Remember when I said I was only going to answer with ‘awesome’ when asked how I was?
Well it’s working and is quite helpful in maintaining a positive attitude. The more you think about being awesome the easier you can get to feeling awesome.
And at first I felt a bit like a fraud as I didn’t feel awesome, but most people gave me a look of understanding. Some asked again with a “no, I know you are feeling lousy - really how are you?” And when I said awesome again they all stopped, smirked, and then said something like awesome. Or simply just looked at me and smiled. They got it and weren’t pursuing it any further.
Everyone but Dave Kelly, he was relentless. He writes about our encounter in his blog. Read blog.
Oh and the Barry Bonds cheeks Dave references in his post, well, they’re awesome too!
