word or phrase to add to your army.
Sanguine (sang-gwen) is another one of those words with multiple meanings. On the surface, it means blood-red, which kind of makes it sound less than nice. But, it has another meaning, which is more commonly used, and that is to describe someone who is bright, optimistic, and cheerful, even in the worst of circumstances.
Sanguine people are also sometimes called "Pollyannas" and said to always look through "rose-colored glasses" which kind of goes back to the whole red thing. A person who is sanguine would look at everything as a potential blessing. They are usually lovely to be around, because they always see the positive side of things.
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
