You are AWESOME!

"No one's perfect, but everyone can be awesome!"

Did you know that today, March 10th every year is the International Day of Awesomeness

I found this out through my friend and inspirationalist Lance Ekum through his collaborative blog The Jungle of Life.

Why March 10th? Well, the organizer, Kevin Lawver, says that March 10th is Chuck Norris' birthday. Not because of Chuck himself, but because it is just such an awesome day!

They encourage Feats of Awesomeness and even have a Twitter account where people are registering their thoughts about being awesome!

So what can you do to celebrate your awesomeness and the awesomeness of others?

My friend Lance says...
Jump up and down!
Eat ice cream!
Kiss your neighbor! (okay...on second thought, maybe you want to save that one until March 18th...Awkward Moments Day!)
Light a candle!
Do a back flip!
Dance in the streets!
Sing a song!
Tell someone how awesome they are!

And I would add...
Write an honest to goodness letter to someone telling them you think they are awesome
{from redvelvetpress on Etsy}
Hug someone you think is awesome
Write a poem to celebrate awesomeness
Cook something tasty...and awesome
{from Papallama on Etsy}
 
Bake cupcakes, add a candle and blow it out, wishing for more awesomeness this year
Do something special for yourself today because...

You are AWESOME!!  Today...and EVERY day!

(There. I've said it. If you are reading this, you are AWESOME to me!)

And that is a 'something good'!

Thank you for the eye post Erin and the visual extravaganza!! Those are wonderful posters. As I was reading this I realized something I don't think I have ever thought of myself as awesome. My mom who is a wonderful kind and loving lady, always thought that being positive and saying positive things about yourself was bragging, so I think in my subconscious and outward self I didn't ever toot my own horn. I am trying to be better about saying nice things about myself but it is definitely a work in progress.

Have a wonderful weekend!! You are one of my good things today Miss Erin!!! You rock awesome sauce!!!

I wasn't feeling awesome at all today, but after reading all about being AWeSoME, I think I can go with it! Erin, you are awesome every day, really!! Loved the Hippo in the last picture because that's hubby's nickname for almost his entire life!

Lola said...

The "simple truth" is ... you're AWESOME! =)

I was not aware that such a day existed! Well, in honor of such an awesome day... you're totally awesome! <3 I'm so glad I got to know you through the Challenge of Music.

Also, I can't believe I forgot to mention this before -- Zoe Keating wrote back to me about my necklace! She also retweeted my tweet, causing a nice little spike in blog stats for the week. :)
