You guys !!! It’s the very first Wordful Wednesday of a brand new year !!!
I like to tell myself that I love all the parts of this little blog equally, but the truth is, I play favourites.
Depending on what day of the week it is, I love the various features that we have around here with a deep passion that comes from the very depths of my soul. On Mondays, I’m convinced that movies are the most meaningful art form that exists. On Fridays, I believe that the right quote at the right time can change the world. And on Wednesdays, well, on Wednesdays I just don’t want to stop talking. Ever. Because on Wednesdays I’m quite certain that words are simply the most gorgeous things you’ll ever find in all of time and space and the whole entire universe.
So it was important to me that I found a particularly good word for today’s post. No, not a good word, a great one. A word that’s easy on the eyes and lovely to say out loud and that’s maybe even recognized by spell-check. Today’s word is sanguine: happy, optimistic, bouyant
In other words …
My 2014. And hopefully yours, too.
I’m thrilled to be kicking off the new year with sanguine for a couple of reasons. Number one, it’s all silky sounding, and I love the way it slips off my tongue. Number two, it surprised me. I’ve come across this word before; but as it turns out, I didn’t know what it means. I thought sanguine was another word for steady; I thought it was placid and unflappable, and it’s actually animated and alive. You guys, how perfect is that ?!? This year is only eight days old and I have a ton of stuff in my pile of good things already, and my heart flies even higher upwards when I think of everything still to come.
Sanguine is so totally going to be my word for the year. What’s yours? Tell me all about it in the Comments!
