Engaging Each Day with Action Words

Circle. — 100 MommyVerbs

on March 6, 2013

100 mommyverbs

It seems a thing that should be celebrated.

100.  A milestone.

I’m not expecting a parade or ticker tape or balloons or cookies or even a freshly pressed circle for my sidebar.

But I’m taking a moment to celebrate. Taking a moment to reflect. It started with one action word: DEFINE.

“VERB: a word that characteristically is the grammatical center of a predicate and expresses an act, occurrence, or mode of being, that in various languages is inflected for agreement with the subject, for tense, for voice, for mood, or for aspect, and that typically has rather full descriptive meaning and characterizing quality but is sometimes nearly devoid of these especially when used as an auxiliary or linking verb”  Thanks Webster.

So, then…what’s a MommyVerb? … “a word that is characteristically the center of the family and expresses an act, a dream, an idea or a mode of being, that in various tones is inflicted for agreement with the day, events, schedules, chores, and that typically has a rather full descriptive meaning and characterizing quality.

In other words, a MommyVerb, to me represents a million different things that I do during a day as a part of being a Mom, an observer and an entrepreneur-wanna be.

Its all the things I do and want to do. 

Here’s a start. Let’s see what happens.

And here I am. 100 verbs later, circling back around.  Most days I’m spinning, moving too fast, searching for the center of all of these circles. But I’m motivated by action. I’m obsessed with their definitions and implications. These verbs not only define my days, they tell my story.

I see them everywhere.

In every conversation.  In every situation. In every emotion. In every frustration. In every complication.

In every intention. In every motivation.

And since circles, in their very being have no beginning and no ending, they are the perfect backdrop, the perfect badge. Because they are all about movement. All about Action.
And while a journey starts with a single step. A blog starts with a single word. Just write down one word. One. Word.

Then click on one of my new favorite verbs: Publish.

(and repeat.)
