Positive thoughts for Monday!

Monday 1Good evening Y’all! I hope you had a great start to the week! Monday is never the most exciting day of the week, but they keep coming no matter if we are ready or not! I try to view Monday as a fresh start to a new week that holds many new opportunities. Any goals that may not have been accomplished last week, we can try again this week! I believe in never giving up on something we truly want! It is important to set goals, but also not stress much about them as that is not healthy. What ever is not accomplished today, try again tomorrow!

I strongly believe in staying positive as much as possible. A negative frame of mind will never help us achieve anything we strive towards. If we approach everything in life with an optimistic mind, we can conquer anything and everything we dream of. When you think about what your goals are for this week, what are they? These goals do not need to be anything huge, they can be as little as wanting to get a manicure and pedicure, which is what my minor goal for the week is! You might be the type of person that is always taking care of everyone else, but tend to neglect the simple pleasures in life you enjoy. Have you ever wondered why do 1-new-monday-new-week-new-goalswe do that? It is extremely important to take care of ourselves or we will never be well enough to do all the other things we do in life. 

We always hear how short life is, but sometimes it feels very long! It is so important to do the things that bring us joy and a lot of happiness. Have you ever really thought about what brings you the most happiness in life? I think we should all set a simple goal for ourselves this week and that is to do something that makes us truly happy! There is SO much negativity every time you turn on the news, so lets pretend for a moment it is not happening. Let’s not worry about all the bad that is going on and all the bad that could happen and just think happy thoughts! This is what I call my little bubble! 

Thank y’all for visiting my site today and I am looking forward to reading your comments. I always respond to all comments just as quickly as I can! I love the communications we all have! I hope y’all have a great and relaxing evening! I am always sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

The Wolf You Feed

the-wolf-you-feed-3-2015-blog (1)Good evening Y’all! I hope your week is going well so far! Y’all already know that I strongly believe that positive thoughts will provide positive times into our lives. I also believe that it takes a lot more energy to hold onto negative thoughts! How do you feel about that? Do you agree or disagree?

I know everyone has probably already seen this before”The Wolf You Feed”, but I find this extremely powerful. When you read this, what does it mean to you or does it mean anything at all? I know sometimes I do over think things because I am a pretty emotional person. The reason I find this so powerful is because we all tend to feed one more than the other. Personally I try to feed the good wolf more because it is more my personality and I just do not have the ability or power to feed the evil. Of course I have my bad days when I get angry and have a hard time letting go of those feeling. But, I also think it is very destructive to hold onto anger and resentment.

I received some very valuable advice from a fellow blogger today about making a doctor’s appointment really count. I hope I add this the right way, but Caz’s site Invisibly Me had some fabulous advice http://invisiblyme.com/2016/10/12/make-it-count-6-tips-for-your-next-gp-appointment/. If you have not already checked out Caz’s site, it is definitely worth checking out! Thank you again Caz for this great advice!!

I hope y’all have a lovely and relaxing evening! I always appreciate you visiting my site and I love your comments, which I do respond to just as quickly as I can. Sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Fight for your health!

fight for a cureI hope y’all have a lovely Monday! First day of a new week may bring some wonderful and positive changes to all of our lives! I really appreciate y’all visiting my site today and as always love to read your comments, which I do respond to as quickly as I can! Most of the time I like to write about the random things that are on my mind. This helps me to release all those emotions and then getting your feedback help tremendously, so thank you for all of your fantastic comments!

How do you fight for your health instead of fight against it? It is so important to be vocal with your doctor and never allow them to dismiss what you say or rush you out of the exam room. We all know our bodies and how we are feeling better than anyone, so that should be listened to. I think at times it is hard to admit what our body is telling us and our body feels as though it has to scream it at us, which may cause additional issues. I am one that will ignore issues that arise for as long as possible because I do not want to admit to the problems. Ignoring or neglecting our health will never result in anything beneficial. This is where fighting for our health becomes extremely important. If we ignore what our body is telling us we are actually fighting against our own health.

I am actually going to my MS Specialist on Thursday. I am going to my specialist partially because I am supposed to see her every 6 months and partially because I want to share with her my concerns. I already know going in that my issues with headaches will be dismissed because she seems to think that MS and headaches have no correlation, but I think it is still important to bring the topic up once again. I also want to discuss with her the fact that the issues that came with my relapse in October have not really gone away. I am fully aware that the body heals from each relapse differently, but I should have improved drastically by now and not continue to have pain that affects my ability to work full-time. I just really need answers to why I seem to be at a stand still in health. Do y’all have any suggestions to how to grab this doctor’s attention?

I hope y’all have a great and relaxing evening! As always I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort! Try to hold onto your positive thoughts because they will help in the long run and negative thoughts will only hold you back.

Hiding behind a mask

maskDo you ever try to hide behind a mask of what you think you should be? Or hide behind the mask of what other’s think you should be? Sometimes admitting how you truly feel can be terrifying and almost make you feel weak. Periodically I think most of us try to be strong and act like everything is fine when it really isn’t. Always trying to be strong by not allowing anyone to see your pain and struggles becomes a normal way of life, but is that really the best way to live life?

Do you ever feel that you need to disguise your feelings? I can fully admit that I try to not allow my feelings to  come to surface when I think they will cause others additional stress. If I am being honest, I do worry about my Multiple Sclerosis and if things are progressing too fast, but it is not good to over think situations you have absolutely no fake our smilecontrol over. Holding on tight to positive thoughts can be very difficult, but can really change your life, whereas allowing negative thoughts in your mind can be pretty destructive. If I allow my mind to think that my MS is progressing it makes it a real thought opening doors that I prefer not walk through. Building a barrier between our thoughts and reality is sometimes possible if we try!

Stress is a silent killer that can impact all of our lives. So how in the world do you avoid it? Some stress is actually avoidable, but then some stress is completely impossible to avoid because it will come at you with full force. The ways we handle stress are really important! I have tried doing some research about how to avoid stress and found some tips that might be helpful. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and nicotine. So many turn to alcohol when they become overwhelmed, but it is very well know that alcohol is a depressant so that will never be helpful in any way and could cause even more problems. Indulging in physical activity can be helpful for our health as well. Stressful situations increase the levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline in the body. So we might be able to take some of the adrenaline from stress and turn it into something positive. Lack of sleep is a significant cause of stress. Stress can interrupt our sleep because our minds are in a constant whirlwind of thoughts which stops us from relaxing enough to even fall asleep. If we are having a hard time falling asleep there are things to try like taking a warm bath or reading a book because these will calm the mind! Starting a stress diary where you can write out your feelings and keep track of your thoughts can be very helpful! Writing out your feelings can help you find ways to solve your problems and not have to worry about judgement from others; your journal will not talk back! These were just a few MS Hopeideas that stuck out to me, but I know there are so many other ways to handle stress! 

I have been very worried about health care in the United States. There have been so many changes that are not really for the positive. I think doctor’s schedules are so full it makes it hard for them to give each patient the attention they deserve and they may even confuse patients. With the doctor’s schedules being so incredibly full, I think sometimes their notes can be misleading and incorrect. I actually know this to be true because I recently had my doctor’s office give me a copy of the notes for the last few years.  I have also been very concerned about my MS because things have not gotten much better since the relapse I had in October. I do not know if this means the MS has progressed or if the additional non-stop pain is just here for the long haul. All illnesses are like uninvited guests that just will not leave and make messes during their stay.

I know the weather has been a little crazy all over the world, but I hope y’all had a great weekend! The snowstorms that have occurred at the end of March have been pretty unusual, but I hope if y’all have experienced this you were able to stay warm. I am hoping that this upcoming week will bring us all some pretty spring temperatures. Y’all have already read before that I am never fully ready for the new week to start because I would prefer to have another day of rest. Hopefully this new week will give us some real joy and comfort! I really appreciate y’all visiting my site today and I do look forward to all of your comments! I hope the remaining part of your weekend is absolutely fantastic and restful! I am always sending y’all much love and comfort!!

Where is Spring?

where-is-springOn March 20th, we should have been graced with spring weather, but it seems Mother Nature had a difference of opinion! The first day of spring was rather warm, but then the days that followed were very chilly and some even had snow! Spring time snow just does not seem right to me, but I guess we will never understand how nature works. Spring is “supposed” to bring on the blooming of the trees and blossoming of the flowers adding so much beauty to the world! New life is given to nature and new beginnings are created all around us. The amazing and various colors of flowers give an incredibly artistic sight for us to see. Even the trees, which most think are just green, have a variety of different greens brightening up our surroundings! Of course the days delay the darkness of night by having a few hours longer of daylight and sunshine!

The days ahead are finally showing some signs of spring like weather. I really do hope that spring will stick around a while before we are bombarded with the summer heat! Summer is great for going to the beach, but when you live hours from the beach it is not always so fantastic! When it is 100 degrees out with high humidity, you literally can not walk from an air conditioned building to your car without being drenched in sweat! With the way Mother Nature has been acting, it is hard to say what summer is going to be like. There were a few days in February when the temperatures were in the upper spring_flowers_2015_longwood_cr_LongwoodGardensLAlbee70’s, which is highly abnormal! I do not think it is healthy for temperatures to go from nearly 80 degrees to the next day being in the upper 40’s that is too drastic of a change.

How is your spring going so far? Are y’all having spring like weather or are you experiencing the tail end of winter still? I know I have said this before, but my body does not respond well to dramatic weather changes. I definitely do not handle chilly rainy days well at all. Do you feel like cold rainy days worsen how you feel? But in all honesty, we can not control the weather and just need to do what we can to keep living! Never allowing an illness that is strongly affected by weather is hard, but we are all so much stronger than that!

I recently did a post about pain management doctors and how I feel about them. I do understand there is a huge issue right now with people abusing pain medications and doctors do not seem to have the man power to know which of their patients are not just after some type of high, but actually just want to live a normal life without pain. I feel like there is a lot of judging going on right now with people who live in pain and go to pain management. These patients should not be labeled as an addict or anything else that is humble-and-kinddemeaning. No one in their right mind wants to go to the doctor for anything, but they surely do not want to sit in a doctor’s office while they are in pain and wait to be seen. These people would much rather be at home where they are comfortable. So those that go through the struggles of getting to the doctor’s office and wait are suffering and in need of relief. I do not want it to sound like I am placing all the blame for the opioid crisis on the doctors and government, but they both have a lot to do with the issues at hand. I will never think that those that have a legitimate reason for going to pain management because of an accident or illness should be punished further. It does not seem fair to add more pain and suffering to those already under much stress from the pains they go through every day! 

I always appreciate you stopping by my site and I love reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. We are all entitled to our own opinions and they all matter! I hope your weekend is going well and you are able to enjoy every moment of it! Sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Forgiveness!?

forgiveness 2Do y’all ever find it extremely difficult to forgive sometimes? Is it even harder to find the power to forgive someone, when you find that is all you do in the relationship? This relationship can be a friend, family member or significant other, but the facts remain the same forgiveness can be extremely complicated and even grueling over time!  

Forgiveness is an intentional and voluntary process in which a person undergoes a change of feelings and attitude regarding an event that occurred in life and works towards letting go of negative emotions. This process is not easy, but it does help us to not destroy our lives with anger, hurt, bitterness and numerous other toxic emotions. I do find it hard to forgive someone who has made the same error of judgement multiple times, but at some point it is not necessarily their fault, it is mine for allowing it to forgiveness-1024x683continue.

There are several reasons why forgiving someone is important! Not to sound selfish, but forgiveness is not always just for another person, it is for our own well-being! Having the ability to forgive allows for us to move on without any anger in our hearts. Clenching onto anger only hinders us from well-deserved happiness. Grasping onto anger that resulted from being mistreated and or taken advantage of does not affect the one who did the wrong, it affects the victim in the situation in a very negative light. I might not be right, but I think letting go of our anger and hurt will cause the one that did us wrong more confusion and result in a healing heart for the one wronged. Why allow for anger and hurt to negatively impact our lives for an extended period of time? In the grand scheme of things it probably is not that important and should not be hanging over our heads, we are worth more than that!

We have all been in a situation where we have to make a decision to forgive someone, how do you handle that? Do you have specific steps to make it a little easier to wrap your forget the mistakemind around what went wrong and why? Maybe write down the person’s name that you feel like you need to forgive, along with the reasons behind it will be helpful. This may allow you to be a little clearer about the situation. Clasping the extent of the violation that was done onto you is also pretty important. Addressing the emotions involved is crucial in letting go over the problem. 

I have always heard that forgiving and forgetting is what we are supposed to do, but why should we forget? I have the ability to forgive another, even if they do the same thing over and over again, but I do not have the capability to forget what happened! The wrongs that were done are burned into my mind and heart forever! Being wronged by someone you put your trust into is so painful and hard to move past, so what do you do in that situation? For the most part, those that have treated me in a terribleforgiveness 1 and unfair way have been removed from my life. I think it is possible to forgive someone for what they have done wrong, but not allow that person into your life is logical. I feel that it is just protecting yourself from further hurt and incredible pain, but maybe I am not dealing with things in the best way I can.  Sometimes I do believe it is best to love as much as you can when possible, but let go when that “love” causes you more pain that joy!

I hope y’all are having a lovely weekend! I really appreciate you visiting my site today and really look forward to any comments you have! All of us are strong and compassionate people who have a deep understanding of others emotions! I know sometimes I go off a little rants about topics I am very passionate about and your support and understanding is very appreciated! I hope y’all are feeling well and getting the rest you all deserve!

I hope y’all have a safe St. Patrick’s Day! As always, I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Escape Negativity!

state_of_emergencyThe world has become a constant state of anger and negativity! It is almost impossible to turn on the television and not be shown another act of violence or another type of anger. So many lives are affected every day by these horrendous acts. Anywhere from school shootings, to ludicrous talk from the White House, to an incredible amount of police brutality, to the lack of ethics in corporate American, it seems never-ending! There has to be something that can be done to stop the outrageous behaviors that have become the new norm.

Personally, I do my absolute best to hold onto the positive aspects of life. I do believe that even in the darkest times we encounter in our lives, there is a bright side somewhere even if it is well hidden. If we surrender to all this negativity surrounding us, we are not any better than those stirring up the pessimism. We do have the ability within us to rise above all the hate and show love for others!

It is possible that I am wrong, but I think the amount of hate in this world has increasedholding-on-to-anger-is-like-grasping-a-hot-coal-with-intent-of-throwing-if-at-someone-else drastically over the last 14 months or so. Politics with family and friends has always been a sensitive subject and probably always will be that way. Everyone wants to believe in who they vote into any political position and will not listen to reason when the facts are proven, over and over again. I think it is safe to say that no one really wants to admit they were wrong and were blindly convinced someone would make positive changes. It does not matter what side we are on, not many politicians are very honest. They all say what they believe people want to hear and will force that person to support them through anything! Who wants to believe that anyone in a powerful position would destroy something that could be truly wonderful? I think that money and greed can influence people to do things that ordinarily they would never think of doing. For me, there is absolutely no amount of money that would make me think it is okay to destroy anyone’s life!

When I was younger I thought that the United States was a great country to live in because we were free and safe. But, now that I am older and a little wiser I am questioning this a lot more! How are we free and safe when we have someone constantly making what were allies angry and making others that could be considered dangerous hostile? In order to create harmony, there must be logic and common sense! I have thought for a long time now that logical behavior and common sense were long-lost, which is pretty unfortunate.

I know that this entire post was absolutely nothing to do with any chronic illnesses or issues that come with illnesses, but these thoughts are pretty important in the big picture. There is way too much hate encompassing people around the world right now! No hateWhen we should be evolving, but it seems as though we are devolving! I have my thoughts on where it is stemming from, but there could be a lot more involved that I am just not aware of. I do not know how to make changes in massive amounts, all I know to do is always treat those I encounter with respect and dignity!

How do y’all feel about the state of the world right now? Do you believe there are positive or negative things occurring daily? How are you personally handling the issues that you view on the television or see in person? I am going to be honest, I was a little worried about sharing this post because I do not want to offend anyone reading. I am just really tired of hearing about all of the hate and violence that is constantly going on. I am and always have been a very compassionate person, but that just seems to be unusual in the world today.

I hope y’all had a great week and I hope you are looking forward to your weekend! I am so glad we finally made it to the weekend because this has been an incredibly long week and I wish the weekend would be just as long as the week felt! I really appreciate you reading my rant today and I would love to hear your comments! I will of course respond to you as quickly as I can! I hope you have a very lovely evening and a fantastic weekend! I am always sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Live and Love Life!

2-quote-about-no-matter-how-impossible-unattainable-or-unim-image-background-imageIt may seem that happiness is an unattainable goal in life and that it is only meant for the selected lucky few. Happiness is a state of mind that is not necessarily chosen or ignored, but is sought-after and fought for. When faced with an unbearable and powerless situation it is so much easier to just give up and suppress our desires to excel. It sometimes takes more energy to succeed and far less energy to fail ourselves. Life can be so darn complicated and it may become hard to see the bright side of any given situation, but there is one!

I have always held onto something my grandfather said to me a long time ago, “There is always someone going through something worse than you are in life.” I still do find this to be valuable and very wise information and would never really question anything he had said to me because of how much respect I had for him. But at the same time, how can you really judge what situation is worse in life for anyone? Everyone deals with their troubles in different ways and have their own views on the level of hardships. Is there any comparison in what I live with daily and what someone else with another chronic illness battles? Is my pain any less of a struggle than someone with other pain issues? I think itlife-is-short-time-is-fast-no-replay-no-rewind-25882738 is all in the perspective of the one living with that struggle. I mean think about a person that was just diagnosed with incurable cancer. They have to deal with chemotherapy and so many other decisions, but they do their best to handle that situation the best they possibly can. Or even someone who has already been dealing with Multiple Sclerosis goes to the doctor for an update and is told their illness has progressed from Relapsing-Remitting MS to Secondary-Progressive MS, they have to adjust their mindset in life. Of course these situations are never easy and anyone would go through a vast amount of different emotions, but they do it! Life does not end or allow you to pause it when you are faced with an illness of any kind, you just are required to continue living the best way you can.

We are all supposed to find ways to cope with the life we were given and there is not a rewind or reset button available. Mistakes are inevitable, but we all must learn from our mistakes and carry on with a new outlook on life! We acknowledge what mistakes have perfectly imperfectbeen made, grieve what has been done and lost, set a game plan for moving forward, learn from what has taken place and move on with strength and determination for our future. I believe all of our mistakes made empower us to become even better than we were before. They build our character to be more enlightened and be able to see the bigger picture. We are all just perfectly imperfect humans with the knowledge of what was learned throughout our lives! If we just give up because we failed once in life, we are missing out on all the great things life will offer us!

Our lives are sometimes like a dance. Sometimes we might have our toes stepped on, but dance in the rainsometimes it will be a beautiful piece of work. There may be new and difficult moves to conquer and perform, but over time we will learn to be graceful and almost flawless. It takes determination to learn all the different dances involved in life, but it will end up being something we are incredibly proud of! 

I hope y’all are having a nice and relaxing weekend! I know the weather where I am has been chilly and there is a constant threat of rain which is never very enjoyable, however I am doing what I can to just enjoy the days away from work! I even treated myself to getting my hair trimmed today. It had been a long time since taking care of my hair and it was a wonderful feeling! I am able to relate to my hairdresser’s thought process, which is always great! I like being around people who are down to earth and just very real with their thoughts. It is not so fun being around people that have a fake demeanor because you are always playing a guessing game about what is actually sincere or deceitful! I hope y’all are feeling well and getting the rest you deserve! I appreciate you stopping by my site today and really look forward to any comments you may have, I promise to respond as quickly as I can! As always I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort!!

Continued headaches and pain!

happy-friday-eve-walking-into-work-like-i-own-the-placeHappy Friday Eve Y’all! I hope you have had a good week and are ready for the much-needed weekend! It seems to have been a long week and I even missed a day of work due to my headaches and pain. I have no answers, only speculation as to what causes my headaches and or pain. As y’all already know, I do not like to give into these issues because it does not ever help and I prefer to push myself further. 

I always lean towards blaming the weather for any pain issues I have and the weather really has been all over the place. It was only last week when it was sunny and warm, but now this week has had a terrible chill in the air and vast amounts of rain. My body does not handle when there is a bitterness in the air because I tend to become very stiff. Then when you add the rain to the mix, I feel every pain possible and more.  Even though I am so thankful for the weekend, it is supposed to rain all weekend. Luckily I will be able to combat the chilly rainy weather by staying inside and under a warm blanket all weekend! 

Stress is a very obvious pain trigger for me. I am pretty sure all of you reading this know how much stress intensifies pain and headaches. I am working on controlling my stress forgive ourselvesbetter. It sounds crazy, but I am the type of person that will stress about being stressed and wonder what I am doing wrong! I think that one way to reduce and manage stress is to set boundaries in life, which I am working on! It is important to recognize that the only thing in life that you are able to control is yourself and you are not able to control other’s behaviors. You are able to control your own reactions and actions, but have absolutely no control on the conduct of another person. We are all have experience with forgiving others, but sometimes forget to forgive ourselves!

Thank y’all for stopping by my site today and your comments are always welcomed! I will respond to all comments as soon as I can and really enjoy the communications! I hope y’all are feeling well and have a relaxing evening! Always look on the bright side of things, we made it through another week and the weekend is almost here! As always I am sending you lots of love and comfort!

Healthy Anger v.s Unhealthy Anger!

healthy-and-unhealthy-angerDid y’all know there is a difference between healthy anger and unhealthy anger? I honestly had no idea there was a difference. I do not like confrontation at all and I will try to avoid it at all costs. I guess you can say that I just bottle up my emotions even though I know that is not a good way to live.  I try so hard to ignore what I am really feeling, thinking that if I ignore it those emotions will just go away, but they do not! Avoiding confrontation has never been a successful method!

Anger alerts us that we need to protect ourselves. It is an alert that we are not being treated correctly and something in our life is not working out the best way it can and should! Anger is an awareness tool that shines light on an injustice and provides insight to make necessary changes. We should never dismiss the anger that we are feeling, but we should investigate our feelings and make imperative changes and then let it go. Adults-and-Anger-What-Causes-AngerLetting go is never easy, but if we are able to acknowledge and address the pain we are feeling, the next step is to just release those negative feelings and move on with our lives! If we continue to stifle our emotions we may miss an opportunity to make some real positive changes in life and that would be a disgrace to ourselves and we would probably regret not taking the chance we were given for a beneficial change!

Unhealthy anger does not do us any good either. This type of anger can cause emotional and physical issues, but can also have a terrible impact on those around us as well. Anger can suffocate a person that is only trying to avoid the initial confrontation, but the issues are still present until they are dealt with. Unhealthy anger is continuously fed, masks_of_anger_revisited and held onto, but the issue or issues are never addressed. This allows for anger to just pile up and you will feel like you are going to explode. I think the best way to explain it is, have you ever taken an unopened bottle of soda and shaken it vigorously? What happens when you open that bottle? Whatever type of soda you just shook up will explode all over the place.

My soda analogy is what can happen when someone allows for the anger to just stay inside their heart and mind, not address the problem and let it go! Whatever you are angry with will not just magically disappear and improve without talking about it. bottle-explosionCommunication is so incredibly important as it will allow us to learn from the mistakes made in life and make proper changes. Change can be scary, but it can be a good thing as well.

Anger can happen with anyone, not just a loved one or co-worker, it can occur when we drive to work and someone cuts us off. That one small incident with the bad drive sets presence to our mood for the day! With the situation with the bad driver, you are not really able to confront them and get the negative emotion out in the open, so what do you do? I guess you just have to expect for others on the road to not be as cautious and careful as you are and chalk it up to another day on the road! In situations like that I know the initial reaction might be to use some unpleasant sign language, but that does not fix the issue and will not teach anyone how to drive. I can honestly say that it is not easy to let things like this go, but at the same time is not worth our mental time and allowing it to ruin our day!

How many times has your significant other made you so angry that you wanted to angescream? Has anyone in your family ever done something so outrageous that it caused resentment and frustration to the point you were not able to speak to them for a little while?  It is perfectly normal to get angry, especially with family because you know more about them behind the scenes. I think family anger is a lot more painful than most anger because it is so much closer to your heart. I think anger with our family tends to be more intense because we normally have higher expectations for them than just the normal run of the mill person we communicate with. We hold our family to higher standards so we expect so much out of them. Sometimes I wonder if it is just better to keep our expectations low so we are never disappointed, but when something great happens we can savor that moment! 

Life can be extremely difficult and we are all going to face some kind of disagreement angry kittythroughout out lives. It is okay to be angry, but it is also very important to address what you are angry about. If you allow angry to fester and never address the problem, it will only hinder your own happiness. 

I hope y’all had a great Monday! As always I do appreciate you visiting my site today and your comments are very welcomed! I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can and look forward to the conversation! I hope y’all have a very relaxing and pleasant evening! Sending you lots of love and comfort!
