So I was watching a video this morning - the morning AFTER my team lost its big football game.
The VIDEO is called The Three A's of Awesome, by Neil Pasricha. WHO is he? He is just a guy whose life started to not be so good - failed marriage, friend's suicide, bad economy. . . so he started a blog which championed 1000 Awesome things to celebrate - like being the first one to get your plate served at dinner. And the point of his whole blog is to remind people to celebrate the little successes we all have and usually forget while we wallow in our sorrows. His little blog went on to win a Webbie for Best Blog. All of which is just an explanation of who he is and what gives him his cred.
Anyhow, his video is about the three things he found that help us see the good in life: Attitude, Awareness and Authenticity. I have that - I have ATTITUDE, I am AWARE that I am a Pug Princess, and I am AUTHENTICALLY great. I have those things going for me already. His chat had me thinking, though,
about my Hundred Happy Thoughts from last year and how fun it was to write them.
And how much better they made me feel when I was a little down, like today. So I think I am going to start another HUNDRED. But what?
I plan to START on Chinese New Year - January 31 - and get a leg up on The Year of the Horse (hey. . . that was an unintended pun there). So help me out with some ideas, Okay?
You have until Midnight (Pacific Time) on January 29 to submit suggestions. I will randomize the entries and chose one. Whoever submitted the idea I chose will win a prize. Not sure what it is BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT and fitting for Chinese New Year.
Put your thinking caps on now! The Checkered Flag drops NOW!
