Finding new balance

Little Irviljish moved in today

Little Irviljish moved in today

Today a new little dog moved in with us here at the place where we’re dog- and house sitting in Flores. One of the  neighbors is going away and her dog is staying with us the remaining weeks until we leave the island.

It’s always a bit of a challenge to find balance in a new setting, no matter if it’s a new place, a person coming to visit or adapting to a new member of the pack.

In this case, the dogs know each other but we’ve only had one of them with us and the whole constellation is new. So, as humans, we need to figure the little one out and see how things changes when having the two dogs together. For little Irviljish it’s new to be with us and she needs to find out what we’re like.

Now, we’re lucky to have the dogs help us highlight what’s happening in most constellations – when a place, a team member or conditions change, there’s a shift happening. The balance is lost for a short period before everything falls into place again. We often talk about finding ones role in a group, seeing the possibilities in a change or to figure out how to handle whatever comes flying in life.

So, today, we’re having a chance to embrace change and see what balance will look like from now on.

Take care!
