For the past few years when asked,”how are you?“…my reply has typically been “I feel good about life.” I didn’t think much of it the first time I muttered it…I just said how I felt. Most of the time I typically do feel pretty good about life. The first few reactions were so positive to this one simple line, that I made it my default reply. This response has become more than just a default saying though. It’s a great ice-breaker. It instantly helps me make a positive first impression in a new relationship. It’s changed the way people interact with me. It tells the person on the other side that I’m ready to derail the conversation we were about to have and instead let’s talk about how weird it is to be alive.
This short phrase has also become my self affirmation therapy. I find that when I say it…I smile. The person receiving the words smiles…which makes me smile more. And generally…I start to feel even better about life.
This site is dedicated to things that make me feel good about life. I hope you enjoy it.
