Do you do Word of The Year?
I have been picking a “word of the year” for about 5 years now.
2020’s word: SISU
SISU: Extraordinary determination, courage, and resoluteness in the face of extreme adversity. An action mindset that enables individuals to see beyond their present limitations and into what might be.
Taking action against the odds and reaching beyond observed capacities. An integral element of Finnish culture, and also a universal capacity for which the potential exists within all individuals.
My Finnish Great Grandparents would be honored to know part of their story lives in the cells of my story. SISU is a noun, but I prefer it as a verb, expressed in how I live my life and show up every damn day!
