Use Your Words - Jan 2015

You may be looking for Pearl and William's saga continued but I'm taking a break this month. Doing something a little different but never fear, they will return next month. A celebration of 1 year and a special surprise. I know, you think you have it all figured out, but remember I like to keep you on your toes!

Today’s post is "Use Your Words" a writing challenge. This is how it works: bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to create into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now...

Your words are: Unassuming  ~ Perspective ~ Bemused ~ Aberration
They were submitted by:    

I'm going to do something different for the first time in a year. Yep, no Pearl and William. I'm saving a big special for February :)

Unassuming: means modest, not arrogant, pleasant or polite.
That is what I want, an unassuming man. Someone who is pleasant, polite and NOT arrogant. Is there such a thing?

Perspective: a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something.
My aunt said to me: why are you smiling?
My response was why not? I'm alive, well and have a new future to look forward to. WHY would I not smile? It is all about perspective I guess. I see a bright future and she sees my bleak past. I prefer my perspective over hers any day.

Bemused: puzzled, confused, perplexed, baffled, mystified
My life has bemused me in the last several months, confused me, puzzled me, baffled me but then I realized that somethings are not meant for us to understand and I read a quote a few days ago that said "there are two days you can't change. Yesterday and tomorrow so live for today" this is a great philosophy in order to get over a bemused life.

Aberration: a departure of what is normal, usual or expected, typically one that is unwelcome. Example: "they described the outbreak of violence in the area as an aberration"

OH MAN! My life became an aberration in September of 2014, it bemused me, changed me from unassuming to one of siding on caution and then I changed my perspective on the whole situation.

Stay tuned next month for the return of Pearl and William...
