So I celebrated my birthday over the weekend & I started thinking about life, as we all tend to do this time of year. I really just had to give thanks. Even though I may not have achieved all my goals or ticked off everything from my vision board. I’m alive, healthy & moving towards it a day at a time.
A lot is happening at the moment, both in the world & personally & I just reached a place at the top of the year where I just refuse to let the external shake the internal. Sometimes it’s easier said then done, but Im really making a point to be mindful.
Counting my blessings with a blessing Jar!
This new years eve, I decided not to go the usual route of seeing the old year out by going out & entering the new year drunk, nursing a hangover or just plane exhausted.
Instead I burnt some sage, meditated & rang in the year with starting a blessing jar. I told myself that each time I feel a blessing, I would acknowledge it, write it down on a piece of paper, fold it up & put it into the blessing jar (I hung my crystal pendants around the mason jar for extra energy).
This way I can keep my vibes high through gratitude & if i’m going through a challenging point (which we all do at times) I can just dip into my blessing jar & be reminded that good things happen & to stay encouraged!
I feel like when you’re grateful for the small things, the big things follow & that gratitude really is the gateway to abudance. However i’m human after all & the tendancy to overthink or dwell on the negative is all too easy, I want more balance & that’s why I keep a blessing jar!
I got mine off Amazon, & it was pretty cheap. I think it could be an amazing tool to use with children, to practice mindfulness & gratitude. You could turn it into an activity & get them to customise & decorate their own jars.
Let me know if you have any dope tips & tricks you’ve picked up along the way that keep the vibes high.

That being said, i’ll sign off with my favourite song from Biggie.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of his passing, Im grateful for his life! 🙏🏿 ….
