The journey is long. I have many things to learn and assimilate along the way. How can I not transform? Of course there are values and Essence that Endure —love, connection, sincerity. I joined Facebook circa 2008 and have since been reacquainted with middle and high school friends. It amazes and inspires me how we were our core selves at that early age, and we remain so even now. It’s so obvious, yet so profound. As I continue to Explore and discover, I must allow myself to integrate, to Evolve—to become ever more who I am meant to be.
Dictionary.com: “1. High spirits; exhilaration; exuberance. 2. A boiling over; overflow.”
Ebullience inspires. It draws people near and ignites positive Energy. If I want to do good, if I want to be a positive influence—to lead—then I need people to want to follow me. I can only Exude Ebullience if I tap my own passion—that for which I will wholeheartedly invest Endless Energy and time, Evokative Emotion and service, to see through. My Enthusiasm should be palpable and contagious.
My words can lift and launch—if I choose them Effectively. Eloquent does not mean Erudite or Esoteric (Thank you, Mrs. Summers, English teacher and SAT vocabulary Extraordinaire). It need only be honest, authentic, appropriate, and Exact. The more I learn, absorb, process, and Embrace, the more I appreciate how all that I do is connected. And, I stand bound to all of humanity and universal Existence. I speak and write to address the core compassion that threads us all, binding us inExtricably. I do this because I see it as the noblest path to world peace.
Merriam-Webster: “The distinguishing character, sentiment, moral nature, or guiding beliefs of a person, group, or institution.”
It’s not about fame, reputation, or legacy. It’s about knowing and owning all of who I am, about living consistently and with integrity. All who know me should know the real me, the same me—they should all have me in common. The whole me will Encompass my flaws. I may behave Erratically at times. However, my core character should be readily and unEquivocally Evident upon Engaging me in any meaningful way.
Universe, please grant me the Energy to sustain this mission of contribution.
This was fun, friends! Who knew there were so many Excellent ‘E’ words!?
