Live Laugh Love

This post is for Day 11 of the 2019 Slice of Life Challenge. Thanks to the Two Writing Teachers for bringing this community of writers together to share our writing in the month of March.

I have a pillow in my living room. It's stitched with the words Live, Laugh, Love. I'm using that today as a framework for my post. Not feeling so creative today. Maybe this structure will help. What structures have you found helpful?

Live for the rainbow after the storm.
Live with joy and gratefulness.
Live with devotion and curiosity.
Live for warm breezes after a chilly winter.

Laugh with children and family.
Laugh even when it's hard
Laugh at the silly moments that happen.
Laugh at your own mistakes.

Love friends and family
Love sunshine and blossoms
Love blue skies and the green forest.
Love the world.


  1. I love this format and it speaks to me about things that I sometimes take for granted. I have a special pillow in my bedroom too. It says, "Eat Kale." I am not sure if I can turn that phrase into a Slice or not, but it might interesting to try.

  2. What a great format! Wonderful words to think and write about too. :)
    When I am stuck, I go to a "From my chair" format --- you make a list/poem of things you can see from your chair.... I have a few examples on my blog if you want to get the idea of what I'm talking about.
    I love the idea of looking at something in my house with words and going off of that!

    1. Thanks for sharing the "from the chair" format. I will take a look at your blog for some inspiration.
