If you had two pills; a pill that would rejuvenate you and a pill that would make you forget 2020, what would you choose? A little change here and there, but we still remember the challenges of 2020 – because it surely has taught us a lot.

The first word of the day for 2021 is rejuvenate. Don’t you think we need to rejuvenate our body and mind for this new year, 2021, after such a trying year? I surely do! But, let’s dig in a bit. The word “rejuvenate” entered in the early 19th century and was suggested by French. It is a verb and is pronounced like rih-JOO-vuh-nayt.
