Hello Everyone and Happy Friday 🙂

Today, I wish to talk about Gratitude.

We live in a world where everyone judge you for everything. They judge your religion, or your lack of faith, they judge you wealth or your poverty, they judge the way you raise your children or the decision to never have them.

You are judged on your weight, your skin color, your accent, your nationality, your gender, your clothes and if you’re strong enough to stand with your back straight and your chin up despite that dreadful and unfair burden upon your shoulders, then you are judged for being uncaring and haughty, cold and distant.

If you crumble under the weight of their cruel stares and their callous words, then you are judged for being weak, for giving up a fight you never tried to enter in the first place.

People judged your heart, and they judged your feelings.

Well, I write this Shatzi today in defiance of all of that. I’m so, so grateful for the life I have. I’m so grateful for who I managed to become, for the things and the people that have helped build me up. I’m so grateful for everyone who shares my life. Nobody has the right to judge that.

I’m not ridiculous, or corny, or stupid or naive because I feel gratitude to whoever is looking out for me and my small existence. Whether you believe in God, in fate, in yourself or all of the above, be grateful for what you have, take a moment to appreciate how incredibly lucky you are to have a roof above your head, a job that help you pay rent, enough to eat three meals a day, friend, family, lover that cherish you for who you are…

If you are safe, warm and pleased today then be grateful for it, because there is someone else in the world, a man, a woman or a child, working as hard as you do, carrying the same aspirations for happiness and love that you do, but doing it while being cold, scared and alone.

Despite everyone and everything, try to be grateful. After all, it is always so much better than being hateful.

Song of the day

Stacie Orrico “Maybe I Won’t Look Back”

I woke up from dreaming
I dreamed I got a call from a friend of mine, she sounded really lonely
But I had somewhere to be
I said I’ll call you later
‘Cause I really had to go, I can’t be late, she’ll be okay, this is important
Then I forgot completely[Bridge:]
You can be who you choose to be
But whether you do, or whether you don’t
Depends on your priorities
And I know that it’s not easy

[Chorus:]
I’m looking for the peace to find some sleep tonight
‘Cause I’m
Not very proud of the way I have lived today
But if I choose to
Follow Him along the way
Then maybe I won’t look back
Feel like time has gone and passed me by
Then maybe I won’t look back

[Bridge 2:]
On those days I could have said something
In those times when help was needed I was busy
Was it worth it, no I don’t think so, Cause now I see the moment is gone
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile but I was selfish,
But if I change my heart today, tomorrow it may be okay
And maybe I won’t look back

I woke up from a nightmare
Where I was talking down this street, invisible and no one else could see me
All my chances were gone
I can’t get your attention
I’ve had many things to say, but never tried, afraid you wouldn’t listen
Should of done it all differently

[Bridge]
You can be who you choose to be
But whether you do, or whether you don’t
Depends on your priorities
Lord help me to choose them wisely

[Chorus]
I’m looking for the peace to find some sleep tonight
‘Cause I’m
Not very proud of the way I have lived today
But if I choose to
Follow Him along the way
Then maybe I won’t look back
Feel like time has gone and passed me by
Then maybe I won’t look back

[Bridge 2]
On those days I could have said something
In those times when help was needed I was busy
Was it worth it, no I don’t think so, Cause now I see the moment is gone
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile but I was selfish,
But if I change my heart today, tomorrow it may be okay
And maybe I won’t look back

[Rap:]
I can’t hold back, I can’t be shy
This is my big chance to be living the life, I gotta
Stand up strong and take the ride
Throw all those useless excuses aside
So much to do, I got a lot to say
I don’t always understand but I’ll follow anyway
‘Cause there is a bigger plan, a destiny
I can’t waste this precious time

[Chorus]
I’m looking for the peace to find some sleep tonight
‘Cause I’m
Not very proud of the way I have lived today
But if I choose to
Follow Him along the way
Then maybe I won’t look back
Feel like time has gone and passed me by
Then maybe I won’t look back

[Bridge 2]
On those days I could have said something
In those times when help was needed I was busy
Was it worth it, no I don’t think so, Cause now I see the moment is gone
In some way I could have done something
A thoughtful word a simple smile but I was selfish,
But if I change my heart today, tomorrow it may be okay
And maybe I won’t look back

Then maybe I won’t look back [x2]
