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…
That whole “it-ain’t-all-good-BUT-it-ain’t-all-bad” is the talk my son and I had earlier this week. There are a LOT of moving parts with my hunt of #wellness, HOME-schooling, lack of social peers, family’s diet has changed, etc. He said he understood but I feared he’s missing the point. He repeated, “Daddy. I get it.” and I left it there. Part of being grateful is recognizing the efforts of OTHERS to see you, try working with you, discuss stuff with you, GROW with you. #respect
3.) Shopping is DONE. 🛍 *wipes brow* Now, let me be clear, I didn’t select or choose NONE of the gifts. Queen handled up on that (pretty much as usual) but it’s done. *makes muscle* #Teamwork making the holidays work!
2.) Received the NEW shirts 👕👕 WE (Wife & I) are building an online store from allthingsonelove. Yuuup. I’ve tried several times but I know I was overloaded in the past and just trying to make some bucks. 🤷🏾♂️ THIS time, I’m working the content of the blog and SHE pushing the other aspects. Below in my first
