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
I’m always pumping the awesomeness of Gratitude Journals, selfcare & being present. That’s what this quote means. Don’t focus on getting things done, clearing your plate and staying busy. Instead, pour SOME energy into YOU. Eating righteous, exercising, meditate, read, yoga are all examples of doing YOU. Can you honestly, HONESTLY list a few triggers of yours. Noooooo; not stuff that pisses you off, triggers, what causes fear and why? What triggers can bring you to tears in a *snap* flash? What negative scenarios dance in your imagination when you’re dehydrated? How does lack of sleep affect your shaking and patience? Triggers, learn them, plan for them, prevent them, whatever you need to do to remain as YOU as possible.
3.) I got BEATDOWN in the Superbowl. 🤤 Daaaaaaaawg. I QUIT with seconds left. *shrugs* 😋😋 Call me whatever but EVERYONE knows I don’t hang around when users are showboating and trying to prove a point. My homie KILLED me. It’s my fault for entering the game without practice. I KNEW it would be tough because he knows my plays, systems, goals, EVERYTHING. I don’t know anything about him and it showed on gameday. Why am I grateful? Because I made it that far! I showed MY potnas how I was winning, they waaaay better than me and now, they even know my playbook and…. I’m grateful than a MUG that I learned somethings too. Mainly, I learned I must practice more if I’m gonna win a Superbowl.
2.) Found a REALLY funny movie. 🤣😂 The Binge! Yoo, that mug had us ROLLING in laughter! The premise is; it’s America but all liquor and drugs are banned except for ONE 12hr day when everyone can binge, even people under age. From there, 3 high school friends are chasing girls, getting in hilarious trouble and Vince Vaughn is principal sooooo… PURE comedy and I needed it.
1.) Yesterday’s Gratitude Journal Day blog post shattered my personal record for views! 👀👐🏾🙌🏾 I KNOW it was the subject material. I bought another MS’er a wheelchair and it warmed the eyes of everyone reading. I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful he gets it. I’m GRATEFUL it strengthened my belief that people want that #energy, those #positivevibes but don’t see IT enough. It gave a glimpse into life running a non-profit and the effect on my surroundings. I’m grateful my Queen saw it as “attractive”. My blog had 3 consecutive days of its LOWEST visitors and I was getting worried until THAT post went hard and proved a lil something. 🙏🏾
