Neil Pasricha created a blog 1000awesomethings.com. With over 10 million hits and the blog has become a book: The Book of Awesome.
I like the front leaf of the cover: "The Book of Awesome reminds us that the best things inj life are free (yes your grandma was right). With laugh-out-loud observagtions from award-winning comedy writer Neil Pasricha, The Book of Awesome is filled with smile-inducing moments on every page that make you feel like a kid looking at the world for the first time."
I think that says it all.
Here's just one of the awesome things in the book:
"Finally remembering a word that's been on the tip of your tongue for so long.
It's like throwing a pail of cold water on all your smoking inner head parts. Gears unjam, lines start rolling, and you settle back in the restaurant booth with a satisfied smile on your face and just blurt it out.
"Parcheesi, that's what it was called."
Getting something with actual handwriting on it in the mail.
The smell and sound of a campfire.
The shampoo head massage you sometimes get at the hairdresser
You get the point. Those everyday happenings that we often fail to appreciate or even notice.
