Stick to One Thing

Consider the postage stamp. Its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing until it gets there.

—Josh Billings

Duff photoDuff again. I wondered about the Wisdom of this Quote over the weekend. Mom considers postage stamps as Quite Useful Creations. I watch Her as She pays bills, humming as She does. She even sends little Notes to Those who receive the payments, just for Fun. She is also grateful to have the Cash to pay for Kibble and Bits in the Doggy Bowl. (Of course, that makes Me happy too. I get Tummy Rumbles just thinking about it.)

Cards and Letters to Friends are posted, too. One time, She sent a Valentine Card to an older lady. This Friend happily called Her and said it was the first Heart Card she had received in 46 years. What a way to Unstick Friends!

All of This would not be possible were it not for The Lowly Postage Stamp. This Emblem That Sticks announces to the World: “I have merit. I have a purpose and I stay the Course.” The Stamp is a guarantee for The Missive to safely arrive at its Destination. It Stays Stuck on Tight. And, in that way, functions to live unstuck.

How about You? Are You able start a Task, seeing It Through to the End? Or do You get Sidetracked along the Way? I advise: Focus on What You’re Doing. You will Find both Joy and Accomplishment at the Journey’s End. And Those Half Finished Projects will not be hounding you as You try to Relax. They can be True Guilt Inducers. I have found This to be True. Live unstuck.
