Pick-Me-Up Thursday!

uess-what-its-friday-eve-chankscats-happy-friday-eve-guys-17457852Good morning y’all! I hope you have had a nice week and you are feeling the best you can. I will be honest with y’all, my week started off absolutely terrible! I am trying to find the positive in the negative thing that occurred, but I am having a hard time with it. I am also trying to remind myself that everything happens for a reason and things can get better.

Thankfully this week is almost over and we will have the weekend to reboot and adjust our mindset, which is something that I really need right now. I think I am still in complete shock from how shaken my Monday made me, but I never let a stumblewill get through it in time. The most important thing I am trying to keep in mind is to NEVER let anyone dull the sparkle I have within me because NO ONE is worth that! I am just dealing with a massive bump in the road, but it isn’t going to stop me from living my life and being successful with my dreams!

Y’all know that I think we need a pick-me-up by Thursday because the weeks can be very draining! The quote I am sharing with you has a lot of meaning for me and I do hope you find it inspiring!doors slam

I definitely feel like one door did slam pretty hard in my face this week, but I will do my it's just a bad day...best to just dust myself off and move on. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this quote because y’all always have enlightening insight which I know will be extremely helpful for me. I do promise to respond to your comment as quickly as I can!

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. Your continued support and understanding is very appreciated! I hope you have a wonderful day and hope your upcoming weekend will be enjoyed to the fullest! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  1. I’m not sure what happened to you at work but I know some people are just mean. (A rattlesnake is a rattlesnake.) Things happen to us and sometimes it is because of human stupidity, there is no grand plan. It’s like getting a chronic illness. This was not some Devine decision this was a mistake in our body. We got ill because our human body is fallible and makes mistakes. There are mean people, ignorant people, and evil people. There are good people, caring and kind people. We run into them all. You are a good, kind and caring person! The very essence of being all those positive things means you are effected when negative things happen. Oh, no. I’m starting to ramble… I don’t know what happened on Friday. I encourage you to not give it a place to live in your life. You don’t need negativity! You are a delight. I pity anyone who doesn’t see that. Some humans are unpredictable. You, sweet Alyssa, are not. 💜

    • Thank you so much for you incredibly kind and compassionate words. I do agree with you there are mean and evil people out there, but there are also good people mixed in and sometimes it is hard to find them. You are one of those good and wonderful people and it is a honor to know you. I will give you a brief explanation of Friday and Monday. Friday I had my review at work, which wasn’t positive at all. I wasn’t trained in my job, but was expected to know everything. On Monday the powers that be basically said I wasn’t a good fit and we need to go our separate ways. I did nothing wrong and this wasn’t fair in the least. I was never written up, but praised for the great job I was doing and helping everyone get their work completed. I think I am still in shock and insulted, but at the same time everything happens for a reason and there is something better for me out there.

      • Oh. Darn it. I suspected it was something like that. You will find better, of course. Make darn sure you apply for unemployment. It’s only 60% of what you were making but it helps. Their loss. They dropped the ball. They didn’t train you. Their fault. I’d say someone is afraid of your honesty! You keep your head held high. You did nothing wrong.💜

      • My mind hasn’t been all that great yet because this was just a shock and wrong! I do think something is going on with this situation. The HR bi**h must have someone else she wants in that position and wasn’t honest enough to say that, but instead insulted me to my core. Thank you for saying it is their loss and I will try to keep that in mind. I still do not understand how they expected someone who wasn’t trained to know everything. None of this makes any sense and I really hate not having a job. I told my husband I will look for something else, but I might wait until next week or even the week after so I can heal from this. I even said I could take this time to start the book I want to write and of course finish my third or fourth (I have no idea how many I have made) I am crocheting! I can’t thank you enough for your encouraging words!

      • You need time. Let the anger go, the HR bitch obviously had other plans. Take your unemployment and start looking in a month or so… be picky! For now, crochet and book sounding great! I honestly KNOW it’s their loss!!! No question in my mind.💜✌️

      • Thank you so much! Honestly, in the beginning the HR bitch was great, so I have no idea what happened. I promise I did that job to the best of my ability without training! All I can say is screw them! I do need to let the anger go, but then I cry. Crocheting has helped keep my mind busy and I have wanted to do this book for SO long. Things will work out for the best, I just feel emotionally drained. I really appreciate what you have said and in my heart I know you are right!

  2. Oh Alyssa,. I didn’t know something horrible had happened to you. It did to me, too, and I was distracted. But I will, if I can see well enough, go back to your Monday’s post to see what happened to you. I am not much help because I am still getting up myself and dusting myself down. So maybe we can just hold hands together as we get up on our feet again, to stop ourselves falling down. Does anyone else want to join us? There’s safety in numbers they say. Much much love to you Alyssa xx

    • Oh goodness Lorraine, I am so sorry something horrible happened to you as well. Life has a cray way of bringing us down just to at some point lift us up again. I am not sure what happened in your life, but you do not deserve anything bad at all as you are an amazing person with more strength than so many others. I am here for you and we can get through these horrible things together and we will come out on top! Lots of love and support for you!

  4. Happy Friday Eve to you, Alyssa. You are always so positive and truly carry that with you all throughout your week. We all hit bumps along the way, but the most important thing we can do is get right back up and stomp that bump until it’s flat.
    I hope your weekend is full of peace and relaxation!
    Take care, Sweetie! 😊

  5. so sorry you are experiencing a bump in the road………just remember, that bump must have been small enough for you to “climb” over as you made it to the other side………you kept going and are able to write about it, so in a way, you have already begun your rebound! great job Alyssa!

    • Thank you so much for your comment! I am not trying to be negative because that isn’t in my nature, but it hasn’t been a good week at all. I know everything happens for a reason and things will look up soon. You are right, I did worry about having the ability to be motivating, but I want to keep who I am after my horrible week. I do always appreciate what you have to say and I hope you have a lovely day!

  6. Sorry, playing catch up as my furkiddo was sick and passed rather suddenly. I’ve been in a fog of heartbreak. First, I’m hoping your pain levels have eased as much as possible (my diet and walking play a big role in my pain but I’m not diagnosed with MS), second I’m hoping your cough has cleared up and third…I know this isn’t helpful but everything, job related anyway, seems to happen for a reason. Hopefully there will be a better fit for you somewhere else. Corporations make decisions for a variety of reasons and people get let go frequently because of numbers. And you had mentioned that HR was super nice… I hate to say it but super nice can often be super fake. Hopefully this downtime will give your body time to heal and you’ll be feeling your best when you resume your job search. I know it’s a horrible feeling but in reflection I’m hoping you find it was all for the best. 💕

    • Oh no worries, I am also trying to play catch up. Working full-time caused me too much fatigue and therefore I missed out on a lot with my blogging family. Unfortunately, the pain still lingers and might be worse now due to stress. Thankfully the cough has improved drastically. I know you are very right that everything happens for a reason and there is bigger and better out there for me. The HR lady WAS nice, but that was super FAKE! She is the one that played a HUGE part in me losing my job. It doesn’t make sense because even though I wasn’t trained at all, I did the best I could. I was never disciplined or written up, so terminating my employment still doesn’t add up. I am really not good at being unemployed, but something good will happen someday. I told my husband I am going to be looking for a job, but also starting on the book I really want to write.
      I am sorry you have been going through so much. Loss is hard and heartbreaking, but there will come a day things get a little more tolerable. My thoughts are with you and if you need to vent, I am here for you!

  7. Oh Alyssa. I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had a bad week. I must have missed something. I guess that means a fresh start though. I love the “Never let anyone dull your sparkle quote.” That is so true that quote although it can be very difficult to pick yourself up again.

  8. Hard weeks are rough! It really is a shame about your job, Alyssa. You did not deserve that. I hope you can relax this weekend and turn more of your focus to the many blessings in your life. If you are like me, it takes a while to stop dwelling on negative things that happen to me. The quotes you chose are good ones. I’ll keep you in my prayers. Hugs!

    • Thank you Camie! I think we are a lot alike because I sometimes have a hard time not dwelling on the negative things life may have, but I will ge through this horrible event. You are also right saying I didn’t deserve this because I did the best I could with absolutely no training. Things will get better and there is something even better out there waiting for me!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      • No problem Alyssa – I am not usually this late with blogging but tonight is such a night – I know we are having freezing fog and freezing drizzle overnight, so I won’t be going out until very late in the day, if at all … can catch some ZZZZZs in the morning.

      • Thanks Alyssa – I decided to not set the alarm clock as it sounded like no walk til this afternoon … I used to get up and work around the house, then go out later to walk if the morning was not good for walking … I was kind of sorry I didn’t set the alarm … the day seemed to speed by too fast. ZZZs are good to have. I have been known to nod off at my computer … nothing like the keyboard pressed into your forehead. 🙂

      • Even when I was younger, I could never read in bed … I would nod off in a minute, no matter how good the book was. It’s been a while since I even read a book, it seems I am on the computer hours and hours and I get AARP magazine and am about 3-4 years behind in it. Guess maybe when I am retired I’ll catch up?

      • I agree Alyssa … and it is a comfortable position too. My mom and I used to subscribe to a lot of magazines but found they were repeating themselves and copying from one another (or so it seemed), now just have the AARP magazine/bulletin. I am way behind on everything – I used to be organized when I was younger – that would not be a description of me now. 🙂

      • I used to be more focused on getting things done and keeping organized Alyssa, and after I started blogging, that has taken up more time, so I decided I would loosen up a little on my regimen … problem is, I’ve loosened up a little too much. My mom was really a great housekeeper – no dust, nothing out of place, never a dish in the sink. Somehow, her housekeeping genes, just like her baking and cooking genes, seem to have skipped a generation. 🙂

      • Organization can be so difficult and seriously, don’t pressure yourself. Do what you can, when you can! I find blogging very therapeutic and that is important! At least there is someone to do the clean up, so that isn’t something you really have to focus on! I have found that sometimes cleaning takes my mind off of all the craziness in my life, but at the same time it’s hard to do when I am in pain.

      • Yes, I will be honest that I have had friends who have had serious health issues and told me to shut my eyes to keeping the house and yard spiffy looking and enjoy myself more. My mom was a stickler for keeping everything clean and neat as I said so I did not let her down while she was alive … she would probably say “I knew Linda would be like this once I was gone” but you are right … there are only so many hours in the day and we have to enjoy what free time we have and blogging is a wonderful way to interact with others.
