Grateful for another amazing year💚
As I reflect back on this past year & think about the years to come, the one thing I truly wish for myself is constant gratitude.
May I give it, may I show it, may I spread it.
The name of a person speaks volumes about one’s nature and character. As I grow older, I constantly ask myself - what is my true essence? What is my real purpose? Little did I know that it all resides within my actual name.
The Hebrew translation of Odelia is “Grateful to God”. I once aspired to be a fashion blogger & to build a following based on unique OOTD’s and interesting blog posts. I very quickly realized that the superficial hype of it all wasn’t for me. I needed more depth to stimulate my mind & creativity.
Like everything else in life, social media comes with the good, the bad & the ugly. I hope in some small tiny way, I can be a part of that good. “We Are Odelia” - We Are Grateful to God, is something I thought of months ago, not really sure of what or if I’ll ever make use of it. I decided to make the change today, as a birthday gift to myself & maybe in someway a gift to all of you.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the marathon of life trying to get to so many places, without being thankful for the present moment. As I blow out my imaginary candles right now, I am wishing that eventually this account will turn into your constant reminder to just stop. Take a minute. And say thank you. With this mindset, everything changes. Gratitude turns what we have into enough 🙏🏻
