Word of the Week Wednesday: Magnanimous

On August 27, 2014, in College, by Mrs. A.
Word of the Week–“Magnanimous”
Definition– Magnanimous – courageously noble in heart and mind. Having, or showing generosity, often in the context of being forgiving.
Discussion– Most of us think of ourselves as being magnanimous, but are we really? How often can we let painful a personal interaction, go unchallenged? Is one magnanimous, if they are accepting of vendor who repeatedly apologizes about an unresolved problem, or are we just to wimpy too express our anger? Can one be magnanimous, when reminding people that “I told you so!”? I think not, because being magnanimous is a trait, while appearing magnanimous is really just an act. Those of us who have witnessed this “false” magnanimous behavior, on the part of a boss, teacher, parent, or even a friend, know that acting magnanimous, is just that, an act.  The source for this week’s word is my new favorite site:

Follow Friday: Me

This is a shameless plug for you to follow me on Twitter (@paipperspach). You won’t find anything juicy (other than juicy is a synonym for inappropriate right now), but you will find relevant articles and links to information for high school students. I post about scholarships, part-time jobs, and other opportunities available to you. This is especially relevant for seniors – lots of future stuff for you including career (not in fast food) and college information.
