A weekly feature where I present three weird and wonderful words on a particular theme or time of year.
This week I am refocusing on my goals and restructuring my priorities, so our first word is
Rue – Bitterly regret (something one has done or allowed to happen) and wish it undone.
What better time to refocus on your goals than when you rue an impetuous decision?
Actuate – make (someone) act in a particular way.
New focus and outlook on life can be actuated by rue.
Stalwart – marked by outstanding strength and vigor of body, mind, or spirit.
One would hope that a person actuated towards new goals by rue would be stalwart in their outlook upon their new adventures.
