Those Dang Squirrels

We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious . . . and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

—Walt Disney

Duff here. As You may remember, I have an ongoing Struggle with Squirrels. I chase Them, and They quickly scamper away. I bark Fiercely, and They Chitter back at Me. I run in circles, and They rocket along in Straight Lines. I follow Them, and They disappear into the Branches of Trees. This is Most discouraging, for I would like to Catch at least One. Living unstuck.

The other day, Uncle Mortimer and I were commiserating about this Very Problem. Then He had a Brilliant Idea and made an appointment with the Local Counselor for Distressed Canines. (Yes, there is such a Thing.) This Wise and Gentle Man advised Him to slow down His antics. To be slow and smooth. Then graciously ask Them to Play. This concept goes against His Very Nature, for He is energetic. Lively. Loud and noisy. Constant movement. That’s Mortimer. I’m not sure He’ll use this Strategy, but I’m strongly considering It. Living unstuck.

How about You? Have You been stymied by an Issue for a Time? Or Is it Smooth Sailing all the Way? I say: Check with Others in the Same Boat. They may have another Solution. Or not. But either way, I’ve found It’s usually good for a Laugh. Living unstuck. #unstuck-living#challenges
