I challenge you to a duel – duel word elimination.

I challenge you to see how many days you can go without saying or writing the two “A” words. You know what they are. If you don’t overuse them, you are in the minority.

Everything is amazing. Everyone is awesome. You’d think our lives were pretty perfect by the amount of times we say these words.

We do have other adjectives in the English language. So why is it that as an entire society we choose these two as our adjectives of choice? How did we get stuck in this amazingly, awesome cycle?

If you decide to take the challenge, I offer a few alternative adjectives for your repertoire. Let me know how you do.

Adjectives for amazing and awesome:

  • astonishing, astounding, beautiful, breathtaking, fascinating, impressive, incredible, magnificent, majestic, marvelous, outstanding, phenomenal, remarkable, sensational, spectacular, stupendous, stunning, surprising, unbelievable, wonderful.
