What does Being Prudent mean?

As I went about searching for a name for my blog, I thought of many ideas that are important to me. Fun, safe, creative, wise, thrifty, comfortable. I decided on the word Prudent.

Now, the word prudent has some bad connotations. There are some confusion with the word prude. It may conjure up the image of the spinster older woman with no style or life! Who is cheap and judgmental. Wow, that is not my idea of a good word for a blog!

But, while I was looking up the definition in my dictionary, (Yes, I do have a very thick dictionary on my shelf, in fact I have two!) I found I really liked what Marriam Webster had to say ;

 

I love the first definition: capable of exercising sound judgement in practical matters. Yeah! That is what I want. I love the part from the second meaning which says, “sensible, not rash.” Isn’t that how we want to live?

I love living in a peaceful home. I do not thrive in chaos.

So, there is what I want my blog to be about: the pursuit of peace by using sound judgement and being sensible, and not rash.
