With time and age, we tend to appreciate more and more of the little things that life has to offer. When I look back in time at the things that have occurred throughout my life and what I have, my heart is filled with gratitude and thanksgiving. I can’t say that life has been full of sunshine and cotton candy because there have been many times during my life when I’ve wondered if God was even listening. But in the words of Kanye West…“I’ve been talking to God for so long, that if you look at my life I guess he’s talking back.” I am confident that if we each took the time to look back on our lives, you will agree and come to the same conclusion as I; that we don’t live perfect lives but we live blessed lives.
IKUNA started out as a hope and a prayer that has kind of taken on a life of its own. I see its potential and the excitement drives me every day to do and to be better. We’ve participated in a few events and are fortunate to have met amazing people along the way – many of you through social media. We hope to have the opportunity to meet more of you. We have plans to take more of an active role in doing good things and we look forward to it. We hope that along the way we can also help inspire and motivate one another to tackle those tough challenges and achieve the goals we set for ourselves. It is possible.
I am looking forward to spending this Thanksgiving holiday with my family. In this crazy world we live in, I know many will not be able to spend time with their families due to various circumstances. Loved ones have passed, many have broken family relationships, and some have no family to share the holidays with. For clarification, I don’t use the word family in the traditional sense but echo the words from one of my favorite movies...'Not always the family that is our blood, but the family that can become our blood.' (what movie?) I hope you all have the opportunity to spend the upcoming holidays with the people you love and care about. More importantly, where those feelings are reciprocated.
We thank you for your support and look forward to the fun things we’ve got planned for the very near future. Stay tuned and of course - Happy Thanksgiving peoples.
Overcome. Achieve. Victory. IKUNA.
