Happy Long Weekend!

Good morning FriendsHappy Friday Y’all! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to the much deserved long weekend! Don’t you think if we had these long weekends more often, maybe even once a month that would be absolutely wonderful? I think it is the anticipation of the long weekend that makes the week just drag by or maybe it was also because of all the extremely frustrating pain I was dealing with. Who knows, but I am leaving that in the past and just looking forward to a relaxing and enjoyable long weekend not dwelling on work or my pain issues! Thinking  nothing but positive thoughts that next week will be much better after 3 entire days of rest💤!!

Do y’all have any exciting plans for the long weekend🌼? I am literally over the moon🌜 excited that I will not hear the piercing sound of my alarm clock at that absolutely awful hour of 💤5:30 am!! I still think that is a pretty inhumane time for anything to make such rude and obnoxious sound, but if my alarm went off to music🎶 I would probably ignore it, unless it was a terrible song and that would just make me terribly mad! So, I guess it is really a no win situation for that poor pitiful alarm!

If there is anything that I do over this long and glorious weekend it will not only rest💤 my poor achy body, but spend time with family💞! It is so important to cherish our families as dont-give-up-galaxy-hold-on-hope-Favim.com-1428490sadly, they will not be around forever! Enjoying special and memorable moments can be so good for the heart and soul! I have a very small family, which makes it a little easier to be able to see everyone and not have to drive long distances. Unfortunately, my mother does work the weekends, but maybe we can get together for lunch on Monday, considering I will not be at work🌟!!!

I hope you have a wonderful and not busy Friday! I always appreciate you taking a moment to visit my site and I love❤ reading your comments! The absolute best thing about this Friday is that I am not already dreading Monday!! As always, I am sending you LOTS of ❤love and comfort!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

Half Way There!

Wednesday SmileGood morning Y’all! It may not be where you are living, but so far where I live it has been a 🌧rainy week with no end in sight. I thought a happy thought this morning would make y’all smile, even it is just for a momen that is worth it for me. I want y’all to have happy days!

Y’all already know that I have been experiencing a lot of pain for over a week now, so you know the rain is not going to help that at all! I will hold onto my hopes for some pretty sunny days in my future! I think that ☀sunshine brings so much happiness to our lives and it gives us all some natural Vitamin D which is good for our health! 

I know I have already asked you this before, but I am needing your amazing advice please! Do any of you know of any good leg stretches that may help my leg issues? I am willing to try just about anything in order to get some kind of relief!

I hope y’all have a wonderful day and hope you are feeling great! As always I am sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Happy Friday!

GoodmorningwishesonFridaypictures3-compressedGood morning Y’all! I hope you had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to a beautiful weekend! It is amazing how fast the weather has changed from being pretty chilly, to sunshine and warmth! I am so thankful for the natural vitamin D the sunshine has to offer us all, I just hope y’all get to enjoy this as well!

I try to not make too many plans over the weekend and just use weekends as restful time. We spend the entire week dedicated to our jobs and often neglect ourselves, so the two days we get for the weekend should be spent doing what makes us happy❤! I also avoid making plans for the weekend because I never know how I am going to be feeling so instead of disappointing others, it is just best to play things by ear! If myself and my husband are both feeling well we can set up something that we want to do, but if one or both of us is not feeling our best we do not have to do anything at all! It works for us and most people do understand this! 

I made a decision today that I am going to try my best to increase the hours I work each failure not an optionday from 6 to 7 hours starting Monday. I am hopeful that I will be successful with this goal, but if for some reason I am not I will not be too hard on myself and just keep trying. I think it is extremely important to set goals and try your hardest to achieve those goals, but also not beat yourself up if it does not work out on the first try! Not achieving goals you set is not failure, giving up is the only way to really fail yourself! 

I hope y’all wake up and feel great today so you can enjoy your Friday! Maybe feeling well on Friday will pave the path for a fabulous weekend! I certainly hope y’all are feeling great today and I hope you have a wonderful day! Remember to be easy on yourself and take care of your needs everything else will just fall into place! I always appreciate you visiting my site and value your comments which I will always respond to as quickly as I can! Never forget that I am always sending y’all lots of love and comfort!

Happy Start to the Weekend!

Have a nice FridayGood morning and Happy Friday to y’all!! I hope your week has been great and you are looking forward to a weekend filled with all the things that bring you so much joy😊. So many of us devote so much of our precious time to our jobs, which really invades our time to enjoy life! I know some people really love their jobs❤, but there are many others that just go to work every day for a means to survive and care for families. I congratulate those individuals that are honored enough to love going to their jobs for 40 hours a week or more and do not view their job like so many other do, which is as a burden and a nuisance. But regardless if you love, like, tolerate or hate your job, we all can appreciate the weekend and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

The great things about the weekends are you do not have to worry about being somewhere on time or going to bed early enough to ensure a good night’s sleep. But honestly one of the best things about the weekend is that obnoxious and intrusive alarm clock⏰ will not make loud noises early in the morning! I have such an incredible distaste for alarm clocks, I somehow typically mange to wake before the alarm goes off, so I get to avoid that troubling sound! But it gets even worse than that! If I must heat food in the microwave, I will never allow for the beeping to go off, it sounds way too much like an alarm clock and is just irritating! Are there any noises that makes your skin crawl and drives you completely mad?

sunI hope wherever you live, you will enjoy nice weather this weekend! The sun has been playing hide and seek lately, but according to the weather channel where I live is finally anticipating some natural vitamin d this weekend and I am absolutely thrilled! I hope you have a marvelous day and a very lovely weekend! As always, I am sending y’all lots of love and comfort everyday!

Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentines DayHappy Valentine’s Day to all! I might be wrong, but I do not believe we need a holiday to show our significant other that we love them. It seems like Valentine’s Day has become more of a consumerism day to buy cards, flowers, jewelry, balloons and candy when it was supposed to be all about love! My husband and I do not need a designated day to show how we feel about each other, we show our love and appreciation for one another every day of the year!

Valentine’s Day can also be a sad day for some. What about those who have lost a loved one recently? Or what about those whose relationship has come to a bitter end? Or those that are single and are not going home to a loved one? I am not saying we need to hide our love for our significant others to shelter those that are not enjoying Valentine’s Day, but we should not go to huge extremes on only one day to prove our love. images

I truly hope y’all have had a good day! I do not mean to sound so anti Valentine’s Day, I just feel pretty strong that love should be shown and felt everyday of the year! I do my best to always make sure my husband knows just how much he means to me and he does the same!

Thank you for stopping by my site today and reading my thoughts. Whether you agree or disagree with me, I would love to hear your own thoughts about Valentine’s Day. Is it a holiday that you love or hate? I am sending each and every one of you lots of love and comfort, everyday not just today!!

Positivity can be motivating!

challenges-make-life-interesting.pngThroughout our lives we are faced with many challenges. At times we may feel defeated by these challenges when in fact they are making us stronger. It is often very difficult to see the bright side of a bad situation because everything seems so dark and hopeless. But I do believe in some way these trials that leave us questioning life are building our strength for the next step in life.

In my opinion it takes a lot more energy to stay negative than it does to be positive. I am also a firm believer that positive thoughts can change our lives for the best! Whatever our struggles are in life we were dealt this hand for a reason. One reason without a doubt is we are strong enough to handle it! Maybe we were meant to help others that might be having a difficult time accepting the same ordeal. We might be offer sound advice or offer a lending handle to someone in need.

Many people each day are being given life altering news that they are trying to learn to cope with. More than likely the news is causing some fear and anxiety in their lives. Most of us have experienced this before and we probably have people in our lives currently dealing with something similar. It is astonishing how much a phone call or doctor’s visit can change your life completely. It is in times of bad news where having a positive attitude can be very beneficial.garden

Life will never change if you spend all of your time focusing on the negative aspects life can have. Negativity can be emotionally and physically draining. Please tell me if you feel different, but I find that when I am down and negative I feel so much worse. I can remember back when my flare up started in October, I was so down about it and felt so cynical about everything I hardly wanted to get off the couch. During my pessimistic time, my condition did not improve at all but persistently got worse causing me so much additional pain. Now that I am thinking with a more optimistic mind, I am starting to feel better each day. I still face a terrible amount of pain daily but it could be much worse than it is now.   

It is so important to always remember the good things in your life. Try taking a few End day positiveminutes everyday to appreciate your life and what you love! Sometimes all it takes is enjoying the simple pleasures our lives offer to bring us happiness!

Thank you for stopping by to read and comment on my thoughts for today! I hope y’all had a great day and are staying warm. Continue holding onto your positive thoughts and fantastic outlooks on life. It really is amazing just how much these happy and positive views can impact your life for the better! Much love y’all!

Always, Alyssa

Chilly Sunday

Sunday 1Sunday can be such a nice relaxing day, until you realized tomorrow is Monday. I am really not ready to start another work week so soon! But, it is good to look at another Monday as fresh start to a new week that is full of possibilities! Regardless of the chances for great things to occur, I do not look forward to that nagging alarm going off!

Sometimes weekends are a time to catch up with family, friends and do all the things you were not able to do during the week. But, sometimes weekends are a great time to just catch up with yourself. After we spend all week in an office, it is so wonderful to not have any expectations for a couple of days. I like weekends when there are not any plans made, no expected or unexpected visitors, no must do items and I can do things on my time without watching a clock like I do during the week. Sometimes I think the clock is the enemy and is just there to control us!

This next week I am planning on trying to push myself a little more. I do feel as though I am getting much better and stronger. I do still have a ton of pain but it is almost pain I can handle. Most days now I am not experiencing the pain that would literally bring medak_you_are_braver_than_ to tears. I am still coping with the relentless back and leg pain but there is no use crying over it because that will not help at all! I have made the decision to ignore to irritating pain and keep doing what I want to do and what needs to be done! Making the decision that I am stronger than the pain and the MS is a smart way to handle things!

I hope y’all are feeling well and handle a fantastic weekend! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday as you prepare for an exciting Monday! Okay, I know there is not many people out there that believe Monday’s are exciting but at least it is another day to live your life to the fullest! 

Thank you for visiting and reading my short thoughts for the day! I always welcome and appreciate your comments and will always respond as quickly as I can! No matter what happens in life continue to stay positive, you may not be able to see the difference right away but it makes for positive changes! Much love y’all!!

Always, Alyssa
