Diane’s word for the week is equanimity, which means, according to Dictionary.com, “mental or emotional stability or composure, especially under tension or strain.” She’s going to need this to get through this week (and possibly this whole semester), so she has been learning different methods of relaxation to help.
I’ve been working with my counselor to gain some semblance of equanimity in my daily life.
Jasmine’s word for the week is dulcify, which means, according to Dictionary.com, “to make more agreeable; mollify; appease.” This matches her personality well because her sweet voice is best used when trying to entice someone to play with her (or give her an extra treat). She’s been using this tactic much more recently.
It’s not that I’m dulcifying for a malicious reason. I just like getting attention.
