A WORDsmithy Wednesday That's Hoppin'


I have decided to change it up a bit today. Instead of having a WORDLESS WEDNESDAY, especially since I have so much trouble complying, that I'd like to do a Wordsmithy day.

What's a WORDSMITHY day? Well, for starters

word·smith
ˈwərdˌsmiTH/
noun
  1. a skilled user of words.

I love the sound of that, don't you? And I really love words. So today I am going to discuss the word EMPATHY because we do NOT have enough of it in the world today. Empathy is one of those things we need to ALL GET ALONG. When you EMPATHIZE with someone, you understand what they feel. You might even FEEL what they feel. And in the end, you are more compassionate about others and how they feel.

I was trawling around Facebook today and someone I loves loves loves posted this fantastic video about, of all things, the WORD I had chosen for today's blog - EMPATHY. Take a look. I think it is brilliant.



Okay, MAYBE I like this video because it has Mark Ruffalo, The Incredible Hulk/ Dr. Bannon. But maybe. . .

It just sang to me. I really try to be empathetic and understand everypuggy. If we all tried this now and then the world would certainly be a better place for all. And imagine - no more wars based on cultural or religious differences. It wouldn't help the economic wars, unfortunately. . .

But. . . every little bit helps.

EMPATHY
