Pick Your Battles

Pick your battles. You don’t have to show up to every argument you’re invited to.


Duff here. Mom says I learn Different things every day. Ways to run in the Meadow next door. A different Way to Enjoy My meals. (I drag it all over the Front Room. Discretely, of course.) An unusual method to Sprawl out on the Floor. The List is endless. Living unstuck.

But I learned Something totally Phenomenal Today. As Mom and I were coming in from Outside, I spied a Black Puppy. (Once I was chased by A Black Dog, and have never trusted That Type since.) This Pup was three times My Size, but I ran toward Him anyway, barking furiously, The Young ‘Un refused to Respond, but was willing to play. He decided He didn’t have to show Up to the Fight. Probably not worth the Time or Effort. His Owner was quite nice, and forgave My Vocal Outburst. Whew! Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You pick Your battles? Or is everything A Big Dust up? I say: Step back and take a Look. Make sure What You’re taking On is important to You. If Another is itching to argue, You don’t have to respond. A powerful lesson for Me. Let’s see if It sticks. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#pick-your-battles
