Definition: Lissome; (Pronounced: lisəm); English; adjective
1. Slender and graceful.
Why I love this word:
Isn't this what we strive for? To be graceful. This word makes me think of dancers, especially ballerinas who are slender, flexible, light and graceful. They are beautiful in their movements and flow through the stage with such ease. Ballerinas, to me, are so elegant and magnificent. The way they are so perfect in every way, because they are disciplined and dedicated to their craft. Now that level of perfection, attention to detail and extreme discipline is what I strive for.
