I like words. I like learning and discovering words. There are times when we have ideas and notions running around in our minds, unable to fully express or really comprehend our own inner monologues. Then, we discover that there is a word, just one word, that describes exactly how we feel and think and yet were unable to convey. This astounds me and makes me feel a deep connection and assurance that I am not alone; so many others have felt exactly the same way that they’ve even created a word for it.
Lately this word sums up exactly how I have been thinking, how I need more direction and control over my future. Of how I am too much of a dreamer and need to be more practical and rational in order to achieve fulfillment. And yet, I also believe contentment is the goal. Happiness wavers and without the lows, you cannot experience the highs. Being content and assured in myself is my goal, the rest will follow.
