Let It Go Friday!

It’s time to let go of negative emotions from the week & enjoy the weekend!

Happy Friday y’all! We finally made it through the week and I hope you had a wonderful week! Do you have anything planned for the weekend? I know that any plans you may have, y’all will stay safe, right? I know this will come as a surprise to y’all, so brace yourself, I have nothing planned at all. I know you must think I just live a boring life, but truthfully, this is what I prefer because of my intense fears of COVID-19.

As this week finally comes to an end and with so much going on around the world that may cause some stress and or negative feelings, I think today is the perfect day to attempt to let those emotions go to hopefully enjoy the short weekend. The weeks are so long and the weekends seem to get shorter, we need to be able to enjoy it as much as we possibly can. I am hoping you will find the quote I am sharing with y’all today encouraging and it helps you let go of any negative feelings you may be carrying with you.

It breaks my heart anytime I hear the news because there are so many awful things going on and not just with the virus. I have never understood why there is so much hate that is only building throughout the country. In my eyes, we are all simply imperfect human-beings with a heart and feelings. It does not matter how much money you have in the bank, the house you live in, the clothes you wear, cars you drive, or anything else because what matters is the way you treat others. I feel pretty confident that y’all agree with me on this, but please let me know what you think.

Thank you for visiting my site today. As always, I appreciate you taking the time to read what I have shared and I also love 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!

Always, Alyssa

Pick Me Up Thursday

Happy Friday Eve!

How has your week been? I don’t know if you have felt like your week has been excruciatingly long, but I sure have. I mean it was not an awful week, just learning so much with my job. I have also managed to get to know people I probably will never meet! Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful for the training I am receiving and even more thankful for this work from home opportunity, I would not mind doing a little less Zoom. I do not enjoy being on camera at all! While I do not care to look up and see my face, it is a little amusing to see what other people look like!

As we are approaching the MUCH needed weekend and knowing it is a long weekend, we do have just one more day to get through. I think it is time for a nice Pick Me Up quote and hope y’all will like and appreciate the quote I am sharing today. I would love to read your thoughts and feedback on it and I do promise to respond to ALL comments as quickly as I can!

I hope you have a great and safe day. The best way to view things right now is that we are alive and have the opportunity for another day here in this world. Life can without a doubt throw curve balls our way and sometimes they miss, but other times they hit us hard and we have to find a way to carry on. Read and pay attention to the quote I shared with y’all today. Martin Luther King Jr was not dealt a fair hand, but he fought the fight with passion and dignity. There is so much shame with the way things are right now in this world and I can only imagine what he would say to people in this world today. I think y’all know this about me already, but I believe in treating everyone with respect and fairness!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today. I am looking forward to reading your fabulous comments. I am working on two posts right now, one is about Pain Awareness Month and the other is about how everyone has something to say about whatever illness we may live with, but they do not really understand the struggles that are really there. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Inspirational Wednesday!

We are halfway through the week!

Happy hump day y’all! How has your week been so far? I hope it has been good and of course, y’all are staying safe! I have made it through two days of amazing training and I must say, I value the time we are getting because there really is SO much to learn in the mortgage world and it seems to be changing all the time.

With today being our halfway point in the week, many of us are looking forward to Friday. It is a great Friday because it is a holiday weekend, so I will have three days off! Of course, I do not have any plans because I still do not feel that safe with the virus spreading as much as it is. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with a little inspiration and it will help you through the next couple of days!

First, I want to send a gentle reminder to please do everything you can to keep yourself and your family safe during times of continued concerns for COVID-19. I know I must sound like a broken record because I do say this in every post, but I worry about y’all. This virus is relentless and doesn’t care who you are, you could become a victim of this awful virus. I know wearing a mask when out around others is very uncomfortable and suffocating, but short-term discomfort is worth yours and those you love life.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great hump day or Wednesday, whichever you prefer! Hopefully your day is full of great things and happiness. I hope the quote I shared with y’all today provided you with a little inspiration and you are feeling great! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Stay Together Tuesday!

One Day Down, We Are In This Together!

Happy Tuesday y’all! How is your week going so far? Honestly, my week is going pretty well so far. There was a new training class for work yesterday and it will carry through until the end of the week, I enjoyed training and learned so much! I am actually looking forward to a few more days of training. I think knowledge is beauty and power!

With everything we are all dealing with around the world and I think it is crucial we all stick together. Unfortunately, we can all understand each other’s concerns with COVID-19 and we can support one another. I wish I knew when this virus would go away and leave us alone, but I do not think anyone has answers for this. Until then, let’s continue to stay together, but yet apart safely! Y’all know I have already been doing Motivational Monday, Pick Me Up Thursday, and Let It Go Friday, but I think we could all use a little extra positivity and togetherness at this time. I hope you will find the quote I share positive and encouraging for togetherness and I look forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I possibly can!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a wonderful and safe day! With COVID-19 still causing so much stress and illness it is so important to practice ALL safety procedures the professional suggest. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

A New Week Brings New Opportunities!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope y’all had a great and safe weekend! Are you ready to start this new week off with a positive mindset! Monday is never the best day, but it does bring us seven more days for greatness! I do hope this week brings you nothing but seven days of happiness and the gains you deserve!

As we begin this week, I do feel a great quote will provide us with the motivation we all need! I hope you will enjoy the quote I share and I do look forward to reading what you thought and promise to respond as quickly as I can.

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued support and truly love the communication we have with each other. My only request for all of you is please stay safe this week. Unfortunately, this virus isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so we must continue practicing all necessary safety requirements. Also, please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Inspirational Wednesday!

We are halfway there!

Happy Wednesday! How has your week been so far? I hope you are having a great week and you are staying safe! For those of you that read my post from yesterday, you already know my week has been long and frustrating. I am making some changes though so that the same old things will not bother me anywhere near as much as I have let them previously. It is important to realize what is important in our lives and what isn’t, but also what we can change and what will never be different.

I have been thinking that I want to do more with all the amazing quotes I have found over the years. I already do Motivational Monday, Pick Me Up Thursday, and Let It Go Friday, but I want to do something on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. I have a name for Wednesday “Inspirational Wednesday” but still, need a name for Tuesday, so if you have any ideas I would love to know!

For my first ever “Inspirational Wednesday” post, I hope the fabulous quote I have will offer you some inspiration! There is so much going on around the world right now and it can be pretty scary, so I think if we can have a little more positivity and inspiration throughout the week it might help our week go by a little better. We must all remember how our mental attitude and ways we spend our time can be either beneficial to ourselves and the ones closest to us OR do the direct opposite and it cause more issues.

There have been many horrible things happening in the United States where we can’t seem to go one week without an unnecessary person being killed or critically injured by police. I thought when I was younger that the police were here to protect and serve, not kill unarmed and innocent people. Unfortunately, it seems that times have changed and not for the better. I hope that something will change with this because no one should die at the hand of someone that is “supposed” to protect! No child should ever have to see their father gunned down by police!

I hope you have a wonderful and safe day! We have almost made it through the week and only have a couple of days left until it is the weekend! I know this post had several different parts, but the part about justice is because I am so tired of seeing that another innocent person was shot and killed by a police officer. You would think after the massive riots that occurred, the police would be on their best behavior, and also with COVID-19 still being horrible things would have stopped, but it hasn’t. We need to support the people that can’t stand up for themselves and support them twice as much!

I do love reading your comments so I hope you will leave one for this post and let me know what you think! One thing I will ask y’all again is to please do what you can to stay safe, I do not want any of you to get COVID-19! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Tuesday Requires More Energy

Only Tuesday & It Has Already Been A Painful Week Emotionally!

How is it only Tuesday? It feels like it should at least be Thursday! Many things have occurred already for me that have been both physically and mentally painful. Stress always causes additional pain, but this is ridiculous. Of course, weather can also increase my physical pain and Mother Nature can’t decide if she wants to rain or be sunny, so it has been both within minutes of each other.

I have always been the type of person that thinks of everyone and anyone else long before myself. I will not lie to you and say I am trying to fix that about me because I am not. I am trying to eliminate stress as much as I can, but that is extremely challenging for me. Sometimes it seems like stress comes in several different storms and on many different levels of severity. I am not naive enough to think I can fix other people’s issues, but I cannot help trying to alleviate some of other people’s pain and heartache. Truthfully, it does not work and I know that will never change.

With all that said there is a beautiful quote I thought would be good to share with y’all. This might help y’all if you are having a difficult or frustrating week. Or it might just make you think about someone else that might need a little support and love from someone that cares! Sometimes while it is necessary to spread the love to others, it is also important to show yourself a little love as well! I would love to read your thoughts on this quote, please!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my site today and read what I have wrote. I hope the quote I have shared with y’all will have some meaning to you and prove you with positive feelings. I hope your week is going well so far and truly hope you are continuing to stay safe. I hope you will never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Sunday Revitalization!

*Sunday Prepares Us For The Upcoming Week*

Who would have thought the weekend would fly by as fast as it did? It really seems like it was Friday just a few hours ago, but it all reality it is just about time to begin another new week. I hope your weekend has been full of nothing but happiness and you are staying safe!

As our weekend comes to an end, we need to make sure to end it with a great sense of positivity. In my opinion, if we end the weekend with an optimistic mindset, our week will start with the same level of optimism! I hope you will enjoy a fabulous quote I found that I would love to share with y’all!!

Thank you for stopping by my site today! I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quote I shared and would also love to know how your weekend has been! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please continue to stay safe. I hope y’all never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

**A Little Extra Optimism**

**Smiles & Happiness Make A Huge Difference**

While we are all still learning ways to deal with and accept what our “new normal” is, it can continue causing so many fears and stress. No one knows when or even if COVID-19 will come to an end allowing us to live comfortably and not wear a mask anytime we leave our homes. Of course, masks are suffocating and not comfortable, especially when the temperature is pushing 100 degrees outside, but a little discomfort can possibly save our lives.

In the meantime, as we are waiting for things to settle down, it is important to try remembering the positive aspects of life. So, let’s make a list of things we enjoy and some of our favorite things. It has been so long, some of us may have forgotten what it means to enjoy and favorite means. Enjoy means either to take delight or pleasure in or possess and benefit from. Favorite means preferred before all others of the same kind.

Now that we have had a little reminder, what are five things you enjoy? This can be anything you can think of, the sky is the limit! To get this started I will share my list of five things I enjoy the most.

1. Listening to music because this helps me relax and even helps my massive stress issues.

2. Of course, I enjoy writing. This is something that has always helped me to process and let go of my emotions, both positive and negative.

3. My husband probably will not appreciate me sharing this, but he will be okay. I enjoy watching General Hospital at night with my husband while we eat our dinner.

4. Even though my two sweet cats can get rather obnoxious at times, I do enjoy time with them fighting over my lap. Our older cat has an overwhelming need to sleep almost on my head every night; we actually end up sharing the pillow.

5. I enjoy quiet and drama-free evenings and weekends at home with my husband and our cats. Many people would say this is boring, but there have never been any troubles or issues caused by times like this.

We were already reminded about what favorite means, so now comes the questions! What are some of your favorite books, authors, movies, music, TV shows, places to travel, colors, meals, etc.? I guess this can be a little tricky because some favorites can go hand and hand, but we can have a little fun with it or at least I hope we can. I am going to share my five favorite types of music/musicians and my five favorite books/authors. I am hoping y’all will share some of yours as well because I think it will be fun and interesting.

Truthfully, I love most music. I am not a huge fan of country music though because it always makes me sad and that isn’t what I want when relaxing listening to music. So five of my favorite bands are the following:

1. Red Jumpsuit Apparatus because they will always hold a special place in my heart considering my husband proposed on stage with them before they sang “Your Guardian Angel”.

2. Radical Something because no matter how awful my mood is, their songs can make me smile and be calm. Their music has beach vibes, probably because they are in California!

3. Simple Plan because they have a calming, chill, and relaxing vibes. This band is from the country my husband and I have talked about moving to, Canada. Depending on the outcome of the upcoming election the move may happen sooner rather than later.

4. Taking things a little old school, but yet still current is Fall Out Boy. This is a rock band that started off playing in their garage back in Chicago Illinois before making it to the big time. My husband and I have enjoyed this band for many years now!

5. The Pretty Wreckless is an amazing rock band that took me a while to warm up to, but that was because my husband pushed them on me too much. I am a very stubborn person and when something is pushed on me too much, I will fight to hate whatever it is. This band is from NYC and has several songs that can make anyone smile because the singer is singing what most of us are thinking and feeling.

To save y’all a little time from reading too much, the only other favorites I am going to share is who my three favorite authors are and some of my favorite books by the author. My top three favorite authors are James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, and Kelly Rimmer.

James Patterson has written many fantastic books and continues doing so to this day. I find him and his books very addictive and almost impossible to put down once you begin. Patterson’s series “The Women’s Murder Club” is one of the BEST series I have ever read. There have been 20 books released so far, with the 21st set to be released in 2021and I have read 19 of them. I had to slow down reading these books because it was torture when I finished a book and had to wait for the next one.

Another book I read by Patterson that was outside The Women’s Murder Club series was “Filthy Rich”. The incredible details he wrote in this book had me despising Jeffrey Epstein long before he was even arrested because it is a horrible and jaw-dropping story. Honestly, after reading the book I thought Patterson was supporting that disgusting and appalling perverted man causing me to not want to read another book from James Patterson. Thankfully, I later saw an interview James Patterson did and it was crystal clear he did not and never would support anyone like Epstein.

While James Patterson is an astonishing and enthralling author, Nicholas Sparks is a captivating author on a whole different level and style. Since Nicholas Sparks began his writing career in the mid- ‘90’s with his first book, “The Notebook” that was not only a best-seller but even turned into a hit movie later. He continued his incredible journey writing many other fabulous and beautiful love stories that could bring tears to anyone’s eyes. A few more of his books that were brilliant consist of Two by Two, Every Breath, The Best of Me, The Last Song, and The Choice, but there are many others that would be very worth reading!

Kelly Rimmer is a truly spectacular author from the beautiful country, Australia. I have read all seven of her books that were released in the United States and cannot wait for her to release another. Kelly has an engaging and engrossing way to keep her readers completely mesmerized. She adds an emotional twist to the stories she writes. Kelly has a natural ability to make you feel every emotion each character is feeling.

The seven books that I have read of Kelly’s were so amazing they would be worth reading a second time. The books I have read were: Unexpected, Before I Let You Go, Suspending Reality, A Mother’s Confession, Me Without You, When I Lost You, and The Secret Daughter.

First, I want to thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your weekend has started off well and you are staying safe. Weekends are our time to rest and recuperate from a long week. I hope you are enjoying this post and you will share some of your favorite things and things you enjoy because I think it will be fun to see how much a like of different we are all. I admire differences because it allows for us to learn, grow, and build relationships!

I am looking forward to reading more of your posts this weekend and learning more about you if you are able to make a comment! Whatever the rest of your weekend holds, please do everything you can to stay safe! I hope y’all never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday!

Let’s Begin This Week With A Positive Outlook!

Happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? I hope it was wonderful and safe! Honestly, I did not do much over the weekend. It was uneventful and relaxing, which is what I really needed. Last week was so long and exhausting, I do hope this week will be better for all of us. Thankfully, I did not have a migraine over the weekend and only hope to make it through this week without another that causes me intense pain. It is not possible for me to look at a computer screen with a migraine.

The start to the week is never easy because we realize the weekend is over. No matter how difficult it is to let go of the weekend and begin another long week, I know we can all handle anything and everything thrown our way. Of course, the weekend flies by and it seems like it was Friday a few minutes ago, but this week could have so many benefits and amazing opportunities to offer us!

I think y’all already know that I think starting the new week off with a motivating quote is necessary. Unfortunately, the entire world is so full of so much hate and negative emotions. None of this has solved any of the world’s problems, so we need to combat this with love, acceptance, and positivity! Maya Angelou is a powerful and very encouraging person. I value her brilliant and amazing quotes, and I hope this quote will serve you with the motivation needed to begin the week with hope, positivity, and encouragement!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a lovely day and you continue doing what is required to stay safe. I would also love to read you thoughts on Maya’s quote. I promise to 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!

Always, Alyssa
