What’s Your -Ness?

I am rocking out to some dance-grooving tunes as I write this, in honor of Rockstar Spirit Designs who inspired this post.  The creator of Rockstar designs, Holly Bahr Roberts, made me a glorious necklace last week.  She asked me, “What’s your motto?  What would you like it to say?”  Oh, the fun began!  My wheels started turning and love was the first word coming to mind.  The word peace followed and also consciousness.  In examining those 3 words together, I realized that peace is a byproduct of love and high level conscious thinking.  That’s my drive – to share and be love and interact with life from a positive, conscious place.  In being those things, I create more peace in my life which also extends out in the community around me.

“So, what about the suffix -ness?”, was the next part of my internal dialogue.  I talk about conscious”ness” and find myself adding it onto other words (fun-ness, cooperative-ness,responsible-ness).  It’s because -ness is attached to words to form an abstract noun denoting quality and state.  That is why I like to add -ness to words.  It exemplifies and emphasizes that quality.  It’s being that thing.  I am love”ness” and conscious”ness”.  Therefore, the words on my necklace are ~

Love ~ Conscious ~ -Ness

Isn’t this an amazing necklace?!

What is your -Ness?  How do you want to exemplify who you are?  Consider making your own words.  Have fun with it!  Take words that are meaningful to you and add this suffix onto them.  Think about how you show that quality in your day-to-day life.  By defining it and adding your flair to it, you will find ways to be it more often.

Check out Holly’s amazing creations on Facebook!  Thank you Rockstar Spirit Designs for my necklace.

Synergistically yours,
