Coronavirus has spread, killing hundreds of people. Extreme wildfires in Australia, burning down homes (over 2000 homes), killing humans, over an estimated billion animals and their habitats. And most recently, the absolute heartbreaking and devastating news delivered on the morning of Sunday, January 26th– Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Maria Bryant killed in a helicopter crash, among 9 other lives. I’ve been typing that and erasing for the past hour. My heart and love go out to Vanessa, her family, and all the other families involved.
It has been the toughest month of the new year for all humanity. This was not how the year was suppose to start, and not at all how I imagined to wake up on Sunday morning. This viral news has left me, and many others, with a feeling of emptiness and, has impacted us to carefully think about the energy we put in towards our days. The last few days have been such an eyeopener on how we can not take things for granted. Our next mornings and evenings are not promised. We should wake up thankful and blessed every day because we don’t know what can happen in a matter of seconds from the minute we wake.
The month is now over, so let’s move forward stronger than ever, braver than ever, and chasing our goals more than ever. After all, tomorrow isn’t promised, so live your best life every day, be kind to one another, support each other, love as much as possible as you can and count your blessings.
This month’s top-ten playlist includes songs picked from my Darkest Hour playlist on Apple Music. These are songs I listen to when I need to be in a quiet space, I’m feeling down, or just for those rainy days.
