Gratitude:Rolly and I were talking about greetings. When he calls me, he always asks how I am doing instead of getting to the point of his call. Asking and replying to “how are you?” is so automatic these days that it doesn’t mean much, and doesn’t go anywhere as far as conversation starter. Our conversation led me to remember Rolly’s uncle who asked his sister:
“What’s going well for you today?”
Each time I remember this, I want to use it as my regular greeting but then I forget…
I left a voicemail recently to someone who’s message asking to leave a message was finished by the words “stay happy”. I loved it so I finished my message to her with the same words “stay happy”, but it seemed really weird to say. It was nice to hear it on her message though.
