There are some words that I enjoy using simply because of the delightful way they roll off the tongue. Aplomb is one such word. It feels round and abundant to me, as if a shiny red apple is coming out of my mouth. Aplomb.
For those unfamiliar with the word, here’s the definition according to Merriam-Webster:
\ ə-ˈpläm , -ˈpləm \
Complete and confident composure or self-assurance : poise.
(Poise is another great word, but I digress.)
My wish for you, dear reader, is that whatever you do today, even if it’s just taking a nap or washing the dishes, you do it with aplomb. Because if you are awesome enough to read this blog, then you are already wonderful. I can say that with aplomb.
