Reflection

Gratitude, Nature, Life, Experience

I AM BLESSED and I live a blessed life. Compared to others’ realities, I am privileged. I have a nice home, I have a vehicle, I am able-bodied, I am talented, I am of sane mind, and so forth.

Senegal, Child, Boy, Smiling, Dirt

India, Slums, Poor, Brother, Sister

Poverty, Slum, Shanty Town, Shanty, Poor

Not only am I saying this because of the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, I’m also saying this because it is TRUE.Both of my parents were born in Haiti, I could have very well been brought up in poverty and destitution. I am blessed.

I refuse to transform any energy complaining about the stupid little things that I used to. I have a lot to be grateful for and you do too. This is why I try to make it a habit to reflect on everything I’m grateful for. (Gratitude 7/15 & Gratitude ).
