Yoo!

Welcome to All Things One Love, a blog chronicling my excursion & awakening into diet, positive thinking, yoga and a prescription drug free life despite Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  Throughout this blog, you will find my writings, reviews, foods, YouTube channel videos and everything I use to manage its chronic pain and aggressively degenerative symptoms. Content is organized into 5 categories for reader convenience. The ebook, Da G.O.A.T. (Gangsta of All Teachers) and its vlog are separated and updated regularly. The ebook, If you can’t GET better, BE better is available here as well. I hope that my journey leaves an impression and holds your interest!

Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in October 2016, Spondylosis in November 2016 and terminated from employment December 2016, it was imperative that I exercise control over something in my life. I found myself getting lost in self improvement books to stave dark thoughts and lonely nights. When I found THE light, it shone in radical, dietary changes and a seedling, rugged, uncompromising belief that my perspective directly affects outcomes. I attacked unemployment with newfound strength and juggled careers in education, real estate, insurance, tutoring, credit repair, substitute teaching, even Uber and Door Dash. My blog and writings are a personal testimony of treating autoimmune disease through diet and lifestyle transformation. It is here that I will continue to share my journey of enlightenment and positivism.

The writings are organized into 5 categories:

*Kendrick Avant, MS Outlaw – This is my original blog over diet, yoga, entrepreneurship and the tools I use to manage multiple sclerosis. (Categories box at the bottom divides the posts into 4 subcategories: body, heart, mind, soul)

*Reviews and Recommendations – Everything from Netflix and vacations to restaurants and recipes, this is what I really think. (Categories box at the bottom divides the posts into 4 subcategories: reading, watching, eating and a budding meal prep.)

*Levar Chase, Writer – My wife strongly encourages me to focus on my mindset and just write. Poems about Multiple Sclerosis, race, and erotic wordplay can be found with a common theme, raw and honest energy.

*Daddy’s Academy Gratitude – So, covid-19 outside. All THREE kids home for online homeschooling (one in Cosmotology School). Wife is a RN. Whatever life, I was built for this and offer our journey as series of short stories and updates!

*SuckaFree – These posts are based on playing Madden 20 on PS4, NFL videogame. I am part of an online franchise with 15 others users (most of us are Dads). I don’t get to play other users much because my spasms, numbness, incontinence complicate gameplay. There is real therapy in writing about the franchise like I’m a NFL reporter!

#BlackHistoryIsAmericanHistory – these are a collection of stories that are NOT taught in American schools. Racism, colorism, prejudice are woven into the very fabric of our culture and society. As a teacher, I used these stories to educate my students on the realities of this existence. I wanted them aware and prepared for the evil and injustice laying before their eyes. With category will exemplify those lessons as I share the work of myself and others for all to read.

My first short story, The G.O.A.T. (Gangsta of All Teachers), is the story of an inner city teacher retiring early with advanced Multiple Sclerosis and the rationale for his unorthodox teaching methods.

I’ve published a self-help ebook, If you can’t GET better, BE better. This ebook details the steps I’ve taken to rebuild my life by focusing on Gratitude, Attitude and Passion.

An introduction vlog is at the bottom. A thousand thank you’s for visiting, sharing and/or signing up!

  1. I have had MS 50 years now and avoided almost all external voices. My internal chatter is loud enough to drown others out (no disrespect, everyone gets their own). I’ve only got answers for me.
    My only advice is in attitude readjustment. Your choices govern outcomes and a positive one makes almost anything work. So pick your poison carefully and invest yourself without reservation.
    When I was dx in 1970, my neuron said there is no tx or proven path, so go live your life (without fear, regret, self-abnegation, other’s professing knowledge of the unknowable)
    My hubris drove my wife crazy as she had as strong a nondenominational personal ethos developed through her own trials. I resisted her rock solid stance. (You can imagine what our 32 year marriage looked like – loving disaster. I don’t believe in soul mates and you ain’t her anyway.
    Sorry, love to talk on, my wife used to call it verbal diarrhea. You’d have liked her.

    1. Yoo! I appreciate your advice Brother of the MS’other. It is received. I’m digging the ‘verbal diarrhea’ bc my wife calls mine storytelling. She swears everything I say and do are a full production. I’m homebound and wheelchair’ed up so I’m always ready for a chit chat or few messages. Good luck on your journey towards wellness! Let’s NOT be strangers! 🖤💪🏾🙏🏾
