Ms 16 sent me a link to this blog – 1000 Awesome Things.
I know I often get ‘blogged down’ with the whinges and whines, even if I do try as hard as I can to turn them into a bit of self deprecating comedy. I know, too, that all too often I forget to acknowledge all the awesome things in my life. (Except for living near the beach. I do go on about the beach a bit, don’t I?)
Well, anyway, I’ve been having fun browsing through all those posts, and having a real out loud chuckle at quite a few that I can really relate to. (How about you?)
And so I’ve decided I’m going to try to make a point of blogging something “awesome” every day, whether it be as an addendum to another post, or a standalone. I should never have the excuse of not being able to think of anything to blog about ever again, should I?
I spent much of yesterday in a bit of a funk and a bad mood, which is not at all helpful to anyone, least of all myself. And have you ever noticed, it’s often really trivial stuff that can put you in a mood? (Or is that just me?)
Well, whatever, maybe it’s time to more regularly focus on the positives, no matter how trivial.
[Or should I save it all up for a weekly post? What do you think?]
Anyway, here’s a couple to get things started:
The freshest bread ever. A white, uncut loaf. Crusts not burnt, but jusssst right. With butter. (Real butter, not marg.)
Yummmmmm. (Not good for me at all, but yuuuummmmmm.)
I’m categorising that in “AWESOME”
On the weekend I finally re-jigged another article for PRG (I’ve had it in the ‘I don’t know where to start to fix it’ basket for weeks and weeks.) I just got an email back from the editor with a thumbs up (and minimal reediting.)
To translate that into more general terms, it’s the feeling you get when you finally deal with something you’ve been procrastinating about, because you really didn’t know how to attack it. You finally bite the bullet and have a go. And you come up trumps. (Look Tracey, you CAN do it after all!)
So what are a couple of awesome little things that you noticed from the past day? I really mean the little bitsy sorts of things in life we often forget to acknowledge, rather than a general thanksgiving (even if my timing happens to coincide…)
Whack them down in comments for me, and put a smile on my face!
