(43-154) Ten Words

As of today, I have been 43 for five months.  Boy, how time has flown.  I know that I say that in one way or another, A LOT; but in terms of this year (for me,) and my commitment to writing this blog daily; I truly can't believe that I'm five months in; and I am SO HAPPY to be able to say that, I'm FIVE MONTHS IN!  WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

The other day when I asked my kids to pick a topic out of Mari's "Memories & Thoughts" jar; they found one that I haven't been able to get off of my mind.  It was "Tell ten words that you love and ten words that you hate;"  and so, since without WORDS, I would have no blog; I think it's apropos that I take this challenge today. 

Lover of words that I am; it was actually difficult for me to pick JUST ten words; but I tried to choose those that mean a lot to me.   And because it seems that I often make things a lot more difficult for myself than is necessary; I won't include 2 words per list, that you have to know are automatic givens for me. On the Hate side, you won't see DEATH or DYING and on the Love side, I won't use FAMILY or LOVE; and since I always like to end on a positive note; I'll list the ten words that I hate first. 

Ten words that I HATE:
1.   Cancer
2.   Suffering
3.   Can't
4.   Diet
5.   Failure
6.   Obese
7.   Cruelty
8.   Bills
9.   Bully
10. Misery

Ten words that I LOVE:
1.   Vacation
2.   Hugs
3.   Whimsical
4.   Peace
5.   Devotion
6.   Imagination
7.   Free
8.   Create
9.   Eclectic
10. Courageous

Whew!  Just hearing these words can make me make me happy or sad; and I think that this is a great reminder that one single word can be very, very powerful. One word can make some one's day or break their heart; so I hope that you'll remember that and choose your words wisely and carefully.
Till next time...
