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 want readers to understand that talking about your Gratitudes, showing them off, posting Gratitudes is ALL part of the process. The more energy I put INTO recognizing & appreciating the GOOD around me, the MORE good I see and a cycle of internal, POSITIVE energy is repeated throughout my day and life. I used to be worried about “getting on people’s nerves” for talking UP and blasting what I’m loving about my day. Now, I care LESS about that specific worry. If MY energy and perspective bothers YOUR mindset, I must be influencing others, affecting the environment and THAT is soooo much better than BEING affected.
3.) My Dollar Shave Club arrives today! 🙏🏾 *jigging in wheelchair* Fellas, I don’t know if y’all KNOW buuuut the ol’ Dollar Shave Club has deodorant, body sprays, toothbrushes, wipes and all kinds of goodies for the Kings that do all that EXTRA stuff. Me. *pointing to self* I’m a KING that does the extra stuff. I am the Deion Sanders version of Multiple Sclerosis and I’ve told y’all… “If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, you paid GOOD.” #MicDrop
2.) Found a matching set of PJs, undershirt and DRAWS! 😋😉 AND to continue with THAT point, lemme segway into this matching set I found. Nope, I’ve NEVER worn it. Nope, I didn’t know I had it. Yup, it will be in my regular arsenal going forward. I felt GREAT rocking this maroon set. My Queen even said said something. Hell, my daughter made the off-hand remark, “Ok. I see ya Daddy with your matching new PJs. Who you think you are?” *beating chest* I’m a GORILLA DADDY GAH DOG IT! *howling at the buddha on the wall* I don’t know man. I’m feeling it today. *wink*
1.) Finally finished my Therapeutic Intercellular Cleanse 🙌🏾👏🏽👎🏾 WHEW! I’ll have to write a FULL review on this product but to be blunt, the shit didn’t work.
It had my stomach churning, groaning, burning right under my belly button. Maaaaan, Queen/King, Sis/Bro… it HURT. At different points over the 7 days, I felt the “pressure/pain” building up, getting worse. It was that crucial, critical moment where I had to decide if I continue or stop. I chose to continue because I thought that was going to “get me over the hump” of my eternal plumbing issues. Again, let me clear, it did NOT get me over a damn thing. I’m NO doctor but for me, it like pushed everything to the brink of a bowl movement but I had few actual BMs. It increased my time in the RR but I didn’t boo boo NEAR enough. #Miserable Because I had a successful BM, ONCE per day, I thought it was working. NO MA’AM. Naw Dawg. I should have been moving shit like weight with all that pain and pressure building, bloating me up, hardening my tummy. Today, Sunday, 11/29/2020, I broke down and took the Mag07 Digestive Cleanse and Detox.
That mug got shit moving. LITERALLY, I had BMs within hours. It made the entire experience with the Therapeutic Intercellular Cleanse a colossal LEARNING EXPERIENCE. I wasn’t supposed to be feeling that way, the churning, groaning, burning, the pain behind the belly button. *drops to BOTH knees* I am so GRATEFUL to have finished. Now, time to go back into the stuff that works, those sweet potato smoothies and concentrating on the #foodismedicine elements.
