Over a year ago when I was at my most sick, I thought good would be ANY improvement. I would have considered a 1% improvement as feeling good. I would have (and did) jump up & down in joy when that 1% improvement came, and scream how good I felt.
Now, what do I consider good? I consider good not having a stomach every day, or being able to drive. But if I was betting person, I would say once I achieve those, my perception of good will then be changed again. Good will then be working a full day, or playing a game of tennis etc.
I just find it odd.. How the perception of one word can change so much from person to person, or month to month.
When I'm being asked if I'm doing "good," or "well," I always find myself scrambling for a proper reply. I am good in comparison to last year, but I'm not good in comparison to today. Today I want to not have this stomach ache, or this migraine. Today I want to not be fatigued & incredibly nauseated. Good would only be possible if all those were checked off my list.
So I start to think.. Is it me being selfish, or is it me being the Type A "strive for the best" that changes my perception so much? I'll be pondering on this some more, since I don't have the answer to that. And I'll leave you with one last question: Is any good ever good enough? Or is it an ever changing word that can't be attained? Do we need to set a good and stick to it?
