"I am an animal rescuer.
I will save lives.
I will lose lives.
I will make wise decisions.
I will make mistakes.
I will be surrounded by people who understand what I do and how I feel.
I will be criticized by those who do not understand.
I will rejoice when each homeless huggable finds a new forever family.
I will suffer through days when I cannot get those lost out of my mind.
For each day that I continue to move forward, I will help keep more from being lost."
