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!

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!

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!

Time For A Change!

no accidents all is meant to beChange is a wild mixture that can be both exhilarating and nerve-wrecking all at the same time! Change gives us the ability for amazing new opportunities, but sometimes it seems very risky or maybe that is just how my brain works. I know the best way to handle change or changes is to take things one step at a time and not over do it by trying to do all that needs to be done at once. I am a FIRM believer that everything happens for a reason and when it was meant to! Sometimes I also think there isn’t such a thing as something happening or meeting someone by accident!

With moving to a new city in a different state and starting a new job, there seems to be aChange lot to juggle right now in life. The funny thing is, before I went into my interview I saw a beautiful butterfly flying around my car! Of course I thought the butterfly was a sign that I was meant to get the job I really wanted and I DID!!

Now, packing can be a fun at times because you can actually throw away or donate things that you don’t use anymore, this gets rid of unnecessary clutter. I think it is best to donate items not in use instead of throwing them away because those items might be very useful to someone else. You have probably heard that saying, “One man’s junk is another’s treasure.”? Even with that said, it can still take a lot of energy that I seem to be losing change-quotes-5rapidly. I tend to feel overwhelmed because I have the need to do everything myself and hate asking for any help, but I am learning slowly to ask for help more!

I am sure y’all understand how stressful moving and starting a new job can be! In your lifetime, when you have moved, how did you manage to handle it without having a nervous-breakdown? I have always been a bit of a walking/talking stress case, but I am trying to handle it better. Of course I do not want to get myself too stressed out and cause myself to have a relapse! Any tips you might have I would love to hear! I always appreciate all of your great advice and to read how you handle similar situations! 

70502da7ecfb161bf5ee8a42face4478-1050x1050My last day at my current job is this Friday!! I am nervous and excited about this. I have been with my company for over three years and even though I am more than ready for a change, it is the change that is a little scary! I will be starting my adventure with my new job on September 28th and I am very excited about this position! I think my new job is the perfect fit for my personality and the hours are far beyond fabulous!

With moving and packing, I might not be making posts as I typically would. Please forgive me if I fail to respond in a timely manner, but I will still try! I hope y’all are having a great week and feeling the best you can! Please remember that no matter what I am going through in life, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!
