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!

Always, Alyssa

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!

Inspirational Wednesday

How do you stay inspired? Is there anyone in your life that inspires you to be better? I think it can be hard to be inspired by the world we are living in because it seems many bad things are happening daily. So many are quick to judge others and treat people unkind. The way the people in Ukraine are handling their struggles right now is inspiring because I cannot imagine living in fear. They appear to be joining together and helping one another through the tragedies they are experiencing, which in my eyes the way a country and people should behave.

The qualities that I admire and inspire me are honesty, loyalty, faithfulness, kindness, compassion, equality, and showing love for others. These qualities seem easy to me, but unfortunately, they are not for many. The qualities that I admire and am inspired by are the qualities my late grandfather had. It should be as easy as breathing because it is doing what is right. I have always viewed other human beings as equals and nothing but the way they treat others matters.

I have felt exhausted by the way life has been recent. It does not matter how hard I try and how much I am willing to give the treatment is not reciprocated. I think we have all heard people say that those that are the only child are normally selfish, but I am an only child and to my knowledge am very unselfish. I would give my last dollar to someone who is homeless and hungry because I feel I am lucky in my life. I try to understand what others are going through and ignore what I am dealing with. I am not saying this to feel sorry for myself because although things have not been easy, I am able to manage.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am very interested to know what keeps you inspired because I find these things interesting. Even if we are living in different countries, we are all living in the same world. There are times no matter where we live, we need to help each other deal with the hard times we all face. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Mid Week Inspiration

Thankfully, we are halfway through the week, which means we are that much closer to the weekend! I hope you are having a great and safe week. The first couple of days of this week were not too bad. To be honest with y’all experiences during the past few days reminded me to never second guess myself, especially when it comes to human beings. I keep trying to convince myself that the good people in this world outweigh the bad, but seeing the news makes me wonder. I am considering making a 1/4 of the way through the year resolution. Yes, I think I just made that up. Anyway, my 1/4 resolution is to remove negativity from my life, which includes people that do not bring joy to my life and only bring stress.

It is great we are halfway through the week! We do have two more to go before the weekend returns, so we all need a way to be inspired and optimistic. I hope the quote I am sharing offers you a little inspiration or at least brings a smile to your face! We are faced with difficulties every day and handle them the best way we can. I have always wondered why some people view challenges as negative because these challenges can be seen as amazing opportunities and change our life for the better.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote and it brought some joy to your day. 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!

Midweek rain & pain

Happy Wednesday y’all! We have made it through the first half of this week, so we are at the halfway point. How has your week been? I hope you are having a great and safe week. The past few days where I live have had on and off rain, which always makes me feel worse than normal. Of course, when I look at the weather there is rain for many more days this week. The only thing rain does is make my legs and feet, back, and head have more intense pain as if I need any additional pain!

I was planning to do another post about March being Multiple Sclerosis Awareness month, but with my pain being awful I have not been able to yet. Even though I see a lot of rain for this week, I am hoping to be able to do at least one post to explain a little about what Multiple Sclerosis is. Without going into too much detail because my pain is that miserable, I will say one thing about MS, it is the most unpredictable, frustrating, and painful thing I have dealt with in life. Most days I do not get too upset about it, but on the bad days, it feels like a punishment for something I am unaware of.

Recently, I read something about Multiple Sclerosis being more about environmental factors and nothing about our genes. Considering there is not anyone in my family that lives with this disease, I am starting to believe that to be true. I do know already that certain foods increase inflammation and with that being a huge issue with MS, I try avoiding these foods. *I will be explaining this further in another post soon*. I also know for a fact that stress makes issues with MS a lot more intense because it has caused me numerous issues. Weather is another challenge with this mean disease. With all seasons and temperatures changing, my body feels it and does not adapt quickly. Even though I enjoy the sound of rain when I sleep, rain has become one of my enemies!!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am sorry I was not able to do a more thorough post regarding Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, but I do promise I will do one before the end of this week. I hope you are doing well and having a lovely week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

Congratulations y’all, we survived the first two days of the week and have only a few more before we return to the weekend. This is our halfway point and that feels like something that should be celebrated! The first two days of this week went fine and there are no complaints. My doctor’s appointment on Monday went the same way it always does, nothing new and nothing changes. I like the Nurse Practitioner and think she is an intelligent and kind person! The interview went well and I did start a part-time job yesterday. Honestly, this is a temporary job for me until I get something full-time. Also, the appeal hearing with unemployment went well and the person was very understanding.

Even though we made it through two days, we do still have two more to go and I think we could all benefit from a little inspiration. I hope you find inspiration and optimism in the quote I am sharing with you today. Life is difficult and full of decisions, but feeling guilty about those decisions will never solve anything and will only create unnecessary stress for you in the long run. Just live your life in the best way you can and be as happy as you can!

How is your week going so far? I hope everything is going the best it can for you and you are staying happy, and positive. I have been trying to stay focused and on top of things by doing posts at least daily which I have been successful with. Writing brings me joy during the darkest times of life and with the stresses of life. I think everyone needs something that helps to eliminate stress because it is not a lie, stress is a silent killer. So many people in this world go through battles and some are more heartbreaking than others. I found out yesterday someone I know is battling pancreatic cancer and there is nothing I can do for her, but hope for the best.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and what I have written. I am looking forward to reading your comments, and I will respond to all of them as quickly as I can. It does not matter what the day is, remember to tell those you care about what they mean to you. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

Today is not just simply Wednesday, it means we are halfway to the weekend! I hope your week has been good up until today and the last two days are even better. Do you have any plans for the weekend? I honestly do not have anything too exciting planned for the weekend, but Friday is a rather big day. Well, I say big but it is because I have another interview and a meeting with the evil people for unemployment. The unemployment thing has been VERY frustrating and EXTREMELY unfair. No matter how frustrating and unfair things have been with unemployment, I am not giving in to their shenanigans because I have been doing everything I can to find a job. I guess they just do not understand why the job I get has to be remote, but after Friday they will understand!

I know I have not been doing my “normal” posts, but I am trying to get back to normal. I have always felt that the weeks are long and when we make it to the halfway point, we could all use some inspiration to help get us through the remainder of the week. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with some inspiration and help you to feel happier! Life will always throw so much our way and it can feel overwhelming, which is why I find this quote so inspiring. If we always focus our attention on everything being thrown our way, it will be easy to miss some of the best things life has to offer!

What are some of the things you enjoy most about life, even during the painfully difficult times? I have thought about this a lot over the past month or rather a year. It is a question that can keep us grounded and satisfied with life. I love spending time with my husband and our cats. I think our cats can make everything better because they do not know or understand hate, anger, evilness, or anything else negative. I mean the day I was laid off, one of our cats would not leave my side and she is one with the most unique personality. Other times when I am not feeling well or in a lot of pain, all three of them are there to help.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to reading your comments. I promise I will respond to all of your comments as quickly as I can and I want you to know how much I appreciate you and your comments. I hope you have a great day and PLEASE continue to stay safe. COVID is still VERY real and continues to take the lives of so many innocent. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

It is no fun to only view today as Wednesday! It is better to view today as making it to the halfway part of the week, which means we are much closer to the weekend we all look forward to! How has your week been so far? I think y’all know that my week did not start all that great, but I also think dwelling on the negative does not help anyone. Everything unpleasant on Monday and Tuesday cannot define how my week will stay.

I have decided to let go of most of the issues I was upset about early in the week. However, I am still terribly upset and frustrated about how awful the country I was born and raised in has allowed a deadly virus to continue to remain. The vaccine and masks are helping to end the spread and in turn not enable new variants. The question I would love to ask those saying mask and vaccine mandates are threatening their freedom is, why are there speed limits and seatbelt requirements? Are the speed limits and law of seatbelts not threatening their freedom as well? My guess is their answer would be that seatbelts and speed limits save lives, well so does the vaccine and masks!

Considering we have made it to the halfway point of this week and we only have a couple of days left until the weekend returns, we could all use a little inspiration to help us! Within each of us lies talents that do amazing things for others. Our determination and attitudes towards life can determine how far we are willing to go to accomplish things that are important to us. No two people share the same talents, which is why our differences should be celebrated and cherished! I hope the quote I have shared has provided you with the inspiration it was intended for. I do look forward to reading your thoughts on this and will respond to all comments as quickly as I can!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week is going great and you are staying safe! I know sometimes my responses to your fantastic comments take me a little while, but it is only because after a full day of work I am rather tired and want to be sure I respond in the best way possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

Happy Wednesday y’all! I hope you are having a good week, but if things are not going the way you want them to do not give up because tomorrow is another day. Things could always be worse, it could only be Monday! However, we can also look on the bright side because we are halfway through the week and much closer to the weekend! It is often necessary to find ways to look at the week optimistically to help push us through. I think we can all agree that the workweeks last so long and the weekends fly by, but we all have the choice to keep trying by changing the way our mind views things.

As we enter into Wednesday and have made it through half of the week, I am sure we can all agree a little inspiration could be beneficial to help us through the rest of the week. I hope you will find the quote I am sharing with y’all today inspiring and it helps you through the remainder of the week. The temperatures are finally not as hot as they have been, but it also has been raining a lot. Unfortunately, rain tends to cause me to feel a lot of extra pain. Even on the worst parts of the day, when my pain escalates, I know stopping will not make the pain decrease and only cause me to get less accomplished. I believe strongly in this quote because the pain I deal with daily has made me a stronger and more determined person.

No matter what issues or challenges have invaded your life, it is crucial to not let these situations overcome your goals and passions. There are times that will require a little extra effort and determination, but we all need to remember how incredibly powerful we are. There is no mountain you cannot climb and no bridge you cannot cross. I know how easy it is to get discouraged when the difficulties stack up against us, but it is during these times we need to break down that barrier trying to hold us back.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared and it provided you with a little inspiration. I am looking forward to reading your fabulous comments and promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can. Never forget how strong you are and you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday

Today comes with the good news that we are halfway to the weekend. We are so close to the weekend that you can almost see it! I cannot speak for anyone else, but I am beyond ready for this week to be over because it has been a challenging, and frustrating week. Even with that said, I am thankful to be alive and have the opportunities that I do have. I am very thankful for my loving family and our adorable three cats because they bring me so much joy. Y’all already know that I love animals more than humans, but every time humans upset me and cause stress, our three cats make it better with their love and silly behaviors!

I think we can all agree that the weeks are getting longer and can be challenging to get through, which is why I think when we are halfway through the week, we all could use a little inspiration. I feel the quote I am sharing holds inspiration, motivation, and encouragement, but I hope it will resonate with you as well. It is kind of like the tortoise and the hare, if we always take HUGE steps we will run out of energy and stop moving, while if we are moving slow and steady we can accomplish much more! If we are constantly rushing through life, we might miss out on some of the most amazing things life offers us and this would be a disservice to us in the long run!

Everything that is going on in the world today breaks my heart. The pandemic has been terrifying and defeating, the hate spreading worst than wildfire, many lies being spewed daily, and so much more that it is hard to stay afloat. During devastating times, it is crucial that we try a little harder to be understanding of others and be empathic when we do not know firsthand what it is like to walk in another person’s shoes. We should not judge others in how they decide to live their life because it is how they want to live and they are entitled to do so. We do not have to agree with how another person is living and only need to be concerned with how we are living!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and read what I have shared. You will never know how much I appreciate you and your views because you are important! I hope your week is going well and you are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
