Word of the Week: Agathist

Pronunciation: AG-uh-thist

noun:  from Greek-derived agath- (good): a person who believes all things tend toward ultimate good.

I’ve been called a lot of things in life, but I’ve never been called an “agathist”. However, now that I know what it means, I would truly embrace this title over my life.

I guess it’s a lot like an optimist. You know… “the glass is half full” kind of guy. It’s really a great way to live. I have an overwhelming belief that ALL THINGS have a way of working together for my good… even the tough stuff. I read it once here and it’s truly stuck with me.

In addition to that, one of my favorite sayings is that “Hindsight is 20/20”. I’ve lived it for so long… I have learned to preach it!

Trust me… eventually it will all make sense. Enjoy the ride and be an agathist. Life’s too short!
