Happy New Month! So for the last few weeks there’s been a concept that has been resonating with me and this is the concept of GRATEFULNESS or GRATITUDE. Life throws so many curveballs at us that throw us off and we forget all the good that surrounds us that we ought to be grateful for.
On Monday the 1st of Feb, Tehn Diamond released a new song titled Give Thanks ft. Simba Tagz. I was particularly excited about the release of this song ever since I heard it when they performed it together at Unplugged. However when I actually paid attention to the lyrics, I felt a somewhat “deeper connection” with the song only because I have become aware of the things I can be and ought to be grateful for in this life of mine.
“Cos not every sunrise is guaranteed,
And not every sunset come free,
But if you wanna live life like this,
You gotta thank the highest,”
You can listen to it here.
Last year a good friend of mine urged me to sit down and list all the things I am grateful for. I finally did it and I’ll share a few.
I am grateful for my life, my health, my family, my friends.
I am grateful for the opportunities that I am granted.
I am grateful for the talents and abilities that are within me that I easily take for granted.
I am grateful for the enthusiasm in me when I realise what I am capable of.
I am grateful that I am becoming a better person.
