Whatever Log! (Random thoughts, questions, opinions. I don’t catch enough dreams for a dream log.)
Remember, the difference between being grateful and showing gratitude is the WHY story. As long as you are writing your story of why you’re grateful, you can’t overthink past decisions, wish for the “good, ol’ days”, wonder how much worse your health will or question if anyone else will leave.
3.) Washed my own clothes – This ain’t no little task! Severely disabled means I gotta angle my wheelchair so when I stand, hunched over from contractured legs, spasms hitting, I can grab the washing machine rim. (Those edges are sharp AF!) Then, one hands holds that sharp edge, balancing the whole body, while the other hand transfers clothes from washer to dryer. It’s an ugly, precarious, dangerous activity but I did it. 💥🤜🏾🤛🏾. The rush kept me awake and pushed me to shower on a Friday night. All clean, I lathered in Boudreaux’s Buttpaste to treat the pressure sores.
2.) Interview TODAY! – Aight. Let me start truly improving the podcast. Today is my 1st interview in…. iiiiinnn…. Wow. That long. Well, I’m ready and excited. This means SOMEBODY finds value in what I do. I’m keeping that affirmation for Inner G (pronounced “energy”).
1.) Didn’t fall, nothing hurt – Daaaaaaaawg. I damn near SUPER fell in the restroom. It could’ve been awful, broken bones but nope. I caught myself. Yikes. I’m still shook so I’ll be even slower for the next few days.
