1. The Words That Touch Your Soul | 52 Lists

1. The words that touch my soul:

  • peace 
  • calm
  • quiet
  • light
  • color
  • sunshine
  • warmth
  • life 
  • love
  • family
  • home
  • stories
  • memories

To make my list, I said the word aloud, and if I had a good feeling about the word, it went on my list. There was a long list of things, so I narrowed it down to the ones I had the strongest feelings for. It was a meaningful exercise because it brought these things to my conscious awareness. For example, knowing that I crave light helps me to be aware of how much sunshine I get — even inside the house. If I can sit in front of a sunny window, I will. In fact, when it's time to read aloud, the kids will get my chair ready for me! 

Anyway, for fun, I pulled out a thesaurus so I could "dress up" my list and give it a little flair — IEW style!

The words with style that touch my soul:-)

  • tranquility
  • serenity 
  • stillness
  • rainbow
  • daylight 
  • toasty
  • living
  • charity
  • kindred
  • hearth
  • testimonies
  • accounts
  • reminiscence 

For life, I was going to use flora or fauna, but I couldn't decide between the two and living won out over be or being. What would you have picked? Color was a hard one too. Rainbow won out over hue because I love the colors of the rainbow, but hue was growing on me.
