My Mantra

Dejah here!

I hope everyone’s week went well! This weeks post is going to be a bit different from the rest. Instead of showing recipes or conducting interviews, I am going to be sharing with you my mantra. For those of you who don’t know what a “mantra” is, it is essentially a phrase or word that has spiritual meaning to one’s self that is repeated frequently. 

The mantra is: 

“With every breath I take I will appreciate my existence”

This mantra is something I whisper to myself at least 10 times a day. Before this mantra I failed to appreciate the most prominent thing in life, being alive. With all the commotion and chaos happening in my life, I often found myself easily getting lost. Hearing these few words trigger something in my head and reminds me to take a few steps back and to truly be grateful for every breath I take. Life is the greatest gift and I know that some people may not see it that way right now but it is. We are all so blessed, I suggest you celebrate and appreciate every single day of it.

Two years ago this wonderful mantra was sent to me by Eternal Sunshine. Eternal sunshine is an app that I love dearly which sends you daily inspirational quotes, prayers, meditation exercises, inspirational podcast, mantras, personal reminders and more throughout your day. This app is truly mind blowing! Not to sound crazy or anything but 99% of the time when I feel like I am in some kind of a funk or just in a bad mood, I would get a notification from this app saying exactly what I needed to hear at the exact time I need to hear it. I was told about this app by my best friend and now i'm telling you about it, I strongly recommend getting it!
