Think on…1000 Awesomethings

I wanted to have a blog like this to catalog my search for positive and inspirational things both on the web and in real life.  The “things” can be awe inspiring like a mountaintop, lunar eclipse, or rainbow.  Or they can be small everyday things that we tend to take for granted but are special in themselves.

Today I will start by pointing out a blog/website that is my inspiration:

http://1000awesomethings.com/

“1000 Awesome Things might be described as optimism for the rest of us. Sunny without being saccharine, it’s a countdown of life’s little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp.” – The Vancouver Sun

I rarely come across a post on that blog that I don’t chuckle at with recognition.  Examples of some of my favorite entries from this blog (that has now spun off two books) are:

#999 That last, crumby triangle in a bag of potato chips

#233 When babies grab at your face with their tiny hands

#840 Popping Bubble Wrap

There is so much more from brocco-flower to flying over mountains.  You just have to visit the site to truly grasp its awesomeness!

I love how it helps us to see the pleasure in the routine everyday things we take for granted.  The more we can see the wonder around us the less life seems so black and white.  Color, life, beauty, wonder, fun are all around us.

May you begin to look at the world with new eyes and help others to do the same.

Until next time…think on these things.
