Life. I thank God everyday for waking me up this morning and giving me breathe. Often times, we focus so much on things that aren’t going right for us that we forget to be grateful for being here. After doing a gratitude journey earlier this year, I realized a lot of things about myself. That journey made me really appreciate life and all all it has to offers.
Parents. Where would I be without my parents. My first loves. My protectors. My advice givers. My everything. I love these two dearly. I’m grateful for every moral, value, and skill that they have instilled in me. I’m grateful for the time they spent with me and them for being them. People always ask me how I’m able to be so confident in life and in myself, and I have to credit my parents for that. They gave me the confidence and the push to be the best version of myself.
Test & Setbacks. There’s beauty in the struggle. There within each test is a lesson that had to be learned. I appreciate all the setbacks in my life, because through those life lessons I was able to find myself and figure out what’s best for me. I learned a lot about myself and who I really am, during some of my lowest moments.
Music is one of the greatest things in the world. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have music. I don’t think I do anything else more than listen to music. I love finding new music and new artists to listen to. Music gives me a high and fills me with so much joy. Music is powerful, mood changing, and just simply amazing.
Family & Friends. Thank you for me supporting me. Listening to me. Being honest with me. Just thank you for being there for me. I have great family and friends and I Just appreciate everything you’ve ever done for me. Shout out to my sister Shatarra, brothers Marvin & Tony, my sweet ole Granny Georgia Dean, and my friends Deja, Cecil, Dominique, Alicia, Jannis, Christian, Diondra, Shay, Neci, Keisha, Ebony, Miya, and I hope I’m not forgetting anyone. But I love and appreciate every last one of you, just for being you!

Hey now! Shout out to you! Lol. I was late on day 5, but it’s up now! I will say this was one of my favorite days. Reflecting on gratitude first thing in the morning makes for a great day!
