I tried coming up with a better name for this weekly post (I have been thinking of starting this for some time now) but could not! Nonetheless, I decided to go ahead with this. From now on, every Wednesday, I will be posting a word particularly meaningful for me that week or something defining most of my thoughts or a word that I simply like. I also plan to post words that are probably not part of our everyday parlance a lot and maybe simple words from different languages (for example, those that are used in greetings) from around the world. Words that define our lives, guide us in our quest for a better tomorrow will also obviously be shared too. What’s the point of such a post, one may ask! I am not too sure, but I am eager to try out how much I can learn and re learn from this. The essence of words shape not only our day to day workings but our bigger purpose in life too.
It will be awesome if you could join in and leave a word that you like or has particular significance in your life in the comment section! I might also use the word in my next post (with full credit to you, of course!) and we can get rolling this way, together.
Here’s my first word for this post:
- To persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles or discouragement; continue steadfastly. (Dictionary.com)
- To persist in a state, enterprise or undertaking in spite of counterinfluences, opposition or discouragement. (Merriam-Webster.com)
In the face of all opposition, when you hold on and refuse to let go, you persevere and it has been my belief always, that one who perseveres, succeeds. Struggles are endless and they dampen our spirits,; at times obstacles seem insurmountable and yet most refuse to give up. That’s the power and beauty of the human spirit…it is indomitable and it refuses to succumb to adversity .
I would love to hear back from you.What words you like or dislike, what guides you, motivates you…anything. Please feel free to join in with a word or phrase or saying of your choice. You can also use photographs, quotes..anything that depicts or captures the significance of the word.
Happy Wednesday, you all!
