Ted Talk: Neil Pasricha: The 3 A's of Awesome

Created a blog/site called 1,000 awesome things to talk about simple universal pleasures that we love, but don't talk about in response to going through hard time in life. 

3 A's of Awesome
1) Attitude: always have two choices: 1) whirl, twirl, gloom and feel bad 2) grief, and look towards future with sober eyes
2) Awareness: seeing the world for 1st time like a kid, who are fascinated with everything they see
3) Authenticity: being you and being cool with that; following your heart, doing stuff you enjoy, talking to people you like talking to; feeling fulfilled 

Book by him: The Book of Awesome

Bane, The Dark Knight (2012)

"Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, molded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man; by then it was nothing to me, but blinding!" 
-- Bane, The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

Benjamin Mee, We Bought a Zoo (2011)

All you need is twenty seconds of insane courage and I promise you something great will come of it.
