This post begins a series that I hope to continue through the lifetime of my blog, and it’s a series filled with small things you can do to love yourself a little more, even on your worst days.
Today’s post credit goes out to the one and only Julia Pusateri, who has helped me through my own journey of self discovery and love.
Sometimes you just need to sit down and occupy yourself in any way, shape or form in order to forget the day you just had. So here is a short list of obscure words you may have never come across, but which are just the words you may sometimes feel yourself struggling to find.
Paralian: A person who lives near the sea
Eumoirous: Happiness due to being honest and wholesome
Aubade: A love song sung at dawn
Sabaism: The worship of stars
Mimp: To speak in a prissy manner
Dwale:To mutter deliriously
Aureate: The fancy or flowery words used by poets
Acosmist: One who believes that nothing exists
Monachopsis: The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place
Opia: The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable
Sonder: The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own
Rubatosis: The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat
Kenopsia: The eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually busy but is now abandoned
