Yesterday was tough. But instead of me being Team In My Feelings, (I really was, I started crying while I was driving -cryving? when I was running errands, what tha heck???) I decided to focus on what I was grateful for instead.
I'm thankful that I am 43 and 24 year olds be asking about me. I get it now, Jennifer Lopez! I would never date him but it's still nice to know. #WhitePartyChronicles
#StillPullingEm <======That made me laugh
I am grateful for the ratchet song Flex Ooh Ooh Ooh by Rich Homie Quan. I.love.that.song. It speaks to my inner hoodrat e'em though I don't know half of what he's saying. I dance around and sing the parts that I know like I'm making a video. I'm also thankful that y'all are not judging me right now.
I am immensely appreciative of words. When I see or hear a word that I enjoy it gives me a burst of joy like that first bite of bacon on a bacon sandwich. Churlish, cerebral, fodder (-I used this the other day!), cantankerous, segue, impromptu, and plethora makes the nerd in me clap my hands with glee. I won't allow my students to use words like "sad, mad, good or smart" in class because I tell them that they know more words than that. Those are baby words and they are banned in my class so I have them come up with more fitting synonyms.
I almost didn't post these photos because my legs are not as toned as I would like them to be, but in the midst of operation gratitude I said to myself, "Self, you better post those photos. You pulling 24 year olds!" While in the midst of my sads yesterday, I was thankful that I still got my butt moving to the gym.
Shirt: Zara (On sale!)

We owe it to ourselves to take some time out of our day to admire the positivity in our lives. I am thankful to experience laugh out loud laughter daily, I am definitely bout that life.
Tell me, what are you grateful for? Can't think of anything? You better have something or I'mma tell Gawd on you and He will NOT be pleased......
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
