#How Are You? Get Involved!

How are you? 

Simple question, right? One you’ll hear pretty much everyday, probably several times. I’m sure you’ll have your automatic answer all lined up.  Something along the lines of ‘Fine, thanks’ or ‘I’m okay’ or ‘Good’ or whatever. You say it without even thinking.

What happens if you do think about it though? What happens if you pause before you answer and ask yourself how you really are? Would your answer be different?

So I’m asking you – how are you? 

Be creative, be thoughtful, but most importantly, be honest.

Now, if you think this is great, please get involved by either sharing this post or writing your own, spread this around the blogosphere, encourage people to be open and honest, show people how to care about each other! We can do this, guys!

  1. I’m doing so much better now than I was these past several months. It has been a long journey of acceptance, self-love, and showing kindness toward others that has brought me here, and through the ups and downs, I’m extremely grateful for everything I’ve gone through. 🙂 It blesses me now to look back and know that without those difficulties my family and I faced, I couldn’t have gotten to where I am today. ❤ This is such a thought-provoking post, Gracie! Thanks for writing it!

  2. How am I? I am recovering. I am getting better. ❤
    A few weeks ago I got really depressed and anxious, I started having suicidal thoughts, but by the grace of God I am still here and I am getting better. ❤

    I did a post similar to this a while back, and I love this idea, more people need to be honest. And more people need to let others be honest.

    • That’s great to hear. I went through something similar – discontent, negative, etc. I’m so so so glad you’re back on track. Thank you for sharing with me, Gray. ♥️♥️♥️
      Thanks for reblogging on your WordPress site too. Means a lot.

  3. I am exhausted, quite honestly. 😂 School happens. Life happens. Wishes on stars don’t come true. (As in I don’t get an extra hour in the day to just spend on writing 😂) All that jazz.

  4. Wow. Life has been less of a breeze and more of a tornado for me this month. I’m stuck in a routine of studying for hours together and reading manga, which is sadly my only means of passing time these days. Terminal exams are not something to underestimate, go figure. 😛
    I have also recently been thinking about how much I’ve changed in just a matter of months. It’s been a rather weird experience, actually, comparing the old, murky version of me to the cockiness I have developed. I’ve begun to see myself in a new light, I could say, and have begun to hone my not-so-newfound tomboyish attitude.😲
    I’ve been spending less time with my laptop and more with my books, which is a good thing! And blogging and Design Pique set aside, I’m also finding a lot more time to write. Me? I am living in one busy world. 😉

    So, how are you?

    • Hiya! Wow! Sounds like you’ve had a pretty productive hiatus, my friend! I hope your exams went well. I’m super glad you’ve developed some more confidence and reconnected with your inner tomboyness. 😁😁😁

      Thanks for asking! Yeah, I’m actually truly good. If you read my recent update post there’s loads of details, but I’m definitely a lot more positive after my rocky, discontent, negative stage. Teenage breakdown/crisis over! Phewf. I’ve got a lot to look forward to….go read my update post…..

      • Sure have! Actually, they’re still on until the 23rd. 😁
        Teenage crisises are annoying. Been there, done that. Don’t worry, it’ll wear out eventually. 😉 And yes, I should go read that post of yours.

      • Ohhhh, you’ll have to let me know though I’m pretty sure you’ll have done super well (unless you’ve spent your whole hiatus reading manga lol 😂) Haha, yep. I think I’m over mine now. Touchwood. Though I’ll probably have another one at some point. Thanks!

  5. This is really beautiful! I think it is so true! I’m going to repost it!! One of my closest friends online(winks at her if she’s reading this 😉) and I, ask each other how we are feeling emotionally each day. I almost wish people would ask that instead out and about, I feel like it might make people more likely to be honest about how they are really doing. 💕

  6. I’m doing a lot better than what i thought I would be. Usually, I would have something to complain about but not much comes to mind. Tomorrow starts my spring break, and tonight is my last night of work for a while! I appreciate you asking so very much, and love this idea! 🙂

  7. This is so great! I am really happy and glad about how my day is going, if that makes any sense. How are you? I just reblogged this post. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  8. What a good idea how are you!!.I guess I always say I’m ok whether I am or not as I don’t want to inflict my problems on other people . We all have different ways of expressing ourselves.xxxxx

    • Thanks, Nanny! Yep, I’m feeling good. I’m kind of feeling like I’m in a bit of an in-between right now. I’ve got so much coming up in the future, but it’s just a little bit out of reach – if you know what I mean? Yes, we’re definitely all different.

  9. Love this post, Gracie! Honestly– one of the questions that is really hard to answer. But as an answer, I’m really doing good right now and enjoying every bit of my summer here in my home. Can’t wait to have new adventures and new places to go to, though. I hope you’re okay as well. x

  10. What a fab post Gracie. Even if I’m not I say I’m fine, because really I am. I have so many positive things in my life that even if I feel a bit grotty they’re still there. So I’m saying I’m great and I mean it! xxx P.S. I will share on my FB page

  11. I know I’m a bit late, but I love the concept of this post!
    I’ve been sick for a couple of days, so I’m feeling a little down, but hearing that new music from one of my favourite bands is coming out soon definitely cheered me up. And watching The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier tonight was fun.
    Thank you for such a thoughtful post, I’m going to reblog on my blog because I love it so much. 🙂 xx

  12. Hello, Gracie.
    Today I have been messy, not mentally messy but physically messy, I am always mentally messy, this time rearing from the norm, I got very messy with grease from cleaning out someone’s bilge.
    I have often thought about the answer and the question.
    The question; “how are you” seems very strange, what does it really mean (literally)?
    And the answer; “fine” well that’s a very narrow answer but not a fine one, it seems that what we say and what we mean are completely different.
    I mentioned this to you a little while ago, maybe we should be about what we say and think about what we really mean.

  13. Yeah, so I think this is a fab idea, to let peeps know and inquire about their wellbeing.
    Honestly, I feel great! The exams I had before school closed tired me AF and now that it’s summer, I feel pleasanter and happier and just…freer. I don’t mean to sound so cheesy, but that’s just how I feel.

  14. Reblogged this on Red Ain't Blushin' and commented:
    A totally good idea. It’s what we ask normally, but it’s just out of politeness, but mostly out of habit. And our answers are practically always “fine”, no matter what we’re feeling.

    Even when we know that all we need is someone to talk to.

  15. I’ve probably already commented on this and I know I’m really late, but I’ve just started a blog series being open about my mental health and how I really am. Love this idea though!
