For the past couple of weeks I’ve been thinking of a word and trying to keep that word in mind as I walk my way through the day. Sometimes I come up with the word the evening before, in a restless moment during that night’s sleep, or in the morning.

A word pops in my head and I go with it. Today’s word is: Fortify.

Strength. Strengthen. Be strong. Fortify your thoughts, your person, your family. Fortify your faith. These are a few of the associations I have with this word, which is not one I typically use. But it’s still morning. There may be more applications of this word to my day as I move along.

Working backward from today, here are the words I’ve used for each day:

Dream.

Faith. (A definition I came up with while using this word: Faith is belief in action.)

Passion.

Trust.

Breath. (Breathe.)

Calm.

Joy.

Understanding.

Love.

Gratitude.

Positivity.

Wait.

Warmth.

Patience.

Listen.
