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…

I’m rocking with this because I need a guided meditation. I’m loving what I’m doing. I’m loving how I’m doing. Nothing is going wrong. I need a guided mediation to KEEP this direction, flow, vibe, rhythm, love. That’s it. Period. *winks* Let’s go.
3.) Learned I can eat berries & citrus fruit and it’s my CANDY homie. 😐 Real talk SON. This no liquor, no sugar, no gluten is supposed to eliminate the Candida Overgrowth in my body. (The Candida Overgrowth is one of the root causes of Multiple Sclerosis. It’s a common fungus in foods but SOME people can’t handle it which makes perfect sense.) Towards the end of the week, I learned I can eat citrus fruit and it blew my mind. I’m CRAVING something snack-y as I push through the day of remote training, phone calls and various meetings. BOOM. Here comes those little navel oranges and the best, biggest Texas grapefruits that Kroger can offer! Right on time and perfect for what I need to chill those demonic urges towards white gold (Sugar y’all. 😑 I’m talking about sugar is white gold.) I’m on webcams answering questions, “WOW. What is that you’re eating? It looks GOOD.” 😛 Smoothie bowls with granola and unsweetened coconut flakes. I’m living my best life WITHOUT liquor, sugar or gluten.
2.) Teamwork making the dream WORK. 🎙🎤 The Queen bought dem kids, oops. Queen INVESTED in growing my blog by giving each kid a personalized Gratitude Journal. I’m grateful because it exemplifies her effort and believe to walk this journey of healing together. She sees the power, transformation & growth of my spirit and heart using Gratitude Journals, focusing my energy on improving and tracking my results. Why not give that opportunity for self-awareness to the children? Then, BLOG about it. 🤜🏾🤛🏾 Yoo. You know I am.
1.) Dropped my phone but it didn’t break! 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 When I was first diagnosed, I dropped and broke (not cracked, BROKE) 6 phones over the initial 18mo. Every other month, something wack happened as I adjusted on the fly to falling, tripping, stumbling, dropping stuff. It got so bad, my wife said she wasn’t bu1ying anymore. I could use a tracphone or pre-paid. 😑 Fast forward 4 years, I still drop phones, cups, bowls, etc. BUT stuff doesn’t break NEAR as much. My phone this morning. I super dropped it, flat on the face, heart STOPPED. I was scared to even pick it up! Guess what? NO problems, cracks, lines, the protective cover didn’t break, S-pen stayed in instead of skedaddling into the dark cosmos under a couch, NOTHING. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
