Hello beautiful, kind souls,
Ariana Grande is honestly expressing her thoughts, feelings and emotions to the world on her social media, and I appreciate her vulnerability. It was just a few weeks ago I did a blog here on her new music, and how I sensed a deep feeling of gratitude on her life journey, which has not been easy over the past few years. Despite her huge commercial success, she has been through a lot. Ariana touched on her experience on Instagram yesterday with a lengthy caption expressing where she's at in her journey.
Ariana's caption speak for itself:
"mmmmk .... about to embark on my third tour and am for sure deep as fuck in my feelings. and getting my period so.... this is probably gonna be too much. but i just want to say how grateful i am for my life, for the people in it, for the ups and challenges, for the laughter and the pain, for this music and for the lifelong friendships i’ve made thru making it (that includes my friendship with y’all)... maaaaaaaan... i cant really fathom all that has happened over the past few years. i don’t even really know where i’m going with this post but i’m just grateful to be here still. and excited to see you. i’m prolly gonna cry a lot. a few months ago i told my team i wasn’t even in an okay enough place to tour or work at all and my friends, you guys and this music really saved my life and turned everything around. i’m still healing but i feel a lot lighter as of late and i think this is really going to be such a beautiful time. thank god we are doing this. i can’t imagine what else i’d do and i want you to know how thankful i am...... anyway. i’m gonna go focus on finishing this show for y’all and put my phone away for a little (how much u wanna bet i don’t last a day) so i don’t ruin all the surprises. thank you. for everything. i am so deeply and eternally grateful. life is wild. but your love and this music make it feel so sweet. love u. 🌑"
As always, I'm sending Ari love, good vibes, and healing... in whatever form it takes. She is so strong and it makes me happy that her music, friends and Arianators are a source of strength for her. She not only is helping herself through her music and story, but inspiring so many people out there also going through a struggle.
