Let It Go Friday!

let go 19Happy Friday y’all! I hope you had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend! We finally made it to the end of the week and we can now enjoy two days of freedom from the workplace. There will be no alarms waking us up and disturbing our dream land. There are so many times the alarm goes off at the wrong time we are awaken to reality, which isn’t always the greatest. The two days we have for a weekend go by so fast, so I hope you are able to enjoy them! 

While Friday is the end of the week, it can also be used to let go of anything that happened during the week that may have left us disappointed and upset. If you are anything like me, which for own benefit I 123e0bc7a8bb6a397c58502fd8f92fb6hope you aren’t because I tend to worry about everything and anything. The bad thing is I am logical enough to know that there is no amount of stress or worry that will charge the outcome of any situation, but yet I still can’t seem to stop the vicious cycle of worry and stress. Even though the quote I am sharing today does not have anything to do with letting go, it is a nice remind that worrying only prevents our own peace! I know it is easier said than done, but it is worth trying to not allow our worries to destroy our happiness and peace of mind! We only live once and should do all we can to enjoy the life we were given.

One way I have found helps me take a step back, breath, and move forward is music. I believe music can have a powerful impact on our lives if we try to listen not only to the musicwords, but the musical instruments as well. You might enjoy the sound of the beating drums or the strum of a guitar or the beauty of a piano, or just turning up the radio might help relieve the stress you are feeling. I know when I get home from work, I listen to random songs that ease my mind from the stresses  the day brought on me. I will listen to the music I treasure while writing a blog post or to completely zoning out not having to listen to any other difficulties.  The magical combination of music and writing serve as the best form of therapy, or at least it does for me. At the end of the day, what do you do to unwind from a long day? There is no right or wrong answer, what works for one person might not help another in the same way. I am planning to get caught up on posts from my blogger friends this week and I will definitely have the music playing in my ear to do this!hqdefault (1)

I am looking forward to reading your comments on the quote I shared and your answers to the question I asked, no pressure though! Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and it is followed by a joyful weekend doing what brings you the most happiness! Please never forget images (1)that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes! I do want to ask one more thing from y’all, please keep those in Australia in your thoughts and prayers and send them as many positive vibes and love ❤ as you possibly can, they can definitely use your kind thoughts! It breaks my heart to know what they are going through and seeing the innocent animals on the news is crushing.

Pick Me Up Thursday!

images (9)Happy Friday Eve y’all! Can you believe we have almost made it through another week of 2020? How was your week? I do hope it was a good one and of course, you are looking forward to a calm and uneventful weekend! After the week I have had an uneventful would seem like a gift!

Monday and Tuesday I had to stay home because of pain and dizzy spells, it was awful! I will say that yesterday I did feel a little better, but I definitely wasn’t 100%. The funny thing is, the one person that showed compassion is the one person that supports that man in office. She might be the last person I would have expected to not only support such a person, but to care about my well-being. Isn’t it amazing how wrong you can be when you form an opinion based on certain things?

As always, I have a quote I am hoping will serve as a Pick Me16_5 Up Thursday! Thankfully, we only have one day left until the much deserved weekend will be here! I do look forward to reading your comments because I know you will bring additional insight to an already fantastic quote! Sometimes we might go through something awful and finding happiness is very difficult, but it is important we remember what brings us happiness because it is there somewhere! We might just have to dig a little deeper and hold onto our strengths and faith in goodness!

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. I do always your continued and valued support. I think it give us all encouragement to know that someone cares and is willing to stand by us. Even though I am extremely far behind on reading your amazing posts and being able to comment, please know I have not forgotten you and never will. I am sorry images (1)that I am this far behind, but between my husband’s birthday and feel awful at the beginning of the week I am behind too far, but I will make this all right again!

I hope you have a lovely day and you are feeling well. It isn’t always easy to not get stressed, especially towards the end of the week, but causing ourselves stress will not change anything. ❤ I also want to ask for your continued well wishes for those in Australia because they are going through things we could never understand.  Please know that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, compassion, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

5afdae460fa899918ce4403eaf11d0ffHappy Monday y’all! I hope you had a lovely weekend and you are feeling the best you possibly can. Are you ready to start this week off with strong optimism and pure determination to make the week ahead of us successful beyond measure? It is crazy to think that it is technically winter in the United States, but it feels like springtime with warmth and images (4)many rainy days. I really wish I could send all the rain we are expecting over this next week to Australia where they need it! I mean we have had so much rain lately  our front yard looks like a some kind of swimming pool. 

I think we should try the best we can to go into this week with goals that we will meet and an endless amount of passion for life! The quote I wanted to share with y’all this Monday will hopefully offer y’all some additional motivation for a beautiful week ahead of us! 9b9b0687163d106ecba6cac948c3fa5d

I do believe the sooner we realize that there is a limited amount of control we have over make it part of the danceany events in our life, but we can control the way we respond! I am very excited to read your thoughts on this quote and I do know your thoughts will be as brilliant and beautiful as you already are.

Thank you so much for visiting my site at the start of this new week. I hope your week starts well and only gets better as each day passes. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS love  ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Worlds of Pain

HEARTThere are so many awful things going on around the world and it is very heartbreaking. I don’t even know where to start because it isn’t just in the United States; the tragedies are spread throughout the entire world and seem endless. One thing that isn’t new and has been building for at least 3 years is the spread of hatred in the United States and really the entiredont-blindly-follow-any-leader-quote-1 world. I don’t even know why I am surprised anymore because too many people are willing to just follow blindly instead of being fully aware of the damage their hate is causing others. I understand we are only a few weeks into 2020, but you would think by now we would be more progressive rather than have digressed drastically. Unfortunately, I think those that are naïve enough to reality just continue to live like they are better than everyone else, when the truth is we are all humans with a beating heart and emotions.

people-helped-save-animals-fire-australia-fb23-png__700Considering I do have a strong love for animals and humankind, it hurts me to my core with what is going on in Australia. I can’t for one moment understand why some people in this beautiful country would intentionally start these deadly fires. I do not and never will what brings someone to do something so harmful and destructive.

The massive numbers of animals that have lost their lives because of these fires are f295df68-fe43-4c0b-be35-bc383fb4756e_360x203staggering. It is breaking my heart into millions of pieces as I am writing this because there have already been around half a billion animals affected by the fires and millions more have died. According to the Federal Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, almost a third of the koalas have been killed and a third of their habitat has been completely destroyed.

imgonline-com-ua-resize-GUCFfMpS1R6mAt this time 24 people have been charged with intentionally setting the fires. According to the New South Wales police department, there are also another 183 people that are facing legal action. For those that start fires deliberately and act recklessly with the spread of fires, they could be facing up to 21 years in prison. Personally, I do not think 21 years in prison is punishment enough, not only for the catastrophic damage left behind but the deaths of human and animal life.AUSSIE

These horrific fires are in every Australian state, but New South Wales has definitely taken the hardest hit. A state of disaster was declared in Victoria and a state of emergency declared in New South Wales in early January. In November, Queensland also declared a state of

emergency. All of this together has granted remarkable powers and additional government resources to help contain the fires. Thankfully, more than 2,000 fire fighters are working on the ground in New South Wales, with more from the United States, maxresdefaultCanada, and New Zealand on their way to assist.

Another topic that comes with various opinions that is causing difficulties for all living creatures is climate change. I think some are a little confused about what climate change means. Some will even try saying it is “fake news”, but it is very real. Climate change is any significant change in the measures of climate that lasts for an extended period of time. Basically, climate change is major changes in the images (1)temperatures, precipitation, and or wind patterns, among other effects that occur over several decades or longer. Think about how the weather has been behaving over the past few years, do you remember what the temperature was three years ago today? It is supposed to be winter where I live, but it is feels more like spring time. The temperatures significantly  warmer than they were a 2.2few years ago and there are so many rainy days, which I hate complaining about with all Australia is going through right now. I am very curious, do you remember what the weather was a like a few years ago? Do you notice a noticeable change? How can some ignorant people still insist that climate change and global warming is fake news? When are people going to wake up and take action to save our images (1)planet?

In 2020 the amount of hardships throughout the world seem like they are never-ending and strengthening day by day. I did only discuss a few because I didn’t want to torment you by having y’all read a short story detailing everything that is difficult that most, if not all of us are dealing with today. Considering I am logical enough to know I do not have the power to change or save the world. All I can really do is continue to hold onto hope and share information and positivity as much as I can. And I know I went on and on about the tragic events in Australia, but I just can’t ignore this because way too many innocent people had their world turned upside down. Besides from keeping Australia in our thoughts, I think we need to always remember the US military has been sent to Iran at the order from Donald Trump. There has already been one images (2)missile strike out of revenge for the US strike that killed the Iranian military leader, Qassem Soleimani. I think there has already been too many killed and the blood shed needs to end, we certainly do not need another 9/11 because of starting battles between countries.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site. I am sure what I wrote today shows how I feel about everything. I wish CQvxHiZWIAAQ-fqeveryone could learn to get along, be kind and respectful to one another, and stop the killings. I know there probably will never be world peace during lifetime, but I do hope it will happen someday. I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend and you are feeling well. I am looking forward to reading your comments on this post! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday

enjoy your FridayHappy Friday y’all! I hope your week was great and of course you are feeling the best you can. I know I told y’all yesterday that my week was very hectic, and I am so glad the weekend is finally here. It is going to be great not having all the limitations I do during the week and be a little freer. This will sound crazy to say, but my plans for the weekend are to dive deeper into the freelance writing world and hopefully have a game plan for my first steps. It is also my husband’s birthday on Sunday, so we will have a little celebration for him!

I have what I think is a great quote to end the week with. As y’all are already well aware, I think Friday is a perfect day to let go of any negative feelings we might have and anything that may not have gone as we planned during the week. Any goals we could have missed during the week, we can just try again next week with a clean slate!letgowhatcannotchange

I hope you found lots of meaning to the quote I shared with y’all today and hope it gives you the extra drive to finish the week out. Now that the weekend is finally here I hope you can enjoy every minute of it! Do what you love and enjoy because our imageshappiness is extremely important. At the end of the day we are the only ones that are responsible for our own happiness and we just have to aim for it! Even though it might seems like it sometimes, creating happiness in our lives isn’t selfish and  only makes those around us happier as well!

I hope your Friday is great and you are looking forward to the weekend. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this quote and even more happy to have time this weekend to get caught up with the blogging community. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

images (4)Hello and Happy Monday y’all! It is the first Monday of 2020, so let’s make it a good one! I hope you had a lovely weekend and you are ready to start this week off with pure determination. I have mentioned this before, but I did use to hate Monday because it meant the weekend was over and I had to get up early for the next five days. Maybe this came with age and experience, but I now view Monday as a time to start over again and correct any mistakes I made the previous week. Everything that happened last week is in the past and we can create a new beginning.

I heard the quote I wanted to share with you in a song and found it to be extremely our greatest fearpositive and motivating. Truthfully, even though I did hear this in a song it was my husband that reminded me of how powerful this was. I do hope once you read this quote it will provide you with the drive to start the week!

I am looking forward to reading your thoughts about this quote. Of course, it will not be until I get home from work, but I will respond as quickly as I can.16298855_10152561295339979_7744725577617436658_n1

I hope you have a wonderful start to the week and you are feeling the best you can! Even though I know it isn’t easy, try the best you can to stay stress-free and positive because nothing is worth what stress does to our bodies. I am going to try this year to not allow stress into my life and consume my mind because it hasn’t done me any good for the past 38 years. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort  and many positive vibes!
