~Pick Me Up Thursday~

~It Isn’t Just A Thursday, It Is Friday Eve~

We are finally almost at the end of this extremely long week! How has your week been? I hope your week has been great and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. I am working the morning, well until noon and then going to a doctor’s appointment. Unfortunately, this is one of those appointments I have to go to the office for, but I am always safe! I definitely I wish I could have done it virtually, but some doctor’s are not very cooperative.

With only one day of the week left before the weekend that we are all always looking forward to, we might be needing just a little pick me up! I am truly hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will give you the lift you need to get through one more day! I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quote I shared today and will respond as soon as I can, which hasn’t seemed to be very fast lately. In my defense, these headaches I keep having are miserable and it isn’t easy to look at the computer screen.

Do you remember the weekends before the pandemic? I remember days in the past when I would have ideas of what I wanted to do over the weekend, but since the pandemic invaded our lives my plans are to stay in the house and safe. Even though I am thankful to be able to work from home, it sometimes seems like I am always at work because I hardly ever leave the house anymore. Although I am not excited about driving to my doctor’s appointment, I am thrilled to be leaving the house for a few hours today!!!

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today! Your continued support and amazing comments are very appreciated. I hope your week has gone great and you are looking forward to a safe, and relaxing weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

  1. I can appreciate that you quoted Tony Robbins this morning. He has been in inspiration to so many. And though he is sometimes over the top with his ideas, he often brings the listener an object lesson that cannot be ignored as it rings true to the one he is talking with. He had made an impact on my life almost 30 years ago and his stories of neurolinguistic programming was truly inspirational to me as a young adult. He was not afraid to make a difference in someone’s life.
    On this note I had been talking to my banker the other day. She is a friend who cares about the customers, both internal and external. I ended the conversation with “have a great day and go make a difference.” I had to laugh when she said that make a difference day was, as it so happened, Columbus Day. I thought to myself why do we have to wait until a designated day to make a difference. It seems so impersonal. It’s like waiting until Valentine’s Day to tell that someone special in your life you love them. Totally impersonal. Grab life by the horns and take a risk knowing that you may be rejected in the moment. But so what? At least you did what you could because you never know when their last moment will be.
    Norman Mailer once wrote, “Life asks us to be a little braver than is comfortable, a little more generous, a little more flexible. It means living on the edge more than we care to.”
    One of my favorite movies is Dead Poets Society. The teacher portrayed to his students to take a risk and your will be more full. Unfortunately not every one of the students had the opportunity to take advantage of the fullness of life. But I believe that he did find fulfillment in his actions.
    Carpe diem is the quote for the day. Seize every opportunity to give recognition to the ones who hold you up but do not be afraid to acknowledge someone for their individual greatness. When you deposit a small coin of adulation in the account of someone, their account becomes so full that they cannot help but give to someone else and it cost you nothing but a little risk to say the words that mean something to them in the long run.
