Pick-Me-Up Thursday!

friday eve 2Good morning Y’all! I hope you had a nice week and you are looking forward to the weekend! I can tell you I am really looking forward to the first weekend that I do not have anything that has to be done and I can just relax in the new house. It will be nice to not have to work a 6th day as that has been so far beyond exhausting.

I am still adjusting to the new full-time job, but I am also really enjoying my new job. It has been a while since I had to work full-time and thankfully the people I work with are really great and I am red dotlearning so much. It is nice to work for a company that actually cares about others and does it’s best to help those that are struggling. I learn more daily about how much my position is involved with the community, which is giving me a great opportunity to use my compassionate side to assist families with their new homes affordably. 

Even though I do enjoy what I am doing now, I am still extremely fatigued and a little push to get through one last day of the week will be so helpful. I assume a little pick-me-up would be beneficial for y’all as well. This quote I am sharing with y’all today means so much to me as I am adjusting to the new ways of life and I hope it will resonate with you as well. Stress has always been a difficult thing for me to control, but I do feel like I am handling things much better now days. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts about this quote and I do promise to respond as quickly as I can!i-will-breath.jpg

Slowly, I am trying to figure out how to add blogging back into my weeks again while working a full-time job. I do feel because of my pure determination and real true love for writing I will get there, but maybe not as much as I was doing before. I just need to get use to things a little more and I will be back to actually participating. I honestly do miss quote-1-fear.jpgbeing able to read your amazing posts and comment like I did a few weeks ago. The interactions have always been fabulous. I also miss being able to come up with great topics to write about and read your thoughts! Things just take time and learning a new routine, but things will get easier. 

I appreciate y’all visiting my site this morning and I hope you have a wonderful stress-free day! Hopefully your weekend will be filled with lots of happiness and doing what your want to! Please know even though I have not been around much I am still sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Friday EveGood morning y’all! I hope you have had a great week so far! The week is almost over and then we have the weekend to do whatever we could not do during the week. My weekend is going to be spent exactly the same way it was last weekend, finishing up moving the final things from the old house to the new house. What fun, right? So in all honesty it is NOT much fun at all, but I guess you have to do what you have to do in life. At least Saturday will not be as much hard work for me as it was last Saturday, but sleeping in and doing nothing sounds SO much better!!

With the week coming to an end, y’all know I think we need a little pick-me-up to make it one last day. I hope you find meaning in the quote that I am going to share with y’all!jkrowling1-2x

I hope you have a wonderful day and I definitely look forward to reading your thoughts on this quote. I hope any of you that live in Florida have found safer grounds! I wish y’all wellness and safety. Please know that I am sending of you in the path of this hurricane comfort and peace. I do worry about all of you! Please know that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!

Two weeks has past!

Time-for-an-UpdateGood evening y’all! It is incredibly hard to believe that it has already been two weeks since my husband and I uprooted our lives by moving to a new state and city! Two weeks ago when we made this change I was terrified about the decision we had made, but now I couldn’t be happier we made this fabulous move! I think the new city and my new job have done so much for the sanity I still had left and my massive stress-levels. The new city is a little smaller than where we were living and so far the people are a lot nicer.

My new job has so far been absolutely amazing and the people are SO very kind, which is a huge change for me. I mean don’t get me wrong, there were a few people at the old job that were great, but the bad definitely out-weighed the good there. My new boss is an older man who stays very busy with good things comenumerous meetings and tasks, but when he is in the office he is super kind and willing to answer any questions I might have. So far, my job has been very interesting! I have been learning about what my job entails and how to maintain a schedule for the VP of Finance. There is so much more to this job that I am very excited to learn. I am thrilled that I am going to be traveling with a co-worker for a week of training out of the state. This training will make me become a Certified Housing Counselor. I am looking forward to the chance to build relationships with the home buyers and feel that I will be able to offer a lot of compassion and understanding during a stressful time for them.

I work with so many incredibly nice and understanding people. Of course they only have one name to remember, where I have about 20. Thankfully, everyone is extremely understanding when I have to ask their name again, which has really only happened once or twice. empathy

The moving process was stressful and a lot of hard work, which caused me a great deal of fatigue and pain. I wasn’t the best with resting because I just wanted everything done and organized immediately, which is impossible. It has only been recently I decided that we have plenty of time to get things situated in the new home. There doesn’t need to be a rush on things because thankfully time is on our side with the new house. The only thing that is important  and time sensitive is we MUST get our old home ready to be sold and hopefully sold sooner than later! I look forward to the day we get a phone call saying we have an offer on the house! I am logical enough to understand it will take time before the townhouse actually sells.

As y’all already know, I am trying to find my way to continue blogging because I really do love it, while working a full-time job, which I haven’t done in a long time. This process is afinding-my-way-text-893x1024 trial and error situation, but I am determined to make this happen! I know many people probably will never not fully understand this, but I find writing and blogging a great way to reduce any stress I am feeling. I think most of y’all already know that I battle with stress issues, but I am working to improve this. I think being a walking/talking stress case for 37 years is long enough and now it is time to change my ways.

I do believe that my new job is improving my stress because it is a wonderful place to work. Please know, I am working on getting caught up with reading and commenting on your posts, while also working on my own blogging thoughts. I appreciate all the encouraging words y’all have shared with me over the past weeks and I am looking 6a014e601f2a5b970c014e887a4cfb970d-600wiforward to getting back to a semi-schedule with my site.

I hope y’all have had a great day and I really hope you are feeling well. I am honestly struggling with some pain issues at the moment, but it is possible it is due to the rainy weather☔. I know it is going to be rainy for a few days with the hurricane heading towards Florida and even though I am a few states away from Florida, we are still expecting a lot of rain🌧. My body doesn’t appreciate or tolerate rain very well, but I am going to keep a strong hold on positive thoughts because I think that is important. In a matter of days the rain will pass and hopefully the weather will be calm!

I want to thank you for visiting my site this evening and I do hope you have a lovely evening! I will do my very best to respond to any of your comments as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

Motivational Monday!

happy-monday-good-morning-wish-image-pics-happy-monday-imageGood morning y’all! I hope you had a lovely & enjoyable weekend! My weekend was spent finishing up things at our old house. My husband and I were at our old house for 8 hours working very hard on Saturday! Thankfully I was able to spend Sunday just relaxing and preparing for my second week at my new job! I am so happy to report I am still liking the people I am working with and the job continues to get even better. 

A few weeks ago while working at my old job, I needed to read motivational quotes in order to get my mind in the right place for another week in a very hostile work environment. Today when I share a motivational quote with y’all it is because even if we enjoy our job, we need a little motivation to get over the weekend blues. I hope you enjoy and find meaning the quote I am sharing!4b1e4bf6e558e23c71d008a9ad443670

I have many reasons why this quote holds meaning for me, but I would love to read what you think. So many times in life we might become unhappy with where we live or what we do for a living , but so often forget we do have the power and ability to change things in our life. My husband and I just moved about 2 hours from where we started our journey together and I started a completely new job. My point is, we were not completely happy in the city we were living and I was miserable at my job, so we adjusted our sails together in hopes for better times!screen-shot-2013-10-21-at-9-50-28-am

Thank y’all for visiting my site this morning. I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope you are feeling as great as you can. I want y’all to know that I am slowly working to get back to a good blogging place, not because I have to but because I want to. I know many people would say to not stress about blogging and I shouldn’t add anything extra to my plate right now, but writing and blogging are a great way for me  to release pressure and stress! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Friday EveGood evening y’all! I am sorry that I am a little late with my pick-me-up Thursday quote, but better late than never! I hope y’all had a good day and you are looking forward to a lovely weekend! I know I have already said this, but I am still getting back into the swing of things after the big move! It definitely hasn’t been easy, but life is what you make of it, right? We all have a choice as to how we live our life! I do believe that happiness is a choice and life does work out the way it is meant to in time!

I hope you find great meaning in the quote I am going to share with you! I am definitely not the best at remaining calm at all times, but I am trying to get better at this. I guess you can say the older I get the more I realize that getting worked up over things doesn’t help the situation, it only makes things much worse for the one dealing with it! When I get worked up about simple issues it makes me feel terrible for days and nothing gets accomplished.calm mind

I am hoping to get back to my normal routine next week, but working full-time again is rather draining! Always know that I am sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

It is catch up time!

whirlwindThe past few weeks have been like a whirlwind with so many changes and I feel like I am constantly on the go. Packing up the home my husband and I lived in for 8 years was extremely overwhelming, but we managed to get it done. It is crazy how much 2 people can accumulate over the years! We already have 4 rather large boxes packed up ready to be donated to either Goodwill or Crisis Ministry. I feel like it is far better to donate to others in need than keep items we do not use and never just throw things away!

I am sorry if I have not responded to your comments or had a chance to read your playing catch upfabulous posts, it might take me some time, but I am going to be playing catch up for a few days. Please bear with me through this transition and I will be back to normal, well as normal as I can get soon! I do miss y’all and I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. 

I will give  y’all a brief run-down of how things are going for me and my husband. I did start my new job and it is great! I am working full-time again which I have not done in a long time, but I am doing well. The people I work with now are absolutely incredible! We have been living in our new place for one week now and I know how to get to 3 places, work, the grocery store and the pharmacy! Pretty amazing, right?! We are still in the dontprocess of getting things organized, but we have plenty of time for all that so there is no use rushing anything! With working full-time again, I am still going to do my best to continue creating blog posts, but they definitely will not be daily. Again, please do not give up on me because I am going to be returning to doing what I really enjoy, which is my blog and communicating with y’all!

I hope y’all have a nice evening and you are feeling well! Always remember that no matter what I might be going through in life,❤ I will always be sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!

Y’all know that I think it is best to start off each week with a little motivational quote. I do believe being able to start a new week off with positivity makes for a great week! I hope y’all enjoy this quote and find a lot of meaning to it!be-afraid-
