One Year Blog Anniversary!

Good morning FriendsGood morning y’all! I hope your week has started off wonderfully and you are feeling good on this Tuesday morning or at least as good as possible! My Monday went fairly well and I was actually able to work six and a half very LONG hours! I found this to be great success and I was pretty happy about it! If I am being completely transparent with y’all though it was not easy because I was in pain, but I did make it! When I finally was in the comfort of my home, I received a message from WordPress that read:


“Happy Anniversary with!

You registered on one year ago.anniversary-2x

Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.”


It is so hard to believe just one year ago I embarked upon my blogging adventure! I will admit that at first I knew absolutely nothing about blogs, how to blog or really anything about it at all and I was incredibly nervous about sharing my personal experiences with others. My thoughts and feelings have changed dramatically over this year with y’all and there has never been even one day that I regretted my decision to take this fabulous journey!

I have been so honored to be able to get to know so many fantastic and absolutely amazing people all around the world that really understand the struggles I deal with on a stranger-become-important-peopleday-to-day basis. It has been very humbling to have been nominated for numerous awards over this past year and receive many astonishing comments from fellow bloggers with praise for my positive outlooks and my perseverance with fighting this illness I live with. I feel that I have made some real true bonds and friendships with so many of you and I am far beyond thankful for each and every one of you! With your help I have gone from three followers to over 1,000 before my one year anniversary! My goals from when I first started my blog have not wavered as I am still very determined to spread as much positivity, compassion, encouragement and support as I possibly can!  Every word I share comes straight from the heart and will always be very real; I tend to not have the ability to sugar coat things because my thoughts are my reality.

So many of you have offered me some excellent advice and it has all been extremely appreciated! I value the connections I have made over this year and really look forward amazing-people-quotes-8to learning even more from y’all in the future! I sincerely hope that the posts I have shared thus far have been helpful and encouraging to you as well and I promise to continue sharing uplifting posts!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today and for always being so breathtakingly amazing! I hope you have a wonderful day and really do hope you are feeling as good as you possibly can! Of course your comments are always encouraged and I will respond to them as quickly as I can, unfortunately work has been busy so I can not respond until I get home from work, but I still will! As always, I am sending y’all LOTS of ❤love and comfort!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

      • I am not sure if my response came through before, but it would be great if I could get into freelance writing. I think it would be so beneficial to my health not working a normal 8-5 job. This could give me the chance to do what I am passionate about, I just do not really know how to do it! I really appreciate your encouragement Terri!

      • That is very true! I think I am following one person that does freelance work. She has actually shared some advice on her blog and I am trying so hard to learn from her. Maybe I should look a little harder for freelance writers so I can get some good solid advice! Thank you so much Terri!!

  2. Happy Blogivesary Alyssa!!! Congratulations!!!!! I saw in your discussion with Wendi that today had been rough at work, yet you are so forgiving that your letting it roll off your back so you can release the stress and rejuvinate. I am so appreciative of the good fortune that came my way when i discovered your blog Alyssa, and look forward to hearing from you through it. Take a nice bubble bath and really unwind.

    • Thank you so much Heidi! This year really has been so amazing and I have been so honored to meet so many people! I am thankful that I was able to meet you and get to know you better! I know it sounded like I had let things go, but by the time I was chatting with Wendi I had time to settle my emotions because I was very upset about the poor treatment I dealt with. Tomorrow when I go to work I plan to just avoid speaking to this person because that is the better way to deal with it and I won’t get all upset!
      I am really glad you discovered my blog and I am glad you enjoy what I discuss! I have loved getting to know you! I hope you have a nice relaxing evening and a nice Wednesday!!
