Every year for the past 4 or so I’ve chosen a word for the year. It’s something that my Journaling Mentor turned me onto. The word that I choose for the year is a word that would work both consciously and subconsciously in my life. A word that would be my focus or essence of the coming year. This year’s word is Vehement.
1. zealous; ardent; impassioned: a vehement defense; vehement enthusiasm.
2. characterized by rancor or anger; violent: vehement hostility.
3. strongly emotional; intense or passionate: vehement desire.
4. marked by great energy or exertion; strenuous: vehement clapping.
Vehement has many meanings (obviously, as seen above), and of them, the one meaning I don’t want it to mean for me this year is “characterized by rancor or anger”. The meanings I do want it to have are: zealous; ardent; impassioned. I want to be vehement about everything that I do and everything that I’m involved in.
