False Alarms

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thought about it.

—Eckhart Tolle

Duff photoDuff here. A humongous Snow Storm rolled through My Town this last weekend. The Flakes were Beautiful to watch as They fell. And I love My Winter Wonderland. I fly about and do Brodies, skidding and making My own Flurries fly. I romp about and Play. Snow is a Good Thing to Me. Mom carefully Towels Me off after These Adventures, for My Legs and Tummy get quite Damp. All part of living unstuck.

But very early This Morning, I heard a Dreadful Sound. A shrill Beep, Beep, Beep, and was convinced They were coming to get Me. I barked and Howled in My Own Fashion to warn Mom, for She’s My Best line of Defense. She shot out of Bed to console Me, taking Me out of My Carrier Castle and snuggling in. But I was having None of it. She didn’t understand the Gravity of the Situation. She finally took Me outside. and showed Me the Snowplow busily at work on those Big Drifts. I was still doubtful, but if She was comfortable, Who am I to doubt? Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You get Fearful about a Situation and Sound the Alarm? Or do You take Things in stride? I say: There’s a time for each Alternative. I was Sounding a Justified Alarm. But Mom thought differently. In the End, I trusted Her Decision. And went back to Sleep. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#false-alarms
