About Positively Alyssa

I was diagnosed 18 years ago, when I was only 19 years old, with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis. I had gone to my eye doctor because I had lost vision in my left eye. Prior to my appointment, I had prepared myself to have the doctor confirm that I would be blind in my left eye and that was all. Never in a million years did I expect to hear the doctor tell me that after consulting with his colleagues, that I need to go for an MRI that day because they were thinking that with my symptoms that I had MS. Just a couple hours later I went to get the life altering MRI. I remember that phone call like it was yesterday. My eye doctor called me from his home at 9:30 at night to confirm what they suspected, I in fact had MS. He immediately referred me to a specialist he knew and I was able to get in to see him that same week. Luckily, after a round of steroids, my vision came back in my eye just leaving me with leg pain that would continue to be part of my life. Through the years I have tried numerous different medications that are meant to slow the progression of the disease down. I was never good at the injections and it wasn't because of the needle, it was because the medication burned like fire going in. Still after all these years I still go through my battles of denial, anger, frustration and sadness. However, I have always said that I would NEVER allow MS to control my life but I would control the disease. For the most part, I have been pretty successful with that. I mean we all have our bad days but it doesn't make the situation any better. With this blog I am hoping that with my experiences, endless amounts of research and a powerful fight i me that I can not only help others going through this but that I can learn from others as well. Living with the ups and downs of MS can be challenging but the power of the mind can beat anything that is thrown our way!

Higher levels of consciousness

higher-level-of-consciousnessMost humans are unable to comprehend what higher consciousness is because they stay comfortable at a lower level of consciousness, where they are primarily concerned with themselves. They typically remain more concerned about their own well-being, survival, and success.

There are those unusual times when there aren’t any threats or demands and the body and passions are stagnant allowing for an opportunity to access a higher mind. Neuroscientists call what is experienced at this time our neocortex, which allows us to neocortex-2acknowledge our sensory function that includes imagination, empathy, and impartial judgments.

According to Mary O’Malley, a certified counselor and author of “Belonging to Life: The Journey of Awakening”, we have six levels of high consciousness. O’Malley also believes that getting to higher consciousness will require specific shifts in our perception, behavior, and awareness. These shifts are crucial to advance to the next levels.

The following are O’Malley’s six phases of higher consciousness:

  1. Life happens to you-

perspectiveYou realize that you are not a victim of life. It is understood the more unconscious we are, the more we feel like we are the victim. Feeling like life is happening to you, the more often you will view things as threats. Being in a victim mindset doesn’t do anything for learning to be open to the thoughts that life is in front of us.

  1. Life happens by you-

This is the first stage of higher consciousness, which many people find themselves to be stuck in. Even though we might feel powerless in this stage, we will begin to control everything about our life. We finally stop being a victim of life and begin to live life by our own intentions. We know we aren’t creating our own reality, but instead clearly view it as showing up to a reality that has already existed.

  1. Life happens to you-higher-consciousness-compressor-1152x603

Once we have quit trying to control our life, we learn something wonderful; life isn’t something that can be controlled and being open we know life occurs delightfully. It is in this phase of higher consciousness we being choosing ourselves. What this means is we focus on ourselves, not in the past or any person or things that have caused us hurt and or harm.

  1. Life happens for you-

This is the fourth and most difficult stage in higher consciousness. The reason this is the most difficult stage is that it is based on trust. We must let go of our control and believe EmilysQuotes.Com-initiate-habit-choosing-choice-thoughts-thinking-ideas-feeling-good-feelings-support-powerful-consciousness-amazing-great-wisdom-advice-inspirational-Wayne-Dyerthat everything has a purpose, meaning and it will lead us somewhere amazing. There is something incredible and soul-altering with learning how to let go and just let things be.

  1. Life happens through you-

At this point, we have overcome the life-altering stage of acceptance and now need to focus on feeling. This might be the most peaceful part of the discovery of higher consciousness because it is all about gratitude. During this stage, we notice our awakening to the acceptance of what we can’t control, which offers us peace and calmness.

  1. Life is you-0127relaxedrelationships-e1511970848168

Our excursion was all about questioning our existence, changes, and finally coming to terms with those changes. We are no longer a separate being, but we have merged into the creative flow of life and comprehend that everything and every-being are what they are and we are who we are.

The 7 step guide to achieving higher consciousness, according to O’Malley:

  1. Develop awareness-

Don’t just go through the normal motions; instead, expand on the awareness of what is Dvv__FNXcAA7ohogoing on around us. It is important to question everything while staying in the present internally and externally. By maintaining your awareness of everything inside and around us, our ability to react meaningfully to life will be much greater.

  1. Introspect-

We will not be able to attain our higher consciousness if we aren’t processing our internal struggles. We need to take time by ourselves, understand our thoughts, and determine the source of our struggles before we can begin reaching for higher consciousness.

  1. Control yourself-

We will be able to conquer our own reactions to our internal process and external circumstances of life once we allow our “observer self” to be released. Controlling one’s self is more than simply ending our impulses or delaying our reactions, but more about being accurate with them.19d203fc1da00ccd23768f834f6dd0ff

  1. Know and educate yourself-

Achieving higher consciousness requires a lot of awareness. Knowing who we are, what drives us, and what motivates us to take action. Self-knowledge is acknowledging our strengths, weaknesses, and negative human tendencies. The essential part of self-education is to consistently cleanse ourselves of bad habits while continuing to work on our virtues.

  1. Develop discipline-

Being disciplined means not letting our thoughts and or fears to control or silence ourselves or interfere with our journey to higher consciousness.

  1. Listen to your gut instincts-

quote-and-we-re-seeing-a-higher-level-of-consciousness-and-many-more-opportunities-for-people-neale-donald-walsch-30-62-13Many people believe that intuition is the highest form of intelligence. Intuition is quiet and less assertive than the intellect of the mind. Intuition is often ignored because it doesn’t put demands on us. It is vital to differentiate between good and misleading intuition because it can be easy to realize the difference if we are paying attention.

  1. Think first and speak later-

The majority of our issues in life are a result of our inability to think before we speak.D59WCDJU0AAoxT3

Do you know if you are changing to a higher level of consciousness? If you encounter any of the following signs you are more than likely changing to a higher level of consciousness and I do hope you will embrace this experience with open arms and enjoy it.

  1. You have softer energy-

While we are transitioning a higher level of consciousness, we will begin letting go of the anger and aggression we use to cling to. There’s no longer room for feelings that were generated by animosity while we are concentrating on our own inner workings.

  1. You take full responsibility for your life and where you currently are-

relaxWe have stopped trying to blame others and understand our past is a result of our experiences. We recognize we have learned from our past and embrace it.

  1. You own your emotions-

We do not rely on anyone else to bring us happiness because we know we have the power to create our own happiness. We no longer fear what might happen in life because we have prepared for any obstacles that might arise. We can even spend quiet time alone without feeling unproductive.

  1. You practice self-love-7e02134de77061ecee344d5e540ec1e9

We started taking care of our own needs before handling the needs of others, partially because we realize we won’t be able to help anyone else if we don’t take care of ourselves. We don’t expect perfection from ourselves and we now embrace our imperfections. We use our imperfections as a chance to grow into higher levels of consciousness. We value time alone to explore the inner workings of our mind.

  1. You are kind, loving, and compassionate-

We can forgive ourselves and others easier. We relish with helping others through their journey. We are constantly trying to improve ourselves and offer assistance to those CskKzCZWgAE6VNFaround us. Many people have noticed our new and standout kindness.

  1. You have a strong desire to change yourself-

There is something inside us encouraging us to make notable changes to our life. As we begin transitioning to a higher level of consciousness, there will be somethings that no longer fit in our life.

  1. You pull away from toxic people-

We are unable to deal with anyone that drains us of our positive energy. We will not welcome any drama into our life because it is full of negative energy and not worth the progress we have made in reaching a higher level of consciousness. We have determined that toxic energy only decelerates our transition.

  1. You have trouble sleeping-29a0550c907d31c872d07eb065f17fb5

It is not uncommon to struggle with sleep during your transition to a high conscious state. This may happen during those late nights or early mornings because our subconscious mind is sending messages to our conscious mind.

  1. You get rid of your destructive habits-

Whether we used to eat an unhealthy diet, drink alcohol, or smoke, don’t be shocked if we have no desire to partake in any of our previous bad habits. It has become clear to our long-term victories involve removing some indulgences in the short-term.

  1. You are more productive than you have ever been-

7cb1d4ef7f660f479fcc8df3b4ef2465We have the ability to work more accurately because we are in the present with everything we do. All of our priorities are clear, we do not surrender to distractions, and we do not waste any of our time. Our stress levels are lower because we can visualize the bigger picture and the ways everything fit together in the way we imagined it would.

  1. You no longer feel the need to compete-

We no longer feel the need to prove ourselves or compete with others because we are not comparing ourselves to anyone. We now realize that by helping others instead of competing with them, helps us to enhance our future.

  1. You have an immense sense of gratitude-af70c68ae852a3fc35e4b367ab5ebcf1

We value everything we currently have and what we will have in the future. We are grateful for the good we are able to see in the world. We are appreciative that even though there are still many things to be worked on, we will be a part of the solution as opposed to being the problem.

While we find our way to the discovery of a higher level of consciousness, we realize our entire life is improving. We recognize positive changes in comparison to that of the way we were in the past, that being infantile and self-centered.

Welcome the changes we have experienced and our natural capability to help others as the will to provide us with a higher level of fulfillment in our own life. The changes we 3772078-Wayne-W-Dyer-Quote-But-when-you-get-to-a-higher-level-ofhave made are good because it means we are becoming an even better person. Find peace in the changes made and respect the astounding person we were always meant to be.

The Importance of Compartmentalization

compartmentalize-lifestyle-1Life can be challenging and often we do not get a break, but need to keep moving. During the day or week, we are confronted with so many difficult decisions and the million things we want to get accomplished. All of this was just personal things that do not matter too many people. Besides what we are going through our own experiences, we still see so much tragedy when we view the news.

 

If I were to ask you what compartmentalize meant, what would you say? There is a lot tocompart be said regarding the answer to this question. If you are anything like me, it wasn’t until I spent hours upon hours researching this topic because all I want to provide you with it the best and most clear information I possibly can. Compartmentalize is an internal process of putting feelings towards someone or an experience you had away from your immediate thoughts. This is also a way to lighten the emotional baggage we carry with us everyday. Chances are we have many things going on in our life that need to be compartmentalized to keep them from overlapping other things in our life. Utilizing compartmentalization can be a way of doing something that under normal circumstances, you would never think to do. Of course, there are both healthy and unhealthy ways this can be implemented.

Compartmentalization can be used as a healthy way to handle and even manage emotional situations. Healthy compartmentalization is a tactic we can use in our daily lives; to reduce the weight of existence, protect at least some of our personal peace and to chase our happiness.

human-emotions-compartmentalizedCompartmentalization can be used as a defense mechanism and to gain the endurance we need for any situation we may encounter or it can show how our minds deal with conflicting internal standpoints simultaneously.

Compartmentalization can be unhealthy if we only try to continuously ignore our emotions because we will never be able to ignore them indefinitely. Memories, good or bad, tend to have a way of revealing themselves anytime without warning. There isn’t a way to keep bad emotions hidden for long, which is why we should tackle our problems when we are emotionally ready to.

I am going to share two different healthy techniques to compartmentalize our emotions. The great thing is, this places us in better control of how we address serious issues in their own time and place.

  1. Try extreme focus-

It is normal and common when placed in a stressful situation to act based on instinctsort-categorize-compartmentalize-organizes and the desire to compartmentalize the stress by pushing the stress to the side. It can be helpful to push everything, accept for our stressor to the side and put your focus on what is causing the stress. An entrepreneur, Ryan Blair, calls this technique extreme focus and suggests setting things aside for a brief and distinct period for us to jump into one specific problem. It is important to know when that time is up, close that compartment, and move on with our day.

  1. Create healthy boundaries-

There are times in our life there are people that provoke painful memories or topics every time we get together with the person. Sometimes it might be best to gently reject the invitation. No one can expect to compartmentalize healthy if we are feeling pressured by the environment we are in because this will only lead to a sea of negative emotions. Once we are feeling secure with the issues at hand, we can readdress future divorce-compartmentalizationinvitations.

  1. Don’t make false connections-

If we intend to live a well-balanced and positive life, we will not be able to have a compartment for every emotion we have. There will be some smaller problems that we can choose to simply let go of, disconnect them from the more urgent issues, and move on.

The goal behind compartmentalizing emotions and life is not to allow any unnecessary or extreme attention to situations that don’t warrant for. We can designate specific things and then put them away in a box. We only will open a box when we are steadily searching for direction, knowledge, solutions, or you are dealing with a similar situation. We are teaching our brains to not dwell needlessly. Below is another way to utilize compartmentalization.

  1. Identify the situations and circumstances that need to be compartmentalized

It is important to visualize we have various boxes in our minds. Each of these boxes cani-am-in-control-prints accommodate our thoughts for any given situations that need to be compartmentalized.

  1. Determine what thoughts, emotions, and worries that need to go in each box

Write down any thoughts or worries that are associated with any specific thing. It could make how we understand our views of emotions and thoughts easier.

  1. Determine appropriate times to address the contents in our boxes

Our lives can’t fit easily and methodically in a box, so we will typically open one box at a time and handle something we see. For the most part, we will handle certain issues as they arise.

1516733-Terrence-J-Quote-I-ve-really-learned-to-compartmentalize-theIntrusions are not always avoidable, which means we need to find ways to carry on. Being predictable is very helpful. This also means we don’t open any of our boxes until it is necessary.

  1. Take time to open boxes and process the contents within

Problems compartmentalizing can create are avoidance and procrastinating. It is crucial to not forget one thing and then avoid another because if we continue doing this the contents within our boxes will overflow and it will make going through the boxes more complicated. We should only open a box when the time is right.

  1. Work on keeping this in their respective boxes, until we decide to deal with them againCompartmentalization-longside-e1516683510343

This is the hardest part. This might be a new habit and the form of mindfulness will also be new. It does take time and practice, but in time we will have many benefits for our physical and mental health.

I hope this information was beneficial for you! I did share two different healthy ways to compartmentalize, so you can decide which one works better for you. Maybe neither of them work for you, which is perfectly fine because there are a few other ways that might be better suited for you.

Let it go Friday

1665142_1000x0Happy Friday y’all! I hope your week went well and you are feeling the best you can. Hopefully, you have been able to steer clear of that mean coronavirus and you aren’t feeling too isolated. I have been trapped in the house for 5 days and even though I am starting to go crazy, at least I have been away from all the cases that keep coming up near where I live.

There is no denying the sheer amount of sadness and fear I have felt these last few weeks. I know that I am a very sensitive and emotional person, so I bernie.cover_.final_guess it is to be expected I get misty-eyed the more I hear of people not surviving the virus. Heck, I got misty-eyed reading the report after the debate between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. My husband and I both support Bernie because he has the right idea to make our country better, especially after the disaster it is in after Trump. I strongly believe that Bernie Sanders is a man of true integrity and love for the people, not the greedy establishment. Unfortunately, it appears we will either be facing 4 more awful years under the Trump administration or be under Biden, who would hopefully be better than Trump, but who knows?

Moving onto more positive thoughts, are y’all ready for the weekend? I know that is let-it-go-quotes-23probably a rather stupid question considering it isn’t the best idea to be in public places, but it is still a weekend with no alarm clocks! I did find what I think to be a great quote and hope you will as well!

Y’all know that I think of Friday, as the perfect day to let go of any negative emotions. We have definitely been through a lot over the past few weeks and it isn’t images (1)going to be easy to let go of all of those negative emotions. Too many people have suffered because of the coronavirus and for any of us that have not had to deal with anything too tragic, we need to be thankful. Considering we have heard that being too close to people right now should be avoided, we can at least call those that we care about to check in and let them know we are thinking about them. During this awful time, I want y’all to know that I do worry about y’all and wish nothing but the best for you share-the-love-eps-vector_csp59691544moving forward. Please take care of yourself and pay attention to what those in charge are telling us. I am not by any means saying you should listen to Trump, because most of what he says isn’t truthful. However, when we are told to avoid public gatherings, we need to obey.

I want to thank you for visiting my site today. I appreciate your continued support and love reading your comments. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Finding Inner Peace

inner-peaceDo y’all know what does inner peace means? Inner peace is a state in which you are mentally and spiritually at peace, despite the potential of any stressors that might arise. When you truly have inner peace, you have fully accepted yourself and therefore, do not waste your precious time, energy, and attention on unimportant thoughts. Inner peace is the direct opposite of anxiety and worries.

There are things we can do to find our inner peace.

  1. Set your limits-set limit

By knowing when to stop, we can minimize being preoccupied with certain things that do not matter in the bigger picture of life. What this means is we can set a certain amount of time to spend on social media because that is something we do not need to spend unnecessary time on. I am sure many people will disagree with me on this, but we can live without social media, we can survive!

  1. Try to relax-

take breathExperiment with deep breathing exercises to help release your tension. Deep breathing is something that can be done anytime and anywhere. You can practice breathing in through your nose slowly, allowing your chest and belly to rise as your lungs fill with air, hold inhale for 4 seconds. Then slowly exhale through your mouth for 6 seconds.

If this doesn’t work for you, do a little research on other relaxation techniques until you find the one that works best for you.

  1. Don’t make any issue bigger than it is-

When facing an issue you think is huge, take a break and ask yourself if this situation will still matter in a few days, weeks, months, or years. Asking and answering this question will help you to keep things in perspective.

  1. Slow downslow down

Constantly being stressed and panicked can have many negative effects on your mind and overall health. Most often by simply slowing down, you will have a chance to lower the feelings of stress.

  1. Unclutter your life-

If your workspace or home is cluttered, it may keep your mind preoccupied. Personally, when my house is a mess, my thoughts remain fixated on everything I have to do. I tend to make a to-do list with everything I need to-do in order of importance. The issue with this is, I only make the to-do list in my mind and then feel keep-calm-and-be-a-minimalistoverwhelmed, which nothing gets done.

  1. Be a minimalist-

This can remove the unnecessary distractions from your life, allowing for peace of mind, clarity, and focus on a welcomed new thought process.

  1. Be prompt-

Even though being prompt might be a small and easy habit, it can be a huge help for our schedules. Maybe being 10-15 minutes early will only give you those extra minutes to relax and recharge, but you will be amazed to how much it helps our mental status. Every free minute we have in this unpredictable and stressful world is very beneficial to our body!

  1. Learn to accept and let go

We all have heard that saying, the past should stay in the past. It seems that this notionlet_go_expectations has been lost, but we need to try to bring it back into our thoughts. Nothing will ever change, no matter how much we stress or constantly think about it. It will be in everyone’s best interest to focus our attention solely on the present, never the past or even the future.

  1. Ask, don’t guess-

Most of what causes our stress is our assumptions. The truth is, no one can read minds, but too many still try which only causes too much unnecessary anxiety. Instead of assuming anything, we need to have much more open communication and ask escapequestions!

  1. Escape for a short time

       What this means is to allow yourself time to recharge and even some soul searching. This isn’t quitting anything; you are just enhancing your life!

  1. Quit Procrastinating

      I know not all problems can be solved quickly, but we can’t procrastinate trying to solve our problems. Honestly, the longer we wait, the more tension and stress we will feel.

  1. Disconnect from work-

Your work life should never belong in your home. Weekends and time not at work are offline-is-peace-of-mindyour time to recharge and not think about deadlines. I was never good at this when I had a job and wish I had adopted this thought process a long time ago, but I will when I do have a job again.

  1. One thing at a time-

There are times when multitasking can be a great quality. However, multitasking can also cause too much stress. The thought process of focusing on one thing at a time can be healthier for your health because it will take a lot of stress off your shoulders. Everything will still get done in time.

  1. Focus on good memories-

focus-on-a-positive-memoryWe tend to focus too much on our bad memories, instead of all the good memories we have. Maybe we do this because those bad memories caused some trauma and we will rethink what we could have done, but that isn’t going to fix anything. If we try replacing our bad memories with good ones, we will hold onto the strength we felt during the good memories. This might take time, but it will be beneficial to our mental and physical health.

  1. Meditate daily-Daily-Meditation-1-735x675

Meditating is the most common way to discover your inner peace. By meditating even for just 15 minutes a day, it will help you discover and hold onto your inner peace. A fellow blogger shares some pretty amazing meditation ideas, so I will encourage you to check out her site. Bella’s site is https://thoughtsnlifeblog.com/

Evil headache/migraine

07182018_phases_of_migraine_Flickr.2e16d0ba.fill-735x490I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for almost 20 VERY long years. During this time I have experienced pain, numbness, dizziness, vision problems, the infamous MS hug, and so much more. The only thing that can really get me down and unable to do anything is the headaches or migraines whatever they may be.

Yesterday all I wanted to do was write, but I wasn’t able to due to a nasty and quite evil migraine. While we are going through this awful pandemic of the coronavirus, I have been told by two great women, my mother and mother- in-law, I should stay in the house because of my weak immune system. While I do understand that grocery stores and other places that have a lot of migraine-headachespeople aren’t a good idea for me, I hate knowing I can’t do anything. I guess it would be much easier if I was making this decision and it not be forced on me. Even the morons in the government are saying people with underlying issues should not go into public places. It is all I can do to not disobey the government idiots, but my health is more important than my distaste of them.

Thankfully, today my headache/migraine is much better and I am able to write again. I plan to write and read as much as I can while my headache/migraine is at bay. I only hope it stays this way because it is the only thing I can do that I enjoy.

5 Fascinating Facts About MigrainesI do want to share a little information about migraines with y’all. All the information I am providing is the information the Migraine Foundation had discovered.

  • Migraines are the 3rd most prevalent illness worldwide
  • 1 in 4 households have someone with migraines
  • Migraine sufferers are 18% women, 6% men, and 10% children
  • Migraines are most common between the ages of 18 and 44
  • 90% of migraine suffers have a family history

Migraines are more than just a bad headache and suffer from more symptoms including

  • Typically a severe throbbing recurring pain, usually on one side of the head, about 1/3 of attacks will be on both sides of the head
  • Attacks often have one or more of the following disabling symptoms: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch, and smell, and tingling or numbness in facial extremities
  • About 25% of migraine sufferers also have a visual disturbance called an aura,aura
  • which usually lasts less than an hour
  • 15-20% of attacks have other neurological symptoms before the actual head pain starts
  • Attacks usually last between 4 and 72 hours

Most people don’t understand how serious and incapacitating a migraine can be

  • 6th most disabling illness worldwide
  • Every 10 seconds, someone in the United States goes to the emergency room with complaints of head pain, and approximately 1.2 million visits are for acute migraine attacks
  • Most sufferers experiences attacks one for twice monthly, more than 4 million people have chronic daily migraines, with at least 15 migraines a day each month
  • More than 90% of sufferers are unable to function during their migrainesMigraine-Triggers

Migraine is a chronic disease that significantly diminishes a person’s quality of life

  • More than 4 million adults experience chronic daily migraine
  • Medication overuse is the most common reason why episodic migraine turns chronic
  • Depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances are common for migraines sufferers
  • Over 20% of chronic migraine sufferers are disabled

I do hope this information was helpful for you, but I also hope non of you ever have to experiences this miserable pain. This probably won’t sound great, but if I had a choice between the pain I was in yesterday and death, I think death would have won. Like IArticle_migraines-impact already said, I can deal with pain and keep going in life, but headaches/migraines will keep  me in bed with an ice pack that melts too soon, unable to eat, and an irritability that makes me just as evil as the pain.

Coronavirus Pandemic

coronavirus outbreakHi y’all, I hope your week has been going well and you are feeling the best you can. I know I do not have to say this, but it has been a CRAZY few weeks. Everything that is going on with the coronavirus has been mined blowing and stressful. I hate admitting this but I am at high risk because of medication I take for MS requires my WBC be low. I am not that old, but the only time in my life that ConfirmedCoronavirusCases020420_v03_DAP_hpEmbed_16x9_992schools closed was for a massive snowstorm and it was only for 2 days tops! Not only are schools closed for who knows how long, but everything else is closing as well. People who are elderly and people with medical issues are urged to not leave their homes. I am not good at sitting around the house doing nothing.

It is apparent that this virus wasn’t taken seriously at first. Anyone who has watched the news knows that in the beginning, the president of the United States wanted to say it Coronavirus-SARS-MERS_Onlinewas a democratic hoax and FAKE news. Why did it take people dying for the government to take it seriously? When dealing with a crisis due to a pandemic, it takes a strong, honest, and mature leader to address it, not an immature idiot that behaves like that bad kid playing at the playground!

This is a time everyone needs to work together or people are going to continue dying. togetherThis isn’t the first time, but it is certainly the most ridiculous time for the government of the most powerful country in the world to not put people’s lives over money, hatred, politics, and any other ignorant reasons.

Maybe I am wrong, but I believe it would be best if all countries could work together to find a way to end the spread of the coronavirus. This is NOT a time for COMPASSION and EMPATHY! No one that has a heart cares what the damn stock market is doing and sure as hell do not want to hear about it when the president goes on covid-19-symptoms-v03live TV.

Thank you for visiting my site today! All of this has been weighing heavily on my mind and I felt like writing about it was the only way to get through it. I am working on two others post that because of a migraine/headache from hell I wasn’t able to complete yesterday. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this post. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!
