The difference one word makes


What do you see in this picture? If you had to choose just one word to describe it, what would that word be?

Would it be BEGINNING?

People are always celebrating a FRESH START. Do you think this is what they envision?

A fresh start begins with destruction of what came before. Nothing begins fresh - even a tiny embryo carries a lifetime of baggage in its DNA. To change, we need to destroy.

Or we can look at this picture another way: destruction is the way the soil is prepared for new growth.

We seldom speak in just one word. We speak in long, flowing patterns of words. And yet, within those patterns there will be a word with oomph, a word that defines the mindset represented by our language. This word is the frame through which we see, the state the describes our experience.

If you had to choose just one word to jump from this picture, what word would you choose?
