Experiment With Gratitude

Be Inspired..!!

World Music Day 2021

Good afternoon everyone!

I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week!

Today, Monday 21st June 2021, is World Music Day 2021!! This special day is an annual celebration of music, which originates in France back in 1981, where it was named “Fête de la Musique”.

Normally this day is celebrated by musicians performing in the streets & in concerts, but I like to look at the day a little bit differently. Instead, I am going to be using today to reflect over the role that music has played in my life! So, let’s get on with it!

For so long, I thought that self-love was about how you feel about yourself, but it wasn’t until I started on my own self-love path that I realized that it was more than that.
