Day 17: Dictionary

So today’s task was to find a word in a dictionary and define it, and since I only have French dictionaries, I found a French word.

The word I have is bonheur, this word means happiness, joy, pleasure and delight. It could also mean luck and fortune. When I first saw this word, I saw the literal translation as a good time, because bon means good and heur means time, so to me it means a good time, which in itself brings joy, happiness and pleasure. For me bonheur is calling my friend after a hard day at work and just talking it through and being encouraged. Bonheur is finding the perfect book and reading it in the private roof terrace in a guest house in Marrakech. Bonheur is spending time writing my wonderful blog and getting excited about the next topic and thinking about it the whole day. Bonheur is finally finishing a portrait that I have been working on for hours or finish cooking a meal. Saying the word itself brings me bonheur.


Thank you for reading.
