How are you feeling….

Fine is often quickly given and received….

What if we really took time to offer an answer that aligned with one of the many feelings that flow through us in a day.

I often consider my nieces and nephews when they are in the two-year old range. How they can live through such a myriad of emotion in such a short time.

To go from giggles to wails….

To go from running in play to resting in a secure hug and hold….

To go from full dependence and accepting of help to a “me do it” attitude which screams out a desire for independence….

to live so freely in the full range of emotions….

But then something happens….we grow up and learn the word FINE.

I would like to invite you to consider some new words to share the feelings of your heart….

Just in case you’re not sure what your options are…..I will leave you with some options!
