Thank you, next went viral when Ariana Grande crooned in her slightly sexy yet sweet yet heavy voice. While for her it was a reference to moving on from lovers and becoming friends with herself this phrase may have wider resonance in modern day life. Ever feel like you have reached your goal and say thank you, next, without feeling any excitement for what once seemed an unsurmountable task or conquest that if achieved is the missing piece to the happiness puzzle. Because where you’re at without a goal is normal and unexciting and unhappy. While jumping from goal to the next we lose sight of what is really important, it’s the journey to the goal and of course giving thanks to yourself and any other circumstances / people that led you to your goal. If you ever want to feel genuine happiness it is important to take a moment and reflect on all that you have accomplished.
Gratitude not only makes you appreciate your life a bit more but also boosts your confidence as you take stock of all that you have been able to achieve. To give you an example, we at Team My Happy Bae give thanks for the opportunity to be able to create this amazing happiness program to share our happiness to be able to live a balanced and healthy life. The three founders Yana, Slava and Kritika (myself) also give thanks for the opportunity to use our friendship to build an amazing business that helps explore our creativity and talents.
I personally am thankful for so much from the bad to the good as it’s all a lesson. But today I’m thankful for:
- I am thankful for fashion and how it influences people and culture.
- I thank God for the opportunity to be able to live in Dubai and learn and grow over the last 7 years. From changing careers to meeting new friends this has been a rollercoaster one that I don’t regret jumping on.
- I’m also thankful for My Happy Bae to happen to me at a time when I really needed to change my career path slightly to doing something that lights up my eyes when I think about it. Seven years of doing a desk job have somewhat taken a toll on my health and body. I needed to take a step back and what better way than to create a product of love with people you love so so much.
- I’m totally thankful for a body that heals and loves back, sound mind, loving family and friends and also for the abundant opportunities that exist in the world that could be my accomplishments someday.
