Are you the kind of person who likes words?
The other night my husband asked me what my favorite word was. I found it hard to choose one out of the many that I stored in my semi-organized brain; safe, acceptance, loyalty, caring, love to name a few. I did not know which one to choose at that moment.. but I went with safe as we had a friend sleeping over who feared going back home, but then a few days later I changed it to family because I had such a good time with my kids, and then to dedication today because I need to stick to a meditation routine that my friend Paula is trying to work me through.
There are so many words out there that mean so much to so many and maybe the best way to choose a word is day by day... as each day brings up a new emotion, a new experience and new contact with a person or living thing... and that in turn sparks up a few sensations which are allotted a word. (Am I making sense?).
Is there one word out there that could summarize your entire emotional state in one word?
For me this word is one that I could use when I am feeling ok or sad... it is a word which could be described as arrogant and one which is often used by teenagers nowadays...whatever... I use it when I either do not want to make decisions, am happy with anything, or I feel bummed out and do not really care what we do or eat, watch or play... But I usually use it with a shrug of my shoulders and sometimes a smile... I really think that this one word fully depicts the emotions that would be swimming within me at that moment.
There are a few other Arabic words that I use and that have become ingrained in my everyday vocabulary that sometimes I have to really focus so as not to use them in a class where no one speaks Arabic. Do you have such a word that you continuously use and sometimes it comes out without you meaning for it to?
