101 Words to Use Instead of “Amazing”
I’m calling it, folks: It’s time to retire the word “amazing.”
Or at least put it out to pasture for a while.
Over the last few years, this seven-letter word has become more over-used than a can of Aqua Net at an 80s fashion shoot. It’s an all-too-easy go-to that robs us of our creative ability to express true wonder, and it’s time to set it aside.
Can we all agree to do that?
So, what are we supposed to say instead of “amazing?” Funny you should ask:
- beauteous (sure, go Shakespearean for a day — why not?)
- beyond words
- bonny (for my friends in the Highlands)
- excellent (for my fellow Wayne’s World and Bill & Ted fans)
- fabulous (absolutely, dahling!)
- inconceivable (for my fellow Princess Bride fans)
And, if you absolutely MUST be amazed …
Okay, folks, which ones did we leave out? Tell us your favorite alternatives for “amazing” in the comments — we’d love to hear from you!
