Gentle Persuasion

Duff photoDuff here. I believe I mentioned before How well I have trained Mom. She responds to a Prolonged Stare when I’m hungry. Or a Tummy Rub when I roll over and look Winningly Cute. I’m particularly Successful when I decide to Wake 5 or 10 minutes before the Alarm. I shake My Body in My carrier and She begins to stir. Time for the Day to begin. Living unstuck.

The Secret to a happy Mom? To make The Idea seem as if It came from her. Yup. She’s the One Who Enjoys the feel of My Fur. So I get Petted. She’s the One Who needs a Break at times. I’m a Visual reminder. But I have to Be Stealthy about these moves. The Plan Never works if I push it. (Or perhaps I should say, not very often.) Not unstuck at all then.

How about You? Do You gently orchestrate Events with a Friend or partner at times? Or do You forcefully Lay down the Law? I say: Observe closely. Pick Your time. Then Make Your Quiet Move. Voila! All will be well. At least, that’s what I have Found. Live unstuck. #unstuck-living#gentle-persuasion

“You’re not the boss of me,” I whisper to my dog as I put his blanket on the “right way.”
