Word Nerd: Berserk

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsyberserk definition Word Nerd via LaWhimsyBerserk is such a fun word to use – I mean saying one is going totally berserk just sounds awesome, though I suppose the reality may not be quite the same. Berserk even looks slightly frenzied in it’s spelling and sounds it in it’s pronunciation. Certainly, berserk is a rather simple word but it’s one I think gets far to little usage.

Things have been going a bit berserk on my end over the past few weeks, but being able to use the word berserk to describe it does make it a bit easier…just a bit!

Word Nerd: Wifty

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsywifty defintion Word Nerd via LaWhimsyWifty is a fun word that can easily be used interchangeably with ditzy since they mean the same things – impractical, flighty, or unfocused. Wifty is a slang term, and one I find to be endearing, since I am a ditz. Seriously, my mind wanders and follows it’s own courses of thought which can lead to me saying the oddest things at the most bizarre times, making me come across as quite wifty. A wifty soul is often one that means well, but can sometimes get a bit distracted.

So do you know of any wifty people in your life or are you perhaps one yourself?

Monday Mantra 124 – The hardest step she ever took was to blindly trust in who she was.

The hardest step she ever took was to blindly trust in who she was. Atticus quote Monday Mantra 124 via LaWhimsy“The hardest step she ever took was to blindly trust in who she was.”~ Atticus

Being true to who and what you are takes a leap of faith, a sort of blind, all-consuming trust that so long as you listen to your inner guide you will be alright. Safe. You. In a world that longs to twist, control, mold, define, and confuse you to what your inner voice knows with complete certainty, the hardest, most difficult choice and step you can take is to blindly trust wholly in yourself. You know YOU, and you do know what is best for you. It’s a courageous, almost subversive move to trust so wholly in YOU and yet by doing just that you align with your life, and you align with your path in a way that enlightens and engages you completely. Take that step, no matter how impossible, difficult, or even lonely it may seem. In the end you’ll see that it made all the difference and it was actually the best choice you ever made.
