Word of the Year







I am not sure why LESSONS is the one that attracts me but it is the one I keep coming back to.

  1. 1.
    an amount of teaching given at one time; a period of learning or teaching.
    "an advanced lesson in math"
    period of instruction
    period of teaching
    period of coaching
    period of tutoring
    period of schooling
    school task
    school work
    • a thing learned or to be learned by a student.
      "he had a facility for languages and had learned his lessons well"
    • a thing learned by experience.
      "the tragedy is a lesson in disappointment"
    • an occurrence, example, or punishment that serves or should serve to warn or encourage.
      "let that be a lesson to you!"
  2. 2.
    a passage from the Bible read aloud during a church service, especially either of two readings at morning and evening prayer in the Anglican Church.
    "he went up to read the first lesson"
    Bible reading
    Bible passage
3rd person present: lessons
  1. instruct or teach (someone).
    "Metaneone had beforehand lessoned him what he should say"
    • admonish or rebuke (someone).
      "Oedipus has been lessoned to humility before the throne of Zeus"

There are many other words associated with it and though I tend to think of lessons as things I learn perhaps it is more complicated than that or maybe it is an indicator that I need to focus on improving my mind in 2021 in order to stave off dementia which is the most common cause of death for the females in the Marois clan.

Wow run-on sentence or what?

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't. If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time. Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a  fear  of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic  fears  the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public. Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment:

My Fair Lady

Eliza Doolittle Day is celebrated by fans of the musical  My Fair Lady , a musical based off of George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play  Pygmalion . In the musical, Eliza Doolittle is a  Cockney  flower girl who wants to learn to speak properly. At the time the story takes place, proper speech was a symbol of upward mobility and education. Eliza meets Professor Henry Higgins in  Covent Garden  and he agrees to give her  elocution  lessons. Higgins believes he can transform her from someone who uses words like "ain't" to someone who can fit in with London's elite. In the musical, Eliza dreams of meeting the king. She sings a song, "Just You Wait," to share her thoughts. It is in the song that the date for Eliza Doolittle Day comes from: One day I’ll be famous! I’ll be proper and prim; Go to St. James so often I will call it St. Jim! One evening the king will say: 'Oh, Liza, old thing, I want all of England your praises to sing. Next week on the twentieth of M

Emotional Intelligence - What it is?

 F or those unfamiliar, emotional intelligence is a self-governing initiative to make healthy assessments about how our minds influence quality   behaviour . Such assessments help us to better understand our minds and reduce emotions harmful, yet natural effect on our thoughts and   behaviour . Like the sensory systems, the emotional coping mechanisms you have are not good or bad mostly they just need retuning or at least mine does. Over the next 4 weeks, I'll be looking into each section of Emotional Intelligence and sharing what I find with you. Self-Awareness: The core of Emotional Intelligence is self-awareness. Self-awareness is comprised of three competencies; emotional self-awareness, where you are able to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on work performance and relationships; accurate self-assessment, where you are able to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations; self-confidence, where you have a positive and strong s
