After a good, intense, cardio-step workout, the rant is over and it is time to focus back on the positive… Are you with me?
I am an optimist, always have been. And when I deal with a tough situation or face hardships and challenges, I first let the negative out (whether it is a good scream, cry, kick, workout or knockout – nobody is injured though, I promise). Then, once I am calmed down, I go into a meditative mode and I pray, sing, count my blessings. And when I do, I realize that I have a wonderful life!
Today’s word is intelligent, only in the sense that if you use this term in speaking French, you demonstrate a higher command of the language, a more advanced level. It is not pompous either, so go ahead, use it!
// comblé(e) // adjective: fulfilled, satisfied, overjoyed
Je suis absolument comblée de joie ! // I am absolutely overjoyed !
Sa déclaration d’amour m’a comblée. // His declaration of love filled me with joy.
Merci beaucoup, je suis comblé! // Thank you very much, I don’t know what to say!
Le prince combla de cadeaux ses invités d’honneur. // The prince lavished presents on his honored guests.
I am going to keep it short today, but maybe you can use today’s word in a sentence and comment below. Tell us what you are overjoyed about…
Example : « Je suis comblée de joie à l’idée de retourner en France auprès de ma famille et de mes amis cet été ! »
Don’t mix up with the noun « Le comble », which figuratively, means « the height of… » and literally means « roof space »!
