Let It Go Friday

Finally, happy Friday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to a lovely, and safe weekend! Do you have any plans for the weekend? I think it is safe to say that y’all already know that I do not have any real plans for the weekend, but I like it that way. I mean the workweek is SO long and there is always something that has to be done, so the weekend should not have anything that must be done or at least that is how I view things. My husband is off this weekend, so there is a small chance there is something we are going to do, but definitely NOT definite!

Considering the workweeks are SO long, there is always a chance something negative occurred that created some unpleasant emotions. With the weekend already being VERY short, there is NO need to allow those emotions to carry over into our weekend and it is best to just let go of them! Today is the perfect day during the week to let go of things that troubled us, caused us stress, and things we do not have to power to change the outcome! Doing this will allow our weekend to be much more carefree and enjoyable! It is finally time to say see ya later to this week and onto happier times with hopes next week will be better than this week was, not that this week was awful, but there is always room for improvement!

Whatever you have planned for this weekend, please stay as safe as possible. COVID and the awful heat where I live, I need to be careful. I have noticed the heat makes me feel terrible and extremely dizzy. I never thought I would say this, but I cannot wait for summer to end and cooler months to begin, which where I am will not be until November at the earliest. I know one of the most important things when dealing with the heat is to stay hydrated, which I do!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the quote I shared helps you let go of unpleasant emotions and you are able to enjoy your weekend! I cannot make any promises, but I am going to try doing at least one post this weekend and hope it will be interesting to you. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Let It Go Friday

It is finally time to say, happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and I am sure you are just as ready as I am for the weekend! Y’all already know that my week was busy, which I do enjoy because the days go by SO much faster. I am really happy the weekend is about here because I need a break from getting up early. The crazy thing is, even though tomorrow I do not have to wake up at 6:30 AM, my cats do not know the difference between a weekday morning and a weekend morning, and still feel the overwhelming need to make sure I am awake to give them a treat. Do you have any plans for the weekend? Whatever your plans might be, please just do everything you can to stay safe!

Now that we finally made it through the week and will be starting our weekend tomorrow, today is the day to let go of all the stresses, frustrations, and all other negative emotions so we may enjoy the short weekend. I hope the quote I am sharing with you today will fill your minds and hearts with peace, happiness, and positivity! I think it is a short and sweet quote but says so much. I have always thought it takes more energy to be negative than it does to be positive so I do my best to see all situations in an optimistic light. Of course, it is not always easy but I do at least try. I would love to know what you think of this quote and promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I always appreciate your continued support and kindness. I am going to continue to try doing my normal posts and even one or two extras with information that I think is useful. I hope you have a great and safe weekend. I know I say this in almost every post, but the Delta variant is serious and dangerous and we need to continue to follow the experts advice. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

FINALLY, HAPPY FRIDAY Y’ALL

How has your week been? My week has felt all over the place from work changes and craziness to going back to the dentist. My appointment with the dentist yesterday was just cleaning, x-rays, and coming up with a treatment plan for all the issues with my teeth. With the combination of my insane and irrational fear of the dentist and all the medications I have had to be on due to the MS, there is some work to be done. Thankfully, the dentist is a very nice lady and her assistant is also very nice and they took their time going through things with me and explained things as needed.

Honestly, the changes and craziness with work are good. I have always been able to get along with most everyone else, but I am not my team lead’s biggest fan (I am not a fan at all). She is one person that I will try to avoid as much as I can because she is very unpleasant and creates a little too much frustration making me feel like I do not know what I am doing. Obviously, if I have a question about something, it is because I have not seen the issue before, not because I am not good at my job.

The large one is Willow and the little one is Luna
Our 11 year old boy, Sundance

Very soon, I am going to be taking our two new kittens to the vet. All three of our cats have adjusted very well to one another and there has never been any fighting. I will say that our boy cat is about 11 years old and the most passive, good-natured, and loving little boy ever. The only issue with his passive nature is, the two girls will walk all over him and he lets them. I give the three of them their special Fancy Feast treats twice a day and if he walks away from the treat, one of the girls will start on his treat (mostly the little girl). The smaller of the two girls is absolutely fearless and very feisty, but the poor girl has breath that will clear a room out, which is why I want to take her to the doctor. The larger one of our girl kittens is about 11 months old and the smaller girl is about 7 months old, but the way they play with each other is hilarious! Poor boy cat runs away from both of them and he is not a small cat.

Now that we have finally made it through this week and the weekend will be here shortly, I think today is the perfect day to let go of any negative feeling the week brought on. The weekends are so short and we should be able to enjoy them the best we possibly can! Do you have any plans for the weekend? I know you will not be surprised, but I do not have any plans besides ordering groceries, cleaning house, hopefully writing some, and making progress with the book I started. I did want to share a quote with y’all that I hope will help you let go of any negative and unpleasant feelings to help you enjoy your weekend a little easier.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed this post and I am looking forward to reading your comments, which I promise to respond to as quickly as I can. I hope whatever y’all have planned for the weekend, you will continue to stay as safe as you can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Congratulations! It Is Finally Friday~

Happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I hope you had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend! I am so happy the weekend is finally here and I have two days of not waking up early and then staring at a computer screen for eight LONG hours! I sometimes think that the computer ends up causing some nasty headaches or maybe it is “some” of the people I have to deal with. You will not be surprised that I do not have any plans for the weekend. I even already did my grocery store delivery, so I do not have to do that. I know I told you the other day that there were a few more posts I wanted to do about Multiple Sclerosis, which I hope to complete this weekend!

Now that the weekend is almost here and the weekend is upon us, it is time to let go of any negative feelings the week may have caused. Our weekends are so short and the work-week is so long, we need to be able to enjoy our weekends to the fullest, but please do so safely. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with the means to let go of the negative and embrace the positives in life! For all the things we may regret we did during our life, we should use them as learning experiences, not do them again, and let them go. It is important to live, learn, grow, and move on!

I hope your weekend is full of nothing but happiness and enjoyment. Y’all already know that we are not completely out of the water yet with the fears of COVID, so please be sure to stay safe. I would love to know how your week went and any plans you have for the weekend. Unfortunately, I still believe the United States is still going through many difficult and tragic times, but during times like these, we need to do our best to be understanding, compassionate, empathetic, and kind to others. The truth is, we never know what someone else is going throughand their troubled times may alter their personality. I do believe in that old saying “Kill them with kindness”.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared with y’all and do look forward to reading what you thought. I do promise to try responding to all comments as quickly as I possibly can. Also, please know that I will be working on the posts to share a little more information about Multiple Sclerosis. I know March is over and it was Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, but just because the month is over does not mean those living with MS are free of it! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Finally, Happy Friday!

I have some really wonderful and amazing news for y’all! Of course, this week has not been a great one because I went through another loss, my Grandmother passed away last Sunday, but the good news is this week is finally over! It does feel like the weeks are getting longer, but I guess it could be worse. The other issue with this week was, I had an awful headache that started on Tuesday evening and it did not ease up much. I am used to headaches, but they are no fun at all How was your week? I hope you had a good week and you are continuing to stay safe!

Now that the weekend is finally here, do you have any plans? This will not be a surprise to any of you, but I pretty much have nothing planned. The only thing I would like to do over the weekend is finally finishing two posts I started but was not able to complete because of the nasty headache, but I do not want to make any promises. Whatever plans you have for the weekend, please just stay safe. Not only is COVID not under control, but three new variants are evading the United States and many other countries as well.

Now that this week is just about over, we need to take this time to let go of anything negative that occurred during the week, so we can enjoy the short weekend! I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will offer you some comfort and help to let go of negative emotions. I am looking forward to reading your comments on the quote I am sharing and promise to respond as quickly as I can! I just want to quickly tell y’all why I love this quote as much as I do. Our life is so short and we do not know what it has in store for us. It is crucial to understand that tomorrow is not a promise and we need to enjoy the life we were given!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you had a great week and you have a nice, and safe weekend! I am going to try to finish the few posts I started last week, and stick to my typical blogging schedule next week. Between the nasty headache I had and the loss of my Grandmother, I did not have enough energy to do my normal post, but I am going to get back on schedule. 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, Happy Friday ~

I am so glad that we finally made it through this week! I do not know about you, but I think this has been a painfully LONG week! Of course, work has been busy, which I like, but I can use a break from the insanity! I am not sure if it is stress-related or the colder weather, but my pain levels have increased drastically. Yes, I am going to be getting the first COVID vaccine tomorrow morning and if I am being completely honest, I am nervous about it. I am not nervous about getting a shot, however, I am nervous if this vaccine will have a negative interaction with the medication I take for the MS. At least I do not work the weekend and my husband will be sure nothing bad happens to me, and if all else fails the hospital is close to where I am going for the vaccine.

Our work week tends to be stressful and even cause some negative emotions to bubble up. Now that the weekend is so close, it is time to let go of all bad energy and feelings and just enjoy the short weekend. As I get older, I am understanding more and more, we have to do what brings us joy and care much less about what others think of us. As long as we are continuing to be kind, caring, understanding, and fair to others we are doing everything right. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all will help remind you to live your life doing what you love and not trying to impress anyone else!

What do y’all have planned for your weekend? Y’all know I never do anything over the weekend, but you also know I am leaving the house tomorrow! Is it crazy that I am excited to leave the house but nervous about why I am leaving the house? Does anyone reading this post have Multiple Sclerosis, take Gilenya, and have received the COVID vaccine? I know that everyone experiences medication and side effects differently, but it might help relieve my anxiety to hear from someone that can give me a little information about the vaccine.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I really appreciate you continuing to visit and love reading your comments. It might sound silly to some, but I consider all my fellow bloggers friends. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

~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!

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!

Always, Alyssa
