Sunday Funday!

Sunday afternoonGood afternoon y’all! I hope your weekend is going well and you are feeling great! I think y’all already know it hasn’t been easy for me working a full-time job, doing all the things women do daily and finding proper time to blog. It isn’t possible for me to do posts daily because by the time I get out of work and home, I am exhausted and probably can’t put together a coherent sentence!

I am currently still able to do my Motivational Monday and Pick-Me-Up Thursday posts, but I really want to find time for more. I do find that blogging helps keep my 1_istDPi4WxGiNYEYHLNB00wstress-levels to a normal point or at least slightly healthier. It is an amazing feeling to be able to get what I am thinking out, without any interruptions or feeling like I am bothering someone by venting. Y’all at least have the option to not read what I write, but of course I appreciate that you do!!

It has been about a month and a half since my husband and I moved and I started a new job. I can say without any hesitation at all that my new job is great and worlds better than where I came from! The people I work with sincerely care about what they are doing to help take a chanceothers in the community, which is one huge reason why  my personality is a great fit for this job! The new city is beautiful as well and so much better than where we moved from! Of course my drive into work is very short, which is another great thing! Even the stores I have been to seem more enjoyable! Overall, I can say that this move we made together was a great decision! I guess sometimes we just need throw our hands up to fate and take a chance with a new journey, it really can create wonderful things that can bring lots of happiness that was missing previously!

I hope you enjoy your last weekend day to the fullest and do what brings you the most happiness! Please remember, I am always sending y’all LOTS of ❤ love, comfort and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Featured Image -- 7497Good morning y’all! I hope you had a nice restful weekend and you are ready to start a new week with positive thoughts! This is the last weekend that I will have to work all week and then finish up some left over moving, I am looking forward to a weekend that I will be able to just rest and enjoy the new house!

I am sure y’all heard about the devastation Hurricane Michael did last week to a few. The havoc those in Florida experienced is truly heartbreaking to me. Personally, I know several people who live in Florida and even sending hopethough they lost so much, they didn’t lose their lives which is SO important. Houses and personal belongings can be replaced, but lives can’t be replaced. Please, help me with sending hopeful and loving ❤ thoughts/prayers to all those that were affected by Hurricane Michael. I feel like many are in need this and if we join together we can help with our thoughts.❤❤ 

The quote I want to share with y’all today has a lot of meaning to me and I really hope you find some meaning and hope in it. We all go through difficult and dark times in life, which often allows us to forget there is a light out there that will help us through.beautiful butterfly

Two weeks has past!

Time-for-an-UpdateGood evening y’all! It is incredibly hard to believe that it has already been two weeks since my husband and I uprooted our lives by moving to a new state and city! Two weeks ago when we made this change I was terrified about the decision we had made, but now I couldn’t be happier we made this fabulous move! I think the new city and my new job have done so much for the sanity I still had left and my massive stress-levels. The new city is a little smaller than where we were living and so far the people are a lot nicer.

My new job has so far been absolutely amazing and the people are SO very kind, which is a huge change for me. I mean don’t get me wrong, there were a few people at the old job that were great, but the bad definitely out-weighed the good there. My new boss is an older man who stays very busy with good things comenumerous meetings and tasks, but when he is in the office he is super kind and willing to answer any questions I might have. So far, my job has been very interesting! I have been learning about what my job entails and how to maintain a schedule for the VP of Finance. There is so much more to this job that I am very excited to learn. I am thrilled that I am going to be traveling with a co-worker for a week of training out of the state. This training will make me become a Certified Housing Counselor. I am looking forward to the chance to build relationships with the home buyers and feel that I will be able to offer a lot of compassion and understanding during a stressful time for them.

I work with so many incredibly nice and understanding people. Of course they only have one name to remember, where I have about 20. Thankfully, everyone is extremely understanding when I have to ask their name again, which has really only happened once or twice. empathy

The moving process was stressful and a lot of hard work, which caused me a great deal of fatigue and pain. I wasn’t the best with resting because I just wanted everything done and organized immediately, which is impossible. It has only been recently I decided that we have plenty of time to get things situated in the new home. There doesn’t need to be a rush on things because thankfully time is on our side with the new house. The only thing that is important  and time sensitive is we MUST get our old home ready to be sold and hopefully sold sooner than later! I look forward to the day we get a phone call saying we have an offer on the house! I am logical enough to understand it will take time before the townhouse actually sells.

As y’all already know, I am trying to find my way to continue blogging because I really do love it, while working a full-time job, which I haven’t done in a long time. This process is afinding-my-way-text-893x1024 trial and error situation, but I am determined to make this happen! I know many people probably will never not fully understand this, but I find writing and blogging a great way to reduce any stress I am feeling. I think most of y’all already know that I battle with stress issues, but I am working to improve this. I think being a walking/talking stress case for 37 years is long enough and now it is time to change my ways.

I do believe that my new job is improving my stress because it is a wonderful place to work. Please know, I am working on getting caught up with reading and commenting on your posts, while also working on my own blogging thoughts. I appreciate all the encouraging words y’all have shared with me over the past weeks and I am looking 6a014e601f2a5b970c014e887a4cfb970d-600wiforward to getting back to a semi-schedule with my site.

I hope y’all have had a great day and I really hope you are feeling well. I am honestly struggling with some pain issues at the moment, but it is possible it is due to the rainy weather☔. I know it is going to be rainy for a few days with the hurricane heading towards Florida and even though I am a few states away from Florida, we are still expecting a lot of rain🌧. My body doesn’t appreciate or tolerate rain very well, but I am going to keep a strong hold on positive thoughts because I think that is important. In a matter of days the rain will pass and hopefully the weather will be calm!

I want to thank you for visiting my site this evening and I do hope you have a lovely evening! I will do my very best to respond to any of your comments as quickly as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

Never stop believing in hope!

hope-quotes-wallpaperI think in the world today, it can be very easy to give up hope. There does seem to be so much negativity and hatred surfacing daily, but not allowing these thoughts into our lives is possible! As long as we keep only those around us who offer happiness and nothing but optimism, we all could spread those emotions instead of negativity. If enough believe in love❤ and hope, we could out power the hate.

It could be easy for me or anyone else that lives with a chronic illness to want to give up any hope for a cure. Living with any illness that causes daily pain is without a doubt frustrating, hope-quotes-about-life-09especially when it seems to be never-ending. Being required to take numerous medications several times a day to slow any progression down, is not any fun! Making decisions of what the right medications are is like playing a game of Russian Roulette, you never know what the outcome is going to be. All of this takes determination to beat the odds and hopefully win the game of life!

Making decisions on what the right medications will be for yourself is extremely difficult. This takes having a lot of confidence in your choices. It also takes doing a lot of research on the medications to choose from. Since being diagnosed with Multiple hope seeing brightSclerosis 18 years ago, I have been on numerous different types of medications that are meant to slow the progression down. The first several were not right for me and I was able to move onto something different. The great thing is, none of the medications need to be permanent if they do not work well with your body chemistry, you are able to keep moving on with something else. This process was frustrating for me, but I never gave up hope that something would work well for me. Thankfully, I had a very understanding and tolerant doctor during this time which helped me make the best decisions!

I want to share a blog post from a fabulous fellow blogger❤ with y’all. Jenny at https://trippingthroughtreacle.com has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for many years and still keeps up her fight! I always find everything Jenny shares to be beyond amazing and she continues to give me hope for better times. I want to share with you her recent post because it was so brilliant and very informative https://trippingthroughtreacle.com/2018/09/07/multiple-sclerosis-and-its-symptoms/#comment-1981. This post alone will make you want to read even more of 2-19-life-1024x792Jenny’s posts!

As difficult as life gets, we all have the choice to hold onto HOPE! If we continue believing, HOPE will never die! We have a choice to challenge the potential for continuing to better ourselves and even all around us. 

Thank y’all for visiting my site this morning. I always appreciate your support and love to read your comments! I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and you are feeling well! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!
