One Word for me

I watched a movie the other day that talked about describing things in one word. I've heard this before. Maybe in a book I read, where the character wanted to figure out what her word was. I can't remember.

But I'm thinking about it for me. I think my one word changes from day to day, but today my word is

INTENSE.

It's kind of like passionate, but different. I'm an intense person. I just sweated my guts out in a two-hour work out because I want to get the most out of my time. When it's lunch time with the kiddos, I'm extremely focused and intense as I coordinate three different mouths who want to eat at the same time. Not to mention my own!

I don't think I'm a serious person at all, but I can be. When I'm working on an assignment, or housework, or a deadline, I'm intense.

What's your word?

A word? Just one? Oh boy...um... Lately, I think it would be "scattered". Or "blessed", or "purposeful". Oy...why just one? lol...

I've heard it's a good way to describe your character's motivations too. One word. For me I guess I'd say dynamic.

I think I'd have to say mine is driven. When I want something, or need to get something done, I'll stop at nothing....

Great word. That's a nice way to be.

Intense is a great word. My word for today would be...overwhelmed. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be Focused.

LOL Meg, you make me laugh. But it's more than just funny. You are VIVACIOUS.

Kari, I hear you. Tomorrow I'm going to be focused.

Other words apply on different days!

I can't think of a good word for me, but I like yours!

I picked a word for the year: embrace.

Good word, Mary!

I think you may be thinking of 'Eat, Pray, Love' by Eizabeth Gilbert as she is trying to figure out her word after a friend tells her that her word doesn't match the word of the place they're in (or something like that).

Since I read that I have tried to work out my word but haven't had any luck, thanks for reminding me about it. :)

You're right, Bethany! I did just watch that movie! That must've been on my mind!
