When I run, I think. Last night I was thinking about the turmoil in our world – the terrorist attacks in our country and abroad, the conflict between our elected representatives and the folks they’re supposed to represent, the wave of anger that sometimes feels like it’s going to drown our country…it was pretty dark. The four letter word that seems to be most prevalent in all of those conditions seems to be hate, a word that I try not to use.
As the miles started ticking off, I began considering all of the other four letter words that I’m more inclined to use and realized how many of them have positive, even joyous, connotations. As I started listing them in my head I knew I needed to jot them down for the days that feel dark and populated by those who would rather hate than love. Here are my top 50, in alphabetical order. You know, because I’m a librarian and all.
What are your essential four-letter words?

I love your list Silvia!💋
Love this list and blog…what immediately comes to mind are….hugs, wine, tune, cats, dogs
Thanks, both of you! Words are so important and I was really surprised to find how many of my favorites were 4-letter ones. I didn’t use plurals, but if I had, boys and dogs would certainly have made the list!
