picThe 1000 Awesome Things website is all about looking are the little joys that make life sweet. It’s all about the little things we often take for granted that can really bring us pleasure. It’s about being positive and grateful no matter what the circumstances are.

From popping bubble wrap to the smell of gasoline, getting grass stains to something as normal as taking the price tag off in one clean peel, 1000 Awesome Things just shows the amazing pleasures that rise up within us when we pay attention to the littlest triumphs or sensations in every day life.

Here are some of my favorites:

#909 Bakery air

#553 When a friend returns something they borrowed so long ago you forgot you owned it
#516 Picking up something that turns out to be a lot lighter than you expected
#561 Letting the waves bury your feet at the beach
#510 Hanging out with your mom

Take a look at the site and if you like, leave a comment here and tell me about the smallest things that really thrill you. :)

Life really is awesome after all!

Better and Better, Laura

    I experience many a day!
    ~Enjoying a nice "warm" cup of coffee every morning
    ~Enjoying the "peacefulness" outside early in the morning or late at night when there' hardly anyone around
    ~During the day when there's sooo much people around me in the City where most people are stressed out, I always enjoy "spotting out" the people that look like they're all relaxed & at peace with themselves in the midst of such a stressful environment. There are a lot more of them than you think!
    ~Listening to the birds chirp
    ~Take in a bit of sun: this really brings me to a very good mood!
    ~Simply checking my email very day! (I subscribed to some Yahoo Groups that send me jokes to my inbox every day, so I always start my day with a few laughs!)
    ~Watering my plants (studies show that this lets out negative energy & brings you to balance. All I know is that I always feel better every time I water my plants, and especially because the air in my home becomes more "FRESH").
    ~I can keep on going on and on …………

    1.) among the emails, a small unexpected message from a loved one expressing that love.
    2.) the first wildflower of the spring in the woods.
    3.) finding a wildflower in the woods long after the first frost.
    4.) a surprize no-occasion gift from my woman.
    5.) any smile of a child seen for the first time.
    6.) every sunrise and sunset is a reminder of the blessings of this life.

    All of life is a gift , a blessing, a surprize. Keep your eyes and mind open and you'll find things
    that thrill and enchant you most of the moments of the day.

    One of the littliest things I enjoy at the age of 54-After washing my fuzzy blanket it is so soft and smells so nice. I love to curl up on the couch clutching my soft blanket under my chin and pressing it into my face. Just feels so good all I can do is smile.
