Word of the Week – 9/5/14

Thank you so much for continuing to share and to link up. I love reading everyone’s chosen words, and it’s great to see so many familiar linkers, as well as new ones each week.

If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. Come join in! All that I ask is that if you link up, you link back to me, and visit a handful of other blogs and comment on their words.

My word of the week this week is:


I am literally bursting with it this week! If you read my post from a few days ago, you’ll know that I’ve made a big decision, and since making it, I’ve been like the proverbial bottle of pop! I’ve got so much done, both in writing posts for the blog (I’m all scheduled up for a week now!), writing pieces for elsewhere, making contact with an array of people that I’m hoping to be able to work with in some form or another and it’s already paying off, as I’ve some really exciting opportunities coming through. Funnily enough, by closing my cards business, it’s also given me a fresh enthusiasm for it, as I’m selling a lot this month! It’ll be nice to go out in style. And on the family front, my gardening enthusiasm continues to bloom, and I’ve been making more of an effort to try new foods and recipes, and am feeling enthusiastic about the new foodie journey I’m about to embark upon – I will blog it, of course 😉 And I even summoned up some enthusiasm for a de-clutter and wardrobe clear-out, so I am feeling more organised and tidy now, too.

What about you? What one word sums up your week best? Please grab the badge, link up and share…..

    1. Yes, I think you’re right, Alexandra. Probably the best time of he year for it! Thank you very much 🙂

  1. Brilliant to get that burst of energy that comes from honing in on what it is you want to be doing – not least because it confirms that the decision to make a change was the right one! Looking forward to hearing all about your exciting new ventures x

  2. Exciting times ahead! I’m constantly amazed you manage to do all that you do as it is, so not at all surprised you’re making some changes. I look forward to seeing how these come along in the weeks and months ahead. Good luck and enjoy! x

    1. Very exciting! Something needed to give, and it just felt like I was at a bit of a crossroads, so let’s hope I’ve gone the right way! Thanks very much x

  3. Wow I am feeling enthused just by your post! You sound like your storming ahead with all your ideas, can’t wait to see what happens for you. Good luck! X

    1. Glad to pass on some enthusiasm! I’ve made a start at least, so I feel like I’m going somewhere now. We will see! Thank you x

    1. Thank you. I try to find positives in most weeks, even if there are a few days in them that are really tough. Not always possible, but certainly has been this week 🙂

  4. Sounds like you have a plan and nothing is going to steer you off course! Enthusiasm is priya positive, uptempo word and the “ism”ending suggests its here to stay. Best of luck with your new venture xx 

  5. It’s amazing what you can get done when you have the will and enthusiasm isn’t it? I have days when I do so much and ones when I don’t. Think sometimes though that you need both for a bit of balance.

    1. I think you’re so right. I struggle to slow down and rest as I feel I’m ‘wasting time’, but I do think we have to do this to recharge sometimes.
