It's very easy to get caught up in whatever is happening without really noticing what's happening. That's why today's word was "pause." Just cold-stopping whatever you're doing to pay attention to what's right in front of you.
We have plans to go to one of my favorite restaurants tonight. So my mind is on looking forward to that. I wanted a word to express the feeling, but the English language did not want to cooperate. So I had to make my own.
I already used the word "new" for January, but the thing that kept coming to mind is that it's a new month. Another chance to start again. So I landed on the word "again" as a unique reminder of how we can always start over.
