Have you played this game yet? If not, you might want to pass because it’s so addicting. It’s this simple little sliding puzzle game where you slide tiles that when they match, they combine with like tiles and become a larger multiple exponent of 2. The object of the game is to combine tiles and get to the 2048 tile before you run out of space.

The more I play this game, the more it’s become symbolic with life for me. I’m always sliding pieces together and combining like terms and trying to be efficient and to create open space. But sometimes I get stuck and my space and time gets full, and I get blocked and have to start over again. Just like the game. I create space by combining things and then something new shows up! Just like that, I’m stuffed again.

For example, remember my linen closet that I shared months ago that was such a mess? I finally decided to get unstuck today and cleaned it out and reorganized it. I combined my 2s and 4s, 8s and 16s, 32s and 64s. It’s not perfect, but it’s my perfect 2048 or maybe it’s just a 1024?

I am happy that I finally tackled this problem and made progress. Heck, I feel like I won! But I still have more work to do. Time to play again!

Can you relate??
