How many times have you heard that word today? Maybe, we could design a button and every time you hear the word, awesome, we could push it to "bleep" out the word.

However, I heard an interview yesterday on the CBC about The Book Of Awesome by Neil Pasricha. After listening to this young man's explanation of how The Book of Awesome developed from a blog to a book, it got me thinking. At the end of it, the word awesome, from at least his perspective, was not so horrible.

The awesomest (if I can use that word) part about it is the realization that if you enjoy the simple things in your life, you will be happier and more complete in your life. It's the thousands of little things in life that are important or as my mother says, it's the moments that count.

So today, think of your own awesome moment or call it something else, if that word creeps you out!


  1. I agree that word is over-used ~ but I'll try to look at it differently now!! Thanks! A old friend says "if you don't like something, 'change' your mind!! I'll try!!

  2. I guess I'm guilty. Now I will have to watch myself! lol I do love the philosophy behind that book though. It is how I cope, I think. I love the little things in life.

  3. If you think of the word awesome and how it has awe in it, it can take on a whole new meaning. Where do we find awe in our lives? So many little places, really!
