Do you remember reading the book in Elementary School? Besides the fact that my 10 year-old-self was proud of reading a chapter book, I fell in love with this story.
It was about a boy who came up with a new word for “pen”, and he managed to convince a bunch of people to start using his new word instead. As a young writing nerd, I thought that this idea was just the coolest thing ever .
And as I’ve grown older, I’m continually fascinated by words and their meaning.
Especially when we don’t have a word in the English language that can convey certain feelings. Here’s a great list of words that other languages use, but can’t be directly translated into English .
As an emotional person , I constantly find myself unable to fully express the depth of what I feel.
And I realized over time that I couldn’t find a way to describe the type of incredible change I longed to create in the world. I learned that not only did I want to fulfill my dharma and bring my dreams into reality, but I wanted to support others on their personal journeys as well. I wanted to create exponential dreaming. I wanted to ignite explosive positivity and action that would seep into the lives of thousands of people. But I didn’t have a way to describe this incredible thought in my mind.
