I love words that have multiple meanings and uses. Key is one of those little words that have such big meanings. It can be the key to a puzzle, key to a door. The key character, the key for a song. It’s a noun, verb and adjective. In honor of the tiny word, here are some of the key elements in my own life. Even though there are more, without these I wouldn’t be me.

My family and friends – My direct and extended family is awesome and a great support. I love that I’ve picked most of them. So says you can’t pick your family? Plus I have this enormous group of friends online that are awesome.

My dogs – The obvious, again. My little loves keep me entertained. Chloe looks out for the house and property. Tréa is my tiny companion. She sometimes helps Chloe bark.

My writing – My newest passion. Who knew it would come to mean so much and become such a large part of my life.

Music – I can’t imagine being without music. It’s part of almost everything I do.

Gaming – This is my hobby. I get to connect with people and live in a fantasy world all at the same time. I have a fabulous guild that I belong to and great friends to play with.

Teaching – While this is only part-time, it’s very fulfilling. Years ago my own mentor tasked me with passing on what I know. I’ve tried to do as he asked.

  1. There are a few keys in my life too. My husband, my cat, my writing. Keys to anything are important and can be useful in opening up doors that you don’t expect.

  2. I write a lot of articles for my freelance writing work and I find myself using the word “key” quite a bit. “Understanding how this works is key to implementing it,” for example. And Microsoft Word often marks it as incorrect, but I’ve heard it used that way all my life. I guess you’re supposed to say THE key? I don’t know…it’s a puzzler for me, for sure!

  3. Key is a well used word and must baffle second language learners. Well, English has tons of homonyms that baffle those coming to the language later in life.

    Lovely post that gave us a glimpse of some of those keys elements in your life.

    • That’s an excellent point! Hadn’t thought how that affects those not used to the richness of the word. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
