In 2023, it is my prayer that we do little of assumption and properly take account of the blessings we have received.Let us be intentional about our gratitude. To everyone who purchased from us in 2022, we are because of you. My team and I are so thankful to you. We look forward to creating stunning personalized designs for you and serving you better. To all those we may have disappointed or not served to the best of our abilities, we will do better in 2023.
Let me start by sharing this with you, I am not very keen on festivities. I don’t have any reason as to why this is. I however believe it is an opportunity to reflect, track and look at what has happened in our lives in the previous months. One of the things that always stands out for me during this period of reflection is the individuals that have been influential in my life. I remember one morning I thought to myself, I am sure I will have not more than 10 individuals who I felt had had a significant impact on my life in 2022. So, in my mind, I made I would reach out to these ten individuals who easily came to mind.
I was wrong; I felt lead to sit and write the names of these ten individuals who had been a blessing to me and OMG, I was surprised by the list I made. The list was over 50 individuals. Each and everyone of these individuals had been a blessing to me in one way or the other. This is not an exhaustive list. It included individuals who helped wash my car so I didn’t have to wash it at the bay almost throughout the year and top executives who supported my practice as an artist. I was amazed. To me, being prosperous goes beyond monetary value, it is the relationships that surround me. I had to learn this the hard way. -I will be sharing this along the way so stay tuned.
How could I have restricted the number to just ten individuals? Probably somewhere in my mind, the act of kindness by these individuals was measured. Though this may be true, it still does not excuse the fact that every one of these individuals contributed to making my life easier and putting a smile on my face no matter how small the gesture was. Wow was all I could say to myself. I wondered if I should send them the generic messages that have been forwarded many times. I realized that would not be appropriate because whatever assistance was given by these individuals was personalized to my needs- (It is for this same reason that at TALTOHMA, we believe in personalized waist beads, each individual is unique and deserves to be treated as such. Wink!).
I painstakingly decided to write personalized new year messages to all of them emphasizing and remembering how the help they offered was a blessing. And it’s been nothing but amazing.
You see, sometimes we often minimize what we have when we think about it from the top of our heads. You will be amazed to know the whole perspective changes once you sit and take into account what the facts are. Again, there are individuals who helped without us knowing about it. I may never know that you read this post and shared it. Thank you so much for this kind gesture.
