I had no idea when I started listening to “The 5 Second Rule” that 9 days later my world would get turned upside down and I’d lose my sweet dog, Jayne. When I first started listening to your book, I openly wrote about how I knew it was going to change my life…I was so exited about it and the changes I was making in my life, I was getting up earlier, I was getting to the gym, I was getting things done even if I didn’t feel like doing them…I felt really great…I was up earlier in the mornings & taking my dog on a walk before going to the gym…I wasn’t hitting the snooze button anymore, I was taking care of business!! I had two days under my belt of establishing a morning routine and then suddenly that evening, out of the blue, my dog got gravely ill and early the next morning, we had to make a decision to let her go. From the moment my husband & I made the decision, to the drive to the vet to be there when they stopped her heart, to deciding to reach out & connect with a young couple in the waiting room who had just said goodbye to their dog, to the day spent sitting alone on the floor of our office telling friends & loved ones that we had to say goodbye to our goofy girl, to collecting all of her things around the house, to writing a letter to her Vet thanking him for being there for us all these years, to finding the desire to eat for the first few days or even get out of bed, I called upon The 5 Second Rule so many times, I can’t even count. Moment by moment, it helped me through this very difficult time and I am truly grateful. I somehow believe the Universe knew what was coming & sent me your book & this tool to assist me in grieving and to help me move on through my life. My sweet Jayne was with me for just over ten years, she was incredibly obstinate & incredibly loving, she slobbered all over the place & made my house filthy and now she has left an enormous hole in my heart. This loss has brought my husband & I even closer together and “The 5 Second Rule” has given me the courage to keep on moving!
