Day 49: f*ing friday

18 Feb

Today starts a weekly series, ironically called, F*ing Fridays, which will coincidentally occur on Friday. Keepin’ it simple over here.

I mentioned some of my favorite F words back on Day 5, including: Fearless,
Fabulous, Fine, Fun, Faith, Freedom, Forgiveness, to name a Few.

Today’s F*ing Friday is dedicated to the word:

As in:
I’m fine.
Everything is fine.
It will be fine.
That is just fine.

Let us not be Fooled.
Fine should be Fined.
It is a lie. It is code.
It might be the most deceitful word in the English language.

When things are “fine” they are certainly not fine.

I should know.
I have experience with Fine.
I have committed the crime of shrugging my shoulders and plastering a bright smile on my Face while halfheartedly convincing the world (and myself) that:

Everything. Is. Just. Fine.

I lived a very long time in the Fantasy of Fine.
It is not Fun.

Fine has a way of making Fabulous Forgotten.
Fine is a potion that will poison you.
Fine will reassure you that things are okay, that you may not be happy, but it’s not worth being honest with the world. Fine will make you believe it is better to put on a happy face than to live in a happy place.

You may have experience with Fine.
Maybe you are Fine with Fine, For right now.
Or, maybe you are Finally getting to the point of being Finished with Fine.

Either way, if you are Flailing about, Frustrated, or Flabbergasted, you probably have Fine to blame.

It took me a decade to Figure this out.
I’m glad I Finally did.

Fine is Forgotten.
Now, I expect Fabulous.
May you too.
