Naw. I’m off today too but I feel absolutely, freaking TERRIBLE. Let’s see how some GOOD Gratitudes affect things.
3.) I can get pierced! – Maaaaaan, it’s time for me to snatch my swag back. There is no one here but my 1st Adult and she is into piercings, tattoos and cosmetology. I’m into that stuff as well (Not as much cosmetology because I’m bald but I do wanna be pretty sooo… 😉). I was supposed to try my first X-rays, MRIs and EKGs in four years but no. I like that new neurologist so much that I would see him again but I’m ain’t stepping into that war-with-insurance-over-medical-bills. I’m not spending time calling organizations/nonprofits that may pay either, being put on hold, long applications, faxing stuff, repeating the story over and over until said organization/nonprofit pays. Hell, they might NOT pay and all that is for nothing but you’re always left with another “possibility” so you do the whole thing. Again. All that time and energy, all that worrying, hoping, stressing, researching, wondering is too much. I’m grateful she offered to take me for piercings instead because it’s waaaaaay cooler, prettier and gives us something to bond over.
2.) There’s only tequila left – I’m actually hurt by this fact but I know I gotta straighten up. 🤦🏾♂️ I’m drinking between Gratitude Journal entries, not eating and it’s definitely affecting my body. I can’t drive; more importantly, I ain’t got money. Today, I’ll try staying sober. At this point, my stomach is a bigger issue than the aches, pain and neurosis. I’m USED to pain but pain AND cramping is too much. Since only the nastiest liquor is left, I’m thinking I’ll take it serious. 🤞🏾
1.) Meeting with CeCi – *whistles* Yoo. I’ve met with a few social media manager type of people, book folks, publicists, creators, whole nine. Every last one of them promises better engagement, more followers, big money, promotions. NONE of them ever give a way of doing it. Ceci dropped a PAGE of stuff and it wasn’t all cliches either. Nooooo, we chopped for an hour and a half, IG, FB, FB groups, books, MY ideas for the future, names, number of posts, I even have homework before our Friday check-in & separate Monday meeting! *mind blown* It wasn’t too much, it was professional, thought out, she had notes on me. Dawg, I felt like she was trying to impress me without overloading me and it worked. True to her word, she never mentioned a penny, commission, nothing. Just came in teaching, explaining, questions, LISTENING… Wow. I’m grateful somebody thinks this highly of me. I’m grateful her vision is built on MY goals. Grateful and excited AF to work, grow and learn from a professional so I make this lifestyle happen FASTER. 🤜🏾🤛🏾🙏🏾👑
