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 2

Omg is it Friday yet??? My body is just dragging along, so I would like to say that I’m so grateful today for the person who invented coffee. Yes!!!! Coffee, now I’m not that big on coffee, I just started drinking it, but my gosh it does something to me. I woke up this morning moving slow like a turtle, then I poured a cup of coffee and BOOM!!! I was ready to conquer the day. lol so that’s what I’m thankful for today. Now, on yesterday I wrote down the 5 things I was grateful for so here we go:

  1. So thankful for my struggles
  2. Thankful for my meds
  3. Thankful for my therapist
  4. Thankful to be smiling again
  5. And last but least, thankful for music

These may seem kind of crazy to some of you, but for those of you who have been reading my blog know my struggle. I had to go through the bad stuff to come out of it on top. With the help of the right meds that regulate my brain, and the therapist who cares enough to actually listen. The first lady was just horrible, and a little judgemental. Aww, to be smiling again…it really feels good to see my smile in the mirror now. For a long time all I could see was this sad face with baggy blood-shot red eyes staring back at me. No hope in my eyes, all lost and gone. Lifeless eyes, feeling unworthy and ugly. No longer do I look that way, and lastly I’m so thankful for music. Music that keeps me dancing around the house and singing without even noticing it. I’m having a little karaoke party to myself, and my pup is the audience. lol!! This is why I love this quote, because I hoped for once to be happy again. Things are not perfect, but lord knows they are better than they use to be. I don’t desire much, just for me to learn how to count my blessings during the storm. This list may seem kind of crazy, but it was all I prayed for. On that note, hope you all were thinking of some things to be grateful in your day. No matter what it is, be grateful because someone is wishing for a lot more. Chat soon….

Every time I want to be happy and joyful, depression tries to cram its way in. Depression is like that old boyfriend who keeps texting and calling after you have repeatedly told him to “back the fuck up”!!! Still counting down to my birthday , but I need more time to accomplish more things! My brain is overwhelmed thinking about this turning 40 thing. Just need to relax and go with the flow! Well bloggers have a great day and remember to smile!! Chat soon!
