I just said hello to a lady who must have been in her 70’s she was moving slow, getting out of her car. She was a bit slumped but had a huge smile. I said “hello, how are you?”. She said “Doing great!” I said with weather like this in January how could we be bad?”
Her response made my day, because I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard or possibly even said, I hope this doesn’t mean we are

It was a purposefully thought out positive answer. It made may day and lifted my attitude.
The best part about good attitude? It’s contagious
