Definition: Merimna (pronounced: mer-i-men-ah); Greek; noun
1. Anxiety, care, thought, mind
2. In the plural, can mean a pursuit or ambition
Why I love this word:
I love the plural form of this word. I think one of the most important things a person can have in this world is ambition and the pursuit for something that matters. Without ambition, there is no point in trying for anything or striving to achieve anything. Ambition is what pushes us to pursue our dreams and never give up on our goals. Without ambition we would just be doing the same thing every day with no real desire to push ourselves and reach for the stars.
