Gratitude Journal Day #154:
Friday, 3/5/21

Friday. *deep breathe* Let's start there. I'm keeping it simple and honest. Nothing fly, cute, deep, anything. Just honesty. On these days, I repeat to myself that others are learning from my blog & podcast. I tell myself I'm helping others everyday by living and sharing. When I work my gig, I'm helping others.

Wood Hoo! Friday!

3.) Audible – I always thought it was cool but I never even considered jamming an actual book BOOK. What I mean is listening to my favorite genres, Urban Fiction/Modern Fantasy, didn’t sound appeasing. I told myself, ‘I ain’t no kid.’ I prefer to read them myself, gather the images and action in my mind, turn those pages. After a month, I’ve turned that around. I’m really getting into listening to the stories and getting stuff done, shaving, yoga, chilling. It saves an incredible amount of time (I know, OBVIOUSLY. πŸ™„) and I’m entertained to the maximum. Yup, I see the images, events, situations, all in living color. I’m sure that the influence of the narrator sparkles here and that is a big reason why everything comes together so effectively. Either way, I’m giving a S/O to Audible.

2.) Another King saved my day – I’m struggling with balancing the stress in my life, bills, work, applications, incoming, outgoing, meetings, and I’m nowhere near the wellness routines that keep me from collapsing but I’m faltering. I put out an emergency flare for help and a King responded. The man took time out of HIS day to address my needs. *thumps chest* A thousand, million thank you’s King.

1.) Legs ache SO much and I’m taking it mean my new yoga poses are working 🀞🏾🀞🏾🀞🏾 – I only added 4 poses so far. 4 poses and a very, extremely conscious effort to keep my legs straight throughout the day. The PCP mentioned how contracted my legs were and I need PT. Y’all know I scoffed. Two days of this increased activity has wrecked my sleep, jacked-up my exhaustion, and HURTS. I like to think I’m used to pain at this point but this dull ache is different. It’s low grade but NEVER stops. I’m grateful for that fact but I’m most grateful that my imagination hasn’t run away with some half-assed fear of getting worse. Instead, I’m telling myself, reminding myself, teaching myself that I’m okay. I have a plan and I’ll see it through, regardless of changes, I’m going to finish this damn race, with or without my legs’ participation in a better mindset.

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…
