Happy International Day of Awesomeness

Yes Today is AWESOME and so are you.  And so am I for that matter.

My daughter declares everday to be "I am awesome day" as she declares it on her twitter page and most every other social media page with links to a page about her. One of the links she posts on her bio is IamAwesome.com

But March 10 is officially International Day of Awesomeness.

According to the lore it began in 2007 and is attributed to a tweet posted by Kevin Lawver and coincidentally coincides with Chuck Norris' birthday - the most extreme of awesomeness in one human being. How Awesome is that?!

Along with Norris' many accomplishments throughout his life he also created the martial art Chun Kuk Do, which is based primarily on Tang Soo Do and includes elements from every combat style he knows. Like many other martial arts, Chun Kuk Do includes a code of honor and rules to live by. These rules are from Chuck Norris's personal code. They are:
  • I will develop myself to the maximum of my potential in all ways.
  • I will forget the mistakes of the past and press on to greater achievements.
  • I will continually work at developing love, happiness and loyalty in my family.
  • I will look for the good in all people and make them feel worthwhile.
  • If I have nothing good to say about a person, I will say nothing.
  • I will always be as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
  • I will maintain an attitude of open-mindedness.
  • I will maintain respect for those in authority and demonstrate this respect at all times.
  • I will always remain loyal to my God, my country, family and my friends.
  • I will remain highly goal-oriented throughout my life because that positive attitude helps my family, my country and myself..
