Three Important Traits

I think three of the most important traits we “should” have as good human beings go hand in hand. The traits I think are the most important and required in life are truth, honesty, and loyalty. Of course, this is just my opinion, but I do believe you cannot have one of these traits without the others because they are firmly linked together. I know it seems obvious what these traits mean, but I am going to explain what each of them means. I am also aware that it seems that truth and honesty are the same, but there is a difference.

What does truth mean to you? For me, truth means saying what is a fact beyond a shadow of a doubt. According to the dictionary, truth can mean one of two things. One is that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality. Second, is a fact or belief that is accepted as true. Clearly, truth means speaking only what is real and absolute fact!

When you hear the word honestly, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Honesty to me means being truthful, fair, and loyal. According to the dictionary, honesty means the quality or fact of being honest, truthfulness, sincerity, or frankness with freedom of deceit or fraud. Over the past few years, we have witnessed too many lies from people running the country, which are the ones we “should” be able to truth. No matter who they are, once someone lies and deceives our trust, it can take years if ever to truth the person again. The only thing that can be accomplished with lies is hurt and severe emotional pain.

Without truth and honesty, can someone truly be loyal? What does loyalty mean to you? For me, loyalty is to be supportive, honest, truthful, and to always stand by your morals. It does not matter if you are married, in a relationship, or single, you should always stand by your significant other or family. We do not always need to agree with our partners, but we should always be honorable, faithful, and honest. According to the dictionary, loyalty means strong feelings or allegiance.

Now that the definitions have been explained, do you think you can have one without the others? What makes you feel the way you do about loyalty? As I have already said, I do not think you can have one of these traits without having the others. If someone is not truthful and honest, how can they be loyal? If we have morals, that we believe in strongly, we are probably honest, truthful, and loyal, but everyone is different, therefore their morals are unique.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am looking forward to reading your comments and your views on these traits. We all have the right to our own opinions, and I think it is important to try understanding other people’s views. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

World of Hurt

I think we can all agree the past several years dealing with COVID fears has not been easy. The COVID pandemic put our lives on hiatus. All the things we wanted to do and took for granted were halted. It was not easy to be stuck at home all the time and only see the same four walls, day in and day out. While COVID has not vanished from existence, many have taken the necessary precautions by getting the vaccine. I still have hope that life can start becoming closer to the normal we once knew, but I do understand things do not always work out the way we want them to.

The truth is, we are only offered one chance at this life, so we should not waste any time on anger and hate. Instead, we should always continue growing, changing, learning, and striving to improve. Each day we encounter numerous challenges and struggles, which even though it is not easy to see in the moment, make us stronger and more courageous. No matter how difficult the challenges we face seem, if we can think of them as opportunities, they might get easier.

We have been dealing with stress and loneliness due to COVID for so long, that I can hardly remember what life used to be like. I cannot remember what we used to do on weekends or vacations. The only way I can view weekends now is time I do not have to work. It seems like for years we have had nothing to look forward to or be excited about.

Although I know cases and deaths from COVID have decreased, there are still lingering fears in my mind that I cannot erase. Besides COVID, other terrible things are occurring too often. I understand the United States will not take away the people’s right to guns, but something needs to change. We should not have to fear going to a grocery store, hospital, mall, movie theater, out to dinner, or children going to school. Gun control may help save lives or at least lessen the chance of an unstable person being able to purchase a gun. Assault rifles and semi-automatic guns are not meant to be in the hands of ordinary people and should only be used during war times. Schools, stores, restaurants, and hospitals are not acts of war.

Mental health has been a serious issue for decades, but it does not seem like anyone is trying to make changes. Those that suffer in silence and alone need to feel comfortable asking for help, without fear of ridicule, judgment, and not having the ability to afford help. There are too many people battling addictions, which can lead to depression and possibly death. Why should people be forced to suffer without any viable help? The United States is one of the wealthiest countries in the world, but the citizens cannot afford help, healthcare, or medications. That just does not seem right to me!

Unfortunately, we continue to live in a world of fears. We should all try to understand others and help when we can. Of course, we need to try putting our needs first because if we are not well, we will not be able to help anyone else. Putting our needs first is not selfish, which I do tend to have a hard time understanding because has always been in my nature to put other’s needs ahead of my own. This is something I am working on and know I will succeed with someday.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and remaining safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

Well, it is Monday again. Most of us probably are not ready for it, but they do happen every week and we manage. I am not as disappointed today because I only have a few days until I meet James Patterson. I do not think anything could ruin this week for me, well unless the meet and greet is canceled. How was your weekend? I hope you enjoyed every minute of it and you were able to rest and do what makes you happy. I did not do much of anything because I was battling a headache the majority of the weekend, but I did finish one of the books I wanted to.

Considering Mondays are often one of the most dreaded days, we all must find a way to be motivated and stay motivated throughout the week. Although it sometimes feels easier to give up and throw in the towel, we will discover many more amazing opportunities if we keep trying. Yes, sometimes pain can be a factor and that can make us want to stop trying, but pushing forward and continuing to try will make life much more fulfilling! We never will know what we are capable of if we do not try!

I do not think I will ever understand why the weekends go by so fast. It still feels like Friday afternoon and I am ready for the weekend to begin. I know my cats hate when the weekend ends because then they have to wait all day until they can fight over or share my lap, which they do love. For some reason, yesterday I broke down in tears thinking about our sweet cat Chloe that passed away. It is surprising how quickly and unexpectedly the memories come back. It always hits me like a ton of bricks. Please do not get me wrong, I love our three cats, but I would give anything to have Chloe back in our lives! She was a sweet little angel.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I shared and the quote offered you a little motivation. I am counting down the days until Friday and it will never get here soon enough. This might sound crazy, but I even have an outfit picked out to meet James Patterson in. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Friday Eve thoughts

Happy Friday Eve. Even though it was a short week, it still felt long and grueling week. Honestly, it was not all bad because I am being trained on a different process at work and the trainer is great. I have not met many people that had a similar personality to mine, and I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing. It is unusual because while I will yell at my computer and use some incredibly colorful language towards the computer, and I will even say that it has a bad attitude problem, most people think that is ludicrous, the trainer does the same😊! We both enjoy adding humor to our day because it makes the day slightly happier and more interesting.

Life can be challenging, and we face many hardships throughout our lives. Everyone deals with painful times differently, but we all need someone to talk to and lean on when we struggle with various situations. A friend of mine that I have worked with at two different companies previously remain close over the years. We have talked about everything and anything during the years we have known each other. Last Sunday, she found that her grandmother was being moved into a hospice center, which was obviously extremely painful☹.

After learning that her grandmother would be leaving this world soon, she immediately made plans to go visit her. Unfortunately, her grandmother did pass away a few days after being moved to hospice. I told my friend that she could call me anytime she needed someone to talk to and that I would do anything I possibly could for her. The funeral is Friday and I know that will be one of the hardest days she will go through because I remember when my grandfather passed away. My friend has said the same thing I did when I lost my grandfather, she feels numb and like she lost a HUGE part of her heart and soul. I think the reason learning about my friend losing her grandmother affected me so profoundly is because I remember that pain like it was yesterday and it has been almost 10 years since losing my grandfather.

Losing someone we love is never easy. It is important to be supportive and understanding when we know someone is experiencing such a heartbreaking situation. Of course, we cannot make the pain disappear, but we can listen and be empathic. Sadly, we have all lost someone we loved, so we know how tragic and agonizing the pain can feel. I am sure we have all heard that saying, “It is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all”. Even though that sounds so clique, it is true.

How has your week been? The news always seems to be hard to watch because there is so much sadness. So many people have been glued to the TV to watch the Johnny Depp vs Amber Heard case. That entire situation has been beyond ridiculous. Of course, I do not know either one of them, but the accusations that were made about Depp were serious. Many people suffer in abusive relationships, so when we watch this on the news with clear lies it is infuriating. Lies and deceit does nothing but destroys lives, but this is something people do commonly. Those who lie as easy as it is for most to breathe make my blood boil, especially reading something so horrendous.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am sure y’all are looking forward to the weekend and hopefully, you will be able to enjoy it safely. I would love to read your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. Although, you do not know my friend who lost her grandmother, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, she needs this currently. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes.

Perception and Assumptions

I hope you were able to enjoy the long weekend and you remained safe! Beginning the week, a day behind always confuses me for some reason. Over the long weekend, I woke up one day thinking I was supposed to be getting up for work because the clock showed 6:30. I am so glad I figured out it was the weekend, and I did not get up to start getting ready. Even though it was a long weekend, I did not sleep in late on any of the days, and think I even got less sleep than I get during the normal workweek. How crazy and frustrating is that😊?

I have always found people’s personalities to be interesting and frustrating. Differences are normally great because if we were all the same, the world would be an incredibly boring place😊. The frustrating part is when perceptions are misconstrued and distorted. This tends to happen when someone does not understand your words or takes it other than the way you intended and does not ask for clarification, or they make assumptions.

Do you remember a game that was played in elementary school when the first person in line says something, like a word or phrase to the next person, and it continues to the last person? By the time the word or phrase gets to the last person, it is often vastly different. It seems this is something common with normal conversation. This might have been fun to play in school, but it causes many problems in adult life. The assumptions people make are ridiculous and not normally the reality of the conversation. 

In my mind, I am open and honest when talking to everyone. It is upsetting when you hear that something negative was said about your personality and demeanor, especially when it does not make sense. Gossip and backstabbing are common in high school, but not in adulthood or at least it should not be. Unfortunately, so many people are caught up in their lives, and how they are perceived and want to pretend they never do anything that is not upstanding and or kind. It appears to be common for many people to refuse to admit when they are wrong and will fight tooth and nail to prove their point, which is over invalid.

The bottom line is our words are hurtful and they cannot be erased or forgotten. It is crucial that we use our words wisely and with kindness, but also be understanding and considerate. We need to never forget that everything we say to another person will be how we are remembered for years to come and know that life is not promised and can end anytime.

How do you handle situations when your feelings get hurt? What do you do when there are misunderstandings constantly? It is not a good feeling when you feel like you are walking on eggshells when talking to certain people! 

Thank you for visiting my site today. I look forward to reading your comments and the ways you handle certain situations. I hope you have a great and stress-free day! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Gun Violence & Mental Health

Unfortunately, there are so many tragedies happening in the United States, that many people have become desensitized. Sadly, in the five months of 2022, there have already been 213 mass shootings. As a result of the incredibly high number of mass shootings, 17,000 people, and 650 of this number were innocent children had their lives cut short. For an incident to be considered a mass shooting, four or more people are shot, injured, or killed, but these are typically a larger number of people.

On Tuesday, May 24th, a mass shooting took place at an elementary school in Texas. Nineteen innocent children and two adult teachers were killed. Tuesday was marked the deadliest school shooting in Texas history. According to reports from CNN, the gunman performed this heinous act alone. Before the 18-year-old high school dropout went to the elementary school, he shot his grandmother, allegedly texted a 15-year-old girl in Germany about his plans for the elementary school, and then took his grandmother’s truck to head to the school to carry out his deranged plans.

Gun violence is not something new in the United States but has been a problem for decades. In 1987, after a British gunman killed 16 people, the country banned semiautomatic weapons, which was the weapon that was used. After a school shooting in 1996, the country proceeded in the same manner and banned most handguns. At this time and after several bans, the country has one of the lowest gun-related deaths in the developed world.

Australia acted with gun-related violence and deaths after a massacre in 1996. The country prompted a mandatory gun buyback. It has been estimated as many as one million firearms were melted down making them useless and not deadly. The occurrence of mass shootings has decreased from once every 18 months to once every 26 years.

Our Canadian neighbors have also taken action against gun violence. Following a mass shooting 33 years ago in 1989, Canada tightened their gun laws. Other countries such as Germany in 2002, New Zealand in 2019, and Norway last year also tightened their gun laws.

With the levels of gun violence and innocent lives lost in the United States, something needs to change. Too many are caught up in their 2nd amendment right to see the bigger and more critical issues. Everyone wants their right to bear arms upheld, but what about the innocent people who lost their life’s right to a safe life?

I do realize that mental health in the United States is neglected, but something can be done about gun laws. We can hardly watch the news without hearing about shooting somewhere. There are innocent lives lost and families affected daily. Mental health and gun laws need to be narrowed and changed immediately. In the United States, we must worry about children going to school, going to the grocery store, movie theater, or anywhere outside the safety of our homes! Are we going to wait to fight for change until it hits close to home and someone we love is killed by a mentally unstable gunman?

It has taken me several days to be able to put this post out because it is extremely emotional. I could not read through the different news reports about this because it kept bring tears to my eye. I cannot imagine what the families that lost children and loved ones are going through. There is no logical reason for the recent issues that took place in Texas, and most are left to ask, was this man mentally ill? If this 18-year-old had gotten the help needed, would the 21 people killed still be alive? The 18-year-old gun man’s family was in shock he would shoot the grandmother he loved in the face or kill 19 innocent children and 2 teachers. The information I found was based on CNN who spoke to the mother of the disturbed 18-year-old.

Regardless of anyone’s views on what should happen with gun control, we can all probably agree that the mental health of everyone needs to be addressed. Many people feel ashamed of any mental instabilities they may have and will cause them to avoid getting the help needed out of fear of rejection and negative judgments. No one in this world is perfect and sometimes we may need help. Please if you know anyone that is struggling, help them find a professional that can help them get adequate help. I understand how difficult it can be to admit needing help, but the following website offers different types of help https://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/find-help.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I know how hard it is to read what I shared, but it is important to know what is going on in the country. Yes, it is depressing and tragic, but there is help. Even if we know someone that is struggling, we can try listening to the person, but when it is more urgent than anything you can do and it is too crucial to wait, you can call 911. Feel free to leave comments and I will respond as soon as I am able to. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. This was established in 1949 to strengthen an understanding of the importance of mental well-being. It is time to recognize and praise recovery from mental illness for those inflicted with mental illness. Prevention and treatments can work for people. It is an effective way to help people recover from mental disorders and to live a full, and productive life. Unfortunately, in 2022 there is still a negative stigma surrounding mental illness. People are thought to be crazy, incompetent, or dangerous. This is a false understanding of mental illness, which this month is meant to alleviate and correct.

Over the past two decades, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and others within the US Department of Health and Human Services have collaborated to increase the importance of comprehending the prevention and treatment of mental health issues. There have been effective efforts to raise awareness regarding the significance of mental health and encourage acceptance, support, prevention, and recovery from mental health conditions which include but are not limited to the following:

Congress provided substantial behavioral health workforce investments in 2022, which included $225 million for behavioral health professionals and paraprofessional education.

SAMHSA supports the development of a Behavioral Health Workforce tracker, which is a new database of over 1 million behavioral health providers. This tracker offers users a visual of available behavioral health providers by geography, provider type, and Medicaid acceptance status.

It would be false to say that the United States has not failed to correct the misunderstanding of mental illness and help those suffering for the past several decades, but changes are being implemented now. The current administration in the United States remains dedicated to addressing the behavioral health dilemma people have been faced with and strengthening the mental health and well-being of all Americans. It has been acknowledged mental health challenges intensified drastically due to the COVID pandemic, including substance abuse, youth mental health, and suicide.

In March 2022, President Biden signed the Lorna Breen Health Care Provider Protection Act into law. This act will invest $135 million over 3 years towards improving mental health in healthcare providers, including suicide prevention efforts.

Our mental health refers to our emotional and social well-being. This can impact the way we think, feel, and behave, which can influence how we connect with others, decisions making, tolerate stress, and numerous other aspects of our daily life. We all focus our attention heavily on our physical health, which is important, but our mental health is just as important and often neglected.

Mental health is crucial for everyone. Taking care of ourselves is vital to prevent mental health from declining. Circumstances such as nutrition and gut health, stress, sleep, relationships, trauma, and much more can produce further poor mental health. While our mental health is strong and healthy, we can practice and learn coping skills to ensure we can handle difficult situations when they occur because we know they can happen at any time.

A mental health condition or mental illness is referring to a set of symptoms recognized by the mental health community. Individuals with a mental illness or condition encounter changes in mood, thinking, and or behavior. This can be extreme and unexpected for some. For others, it can mean they are unable to think clearly and avoid friends, family, and enjoyable activities. Unfortunately, some may hear voices that others cannot hear. For someone to be diagnosed, their changes in thinking and emotions must severely harm their ability to do the things they want to do. It does not matter what kind of mental health condition a person endures because the possibility to recover is possible.

There are many contributing factors to mental health problems. It is extremely likely for many people to have a complex combination of factors. Everyone is different, so some may be much more deeply impacted by certain things than another person would be. The following factors can result in a period of poor mental health:

Child abuse, trauma, or neglect.

Social isolation or loneliness.

Experiencing discrimination and stigma, including racism.

Social disadvantage, poverty, or debt.

Bereavement (loss of someone close to you).

Severe or long-term stress.

Living with a long-term health condition.

Unemployment or loss of a job.

Homelessness or poor housing.

Drug and alcohol abuse.

Domestic violence, bullying, or other abuse in adult life.

Significant trauma as an adult, such as military combat, experiencing a serious incident where you feared for your life, or being a victim of a violent crime.

Various physical causes such as a head injury or neurological conditions.

I plan to do a second post about treatments for mental health conditions because I did not want to make this post too long. One important thing to mention is trying to understand and support those with mental health conditions is going to be much more helpful than judging the person. Everyone around the world, whether they have a mental health condition or not deserves kind treatment and understanding. With the negative stigma people with mental illness face currently, they deserve compassion because we never know what will push them too far.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the first part of my Mental Health Awareness post was interesting and provided you with a slightly clearer understanding. Life is hard enough already without judging an innocent person battling with a mental health issue, but we need to try to understand how challenging it must be for them. We might not understand the illness, but chances are it is confusing for them as well. I hope you are enjoying a relaxing and safe weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Thought Filled Sunday

It is a gloomy, but peaceful Sunday. I am not sure why, but I feel chilly and still feel drained from last week. Of course, weekends are “supposed” to be a time to recuperate and prepare for the week ahead, which I tried doing. Unfortunately, I still failed to catch up on the sleep loss from last week. I guess once we are sleep deprived and have missed out on many hours of sleep, we cannot ever get those hours back and we are forced to keep going, no matter how exhausted we feel. I know the end of the weekend is near and another long week is getting closer, but there is still time left for our weekend.

I am going to continue to try doing at least one post each day this week and hope to be successful in doing so. There are a couple of topics I am working on right now and hope to have at least one completed today. One crucial thing I will be sharing information about is the importance of mental health. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I feel this is critical to try to understand this complicated topic. At this time, I only can speak to the fact that the United States has failed miserably in providing care for individuals suffering from mental health issues.

Another topic I will be writing about is the differences between trust and forgiveness. Trust is important and fragile. It can take years to build trust in another person and seconds to break the trust. Once you lose trust in a relationship, there is no guarantee you can trust that person again. If you can work through the lost trust issues and try forming trust again, it takes time and patience. Even when we decide to forgive someone for their wrongdoings and betrayal, that does not mean trust is automatically replenished.

Another topic I would like to write about is the challenges involved in living with a chronic illness without a cure. Sadly, we have genius scientists and doctors around the world, but so many chronic illnesses still do not have a cure. I know this is not 100% true, but in 2022 there seems to be a steady increase in the numbers of illnesses and hardly any headway to curing these illnesses☹.

People should be trying to progress and evolve with the times, but that is not happening. One thing that continues to grow is hatred and mean behavior. When people do not understand the way another person lives, they become scared and decide the way another person is living is wrong and evil. This is a cowardly way to live in the world. It does not matter how another person lives “their” life, as long as they are not causing harm and they are happy, it should not matter or be the business of anyone else!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your weekend has been filled with everything that makes you happy. I have found it can be complicated to find topics to write about that will be intriguing to everyone, but I am trying. Honestly, some things I write about are to help me process issues in my life. I hope you enjoy the last part of your weekend! I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday

I am not sure how because yesterday was a crazy day, but we survived Monday! The first day of the week always seems like torture because it is so busy, but Monday is OVER and I do not think Tuesday should be that bad. It is only my fourth week at my new job and things are going well, but it is SO different than anything I have done before. People are often nice and not as pushy as they were when I worked with mortgages, but they can be somewhat demanding. The people I work with are great and extremely helpful when I ask questions. I guess I cannot ask for better!

As the week continues, we must find ways to remain at peace and not get overly stressed. I think one of the best ways to stay calm and peaceful is to worry only about our progression and not what anyone around us is doing. Too many people enjoy putting others down and criticizing them, but that does not do anything productive. The more we tell others how great they are doing, the more they will try improving and that makes us better in the long run. Simple compliments can go a long way😊!

The people we allow into our lives are meant to be in our life. We might not understand why, but I can guarantee there is a reason and we should be thankful for them. I have said this before and will say it again because it is very true and means a lot to me, people do not come into our lives by accident and there is always a reason. Value those you love, appreciate their love and kindness. Never forget to express how you feel because we never know what tomorrow holds and no one is guaranteed another day in this world.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found deep meaning in everything. I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. This is the second day of our week and I hope your week is going great. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Peaceful Tuesday

Somehow we successfully survived one of the most dreaded days of the week and are entering the second day of the week. We may not live in the same state or even the same country, but we all share the same world. The world we are connected through has been suffering from various challenges, some of which have been ignited from anger, hate, the desire for control, and selfishness. Finding peace during these troubling times can be challenging. We all have certain things that make us feel comfortable and at peace. What helps you to escape the upsetting feelings created in the world? I hope you will share these and to be fair, I will share mine with you as well.

I have always found music to be a wonderful escape from the chaotic issues in life. Music helps me to relax and find calmness in this life. Of course, certain music can alter my mood and bring me to a different type of happiness. I have certain songs I feel I can relate to, which makes me relive periods in my life. These songs help me to see certain situations in a different light. Other songs can make me smile on the worst days. Then there are songs I turn to when I need a good cry and after the tears fall, I feel I am in a better place emotionally.

Since I was a child, I have written my feelings out on paper. This helps me to discover clarity on life and the craziness that occurs. I do not feel pressured or like someone is going to judge my feelings because everything stays between me, the pen, and the paper. I enjoy writing poems when my emotions are torn and heightened for various reasons. Poetry helped me through several struggles when I was a young child and when I lost the man I thought of as a hero, my grandfather.

We are all going to have different ways to find peace. There is no right or wrong way because we are all different and that is okay. Life has a strange way of working itself out and even for the better. It is not important how we find peace, it is more important that we have peace in our lives! I do want to share a quote with y’all because this happens to be something else I enjoy. I love finding different quotes that I think are beautiful and hope you will as well. I thought this quote offered peace and hope you will feel it as well!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoy what I have shared and the quote provided you some peace of mind. This life is short and we should be living it to the fullest. There is no need for hate or causing harm to anyone because we should be showing kindness and love. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
