What does Meraki mean?

Today we explore the beautiful word – Meraki [may-rah-kee]. It means to do something with your soul , creativity, or love. It also means when you put something of yourself into what you do. This could be your passion for music, your desire for drawing, or your love for writing. Anything where you leave a piece of your soul/self in your work. This word I find is peaceful and fun to say. Although the word is Greek… I can’t help but think of how similar it sounds to Japanese.

Anywho… as meraki is a difficult word to use in a sentence I’ll leave some links to where you can read on how to use it in a sentence and determine the proper use… my best attempt would be:

My meraki is in everything I write.

But again, not quite sure if that is correct since… well there isn’t a lot of people who actually use this word in a sentence.

Wonderful Word Wednesday: Panoply

PANOPLY

Unlike Monopoly – the game that ruins friendships and marriages – panoply is actually a good thing. When you have an panoply is usually means you have a complete set of something. Panoply is so fun to say… well I find anything with an LY fun to say actually.

Ways of using panoply in a sentence:

You may think I’m crazy but I have a panoply of the Spice Girls Dolls.

Or…

Many people have a panoply of the Harry Potter Series.

 

So, what kind of panoplies do you have/ are proud of?

Wonderful Word Wednesday: Stalwart

stalwart

When I hear the word stalwart, the first thing that comes to mind is a stall – as in stopping something – and wart – smooth growths of skin normally found on a witch’s nose. Together stalwart makes me think it means stalling the growth of a wart… but in no way is that the actual meaning.

Stalwart actually means: a loyal, reliable, and hardworking supporter or participant in an organization or team (Thanks Google).

That’s why I had to share this word today on WWW because of how two words meaning completely different things can be put together to make a word that means something completely different. This is why I love the English language. XD

Stalwart used in a sentence:

The band was surrounded by their stalwart fans.

Or…

The farmer carried a sack of potatoes on his stalwart shoulders.

Wonderful Word Wednesday: Lissome

This week on WWW I offer you the word lissome. It is a simple and beautiful word used to describe something graceful and slender. Isn’t is better to say lissome instead of those two words. Sure, graceful is a nice word, and the same goes for slender… but why divide them with an and when you can just use one word that incorporates them both?

Here are some examples of using lissome in a sentence:

The horse was lissome as its mane glistened in the sun.

Or…

The lissome woman wandered towards the men on the other side of the room, eyeing the tallest of her companions before winking at him.
