Today marks the end of Neil Pasricha’s blogging journey chronicling all things awesome. Launched in June 2008, Pasricha began a daily blog with his musings on everything from broccoflower to the sound of scissors cutting construction paper to the air just before a thunderstorm. Today’s final 1000th awesome thing was “anything you want it to be”.
That’s really the point isn’t it?
Awesome comprises a wild and wacky range of things. It’s dependent of course on individual preference but really I think the whole idea of what is, or can be awesome, is all a matter of how open you are to being grateful for a bazillion things in this world.
Awesome is simply a perspective or outlook on life.
What’s awesome about Pasricha’s collection of thoughts and ideas, is not that they spawned three books and a cool smart phone app. What’s really awesome is he created a movement in which people began to look a little differently at the things in their lives. They started appreciating the seeming unimportant or mundane. They became a bit more mindful about all the awesome stuff that crosses their paths on a daily basis.
So hats off to Neil Pasricha. He makes my awesome list.
