What I’m GRATEFUL about today…
3.) My niece ALWAYS sending me pictures & messages. This is EXACTLY what I mean when I brag on how this Gratitude Journal is changing me, strengthening my mindset and building my relationships. I used to think of messages were generally irritating unless from certain, specific people. Now? Now, I’ve grown with all these chronic illnesses and disease progression. I try to make sure I respond back to EVERY message. Ain’t nobody gotta be thinking about me! NOBODY. My niece sends cute pictures, videos of she and her brothers (S’up nephews.) and her drawings. We can actually have a good back-and-forth and when you really think about it, it distracts me from a lot of pain and discomfort. S/O to my niece! 🖤🖤🖤
2.) 2nd Interview and I went all in on ME. Yoo. 🤫 I wasn’t TRYING to mess up nothing but I HAVE to be me, a King learning his worth, growing and building his Kingdom. What had happened was the school gave me a script/lesson to “teach”. I had a mock student group, timed, quick tutorial on the system & everything, then show time. It was basic, the War of 1812 buuuuuut… I couldn’t. I could NOT teach War of 1812 and ignore slavery and the annihilation of the Native population. I remixed it. Okay, I created my own presentation entirely but I based it on theirs and added stuff, slavery, Tecumseh, Cornell Notes, Avant Bucks. 🤷🏾♂️ Did it work? No idea but I felt INCREDIBLY comfortable doing the interview and answering questions about why I would do that. I’m not faking the front to get that job CHUMP! Nope. No. Sick as I am? As peaceful as life is? Maaaaaaaaaaaaan…. I’m grateful for the opportunity, hope I get it and PROUD to have the gall, balls to be my-DAMN-self going forward.
1.) Ran out of Lion’s Mane Mushroom but a fresh one was ready *drinking water* Real talk. Ahhhhh.*sets cup down* I’m soooo grateful that this Queen of a BLACK woman keeps up with my vitamins and supplements! She periodically asks what I’m low on and keeps it in stock. Lion’s Mane Mushroom and Niacin combo have me crazy focused and really pumped for work, blogging, yoga, drinking water, it WORKS.

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…
