Stuck in the Middle?

Last week’s cartoon,  which has to do with how you fool yourself into getting fat,  is here.  All rights reserved, and content including cartoons is ©Donna Barstow 2014,  My own website is Donna Barstow Cartoons. And Like me  on Facebook to get notified of new cartoons. Thanks!

This week’s cartoon is about making decisions, or making up your mind.

I read somewhere recently that having too much stuff, or living in a cluttered home ( or being a hoarder, if you want to be mean about it,) has to do with this very thing: avoiding the decision as to where something should be put, or what should be done with it.

I doubt that this is the answer we’re all looking for! However, sometimes making a commitment – and this is what a decision really is –  is necessary to move forward, so you’re not stuck in one place.

I’d love to hear from other people about this!

Are you in, or are you out?

Title of post is from Stuck in the Middle with You Song by Stealers Wheels.
