Redivivus – Wordplay Wednesday™ 01/01/2020

“Hindsight is 20/20.” What Will You Do with 2020’s Insight? 

Yes, a New Year can be exciting and invigorating. But this week we’re facing a double whammy! A New Year and a New Decade**2020 … a great time to recall the adage, “Hindsight is 20/20.”

Looking back can be scary; but it can also give you great insight to how you can revitalize your life in the New Year … New Decade … what will you do with it?

Whatever you want … it’s your once-in-a-decade opportunity to be …

REDIVIVUS (redʹi vīʹvɘs) adj. – restored to life; reborn; reincarnated: usually used metaphorically. [Pronounced red uh vi-vus; WW #249*]

At least once, before you reengage with reality after the Holidays, take some time for yourself. If that includes writing, work redivivus into your fiction, nonfiction, or blog. Where will it take you?

We all deserve a “second chance” at our resolutions—and that may be for the third, fourth, or tenth time! Hindsight’s insights can offer foresight. It’s called renewal …

Periodically, your body, mind, spirit and soul need refreshing. Why not now? Make 2020 a whole year of redivivus living.

Life is SO big …and yet, so small. Time makes decisions for us all. And timing is everything.

Word Challenge: REDIVIVUS. Happy New Year, New Decade, and CHEERS to you and yours as you fit redivivus into your week of restorative writings.

Learning knows no prejudices or boundaries, and it isn’t fattening! Expanding your mind is a no-cost, simple joy. Do you feel that way too? What’s your inspiration? Share your creative genius and Wordplay Wednesday comments below.

Write first for yourself … only then can you write for others. (L.Rochelle)
