Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Pick me Up Thursday 2Good morning y’all! I hope you are having a very lovely week! This week has been exciting and a little nerve-wrecking for me considering my last day at my current job is tomorrow! Starting a new journey in life is something we all go through during our lives, but even though it is thrilling, it also causes a lot of anxiety!

Y’all know I do always think that no matter how well our week has gone, we all need a little pick-me-up to get through just one more day! I really hope you enjoy this quote I am sharing with you this morning!be brave

I know it is probably obvious why I find so much meaning to this quote! Preparing to relocate to a new city and start a new job is all about taking risks! We never know what the outcome will be, but we must hold onto our beliefs in fate! I am really looking forward to reading your thoughts on this quote and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can! I hope you have a great day and I appreciate you visiting my site this morning! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Time For A Change!

no accidents all is meant to beChange is a wild mixture that can be both exhilarating and nerve-wrecking all at the same time! Change gives us the ability for amazing new opportunities, but sometimes it seems very risky or maybe that is just how my brain works. I know the best way to handle change or changes is to take things one step at a time and not over do it by trying to do all that needs to be done at once. I am a FIRM believer that everything happens for a reason and when it was meant to! Sometimes I also think there isn’t such a thing as something happening or meeting someone by accident!

With moving to a new city in a different state and starting a new job, there seems to be aChange lot to juggle right now in life. The funny thing is, before I went into my interview I saw a beautiful butterfly flying around my car! Of course I thought the butterfly was a sign that I was meant to get the job I really wanted and I DID!!

Now, packing can be a fun at times because you can actually throw away or donate things that you don’t use anymore, this gets rid of unnecessary clutter. I think it is best to donate items not in use instead of throwing them away because those items might be very useful to someone else. You have probably heard that saying, “One man’s junk is another’s treasure.”? Even with that said, it can still take a lot of energy that I seem to be losing change-quotes-5rapidly. I tend to feel overwhelmed because I have the need to do everything myself and hate asking for any help, but I am learning slowly to ask for help more!

I am sure y’all understand how stressful moving and starting a new job can be! In your lifetime, when you have moved, how did you manage to handle it without having a nervous-breakdown? I have always been a bit of a walking/talking stress case, but I am trying to handle it better. Of course I do not want to get myself too stressed out and cause myself to have a relapse! Any tips you might have I would love to hear! I always appreciate all of your great advice and to read how you handle similar situations! 

70502da7ecfb161bf5ee8a42face4478-1050x1050My last day at my current job is this Friday!! I am nervous and excited about this. I have been with my company for over three years and even though I am more than ready for a change, it is the change that is a little scary! I will be starting my adventure with my new job on September 28th and I am very excited about this position! I think my new job is the perfect fit for my personality and the hours are far beyond fabulous!

With moving and packing, I might not be making posts as I typically would. Please forgive me if I fail to respond in a timely manner, but I will still try! I hope y’all are having a great week and feeling the best you can! Please remember that no matter what I am going through in life, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Motivational Monday!

Monday to shineGood morning y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend! As y’all already know, where I live dealt with Hurricane Florence’s aftermath. Thankfully, my husband and I do not live too close to the coast, so we just had LOTS of rain and strong winds. Things definitely could have been much worse than they were for those living inland. 

Considering my weekend was spent safely in my house worrying about the insane weather, I definitely need a little motivation to start my week off on a positive note. I think starting the week off with positivity makes for a far better week. I hope you enjoy this quote and I am really looking forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can! difficulties

I hope you have a fantastic day and a lovely week! I actually have several reasons why this is going to be a GREAT week! Friday is my last day at my current job before my husband and I move away from the city we started our journey together! I will be starting a new job on September 28th and I think it is going to be a fabulous job and really perfect for me! Moving and starting a new job is both exciting and nerve-wrecking, but everything happens for a reason and change can be a wonderful thing! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

Hurricane Weather!

florenceGood morning y’all! I hope your weekend has started off pleasant! I am sure you have probably already heard about Florence pounding the southeast coast of the United States! This storm has already been extremely tragic for those living on the coast of North & South Carolina, but Florence hasn’t come to an end yet! 

With strong hurricane winds and heavy rain moving inland, thousands are already without power! Thankfully, as of right now my husband and I do still have power, but we are not out of the woods yet. The powerful winds and downpours of rain is still being tracked! We are still anticipating this storm to continue its destruction through Monday!

Sadly, this storm has already claimed the lives of 7 people and could still kill many others during it’s path. Florence has also left millions in the _103419002_mediaitem103418994dark and in fear of what could happen next.  This hurricane was and is still so incredibly powerful and dangerous!

With the heavy rain that is in our near future, flooding is a strong possibility and road conditions could become impassable. I think for safety reasons, it’s best to stay home where it is safe! There is nothing that needs to be done outside the home, that can’t wait until conditions improve!

With all the rain we are experiencing, my pain levels have literally gone through the roof! It seems as though NOTHING is easing my pain, but this could be worse. My thoughts are with those that did not heed the warnings of mandatory evacuations and for those that have lost so much because of this hurricane.  

I hope y’all are doing well today and if you are near the southeast coast of the United States, you have moved to where you will be the safest! Flood waters will continue to rise, so please stay safe! Thank y’all for visiting my site today and I do appreciate your comments. I do promise to respond as quickly as I possibly can. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤and comfort!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday!

good-afternoon-butterfly-graphic-for-facebook-shareGood afternoon y’all! I hope you have had an amazing week and you are in a safe location with this massive hurricane heading towards the South East Coast of the United States. If you are in the path of this hurricane, please heed the warnings and get to where you are safe! 

With that said, I feel like we could all use a little pick-me-up to get through the last day of the week! I hope you are looking forward to the upcoming weekend and I hope you enjoy the quote I am going to share with you today!cats-relaxing

Y’all probably know that I love animals! So I simply feel in love with this quote! My husband and I have two of the sweetest and adorable cats that bring nothing but happiness and joy to our life! I could be having a terrible day and their little personalities will bring me out of that bad mood. It amazes me how different their little personalities can be and then how well they get along and love each other. I just wish that humans had the same love in their hearts as most animals show! BeeSafe-556x400

Thank you for stopping by my site today and I am looking forward to reading your comments to the quote I have shared. I thought it would be good to add a little humor to your day! I hope you had day a great day and I hope you have a lovely evening! Please remember to stay safe if you are in the path of this nasty hurricane! I would hate if anything happened to any of you! My husband and I have taken some precautions in case we lose power. We even have plans to make sure our precious cats are safe as it would be tragic if anything happened to them and it could have been avoided. As always I am sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Never stop believing in hope!

hope-quotes-wallpaperI think in the world today, it can be very easy to give up hope. There does seem to be so much negativity and hatred surfacing daily, but not allowing these thoughts into our lives is possible! As long as we keep only those around us who offer happiness and nothing but optimism, we all could spread those emotions instead of negativity. If enough believe in love❤ and hope, we could out power the hate.

It could be easy for me or anyone else that lives with a chronic illness to want to give up any hope for a cure. Living with any illness that causes daily pain is without a doubt frustrating, hope-quotes-about-life-09especially when it seems to be never-ending. Being required to take numerous medications several times a day to slow any progression down, is not any fun! Making decisions of what the right medications are is like playing a game of Russian Roulette, you never know what the outcome is going to be. All of this takes determination to beat the odds and hopefully win the game of life!

Making decisions on what the right medications will be for yourself is extremely difficult. This takes having a lot of confidence in your choices. It also takes doing a lot of research on the medications to choose from. Since being diagnosed with Multiple hope seeing brightSclerosis 18 years ago, I have been on numerous different types of medications that are meant to slow the progression down. The first several were not right for me and I was able to move onto something different. The great thing is, none of the medications need to be permanent if they do not work well with your body chemistry, you are able to keep moving on with something else. This process was frustrating for me, but I never gave up hope that something would work well for me. Thankfully, I had a very understanding and tolerant doctor during this time which helped me make the best decisions!

I want to share a blog post from a fabulous fellow blogger❤ with y’all. Jenny at https://trippingthroughtreacle.com has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for many years and still keeps up her fight! I always find everything Jenny shares to be beyond amazing and she continues to give me hope for better times. I want to share with you her recent post because it was so brilliant and very informative https://trippingthroughtreacle.com/2018/09/07/multiple-sclerosis-and-its-symptoms/#comment-1981. This post alone will make you want to read even more of 2-19-life-1024x792Jenny’s posts!

As difficult as life gets, we all have the choice to hold onto HOPE! If we continue believing, HOPE will never die! We have a choice to challenge the potential for continuing to better ourselves and even all around us. 

Thank y’all for visiting my site this morning. I always appreciate your support and love to read your comments! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and you are feeling well! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!
