Why is THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF AWESOMENESS on March 10th? Well, because it is Chuck Norris’ birthday (happy birthday!), and is a tribute to the awesomeness of the myth of Chuck Norris. So when you think about how awesome you will be today, think of that myth. Perform some awesome deeds and kick some butt.
We are more often treacherous through weakness than through calculation. – François VI de la Rochefoucault
The concept was apparently conceived back in 2007 by a group of co-workers while working on a project. I’m guessing they got a little bored with the project and needed some diversion. Hey, it happens.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow. – Aesop
Maybe today is the day you discover your superpower. Some people can make this statement: “I’m left-handed, what’s your superpower?” My dad used to say that – but me – no, I’m right-handed, darn it.
Every character has an inward spring; let Christ be that spring. Every action has a keynote; let Christ be that note, to which your whole life is attuned. – Henry Drummond
If you are a child of God, you are automatically awesome! Awesome Christians can walk into a room and make everyone feel better! They are like a happy ball of sunshine – except they are the first to tell you – it is SONSHINE. Christ is our source of AWESOMENESS!
The creators of this day invite us to perform feats of awesomeness. So, what feats of awesomeness will you perform today? You may be thinking it has to be something big and filled with fanfare, but I think it can be as simple as visiting with someone who may be very lonely and not have anyone to talk to.
Maybe today, on Chuck Norris’ birthday, you can visit a widow or widower. Sadly, our society puts its elderly away and forgets them.

Be awesome and visit an elderly person today. There is nothing worse in life than to be left alone when you had at one time been used to companionship. Losing a spouse in death is the most devastating situation in life. Loneliness can be overwhelming. And who knows, those elderly people might teach you a new dance step or two! Uh-huh…
I think Chuck Norris would approve of us using our day (his birthday) to uplift the most forgotten generation. Awesome does not have to mean loud. Our God is an Awesome God – and He spoke the universe into being. He didn’t shout it into existence. 🙂
