1000 awesome things

Ever since I heard about 1000 Awesome Things, I’ve been trying to spread the word to anyone and everyone. It’s such a brilliant concept. Basically, 1000 Awesome Things is a time-ticking countdown of 1000 awesome things. Launched June, 2008 and updated every weekday. As one reviewer said it, “A lovingly beautiful blog. It’s like being a three- or four-year-old and looking at the world for the first time again. Read it and you’ll feel good about being human.”. So true. Whenever you feel stressed from wedding planning take a break to read a few excerpts–it’s guaranteed to uplift your mood. Here are a few of my favourites from the 1000 list:

#994 Waiters and waitresses who bring free refills without asking

#986 When you pull to a red light and the guy in front of you nudges up a bit so you can make a right turn

#514 Seeing a license plate from really far away in your home town

#527 The night before a really big day

#530 Listening to couples tell you how they met

#538 Laughing so hard you start crying

#547 Finding treasures in your Spring jacket pocket

#552 When you went to the gym yesterday

#572 Learning a new keyboard shortcut

#577 Looking at the clock and seeing that it’s 12:34

#627 When your friends working in fast food restaurants give you a little extra

#635 When the hiccups stop

#687 Turning off all the lights during a thunderstorm

Andddd I have hundreds of others to recommend. But I don’t want to spoil the fun, you’ll have to go to the site (or buy the book) to read more awesome ideas. Enjoy!
