This day...

Yesterday was one of those days that I was set to autopilot. I rolled out of bed, got ready for the day still half asleep, drove to school without thinking, didn't pay any attention in class, then went to work in a daze. Nothing special happened. Probably because I wasn't even aware of what was going on around me. 

Today I promise to open my eyes and see the beauty that is everyday life. I don't want to think back on what I accomplished each day and not remember anything... Just another day wasted.

Here are 17 ideas to to make today AWESOME!:
1. Have a deep conversation with a stranger.
2. Crack out a coloring book and crayons and have at it!
3. Go for a walk somewhere you've never been before.
4. Dress up in something crazy and have a dance party in your kitchen.
5. Send someone flowers anonymously.
6. Make little notes of encouragement and leave them places people will find them. (Library books, car wipers, restaurant menus, bathroom mirrors, etc.)
7. Take a Zumba class. 
8. Wake up at dawn and watch the sunrise.
9. Make smores over you toaster.
10. Watch your favorite movie in a different language.
11. Forget walking, skip!
12. Go to the nearest Hobby Lobby or any other craft store and spend no more than $10. Then make something to decorate a room in your house.
13. Make cookies and give them to your neighbor.
14. Buy a pet goldfish and give him the silliest name you can think of.
15. Paint or draw your self portrait.
16. Go out to eat and pick your meal by closing your eyes and pointing at the menu.
17. Volunteer for charity.
