Blogger Neil Pasricha uses the power of the Internet to encourage optimism, highlighting the simple pleasures that make life worth living. From warm clothes taken straight out of the dryer to free refills in a restaurant, Pasricha illustrates how small pleasures lift individuals out of tough situations.
The blogger shares his family's immigration to Canada, explaining how their happiness often came from simple pleasures that included having running water and electrical power. This compelling keynote includes a personal story of love and marriage turned to heartbreak and the loss of a close friend due to mental illness.
In times of trouble and despair, Pasricha reminds individuals to recall life's many simple pleasures. His blog, 1000 Awesome Things, aims to encourage happiness and optimism with three important factors: attitude awareness and authenticity; three things that help one embrace all the goodness around them.
