You may wonder why I embedded a picture of a game of Words with Friends to the right. It will make sense as you continue reading. If you are not familiar with the game of Words with Friends, it is like an online game of Scrabble.
If you play Scrabble or Words with Friends, you know that sometimes you are dealt with a hand of unfavorable letters. For example, you may given either all consonants or all vowels. Like life, we are sometimes placed in unfortunate circumstances out of our control. We have to work with what we have. Sometimes we can’t build a word with the letters that we are given, and it is okay to admit to temporal defeat and hit pass or swap, allowing others to help you (aka asking for help) or utilizing new letters (aka approach). Not asking for help and using the same dead end approach is futile and insane. As defined by Albert Einstein, “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, despite the challenges or obstacles of life we have to work with or overcome, reflect on and be thankful for all the good aspect of life.
