I just discovered this today. It’s a refreshing and happy blog called 1000 Awesome Things. It’s written by Neil Pasricha and he won the Webbie Award for Best Blog of 2010. Did you even know that there was such thing as a “Webbie”?? The success of his blog led to a book called The Book of Awesome.
I love his gentle and optimistic view of the world. It’s a look at the sunny side of life. There is awesomeness all around us and Neil posts a daily bit of awesomeness on his blog. I am his newest follower and fan.
Some of my favorites from his blog:
Clean baby smell
Wearing underwear just out of the dryer
Popping bubble wrap
The Smell of fresh cut grass
Finally peeing after holding it forever
When the thing you were going to buy is already on sale
Placing the last piece of a puzzle
Laughing so hard you start crying
Listening to couples tell you how they met
And with that, allow me to leave you today with some wisdom from the ever awesome Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”
