Pick Me Up Thursday!

kitty friday eveHappy Friday Eve y’all! I hope your week has been great and you are feeling the best you possibly can. I have almost made it through my first week at my new job and it really hasn’t been all that bad. I can say that it is much better than the miserable job I can from. This job is a whole new experience for me and I know I8-boss.jpg need to be patient. In my mind, I should be able to know everything after one day, but logically that just isn’t possible. I am glad to have a desk job now and do not have to worry about walking around a lot, which only causes me more pain.

With the holidays approaching us quickly and only one more day left before completing my first week, I could definitely use a little pick me up! The quote I am sharing with y’all today is powerful and I hope it helps lift you up!life-changes-quotes-change-is-painful-1543619239

Even though change can be difficult, without change we really are not growing. We actually need to allow ourselves to accept change and spread our wings and fly to spread-your-wings-and-fly-kathleen-sartorisamazing new things life has to offer us. There isn’t anyone that wants to stay in place that brings nothing but stress and negativity! I stepped out of my comfort zone when I quit my last job, when I didn’t even have another offer yet and things worked our for the better!

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today. I am looking forward to reading what you positive vibesthink about the quote I shared. I also want to thank each of you for all your encouragement as I made changes to my career path and as I try pursue my dreams of being a full-time writer, someday! I hope you have a wonderful day and your weekend will be full of happy times. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

new-monday-new-week-motivational-gym-quotesHappy Monday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and you are ready for a new fabulous week! I am starting my new job today, so I am a little nervous, okay I am a lot nervous! It is just jitters from not knowing anyone and learning something new and I am sure the jitters will end after a short time. Changes are always nerve-wracking, but it is also needed!

I found a wonderful quote to start your week off on the right foot and I hope you like it!weightloss-quotes-michael-jordan-1564154654.png
We all feel like we are running into a wall at times and it is SO important to find a way through it or go around it! Y’all know how awful my last job was and how incredibly look-on-the-bright-side.jpgnegative it was, so I made the change to something new that should be much better! We are at work more than we are at home and working in a hostile work environment is SO unhealthy and not worth it. It takes a lot of determination to quit a job when you do not already have an offer and stay on top of the search!

I hope your week starts off great and only gets even better! I just want to say, please do not ever let anyone bring you down, you deserve better than that! More than likely they are so unhappy in their life they just want everyone positive mondayto suffer with them so we just can’t let it happen that way! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote I shared. I promise to respond as soon as possible, which is going to be when I get out of work. I also promise to share with y’all how my first day at the new job went! Never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of                 love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

I also want to give a HUGE shout out to a fellow blogger, Holly for helping me so much while I try getting into freelance writing! Holly is an amazing person with a huge heart ❤!!! Holly has her own blog she maintains and I love reading her posts. If you have time, I think you would love her as well! https://returnofconflictgirl.wordpress.com/

Oh yeah, when you have time please check out the amazing books written by Emma!!

Very random thoughts!

life-is-like-a-roller-coaster-it-has-its-ups-and-downs-but-its-your-choice-to-scream-or-enjoy-the-ride-quote-1There are many times when life feels like a roller-coaster that has fallen off the tracks. It seems like one bad thing happens, just to be followed by another and it ends up turning into a vicious cycle of events. Often times you are just getting through one of lives difficult event when something else comes up. It is hard to catch your breath, but you are also forced to keep going.

We have all heard people say that life is short, but is it really? I have always believed that everything in our life happens for a reason and we may never know what those reasons are, but they are there. I think our story was written way before we were even born and we are just here to play the part.

It kind of seems like I have lived a year that was full of changes, some were good and 4others were not. I have no regrets about moving to a new area with my husband and two cats. It was a good choice and I do not miss the area we moved from. The move was a new chapter in our lives and it is not complete yet!

I have always known that you can’t run away from your problems because they will always follow you, no matter where you go. I am not saying there are any problems in my household, but I can’t go anywhere to hide from the pain caused from Multiple Sclerosis or the stress that seems to go everywhere I do. Stress is just something that has been a burden on my mind and haunted me for years.

maxresdefaultThere are many times I think about a place that has less pain and is stress-free. I find the beach to be a magical place where my pain seems to be less and stress is not welcomed and is blocked from the beach! I think the sound and smell of the ocean clears the mind and lightens to burdens to the soul. What do y’all think?

Y’all already know that I left my previous job a few weeks ago and do not start my new job until Monday. This did give me a break from work and allowed me to recuperate 06e6cb98-9eac-4eb5-a6c4-26efd7cde98c_logofrom that job because it really was a terrible place to be. The job was full of negativity and ended up being a very hostile environment. During my time off I was able to reunite more with something I am truly passionate about. I have made the decision to try getting into freelance writing. I know it is going to be a lot more difficult because I will be working full-time, but I will still put forth the effort. Of course it is going to take me longer to get everything setup, but it is a real possibility and I will make it happen!

Most everything about the job I start on Monday will be very new to me, but I catch onto images (9)things fast. I do not see it as be a difficult job, but hopefully it will be a great new adventure. There was a time I was very naïve and thought all people had good intentions, but as I have gotten older I know this isn’t always true.Don’t get me wrong, I know there are many wonderful people out there, but with some it isn’t easy to know if their intentions are good or if they plain evil hiding behind fake sincerity. I plan to go into this new job with my eyes wide open and no real expectations, good or bad. I guess if I do not have any expectations for the new job, I will not be disappointed!images (7)

So this is my last weekend before starting to work full-time again. I thought it would be best to get plenty of rest to prepare for next week, so I have not done much of anything! Either today or tomorrow I need to go to the grocery store to get a few things so I can make my lunch for the week. I think I am going to try to start eating healthier and think it will make me feel better all around. We are also getting our new kitchen appliances deliver on Saturday, so I can try cooking dinner more than we eat fast food. It has been over a year since we had a stove and surprisingly enough, I am SUPER excited about it!

smileI hope you are enjoying your weekend so far and you are feeling the best you can. I am still planning to keep my same schedule of posts and continue to try doing additional ones, but it might take me a little longer to respond to comments. We are approaching winter and it is already pretty chilly where I live. The craziest thing is, I actually grew up in the north where there are very cold and snowy winters. I guess living in the south for 20 years has made me forget what cold really is! Now when I say it is getting colder where I live, I think low 50’s is cold!  

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. This post was kind of all over the positive vibesplace, but I guess I just have a lot on my mind and writing about it helps! I do hope you leave a comment because I love reading what your thoughts are on everything. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

imagesHappy Friday y’all! How was your first week of December? I think I am still lost as to what happened to this year! I mean, come on time is on super charge! I swear I have been hearing Christmas songs for weeks now! What happened to waiting until after Thanksgiving to start anything with Christmas? I did spend the most of the week waiting patiently, okay let’s face it I wasn’t that patient for my background check to be clear from a state I haven’t lived in or even been to in 20 years! Thankfullywelcome friday, the background came back late Thursday afternoon and just like I told the recruiter, I have absolutely nothing on my background check, not even a speeding ticket! Good news is, I am starting the new job on Monday!!! I would have never thought I would be looking forward to going to work.

Today marks the day we made it through another week! Now we can cleanse our minds from any negative emotions and start again with nothing but positivity! Letting go of disappointments, sadness, negativity and frustrations will benefit us in many ways!

seek-respect-not-attention--it-lasts-longer--1I do believe we all have dreams of something we want to do, accomplish, go visit somewhere we want to see and anything else you can think of. Sometimes, we have to fight twice as hard against our thoughts that are trying to hold us back. Being held back could be due to our lack of confidence, which we can correct I find the quote I am sharing with y’all today very encouraging and I plan to never give up on the dreams that are close to my heart! 

Let me ask you one question, what is one of your most desired dreams? Do you have any plans on how to make your dream, become your reality? I guess it shows that I am a planner, which I sometimes go a little overboard. The truth is I might also be a bit of a control freak and planning is the positive-vibes.jpgonly thing I have control of. 

I hope you have a good day and your weekend will start off incredible. I am looking forward to reading your comments and learning what your most desired dream is. I am finally starting my new job on Monday, so I might be a little slow with reading and commenting on posts. I don’t think it is going to take me long to adjust, but I wanted to give you a heads up. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

I have a few books that I would like to share with you. I believe I already told you about these books before, but as Christmas is near wanted to share them with you again. The author of these amazing books is one of my fabulous blogger friends, so I know just how talented she is!! Thank you Emma for your brilliant books!

Pick Me Up Thursday!

you-say-thursday-i-say-friday-eve-have-a-tayzerific-10147394-e1554939166168Happy Friday Eve y’all! I hope your week went well and you are looking forward to the weekend! One of many things I am not great at is waiting! Y’all already know that I quit my previous job because it was well, awful and I accepted another position. So here is where the waiting comes into play. Of course most jobs do background checks, right? Well, one of the states I lived in about 20 years ago is taking forever to get them what they requested! It makes no sense at all, I was barely an adult when I lived there ee80ef69a87cbcf8f1b356cba24f0160-e1575508637204.jpgand sure as hell do not have anything negative in my background! In the event that state doesn’t get my new job the report requested, I may have to wait another week before I am able to start. Now another week off work is great, but it is also unpaid and who can afford that, especially around Christmas?

I hope once you read the quote I wanted to share with you  today, I hope you will find it a pick me up to get through one last day before the weekend starts!hurt-disappointment-sad-quotes-quotes-about-disappointment-and-how-to-handle-it-home-improvement-loans-for-veterans.jpg

It seems like there are some days that make us fight a little harder for sanity and happiness, but I guess we do what we have to do! I feel strongly that we are not given anything in life we can’t handle and ALL the struggles we face makes us that much stronger. I guess sometimes a little extra fight, determination, positivity and sheer will islife-fight how we make it in this crazy life! 

I am looking forward to reading your amazing thoughts on this quote because I know your thoughts are brilliant! In the event my start day is postponed another week it might actually be a good thing because it will give me an extra chance to dip my toes in download (5)something that I am wanting to try my hand in! Even if we do not know it, everything in life happens for a reason and it happens when it is meant to!

I hope y’all have a wonderful day and you are feeling as great as you can. I want y’all to know how much I appreciate each and everyone of you and value the friendship we have made. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of  love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

‘Tis the season to be jolly!

Holiday-shopping-safetyI still can’t believe it is already that time of year again! You know when stores are crazy busy and crowded with holiday shoppers and traffic is horrendous? Finding a parking space is almost as challenging as finding a needle in a haystack! It seems that many people lose their common sense with driving and getting around town is like a war zone!

Trying to find the “perfect” gift for someone becomes more a frustrating chore instead of a good enjoyable time! This time of year really should be more than what’s sparkle.jpgunderneath the Christmas tree and more about spending time with our loved ones. In an effort to lessen your stresses about shopping in the overly busy stores, I am going to share a few great ideas for gifts that can just be delivered to you at home!

  1. Ring-video doorbell with HD video and motion activation alert! How great would this be to not even have to get up to see who is at the door? This fabulous doorbell connects with Alexa allowing for you to not only see the person, but you can speak to them and hear them as well. Your home will be monitored in 1080p video with infrared night vision. I think it would be rather interesting to be able to check on the home anytime with live video on demand!
  2. Canary Indoor Security Camera 1080p HD, with a wide-angle lens. This camera is motion activated, has full color, night vision with image pan and zoom. You can see what is going on inside your home anytime and anywhere you are. Who needs a nanny cam if you have this great camera? The camera come in black, white and black graphite. Connects with Alexa, iOS, Android and Google. There is even one touch emergency services that will alert police, fire and EMT.
  3. Instant Pot Duo can work as a pressure cooker, slow-cooker, rice cooker, steam vegetables, saute foods, warm food and you can even make your own yogurt! This contains the ability  to monitor pressure, temperature, keeps time and adjusts heating intensity and duration. This just blows my mind because it cooks fast and saves you time. After a long day at work, this machine with little effort on your part will have dinner ready in no time!
  4. Super Deal Pro Digital Swing Away Heat Press, Heat Transfer SublimationMachine. Have you ever thought about using your creativity to make gifts for others and even great things for yourself? All you would need is letters, numbers and images to create t-shirts, garment bags, mouse pads, jigsaw puzzles, ceramic tiles, plates and really anything that is flat. A digital LCD time lets you set the desired time and an audible alarm will let you know when the item is complete. I think this machine could be so much fun and using our creativity would show off our talents!
  5. Lighted Makeup Mirror is great for those of us that need extra light to get ourselves ready. I have noticed sometimes it is rather challenging to see when I am applying my makeup in the mornings due to low light. This very affordable light offers LED natural white and is double sided. It even comes with a stand to make things even easier!

These are just a few ideas that someone you know may enjoy! I am still looking for more iideasdeas that could be affordable and a great gift! This is just my first post with gift ideas and there will be more to follow. Please let me know what you thought about these ideas because I would love to know your opinion! 

I appreciate you stopping by today and hope your week is going well. This is my last week until starting my new job on Monday. I am doing all I can to enjoy not working and not having a schedule, but at the same time do look forward to having a set schedule. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

6dd4fb5264d72b598fa2e12899fc773a-1.pngHappy Monday y’all, I hope you had a lovely weekend! Can you believe it is already December? I know I have said this before, but I do not know where this year went! With another holiday coming up shortly it can be super stressful. It seems like plans and finding the right gifts to give can be difficult, but I am going to try this year to change this pattern because it just isn’t worth it! Throughout the next few weeks, I am going to do a post a week about fun and easy gifts you can purchase that the recipient will love!

I have been doing the best I can to enjoy the days I have off before starting my new jobdownload next Monday and it has been great! I love having the time and energy to clean my house, write about things that are important to me, start writing poetry again and I still find it be a great release of emotions, researching how to get into freelance writing and even though I still do not sleep in, I can take naps if I want to! I think y’all already know how much I love to write, so if through my research on freelance writing I can actually get involved, it would really be such a dream come true for me! I do believe if we want our dreams to come true and work hard for them, we can achieve anything we set our mind to!

I found a lovely quote that I wanted to share with y’all today because I found it pretty powerful. I do hope you will enjoy this quote and it will have positive impact on your day and bring you a sense of comfort!mandy hale

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I always appreciate all of your support 877f65dcf9eeb694e27705a83304259dand really value your comments! I hope you have a wonderful day and your week is full of amazing things! Try your best to keep a good mindset and do not allow anything or anyone to dull your sunshine! I already told you that I will be sharing some good gift ideas in a few posts throughout the next few weeks. I think instead of getting extremely stressed, we should try to remember what holidays are really for and that is being with family! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!
