...every experience and opportunity that has led to this this very moment.

Recently, I have been so busy with the Manchester4Water project (a platform to exchange skills and fundraise money for WaterAid - check out FB page). Leading up to this gig, feeling scattered, stressed and nervous; event planning takes alot of out of a person!! Even on the actual night, instead of giving power to the stresses and being annoyed about people flaking and being unreliable (things we have no control over). I gave mindspace to gratitude. Gratitude anchored me to the present. Every time I was stressed or felt scattered, I reminded myself of why I am doing this, why I am here, why I am grateful for this opportunity, this chance to meet and work with these incredible people! The gig was a success and what an inspiring night!! The night encaptured everything that 4Water is about- sharing passions, creating communities and changing lives! That whole heartedly feeling of I am here today because of all the opportunities and experience that have led me to this very moment in time.
So, inspired by the amazing, creative talent from that night, I wrote a poem:
Refocus your mind
Take your time
Grateful and full of heart
Its a start.
Surrender, breath as a guide
Smile and rise
Create a perspective shift
Find peace, find grace
Today I am grateful
Grateful for today.
What are you grateful for today?
