I’m grateful I got this far om the challenge! There’s only 5 days left.
There are times when I just want to leave fb. I stay because of the great friends I have. But I also don’t like it when family finds me.
I just feel that if they can’t make the time to talk to me, or text me, why should they have the privilege of knowing anything that’s going on in my life, good or bad.
That to me sounds fake. We’ll just be great buddies on social media, but we’ll never chat in person. And when we do, I’ll pretend to listen when really I’m not. I won’t hang out with you in public either because you’re an embarrassment. Well, that’s the feeling I get. 
So many friends and family have been around my neck of the woods, and never have they ever turned around to ask me if I want to meet up with them or hang out. 
Well, maybe the Universe is doing me a favor. Maybe it’s sparing me from heartache down the line. I guess I’ll never know.
I am grateful for a higher power. 
The poem below is something I had written a year ago. I think it was a Blogophilia piece.
I turned it into a picture.

I’m grateful I have the ability to not say anything when I’m upset, and will probably regret saying it later.
I’m grateful I can walk away from the drama, and learn how to wait it out before saying anything. 
I’m also very tired right now, so this post may be convoluted. It’s a good thing I don’t have many friends! 🙂

I’m grateful I’m not mean and spiteful. I’m glad I don’t try to hurt people with my words. I’m grateful I don’t make people feel like crap for no reason. I’m grateful I’m discreet. I’m grateful I can rise above. 
At least I can hope. Some like to test me to a point, and then when I do explode, they say to me, “God! What did I do to you?”
You know. Same ol, same ol.

I’m getting this done early just in case I decide to take another trip into Sleepytown after I get out of work. 
I’m grateful for having some time to work out the kinks of this challenge. When posting a pic daily for 365 days, you can often get mixed up. Not to mention FB doesn’t always put your pics in that particular album either. 
Well in any case,  I’m grateful! 🙂

Saturday, June 24th, 2017.

I think I may have miscalculated my 365 day journey!
I have “10” days left of this challenge. Well, 10 days from the 24th. That will put me at July 4th, which doesn’t seem right. 
Anyway, I’m grateful I went to bed early . I got 9 hours of sleep. That was why I didn’t post a challenge last night. 
I’m grateful for sleep! 🙂

Day 355 of the 365 Day Gratitude Challenge. 
Friday, June 23rd, 2017.

Some days it’s so unclear to me what the Universe wants me to do!
I had plans today to go shopping and buy beads. Maybe go tp goodwill and find a dresser. Maybe stop by my rents, and give my dad a belated father’s day present (because last Sunday was all out hectic and very dramatic and traumatic.)
I had all these plans on my only day off that will now have to wait until my next day off which will be Monday afternoon perhaps, and nothing again until the weekend where I probably won’t have the money anymore to go shopping, resulting in additional charges on my credit card.
This, for some reason, is what the Universe wants for me. I don’t know why.
But I will say this much. The Universe has always had a strange way of protecting me. Like I’ll hear of an accident five minutes before reaching to a destination. Had I left sooner — my normal standard time — it probably would have been me involved in that accident. 
I guess in a way, you can say I’m grateful for the Universe!
