In the spirit of Autumn and Thanksgiving, I have compiled a mix tape of some of my favorite chill tracks that get me into that cozy mood. The beautiful melodies, smooth piano tunes and beats are LOVE. It just makes me want to put on my chunky sweater with a cup of coffee in hand. Closing my eyes, feeling the tunes dance around me, with a warm smile on my face.
I hope you guys enjoy this mix tape as much as I enjoyed putting it together. If you listen to the tracks closely in order, it sort of tells a love story <3
Anyway, instead of writing a long caption on my Instagram post, I thought I'd post my thoughts here.
I'm so thankful for...
everything in my life. Sometimes I forget how blessed I am when I have my not-so-good days, but in between it all...I'm so utterly thankful for everything. The people (family&friends) who have remained constant in my life and to the new friends that I've made in the last year or so...I'm so blessed to have them. They each play a certain role in my Life and I feel like I have a part of them in me, which has inspired me and helped me grow into the woman I am today and the woman I strive to be. I learn so many things from these people, whether it be emotionally, creatively, and personal growth. I have this strong connection with these individuals; face-to-face or through technology.
I'm also thankful for those people who are no-longer a part of my life. I knew that we were meant to connect at one point in time, and I still feel like I have bits of them still within my soul, because they helped me grow in the past. I have no sense of hatred, regret or hold any grudges towards these people of the past because what was meant to be was meant to be. All I hope for is that these people of my past continue to live life at their best and that their journey through life is filled with happiness and love.
I'm thankful for good health, good vibes and good food <3
And last but not least, I'm thankful for Art. Without Art, I don't know what I would do! It's the one thing that puts my soul in sheer bliss. When I am creating, my heart is content and I feel that I am living my life to its fullest potential. I create what makes me happy whether people like it or not. I create because I thoroughly enjoy it. The whole process. Seeing my progression. That feeling I get in my body when I paint my ideas onto paper. Making magic happen.
Initially, my intention when creating my Art wasn't to inspire people around the world, it was mainly because I knew that I loved it. When you love what you do, you should do it! The part about inspiring others is a definite bonus and it totally gives me a really warm feeling and motivates me to continue creating, but I don't do it for other people. I do it for me. <3
So thank you guys for your continuous support. You guys make creating extra fun, and I'm so so SO HAPPY to know that my Art has sparked inspiration in you. <3 I hope that you all continue to follow my journey and please continue to share your journey with me as well. It's important to share your creative journey with others because it makes creating much more brighter. :)
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all. Have fun and be safe.
