Why keep a Gratitude Journal at all? (This is the saaaaaame intro for every Gratitude Journal entry. It’s here for the newbies to the journey.)
I try to start everyday with a Grateful heart. *duck face* Potna, I ain’t lying. You can check my IG accounts Queen/King. I get a lil raunchy on the Multiple_Sclerosis_Outlaw but I’m calmer, gentle with allthingsonelove. On both, I start my day sharing Gratitudes, stories of Gratitude and anything related to being Grateful. I’m dead ass serious about my Gratitudes because it keeps me present and accountable for my own energy. I recognize and appreciate the actions, words and energy of others intending me good. By starting my day with Gratitude, I have less MS pain, MS symptoms and MS depression because I’m actively pushing my thoughts towards a positive direction of Gratitude. My relationships with others are stronger because my Grateful ass notices what others do for me, to me, WITH me. *bows* I could go on and on and on and on about the benefits of being purposefully grateful buuuuuut… *whispers* Pssst, you know I wrote about it…

Why I chose THIS to blast my day.
Because I DO. Yoo, ya boi, tha disabled dynamite (I’m trying to blow UP! 😛) is about that progress, perspective, goals, passion, purpose. I set a goal of finishing my 24hrs of recertification courses THIS weekend. I kicked it till 4am Friday night. I did my thang on Saturday till 6am with my people. I still finished. #EpicShit #ProudOfMe
3.) I can afford PIZZA!! 🍕 We normally do Friday Night Pizza with the kids. Wife comes home with different specials that she hunted and we grub throughout the 1st half of the weekend. THIS Friday, she said, “Naw y’all. I didn’t feel like dropping that $40. Eat whatever in pantry.”
Sunday FUN Day? Football on? Work done? Classes done? Leftover beer in abundance? (ANY beer for that matter. 😉) Yoga done? *head nod* You picking up what I’m putting down? AND I gotta job? 💸 I DROPPED THAT $50. Even splurged and scooped EXTRA peppers! 🤓 This will NEVER get old. Paying for shit my family needs? *sniff * I FUCKING ADORE PAYING FOR STUFF! #GratefulAF
2.) Everybody got home SAFE. 🙌🏾🙏🏾 I promised myself I was gon kick it. I was gon play with the homies. I was gon hang with the wife. I was gon chill and talk love with my kids. Not only did I do all that. EVERYBODY got home SAFE all weekend. THAT is the best part of the weekend shenanigans & celebrations.
1.) Passed ALL my recertification courses! 💡💡💡 24hrs. 5 courses. I did it all over 2 days. After work on a Friday Eve and again on Saturday night. YUP, awwwww. *touches heart* That’s SO sweet of you. You put together we kicked it till 6am so I must’ve “schooled” immediately after the festivities. I did. I mean, I took a 2hr nap in-between last drink and first click buuuuuut… THANKS YOU UNIVERSE FOR FINISHING!
