Gratitude Journal Day #31: Friday, 10/30/2020

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 start my day…

Because yesterday an up/down, topsy curvy, 24hrs that felt like 42 hrs. MY word for today is focus. Focus on what’s in front of me, NOT behind, NOT finna catch up, NOT beyond the trees. Focus on what is RIGHT, dead ass, bullseye marked, in my path and finish. No distractions, less worries, focus because that’s how you stop tripping on stuff outside your lane. πŸ€”πŸ˜‹

3.) Grateful for everyone that shared my birthday Gratitude Post! πŸ–€ Thanks to y’all, NEW record for visitors! Two days in a row, the daily record was beaten. Ooo! The monthly record was shattered as well! See, I got this plan to vacate America. I NEED a popping blog to be a source of income, adventures, stories, ideas, recommendations, referrals, BOOKS. I’ll slang my storytelling, teach on a beach and settle into life as a new shaman. #dreams To get a popping blog, I gotta crush these posts, entertain these readers and hope/pray/wish that folks start sharing my content. I am. I do. Patience & dedication to the craft are next. While I wait, I’ll be “gratitude’ing” like a MUG for everyone spreading my messages. 😎

2.) My birthday started rough. I was crying before lunch. Real deal boo hoo’ing. Grateful the Mrs. was home to catch me, rub my head & shoulders and let me cry myself back into hustling, grinding and building. πŸ–€πŸ–€ Grateful, grateful and more grateful that it is over. I started so well and went so low. Then back up, only to crash. Maybe it was just a MS-y day. Maybe πŸ˜‘ it was Mercury Retrograde but I was hurting all day after the early morning waterworks. Inside, outside, everywhere. (My wife hit me with, “Go to a doctor” like that’s really a freaking option. Told y’all bout all that sacrificing YOUR health & wellness for others. THEY don’t have the ability to see YOUR sacrifice as a sacrifice. To them, you’re fine because that’s what YOU always do, did, done and survived to rinse & repeat.) Family went out to eat as a surprise celebration and I… I wasn’t good. The food was cool beans but nothing to brag about. We tried going somewhere and hit some crazy pothole. Tried to get papers notarized but the notary was 2hrs late to work. I spilled red bull on my work area. My check was $200 short. WTF?! TODAY, I finally had enough to order my kids laptops so I could pull them OUT public school. Laptops were sold out. Know what? I’m 🀐. It’s over. I did nighttime yoga, meditated damn near 15min on ocean waves but skipped the workout. I could tell I was squeezing, flexing, holding poses waaay too much and likely to fall or have some crazy, home accident. I’m grateful that I  recognized the potential for such a dramatic and costly injury so I laid DOWN.πŸ™„

1.) After ALL the baseline negativity, SOME-body or SOME-energy took pity on my black, beautifully disabled ass. The last hour of my day ended with my check issue being resolved! πŸ’±πŸ’±πŸ’± Thank the engineers behind all this direct deposit, remote banking. Chhhhhhiile…. πŸ₯πŸŽΊπŸ™πŸΎ With the money fix, I’m finna solve ANOTHER issue, my kids’ laptops. That made two things wrong, turn RIGHT. The yoga class I wanted, I can GET. Bruuuuuuuuuh…. are y’all picking up what I’m putting down? Three things that had me crying were now completed or in my box to do Friday. πŸ€œπŸΎπŸ€›πŸΎβœŠπŸΎ When those happened, I put on PJs and ambled into the living room for a respectful meditation of thanks. Of course, that led to a GOOD workout session, which injected happy pheromones, which calmed my nerves, which pushed the whole “be present” thinking, which blocked some of the dark thoughts, which I gave more Gratitude for. πŸ€—
