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 it was HIGH time (No pun intended) that I explain healing for ALL the people in the back. *squints hard at THOSE people* Hey y’all! I see ya witcha lil, ol’ questions. Come on down. *shrugs* Nevermind, I’ll come to YOU. FIRST, health is your physical being. WELLNESS is mind/heart/soul/body. ANYTIME I’m discussing wellness, healing, remedies, PREVENTIONS, systems, etc., I’m talking mind/heart/soul/body. HEALING is when you’ve moved past the fear & pain of your illness, injury to ENJOY your life. *steps back* Are you picking up, what I’m putting down? Understanding? OVERstanding? I don’t need to walk again to heal. I could be sipping alkaline water, beaches of Belize, manual wheelchair, teaching kids English and healing. Maybe I’m rolling my eyes at the steep walkways in China, unable to access areas unable my shaking is too much and nobody can “tincture” me up. Healing means I’m no longer stressing over employment, in pain without a way to manage dozens of symptoms. Healing is in the mind/heart/soul/body. I don’t want less pain, if the exchange is my energy/inner G. *beats chest* I’m healing because I know my purpose is helping others, so I help others. I’m healing because I know my passion is storytelling, connecting THIS to that. I’m healing because I’m no longer terrified and confused about MS, instead I actively pursue ways to repair myself while hunting my goals.
3.) My daughter got her car. 👏🏾 #SaluteMyAssOff to her Pops for that. *tips hat* She has wanted a Jeep since a child. Playing with dolls and stuff was never really her thing but she’d run a game of HOUSE till bedtime and beyond. She’s always been an Indy type of lass, Indy meaning independent, and when her Dad scooped a Hummer, it was over. It’s all she wanted too. I’m grateful AF he came through, insurance, title, walked her through potential issues, that good roadside assistance, everything. Me? I was taking pictures of the special moment since everybody else was paying attention to the MAN. 📸😉The PLAN is humming along.
2.) 1st session of Hatha Yoga. 🖤🖤 Quuuuuuuuueen… *raises eyebrows* Sandeep (I think that’s his name. 🤷🏾♂️) whiiiiiizzzoooped ME. Look, dude looked authentic than a mug, Zoom meeting popping and full, on time and tore me up. I learned about the healing energy of the hands and how to use it, how to sit properly in that textbook, cross-legged position and the difference between open legs and closed legs when doing the cat-cow pose. *bro hug* I would’ve taken notes but Sandeep was rolling too fast and spoke WAY too soft. I’m absolutely grateful and I’ll be back on Wednesday. 💪🏾💪🏾
1.) Thriftbooks.com!! 💻📖😘 So, you KNOW we pulling dem kids *looks over shoulder* OUT the public school system. Well, we found a program that addresses African American literature, achievements and history. The book for the course was $80. I respect that but my money funny and credit don’t get it. The alternate sites were even MORE expensive, one was $140. 😑 The Mrs. got that sucka for $16 at Thriftbooks and problem was solved. *makes BOOM mime*
