Let It Go Friday!

downloadHappy Friday y’all! I hope your week went well and you are looking forward to another weekend. There have been many changes to how we spend our weekends, but I do hope your weekend will be full of happiness and relaxation. I know it is a long weekend and many things have reopened, but I still do not have any plans. Maybe I am taking it too far, but I do not feel at all safe out in the public yet. I find it very disrespectful when at a grocery store or gas station and people still do not understand social distancing. 

Our weeks are not always spent doing what we want or even have a passion for. The weeks twenty-years-from-now-you-will-be-more-disappointed-by-the-things-that-you-didnt-do-than-by-the-ones-you-did-domark-twaincan also cause many negative emotions and frustrations, but I do believe letting go of that negative energy before entering the weekend is very beneficial for our physical and mental health. I mean why allow those negative feelings to follow us into a weekend that is supposed to be about us, what we love and enjoy, and our families? I found the quote I am sharing with y’all today encouraging and motivating with letting go of things that do not really matter and I hope it will provide you with something similar. No pressure at all of course, but I would love to read what your thoughts about We are all onethis quote and if it offered some help with letting go of negativity,

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! I do always appreciate your continued support and enjoy the chats we can have. I hope your week was pleasant, you have a stress-free day and a lovely weekend. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Breakthrough the Barriers of Social Distancing

92101563_1597447863745824_3525203181490511669_nIt was not that long ago when simply going to the grocery store did not involve the fear of a new and potentially deadly virus. For the past several months we have been faced with a world-wide pandemic, stay at home orders, businesses closing their doors (hopefully temporarily), job losses, widespread fear for our health, mask, and gloves for protection, social distancing, and many other issues that have caused panic. Truthfully, I can’t even remember the last day I wasn’t terrified to leave the house or when social distancing was not practiced by most people and then getting frustrated when some do not respect the social distancing.

I feel confident saying that while I do understand the reasons behind social distancing, it Screen-Shot-2020-04-01-at-2.23.33-PMhas been very challenging and isolating. Granted, I do have my husband and two cats home with me (24/7), but let’s face it being home all the time with no changes can make anyone get irritable. I do love my husband and cats dearly, but sometimes I need a break.

I have found some ideas for activities that could help heighten our moods and encourage Boost-your-moodmotivation.

  1. Express and stay in touch-

Acts of kindness should always be something we try doing. With all everyone around the world is dealing with today a simple email or handwritten note to someone you know could offer a positive boost to their day. Think about memorable previous bosses or co-workers and send them a note. I know some previous bosses we were glad to be rid of, but I know I have at least one that I still miss and really enjoyed working with her. This person’s name is Mary Close Hall and she really was amazing! Offer to go to the grocery store or pharmacy for an elderly neighbor that struggles with getting out of the house during normal times. While in a store, either for yourself or a neighbor, thank those on the frontline and essential workers for what they are doing for the community.

  1. Stay connected digitally-Resources+2

Today’s technology has had extensive changes over the years. Millions of people around the world already rely heavily on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The social media platforms offer positive ways to stay connected virtually, while we continue to practice social distancing. People from various locations can interact with one another face-to-face, well a better way to say it is screen-to-screen. The possibilities are endless to stay connected safely with family and friends.

  1. Discover your creativeness-

creativenessTasks that are repetitious such as knitting or crocheting can create a meditative state of mind and relaxation in the body and brain. These meditative and relaxed feelings have also been known to decrease worry and negative thoughts. You do not need to have or run out and buy needles, crochet hooks, and of yarn there are many other forms or art that can reduce anxiety and even be uplifting for our moods.

  1. Learn a new language-language-2

While we are stuck at home with very limited interaction with others, we can be getting prepared for future travels. There are numerous apps and YouTube videos to help teach us a foreign language. We can make the most of the times of isolation and be thankful for the time we had to learn something new!

  1. Become Cultured-

WHAT'S_YOUR_LIFE_EXPERIENCES_SCORE-_(2)Now is a great time to explore art institutions and cultural events virtually. Back when things were not so complicated, did you ever think of or find the time to visit a museum virtually? I know that it never crossed my mind to expand my worldly knowledge from my living room, but now we all can try this. Google is a fantastic tool that can act as our tour guide to these exciting new experiences.

  1. Passion Projects-passion-project_4x

Is there anything you have wanted to try, but never found the time to do so? Maybe you want to write a short story, or a book, or learn more about your ancestry. Now is a good time to pursue these projects you have thought about for so long. While we are stuck at home and feeling beginning to feel anxious, diving into a long-term project can offer us a sense of purpose.

  1. Attend a virtual class or event-

physicalMany local attractions and studios are becoming creative and offering options for enjoyable free and digital experiences. I am listing a few free options for you and your family to check out and hope you enjoy them!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday!

169859-Hang-In-There-Its-Almost-FridayHappy Friday eve y’all! I hope your week is going well, you are staying safe, and feeling the best you can! Are you looking forward to the weekend ahead? I am still planning to stay home because where I live continues to have new cases of COVID-19 and I prefer to stay safe and keep my family safe. More than likely, I will clean the house and do laundry because these are the things that keep the weekends going! Of course, it is a holiday weekend as well, which is an even better reason to stay home and away from people that are possibly being careless.

I am trying to keep things on a schedule as normal as I can. Of course, I am still not working because work-from-home jobs are pretty scarce. I definitely think a “Pick-Me-Up” quote will be beneficial to everyone and hope the quote I am sharing will offer this to you! I do think many peoplei-am-not-a-product-of-my-circumstances-i-am-a-product-of-my-decisions prefer to blame their life on whatever circumstances they are dealing with, instead of the decisions made. I believe in taking responsibility for the decisions we make in life. They might not have been the best decisions, but we most certainly learn from everything we go through in life. What is your initial thoughts on this quote and do you agree with what I just said? It is totally fine if you do not agree, but I would love to read what your thoughts were!

downloadThank you so much for visiting my site today! I do always appreciate all your support and encouragement. I think y’all know the past few weeks or so have been a little challenging for me due to things going on in life, but I think y’all know that I am pretty strong and do not let anything keep me down long! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

All we can learn from cats…

Beautiful girl ChloeMy husband and I have had one of our precious cats, Chloe, for almost 15 years. It is so hard to believe our sweet little girl is going to be 15 in June. Chloe has brought us so much happiness, laughter, and love ❤. As a kitten, Chloe would climb the artificial Let you live heretree we had in our apartment. She has always been an indoor cat, so she has never had an opportunity to climb a real tree which is good because I do not think she ever came down from the artificial tree on her own. She has always been a rather small cat and in recent years continues being tiny partially due to having early-stage kidney disease.

After Chloe was an only child for many years and my husband’s grandmother on his father’s side passed away, we took in his late grandmother’s cat ❤. I had always wanted Chloe to have a playmate, so we had two female cats and my poor husband was outnumbered by Sweet Lexiwomen! Unfortunately, we were unsure of his grandmother’s cat’s name but kept calling her “little grey” because she was a sweet little grey cat. We did end up changing her name to Lexi, for her official name. Her name was inspired by the TV show “Grey’s Anatomy”. Lexi was very unique Sisterly Loveand loving in her ways. Chloe and Lexi did not play with each other much but they seemed to have an understanding and were often seen napping close together ❤. Lexi brought us so much joy in the 5 or so years we had her. Sadly, our sweet Lexi had cancer that took her from us way too soon.

The loss of Lexi was heartbreaking for the three of us. It was terribly sad seeing Chloe continue to look for Lexi. We did everything we could to keep her as comfortable as possible by feeding her through a syringe, blankets around the house for her to rest on, and lots of love. The night before Lexi passed away, I was up with her all night. She must losshave cried every hour on the hour and I tried consoling her best I could. I had to work the following day and went to work on no sleep at all. When I called home to check in on her, my husband told me she wasn’t doing well and had shallow breathing. I immediately explained to my boss what was going on and that I had to leave. I called the veterinary while I raced home and explained what was going on and that I had to change the appointment we had scheduled for the next day to put her to sleep within the next hour. It was a rainy day, but I drove as fast as I could to get home. Unfortunately, I did not make it home in time and she was already gone when I walked in the door.

After losing Lexi, I told my husband I could never have another cat because it is too Sleepy Sundanceupsetting when anything happens to them. Funny thing it wasn’t even a year later when my mother-in-law called to tell us about a Himalayan cat that was in a foster home because his owner passed away and he needed a good home. I wasn’t as excited as I should have been because there was no replacing Lexi, but we did go see the orphan cat. My husband and I immediately fell in love ❤ with the sweet and beautiful little boy. It was impossible to not love this cat because even though he was scared, he was so sweet! We ended up going home to talk and think about it but went back the following day to bring him home with us.

Best FriendsWe introduced Chloe and her new brother, Sundance (he came with the name, his previous owner was an artist and had a unique style) slowly. Sundance stayed in our guest room for a few days so the two could get used to the smell of each other through the closed door. Of course, Chloe was used to Lexi, but we did not want Chloe and Sundance to fight. Sundance did come from a home with other cats and took well to Chloe instantly. Anytime Chloe would act irritable and swing her little paw at him, Sundance would surrender and roll over onto his back. Chloe and Sundance are now inseparable ❤. If you see one of them, it is guaranteed the other is close by!Chloe and Sundance

There is so much we can learn from cats. For starters cats, especially our two amazing cats, share such unconditional love ❤. They are completely non-judgmental and never judge someone based on petty things humans form opinions based on. There will never be a cat that will automatically dislike someone based on the color of their skin, national origin, religious beliefs, or sexual preference. I can’t say an animal would not dislike someone based on their sex though. Our sweet Sundance loves ❤ my husband now, but it took time because he seems afraid of all other men.

life-lessons-we-can-learn-from-cats-the-last-krystallosWe can learn to relax more than we do now and even take random naps when we can. I can speak only from our two cats that choose various and sometimes unusual places they find comfortable to rest in. Like my husband, cats are nocturnal creatures. They are very active during the night and can sleep soundly during the daytime hours. I am the direct opposite of my husband and cats, but everything works beautifully for us!

Even though Chloe and Sundance have a ton of toys they love empty boxes. Currently, we have a rather large and long box they enjoy playing hide and seek. The first time I witnessed their game Chloe’s attention was fixated on a small opening and then proceeded to bat at it, then Sundance camepurring flying out. Being able to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer us is a wonderful thing we can learn from cats!

Beginning almost immediately, kittens do not require to be taught self-love ❤ because they already completely and fully love themselves. In many ways kittens are similar to human children, they both love what they find fun and gives them positive feelings. Children and kittens can be incredibly tenacious and slightly demanding (unless they are my very demanding cats!) until they get what they want. With their incessant determination and persistence, Chloe and Sundance would be brilliant salesmen!

self loveI think everyone could learn about self-love ❤ from cats. The love a cat has for themselves is a lifetime devotion they are always true to. If you have ever been around a cat, even for only 10 minutes, you have witnessed how much pride they take in grooming and bathing themselves. Our older cat, Chloe, cleans and grooms herself many times throughout the day. Sundance, our younger cat not only keeps himself nice and clean but also enjoys bathing Chloe, which she tolerates for a little while until she has had enough. She does tell him the first few times to stop in a nice kitty way, but if he doesn’t stop she hits multiple times and he runs off.

Cats tend to live a free and candid life. They can go from sleeping to playing in less than5747-Robert-A-Heinlein-Quote-Women-and-cats-will-do-as-they-please-and 10 seconds. Cats do not play out their days and respond in a way that feels right at any given time, which can range anywhere from exploring the unknown to attacking the first toy they see and anything in between.

My husband and I treat our two cats very well and we consider them part of our family. We do not and will not have human children, but we do love and treat our cats as our children ❤. Our cats are very spoiled and are never left without anything they want or need. Both of our cats have health conditions, as I said earlier Chloe has early-stage kidney disease and Sundance has asthma. I never knew that animals can adfc05c92641e557d33a2036bd825356pretty much get anything humans can. Between special kidney food for Chloe and the medications for Sundance, they are not cheap. Chloe and Sundance amaze me every day because I can see the love ❤ in their eyes when they look at me or my husband. Anyone that says cats do not hold a grudge has obviously never met Chloe because if I ever do something, either unintentional or intentionally it could be a few hours later, but she will get her downloadrevenge.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed the information provided and of course the fabulous pictures of my two cats! They loved helping me write this post, but they would like to take full credit for every word! I would love to know what you thought about what we can learn from a cat and promise to respond as quickly as I can.

Motivational Monday

Monday-you-can-handleHappy Monday and welcome to a new week! I hope y’all had a lovely weekend and you remained safe! There seems to always be things our minds focus in on, but often what we are focusing on isn’t all that important. I know many states have opened or reopened again, but even if those in charge think all is well and safe, it isn’t yet. When the number of new Coronavirus cases are continuing to increase, we all need to pay attention, wear a mask, wear gloves, wash your92566032_148356680050649_3264718566094956429_n hands many times daily, and continue practicing social distancing. It is far better to be the only one still doing all of this, no matter how uncomfortable it is rather than basically playing Russian Roulette with your life. 

As we start a new week, some of us are either working from home or unemployed at the moment or having to go back into an office that may or may not be safe. Honestly, I am still in the process of finding a work from home job, but thankfully I do not have to rush life is likeback into the workforce because of my husband’s work from home job! Whether we are staying safely at home or going to work again, we all need a little motivation to start our week off on the right foot. I do hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will serve as a great motivator! 

How was your weekend and are you ready to tackle with week ahead? I honestly didn’t do much over the weekend and even waited for early this morning to go grocery shopping. I have discovered going to the grocery store early in the morning while people are either at work or sleeping (which I would rather be doing) is much easier because it isn’t as busywe are in this together as it would have been over the weekend. I think for the remainder of the day I will focus on reading, writing, and maybe even cleaning the house! 

Thank y’all for visiting my site downloadtoday! I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and hope it starts your week off great and your week continues to get better each day! I would love to read what your thoughts are on the quote and promise to respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday

Let It Go Friday ButterflyHappy Friday y’all!! I hope you had a great week and you are feeling well. Are you ready for your weekend to start? Do you have any plans for the weekend? I do know many states have opened, but please continue to what is necessary to stay safe. It is clear that some people within the government are not taking COVID-19 as seriously as they should, but I do hope y’all will92566032_148356680050649_3264718566094956429_n continue social distancing, face masks, hand washing multiple times daily, and staying home if you are feeling ill. If those in charge do not care about the lives of others, please do the opposite of all of them!

The quote I am sharing with y’all today holds much truth that we should all acknowledge. There are many times during our lives when another person will say something that has insulted us, hurt our feelings, and or 4da244af3353fa55a28d0eab95206023disappointed us. While whatever was said or done did cause us emotional pain, is anyone capable of doing such things worth our time and energy? My answer will pretty much always be NO! There just comes a time in life when we need to let of upsetting things and or people go. The truth is somethings are not worth our precious time. With that said, unfortunately there are even more people that are not worth our precious time and energy. Once we let go of those negative thoughts and people our lives might drastically improve!

Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I would love to know what your thoughts positive-energy-feat-740x494are regarding the quote I shared with y’all today. I truly value your thoughts and I do promise to respond to any comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have a wonderful day and a beautiful weekend.

All one comment….

think-before-speakingI find it amazing how a person can make what to them might be a simple comment, but the person hearing the words perceives it as one of the most remarkable compliments they have heard in a while. Today, I was messaging back and forth with my father. Indeed, my father and I do not talk much, but we have been messaging each other more often lately. Anyways, the words I read made me cry and not tears of sadness, but tears of pure joy. My father told me I get my temper, sense of humor (which at times might more of a sick sense of humor), my caring heart, and love for writing from my late grandfather, Poppy.

I think I have made it perfectly clear before that I completely and totally idolized my tribute-2Poppy. He was a man with a heart and saw everyone equally. I don’t think this man knew hate of any kind. I think it is safe to say that in my eyes he could do NO wrong and pretty much hung the moon and stars.

All these years later, I can still remember being in the car with him and listening to him sing. There was a song that I loved hearing him sing. Of course, that song isn’t the same type of music I listen to normally, but it serves as a nice reminder of him. The song is, “Seven Spanish Angels”, by Ray Charles and Willie Nelson. Now days if I hear this song, within the first two seconds I am in tears because I still can hear my Poppy singing the song.

funeral-poems-for-grandpa-4-1024x555Just knowing that some of who I am today is a result of someone I still love so much and idolize means more than words can ever begin to describe. I feel confident saying that anyone privileged enough to know my Poppy, would agree with me when I say he was one of the most caring, gracious, humble, generous, charismatic, thoughtful, dedicated, amazing, and loving people that has ever walked this earth. I know there are several other great ways to describe my Poppy, but I do not believe there is enough paper in the world to cover all the ways.

I will never forget the day, September 9, 2013, when I received the call from my uncle. poppys-graveThrough no fault of his own, until this say he was my favorite uncle, called to tell me that my Poppy had passed away. For a moment, all the air was completely sucked out of me. People were walking past me happily talking on their cellphone as if nothing had changed and their world was still spinning fine, when mine had just come to an incredibly abrupt stop. Through heartbreak and tears I kindly asked if anyone had notified my father yet. When he said my father was not contacted yet, I offered to be the one to call him.

At this point, it has been a little while Alyssa's HTC One X 2574since I had spoken to my father because of hurt and anger for missing my wedding. It was not ever going to be an easy conversation, but I wanted him to hear the devastating news from someone kind and emotional, not from social media. I did not think the loss of someone as special as my Poppy should ever hit social media first. I don’t know if this was with the help of the newest angel in Heaven or not, but while I was telling my father what happened he was also seeing it on Facebook. The picture above is many years old of my Poppy, father, and myself.

Poppy PicMy beloved, strong, courageous, compassionate, and sarcastic Poppy fought against prostate cancer for too many months for a man as wonderful as him, but he did so with determination. During his battle he never once uttered the words, “Why me?”, instead he was thankful for his family, friends, other golf enthusiasts and colleagues at Country Club he spent decades at. This was a man that only counted his blessings in life and viewed the difficult times as a challenge, not a failure.

Another comment my father made today was anytime I question myself, all I needed to do is look towards my husband and know he loves ❤ me more than anyone else could. I know he said this was because I was uncertain about myself because I know I am sometimes not easy to deal with. The reason I can be difficult is because I never give up on something I believe strongly in. I will argue my point endlessly and never once change my mind. I know this can be frustrating for some people, but anyone that really knows, understands, and loves me, fully knows how to deal with my incredibly stubborn ways. I also tend to become overly passionate when I feel someone has been mistreated and will not give up until the person is treated better and receives a proper apology that they accept. I guess maybe that is another trait I get 337811-I-Miss-Your-Everythingfrom my Poppy! 

The hard truth is, I never got the chance to say, “Good bye or see you later” to my Poppy ❤. I guess not many people ever do get that kind of chance and there is never a good time to lose someone you care so deeply for, but it sadly happens. I am not even sure my Poppy ❤ knows how much I love him or how much I treasured him. To this day I still look up to him and hope that I am making him proud of me. During the difficult and painful times in my life, I still talk to him and must believe he is watching over me. Shortly after he passed away and I was back at work, I would sit outside for lunch and I swear the same butterfly flew around me each day. I think that butterfly was my dear sweet Poppy ❤ letting me know he was okay and I would be as well. These days anytime I am having a hard time in life and see a butterfly, I think it is my Poppy checking on me. He is always in my heart, mind, and soul silently reminding me he will always be by my side.tribute-1

This post was heavily influenced by the comments my father ❤ made to me today. I thought it was good enough to share the overwhelming feelings I had and wanted to know if anything like this has happened to you. Sometimes, people can say one small thing to you during hard times and it can make an enormous difference. I guess this is why I have said several times before everything we say and do can affect another person in ways we would never have thought of. Sometimes, words that seem insignificant are the words that mean everything to someone else.

largeI would really love ❤ to be able to read of a time you have experienced something like this. Any small words you heard or read that made you smile and actually made your day! I also want to thank you for visiting my site today and reading this very emotional post. I honestly did not make it until the end without many tears. I hope your week is going well and you are feeling the best you possibly can. Whatever you do for the rest of the week, please do all you can to stay safe. This virus has not let up yet and can still be very dangerous. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Best-Happy-Mothers-Day-Quotes-1Today is a day I would like to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to the woman who raised me. The woman that always believed in me and provided me, endless love, no matter what was going on. Yes, we did not always agree on things, but we always managed to find a way to meet somewhere in the middle. I have always been a person that was strong and very stubborn, but my mother understands this about me. She knows that I will never change my mind about something I feel strongly about. She understands that I will always be understanding and stand up for anyone I believed needed the extra support. Our life was never typical or normal by any means, but I am the strong person I am because of this life and for this, I thank my mother!mother in law

I would also like to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to my mother in-law! I have heard so many people that do not get along with their mother- in-law, but could never understand this. I was lucky enough to not only marry an amazing man but a man that had an incredible mother and family. I have always got along very well with my mother-in-law and she has always shared nothing but love and kindness!

I genuinely feel honored to have the love of two amazing and strong women. My mother is the woman that raised me to be strong and caring. She has known my strengths and weaknesses but continued to love me through it all.  My mother-in-law accepted me into her family as her daughter-in-law. She has trusted me to be her son’s wife and helped us when we needed mothers-day-meaning-of-motherit. I am thankful for the love I have from both of these incredible women! I would also like to send my love ❤ to both of these amazing and loving women!

I hope every mother in the world has a fantastic day and your children know how incredible you are! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Interesting Individuality

Be differentWe are all extraordinary, rare, and complex puzzles made up of personality, experiences, comprehension, and emotions. Each person develops their viewpoints and beliefs system, which are mostly powered by their personal experiences in their life. No matter what choices we have made in life or which paths we choose to take along the way, all journeys can leave bruises that will help shape the person we have become.

We do not necessarily end up destined to a specific outcome. Every one of our qualities that make us who we are as an intriguing individual can be sharpened, refined, and increase growth as we continue on our life’s travels.different

What are the things about you that set you apart from anyone else? How many people have you met during your life to this point that has similar personality traits as yours? How many people have you come across that were polar opposite to yourself? A difference among everyone creates distinctiveness that can be interesting instead of monotonous and mundane. Opportunities of being exposed to the way other’s viewpoints and beliefs were initiated and how they affect that person’s daily existence.

Be uniqueWe all have characteristics and qualities that make us exceptional and fascinating. Numerous things will set us apart from anyone else we meet during our lives. I am going to describe 10 things that make us remarkably rare.

  1. Individual Personality-

Our personalities are a mixture of characteristics, attributes, and patterns influencingpersonality our behaviors, thoughts, motivations, and emotions. It steers individuals to continuously think, feel, and behave in particular ways.

Each positive and negative experience, all of our successes and weaknesses provide us with the wisdom that guides us through life. There is no one else that will respond the same way. Our perceptions and gained knowledge is distinct to only us and our choices.

  1. Individual Attitude-

Individuals attituteEach person’s attitudes are created by their personal thoughts. Attitudes dominate the ways we distinguish life and the behaviors of those we are surrounded by. Whether it be a positive or negative, attitudes can be very infectious and influential. Unfortunately, negative attitudes have a way of limiting what can be accomplished in life. Those that maintain a positive attitude can be successful and will also limit their time with others that have a neutral or negative attitude. Honestly, people with a constant negative attitude are mental draining to anyone they are around.

  1. Individual Experiences-

Without a doubt, all of our past and future experiences will influence and define our experiencesdistinct character. All of our experiences assist us in the ways we interact with others. It is common when someone goes through a negative experience in life to feel distressed, uptight, hostile, and or defensive when in hurtful circumstances and want to avoid the same issues occurring again. Those that try searching for positive experiences in order to gain a clearer understanding of the world, the other people in the world, and ways to discover a happy and fulfilled life are creating positive experiences. We never have to remain a prisoner by any negative experiences, but can gain additional wisdom from them.

  1. Individual Habits-

habitsHabits are practices, actions, and or behaviors we complete instinctively, allowing us to accomplish vital tasks such as brushing our teeth, taking a shower, and getting dressed for the day. We may do these simple good habits daily and not ever put much thought into them. Of course, there are bad habits some might do daily, such as eating unhealthy foods and not exercising which can make you feel constantly fatigued. Everyone can establish new habits to try improving their mental health and well-being, such as reading or meditating.

  1. Individuals Creativity-Creative Creativity Innovation Design Vision Concept

Creativity is an amazing way to express one’s self. There are various ways of creativeness ranging from painting, drawing, dancing, singing, writing, building, gardening landscapes, and anything else showing your unique creative side. Everyone from all walks of life has a form of creativity and there are no limits to the beauty within our creative visions.

  1. Individual Perspectives-

No one has experienced life the exact same way you have. No one perceives life the same way you do. The knowledge we gain during our life will never be the same to anyone else you talk to. No one else’s your perspectiveperceptions in life are right or wrong because all way of understanding is simply based on each individual.

  1. Individuals Taste-

There can be some similarities in taste among others we know. Our taste in foods, drinks, people we have relationships with, etc influence our lives. Each person’s tastes are mainly as aspect of our personalities. For instance, my husband and I both like pizza, but he like shrimp and I do not like any kind of shrimp at all.

  1. Individual Goals-goals

Each person’s goals influence the way they spend their time, energy, and efforts. Everyone puts time and energy into what they personally want out of life and how they want to be able to give back to the world. No one else has the exact same short, medium, or long-term goals as you do. These goals are what provide individuals with guidance, ambitions, and initiative in life.

  1. Individual’s Hobbies-

HOBBIES Activity Amusement Freetime InterestThe question regarding our hobbies is a common ice-breaker when meeting new people. Our hobbies do not necessarily define us as a person, but how we spend our time does let someone else know the kind of person we are and what provides us with happiness.

  1. Individual’s Passion-

Our passions offer us direction towards the goals we have. When we understand our passions they can show us a clear path that will lead by our values and perceptions of the world.passions

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

images (2)Happy Friday Eve y’all! I hope your week has been lovely and very safe! Times are still a bit of a struggle and so areas have reopened. This is of course only my opinion, but it does not matter if everything is open as it was before the pandemic, it is still best to follow the same to follow the same protocols. Staying 6 feet away from others and also wear a mask and gloves. It really is better safe than sorry! I do not think any of the states are truly ready to reopen because it is still too dangerous. If everyone could find more value in the lives of others and less value in money, everyone would be able to stay safe and alive!
