I hate this Phrase…. Although I use it more and more.. and seem to believe that’s how I really feel.. It’s almost an automated response from me..
So what is the Real Definition of Fine.. http://www.thefreedictionary.com gives many options, however.. I seem to like this definition:
FINE adj. fin·er, fin·est
1. Of superior quality, skill, or appearance: a fine day; a fine writer.
Very small in size, weight, or thickness: fine type; fine paper.
I find that when I say,” I’m Fine”, I’m really not Good.. because I would have said that.. but I don’t want to tell the person”I’m not doing good” because I really do not want to go into whats wrong. So instead, I settle for “I’m fine” and hope the person leaves me alone.. And then its even worse because the person I’ve said ‘i’m fine” to starts bugging me about whats wrong.
So, how can I get out of this mentality.. I have no clue.. Maybe I need to feel better about life, so when people ask me how I’m doing I can actually say “I’m great”.. Hmmm.. So many things to ponder.. and the reality of it is that we live in a world where there is a lot of bad stuff around. So each day when something bad happens.. it typically clouds the good.. Let me give you an example.. Yesterday, my day started out awesome.. I made 2 sales, and then made an awesome upgrade.. How great was that??!!!!! But then, some one yelled at me.. for almost 2 hours.. and things just seemed to go down hill and my mood changed.. I started thinking all these bad things about everything…
So now I’m trying to get out of the rut I’ve gotten my mind into…
So here is the thing.. I’m fine.. I’m just fine..
