Friday’s Word (32)

Finally!  We have finally made it to the last letter in the alphabet!  There are so many words one could choose.  Language and vocabulary can be exciting to learn.  I have loved learning new words and highlighting some favorites along the way.

This seemed a great word for the last one.  Be zealous for this life!  To learn, to grow, to strike out on new adventures!  I want to always tackle this life with Zeal.

Fridays word (27)

I haven’t shared a word from another language in a bit. I think it’s always interesting to learn, so this was a great word for today.

It’s a Japanese word that I wonder if we have an English equivalent.

Being present; in the moment is definitely where I’m finding joy today. Taking an extra day this holiday season to spend with my oldest home from college.

Enjoy today. Don’t worry every moment about the pains of life. Learning to do this can be tough but does bring peace to your days, helping you live your best life.

Sending you all positive thoughts to stay present today.

This. So much this!

Sometimes the process is so hard, draining, not enjoyable that this idea seems impossible. But the more I say it aloud, the more it resonates. There is power when you own the hard. When you believe the process will change you. When those tough moments soften a sharp edge or teach you a new way to view yourself and this life.

Everyday I want to fall more in love with who I’m becoming, owning that this is a process, a work in progress daily is a part of that. Everyday we get to wake up and choose our thoughts. Everyday is a new opportunity for growth.

How do you see the journey? Your own journey to being the best you? Repeat this phrase above. Fall in Love with your own path. With the you you were, are and who you’re becoming… It’s such a beautiful life.

Friday’s word (26)

Another Friday is upon us.  The last day of November.  Another year quickly coming to a close.  I am surprised how fast this year has gone.  Perhaps when you change your life in drastic ways that everything is almost unrecognizable; the year moves faster than usual.

I love this word I found today.  I am often torn between my love of the mountains and my love of the ocean.  But thought this word sounded cool and described many I know.  There is something about sitting on a beach, in the sand, watching the waves roll in and out, the wind  blowing (at least on the beaches in the PNW) that brings a tranquility not found anywhere else.  The ocean reminds us how small we are.  And for me how great and powerful things can be.  The sea is a mighty force that can be beautiful and ferocious.   Like each one of us in this life.

Are you a thalassophile?  Get out and enjoy the sea!

Friday’s Word (24)

I love learning. I am constantly reading and exploring new thoughts and ideas. Posting vocabulary words is a fun thing for me. Sometimes I learn a new word, in a new language or sometimes I am reminded of a word I like.

Enjoy today’s. And maybe get lost in your own daydream. Use it to fuel you to live a life of your dreams.
