Definition: Altitudinarian (pronounced: all-ti-TOO-din-AIR-ee-an) adjective
1. Aspiring to great heights; having lofty ambitions.
Why I love this word:
This word really sinks in deep with the current season of my life. Actually scratch that; my entire life so far. Everyday I am told that my dreams are too ambitious and are too big for me to achieve. Well my favorite thing I always like to say is that dreams always come in a size too big so that we may grow into them. Another thing that provides me with reassurance when I get shut down about my dreams is to not allow anyone to tell me 'no' who doesn't have the power to say 'yes.'
