Day 2 – #7daysofgratitude

images2

  • I am thankful for my personality. Now I don’t know if we were asked to choose our personality types before coming into the world (I don’t remember…lol) or if God if just handed them out to each one of us, but I totally love my personality. I love that I always (almost always) see the cup half full. I love that I’m mischievous and that I laugh a lot. I believe in second chances, in adventure, in loving, in giving and in creating memorable experiences. Itโ€™s not always bright and chirpy – I do have my dark and dreary days – but I always just ‘know’ that there’s gotta be better.

 

  • I am thankful for my body. I don’t mean to sound vain or vulgar but I love my body. And thank God that I do now. Because I once hated my body and felt very inadequate in it. My legs were too fat, or my eyes were too small, or my lips were too big or why the hell did I have open (or gap) teeth? Which great woman had open teeth? (yeah, I grew up thinking I would be great someday). But I as I grew in love and confidence of myself, I actually began to appreciate my features and loved (and still love) all of me. I love all my perfect imperfections (John Legend…hahaha). At the end of the day, itโ€™s not my body that defines who I am. Because if all you see is my body, then you haven’t met me. Your loss

 

  • I am thankful for the gift of creativity. The mere fact that one can imagine something and bring it to life simply amazing and will forever be intriguing to me. It is additional proof to me that God exists (not that I needed any more proof). I am not the most creative of people; not even close ( I know some really bad ass guys) But to have even a tiny part of this gift given to me is more than I could ever have asked for.

 

See y’all tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Love, Omo
