30 Days of Gratitude Day: 14

Gd early morning, I’m up and ready to start my day! Ok…I’m still laying in the bed, but you get the idea! Lol!! My mind is awoke, but my body is staying comfy under my blankets. I don’t have much work today, so that gives me a chance to be creative. This is my birthday week (birthday on Sunday), so I’m getting prepared for my trip to Texas. I’m so thankful this year that I have some extra funds to travel. The last time I was there was bitter since it was the court date for my son. So this time we are celebrating me and eating thanksgiving dinner really early, I wanted to make sure his last couple of months at home were good. It still breaks my heart that he has to go to jail, but I know that God will see him through. I just know there is something good coming out of this, oh well not going to dwell on that now. Anywho…so I’m ready to get up and get to shopping. So hope you all have the best Tuesday and stop and ask yourself, “what are you thankful for today”!? Chat soon…

30 Days of Gratitude Day: 9-13

Wow I’ve been a busy little bee 🐝 these past couple of days. I’m waking up on this Monday morning feeling so thankful and blessed. All I can do is cry, cry tears of joy! Life last year this time and before, was dark, blue, and cloudy. I had no where to turn, suicide was constantly on my mind, I just felt life gave up on me. I was in a bad place in my mind and soul. My body was hurting, could barely move out the bed. Constant anxiety attacks, hair falling out, and I didn’t care to eat. I hated myself, my life, and God. I couldn’t believe he was allowing this to happen to be me. But God…and only God can change things.🙌🏾 Today I’m thankful for those struggles and past hurts! I’m thankful for friends that continually support through my ups and downs. I can’t express to you all how incredibly thankful I am..hope this Monday finds you all well. Chat soon…

30 Days of Gratitude Day: 7

Wow 😊I had a great Tuesday, things have just been falling into place…finally the universe is giving me a break! Today I had the opportunity to speak about my books and the projects I have in the works (link coming)! I manage to bring a high paying client into my cleaning business, and all because I prayed without ceasing. I prayed during the times I didn’t understand, and during the times when I felt He forgot about me. Although all of my prayers haven’t been answered, I know now that miracles happen everyday. God knows I have a rough couple of years, and really needed Him to take me under His wings. I can’t thank Him enough for not leaving me hanging. I know now that my teacher is quiet during the test. So today I’m thankful for answered prayers, and for the people He is putting in my path. Constantly singing His praises 🙏🏽

Happy Monday and new time, man I love this new time change. As you know I’m in the bed before 6 anyway, so being dark early is right up my alley. lol Well today was a long but productive day, my Monday started off pretty good. I felt rested and got up with no problem at all. Today was the day I take dad to run his errands, and gives him a chance to ride in the car for a bit. Since he has a new girlfriend at his place, they seem to get out a little more together. She’s a nurse, so she is able to help him walk and be careful. Also today was the first day of my new coping skills class, and therapy day. I wasn’t really ready for therapy today, but glad I stayed the whole hour. Which brings me to why I’m thankful today, I’m more than thankful for my therapy sessions. I find so much relief in going, I had something bothering me yesterday and she just brought it out of me. I cried just a little, not sad tears, but tears of ‘yes that’s it’!! I feel like my thoughts are so clear when I’m with her, I mean I feel like she has been knowing me for years. I wonder if we are supposed to be kind of cool with each other? Today she told me something personal about her daughter and I felt like we were best buds. Just wondering if that’s ok? If it’s not, oh well! I couldn’t be more thankful for her. She sees the old fabulous, courageous, pretty, and diva I use to be. She sees me, not just my illness. I mean I feel like my old self, with a new brain when I’m there with her. So once again, who said therapy was bad for ya!? Hope this week is starting off great for you all, chat soon….

30 Days of Gratitude… Day 1

November is upon us, which means the holidays are right around the corner. With that being said, instead of waiting for Thanksgiving to be ‘thankful’, I have decided to figure out something to be ‘thankful’ for the rest of the month. I have decided that maybe seeing the good things in my life, might out weigh the bad. I have come so far these last months, and really feel ‘thankful’ God hasn’t given up on me. The more we focus on what’s right in our life, the better we will feel. I think if we are grateful for those good days, then the bad ones should receive a little love. I mean if it wasn’t for the bad days, I wouldn’t be able to overcome shit in life. My life wasn’t as bad as I thought, but the way I reacted to those things made it seem worse. I’m learning so much lately, and can’t say enough how glad I am that God was on my side. So what are you all ‘thankful’ for? despite the hard days, is there one thing in a day that you can say, “ok I’m thankful for that”. Hell I don’t care if it’s,” hey I showered today”….I know all to well what life is like when depression takes over your mind. So I will start off day one by: writing 5 things I’m ‘thankful’ for today and will share them with you all later in another post. I would love to hear from you all as well. Thanksgiving isn’t the only time to be ‘thankful’….chat soon.
