LIVE Now ~ We’re A Long Time DEAD August 16, 2010

Be happy while you’re living, for you’re a long time dead. ~ Scottish Proverb

One thing that gets in the way of our happiness . . . worry.

Challenge your mind to solve a puzzle that actually has a solution!  

In FUN with WORDS, I tossed out a few doublet challenges for you from the Guinness Book of Words.  If you haven’t tried one yet, there’s still time. 

Here’s a solution to #8:  from LIVE to DEAD:


Did you have this solution?

Thanks, I spent the day on a massive spring clean spree … feels great and I am not even halfway done 🙂

Yay! Seems funny to be having a spring cleaning during our summer’s end ~ just shows how ego-centric I am. : )

Cleaning (dusting and vaccuuming) doesn’t energize me, but organizing, purging, clearing clutter, etc. = a huge mental energy boost for me.

I love moving from disarray, chaos, and confusion to calm serenity in drawers, closets, cupboard, etc.

Glad you made some great progress.

How I relish those feelings, too… Even if it were the only thing we have control over in our lives, it’s a great place to start 😀

Yes. That’s it in a nutshell . . . we realize that we do have some control over our lives. : )
