Halfway there!

The great thing about Wednesday is it means we are halfway through the week and only have the other half to make it through before the weekend returns! Of course, I understand the first half of the week may have been challenging, but the last part of the week will be much easier, or at least that is what I keep telling myself😊. The power of the mind is a powerful thing, so if we believe hard enough, maybe we can believe it into reality😊!

I know I mentioned earlier that I took Friday off from work for my birthday! I found out yesterday that we are going to be working 10-hour days for the rest of the week. I think it was pure luck I decided to not work on my birthday because working for 10 long hours on my birthday would have been awful!!!! My workday on Monday was pretty terrible because I had a customer yell at me, not just once, but twice. I am not sure how I managed to keep my composure, but I did😊. I will never understand why people think it is best to yell and insult another person when they are not getting their way because that is the worst way to deal with it!

It is knowing we are halfway through the week that is a good feeling but at the same time a little distressing. I think we could all use a little inspiration, just to get through the rest of the week. When working 8 or more hours a day and feeling exhausted, it can be difficult to stay focused because the week is nearly over. I really love the quote I am sharing with you today and hope that it inspires you to survive the remainder of this week. I think it can help to focus MORE on the opportunities we are offered and MUCH less time focusing on the problems that arise each day. 

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and hope you found the quote inspiring. Today will be a good day and we might just need to continue repeating it every few minutes, whatever it takes😊! 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

Inspirational Wednesday

Happy mid-week! Thankfully, it is Wednesday, which means the week is already halfway over and we just have to get through the last part of it before the weekend returns. The first half of the week was okay, but I am hoping the last part is much better. How has your week been? I am not sure about you, but I cannot believe September is almost over. Seriously, where did the month go and how did it go by so quickly?

Even though we have survived the first half of the week, we do still need to find a way to get through the final part of the week. Of course, the weeks do feel long, but the good news is this week is nearly over. I think we could use a little inspiration to help us through the next couple of days. I hope you feel the inspiration in the quote that I am sharing with you today. I think we can easily forget how much power we have within us. It is even easier to forget how to love and forgive ourselves, but this is extremely important to learn to do. Once we learn to love and forgive ourselves, we need to continue to do this for the rest of our lives.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and look forward to reading your comments. I promise to respond to all of your amazing comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday and the rest of your week is even better than the first part of the week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pain Sucks!

It is an undeniable fact that pain for lack of better words sucks! Of course, I, unfortunately, have some form of pain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, but I somehow manage to deal with it without becoming too homicidal (most of the time at least😊). No matter how frequently we are inflicted with pain, there is typically one kind we find to be unbearable. Do you experience any type of pain that is so miserable, that you would not wish it on your worst enemy?

Of course, the pain that is always present in my mid to lower back is not easy, I can normally ignore it. The neuropathic issues residing in my legs can be a challenge, but I have learned to live with them. Then the issue with what I believe is plantar fasciitis is extremely unpleasant and as much as I do not want to, I can deal with it. The only type of pain I find nearly impossible is any pain that is in my head, which includes headaches, migraines, and tooth pain because they all nearly send me over the edge.

For the past several days I have had a tooth that has been getting increasingly awful. Of course, I do know what I need to call my dentist to make an appointment. The problem with making this call is I have what some would call an irrational fear of the dentist and I know they are going to want to pull the tooth. I have had this fear of the dentist for as long as I can remember, and I am unsure where it comes from. Yes, I do believe most dentists have the personality of a gnat and they seem to enjoy causing people pain with all their little drills. I once asked one of my former dentists if he was bullied when he was younger and that is why he became a dentist so he could legally cause people pain.

Although my fear of every dentist is very intense, I do know I need to call to make an appointment soon. I am also aware the pain from pulling a tooth will be uncomfortable, it probably will not last as long as I think and will eventually stop and then my tooth will not hurt because it will be gone. Maybe if I put the tooth under my pillow the tooth fairy will come and be very generous because I conquered my dentist fears😊! Seriously though, this pain is so miserable I do not believe I would wish it on my worst enemy and the person I think is the evilest and most immoral person in the entire world, well honestly, I do think it is something he might deserve😊!

I hope you are having a good week. The good news is, we are halfway through this insanely long week! I am not sure why this week has felt so long, but it has been overly busy, and people are more demanding. I am sure one reason this week has felt so long to me is the terrible pain I am dealing with, but I hope that pain will end soon. One phone call and I am sure the evil dentist will help the pain go away, but not before causing me more pain first! We have survived the first part of the week and just have the last few days until the weekend returns. I hope the quote I am sharing with you provides you with enough inspiration to get through the last two days of this week!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you and the quote inspires you to push through the last part 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!

Inspirational Wednesday

Happy mid-week, the halfway point in our short week means we are much closer to the weekend returning. How has your week been going so far? The good news is that we only have a couple of days left before we are back to the peaceful times of the weekend, so I think we can handle it😊! I am going to try to do a post every day this week because it helps me to unwind and come to terms with the stresses of the week. I am hoping to not miss a day of posts and that the week is not too incredibly stressful!

Even though it is a short week, the days can become stressful and we can lose hope for better days. At the halfway point in the week, I think we can all benefit from an inspirational quote, which I hope will inspire you and help you through the rest of the week. Oftentimes, the only thing that helps me through the pain of multiple sclerosis and the stresses of life our the love and compassion of my loving husband and adorable cats. After a long day watching the way our cats play with one another is hilarious and always makes me laugh😊. It amazes me how animals love without any expectations or ulterior motives and are so forgiving!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found the quote inspiring. I hope you are having a good week and it will only get better over the next couple days. 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!

Halfway to the weekend!

Thankfully, we have made it to the halfway point of this week. How has your week been up until now? I hope your week is going well and you are excited we are getting closer to a long weekend, which I know we all need😊! I do not have anything planned for the long weekend but am looking forward to not waking up early for three days! Honestly, my week has been a little frustrating, so I am in desperate need of a break. My frustrations this week surprisingly enough have not been working-related!

I am curious when you get extremely frustrated and belligerently angry, how do you handle those awful feelings? Considering my damn truck decided to give me a hard time once again and NOT start, I was furious Monday night. I think it is probably just that I need a new battery and maybe the other week when the truck was acting up it was trying to give me an indication of the issue, but it was infuriating because I was trying to go to the pharmacy when it would not start. To avoid yelling at the top of my lungs or crying hysterically, I dug my fingernails into the palm of my hands for about 20 minutes. Yes, it hurt, but the pain was distracting me from my anger. I know this sounds insane, but that is how angry I was. Yesterday, my hands still hurt and had bruises from where I dug my nails into my palms.

I know that everyone handles their anger and negative emotions differently and there are healthy ways, and unhealthy ways of doing so. The only good thing is that I was not destructive towards anything that could break easily and cost money to fix, I only decided to harm my poor hands when I was extremely upset. I know and have seen when some people get upset, they will break things because they hit an object with massive force, which has never made sense to me. I am still very upset about my truck not working because now I have no way to get anywhere that I may need to go. I think it is more frustrating because working from home and hardly leaving the house, I already feel isolated and like I am on house arrest, so now that my only way to leave the house has been taken away from me, my frustrations have increased.

As you can tell, my week has been mildly stressful because of the vehicle issues. I have never claimed that I handle stress well because I am an intense stress case and worry about everything. I know this is something that I need to work on and improve on drastically, but I have failed so far. Does anyone else worry about things and if so, how do you maintain yourself and try to stay calm?

With today being the midway point to the weekend and we still have a few days to go, I think we could all use a little inspiration. Life is not easy, and we all go through struggles in life, which can make it easier to become anxious. I hope the quote I am sharing with you will provide you with a sense of calm and inspiration to make it through the rest of this week!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found what I have shared inspiring and that it resonates with you. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. I hope you have a great day and the last few days go by quickly so that you can enjoy the upcoming long weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Halfway there…

Happy Wednesday, y’all! Maybe the first part of the week was not easy, but we did survive it and the worst part is over. How has your week been so far? My week has been busy and only mildly stressful, but it is over now. I think considering we did make it through the hardest part of the week, we can make it through the last part of the week with ease. Sometimes the greatest challenges in our life make us see the strength we truly have and it can be an inspiring and encouraging feeling.

Today is our halfway moment before the weekend returns. Something that can create challenges in our week is when we are criticized. It does not have to be another person that criticizes us, sometimes this is something we do to ourselves. I know this to be true because I am hard on myself and tend to be my own worst enemy, which I understand is an awful way to be. This is the reason for the quote I am sharing today because I feel this is an important message to be read. Life is not easy and we have all endured struggles to get to where we are in life now and those struggles gave us courage, endurance, and massive levels of strength!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a good week and you are staying safe. Hopefully, the quote I shared has offered you some inspiration and reminded you how much strength and courage you have within you. 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!

Halfway there!

Let’s not think of today as simply Wednesday, let us think of it as we are halfway to the weekend! I am not sure how, but we managed to survive the first half of the week, which at least for me was not easy because it was crazy busy! All I can say is I hope the last part of the week is a little easier and the pain and stress will ease up at least a little!! Why is it some weeks feel so much longer? I understand it comes with the territory, but it would help if people could be just a little less demanding and a lot more understanding.

During our lives, we are going to experience good times and bad times, but the bad times should never define or destroy who we are. It is so easy to get discouraged when negative things occur in our lives, but why let the negative times win when we have choices we can make? No matter what we go through in life, there is always a way out or a choice to make that may have a positive outcome. I hope the quote I have shared with you will inspire you and help you to understand bad things may happen, but we can decide if we let them destroy us or make us stronger. I am going to always choose the latter because I do not want to allow anything to destroy my life.

It is kind of funny that I have never met any of the people I work with in person, but have been able to get to know so many of them and make friends with them. Many people have said to me that they think it would be challenging working remotely and not meeting people face to face, but I have become used to it and enjoy it. Working with customers in person is complicated, but working with them through email is a lot more challenging because people seem to think it is easier to be rude and disrespectful. I do not understand this and doubt I ever will. I almost doubt some of these customers would behave the same if we were face to face, but I guess they might behave the same. No matter how much people decide to be nasty and rude, I have learned to just shake my head and pour on the kindness and good customer service I always provide!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a good week and never forgetting how amazing you are. I would love to know what you thought about this post and the quote I have shared with you. 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!

Inspirational Wednesday

Happy mid-week. I barely survived the first two days of this week because I had another one of my awful MS migraines. I ended up leaving work two hours early on Monday and called out yesterday. I do not like calling out of work, especially since I work from home, but there was no way I would have been able to handle looking at a computer screen all day. I was miserable all day and was only able to sit on the couch with my cats and watch repeats of Law & Order Special Victims Unit, which is one of my favorite shows and have seen every episode at least three times, so it did not matter if I fell asleep and missed anything.

Considering I do experience migraines so often, I wish my doctor could find something that eliminated them. Unfortunately, there has been no such luck yet. The only thing I found the helps a little is a mixture of Advil, Excedrin, and Sudafed, but I cannot take two of the three more than once a day because of the caffeine they contain. I do know that staying hydrated is important, which is why I drink water all day and rarely drink soda, but never drink any soda with caffeine.

Now that we are at the halfway point in our week and have two more days until we reach the weekend again, I think we could all benefit from some inspiration. Anytime I start to get down and discouraged because of what I am going through in life, I always remember something a wise old man told me years ago, “Now matter how bad things may seem in life, remember that someone else is going through something much worse.” That was what my late grandfather told me when I found out I had Multiple Sclerosis and I thought my life was over.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have had a better week than I have so far. Even though the beginning of my week was terrible because of the evil migraine, I am hoping the rest of the week will be much better! I know I have mentioned this before, but I think one of the things I hate most about living with Multiple Sclerosis is the migraines. I look forward to reading your comments and hope the quote I shared helps you through the rest of this week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

We are halfway through the week and much closer to the weekend than we were yesterday. Sometimes this helps me get through when the week feels like it is never going to end. Yesterday did go by fast because I was really busy dealing with demanding people that thought what they wanted was a difference between life and death when logically it was far from that. I try to help give everyone what they want, but it is not always possible.

At the halfway point in this week, I feel we could all benefit from some inspiration. Life is too short to live with mass levels of stress and feeling helpless. One thing we all need to hold onto is hope because no matter how difficult things may seem, there is always room for hope. I do understand all too well how much of a struggle life can be and we all have to endure different challenges, but if we lose hope, there is nothing left to hold onto.

One thing that I think is important in life is to always try to understand others and be kind to everyone. Of course, it is not easy to be nice and understanding of everyone because some have extremely unique personalities. Even those most challenging and frustrating people deserve compassion because it might help them to realize their behaviors are not the best way to be. I had an uncomfortable conversation with someone earlier this week. This person is not bad , but tends to put me in an awkward position that I have to remind him is unacceptable. Unfortunately, he is elderly and does not understand his actions are not appropriate.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and the quote resonates with you. We have almost made it through this week and I am sure y’all are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. Of course, I do not have any plans, which is the kind of weekend that I prefer. 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!

~Inspirational Wednesday~

Most of us had Monday off from work, which made Tuesday feel like Monday on steroids! I do hope y’all enjoyed the long weekend and yesterday was not too crazy busy! For some reason, for me at least the short weeks always feel much longer. Yesterday was a crazy busy day at work, which I do like because it makes the day go by faster. Something good that happened yesterday for me was, that I received my 5th shout-out for doing a great job at work. I am sure we can all admit this, but praise does not happen often because people complain more than appreciate.

I think during the week we need to stay inspired. If we could learn to be inspired by our life and those around us, we could spread this to others to make the world a better place. I found the quote I am sharing with y’all amazing and inspirational because life does seem like a river. A river continues to flow and it never goes in reverse. Forgetting the past is important and focusing more on the future is crucial. We must learn from the past, but never stay stagnant in the past so we can move forward to a future filled with many opportunities. There is a lady I work with that has an amazing outlook on life and she always tries to spread this to all of us, which I appreciate.

During the week we must stay focused on our goals. We are the only ones that can achieve what we aspire to do, no one can do it for us. Do you think about your goals at the beginning of the week and plan things out or do you just fly by the seat of your pants? I always have a plan for things and a backup plan, but then also a backup plan for my backup plan. Things can always go wrong, so I think it is better to stay prepared!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found the quote meaningful. I hope your week is going well and you are staying stress-free. 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!
