Ok, I’m really excited about this one because this guy wrote the book on gratitude. Really.
It’s not a book of lists. It’s a book of blurbs, funny, simple, and poignant. Some of my favorite awesome things in this book are:
Becoming a regular somewhere (thank-you Portsmouth Tea).
When you learn a new word and start seeing it everywhere (thank-you YaYa Jen for counter-intuitive during a 1am game of Pictionary).
Eating the last piece of anything.
Kicking those clumps of frozen mush off the back of your car’s mud flaps. (Is that weird to enjoy?)
Liam’s favorites were all the ones having to do with bodily functions. Go figure. What I love about this book is that Pasricha began it during a dark time in his life. He forced himself to change his attitude. I began this blog to appreciate my journey in the sometimes stressful world of special needs parenting. My thankful thursdays are purposeful. Slow down and find something, even if it’s the tears on your pillow after an awful week, to appreciate.
So tell me, what’s awesome in your life?
