I blog for Change…

As I attempt to orient the windy and often treacherous roads that encapsulate life, here are some of my thoughts on the successes, failures and ultimately the hope and positivity in which I strive for a better world. I also hope that I can use this blog as a platform to elevate the social justice issues that are somewhat forgotten in the modern discourse of staying silent on issues that challenge. Sx

DAY 6: Give Thanks for Your Life

Leave a comment

Today I have the task of giving thanks for my life. I have so many things to be grateful for, so here is my attempt at showing my appreciation for them.

I give thanks for the fact that I have kind, generous and loving parents who have struggled and sacrificed in order to afford me with a better life. I have had so many opportunities which have come my way as a direct result of their everyday actions. They have attributed to me the love and respect which has carried my through life and have always reminded me to be thankful for the little things.

I am grateful for the fact that I have a roof over my head, that I have access to clean & safe drinking water, that I have food on the table every single meal and, most importantly, that I am able to live my life free from danger and persecution.

I am thankful for the fact that I am woman. That my emotions and my empathy drive me as a person. I am grateful for the fact that I will one day, be able to provide life to another human being and share my wisdom, lessons learnt and joys with them.

I have so much to be thankful for and I will not forget it!
