Sometimes, life is ugly. The skies darken, we see death, pain, suffering.
Recently, I came across a book titled The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha. It is a brilliant book, and it made me smile. It is basically a list of tiny, amazing moments that we all experience, but may not think about at the time.
Here are a few. I hope they make you smile.
Popping bubble wrap (I know all about that one)
Seeing a cop on the side of the road and realizing you're going the speed limit anyway
Tripping and realizing no one saw you
The smell of crayons
Peeling an orange in one shot
The final seconds of untangling a really big knot
Finding your keys after looking forever
The smell of rain on a hot sidewalk
Picking up a q and a u at the same time in Scrabble
The first scoop out of a jar of peanut butter
Perfectly toasted toast
When you're watching one of your favorite movies and suddenly realize you don't remember how it ends
Frozen walls of air conditioning hitting you on hot days
Finally figuring out how your hotel shower faucet works
A long hug when you really need it
The sound of ice cubes cracking in your drink
Okay, so that was more than a few. The author includes an entertaining description beneath each item, but this post would become monumentally long if I included them.
Have a beautiful weekend, and don't forget to enjoy your tiny, awesome moments.
