Flexuous – Wordplay Wednesday™ 01/08/2020

Learning Life One Word at a Time 

With the whole year and new decade in front of us, some are choosing to fill out their schedules, carefully organizing and scripting months, or even years in advance.

You may have been that kind of person in the last decade, but have you decided, like many others, to reexamine your life and fill it with more spontaneity? You have opted to be …

FLEXUOUS (fleksʹyōō ɘs, flekʹshōō-) adj. – winding or wavering (adv. – flexuously). [WW #250*]

Although “winding” and “wavering” could be construed as weak definitions, I prefer to consider this week’s word reminiscent of 50 years ago—the psychedelic Seventies—when we preferred life to flow, rather than program every move. “Go with the flow” became a mantra as we lived flexuously and freely.

If I were to offer a prophecy at this auspicious time of year, I would predict that more people will opt for personal freedom from restricted schedules, creating a more flexuous and fulfilling life. Will you be among them? Or will you continue to adhere to a constrained (and often inhibited) lifestyle?

The choice is yours … as it always is … what does your heart and intuition urge? New mantra: Follow your heart and trust your intuition.

Word Challenge: FLEXUOUS. Consider your writing opportunities with a winding and wavering flow, as you fit flexuous into your week of wanderlust 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)
