I enjoy watching Canada AM first thing in the morning. I've been able to do this for the past couple of months since I've retired....awesome!
This morning,they were interviewing Neil Pasricha who was promoting his new book The Book of (Even More) awesome.

The book is a collection of reflections of life's little pleasures. I'm a huge fan of life's little pleasures. For most of my life, I have tried to be aware of those special little moments in my day and to make a point of enjoying them if only for a few seconds.

Neil was saying that he started to write his blog 1000 Awesome Things during a difficult period in his life. He wanted to become more aware of the good moments happening every day that we sometimes overlook. This has led to his blog being chosen as the top blog of the year and to publishing two books on the subject of small pleasures...that's awesome.

Here are a few awesome things that I've felt in the last couple of days:
  1. Driving through the city and hitting all the green lights...awesome!
  2. Taking care of my orchid plant all year long and notice a flowering stem starting to grow...awesome!
  3. Seeing the first hummingbird is back after a long winter absence...awesome!
Over the course of the next few days, I will try to be even more aware of those awesome moments in my day. What are your favorite awesome things?

I leave you with this little promo video.

Have a wonderful day!
