Have An AWESOME Day!

I saw this TED Talk by Neil Pasricha, called "The 3 A's of Awesome". It is very inspirational, reminding me of Kelly Kikipotamus the Hobo's "Grace in Small Things" (GIST). Neil Pasricha also has a couple of books that are compilations of his blog posts that you can find here on his blog as well.

The video is under 18 minutes and worth it; it'll make you aware of things you may have overlooked. I've admired Kelly and how she does this for some time, wanting to have this same awareness for and appreciation of small, ordinary, everyday things. This video did help me, tremendously. I hope it does the same for you.

As he said, when the dark clouds are circling he needed a way (we all need this) to focus on the positive! I'm sure 'The Book of Awesome' must really be awesome and will put it on my list to read.
Attitude, Awareness, Authenticity!
Thanks, Olivia, for sharing this.

You're welcome, Mary Catherine, and it's good to see you here. I wish you all the best with your jewelry business--I know you don't have a lot of time, so thanks for commenting :) xoO

Thank you, Olivia. I probably do have more time than I realize, I just don't manage it very well. And I'm on FB way too much. haha
It's great to be back at the blogs though right now. Yes, I'll wander off again, but for now it's been nice to catch up.
Enjoy your day. xo

I go through cycles, too, Mary. In fact many people have that badge "Blogging Without Obligation" as a reminder that we blog when we want to and not when we don't right? I've been blogging more lately too. And I'm on FB too much too :) Peace and a happy evening, xoO
