X is for Xesturgy

I won't lie. I wanted to cheat a bit on the letter X, but I promised myself no cheating. So I found a real word I could work with. Xesturgy is an obsolete term that means to polish. I thought it was apropriate, but I won't keep you in suspense as to why.

We all require a bit of polishing. Whether we're diamonds in the rough or gem that has lost it's lustre - polishing will always be needed. In self-improvement polishing is simply the act of taking inventory every now and again. Asking yourself if you've done your best, if you've been your best.

Nothing can keep it's shine forever, so polish. xesturgy.

A gem cannot be polished without frictiond - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
