What I’m GRATEFUL for…
3.) ALMOST threw away my new charger – but I DIDN’T. Well, I did but I went and got it out the trashcan. I got one of those 5-Below phone chargers and those mugs are notorious for NOT working or NOT lasting. Here I am, wondering why the phone won’t charge and I figured it was the product. Nope, turns out, I was using two different electrical outlets that didn’t work. *straight face* Sho grateful I took the advice and tried a 3rd outlet.
2.) Failed my employment test but… But NOTHING. I failed it and I’m super frustrated at the training, my understanding, the supervisors, company and everything. Will I get fired? No idea but according to the rules, I will. Have I asked for help? Yuuuup. Multiple times and nothing. I was even promised to be get a test review by three different people but nobody did it. Wait, before I dive into the deep end, I got close. Before I get too detailed and upset my spirit or start OVER-thinking, I’m grateful to be in a mental space to accept whatever happens. I’m NOT going to lose all my growth by putting myself into a depression of self-doubt and initiate more MS symptoms. *deep breathe* If they fire me, I’m not gon cry and fall out with seizures, tremors and pain. I’m grateful to be able to say that kind of stuff to myself.
1.) Greatest call ever – IF yesterday was my last day, I had the greatest call ever and was questioned by two supervisors about why it took so long. TWO again. *shakes head* This QUEEN called in because she was robbed the day before freaking BRAIN surgery. The hospital released her without any ID and she had no way of accessing her healthcare benefits, transportation, nothing. She had been transferred, put on hold, disconnected and all the negative stuff. She was frustrated and in tears for help. She got the right one with me. I went through Social Security calls with her, called her PCP, used those calls to get her member number and was able to schedule her transportation to the PCP and the pharmacy. I made sure she wrote down the SS# and Member ID correctly. Yoo, she went from crying in frustration and pain to crying tears of joy with all the help I was able to get her. Maaaaaaan, I felt goood even after all the supervisor messages about my length of time with one member. Then, came the tests and failures. STILL, that call made my WHOLE day and let me feel great about my time there.

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…
