How You Doin'?

Updated on June 28, 2014

A simple enough question, but I'm really asking...

What's on your mind?... it can actually be a pretty loaded question.

when we run into someone we know and say "How u doin'? we normally expect to hear - "fine thanks, you?" ...and maybe exchange a few pleasantries and continue on our way. But today, I'm asking this question to let you get something off your chest ... so tell me: how u' doin?

Great, I'm glad to hear it...

But I'm being nosy so leave me a comment below and tell me if you're just having a good day... got some good news.... do you have a positive attitude or maybe you just woke up on the right side of the bed this morning!

Be Happy!


Me too... sometimes

So what's going on? I'm not a counselor but if are having a difficult time trying to figure out how to handle a situation then I suggest you take a few deep breaths and try to completely come at the situation from the opposite side - do you see what I mean?

Don't keep looking at the problem instead, I want you to pretend that you already have exactly what you want so the situation has come out the way you wanted it to - how would that make you feel and what would you do, now prepare yourself to forget about it for a few hours. Get up and lose yourself in some other activity , if you're at home and the house is clean find something you like to do... I like to do puzzles ...I mean any kind of puzzles, from Sudoku to crossword and jigsaw puzzles - something that takes a bit of concentration but is not stressful. So go ahead and find something constructive to do and then go back to your problem and make a decision.

If you're still not able to make a decision and act on it then I'm thinking you're not ready to make the decision and it's not all that important but if it is then you need to stop wasting more time, be honest with yourself and make the decision. We all make mistakes but if it's done after careful thought and consideration you will live with it, learn from it and move on.

I can't tell you how much this song means to me!

Sad, lonely or depressed?

well I hope to cheer you up...

Here's a challenge to get up and go find someone to share your troubles with, or simply to encourage you - as impersonal as this format is, there is a reason you're reading this page right now, so take heart in that and acknowledge that I'm trying to spread the love here today. Open your mind and your heart and take a good look at what you have to be grateful for and figure out what you can do right now to turn that frown upside down!

I love to Give Inspirational Gifts: - Get something for yourself or someone special!


Get help...


What are you afraid of - debt... life... being treated like you don't belong... or is someone physically threatening you?

Maybe it's time you learned to live a little dangerously. Life is full of surprises and you need to be one of them. Don't let anything stand in your way. Life's complicated enough without having anything to hold you back, so my advice today is to get out from under any oppression - go look in the mirror and tell yourself it's over and you're going to do something about it. Make a step in the right direction and then make another one - seriously - no holding back now: I dare you!

Inspiration comes in many forms

What inspires you?

Music Inspires Me!



Me too... life's got me hyped right now - there's so much to do and see in this world. What's in store for me today? Well I can't be 100% sure but I can tell you, whatever it is, I am going to face it with a positive attitude - I hope you do too!

      Thanks for asking how I was doing. :) This lens probably made a lot of people and their gloomy mornings a little better -- just like it did mine. Thank you for a great lens idea.

      Neat lens idea! I'm excited and impatient! I've decided on my camera upgrade, but am waiting until next month.

      I am fine! As a RocketSquid greeter I have been reading all the "ask a question lens" what great lens-masters we have coming up.But most of all is what I have learnt about what is going on in the world. So I have had a busy happy day reading lens. Thanks for sharing your unusual but nice lens. Blessed.

      Doing just fine, thanks! Interesting take on a question we hear and ask so many times a day without really considering the answer.
