The English language is often lacking in words to describe one’s state of mind, deep feelings or ideas. Lucky for us, other languages do a much better job at verbalizing these for us, and I found a list that I can see myself referencing many times in the future. How nice it is to have a word for “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what; A yearning for a far, familiar, non-earthly land one can identify as one’s home. (Sehnsucht (n) Origin: German)
Check out the rest of the words, and see if you can relate at all to any of them. I wrote down my favorites in my journal to keep on hand…in fact, I think I found the perfect word to call my journal, LOL…Vagary (n) Origin: Latin – An unpredictable instance; a wandering journey; A whimsical, wild, or unusual idea, desire, or action.
