Definition of Strong

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

A few years ago I used to choose one word to focus on during the year. I had forgotten about that tradition when I started writing goals for the year. But I was reminded of this tradition from another SparkFriend and thought I wanted to do this again. Sometimes it is just easier to remember one word than try and focus on a whole list of goals.

So my word for this year is: STRONG (definition with help from
1. having, showing, or able to exert great bodily or muscular power; physically vigorous or robust: A strong 62 year old lady
2. accompanied or delivered by great physical, mechanical, etc., power or force: a strong handshake; With one strong blow the lady knocked out her attacker
3. mentally powerful or vigorous: She may be old, but her mind is still strong.
4. especially able, competent, or powerful in a specific field or respect: She's very strong in nursing skills. She's weak at throwing, but she's a strong runner.
5. of great moral power, firmness, or courage: strong under stress.
6. powerful in influence, authority, resources, or means of prevailing or succeeding: a strong leader.
7. aggressive; willful: a strong personality.

These are just a few definitions of strong that I like. The examples are my own (qualities I hope to aspire to)

    What a great word, Strong! I love how all of your examples were women, I get so tired of everything good being applied to men and everything bad applied to women.

    Strong ~ a great word. I love all the definitions. Something we need to work at when we can, so that when we need it, its already there. Yes, I really like your choice of words. Happy New Year, Joann. May 2013 be your best, and strongest, year ever. emoticon
