I’ve Caught Feelings


I don’t know how many times someone has asked how I was feeling and I just replied with “fine”. Lies and all lies most of the time. Saying “fine” has become as typical as saying “i’m good” and neiher are accurate.  This year I challenge myself to be more descriptive. I love love love words and from now on I will use them as much as possible. I came across this and knew that I had to share with you. Thanks Sheri & Bob Stritof for creating this list.
