Inner Growth Word of the Day: Describe


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (v.) 1. to represent or give an account of in words.  2. to represent by a figure, model, or picture.


Describe in a sentence: How you describe things says a lot about your view of the world and yourself.


Describe in action: When you outline or paint a picture of something, using words to communicate that thought or idea or person, that is to describe.


Describe and inner growth: Exploring how you describe things is brings inner growth because it shares insights into your world in a way that you are not always aware of on a conscious level.  Once you are you can fully accept or choose to mold those thoughts as you see fit for you and your heart.


Describe and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I describe my day to day to others? When I describe something or someone, what are the typical words I use?  How has the way I describe something affected how I see that something?  Why is what I describe in detail important for me to get so specific with in my description?  What are some of the biggest takeaways I’ve had from moments of reflection on the way I describe people?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with describe at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. Next think of the first time you took a close look at how you describe people and use the words from your list to write about this moment.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about when you describe something or someone, notice what initials emotions come about and how they flow; then include in your thoughts important things and people that you describe. Pay close attention to how your feelings change, how your emotions flow, and if there are any common patterns.
