I am listening to Jhene Aiko’s new album. Each track is as if she knows everything I have been going through in my relationship the past couple years. I can feel the emotions she put into her work. I am in tears, crying as I sing along with the first few songs I have listened to, reliving every emotion that I have been suppressing. This is going to be a great night for me, I can tell. This is just what I needed.
I started listening to Jhene about 10 years ago and rediscovered her music last summer and I can honestly say I have never been so grateful to hear an artist. I can relate to most of her songs and have gone through very similar situations. She has really helped me stay strong and over come the obstacles I have faced this last year. Tonight she has reminded me that this is not the end. This is not the beginning. I need to smile because at the end of the day, I love myself enough. Enough to keep going. Keep going for my children and to keep going for myself.
Last night I had a dream where both Jhene and Namiko appeared at the same time, shinning brightly like angels, smiling at me.
I don’t know if you’ll ever read this, but thank you so much Jhene for all that you have done for me throughout my life thus far, and for what you will continue to do for me in this life. You are truly an amazing artist and teacher.
You are loved infinitely,
