The primary reason I sign into Facebook is to play scrabble. My sister and I have been playing constantly for probably more than a year now. We love to have close scores too - we get a real charge if the game is within one or two points!

And I agree - inspiration is everywhere, you just have to pay attention.

Great post! I've never played scrabble. But your scrabble was my field hockey. There are lots of great activities out there that can teach you about life. If you're applying yourself to something and you don't know if you'll win or lose, there are opportunities to learn something more.

Jennifer - That's awesome! A game with a close score is the best. I'm glad you're enjoying Scrabble as much as I am!

Molly - You should give it a try. I never thought I would be that into it, but it's awesome. It's great that you have an activity that inspires you. It's so important to have that!

Such a fun and great post. I'd add another one....

7. Sometimes your head isn't in the game, and that's okay.

How many times do we find ourselves with all the right letters to dominate a game, but we just can't seem to put the letters together into the right words. It can be frustrating, but it's okay. That's usually just a sign that it's time to take a break from the game, recharge and refocus, and come back to the game board the following day ready to win. :-)

Jason - That's an excellent point! Thanks so much for bringing that up! It's true that sometimes we have have the best letters, but not be in the right place to do something great with them. Often, when I'm feeling really tired and not playing my best, I'll take a break from the game, get some rest, and pick it up the next day. I'm always such a better player when I'm' well-rested. So glad you brought this up because it's exactly what I do -- and it works!

Being patient does pay off, and it really echoes the saying, "Good things come to those who wait."

J.D. - That's a great saying -- and such a true one!

Wow i really liked it. ANd also, it made me want to play scrabble at once haha :)

Kata - Awesome! I'm glad you liked it and I hope you got a chance to play Scrabble!

I had just started playing not long before you posted this and I have to agree I love it as well :) Those were some great tips for scrabble and life, thanks for sharing :)

MP - Yay! That's awesome that, like me, you've also become a Scrabble fan recently. It's such a great game!
