Battle For America’s Soul

I want to give y’all a fair warning before you begin reading this post. It is definitely longer than my typical posts and about something WAY different than anything I have ever written about before. I am proud of what I have written, but it is controversial and I typically tread lightly on this type of topic.

The state of the world has and continues to be engulfed in extremely challenging times. Many of these issues we consistently see have blanketed the world for decades and are not displaying any of the changes we desperately need. Unfortunately, there have been massive levels of deception, hidden agendas, and misinformation shared with us, especially within the government.

While this is an election year, everyone has their own opinion of what is right and wrong. The levels of division throughout the United States, is increasing steadily and continues to bleed into the rest of the world daily. All of the political drama is even creating high amounts of tension and hostility between family and friends. I am telling y’all this and am very ashamed to admit, even though I detest politics, I do have incredibly strong views that are very opposite of some people that I know. Of course, this has caused some frustration and arguments with those who think differently than I do.

We have all heard there are some topics we should avoid discussing with family and friends, which couldn’t be truer. The two main topics that we have been told to avoid are religion and politics. Considering my strong and very passionate beliefs that everyone should be treated equally and with respect, I do not ever allow anyone or anything to sway my thoughts. Maybe I am too passionate about some issues, but that is just who I am.

I have tried the best I can to never to a post that was fueled by politics, but there are only 3 more days until Election Day. This year’s election might be the most important election of our lifetime because the lives of human beings depend on it. The lives of human beings must become a much bigger priority than politics and politicians feelings. Lives need to be more important that wherever you stand politically.

Now is an important time to really think and remember ALL the innocent lives that have been lost under the painfully failed leadership of Donald Trump. How do you think a strong leader should and would respond when faced with a deadly virus? Instead of warning the American people about this virus when he was first informed about it in January, he decided to downplay the virus. He continued saying it was a hoax and not that serious, and never admitted that wearing a mask was crucial. The man that is responsible for the deaths of over 229,000 Americans, still isn’t doing anything to help the people that he “works” for because he cares more about his failing pole numbers. A “man” that cares more about his ratings in an election than he does about the lives of the people he is supposed to protect is NOT a leader!

In my opinion, a strong, compassionate, honest, genuine, and true leader would care far less about being reelected and more about the lives of the people voting. Instead of foolish and immature name calling, a leader should stand up and do what is right! Constantly blaming China and calling COVID-19 the Chinese virus, the president should take some responsibility and admit to the world his wrong doings and fight to make it right. By the president calling his virus the Chinese virus, there are too many Asian American’s being harmed and bullied, which is wrong!

Tuesday November 3rd is the Election Day! Even though the virus causes major concerns for safety, it is SO important everyone find a way to vote this year! I am not and will not tell you who to vote for or tell you who I voted for because no matter where you stand politically, every vote matters. We all have a chance right now to do what is best and needed for the lives of everyone around the world.

Whoever the president is, whether Donald Trump is reelected or Joe Biden becomes the next president of The United States, he will have a huge and awful mess to handle. It is going to require time, patience, dedication, selflessness, and pure determination to recover or at least begin healing from the pain and tragic years we have endured.

Over the past few years it seems like the amount of hatred, disrespect, lack of accountability, division of people, complete disregard for the lives of others, bullying, and many other unkind behaviors are increasing rapidly. While this is happening, the important things in life such as truth, kindness, respect, compassion, and love are diminishing. Now, not as a Republican, Democrat, or Independent, we need to stand together as human beings and DO what is right for the county.

It doesn’t matter if you vote in person or by mail, just as long as your vote is in. The 2020 election is the MOST important election we have ever been part of. I do firmly believe the outcome of this election will make or break the United States. Of course, the United States is not a perfect country, but it has the potential to be much better than it is right now.

I am sorry if any part of this was offensive because that was not my intent. I am also sorry that this post sounded negative, but this is real life and I fear for the lives of other people. It seems pretty clear to me that the president does not care the way he should about human life. In fact, the president is holding rallies for hopes for his reelection and yet not enforcing any safety measures. Many people that have attended these gatherings have either ended up with COVID-19 or hospitalized due to extreme heat or cold, but that does not stop this man.

Whether you agree or disagree with anything I have shared in this post, you are entitled to your opinion. The one thing I know we will all agree on is, lives of others matters and keeping ourselves, our loved ones, and anyone with a beating heart safe MATTERS! Of course, I welcome your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. All I am going to ask is, I respect what your views are, so please respect mine as well.

Thank you for visiting my site today! This was definitely something very different from what I normally write about, but I felt it was time to let my voice be heard. It is time that we all need to unite, despite politics. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Pick Me Up Thursday

~It Isn’t Just Thursday, It’s Friday Eve~

Happy Friday eve y’all! I am so glad that we have almost made it through this week! This week has been rather long and exhausting, but at least the weekend is very near. Normally, Halloween weekend is filled with trick or treat, dressing up, and having fun, but with all that has happened this year it will be much different. In most places trick or treat has been discouraged for safety reasons. It is really a smart idea to avoid it this year and hope that next year things will be much safer and better for everyone.

I know this year has been very challenging, but we need to hold onto hope for better days ahead of us. We only have one day left of the week and we could all use a little pick me up to help us through! I find the quote that I am sharing with y’all uplifting because we all deal with various obstacles that we always manage to get through. I think the amount of obstacles we find a way around or through shows the shear amount of strength we have!

Regardless of what you have planned for the upcoming weekend, please do all you can to stay safe! I know how frustrating it is to feel trapped in the house because of this virus, but we must do what is necessary until this virus is under control. Y’all already know that I work from home, so I literally have no escape anymore. It is awful when home feels more like a prison cell. I still find it shocking when the few times I do leave the house how many people do not wear a mask. It isn’t like it is difficult, it is just uncomfortable. I still say, a little short-term discomfort is worth the safety of your life.

Thank you so very much for visiting my site today! I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your continuous support and kindness. I am looking forward to reading your comments on this post and the quote I have shared today. I promise, I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Inspirational Wednesday~

**We Have Made It Halfway, We Are Almost To The Weekend**

Happy Wednesday y’all! Just think, we only have two days remaining before we are back to the weekend! How has your week been? I hope you are having a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend. My week has been okay, work has just been so busy. I prefer to have my days busy because it makes the week go so much faster!

Now that we are almost to the weekend and still have two days of the week left, I think a little inspiration could be very beneficial! We all deal with so many issues in life, but we are all still so strong! This is one of many reason I find the quote I am sharing so powerful and rings the truth! I hope this quote will provide you with inspiration and show you how amazing y’all truly are!

I think y’all already know that I work from home, right? Of course, I have not met anyone that works for my company, but I have built a great relationship with them. There are so many great people that work for my company and so many others that are lenders that are just as amazing to work with. We are working more than we aren’t, so it is nice to have good and helpful people in the virtual environment.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a fabulous and stress-free day! I also hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and look forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

**Tranquil Tuesday**

~Lets Us Be Calm Always~

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope your week is starting happy and pleasant! The good thing is we have made it through one day and only have a few days left. Well, we have four days left until the weekend technically, but I think we can handle it. Even during these extremely challenging times, we all find a bright light that carries us through. Our strength, courage, and, pure determination is endless, which are all great qualities to have!

As we enter the second day of this week, we all could use some tranquil and calming thoughts! I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will serve a purpose for you and be beneficial as well! Once you read the quote and the rest of this post, I would really love to read your fabulous comments. All of you have such great insight on everything and I truly value your opinions!

I do not know about you, but this year is going by so fast. In a sense, it is great that the year is flying by, but the reason for why the year is going by so fast is pretty sad. Y’all know it is time to change the clocks this weekend, right? Fall back, which if I am not mistaken we actually again an hour sleep! Fall/Autumn is my favorite season because it is not too hot or too cold, the weather is just right!

We have been dealing with this pandemic all year and the end seems so far away. I think it is challenging to keep up a positive out look when so many are losing their lives or someone they love, or becoming very ill, or losing their jobs because of COVID-19. I still feel that if we all can continue following the very brilliant advice from top professionals, like Dr. Fauci, the Centers for Disease Control, and World Health Organization,we may have some hope to see the end of this pandemic and get back to our true normal!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared with y’all, and also hope you are having a great week so far. I promise that I will respond to all your comments as quickly as I can, but it might be after work. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

**Motivational Monday**

~Start This Week With A Smile & Hold Onto That Smile~

Happy Monday y’all! Let me start by saying I am sorry that I missed my “Let It Go Friday” post and the other posts I have been working on. Honestly, I worked close to 50 hours last week, so I was exhausted, and then battled with a massive headache on Sunday. Thankfully, I am feeling a little better now and hope to be able to finally finish two other posts I have been working on this week.

I think it is important to begin our new week with a positive mindset and with as much motivation as we can! I try my best to find the best quotes I can to help motivate y’all and begin your week in the best way possible. Monday morning is never the most desired day of the week, but it can be viewed as a way to make up for what did not go the way we planned last week. Everything YOU do, all YOU want, and every dream YOU have is important, so please never forget that! Basically, I want YOU to know how much YOU all matter to me!!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is continuing to get worse every day. New cases and deaths are increasing at numbers we were used to seeing back in the beginning of the pandemic. There were a few months when the numbers started trying to try stabilizing, but now it almost seems as though we are starting over again. We are all tired of social distancing, wearing masks, and staying at home, but we need to continue doing what is necessary by following the good advice we have heard from the experts. Please take care and do all you can to stay as safe as possible!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I am looking forward to reading your comments on the quote I have shared, but also on what I have written. What you think means a lot to me and I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope your week begins great and only gets better with each day. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

~Pick-Me-Up-Thursday~

~Happy Friday Eve Y’all~

We have finally almost made it through this week! How has your week been? This week has been a long one, but it is almost over. Today is the day of my first virtual appointment with my new neurologist, I am hoping it goes well. I will do a post about how my appointment well, but I do appreciate all of your kind and encouraging comments!

Now that we only have one day left of this week, I think we could all use a little pick me up. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all, will serve you with the right amount of encouragement and lift you need to make it just one last day! With all that is going on with COVID and the stress it is causing, we all need to stay together and help one another get through all this stress!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your Friday Eve goes well and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. Please always remember I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday!

Halfway Through The Week!

We are finally almost through the week and I am thrilled about that! This week has felt long for some reason. I hope y’all are having a great week though and you are looking forward for the weekend, which is getting much closer each day! Even though I do not have any plans for the weekend, I am still looking forward to not having to wake up early and sit in front of a computer for more than 8 hours a day. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful that I am able to work from home, but that also means work and home are pretty much the same thing, it just gets a little confining.

While things around the world are still so uncertain and unpredictable, I think we need additional inspiration, motivation, and much more kindness! This was one reason I decided to add “Inspirational Wednesday” to my blog posts. I am hoping the inspirational quotes I share on Wednesday inspire you and provides you a little extra comfort! Of course, I think the quote I am sharing today is very inspiring because we all deal with something challenging in life and we must keep going. I do believe that everything in life happens for a reason and tends to happen at the right time. What do y’all think?

If y’all are following what the experts are predicting about COVID-19, you already know they believe we are in for more difficult times ahead of us. The numbers are consisting increasing and the deaths are way too high. I have admitted this to y’all before, but I am an overly sensitive person, so when I hear someone speaking on the news that lost a loved one to COVID, it breaks my heart. My husband and I stay home, and when we must leave the house we are taking all the necessary precautions. Neither one of us are ready to lose the other or anyone else in our family. I am saying this to reiterate to y’all to PLEASE continue doing what we all need to do! All of us can protect one another by simply wearing a mask!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and I hope you are all having a great week! I am sorry to always sound like a broken record with my pleads for everyone to stay safe, but we all have the opportunity to save another person’s life, and that includes our own! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday

We Need More Tranquility Daily For Our Sanity!

Happy Tuesday y’all! How has your week started off? My week has actually started pretty great, except for the ridiculous pain in my legs. I am thankful that I do not need to leave the house and do not have to walk much, but it still hard to deal with. Honestly, if I did have to leave the house and go to an office, I might not be able to because the pain in my legs is just that awful. Anyways, enough of that negativity and onto more positive news! Things with my job are going very well and I have even been requested from at least one of our lenders. I have made nice with them and really enjoy working with the lender!

We have made it through one day of this week and have four to go! From how the week started, I am thinking it is going to be a good week! I have my first appointment with my new neurologist on Thursday and thankfully it is virtual! I have heard nothing but great things about the new neurologist, so I am actually a little excited about it. I do not want to get my hopes up too high because I do not want to set myself up for disappointment, but we will see how it goes! From my own personal experience I know the typical personality of neurologists, but hopefully this one will be different.

To try to maintain the much needed tranquility we all need during these very challenging times, I have found what I think is a great quote. I do look forward to reading what you think about it though because your opinions matter so much to me! I find your comments truly amazing and insightful! I will do my best to respond to all your comments as quickly as I can, which might not be until I get off work.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a good week and of course, you are staying safe. Times with COVID are unfortunately getting even more scary, but as long as we are following what the experts are suggesting we should be okay! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Let’s Begin This Week Off With A Positive Mindset!

Happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? I hope your weekend was full of relaxation and happiness! Honestly, my weekend was fairly uneventful, and I enjoyed that. I feel sometimes we all need the entire weekend to recuperate from a long and busy week.

With all of the changes that have gone on with the weather, I have been dealing with my typical increased pain. Now, I do deal with this every time there is any changes in the weather, but for some reason Sunday was a lot worse. It is a good thing I didn’t have any plans and didn’t need to leave the house because my legs hurt so bad it was painful to even walk. No matter how high my pain is, I will never sit around and feel sorry for myself because it could always be worse and life if just too short I guess we all deal with health issues and we make the best of it.

Sadly, the weekend is over and we are at the beginning of a fresh new week. It isn’t even easy to say goodbye to the weekends, and my cats especially hate it because now Mommy will be in her home office locked away from them all day long the entire week. Yes, my cats are babies and demand a lot of attention! I almost feel a little guilty that I have to be locked away from them, but it would be nearly impossible because they would both be walking all over my desk, laptop, and the paperwork on my desk. They would amazing co-workers, if they would not try helping SO much!

Now that we are at the beginning of a new week, that is hopefully filled with fantastic opportunities I think we all could benefit from a little motivation! My hope is that the quote I am sharing with y’all will kick start your week with the right amount of motivation, optimism, and encouragement that is necessary to start a week off on the right track! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote and also how your weekend was!

Oh my goodness, almost forgot to tell you about something truly shocking and amazing happened at almost 5:00 PM on Friday. Y’all know that I had started a new job a few months ago and the work is similar I have done previously. The only issues have been the lack of training and the consistent changes that do not usually make sense. Anyways, the good news is I received an email from a team lead telling what a good job I was doing, and that she and others in management were very impressed with me. This made me feel pretty great and helped build my confidence.

Thank you for visiting my site today and I hope you have a splendid start to your week! I know I have been slower with my responses to your comments, but I promise I will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!
