Wow. A book that goes right to the heart of what I crave: All things that are Awesome! Over the weekend, I purchased a copy. And I must report, it rocks. It’s about the simple things in life that you sometimes take for granted, or maybe the the things that are tremendously important to you. Either way, this great book reminds us that even with conflict, war, and so many things to feel bad about, life presents us with many more reasons to embrace positivity.
I give thanks every day for all that I have. And despite setbacks and missteps, I am happy for the daily opportunity to be more productive, more action-oriented, and yes, more awesome. This book is a reminder of what I aim to do. Get yourself a copy!
In the recently launched Huffington Post Books section, there is this video below about a children’s book, which is aptly titled The Awesome Book. It’s written and illustrated by blogger Dallas Clayton. This video shows Clayton talking about how the book’s message is resonating with kids internationally. After seeing this video, you’ll agree: Dallas rocks!!!
No, I’m not kidding. There is indeed an Awesome Foundation that gives out a monthly grant to someone, anyone, who can come up something awesome to do. Here is an idea of what they look for:
Submit an awesome idea. If we pick it, we’ll give you $1,000 in cash. Yup, $1,000. Cash. Maybe even in a brown paper bag. You’ll also get access to coworking space at BetaHouse for the month of your grant. The only condition is that you be willing to tell us (and some of our friends) about what you did a month later. If we don’t pick it, don’t stress. We’ll pick a new awesome idea next month.
So put your thinking caps on and be as awesome as you know how to be. And support this and so many other charities that are doing their best to give back.
