A Word A Week – Vicissitude


This week’s word is –

Vicissitude

It is another beautiful word. It means changes of fortune, life’s ups and downs.

The etymology of vicissitude comes from Latin, vicissim, meaning, “in turn”, and later in Fr., vicis meant “change,” “alternation,” “stead”

Life becomes more beautifu and interesting with ups and downs, but  I hope that it always ends on good note 🙂

Ex:  The only two left are tall and ancient trees that have outlived a thousand political vicissitudes.
