The Only Way Out is Through

The only way out is through.

—Robert Frost

Duff here. The way out is through. What an interesting thought! When I was in the back yard of a friend of my mom’s, I was happy playing for a time. After a while, I wanted to go and find her. But there was no way out. The backyard fence was sturdy and strong. The gate, however, had a small space beneath it. You guessed it. I dug and I dug until I could worm my way out. I moved through that obstacle. I then adventured and made friends with the neighbors until I was recognized (not hard to do) and brought back. My mom arrived and all was well. But to me, the only way out is really through . . . the gate, the unlatched carrier, the open door. I live unstuck.

How about you? Do you take matters in your own hands (or paws, so to speak) and tunnel your way through an issue to a solution? Or do you sit and wait for the problem to be resolved? I say: it depends on the situation. If you think it will work itself out, wait and see what happens. Sometimes that’s the best course of action. No muss, no fuss. But if a response is best, then get in gear and start moving. I have found you’ll feel better for it. I’ll celebrate your success. Live unstuck. #UnstuckLiving
