(Commencement means both “the ceremony of conferring degrees or granting diplomas at the end of the academic year” and also “an act or instance of commencing; beginning,” reflecting an earlier use of the word. It comes from the Latin cominitiāre (“to begin”).
Recrudescence means “breaking out afresh or into renewed activity.” As the Latin root suggests, this word was first used in medical contexts to describe a recurrence of symptoms after a period of remission, but it later took on a more rosy sense referring to the revival of something good.)
I'm still dealing with activities from years past including 2022. So new beginnings doesn't quite capture the activities that will carry over in 2023. New beginnings is also 2 words not one, lol.
So I've decided on the word 'Start'. I think it will capture both activities that are on-going from prior years and any new activities related to house, home and family. To start or begin, tells me it is good to just begin. By beginning something, anything large or small, things get done. Start also gives grace not to have to complete something in a given time frame. Start also gives flexibility to deal with new things that arise. I'm excited to see the year unfold and to 'start'. Have you set your goals or selected your word for 2023? I'd love to hear it.
