Live, Laugh and Love

"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans"
John Lennon

Plans are great aren't they. Do you make lists? I make lists to remember to make lists because I am a Capricorn and that is one of the things we do.

We need a certain amount of structure, scheduling, listmaking and planning. I mean what in the world would things be like if we all lived helter skelter with no thought to the desired outcome.

But isn't this like every single other aspect of living. That we need to find a balance in our lives. You know a little of this and a little of that and above all to not get so caught up in our planning that we forget to LIVE. To experience things that may never come along again. I have to stop myself and ask "how important is making this bed, or doing this chore right now in the grand scheme of things" and more often than not I realize it will be right here when I get back to it and to live on the wild side a little and take a swing with a child or color a picture in a big picture color book or other little things not in my daily routine of organization and planning.

Hope you have a great day and remember..................LIVE while you can!


  1. Oh Mollye sweetie...
    I love this post. To cute for sure. How true we are always making lists, but I forget where I put the list of things that were to remind me what I needed to do. I can make another list, and most likely end up in the same fix. Lists are a BIG vicious circle for me.

    Thanks for sharing. Great pics of John, I love them.

    Have a beautiful day my sweet friend. Love ya sweetie...Sherry

  2. I know what you mean about lists. I don't make nearly as many as I used to. Now that I'm older I have found that it's the little things that need taken care of more than the big things. It's unfortunate that we cannot be this way when our children are small and having enough time in the day was difficult.
    I no longer worry about the dusty kitchen cabinet tops and the baseboards. It will all get done eventually but right now it's time to stop and enjoy being with those you love and doing the little things.
    Thanks for your wonderful post.


  3. Oh words to Live by! Lists are a must at my age, my memory has gotten the best of me.LOL
    I'll gladly not make my bed for a chance to play with my art! I really like your thinking! Heres to a New Year filled with more time to play and less work!

  4. You're a Cap?? Me, too! When's your birthday? Mine's on the 14th.

    And yes, I make lists. I do so much better when I do. Always encouraging others to do the same thing, but nobody but us Capricorns will listen, lol.

    I hope your New Year is the best you've ever had, but not quite as good as every year that follows it!

  5. I make list and then if I do something that's not on my list, I add it, just for the sheer joy of marking it off!

    Happy New Year!

  6. Great post Mollye! I live making lists. I have to plan an attack and attack a plan.
    Happy New Year my friend!


Thanks for taking your valuable time to tell me what you are thinking about!
