You are Super Cool

You are Super Cool

How many times a day do you remind yourself that you aren’t good enough? Maybe you don’t actually say the words, but your actions speak volumes.

If you’ve abandoned a project, spent too much time doing things that don’t matter, declined when you wanted to accept, or just had a bad day (or month or year), I want to remind you that you are super cool.


(this video is only 30 seconds and will make you smile. If you can’t see it in email, click here)

Super cool is a super power that we all possess, even when we can’t see or feel it. Even when we can’t recognize it or say it out loud, we are super cool. Why don’t we say it out loud? Why don’t we wear t-shirts that read “I am super cool and so are you”?

We don’t do that for 2 reasons

  1. We don’t believe it.
  2. We don’t want other people to think we believe it.

When someone we love is feeling down, starting something new or needs our support, we encourage them, we celebrate with them and we make them feel better when they fail. Why don’t we extend that same generosity to ourselves?

I want to remind you that you are talented and funny and sexy and amazing. You really are super cool.

You are super cool because you …

  • know that if you are having a bad day, tomorrow will be better
  • know that 30 isn’t the new 20, 40 isn’t the new 30 and 50 isn’t the new 40 and you are grateful
  • fit into your skinny jeans
  • don’t fit into your skinny jeans, gave them away and bought jeans that fit you.
  • know when to follow the rules and when to make your own
  • say no
  • you support artists
  • know that admitting weakness is a sign of strength
  • dance
  • understand that to be confident, you have to be vulnerable
  • are starting to recognize what matters
  • you are an artist

You know those little quirks and unique traits you have? They make you – you and what’s not super cool about that? And, the way you treat people, the way you treat animals, the way you treat the planet… that’s nothing short of super cool.

Reminding yourself that you are super cool is not boastful or indulgent, it is super powerful. So go on, say it. “I am super cool!”. Then call someone you love or send them this post and tell them, “You are super cool!”

When people start to fully grasp how super cool they are, super cool things start to happen, so let’s spread the word.

    I am super cool because I traded Monday morning sales meetings for walking my dog by the pond.

    My husband Mark is super cool because he is skipping his bike race tonight to take me for a hike before he leaves for a business trip.

      Hi Courtney,
      I am super cool because I have 2 super cool daughters, 2 super cool sons-in-law, 3 super cool grandchildren and one amazingly super cool husband of 44 years who shared by dream of moving to Italy.

    Love this post! The video was great. I wrote on this a few months ago talking about how just being who you are and living it makes you cool. Back when we were young we worried about if others thought we were cool. Now I am more concerned if I think I am cool, if I am really living the life and the dreams that I most value. I am super cool 😉

    Going for a walk with the hubby and the dog is super cool too :)

    Courtney you are super cool and so am I. Great video. I ran to hug my puppy who has been driving me crazy lately right after watching it. We are both smiling ear to ear.

    You are super cool!!! I am super cool! We are super cool!!!

    I loved this post and I feel super cool today because I got to spend most of today writing and drafting blog posts, including one I posted today. It’s all so new and exciting to me that if any of you are interested in supporting a new blog, please stop by.

    I’ve been following this blog and a few others for awhile, but now I feel confident enough to share my blog too – that’s cool too I think,x

    Other quirky things I feel super cool about … I loved the two phone calls I got today :)

    This has been one of those days when I haven’t felt very cool at all. Thank you for reminding me that I am super cool, even when I don’t feel well enough to get my to do list done, and when I don’t feel like being social.

    • Courtney Carver says

      Janie, You are super cool even if you don’t get one more thing done this week!

  7. says

    WOW! I needed this yesterday. I feel much better largely because I went to boot camp where we told eachother that we were awesome. It did make me feel good and I needed it. So, great post! Thank you.

  8. says

    Love this post. I’m supercool because I’m trying to do what I love for a living (drawing). My hubby is supercool because he works so hard and got a 2-book deal!!

    Ya’ll are supercool because you’re brave enough to share your coolness, among many other reasons. Let’s all keep it up! :)

    I am super cool because after all these years I’ve finally come to terms with my hair. And because I could explain the basics of an internal combustion engine to my son when it was part of his science homework yesterday. LOL! I don’t think I’ve ever thought of myself as super cool before. “Other people” (like the “popular kids”) were/are cool, but not me.

    And you all are super cool too! Be the best you that you can be, the you that you were meant to be! No one else can do that. :-)

    I am super cool because I love to dance (sometimes not well) to just about anything, and I never care who is watching.

    My husband is super cool because he always puts up with my quirkyness with a smile.

    This was a great post Courtney!

  11. says

    This post made my day, because it as linked to me at just the right time. This weekend, I briefly forgot how super cool I was this weekend and then my friends and husband (who happens to be my best friend) reminded me. Thank you!

  12. says

    I’ve read this post twice now over the past couple weeks, & watched the youtube vid several more times… I don’t know if I’m super cool or not, but you sure make me feel like I am! Thank you for that. I’m keeping this where I can find it easily any time I need a reminder that there are kind, loving, & generous people in this world… & that I am one of them… & that we are a very super cool group of human beings. It’s good to be in such remarkable company. :)
