Happy Friday! I hope you have had a wonderful week! Like always, this week has felt long, but again, the weeks seem to continue getting longer. On Wednesday, I had my normal three-month follow-up appointment with the pain management doctor, which like always, went well. The only part of these appointments I always dread is the drive because it is about an hour and a half away from my house, and I have to drive on the world’s worst Interstate. There has been road construction on this Interstate for years, and I do not think it is going to end or there will be any progress. Considering my love for animals, it is always so heartbreaking to see deer on the side of the road, that I have to tell myself are just sleeping, even though I know that is not the case.

Today is the day that I have to submit my article for the writing competition. I have had a difficult time with this because I lack confidence in my abilities. Confidence is something I have struggled with my entire life, but I am trying to move past this and take a chance on myself. It was hard for me years ago, when I started my blog, but I have enjoyed it so much and am glad I did not miss this opportunity. I have had a few people read my article to make sure it flowed well and did not sound terrible, but I am still worried the article is garbage. Of course, I am trying to tell myself that I will never know unless I try, and if I do not try, I will always wonder what would have happened.

I have always believed that Friday is the perfect day to let go of any negative emotions the week may have caused. Our weekends are so short, and we should be able to enjoy them as much as we can, so why hold onto any negativity caused by the workweek? I hope you will find the quote that I am sharing helpful to let go and just enjoy your weekend! We never have to ignore a negative situation, but it is important to accept things for what they are and keep living life! The good news is now, the week is over, and there is no need to worry about anything that happened during the week. Have you ever wondered why the weeks cause so much stress, that many have a hard time letting go of?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I am looking forward to reading your comments. I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and that you do something that brings you joy. Hopefully, I will be able to sleep in a little over the weekend and work on a few posts regarding Mental Health Awareness Month. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa


Motivational Monday

Hello, and welcome back to Monday! How was your weekend? Of course, it was far too short, but let’s hope that this is going to be a good week. Unfortunately, I am going to be working longer hours this week due to a doctor’s appointment I have on Wednesday afternoon, so I will have to leave work a little early. I love my job, but working longer hours is going to be exhausting. Today, one of my co-workers will be out and she is the one I work closely with, so I am sure it is going to be a super busy day, which will make the day go by faster, or at least I hope it will!

Today is the beginning of a brand new week, and we will hopefully, be presented with many new opportunities. I know that it is never easy to let go of the weekend, but it is something we do not have a choice. With that said, I always believe we should start the week with motivation and in the best mindset! I hope the quote that I am sharing with you will provide you with motivation, and help you through the first, and most challenging day of the week. I think kindness and positive energy are often overlooked, and so many make little effort to even try. I also believe that it takes more energy to be negative, plus it is exhausting!

I mentioned before about the writing competition that I have questioned participating in, but the deadline for this competition is Friday. I have the article completed, but I am still unsure if it is good enough or if the judges will just laugh at my efforts. I am not sure why, but I do second-guess my abilities. I tend to focus more on what I think my weaknesses are and overlook what my strengths are. One thing is for sure, I lack confidence in my abilities. I do not know how to change this, so I would appreciate any advice you may have regarding this.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you had a lovely weekend and you have a wonderful day. I am looking forward to reading your comments, and I will respond as quickly as I can. It is the beginning of the week, so there are several days before the weekend will return, just remember, go easy on yourself and try to not push yourself too hard. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes! 

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday

How is it already Monday again? Does it ever feel like the “weekend” was nothing more than a dream or a wish? It always seems like the weekend goes by way too fast. I think it would be amazing if the workweek was four days, and every weekend was three days😊! Even if this was the way things went, the weekends would NEVER be long enough. How was your weekend? I did not do much of anything, but I was able to sleep in a little on Sunday, which was a HUGE difference for me. Normally, I am awake every day by 7:15 AM, and yesterday I did not get up until a little after 8:00!

We should always try to begin our week with a positive and motivated mindset. Yes, I do understand it is not easy, but it is better than starting a new week with a negative mindset because then the entire week would be negative. Even though it is not easy to say goodbye to the weekend and get back into the normal workweek, how do you do this? Of course, we do not have a choice, but we can decide how we will proceed with the week. Is there anything you are looking forward to this week? I just try to have hope for a good week and that my workweek will be and stay busy. I have my normal one on one meeting with my supervisor tomorrow, but as crazy as this sounds, I enjoy meeting with my supervisor!

I mentioned in another post that I was thinking about doing another writing competition. The due date for this competition is not until May, and I already have it mostly completed. The only problem I am having with this is, I do not ever feel like my writing is good enough. Yes, I know I am the only one that can change this, but I do not know where to begin with building confidence in myself or my abilities. How do you build confidence in yourself? Unfortunately, this is something I have not been able to learn.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and I hope your week goes well. Even if Monday does not go great, each day afterward gets better until we make it back to the weekend. I am looking forward to your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
