I started something today at work, thanks to a dear friend who sits next to me, that I think is going to help me appreciate the little things in life. Including Mondays. I have started, every Monday morning, to write down five things that I’m thankful for. It can be something as simple (but brilliant) as Reeses Peanut Butter Cups or as serious as being alive. But I’m going to do this every Monday, and something tells me it’s going to make me a happier person and it’ll remind me of the good things rather than letting me focus on any of the negative things that really don’t compare. Today’s picks are a firm reminder that I’m thankful to be alive. This is dedicated to Whitney Houston, Nate Dogg, and Biggie – and their friends and families – we’ll never forget you!
1. “Whitney” – Norwegian Recycling (Adele x Whitney Houston x Florence and the Machine x Bruno Mars)
2. “Just a Poppa” (Biz Markie x Notorious B.I.G.) – DOSVEC
3. “Juicy Party” (Mac Miller x Notorious B.I.B. x Fatboy Slim x Buffalo Springfield) – Ridgewood Social Club
4. “Deny Strings” (Fabolous x Nate Dogg x Classixx) – The Hood Internet
We miss you guys. Yo, happy Monday, though.
