I’m fine. How are you?


For me, ‘feeling fine’ is relative. I’m pretty good most of the time – compared to how I have felt. And, because of past health problems, I want to feel as well as I can for as long as I can.

But ‘feeling fine’ is also aspirational. I want to be so fine that I’m glowing with good health and gloriously able to do all I want in my life! ‘Fine in the upper-case sense, where FINE = “Fantastic! Thanks for asking!!”

How we feel, of course, is really an individual thing. It not only relates to our health, but also our mood or attitude, our life situation or circumstances. And our relationships and connections with other people.

A project by Sep Kamvar and Jonathan Harris called We Feel Fine analysed data from blogs all around the world by scanning new blog posts as they were published for the phrases “I feel” and “I am feeling”. Here is the link: http://wefeelfine.org/wffbook

 So … “How are you feeling?” … Really 😉
