Word of the day :: Alacrity

BloggingSamantha WetterholmComment

I am so excited to share with you my new blogging series - Word Of The Day. I will be sharing a word which resonates with me and on which I want to focus. I hope to be inspired to live more thoughtfully and purposely while ruminating on this week’s word of the day.

[uh-lak-ri-tee] - noun; origin - Latin

1. cheerful readiness, promptness, or willingness.

2. liveliness; briskness.

Syn - eagerness; fervor; zeal.

This week’s word of the day reminds me of the importance of living enthusiastically and with eagerness. It becomes easy to dread what may come and to hide in the shadows instead of focusing on the positive. Sometimes, all it takes an attitude shift. I may not be able to change how things turn out or what will happen, but I can definitely change my reactions and attitude. I will focus on approaching situations with alacrity and I will be receptive to accept new challenges. 

What does alacrity mean to you? What is your word of the day?
