The word is: AWESOMENESS

Awesomeness: An unmeasurable amount of awesomenimity something can produce (source: OK, and as a student and collector of words, I must say: how awesome is the word "awesomenimity?" Even if it is a made-up word, I love it! One of my favorite motivational posters is this one that says: "When you get sad, stop being sad and be awesome instead." What great advice that is! We all know, I'm sure, that life can get you down sometimes, and it's easy to fall into the rut of sadness, worry, depression and despair. But how much better it is to be awesome! So that is my reminder for today, perhaps more for myself than for anyone, that it's oh-so-important to think positively, be optimistic, look for the good in every situation, be nice, be patient, take it easy, and smile. It's awesome!
