A year ago Neil gifted us with this post, and what a fitting thought for today. We have so much to be thankful for, not least the wonderful journey of 1000 Awesome Things that has now come to an end! Any requests for the final few awesome things before May 1?

All regular contributors should have received an invite to be a “contributor,” so leave a comment if you haven’t and I will resend. The new Journey of Awesome is just days away, stay tuned!

P.S.: there are still a last few opportunities for regular contributors, so if you’re hoping to share with your Awesome Thing with the world, let us know on the About page.

1000 Awesome Things

I started writing 1000 Awesome Things on June 20, 2008 as my life was swirling and twirling.

It seemed like every day was cloudy as every morning I’d wheel my car up icy onramps straight into red-light traffic jams to head to my office job in the suburbs. Then I’d wheel back home the same way, every day. Frozen burritos and back pain, up those ramps and down again, my life seemed stuck in neutral with a black scribbly cloud above my head.

One night after work I went online and typed “How to start a blog” into Google. Ten minutes later I wrote #1000 Broccoflower for a quick smile before bed. As my marriage crumbled like crackers, as my best friend sadly took his own life, I was trying to push from back pain to grass stains and from microwaves to wedding buffets.

About 1000awesomefriends

I am just one of the many who have been inspired by Neil Pasricha's 1000 Awesome Things to be better, to see the world as a better place, and to keep the awesome movement alive, as I think it makes the world a better place! We all have enough negative to hear about, what we need is a positive space, positive outlook on life. And I hope this blog will give us the chance to do it!
