Tag Archives: Gratitude

I haven’t written in a while. I haven’t wanted to because I haven’t been in the mood to say anything about dystonia. Today, I want to write, but I’m not going to mention dystonia. Well, not again.

Today I want to focus on gratitude. I stepped out of the riptide of my life and got a glimpse at it from the outside. I saw so many wonderful things for which I am grateful, but I’m focusing on a few specific ones today:

Watching two of my sons play soccer and football this morning.

Visiting with my family, including my parents, my Uncle Louis, Aunt Ruthy, a couple cousins, and my 83 year old Aunt Betty. I had my camera but forgot to take a group photo that I had planned to.

Seeing my oldest son, Chandler, becoming a responsible yet fun loving man.

Watching my daughter chilling out with my friends’ cat while we watched LSU football.

And finally:
Reconnecting with friends from the past. Even though decades have gone by, they still mean so much to me. I doubt they realize how special they are to me. Their joyful spirits inspire me. Maybe they will catch on when they read this. 😊

So, to all of you in my life, LOVE & THANKS.

Peace,
Mike

I know I haven’t been consistent with my updates. For those who know me consistency has never been a word used to describe me. It isn’t that I haven’t had time.
Some days (or weeks) I just don’t want to talk about anything that has to do with the disorder.
When I was in broadcasting I had no problem talking about myself. Hell, I Loved me!
I hadn’t planned to create a blog, especially one about my twisty, twitching, contorting, painful life with dystonia.
I found the nerve to do it after reading a very well done blog by
Dystonia Muse.
I owe her a big THANK YOU for unknowingly inspiring me to open up about dystonia and how I’m dealing (or not) with it.

Thank you and good night.
Mike
