Hi hearters!

I've wanted to write this article for some time now
I'm from Mexico so my first language is spanish, I learned english when I was six years old thanks to all the disney movies that I use to watch, since I was a kid I just enjoyed the english language and I always kept in touch with it, from movies, to music, sitcoms, then I just moved to tumblr where I started writing in english too, not just reading or listening.

I've always been fascinated by the english language from their expressions, to their words and even the word play is so much fun and witty, I've realized along the years english has some very specific words for feelings or just objects in general, and I love that very much

for example in spanish the word extraño has different meanings depending on the context of the conversation , it can mean:

  • I miss you / te extraño
  • That was weird / Eso fue extraño
  • It was some stranger / Era un extraño

So... today I'm sharing my favorite words with you and the reason behind why I like them ♡

Embrace

To accept something enthusiastically
palm trees, pink, and summer image couple, love, and city image flowers image girl, beach, and summer image
This word is so beautiful to me, it makes me think of all those quotes that tell you to embrace life, the word embrace makes me think of something warm, it feels like a hug, with confidence and positive vibes

Joyful

Very happy
sunflower, flowers, and yellow image yellow, aesthetic, and guitar image flowers, yellow, and indie image girl, autumn, and fall image
The meaning may be simple but I just love the fact that is one word that indicates more happiness, unlike spanish with muy feliz or muy alegre

Gorgeous

Very beautiful or pleasant
blue, house, and flowers image flowers, pretty, and roses image nature, spider, and water image flowers and love image
I love to use this word to describe things, beautiful just simply isn't enough sometimes :)

Tchotchke

A small decorative object
paris, flowers, and france image photography, postcards, and letters image beautiful, vintage, and joyas image books, delicate, and feminine image
idk if its english but I know engish speakers use it, a tchotchke is the things that aren't really useful but are pleasent to look at and we can't just throw out

Selfless

Caring more for what other people need and want rather than for what you yourself need and want

Such a wonderful thing to be, I love this word its so especific and positive

Overwhelming

I find this word very useful to express how im feeling

girl, car, and hair image fun and light image fun, summer, and swimming image girl, flowers, and indie image

Outgrow

I love this word so much we simply don't have something like that in my language, and it's very useful to explain moving on from people or places

such an useful adjective :)

also a powerful and positive word, it makes me think of getting back up, fighting and conquering

makes me think of soft feelings, tranquil spaces and nice moments
