See a Singh, Salute a Singh

It was in #Brixtonyears ago, I attended a B-boy competition with @therealnihal. We were on stage, part of the cypher, watching some of the greatest dancers in the world defy the rules of gravity, and remind the world why Hip Hop is the greatest music to ever exist.

There’s nothing more important to our happiness than expressing gratitude. We can say THANK YOU everyday for the big, the small and everything in between; it’s just up to us to create those reasons. Alongside the wonderful folks at @chaptersindigo, I created a month supply of gratitude with the challenge to give out one card per day and see how it impacts the way you, and those around you feel.
