Word Nerd: Sanguine

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsySanguine definition via Word Nerd by LaWhimsySanguine feels like such an apt and decidedly needed word right now. Despite all of the chaos, the disappointment, the unsettling upset that is pervading so many, there is the ability to have a certain sort of sanguine mindset. To be sanguine, or optimistically hopeful in an apparently terrible and difficult situation is exactly what we must choose to be. How else can we help to create a positive, bright future? By banding together with a sanguine hope we can still be the change we all want to see -The kind of change that no bigotry, no ignorance, no misogyny, no bullying can create nor can it stop. That is my sanguine mindset amidst this utter nonsensical claptrap. I choose to remain hopeful that good can still come and that our dawn is still on the horizon (albeit a little further, say 4 years or so, away).

Hope always wins out, and even in the darkest of times, the sanguine shall rise and lead the way to the light.

Namaste ~ Ella
