My Personal Word, with description below, courtesy of Wikipedia.
A healthy state of mind, characterized by moderation, self-control & deep awareness
of one’s true self and resulting in happiness.
("a healthy mind in a healthy body").
"Sophrosyne (Greek: σωφροσύνη) is an ancient Greek concept of an ideal of excellence of character and soundness of mind, which when combined in one well-balanced individual leads to other qualities, such as temperance, moderation, prudence, and self-control.
In other languages there is no word that is a simple equivalent, but it is sometimes translated into Latin as continentia (continence and moderation) and sobrietas (temperance and sobriety). In English it is sometimes translated as prudence, self-control, moderation, or temperance.
The word is found in the writings of Plato and its meaning is debated in his dialogue Charmides.
In Greek literature sophrosyne is considered an important quality, and is expressed in opposition to the concept of hubris."
I would like to think that after more than 50 years on this planet, I am getting closer to the spirit of Sophrosyne, even if I never quite reach that fictional model of restraint, Elinor Dashwood. But it's my word, and I'm sticking to it.
