Creative Randomness

If you knew me, you’d know that I’m a person that really likes things in order.  Themes make me giddy and anything you can put in a list fills me with a great calm. That being said, there are days where the orderliness of life becomes a bit mundane and frankly mind-numbing.

I have been experiencing a bit of that lately, so I decided to inject some ‘randomeness’ into my life.  I discovered that online you can find websites that will randomly generate just about anything.  I originally started looking because of an idea I have brewing that I’ll share in a few weeks, but soon discovered that generating random stuff it quite a phenomenon.

I happen to love words, so I used this random-verb generator to give me ten verbs that I then used to describe my life at the current moment.  Granted these are only significant to me and quite possibly boring to you, but it’s a great way to get my creativity flowing.

Here’s my list:

  • Listening to the birds chirping.  An incredibly relaxing sound.
  • Wishing there were more hours in the day.
  • Knitting up a square for orphans in South Africa.
  • Closing in on completing a series of blog posts.
  • Hoping I can get through my ‘ToDo’ List this week.
  • Living with two cute doggies and one awesome husband.
  • Switching the route that I walk the dogs.  Just for some variety.
  • Discovering the ways God wants me to serve others.
  • Wondering if I’ll ever be done with laundry.
  • Turning up the volume during the 2nd movement of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony.

I was amazed that the word ‘knitting’ showed up in the list.  Kind of like the random-verb generator knows me. Huh!

It’s a great exercise to force me to be present and think about the moment I’m in.  I have lots that I’m going to be sharing in the coming days and wanted to ease myself back into your ‘blog-reading’ lives with this post.

Give it a whirl and leave a comment with some of your randomly generated words.




IMG_3616We’re not surprised the word ‘knitting’ came up.  We are flabbergasted that ‘dog’, ‘walk’, ‘treat’, ‘kibble’, ‘bone’ weren’t on the list.  We think you need to find a better random-word generator.

Oh and while we’re on the subject, we’d love a treat.
