words of the week – refocusing

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.

and finally

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.
