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.

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 (25)

As I started my day this morning I was aware of how content I am in this season. How much I am enjoying the new changes in my life. How all the work I put in to become healthy has paid off. Knowing yourself, knowing it’s ok to take care of yourself, even as a mother or wife or partner… Is vital to becoming the best you, you can be.

This word I stumbled upon seemed a good fit for today’s state of mind. Know that the work you put into yourself pays off. Improvement leads to a better life and more happiness.

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.
