Don’t you love it when a simple little thing that happens can be described as “Awesome?” Even the most sour cynic can attest to a few things that make them honor the little joys in life. Those that can’t…we no longer have room for you in our world.
Go out and buy “The Book of Awesome.” Yes. It really is awesome. I implore all of you to get it. OR even better, compile your own book of awesome. It reminds us to find a little happy in everything. Awesome things like:
Having a whole row on the plane. You can get up a pee anytime you want. You can rest your arms. You may even be able to pull off a row nap. You can imagine you are insanely rich and paid for the extra seats just because. AWESOME.
Laughing so hard you make no sound at all. I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS.
Building and amazing couch-cushion fort. Squeezing through a door as it’s shutting without touching it. AWESOME!
When you spill something on your shirt and it doesn’t leave a stain. Finding money in your old coat pocket–or even better, that tube of lipstick you haven’t seen in a year. The first scoop out of a jar of peanut butter. Licking the cake batter off the beaters of a mixer. Hitting a bunch of green lights in a row. AWESOME.
Finding a mix tape given to you by an old boyfriend or girlfriend. When a cashier opens up a new checkout lane at the grocery store and you become first in line. Free samples of your favorite food at the store. Seeing someone laugh in their sleep. AWESOME!
That first early fall morning you walk out the door and need a sweater. Making the perfect margarita the first time around. AWESOME!
Remembering how lucky we are to be here right now. And how focusing on little happy things can make us happier and more enjoyable to be around. UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME. Come on. Lemme know what your AWESOME was the morning~
