In continuation of my 31 days of randomness – Day 26,27,29 – Give it a rest!!!
I’ve committed myself to writing on one topic and staying only on that one topic for at least 31 days. As mentioned in previous posts, I have very succinctly stated that focus is not my forte. I’ve been quite distracted over the past couple of weeks and I have mostly stayed on track. Somehow I did fall behind on this 31 day quest so today I’m simply catching up. That and…
More importantly, I have lost some of my interest in this topic and like at any other point in my life when I lose interest in something or just plainly become confused I seek guidance from a person, place or thing that has a way more in depth understanding of life’s twists and turns.
As a child I would use the “magic 8 ball” that many remember from childhood. You simply pose a “yes” or “no” question and it will resolve the dilemma with a simple shake and flip. Life was easy back then. Every question asked would receive answers such as the following.

I loved it so much I rushed out and got it as well. Why wouldn’t I? The book description states in very bold letters “The Oracle Book KNOWS YOUR FUTURE” (This mysterious book is a do-it-yourself divination tool. Ask it a yes-or-no question, and find your answer within…” How could I resist you ask.. I couldn’t. So I have been packing this book around for several years now and will randomly pull it out when I am faced with a difficult situation.. like continuing to blog on this one word for nearly 6 more days. Here is a spattering of a few of the answers you might receive when asking this book a question..
All very good advice when someone is struggling with a burning yes or no question. However, as of late when I ask a question the only answer I seem to arrive at is “You’ve rolled AN ELEVEN: give it a rest.
So for today that is my inspiration…
