Compassion

, August 12, 2013

Merriam-Webster’s dictionary has been and continues to be our source of reference. This week we approach the term COMPASSION. COMPASSION: sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.  I have found myself in need of COMPASSION on many occasions.  On one of those occasions several years ago, I suffered from a […]

Buoyant

, August 4, 2013

This week we will earnestly attempt to tackle the word BUOYANT.  Although there are at least three approved definitions by our preferred dictionary, Merriam-Webster, we found that they clearly depict it as the ability to rise above, be cheerful while doing it and maintaining it at a satisfactory high level.  We typically do not embrace all of […]

Distracted

This week the topic is DISTRACTED.  DISTRACTED is a common term of which most individuals think they have a firm grasp.  Distract as defined by Merriam-Webster means to draw or direct (as one’s attention) to a different object or in different directions at the same time.  Likewise using deductive reasoning the individual with average intelligence and run […]

Impact

, July 8, 2013

This week we will try  to approach the term IMPACT.  Merriam-Webster defines IMPACT as the force of impression of one thing on another : a significant or major effect.  I approach this week’s term without pause, for every deed done leaves an impression, positive or negative.  The key is to leave a positive impression where ever you go […]

Regret

This week we here at SSTMT would like to explore a term that everyone can relate to but we must all learn to minimize. The word this week is REGRET.  REGRET as defined by Merriam-Webster reflects sorrow aroused by circumstances beyond one’s control or power to repair. REGRET a familiar emotion to every knuckle head […]

Need

, May 13, 2013

This week we will explore the term Need.  As usual we must speak from a singular definition to add clarity or purpose for our message and Merriam-Webster defines Need as: a condition requiring supply or relief.  This condition is common unto humanity for there isn’t a man alive that has not suffered from Need.  According […]

Cost

, April 29, 2013

This week I would like to explore the term COST.  Merriam-Webster defines the term as loss or penalty incurred especially in gaining something.  This is the part of most endeavors that many fail to count.  The COST can uniquely assist in the decision making process.  I have a few friends that found themselves behind bars (not […]

Hurt

, April 8, 2013

This week we would like to expose the term HURT, and as usual we’ll define it by the Merriam-Webster definition: to suffer pain or grief. Getting older, I decided that I had better start fighting the battle of the bulge more vigorously. I got the ingenious idea to ride my bicycle while walking my 115 […]

Life

, March 26, 2013

This week we would like to expose the the term LIFE.  Merriam-Webster’s dictionary has the ability to provoke a fit in me as I read the definitions.  Words can inspire if given a moment to clarify.   LIFE as defined by one of Merriam-Webster multiple descriptions means a specified period of animate and inanimate existence.  A car […]
