Do It with Aplomb

I love the way this word rolls off my tongue.

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.

Thank you!


I wrote an actual book, and you can own it! How cool is that?
