The 5 By 5 Rule

If it’s not gonna matter 5 years from now, don’t spend more than 5 minutes upset by it.


Duff here. What a curious thought! Now, I have had Major Upsets in My life. Once Mom lost Me on the Hill. She thought She’d do Me a favor and let Me off My leash. Wrong! I got to wandering about, adventuring as I do, and lost Track of Time. She was calling and shouting, Bellowing like a Fishwife. But I have selective Hearing. (She was not offering the most favored enticement, Food and Tidbits.) I also realized this Problem was not going to matter five years from now. Living unstuck.

However, It did matter to Her. She trekked up the Hill, in search of Her Wandering Pup. As concerned as She was, She began to smile as She found Me. I greeted Her with a Wagging Tail and Turns in Fast Circles. She didn’t spend more than five minutes upset by It. But believe Me, I am on a Leash at all times Anymore. Well, most of the Time. Living unstuck.

How about You? Do You have a Lengthy fuss and fume about Little Things? Or do You let Them go after a Short Time? I say: Life is too short to be Caught up in the Mires and Messes. Take a Deep breath and know all is Well. It’s the Best way to live. Live unstuck. #unstuck-living#let-it-go
