Wayward

DSC03441This is Beauregard Louis. And he’s our wayward bloodhound.

Way•ward /wey-werd/ adjective

If you have a hound dog or have had the privilege of spending time with one you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.  Is he adorable? absolutely! Does he love to snuggle? of course! Does he love you unconditionally as you’d expect from man’s best friend? uh…….. maybe. That depends if you’ve given him his way or not. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, be sure to stick around.  I can’t make this stuff up.

The word wayward often has a negative connotation. I was thinking about it one day (while I was scrubbing drool off every horizontal and vertical surface in the house) and realized I’m a little wayward too.

Persistent, Dedicated, Fearless, Passionate, Creative, Dreamer, Adventure Seeker. This is how I define wayward. And I think we could all use some wayward in our lives.
