In any event, I've noticed that focusing on the awesome gives me a sense of calm. It reminds me there's always something to be thankful for, even on the crumbiest of days. A supportive family, healthy children, a roof over my head.
There's a fun blog out there, called 1000awesomethings.com. It points out the simpler awesome things we might take for granted, such as making it halfway, picking the fastest moving line at the grocery store checkout, and fully justifying whatever terrible thing you're eating. It's positive and fun!
It's awesome that I've finished my nonfiction outline. How about you? What awesome thing are you focusing on today?
