Life is Like a Jigsaw Puzzle

I came across this cute write-up today in a Daytripping magazine and thought I'd share my favorite six points. Daytrippers are free in just about every community throughout Southern Ontario (I happen to be visiting here for the next week) and outline the best antique shops, artisans, craft shows, museums, events etc. worth taking in. While here, I am antiquing and hope to have interesting finds and pics to share once I return.

Everything I Needed To Know About Life 
I Learned From A Jigsaw Puzzle

1. Don't force a fit. If something is meant to be, it will come together naturally.

2. When things aren't going so well, take a break. Everything will look different when you return.

3. Be sure to look at the big picture. Getting hung up on the little pieces only leads to frustration.

4. Perseverance pays off. Every important puzzle went together bit by bit, piece by piece.

5. When one spot stops working, move to another. But be sure to come back later.

6. Establish the border first. Boundaries give a sense of security and order.


  1. How neat! Kind of like the one "All I ever needed to know, I learned in Kindergarten" if you've ever seen that one.

  2. Lorene, I thought these were really applicable to real life, there are 6 other points I plan to share at a later date.
