Expand Your Happiness and Pleasure Vocabulary: OMG? How Do YOU Say Something, Some Experience is Amazing, Awesome?

By Rob Kall

There are words, like those I used in the title-- Amazing, Awesome, Incredible -- but there are a lot more great words, and then... there are personal utterances-- and actions and movements. What do you do? What examples from movies or video are really great?

There are words to express awe, joy, like those I used in the title-- Amazing, Awesome, Incredible -- but there are a lot more great words, and then... there are personal utterances-- and actions and movements. What do you do? What examples from movies or video are really great? Just as singing a song or even listening to one can bring you pleasure, trying out new ways to express awe, pleasure, joy can also expand your happiness and pleasure vocabulary.

Here are a few to prime the pump:
OMG, omigod,
Wow, or Wow Wow Wow, or Wowie or wowsie
Oh sh*t!
from the sixties-- "Far Out"
jumping for joy
Elders in wheel chairs nod their heads and may close their eyes
When I taste something awesome I close my eyes and tilt my head up
of course, smiles
Babies wave their hands and pull their heads back. Toddlers wiggle their butts.

Try some of these out, even the baby and toddler movements.

What words, what sounds, what faces, what mannerisms do you use?



What do you say? What do you Do? Share it in the comments. It could just make someone's day, maybe even save someone's life.




Submitters Bio:

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
