Usually when I think of awesome things, they're grand, or larger than life, or something spectacular.
Often, though, awesome things come along quietly and curl up in your lap like a cat.
Last night I lay in bed thinking about yesterday's blog post and wondered about the differences in most of the things I put on my awesome list. None of them were earth-shattering or huge or would even be of much importance to anyone other than me, yet that didn't make any of them any less amazing and awesome to me.
I do have dreams I'm chasing that ARE huge and earth-shattering, but I keep them close in my heart, mostly secret, and I know they may never happen. That doesn't mean I don't think about these awesome dreams and when I can, actively work towards them, but I think it's important to keep my priorities straight and treasure the small wonders. If someone can write a book about one thousand awesome things, all of which are simple yet so satisfying, then surely I can live more happily by embracing my own one thousand awesome things.
My wish for you today is for you to never lose sight of the simple things that mean so much.
Awesome can be written with a large capital "A" or a small, baby, lowercase "a", but they still spell the same thing and mean the same thing, don't they?
