Blog Pick: 1000 Awesome Things

  • Print



1000 Awesome Things is just that - a running list of 1000 things that blogger Neil Pasricha considers to be awesome.

Pasricha started the blog about four years ago with #1000, and has been counting down to #1 with a new post on each weekday. The "awesome things" range from things like #114: Finding your name on some tacky souvenir in the gift shop, to #952: When someone tells you that you have something in your teeth.

The blog has spawned two books: The Book of Awesome and The Book of (Even More) Awesome.

Sadly, tonight Neil Pasricha will be unveiling the #1 awesome thing.

Although I haven't been a die-hard reader of the blog the way I've been with PostSecret, what I do love about 1000 Awesome Things is that it never fails to put a smile on my face. While PostSecret can get into themes and ideas that are darker, or sadder, or heartbreaking even, 1000 Awesome Things is just a boost of happiness.

The blog reminds me how much I enjoy and appreciate the little things, even when I didn't realize how much I enjoyed and appreciated them in the first place: tennis grunts, when everything you're cooking gets done at the same time, shampoo memories, the good kind of stomach butterflies, and grandma hair.

I can't wait to see what #1 will be, but ultimately, I will use the rest of the 999 awesome things as a reminder to find excitement, fun, and love in all of the little things in life.
