Life In Verbs

ThingsWeForget has done it again! The copyeditor in me wants it to say “Live is a verb” (just to make it accurate, you know?), but I cannot quibble with the sentiment – nor with the fact that it inspired me to make a list of my favorite verbs. In no particular order, here are…

My 13 Favorite Verbs (Right Now)

Kiss

Climb

Rebel

Giggle

Indulge

Refrain

Jump

Sing

Love

Believe

Investigate

Blurt

    DANCE – Melissa, you make me feel like dancing!

  2. De23 says:

    LIFT – at CF
    HUG – at home (I think as kids get older they need MORE hugs!)

  3. Flourish!

    (Yeah, that’s what my blog is about, but that’s the point, right? :)

    Try, Aspire, Cherish, Breathe, Learn…

    This kind of reminds me of a hotel where I used to work and one of their marketing lines was “between being and becoming…” I thought it was corny then and I didn’t get it and I still don’t. What do a couple of gerunds have to do with a good night’s sleep?

    But I love this and Things We Forget.

  6. I spend everyday “forgive” and “learn”. And I also value “fight” and “attack” quite a bit. I have a close working relationship with “decompress” and “unplug”. There is always room for more “laugh” and “cherish” and “comfort”.

    You know what I really like about this list? Work is listed pretty early on but only once… I’m out of work right now and starting to find it pretty frustrating, since I thrive best when I’m busy. This is a good reminder that there’s a LOT more to life than working (even though a paycheck would be great!) and many important verbs:
    SAVOR
    SKIP
    DANCE
    RUN
    SWEAT
    LAUGH

  11. Mel says:

    Thank you, everyone, for posting your favorite verbs.

    Today I’m feeling:

    Ice (as in “ice your shoulder)

    and

    Write (as in “write your cookbook or else!”)

  12. Caroline Bull says:

    I’m going with meander and gambol – mostly because I wish I was doing that instead of another verb – work. (Not that I don’t have the best job, but sometimes it’s like being grounded for 24 hours at a time.)
