Do you ever wake up feeling “meh”?
I think it happens to everyone but how do you get back on track?
Will a cup of coffee help? (Maybe, but only for about ten minutes.)
How about a glass of wine? (Dude, it’s Tuesday!)
What about hiring a life coach? (Perhaps. But everyone and their granddaughter is a “life coach” these days. And the last one to approach me was still in high school. 🙄)
So yesterday I decided to try out the latest and greatest internet toy: ChatGPT.
Thinking that it could be a cheaper alternative to hiring a life coach, I went online and entered the following prompt:
How do I go from meh to yeah by regaining my passion and sense of purpose?
Here’s what I got back:
Join a cult. Cults are known for their intense sense of community and purpose. Sure, you might have to give up all your possessions and follow a charismatic leader but think of all the free Kool-Aid you’ll get to drink!
And now I just want to share a bottle of wine with AI and solve the world’s problems.
Mona Andrei is an award-winning humor blogger, columnist, and author. In her most recent book, SUPERWOMAN: A Funny and Reflective Look at Single Motherhood, she shares her challenges and triumphs as a single mother as well as stories from other single mothers.
Mona is also the host of the Single Moms with Moxie podcast.
When Mona isn’t writing or elevating other single mothers, you can probably find her dancing. As a member of a competitive hip-hop team, she likes to think that she’ll stay young and cool forever. She may be delusional.
I have not tried any of the AI’s yet. I should. I’m so happy I wasn’t drinking something when I read your post. Join a cult. I’ll have to remember that the next time I feel meh, which will probably be Thursday when I have to wake up early to go to the dentist.
Good Gravy! All righty, then. Wine, it is…
