This is great – The Three As of Awesome!

Here is the original video link: http://www.ted.com/talks/neil_pasricha_the_3_a_s_of_awesome.html 

Neil Pasricha is correct!

In life, there are three As of awesome.

The first A is Attitude.

Shit happens in life. There will be times in life that you will be tossed into a well and bad news will seep into your heart. And you always have two choices:

a) You can swirl and grieve and fall apart in self-pity and depression, or

b) You can grieve, AND THEN face the future with sober eyes.

Having a great future means choosing Option B. Choosing to grieve, then cry, then take baby steps in a more positive future.

Sure, you cannot change all the shitty things that happens to you.

But you can always change how you approach life.

The second A is Awareness.

Having a sense of awareness means embracing your inner 3-year old. Being aware means that you seem to see things on the first time too.

Having the appreciation for life. For the things we always take for granted because they always are there.

When you are aware, life becomes a more beautiful place.

The last A is Authenticity.

It’s becoming true to yourself. Regardless on how crazy our interests are or how people find us funny. It’s the wonderfulness of being you and being true to yourself.

It’s following your heart and when you do stuff that you love, you will also feel very fulfilled.

If we can only fill our lives with the three As — Attitude, Awareness and Authenticity — then I betcha, our lives would be so much more fulfilling.

Haha, even if I don’t ever get to buy my 2.55 Chanel bag. 🙂

Have a great weekend!

About Bonita

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!
