wander what you've been up to to make you so happy. Let's make a difference in a small way in someone's life starting today.

I agree wholeheartedly Sharon, smile and the world smiles with you :) I do it when I go to the city, people get a funny look on their faces when you smile at them in a busy shopping centre or in the mall, but I think it does help to lighten their day.

Very definitely and a smile brightens my day too. When I smile at someone, I usually get a smile back. That makes us both feel good.

Murphy is a con artist just like our Basset hounds.

Ohh Tom how gorgeous are they!!

I think I should have just done a post about show us your pets. I use to be a vet nurse before going into Local Government, and my heart is still really in animals.

So anyone else who is reading please do post your pet pics, I'd love to see them :)

I had to call my husband over to see this photo! Our con artist is half Basset, half Blue Heeler. And I was thinking of her as I read the article!

They look like great mates Rosana.

I love watching ours play, except Murphy is a bit too big for the poodle these days, and his gentle ruff and tumble can be injury causing!

I use to rehab native animals too lol. Usually sugar gliders or mutton birds. Have never had a kangaroo, would like to get back into that someday.

Half Basset and cattle dog. What a combination. I can see the tail is basset and head is half and half. Cattle dog ears trying to droop like a basset. Colour is half and half.
Both were begging when we were at a dog show while we were having lunch and the show photographer took the photo of our two Australian champions.
