I am thankful candle contains a blend of essential oils that help manifest a state of gratitude. Some of these oils include ylang, grapefruit, and sweet orange. Use I am thankful candle when you meditate on the things that have happened in your life. Thankful tends to be the response we give when we receive something. The feelings we experience around thankfulness only last a short while. Gratefulness, on the other hand, is the emotional response we have when we reflect on the things that have been given to or happened to us, both good and bad. Practice gratitude even in turbulent times. That’s the best cure for depression I’ve found so far!
‘Feel no shame for the traumas you’ve experienced and overcome’. I am often reminded of these words by my college counselor. In 2007, I was hit by a car that left me nearly paralyzed. In 2008, when I returned to college, I made dean’s list! Few people knew how hard it was for me to go to class, barely mobile. I took pride in my appearance and getting hit by a car was not part of my plans to stay cute forever. I am sure a lot of you at this point think that I am strong. However, I like to say that my strength comes from the people I’ve chosen to share my life with. These people hold me accountable when I am not my best self. They share in my emotional intelligence and strict belief that although your trauma may not be your fault, it is your responsibility to heal. I am thankful affirm candle was made for them. Not once have they dumped their emotional traumas on me and allowed me to dump mine on them. We respect one another’s boundaries while simultaneously showing love. Thank you Judi, Donnie, Toya, Anna, Christine, Sandy, Zachari, Bianca, Jennifer, Chelsea, Carl, JT, and Laine. Ya’ll are some amazing friends! Thank you to my siblings, but especially Maya for always behaving. Last but not least, thank you to my cousins, James and Mimi!
I am thankful.
“NYAME NTI” This Adinkra symbol called “NYAME NTI”, or “By God’s Grace” is symbol of faith and trust in God. According to The Adinkra Dictionary by W. Bruce Willis: “This stalk is depicted as the staff of life in many cultures. It symbolizes to the Akan that food is a basis of life and that they could not survive if not for the food that God has placed here on Earth for their nourishment.” We live in a culture where we take the basic needs of life for granted. Most of us throw away unwanted food without a single thought on the fact that most people around the world do not have the privilege of food daily. As we enter a season of thanksgiving, enjoy what you do have, be thankful for having them, dismiss any feelings of entitlement for having them. With more gratitude comes more blessings. Look around, think, and observe your life and that of others. You are cared for in every way that truly matters. Be grateful!
