It's a GOODe Life: Life's a Puzzle

 My little life coach gots me thinkin' again...

Life is a lot like a great big puzzle...

It isn't always easy.

Sometimes you don't know where to put a piece.

You can't remember.

You think you can't.

Sometimes you just got a piece in crooked and you need to turn it around.

You just need to tackle it one piece at a time.

Sometimes a herd of horses comes in and tramples all over your puzzle...

Manure occurreth... Just sayin'

Other times you find the perfect fit and want to scream "I did it!" and high-five your mama :)

And just what happens when you think you finally gots it all together?

Something comes along...Turns your puzzle upside down and  the cycle starts again...

Funny thing, this part is my little life coach's favorite part.

The adult in me wants to take a moment to relish in the completion of the 24 piece puzzle masterpiece. The accomplishment. Take in the glory of finally having it all together.

Not Add.

She enjoys the process. The journey.

She relishes finding each piece.

For Add, it isn't about the puzzle. It is all about putting the pieces together.

3 GOODe Thoughts:

Joy in the journey. How often do I forget that...always. I hope that I learn to enjoy it more :)
