Motivational Monday

It is hard to believe, that we are back to the start of the week again. It always seems like the weekends fly by so fast, but the weeks drag by like a snail in quicksand. We just have to make it through five days and then the weekend will return, I just hope the week is not full of stress and utter nonsense again, but let’s face it if it is there is not much we can do to change it. We always need to try our best to handle the challenges of the week with dignity and grace, and never allow anyone to steal our happiness.

After we let the relaxation of the weekend go and strive to manage through the week with motivation and strength, we could all use a little extra guidance on a Monday morning. I hope you find the quote I shared today motivating and it provides you with the strength we all need to begin the week. Considering the weeks have been increasingly stressful for me, I decided that I am not going to agree to do any overtime because my mental well-being is more important than a few extra dollars! We cannot avoid the workweek, but we can adjust how we handle our work and ways to prevent additional stress!

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and you are ready for the new week. Please remember that you are important and to never allow anyone to ruin your day and cause you stress because it just is not worth it. When people are unhappy in their lives, they seem to want to bring others down and make them miserable. We have all heard that misery loves company, but we deserve to be melancholy. Instead of letting anyone bring you down, try to keep a smile on your face, know your worth, and bring the other person up to your level!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed this post and you gained a little extra motivation. I hope your day is full of amazing and well-deserved opportunities, and little to no stress. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as soon 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

I think looking at today as Thursday, makes it feel like the week is not almost over. This is why I prefer saying it is Friday Eve! My week has been exhausting and it is not over yet. Thankfully, I was able to talk with one of my co-workers yesterday that was in training with me and she said she was feeling just as discouraged as I have been feeling. I hate that someone else feels this way, but it does make me feel better to know I am not the only one. I was starting to think it was just me and maybe I was not understanding something.

We do still have at least one more day left of this week and we could all probably use a pick-me-up to make us feel happier. We try so hard in life and sometimes we might feel like it is not enough, but as long as we are trying it is plenty. We will never be perfect because perfect does not exist, but we can still be happy! I believe perfection is just an illusion and can never be reached. All striving for perfection is going to do is drain our energy and self-esteem. The only thing we are able to do is be our perfectly imperfect self😊!

Of course, my week has been long and a little frustrating but I am thankful to have a job working from home. Although I do deal with aggravating and demanding people a lot, I do get to talk with some really great people. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to talk with two great people. The last lady told me I have made her experience much better and it made her want to do further business with my company! The funny part is, I was just honest and myself with her. I am always upfront with customers because I believe that is the way business “should” be!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote helps you through the last part of this week. I know it is not easy, but try to not allow anyone to bring you down. Most people that have a negative attitude are angry with their own life and want to bring others down. You know what they say, misery loves company, but that is not the company you want part of. 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!

Mid-Week Inspiration

Instead of thinking of today as simply Wednesday, let us think of it as the halfway point to the weekend. I guess thinking of it as another day of the week makes it feel like the week is not almost over because thankfully, the week is almost over. We are so much closer to the weekend than we were yesterday, right? I have honestly been ready for the weekend since Monday morning, which says a lot about how my weeks have been! I think sometimes we all just need a break from reality and life but rarely get it. Most of the time, weekends are the closest we get to get a break.

Somehow, we have made it through half of the week and only have a few days left. Even with that said, I think we all could benefit from a little inspiration. I hope the quote I am sharing today will offer you inspiration, comfort, and a positive outlook on life! We are only given one life to live, so no matter what happens we need to make the most of it. Even though we all encounter struggles, we are also provided with many memorable and joyful times. During our hard times, we need to hold on to the joys and live every day to the fullest.

I hope your week has been wonderful and you are not being held down by the stresses life can bring on us. We have all heard this before, but stress is a silent killer. Many of the things we find stressful and not worth our time and nothing would change no matter what we did. There are things we have control over, but the truth is, we only have control over what we do. We cannot control how others are going to behave and must avoid the extra negativity.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and I look forward to reading your comments. I will respond to all comments 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 was not until yesterday, that overtime was offered at work again. I remember how insane it was last week when I said I would work overtime and swore I would not do it again, but I, of course, agreed to work the long 10 hours days again and four hours on Saturday. I am a glutton for punishment, but I am sure it will pay off, or at least that is what I will keep telling myself. The way I view things is, that I work from home and do not do anything else, so why not work for a little extra money?

Thankfully, we have almost survived the week and the weekend is almost here. I am glad the weekend is almost back, even though I am working a few hours on Saturday. After how long the week has already felt, I think we could all use a little pick-me-up and I hope the quote I am sharing provides that to you. Although I think this quote is uplifting and encouraging because it is incredibly true, I would love to know what you think.

Do you have any plans for the weekend? Besides working on Saturday, I do not think anything else is going on. I am 90% sure, my husband works all weekend, but things change with his job randomly. I hope work on Saturday is not too terribly, but things happen and it will all be okay. Life happens and things can be unpleasant, but I believe the outcome is all in the way we handle it. We all have a choice in how we approach different situations.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week has been wonderful and the final day is even better. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as soon as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Thankful for Tuesday

Good morning Tuesday! I have NEVER been so happy that Monday is gone and it is a new day! Yesterday felt more like a direct punishment, instead of an ordinary Monday. I woke up with a massive migraine and it NEVER got any better. The only good thing was it did not get worst, but it sure did not improve and I had to work all day long. The things that typically help my migraines improve did not help at all. It was not even noon and I had already taken 8 Advil, so I could not take anymore☹.

For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from nasty migraines. Of course, because of my Multiple Sclerosis, I deal with pain 24/7, but migraines are the only pain I cannot deal with. I told my husband yesterday it felt like someone was drilling nonstop inside my head. It was not the best way to start the week, but hopefully, I will not get any more of these nightmares headaches for a long time.

There is one day of this week over and there are several more we have to get through. Considering yesterday was so miserable, hopefully, the rest of the week is better. I am not sure how in the world I managed to make it through an eight-hour workday with the nasty migraine, but I did. How was your day yesterday? I sincerely hope your week began better than mine did and your days get even better until the weekend returns!

Thank you for visiting my site today. Even though it was a post about my mean migraine, I hope you found it interesting and a little inspiring. I look forward to reading your comments 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!

Mid-Week Inspiration

I think we should celebrate today because we are halfway through the week! The even better news is, we are much closer to the weekend! I hope your week has been good and you are not allowing yourself to become overly stressed because it does not fix anything. We are all going through something in our lives and we deal with those issues in our way. There is not anyone that can say what the best way is, so we must keep doing the best we can because, in the end, that is all we can do!

Has this week been challenging? Of course, it has been. If you are anything like me, I tend to second guess myself and overthink things to the point I convinced myself I did something wrong. Overthinking things in life is not necessary because as long as we are following our instincts, we will not be wrong. We already survived two days this week, but we have two more to go before the weekend returns and I think we need to find ways to keep moving forward. I hope you will find the quote I am sharing inspirational and it helps you through the next few days! Do yourself a favor and try to not overthink things too much and follow your heart and instincts, they will not deceive you!

I cannot speak for everyone, but this week has felt extremely long. I think everything that can go wrong has gone wrong and because I let myself feel too much stress, I have had increased pain. I can typically deal with pain well, but it has been exceptionally awful this week. I know part of it is because I get uptight learning the new job and end up being harder on myself than I should be. I guess we live and learn, and hopefully change our ways for the better!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you have a wonderful day! Do what you can to keep yourself focused on the weekend and not become overwhelmed by the days. Stay strong and calm when faced with turmoil because better days are near! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Survived Monday- Happy Tuesday

Good morning Tuesday! Somehow we survived Monday, so it can only get better now! I was nervous about this week because our training group started live orders. I am happy to say, it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. Honestly, yesterday was easier than any of our training days. I think being able to do the actual work and not in a training atmosphere made things clear and a lot more logical. It seems like I was making things a lot harder than necessary and was overthinking things too much. There was one point where I had to ask if I was doing things correctly because it seemed too easy.

Hopefully, we are all off to a great start to the week and you had a wonderful Monday. Successfully surviving the hardest day of the week is a good sign. Even though we did survive yesterday, we have a few more days to get through. I think today, we could use a little inspiration and I hope the quote I am sharing will inspire you and make you smile😊! No one wants to feel like they have failed anything, but sometimes we need to fail before we can know success.

Life can be challenging, but I do believe every challenge makes us stronger. We face many different issues during life and between the issues and challenges we encounter we learn additional valuable lessons that make us who we are. We should always be proud of who we have grown to be and also try to be understanding of situations others are dealing with.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared today and I look forward to reading your comments. I promise to respond to your brilliant comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have a great day and you continue to stay safe! 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! Some people think of today as Thursday, but that just makes the week seem longer to me. I think Friday eve makes the week feel a little shorter. This has been my second week back working full-time. Working full-time and learning something new has been exhausting. I know in time what I am doing will feel like second nature and easy, but right now there is SO much to learn. The weather today will not help me feel more alive because it is going to be raining. I know we need rain for life to grow in nature, but it makes every part of me hurt twice as bad.

We have almost made it through the week and the weekend will be here soon, but we do have one final day to survive and I think we could use a pick-me-up! I hope the quote I am sharing with you will offer you the pick-me-up needed and a little inspiration! With everything we deal with in life, it is not always easy to be strong. However, the stress and challenges we face are not going to last forever and there will come a day when life is easier! Keep your head held high and keep fighting because better days are ahead for all of us😊!

I am doing my best to fight through the fatigue I feel and do at least one post each day. I think it makes it easier because I enjoy writing, so it gives me the inspiration to push forward. Once I clock out of work, I do need to take a break from the computer and the cats need attention. It makes me smile😊 when they are so happy to see me and act like they have not seen a human in decades. They might be a little dramatic😊!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the quote I shared lifted your spirits and helps you survive the last day of this week. I look forward to reading your comments 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!

The Power of Writing

Writing can be an incredibly powerful way to express our emotions and help us come to terms with any given situation. It is a personal and silent way to overcome challenges and emotional pain. We can be inspired by reading the works of others and learning from the way they compose and arrange their thoughts. Viewing and trying to understand the processes of writers, whether they are well-known successful authors or someone who has a love and passion for writing can be thought-provoking and fascinating. Reading what others write seems like a window into their minds and experiences.

The amount of famous and struggling authors is endless, most of which are extremely talented, and others may take a while to catch our attention. We have certain things we enjoy reading and become captivated by the abilities and styles of different authors. Each person that writes has a unique way to put their thoughts together, which is what can make this so intriguing to discover.

Some writers create magnificent masterpieces from their personal experiences, and some come from an incredibly strong and vivid imagination. Are these talents embedded into people from birth or does it come from a supernatural encounter? I understand it takes time, hard work, dedication, and determination, but the talents some authors possess are beyond words phenomenal.

Which authors do you find yourself drawn to and view as the most engaging? I have three authors that I view as the most appealing and they all have different styles. These authors are James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, and Kelly Rimmer. Out of these three authors, Nicholas Sparks and Kelly Rimmer are more emotional and write from their heart, which can bring someone to tears with their words. Although I do enjoy books from all three of them, James Patterson is the one I am most drawn to because his books keep me on the edge of my seat and unable to put the book down because I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Are there authors you find inspiring and would have a desire to meet someday? Personally, I view James Patterson’s abilities as the most inspiring and would love the chance to meet him and learn how he creates his amazing novels. His series “The Women’s Murder Club” is brilliant. There are currently 22 books in this series, which several years ago I read the first four in about one month. I was unable to put the book down because they were so gripping and riveting. I was slightly obsessed with the books, so there were many times I would read more while I was working, but we will not tell my former manager about that😊!

If I was able to meet and speak with James Patterson it would be a dream come true. The way his mind works is an outstanding gift that no matter how hard I try cannot comprehend. Of course, I can understand he is one of a kind and there will never be another like him. Hopefully, someday this dream will come to fruition, and I can gain some knowledge from this clever author.

Some books are easy to listen to, but others are so engrossing you need to read them so that you do not miss anything. I found that I am unable to listen to any of James Patterson’s books. Maybe it has something to do with the voice of the narrator, but I think there must be a deeper reason that I cannot explain.

I have mentioned in a previous post that my late grandfather wrote for his local paper. As I have said before, he was an amazing man and like myself, he loved to write. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to read much of what he wrote, but I do hope someday I will be able to. Without reading a word of what he wrote, I know it was brilliant and a great read. I am sure he wrote a lot about golf because he was a golf pro and even though I would not understand what he was saying about golf, I still hope to read anything he wrote. I do wonder if somehow, I got my love for writing from my amazing grandfather!

I am interested to know what types of books you enjoy reading and which authors pull you into their magical web. Do you have any blogs that inspire you and which ones do so? Authors do not have to be well-known and famous because I believe anyone that writes is an author in their own way. I have read that many authors also write in a journal, which I assume is a way to connect with their emotions without having anyone read it. I am sure many bloggers also journal as well to write about things they do not want to share, which makes a lot of sense to me. There are several things I will journal about and never blog about because they are issues, I am not comfortable sharing.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have written, and I hope you will leave a comment. It will be interesting to know what you enjoy reading and what authors inspire you. I hope your weekend is starting well and the rest of the weekend is wonderful. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
