I always take a moment every Thanksgiving to reflect on all of the things that I am blessed to have in my life.
It so easy to get caught up in the daily grind and hustle and lose focus of what is really important.
I am in the midst of a huge transition this year. You might have noticed the new blog header and page. I am branching out into the DJ business. I will allow me to play music more than just on the radio. It’s still a hobby at this point, but it is something I want to take further.
I have some things happening in my personal life too that might include a career change after this school year.
So without further ado, here is my annual Thanksgiving list of blessings . . .
Hosting a Weekly Hip-Hop Radio Show
I love doing The Word is Bond Rap Radio program each and every week on 94.9 CHRW. I have been able to interview some amazingly talent musicians and share my favourite jams from artists I respect and love.
I hope you have been listening live or checking the podcast.
Being a DJ
This year, I took steps to branch out from the radio show and start deejaying live events. It has been a lot of fun. If you live in the Southern, Ontario Canada area or would like to have me travel to your event, please visit my DJ Services page for information on my rates and how to book me.
It doesn’t get much better than running along a trail and having the sounds of the city fade away. I love getting the exercise, maintaining a good pace, competing with myself for a great time, and just enjoying the whole process.
My Radio and DJ Colleagues
There is a brotherhood here that is hard to explain. I appreciate my fellow radio hosts on CHRW and CFMU and all of the DJs that I have had the chance to work with, or alongside, this year.
Family and Friends
I have managed to stay friends with an ex-girlfriend. That has never happened to me before. I value the friendship and wish her nothing but the best, always.
My family isn’t the same without my dad. I miss him every day. But they are always there for me and I appreciate it more than I can say.
My Amazing Girlfriend
She is kind and supportive. We always have fun together, and my life has been enriched so much by having her in it.
Not too bad a list, eh?
However you are celebrating (or not) . . .
I hope you can take a moment to reflect on your blessings and the great things in your life. We all have something to be thankful for.
