Let It Go Friday

~We Made It Through The First Week of 2021~

Happy Friday y’all! I hope y’all had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend ahead of us! My week has not been awful, but I am looking forward to a quiet and relaxing weekend. This getting up early thing and working at least 9 hours each has been exhausting. It is not any different from normal, but I feeling overly tired this week, and maybe a little stressed. It is possible it has something to do with the weather being so chilly and there still being an obnoxious amount of political drama still. Who would have thought this many weeks after the election there would still be so much non-sense? I almost think it is a little sad that there are this many adult men acting like toddlers.

Life in general can stressful, but work can add more stress. I think there is already enough for us to tolerate and get through, but with COVID still spreading like wildfire and political craziness, we all need a break. Do you ever have days you just want to hide under the covers or bury you head in the sand? I have definitely felt like this lately. I think over this weekend, I am going to try to stay hidden under the covers and just relax quietly by myself!

Now that we made it through this week, it is time to try letting go of any negative emotions the week may have caused. The weekends are so short and it is best to enjoy it the best we can without having it hindered by unsettling feelings. The reason why I chose this quote for today is because we are always going to face the storms of life and all we can do is keep ourselves calm. I hope this quote will offer you some help to let go of things that are weighing on you, but I do look forward to reading your thoughts. I promise to respond as quickly as I can, even if it is over the weekend!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! Whatever your plans are for the weekend, please just remember to stay safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

We Finally Made It Through The Week!

Happy Friday y’all! How was your week? All I can say is, thank goodness the week is finally over! It was not an awful week, but it did feel pretty darn long. Honestly, I would much rather my workday be busy because it makes the day go by faster. Out of all the days, I must say that Wednesday was probably the worst. My Wednesday seriously felt like a bad Monday on steroids! I do not think I would wish the way Wednesday was for me on my worst enemy!

Now that the week is over and the weekend is here, do y’all have any plans? As I am writing this, I do not really have many plans. I will probably go out for a short visit to a store for some Christmas cards, but it will be a short visit to a store because it seems like the people where I live think COVID is a joke and not that serious. Not only do people refuse to wear a mask, but they will NOT social distance. I would hate to go to a store for cards and end up in jail because people get too close and NEVER social distance! I will of course, be as safe as I can during my very short outing!

As our week comes to an end, it is time to let go of anything and everything negative that happened during the week, so we can enjoy the short weekend! Yes, I am working on letting go of my frustrations that Wednesday caused because, at the end of the day or week, it isn’t that important! I am hoping you will find the quote I am sharing with you and it will offer you a way to let go of the negative and enjoy the positive life has to offer! Please whatever you end up doing this weekend, do what you can to stay safe!!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you had a great week and your day goes well, and your weekend is full of nothing but joy! I would love to know what you think and promise to respond to 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!

Always, Alyssa

A Little Off-Script

I might be a few days late for my normal “Let It Go” Friday quote, but I think I am going to go a little off-script today. There are things we can and should let go of, especially when it is from the craziness of the week, but there are also somethings that are not that easy to just simply “let go” of. The few issues I have tried, but failed to find a way to let go of are the hundreds and thousands of death from COVID-19, discrimination, violence, and hatred, the lies heard from those we “should” be able to trust, and the healthcare or lack thereof in the United States.

I am having a hard time not letting ALL the deaths due to COVID-19 bother me. I guess I can’t understand why we are all still in the same or even the worst situation since we were at the beginning of the year. This isn’t a political thing, this is a life and death situation and having the good common sense to do what is necessary. Wearing a mask isn’t fun and even feels a little suffocating, but it can be life-saving. Or even just social distancing should not be that difficult, but some seem to think it is. It is way past time to follow the advice from the experts. So, please when you leave the safety of your house, wear a mask and social distance!

I will also never understand why there is SO much hatred in this world which is spreading faster than a wildfire. Discrimination is nothing new, as it has been going on for decades now. The color of another person’s skin, who they love, where they are from or anything else should not matter! Forgive me for saying this, but I do think the amount of hatred escalated much more over the past four years. I mean, we have heard the president of the United States call COVID-19 the Chinese virus. We have also heard this same person talk negatively about people from other countries and of other nationalities, which is very wrong, but that is only my opinion.

There has been a widespread amount of violence over the past few years as well and honestly, it goes back even further than this. Again, this only my opinion and it is okay if you disagree with me, but violence does not do anything productive and only creates more problems. I wish that there would come a day where we can all get along and join together for the good of humanity. I guess maybe I am just naïve, but there is no reason why everyone can’t unite and help one another during troubling times.

The United States is one of the richest countries in the world, but yet the healthcare is a complete disgrace. The United States is the only developed country that does not offer the citizens free healthcare and instead allows the insurance companies to charge an insane amount of money, and that money still does not cover the policy holder’s entire amount. For those of us that have several medications we need to take daily, the pharmaceutical companies charge a ridiculous amount for each prescription. If it was not for the Gilenya Go Program, my medication for one month would cost more than my car and I don’t mean just one car payment, I mean the full amount of the car, which I would never be able to afford it. The Gilenya for only one month costs over $8,000, which is ridiculous! Unfortunately, without the Gilenya, I am afraid my condition would deteriorate rapidly.

After reading all of this, can any of you suggest a way to let go of these things?  I have tried, but I am not able to. I am also one of those people, as y’all probably already know, who wears my heart on my sleeve. My heart breaks for what so many people have gone through and I wish there was something I could do to help, but I am only one person.

Thank you for reading this post, which is a little more of a rant of my feelings and nowhere near the positive way I am normally. Change is something that is necessary and I have no idea how to implement the changes that are required.I do hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend! I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as I can. Thankfully, my husband and I do not have two- legged children that we have to worry about going to school; our four- legged children never leave the house and are always safe! I am a chronic worrier and I do not think I could handle having any more people to worry about. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~The Week Is Finally Over & We Can Enjoy The Weekend!~

Happy Friday and all I can say is I am SO glad the week is over and the weekend is finally here! For some reason this week has been excruciatingly long and painful. I do like when my days are busy at work, but working almost 40 hours in 4 days is insane! I don’t know about y’all, but I am looking forward to the weekend with hopefully NO more political chaos and lunatic behaviors.

Now that we have almost made it to the weekend, we must learn how to let go of the craziness the week brought us. There is absolutely no need to ruin the short weekend with our work-week business! These next two short days must be spent doing what brings us the most happiness and peace because they do fly by so fast. This means we do not need to make plans or set any kind of schedule because that is what the work-week is all about. I am pretty sure I told y’all yesterday that my weekend would be spent cleaning, organizing, reading (hopefully), and maybe get some writing into the mix. With that said, what are you looking forward to most this weekend? I do hope the quote I am sharing will help you let go of anything and everything that isn’t necessary!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great day ! Of course, I want y’all to have a lovely and relaxing weekend, but I do urge you to stay safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

The Week Is Over, Let’s Enjoy The Weekend!

Finally, happy Friday y’all! Are you ready for the weekend to finally begin? Do you have any plans for the weekend? As always, I hope whatever your plans are you will stay very safe! I am sure you can already guess, the only plans I have for the weekend is quiet and peaceful time! This past week was not awful, it just felt rather long. I think a weekend of not leaving house, not working, and not having any real plans sound absolutely amazing!

Now that we have come to the end of the week, was there anything you experienced that caused you any unpleasant emotions? There is so much going on around the world, it can get difficult to not get pulled into the negativity, but we have to try. Now that we have the short weekend to look forward to, there is no room for any negativity. Today is the perfect day to let go and just enjoy ourselves! I hope the quote that I am sharing will help you let go of anything that happened during the week, you may have wished didn’t happen.

I know it seems like we are all extremely isolated because of COVID, but it will hopefully end someday sooner than later. In the past our weekends were spent very differently than they are now, but at least we have many happy memories from the past and will hopefully make news ones in the future. It isn’t easy to stay inside our homes every single day and working from home adds to the isolation. It is so crazy to say, but work used to be from home and now it is just one in the same! Sometimes safety is more important than having fun!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your Friday is beautiful and your weekend will be full of happiness. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

The Art Of Not Letting Things Bother You

Wisdom-Quotes-About-Life-Lessons-1Our lives are full of small problems, huge problems, and everything in between. These problems we face can require a significant amount of resilience to protect our emotional well-being. Allowing someone else the power to dictate our emotions should never be allowed. We must remain in control of our happiness and peace because no one else cares as much as we do.

We are only human and have feelings that should never be ignored or dismissed. It is logical and normal to have negative emotions when we feel we weren’t treated fairly or things didn’t go the way we thought they would.recognize

With all of this being said, there has to be a way to overcome these problems, right? I have discovered a 7-step process to alleviate the negative emotions felt and establish ways to not allow things to cause us distress.

  1. Recognize the circumstances:

An uncomplicated way to resolve a problem is to recall what exactly the problem is. It may help to break the issue problem down into a simple feasible statement, which will allow you to see clearly what you are enduring.

  1. Understand what and why:

We must be able to comprehend what we are feeling to develop the best approach to handling what we are feeling. If we do not understand what we are feeling, we will not be capable of diffusing those emotions. Whatever we are dealing with can cause an intense combination of emotions. There might be times we are sad, angry, frustrated, and disappointed all at the same time. So having a plan to deal with our emotions will be beneficial to secure our mental well-factsbeing.

  1. What are the facts of the situation?

It is very easy for our emotions to blur what is real and true. We might be so angry that we are unable to see our role in the situation or be able to scrutinize the circumstances. Focusing solely on the facts of any situation does not require any of our emotions because facts are or are not. The facts can keep us balance as we cope with the issues.

  1. Ask yourself, “What am I culpable for in this situation?”responsible

We have already determined the facts regarding the situation we are dealing with. Now we need to acknowledge any part of the situation we might be at fault for. This step is important for diffusing conflicts because many actions of others are directed by what is going through their minds. Periodically things are going to happen and we have no control over them.

  1. Feel the way we do and then let it go:

Sometimes we will not be able to avoid the issues that trouble us. It is normal and feel what you needhealthy to have negative emotions when unforeseen and or unpleasant things occur in our life. The negative emotions we experience force us to take action to ameliorate our situation. When we are unhappy with something in our life, our brain persuades us to do something to alter our situation.

We can only allow ourselves so much time to think about the negative situation before it causes us to become cynical. Continuing to dwell on the negative situation will not change anything. We need to stay active drawing our attention to something besides the negative event that took place. It is possible we need to process how we are feeling several times before we manage to find tranquility in the situation.

  1. It is time to take action:take action

Our negative feelings can have an invaluable purpose in advising us to do something about the circumstances put on us. We are not able to control what we are faced with in life, but we can control the way we react to situations. It may help if we try having a civil conversation with the other person involved. If you feel that isn’t an option you could ask someone trusted and neutral to mediate the conversation.

  1. Do not be hard on yourself:

Unfortunately, plans do not always work out the way we hoped they would. There might directionbe times we need to accept what has occurred just to save our peace and happiness in life.

Life can get so complicated and it is easy to become frustrated. The frustrations we feel may cause us to lash out towards the person we are upset with.

Let it go Friday!

242860-Good-Morning-Happy-Friday-Flowers-And-ButterfliesGood morning y’all! I hope your week has treated you well and you are looking forward to the weekend! My week has been a little busy with car shopping. Car shopping has been nothing short of a nightmare and the for some reason it shocks me how many people just LIE. One day my husband and I drove 6 hours round trip to look at a car because the seller “said” it had sharp paint and no rust. Not only was the paint NOT sharp, but it was rusted all to hell! I have decided to not allow these negative experiences get me down and just keep looking around!

With how busy things have been, I did miss my normal Pick-Me-Up Thursday post and I am sorry about that. I might try starting a Friday post to add some additional positivity, so please let me know what you think of this! let go7

The reason I have thought about an additional day for positive quotes is because with how negative the world can become, we could all use just a little extra positivity. I also feel with all my heart, soul and mind that letting go of anything that happened negativespread the positive during the week is very important for our own peace! I am interested to know what you think about this though!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and you are able to enjoy it to the fullest! After so many setbacks, I am finally starting my new job on Monday. I do think it will be a great fit for my personality. I had done this type of work for many years before, but it has been a while. I have always excelled working with people because for the most part enjoy it. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤
