Somewhere around my pre-teen years my mother was hosting a dinner party at our house. One of her male friends asked me how I was doing. This guy was always telling jokes, always had a smile on his face, he was full of life. I must have responded with something like, “good,” or “OK.” When I gave my mediocre response, he said, “You should say you are FABULOUS,” and he made me say it out loud.
It really made me think about how I think about myself and my life — It’s something that has always stuck with me.
This past Sunday the pastor at my church started his sermon talking about how everything is super these days: Super Delegates, Super Target, Superman (although he defended Superman). “What about fabulous?” he asked the congregation.
Once home, my husband and I kept using “fabulous” throughout the day. “Dinner is fabulous, honey.” “You look fabulous in that shirt!” It was a great exercise and made us realize how many good things are going on in our lives.
I know we’re not always “fabulous,” but when we are we should be grateful and say it out loud. You’ll be surprised how it will make you feel.
