Word of the Week: Ephemeral

The word of the week is: Ephemeral

Pronunciation: [ih-fem-er-uhl]

Definition:

adjective
1. lasting a very short time; short-lived; transitory: (such as the ephemeral joys of childhood)

2. lasting but one day (like an ephemeral flower)

noun

3. anything short-lived, as certain insects.

Think about how a butterfly is on the Earth for such a short period of time, yet contributes so much. We don’t just need butterflies to pollinate flowers in order to continue the plant life cycle, but they also add beauty to our lives. They may not live very long (2-4 weeks) but they live their life with a purpose, which is how we should live ours. Time goes by fast, so live each moment intentionally and to the fullest. And when you have the chance to make someone else’s life a little more beautiful, take the opportunity and run with it.
