Why I am GRATEFUL today…
*disclaimer!* I promise I did all this waaaaaay earlier and wrote some GOOD stuff too but the computer issues…. Somehow, it didn’t save, I already published and lost everything. I’m too tired to do it again.
3.) It is Friday! Grateful like a mug for this. I got the weekend off, not a damn plan and ready for shenanigans!
2.) S/O to the Queen of TTWIF! 😬 TTWIF is That’s The Way I Feel, our podcast over living life with Multiple Sclerosis. Its me ( ya BOI), recruited Kerry, a King in Florida, convinced Jamilah (Queen that brought us all together), added a producer (Chris. S/O to Nigel!) and what started as a Zoom group blossomed into a podcast. THEN, the Queen bought EVERYBODY the real deal, authentic, referred sound equipment and mics. #MicDrop. Here. We. COME. Playa.
1.) I got that teaching remote position!! I’m impressed with my DAMN self y’all. Grateful I got the gig. Grateful I can be a teacher again. Grateful I might be able to hold BOTH jobs. Grateful I had the belief to be myself during that interview. Noooope. I ain’t ever let MY personality “shine” in an interview or opportunity. I’ve always done my absolute best to talk, walk, act, move, question and even laugh like a colonizer. 🤷🏾♂️ #BeingBlackInAmerica. On Thursday, I had tattoos on full display. I wore a T-shirt and blazer instead the full ‘Armor of GAWD business professional attire. I had my TWOOO CHAAAINS rocking. I created my own, independent lesson of the War of 1812 and dumped the basic bullshit I was instructed to use. 🤴🏾😉 I made SHO to connect the War of 1812 to slavery and the continued genocide of a race of people, Natives. Yoo. I did ME and got hired 24hrs later. (She said it’d be Monday but they signed my black ass immediately. 👏🏾🙏🏾)

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…
