A dear friend of mine recently asked my how I can be awesome everyday. Well my brain started churning. Great question. On a relative basis, we are all awesome in perspective to someone else.
Think about it. Do you have a job, are you educated, do you have people around you who love you, did you get up today, did you have a hot meal, do you have a roof over your head, do you have money in the bank account, do you have a car, do you have the needed medical attention you need etc…..
You get my point. There are plenty of people who can say no to any of those. Relative to that individual you must be awesome. Celebrate this and share how awesome you are. You will be amazed at the response you get.
Just this morning as I was parking my car in a garage in Boston and a women got out of her car, she looks at me and said “good morning how are you?” I replied “awesome”. She then replied “how can you be so awesome this early in the morning?” Since she was getting out of her Mercedes, I thought I might have a teaching opportunity. As she went on her way for the day she said “thank you for sharing how awesome you are. I hope you continue to be awesome today.”
If you are not a fan of awesome, try remarkable or fabulous. Maybe fantastic. They all work.
While I know and recognize your days are not always perfect. We all have good days and bad ones. My question is do you want focus on what have or what you do not. Is it better to highlight your blessings or magnify the short comings? I would submit it is far more beneficial to all if we highlight our blessings.
Thank you for reading. I hope you find the courage emphasize your blessing today and find your awesome place.
