Friday Eve Pick-Me-Up

Happy Friday Eve, y’all! Of course, it is wonderful that tomorrow is Friday, but even better, we are heading into a long weekend! I do know that even when it is a three-day weekend, it never feels long enough, but I am still glad to have three days off from work! I wish I could say we were going out of town or doing something exciting, but we are staying at home. I would love to go somewhere over the weekend and to get some flowers for our front porch because I love how beautiful flowers look, and smell. Of course, I will be saying something different when there are too many bees, which I am terrified of! Are you excited about the long weekend, and do you have anything planned?

We are at the end of this week and only have one day left before the long weekend, but I think we could use a little pick-me-up! I loved everything this quote states and I agree with every word. We all have something to be happy about, but this does not mean we cannot have a bad day because we are all simply human! The hardships we all endure will never make us weak, but will make us stronger! No matter how hard we try, we will not always succeed, but I think we can fail when we give up and stop trying! Love is easy, and love is free, so there is no reason to not spread as much love as we can!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today, and that you have a wonderful day! Even though I do know there is a long weekend coming, this week has felt long. The weather has been causing me many issues with my Multiple Sclerosis, including increased pain and fatigue! Hopefully, this weekend will offer me some relaxation and will ease my pain! I am looking 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! 

Always, Alyssa


Tranquil Tuesday

We managed to get through one day of the week and now we only have four left! I think it is important to look at this positively, as we are closer to the weekend now😊! I hope the first day of your week was easy and each day gets even easier until Friday! How is your week going? I am helping my husband prepare for his “boys” snowboarding trip and hoping he has a fantastic time as he does love snowboarding more than I do! I am even making him his favorite breakfast sandwiches to eat while he is on his “boys” trip! The cold weather tends to create more pain for me, which is not something that I need!

During the workweek, we can become stressed with work or our other duties. Even though I know it is better to try to stay calm, it is not easy for me to do. I do understand that stress does not help anything or anyone and it only creates more issues. We do not always remember this, but life is short and we never know when our time will be up. Therefore, we should never allow anything or anyone to steal our happiness from us! There are always going to be people that know what buttons to push for us and we need to try to ignore them because we do not want to give them the power to eliminate our happiness in this short life!

What do you have in store for the rest of the week? Honestly, I am just thankful Monday is over because now I am more prepared for the rest of the week! I know it might sound crazy, but I am hoping work gets a little busier soon because it will make the day go faster. I know I have mentioned the writing competition in a few posts and I am still debating between two topics. I have a few paragraphs written for each topic and I am going to continue to play around with them both and see which one works out better. I guess it is a good thing I enjoy writing because I might end up having two articles completed before the deadline in May.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and that it has offered you some peace. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. I hope you have a wonderful day and you take things as they come and you do not get overly stressed about anything. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Happiness is a choice!

Life is short and we are not given an infinite amount of time to live our lives. I have always believed that our stories were written before we were born, and we are just here to play a part. No one knows when their life will be over, so I think it is best to live each day to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised to anyone. One thing I would like to try and continue to do is to live each day as if it were my last because the sad truth is, it could be. We are offered various choices during this life that may alter our life. There is no point wasting any of our precious time on anything or anyone that dulls our light or decreases the happiness that we all deserve.

Happiness is not an illusion, but it is a choice. Of course, life can be challenging, difficult, complicated, unfair, and overwhelming. The unpleasant times do not have to consume or dictate our lives. Overcoming and never surrendering when life gets complicated takes strength, courage, dedication, and resilience we were unaware we had because we were blinded by the negativity and struggles, we feel we are drowning in. Sometimes when so many difficulties are thrown our way, it may not be easy to keep our heads above the strong currents that are pulling us down.

Each of us is simply a perfectly imperfect human being that is doing the best we can to survive in this insane and unpredictable world.  Every choice we make in life has a consequence that we must live with and learn from. Considering happiness is a choice we can all make, it is crucial to know what brings the most happiness and what is exhausting and drains all the happiness we can feel from our hearts, minds, and souls.

Constant negativity and hate can be extremely contagious. We have all heard that misery loves company, but we can choose to not engage and remove this type of emotion from our lives. Why does it only have to be that misery loves company and why can it not be happiness and love loves company? If we are going to allow something to spread so wildly, why can this not be something positive that makes our lives and the world a better place?

Unfortunately, we all can see what is going on in the world because it is plastered all over the news daily. We have witnessed the levels of hate grossly increase, which is extremely sad. The world we live in should be easily shared as this planet was around for billions of years before humans existed. Our planet has gone through many challenges but has been able to restore and repair itself without humans and could easily do it again if we do not make positive changes. There have been many natural disasters, which I think maybe Mother Nature, trying to warn us to behave better and respect the planet more. Even after numerous warnings, humans are continuing to be selfish and disrespectful to one another and our planet.

I started this post about happiness but got into some side topics. Do you know what brings you the most happiness in life and what tries to devour your joys? This should be a simple question, but it can become a little complicated. I am not sure what part is more difficult, knowing exactly what brings happiness or what tries to destroy it because some people are more concerned with pleasing others and neglect their feelings and needs.

I am very interested to learn if you know what brings you happiness or if you are a people pleaser that is more concerned with others’ happiness or if you are somewhere in between but may lean more towards one direction. Do you know of anything or anyone that tries to destroy your happiness? Honestly, I am somewhere in between but I do lean more toward being more concerned with others being happy😊. I do know what makes me happy and am completely aware of what tries to destroy it. Considering how aware I am of things and people that try to demolish my happiness, I do my best to remove and avoid them because it is easier than confrontation. For me though, it can be the simplest things in my life that provide me with the most happiness.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I look forward to reading your comments and learning what brings you happiness😊! I missed blogging for a few days because of the mini vacation for my husband’s birthday. I am hoping to be able to get back on track with my posts. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
