Word Witch Entry

Here are 3 rare and beautiful words that resonate with me currently…

Querencia :houses: :hearts:

Pronounced Kwi-ren-Chi-yA

A word of Spanish Origin, meaning a place where you feel strong, safe and at home. It could also be your “happy place,” which often has more to do with a specific person or people than a specific location… Think of the phrase “home is where your heart is” and it sums up this word perfectly.

Eudaimonia :relieved: :airplane:

Pronounced U-de-'mOn-E-a

A word of Greek Origin, meaning “human flourishing”; a contented state of being happy, healthy and prosperous. Often attributed to the happiness one feels whilst travelling and broadening their horizons @TheTravelWitch one for you? :thinking:

Novaturient :fireworks: :zap:

Pronounced nO-va-tUr-E-ent

A word deriving from the Latin word Novus (meaning innovation), meaning to desire or seek powerful change in your life, behaviour or a certain situation. This word applies when soul searching or when you want to break free from your current lifestyle.

Love & Light :stonehenge: :heartpulse: :candle:

These are great, I only knew the first one, querencia, but I hadn’t heard it in a long time. Thanks for that! It reminds me of the Enligsh concept of “TLC”. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
