Restore and Resonate…both linked, rubbing up against the other like lovers or at the very least, good friends. They dance together.
I was taking a stroll with a friend who said, walking in nature really restores him. I said how his remark resonated right down to my socks.
Both words then circled my mind like an endless strip of tape.
Restore…to return something or someone to its former condition…recover, repair, mend, replant. Fortify, freshen, revive and regenerate. To bring back to a place of peace and wellness the way one feels after a good, long sleep.
Resonate…to produce or be filled with a full, deep reverberating sound. Evoke, echo, inspire and kindle. Spur, spark prompt or prod. Stimulate, jump-start…awaken and electrify emotions though dormant, already in play not unlike a song once heard.
It could also be considered a wake-up call…
an real old-fashioned kick in the pants.
I love how both words roll off your tongue, their tone so pleasing in the way they were meant to sound.
Words in general can resuscitate and refresh, trigger and galvanize healthy feelings waiting to be called upon to do their magic.
Language broken down restores and resonates making us who we were truly meant to be.
Articulate, engaging, expressive and poised.
