Tranquil Tuesday

~Life Is Short & Should Never Take It For Granted~

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope you are having a good week and you are staying safe! Times are difficult for so many around the world right now and it is crucial to always try to show those we care about how much we appreciate them. Tomorrow is not a guarantee, so I am trying to focus on this more. There are still a tragic amount of people losing their lives because of COVID and this is a very unsettling feeling. Of course, this might have something to do with my Grandmother’s passing and my mother traveling to be with her, and the other members of the family, but I have been sensitive to this topic long before now.

Considering there are many awful things that are continuing to occur daily, it is important to try to stay calm and keep yourself composed as much as possible. My hopes are you will find the quote I am sharing peaceful and it even adds a smile to your face! I think one reason I find this quote calming is that it takes a strong person to walk away from an argument and a stronger person to not stay angry when they see nothing is being resolved. The older I get, the more I understand that it is important to pick your battles in life because most things are not worth the extra time. This is something I have found to be even more true in the workplace, especially when you are doing everything the right way! I have always been stubborn about my beliefs and thoughts, but I am wise enough to admit when I am wrong.

I know that at least in the United States, the number of COVID vaccines is limited, which I think is a shame. I wish that everyone was able to get this because it would make everyone that much safer. This virus has already killed more than 500,000 million people in the United States and this still breaks my heart. I am thankful that my husband and myself have received both vaccines, and honestly, if it were not for my husband I would still be waiting. Depending on where you live, I am sure you know what the rollout of vaccines is, but please until you are fully vaccinated continue to be safe. Honestly, even after you are fully vaccinated it would probably be wise to continue wearing a mask because of the other variances of the virus.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have wrote and the quote I shared. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this post and 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

  1. Actually the death rate isn’t extremely high… in some countries it’s less than half a percent. Every year, many succumb to the flu virus.. But it’s how people react to it that really matters.. it has been said, COVID is ‘teaching’ humanity a lot of things. So, it’s good we move away from fear and have a positive attitude. Anyway, souls don’t die, they just leave the body and transition to another dimension, I believe. Have a lovely 💕day.

  2. I’m still trying to get that vaccine… I understand that you still need to wear a mask because you can still “catch” covid and transmit it to others, but your vaccine-educated immune system will fight it off before you get sick, or at least make sure you have a mild case. I heard last night in a special that it does prevent severe disease and people going into the ICU.

    • I know how frustrating that must be and I think it is insane that everyone can’t be vaccinated. This virus is deadly and the US has already lost over 500,000 people. The other problem is the other variants of COVID. The COVID vaccine does not do must with these and unfortunately, viruses do continue manipulate into other types. I do think if everyone would wear masks or if in the beginning stayed home for a few weeks, there would be more control. Sadly, hardly everyone will do what is necessary and want to live their life they way they want to without consideration of other lives. I know you are logical and are doing what is needed, but everyone needs to behave in that manner. This virus is terrifying and sad.

      • I absolutely agree with you! I met with rheumatologist last week and the only time that I teared up was when I told her I struggled with depression last spring when I realized that the government was deliberating taking actions to downplay the seriousness of the pandemic ( no mask mandate, insisting that people return to work, saying it was just like the flu, etc.) and I was basically toast. No one thinks that I will survive Covid (but I think that my chances are better at the moment because of the monoclonal antibody), and people were basically okay with that. I was so ANGRY with the deliberate stupidity in insisting that the states just handle things on their own. I’ve already lost the life that I loved because of my autoimmune condition, so I get how people just want to return to normal, but that isn’t going to happen for a long time now. If only they had locked down aggressively tested and then isolated infected people away from their families we would be in a much better place now and literally 100s of thousands of people would still be alive!! The virus will continue to mutate and the versions that spread the best will out compete the others; luckily the vaccine technology will allow then to fine tune the mRNA vaccine to adjust as we need it. I am more hopeful then I was a few months ago and of course I am still taking all those safety precautions and wearing my mask. Still hoping for my vaccine soon as I have some invasive medical procedures coming up…
