Pick-Me-Up Thursday

I always prefer to think of today as Friday eve because it sounds much better than Thursday! How has your week been? For some reason, even though it has not been a super busy week, it has felt incredibly long. Life can be so exhausting because it seems like someone always needs something or someone feels the need to complain. I am not sure what people think complaining is going to accomplish, except drive others crazy. Maybe that is their goal or maybe they just like to hear their voice. No matter what I go through in life, I do try to never complain because it does nothing positive!

We have managed to make it through most of this week and only have one final day to survive because the weekend returns! I think we could all use a little pick-me-up to get through one more day, which hopefully, will not be too terrible! Unfortunately, we too often must deal with people who are unkind and rude, which none of us deserve. I hope the quote that I am sharing will help you handle these poorly behaved people and that you know that you are MUCH better than that! I do still believe when people are rude to others, they are just unhappy with themselves and want to make others feel just as badly as they do.

Now that we are so close to the weekend, do you have any plans? The only thing I know I am going to do is, go through my closet and decide what I am going to donate. I think this is important to do every so often because there are so many people that are in need and if we have things we are not using, there is no reason to keep them. I used to be better about doing this every few months because there was a place where we used to live that helped women and children who were in an abusive environment. Regardless of if I can find another place like that where we are living now, there are still so many homeless the need warm clothes in the cooler weather.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote was a nice pick-me-up for you. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. Always remember, YOU are important and YOU deserve nothing but the best in life. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! I hope you have had a good week and you are looking forward to the weekend. Do you have anything planned for the weekend? I plan to try relaxing and resting because I am still a little rundown from the mini vacation for my husband’s birthday. The only thing I will ask you is, please stay safe. Several people that I work with and remember, I work from home and have not met anyone I work with personally, but I learned that several of them were diagnosed with COVID. I am unaware if they received any of the vaccines or boosters, but they did say how miserable they were feeling, and I would not want anyone to feel that way.

It does not matter who we are or what we have overcome in life, we all have bad days. When we have a bad day, it can be difficult to get over it when others are behaving negatively or unpleasantly. Yesterday, I was frustrated because of a few things that occurred when I was out, and I felt like someone was throwing me under the bus and making a mountain out of a molehill. I ended up chatting with another co-worker about the issues and told her how foolish I felt. This co-worker has become a good friend and she was able to say a few things that turned my bad day into a much brighter day. This is the reason I am sharing the quote I am today, and I hope it helps you deal with challenging days a little better😊!

We may not always be able to say the right things when communicating with others, but we can most definitely say the wrong thing that will make another person feel terrible. Our words and actions can make a HUGE difference in another person’s life, but we always want it to be for the better. There is already too much negative that occurs in the world around us, but we can do something positive. Unfortunately, we will never know the way someone else is feeling or if they are struggling and ready to give up on life. I know that none of us want to be the reason why someone does something they cannot take back!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the two quotes that I shared, and they resonate with you, and you will turn around and share them with someone else. I have always believed it is easier to be kind, understanding, and compassionate with others as opposed to being mean and rude because that takes too much energy, and is a waste of our time. All it takes is to do or say something nice to another person and it could change their entire day for the better😊! I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

We have survived the first part of the week with no problem, so hopefully, the second part of the week will be just as easy! Of course, I was still on “vacation” on Monday, so yesterday was my first day back at work. Thankfully, it was not too bad because my co-worker that was taking care of my work did a great job and now she is off for a few days and I am taking care of hers. Teamwork makes the dream work, right? My goodness, I never liked that saying because it is so clique and my old boss said it ALL the time! I suppose it is true though! 

At the halfway part of the week, we know the weekend is near and we only have a couple of days to get through, but we could still use just a little inspiration, right? Maybe that is just me because I am still a little worn out from the mini vacation and the incredibly LONG drive. I am still hoping the quote that I am sharing with you will be inspiring and help you get through the rest of the week! Unfortunately, there is too much negativity and hate in the world where others are tearing people down and belittling others. The reason for this awful and mean behavior tends to be that someone is feeling bad about themselves and they just want others to feel just as bad as they do. This makes no sense to me because I feel we should only try to encourage, strengthen and help others. Why not try to build others up and make the world a better place?

How is your week going? Has anything exciting happened or are you just ready for the weekend? I am not sure why, but the darn MS hug has returned. The only reason I can think this is happening is due to stress and the LONG drive. Who knows why the mean and very unwelcomed MS hug comes to visit unexpectedly? I know that Multiple Sclerosis is unpredictable, but this is a very unpleasant thing to have to deal with. I would blame it on my tooth extraction, but I do not think that would be true. The only thing that I can blame on the tooth extraction is this very annoying static sound in my ears. I am hoping both of these things will go away sooner rather than later!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and that you found the quote inspiring! I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. I know it might seem like there are too many days left in the week, but try to remember we have made it through the worst part! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

I am not going to say happy Thursday because I prefer thinking about today as Friday eve! The weeks seem to feel much longer than normal and I cannot figure out why! The only thing that has changed is the weather is much cooler, which I do like because I do not do well when it is super HOT! The weather has been much easier to tolerate, which makes sleep better! I do feel rather lucky because one of our cats feels she MUST sleep with me all night long. The other night the poor little girl cuddle up and did not move once, which caused me to wake up with my arm dead asleep😊! After a long day dealing with people that want to complain, my cats are one of the only things that make everything better.

Yesterday, I had my second one-on-one meeting with my supervisor, which I used to dread or panic about but I do not anymore. Not only do I have one of the best supervisors I have ever had, but I also have an amazing team to work with😊. These are things that make going to work easier as we are working more than we are at home enjoying life. Of course, I do work from home, but I am meaning home doing nothing but relaxing with my sweet and loving cats!

Thankfully, we are near the end of the week, which makes the weekend MUCH closer. At this point, we can almost taste the weekend😊! Even though the weekend is so close, we do still have a little left of this week, so I think we could all use a little pick-me-up! I have been fond of this quote since I first found it because I think it is incredibly true. I have always believed that no one comes into our lives by accident and all the events that we have experienced happened for a reason, even the ones we did not enjoy or regretted. The people that have come into our lives and everything we have been through have made us as strong as we are today!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and you found the quote meaningful. I do hope you are having a good week and staying calm and stress-free as much as you can. I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday

I think that a congratulations is in order because we made it through the least favorite day of the week yesterday😊. Monday is typically a day we all dread because it means the workweek began. The weekend seems so far away, but in all honesty, the days do go by rather fast. Of course, we do have to get through five grueling days just to make it to a weekend with two of the shortest days ever, but it will all be worth it. It does appear that as I get older, the days, weeks, and years go much faster!

How was your Monday? Mine was not bad at all and in fact was better than my weekend. I had almost forgotten about a one-on-one meeting with my supervisor in the morning and for some reason, I always get nervous about meetings like these. I must say, I have one of the most amazing supervisors and the best one I have had in a long time😊! This was our first one-on-one meeting and it was wonderful. I seriously wish there were more people like her because she truly cares! Not only is she easy to talk to, she listens, which is not as common as it should be!

There is one day completed this week and four left, but I think the days will pass with ease. Considering we survived Monday😊, I do not think the rest of these days will be too bad. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with a sense of peace and calmness. Life can be stressful and we often need a reminder of how to live a calm and peaceful life. One thing that always brings me peace is the sound of the ocean. The sounds of the waves rolling in and back out are glorious and extremely peaceful.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote and it brings you the same peace it has given to me. The good thing about Tuesday is, we survived Monday and we are well on our way to the weekend again😊! I would love to know what you thought about what I shared today 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!

Motivational Monday

It is amazing how fast Monday returns because it feels like it was Friday just an hour ago. All I can say right now is, where in the world did the weekend go? Although it was obviously too short, how was your weekend? I think there must have been something floating around in the air because the last few days have been a little challenging. Life cannot always be sunshine and rainbows as we all experience rainy dark days. The good thing is we find ways to work through the bad days so that we can enjoy the good times when they return because they always will just stay calm and remain patient😊!

It does not matter if we are ready or not, but the new week is here and we must try to approach it with as much motivation as we can find within us. I know it is not easy, especially because the weekend was short and a little stressful, but I also know we have the strength to do so! I hope you will find the quote I am sharing with you today motivating, encouraging, and inspiring because that is what we need at the beginning of the week. Although the world might be filled with unpleasantries and ugliness, there are also many beautiful and amazing things as well. Sometimes it does take distancing yourself from the negativity before you can view the beauty!

How was your weekend? I hope you were able to relax and anything you did brought you happiness😊. I am still so happy that the temperatures seem to be getting better and not so insanely hot, but I also know that Mother Nature can change at any moment. Many people do enjoy summer because of those amazing beach vacations, which I do love, but I do not enjoy the ridiculous 90-100 degrees. The first day of Autumn is this week, which is my favorite season. The temperatures get a lot more pleasant, not too hot and not too cold, they are just right😊!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you and you found the quote meaningful. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. I hope your week begins well and only gets better with each day that passes until the weekend returns. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! How has your week been? Yes, I know the short weeks can feel painfully long and people cannot seem to understand most things are not the end of the world and that life will continue to move forward. I wish people would learn to be even a little more understanding and compassionate, but it seems like that is a wish that might never come to fruition. I guess a girl can dream though😉. I do have a few people that I work with that are absolutely amazing and they can make the worst of days much brighter just by being who they are, and for that I love them!

After only a couple of days in our short week, we do still have one more to push through and I think we could all use a little pick-me-up. I love the quote from Albert Einstein I am sharing because it brings so much clarity to the world. As children, many of us had wild imaginations that we utilized, but as adults, we get so bogged down with the busyness of our daily lives we have lost the connection with our imaginations. I think if we could all try using that brilliant imagination a little during the day, we might notice an amazing change in life and even be a little less stressed and a lot happier!

I hope your week is going well and you are looking forward to the upcoming weekend. Do you have any plans for the weekend? Of course, I have no plans at all which is just the way I like it. The work week, even the short weeks seem so long and they are all planned out, I just enjoy having a few days that are not planned. I know some people would think I live a boring life and that might be true, but it is not complicated and it is safe.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and the quote helps you to use your imagination more, and that helps you through the last day of the week. I look forward to reading your comments and I 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!

Motivational Monday

Monday again, but today is a little different because most of us are off work today😊! There is almost nothing better than a long weekend! Are you doing anything special today or are you taking the day as a relaxing day? Considering my husband has to work tonight and we are dealing with LOTS of rain, I plan to just relax and prepare for the rest of the week. Were you able to do anything exciting over the past two days? I did not do anything too exciting, but I did get my vehicle working again, so I am not trapped at home or depending on a Uber ride! 

Even though this is a short week, we all need a little motivation to begin the week with the best of intentions and positive thoughts! Yes, this will be a shorter week, but they always feel longer to me than the typical weeks. The only thing we can do is brace ourselves and push through the best we can because that is what we do best! I hope you will find the quote I am sharing motivating as it covers everything we need to understand our strengths and abilities.

Today we can do just about anything we want, well unless you have to work today. I think besides relaxing with my sweet cats, I want to finish a few posts I have been thinking about. Nothing better to do when I do not have to work but catch up on things I am unable to do when I have to work. I also think it might be a good idea to figure out what I am going to write about for the essay competition because I know I will regret it if I do not at least try. I have always believed the only way we can fail is if we do not try or we give up!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote was motivating for you. I do look forward to reading your comments, which I 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!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday Eve 😊! How has your week been? It has been far too HOT and I do not think the temperatures are going to get cooler anytime soon. I swear, summer can often feel like we are living in hell, but hotter! It is terrible when you walk aside and feel like you are in a sauna or an oven that is turned up as high as it can go. Of course, there are good things about summer, but it is almost impossible to live near the ocean so you can feel the glorious ocean breeze and hear the waves crashing down!

We have somehow survived most of this week, but we do have a couple left before the weekend returns. This is the home stretch, as we wait “patiently” for the weekend 😊! I think we can all use a little pick-me-up that offers encouragement and strength. I hope you will feel the meaning of the quote I have shared and it encourages you to push forward for the remainder of this week. I think what we are “supposed:” to do, taking care of our responsibilities, home life, and work are embedded into our minds and we get lost. Many people are so focused on caring for everyone and everything else, they feel their emotions are unimportant and invalid. This way of thinking is not true and it is a hard pattern to end, but we can do it!

Now that the weekend is almost here, do you have any plans? One thing I want to do is purchase a few things for the outside of our house. I would like to plant some flowers in large pots to go on our front porch. I think flowers brighten life up and look really pretty. It might have to wait until next spring, but I really want to plant butterfly bushes because I LOVE butterflies and it would be amazing to see butterflies around the house! Does anyone have any advice on planting flowers and the best way to plant bushes?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and I was able to shine a little light on your day! I would love to know you thoughts about the quote I shared and any other comments you have. I promise to 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!

Mid-Week Inspiration

We have made it to the middle of the week, so we are that much closer to the weekend! Like every other week, this has been another long week and I said I would work overtime, again. That means working 10 hour days, but I am not working on Saturday! I figured after working three 10 hour days, I will not have the energy to work any on Saturday. I also have to give our poor cat her liquid medication again this week and she hates it, which means she will fight me tooth and nail to avoid it. If this medication was not “supposed” to be helping her, I would feel really bad for tormenting her, but hopefully this will prevent us from having to make the decision to have all her teeth pulled. Poor little girl has chronic gingivitis.

As we have survived the first part of the week and have a few days left until the weekend, I think we could all use some inspiration! I hope you will find inspiration and encouragement in the quote I have shared. There is nothing wrong with feeling angry, frustrated, and or discouraged during some times in our life, we are only human. It is just as important to keep going and never direct these emotions it at those not responsible for the challenging times. Yes, it can be easy to take our frustrations out on whoever is closest to us, but we need to try to control that because most of the time the person we take it out on, has nothing to do with why we are frustrated and or angry.

I hope your week is going well and you are staying as stress-free as you can. I am good at giving advice about stress, but terrible at taking my own advice. I manage to stress about everything and it takes a tole on my health. I know it is not good to stress and I am trying, but I continue to fail. It has been a little better this week, but I do still stress about things, especially work. Most of the things we find ourselves becoming stressed about are not going to change no matter how much we stress about it, so why bother with it, right?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote offered you the inspiration needed to get through the rest of this week. No matter what we go through in life, we need to always stay true to who we are and stand up for what you believe in. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
