Motivational Monday!

Motivational Monday 2Good morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to do those things that bring you the most joy! My weekend was spent inside the house because of the absolutely nasty weather we had! Saturday was very cold and rainy, which turned into a wintry mix of snow and freezing rain. Thankfully we didn’t lose power as some people living close to us did. It seriously looks like a winter wonderland, but this is the south so this isn’t common!

Considering my weekend was pretty much held up inside due to weather, a motivational quote will be so helpful in getting my week started on the right foot. I hope you find this quote as meaningful as I do.failure builds character

I guess this kind of ties into my post from last week about the only true failure is giving up, which none of us will do! This nasty cold and wet weather makes me feel absolutely terrible with pain and fatigue! Hopefully the forecast will improve some and maybe we will see the sun! 

Thank you for visiting my site this morning. I am really looking forward to reading your comments as I know they will be just as amazing as you are! I hope you have a good day and you are feeling the best you can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of ❤ love, comfort and many positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday!

happy-thursday-wishing-you-all-a-happy-friday-eve-x (1)Good morning y’all! I hope you have had a wonderful week and you are feeling the best you possibly can. How was your week? My week has actually been pretty good. I am still learning more about my new position and have even more tasks that are being assigned to me almost daily. It makes me feel rather good that my boss and co-workers have enough faith and trust in me to give me new more to do!

Even though I do love ❤ my new job, I am still so glad the weekend is almost here. I enjoy weekends where I do not have anything that HAS to be done and I do not have to get upcat-relax early! I honestly never really sleep late, but not being required to wake up is a great feeling! Do y’all have any weekend plans or are you just going to be spontaneous? Spontaneity is a glorious thing and can be very relaxing! I am glad that I will have a couple of days to work on the blanket I am crocheting and clean house! Who is ever happy to have time to clean? 

Even if you have had an amazing week, I do still think a little pick-me-up helps make it one more day! Do you find the pick-me-up’s helpful? I was just curious if the Motivational Monday and Pick-Me-Up Thursday’s was beneficial to you. Personally, I find the quote I am sharing with y’all today very true, but look forward to reading your thoughts, because your opinions are fantastic!quotes-about-rest-and-relaxation-life-is-like-a-roller-coaster-live-it-be-happy-enjoy-life-funny-quotes-rest-relaxation

The reason I find this so true is because living with any chronic illness almost feels like we are on a roller coaster ride and we just have find ways to handle it the best we can. I do believe all of us may have difficult times, but we manage to succeed because of our strength! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I hope you have a wonderful day and truly hope you are feeling well. I am looking forward to reading what you think of this quote and your thoughts about the quotes I share twice a week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes.

Motivational Monday!

Monday corrects past weekGood morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I hope you are ready for the new week! Monday can be viewed as a chance to let go of anything and everything that might not have gone well last week and just try again for a better outcome this week. It is so important to acknowledge that ALL the choices we make in our lives can have a huge impact not only on our life, but on many others as well.

I am a FIRM believer that we should all NEVERBest Never give up quotes pics images (24) give up on our goals or dreams. There is no question about it life gets extremely difficult at times and we often wonder how we are going to make it through those hard times. It is so incredibly important to NEVER give up and always continue to try our best at everything in life because determination will win in time.

The quote that I am sharing with y’all today holds so much meaning to me. I really hope once you read it you will also find a lot of meaning and it will help you to never allow anything in life to defeat you, as you are SO much stronger than that.defeat

Of course I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on this quote, but I wanted to never_give_up_hope_5_multiple_sclerosis_postcard-red5159ed8abf436e96ddcf5b61308358_vgbaq_8byvr_307.jpgquickly share with y’all why this means so much to me. Many of us deal with chronic illnesses and or other struggles in life and I know how hard it can be. You might remember me saying this in one of my earlier posts, but I will remind you about it. When I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis almost 19 years ago I made a promise to myself that I would NEVER allow this illness to defeat me. It isn’t easy but I have bfa0ee13a5cbf740e7fe43df086ccd04held true to this promise. There have been many times when the MS became so frustrating and difficult, but I am still here to say it hasn’t taken as much from me as it could have if I didn’t so fight hard against it. The pain, headaches, fatigue, muscle spasms and neuropathy I battle daily hasn’t ended but I still won’t give up the hope I hold for a cure.

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

friday eve 1Good morning y’all! I hope you have had a good week. My week has been pretty long and very busy, but thankfully it is almost over! I guess in all honesty I can’t complain because I have learned so much about my job duties. My job duties continue to expand, but at least I am helping others. 

On the last Thursday in the month of November, I think we could all use a little pick-me-up. I still can’t believe how fast 2018 has gone by, but there have been a lot of positive changes in my life during this year, so I am thankful for that. I hope you enjoy the quote I am sharing with y’all today and I hope you find LOTS of meaning in what it says!positive thoughts

I do believe that positive thoughts can change most situations. With all we deal with in our lives, if we only saw the negatives in everything, we would miss out on so much that can bring us joy. Of course life isn’t easy, but if we try to find the positive in most situations we will be much happier and in turn bring that happiness to so many others!

Thank you for visiting my site this morning. I hope you are feeling the best you can and I hope you have a wonderful day! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

motivational-monday.jpgGood morning y’all! I hope you had a nice long weekend! Four days off of work was definitely a really great opportunity to enjoy life. There was never any rushing around or having an annoying alarm wake me. Thankfully I was able to get up when I wanted to, which was still early, but not as early as I have to for work! I hope y’all enjoyed your long weekend and the holiday we just had!

Going back to work after being off four days isn’t easy, but we do what we have to do. I definitely feel like a little motivation would be beneficial for all of us. I hope you enjoy the quote I am sharing this morning and I hope you find meaning as you read it!17-best-ideas-about-power-of-positivity-on-pinterest-quotes-54947

I look forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. I have actually learned how to balance working full-time, still blogging and doing other things that make me happy in life. Over the weekend I started crocheting another blanket for our love seat in our living room. I wanted this blanket to match the other blanket we use for our couch, but just a little smaller! Crocheting is a fun and relaxing hobby! 

I do believe that Monday is the perfect day to make a fresh start. Everything that Monday corrects past weekhappened last week is in the past and it is incredibly important to forget about what went wrong and work to make this week better! We all make mistakes that we wish would could take back, but with those mistakes we normally learn many valuable lessons to make ourselves that much better!

Thank y’all for visiting my site this morning. I hope you have a great day and I really hope you are feeling the best you possibly can! Whatever you do, please remember nothing is worth getting stressed about and that includes work. You and your health are way more important than anything related to work. Things will get done, even if it isn’t today, tomorrow is another day! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of ❤ love, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Motivational Monday 2Good morning y’all! I hope you had a lovely and wonderful weekend! Thankfully, our entire weekend was sunny, but very chilly! It was so refreshing after our week of rain to actually see the sun again! Oh course the chill in the air did cause some pain, but the sun did offer a healing ability that can brought so much joy and peace to the soul!

The quote that I want to share with y’all this morning means so much to me and makes so much sense, if only I could implement it daily! Anxiety tends to try to control my life, but as I get older that needs to change because it just isn’t healthy (not that I am old though).This amazing quote is something I want to add to my life for my own sanity!Forget-yesterday

I hope you have a great day and you are feeling the best you possibly can! I am looking forward to reading your fabulous thoughts on this quote because y’all are always incredibly wise! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Always continue living!

nobodysaidNo one has ever said that living with a chronic illness was easy, but so many of us do. Some of us find ways to live through the pain caused from our illness with dignity, grace and determination. After all many illnesses do not YET have a cure, so it is just best to push through the best we can.

If we allow ourselves to remain focused on whatever illness or illnesses we struggle with, I believe we would miss out on all the good things life has towhen-life-gives-you-reason-to-cry-smile-stars offer us. It isn’t worth losing the happiness our life can hold by dwelling on the struggles we face. It is difficult and yet possible to turn all the pain and hardships we wrestle with into something beneficial, I know how crazy that might sound but it is true. Some of the ways we battle through life can be very inspiring and encouraging for SO many others.

Y’all already know that I have lived with Multiple Sclerosis for 19 very long and painful years, which is more than half of my life! If I had just given up all hope when I was first never-give-up2diagnosed, I would never be where I am today. Yes, life gets really complicated and frustrating, but overall I am in a very good place. My husband and I have moved to a new city, as y’all already know. We are living in a great home that is where my husband’s amazing grandparents raised their family. There is so much love ❤ built into the walls of our home and I swear you can still feel his grandparent’s spirit in every inch of this house❤! This is a very comforting and reassuring feeling that I am thankful for.

I am pretty sure y’all already know this about me by now, but just in case you ever questioned it, I believe holding on tight to positivity ❤ can go a long way. If you are constantly in a negative frame of mindimages (2) nothing good will ever really happen in your life, which could just be because you aren’t able to see something great that is right in front of you or you aren’t allowing yourself to feel it. Staying negative all of the time just creates a dark cloud over your head that follows you everywhere you go and there is no way to hide from it. Negativity can create a blind spot to anything and anyone that could actually be wonderful.

I know that it is completely impossible to be positive 24/7 365 days of the year, but it isn’t healthy to remain negative all those days either. There is always a manageable balance 26550426-balance-bad-or-good-scales-on-white-isolated-background-3dbetween the good and the bad; we just need to acknowledge the differences and keeping moving forward!

I hope y’all have had a lovely weekend and you are feeling well today! It has been a sunny and chilly weekend, which is MUCH better than chilly and rainy. Thank you so much for stopping  by my site today and I do really look forward to reading your comments. I promise y’all that I will respond as quickly as I can, I am getting better at balancing work and life again! Enjoy the rest of what is left of your weekend. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of ❤ love, comfort and many positive vibes!
