Definition: Phantasmagoric (pronounced: fan-“taz-ma-‘gor-ic); French; adj.
1. Characterized by incredible, intricate, impossibly imaginative imagery.
Why I love this word:
I have learned that part of being great is when you are willing to make things more difficult for yourself in order to be self-sufficient. When you set your goals so incredibly high, and you imagine the life you'd wish to live, it's easy to get lost in the imaginary of all the great things that life may be able to offer you without putting the effort in. Finding the balance between having an intricate mind and the power to accomplish things is an incredible trait. You make things difficult for yourself because you expect so much of yourself. Work to make your beautiful, incredible, and impossibly imaginative dreams become a reality.
