When people ask me how I’m doing these days I catch myself saying, “Shockingly well.” Or something like that. I noticed that response is more tentative than I want to be, than I have the courage to be, and that is actually accurate. It’s not shocking that I’m doing well, and I don’t have to be defensive about it either.
So I’m changing my answer: “I’m fabulous. Thank you for asking.” And I wish that for you too.
I’m gonna keep going.
