If you are following along, you’ll note that each post is on a word from the dictionary, a to z. Since I am working on posting something every day (or at least, every weekday) this project should last about a month. This is in response to a post I read recently about posting every day, as part of a 30-day plan to become a better blogger.

OK, that said, we move onto the word of the day. Gaffle means to take hold of, or to seize, as one’s own. This is something I need to do with my future. As in, I’ve been not so good at planning for the days, weeks, months and years to come. This means that I am not forward looking, or forward thinking. I just kind of deal with things as they come along. This leaves me often feeling as if I have nothing to look forward to, so it is not good for my usual optimistic outlook.

Well, gee, aren’t we having a little bit of pity here? Gaffle the meaning in this post, if you will and see if it applies at all to your situation. I once knew a guy who would say; “Failure to plan, is a plan to fail.” I never agreed with that philosophy, as I thought failure to plan was no plan at all, so it certainly was not a plan to fail. Nobody would make that plan.

The point is, I suppose, if you have no plans, your future is mostly cloudy, with a chance of rain. 

Enjoy it, anyway!
