K is for Kicky

I never believed that this word, which sounds like a name for an incredibly energetic girl is even a real word let alone a feeling. But it is.
It means exactly as the word sounds, and the pictures that it conjures up. Pictures of breathtaking and charged events.
I have, as everyone has I’m sure, my own stash of secret dreams, a long list. And as I go down crossing off things in my list and now, can pretty much describe my life as being quite kicky. While I haven’t scaled K2,  or kayaked down some whitewater rapids, little adventures like finishing a 5K walk for a good cause, or finishing fifty thousand words in a matter of days for NaNoWriMo, or thinking of an emotion a day each starting with a letter of the alphabet, knowing fully well that there are just six basic emotions, is quite kicky.
Kicky is most definitely a feeling.
The intoxicating feeling of being alive.


  1. It is most definitely a feeling!

  2. I'm totally stealing this emotion. I've been looking for a way to describe this feeling for years.

  3. What a great word for a great feeling!

  4. Kicky is a great word to describe a great feeling. Nice post. Just stopping in with the A-Z challenge. Good luck with the rest of it.
