Word of the Week: Playing Catch-Up
I haven’t been very active on my blog lately and I have missed quite a few “Word of the Weeks” so I would like to do somewhat of a catch-up post today. So for this post I will be defining numerous words with quotes and pictures. Hopefully this will make up for lost time. I aim to continue with word of the week so stay tuned next Monday for a new word.
Pronunciation: [shuh-toi-uh nt]
-changing in color or luster; chatoyant silk
-reflecting a single streak of light when cut in a cabochon
Pronunciation: [kuh n-fleyt]
-to fuse into on entity; to merge. To conflate dissenting voices into one protest.
Pronunciation: [nas- uh nt, ney-suh nt]
-beginning to exist or develop
The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready
-Henry David Thoreau
Supposing you have tried and failed again and again.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose,
for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.
– Mary Pickford
Use this time of fresh beginnings. Use it as an impetus, the force or energy toward change. Become stronger, a better leader, more focused in your thoughts. Exert more influence over your dreams by bringing them closer to your thoughts, every day.
– Mary Anne Radmacher
