Tranquil Tuesday

~Find Peace Within Each Day~

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope 2021 is starting off well for you and you are enjoying the year so far! In previous years, my first day back to work after the new year I always had a hard time remembering the year change, but am finding it very easy to remember now. I guess it is because I was very ready to end 2020! I will admit to y’all, my first day back to work after the long weekend was not all that great, but I am not going to allow that to get me down and will keep pushing forward! It can be easy to let a bad day get you down in the dumps, but that does not solve anything!

We have just made it through one day of the first workweek in 2021! Even though this does leave us four days to go, we are also one day closer to the weekend! I think it is important to always find the positive in all and any situation! For us to have tranquility in our lives, we must stay connected with our inner peace. I hope the quote I have shared will offer you a little extra peace and happiness. Everyone in this world has unique personality traits and some will be challenging to deal with, but we should not let anyone’s negative traits harm our peacefulness in life! Do you find it to be a struggle to ignore those that seem miserable with life and only want to bring others down? I do find this challenging, but I will continue trying to kill these people with kindness because I do not know what is going on in their life!

How much have y’all heard about the COVID vaccine where you live? I have a virtual appointment with my neurologist on January 21st, but I messaged her a few questions yesterday, the vaccine being one of the questions. Apparently, there has already been a few of her patients that got the first shot and did well with it. I do not know the age of these people or what medication they take, but I do know they have Multiple Sclerosis. In all honesty, I am terrified of the vaccine, but I am petrified of COVID as well. Do you have any idea when the vaccine is going to be offered to you and how do you feel about the vaccine?

Thank you for visiting my site today! Your continued support and time means the world to me and I always look forward to reading your fabulous comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can. I know it is only the 5th, but I am doing better at keeping up so far and will continue to! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

How do you handle…

A Bad Day When You Work From home

Have you ever had one of those days when you found nearly everything extremely frustrating? How did you handle that intense amount of frustration? Normally, I am good at ignoring small issues that aren’t that important or can be dealt with calmly, but when numerous things occur at the same time, I allow all the little issues to upset me to an unreasonable extent. Sometimes all those small issues join together and feel like an enormous problem. This is the way my day was for the last part of the day yesterday.

So, let me explain a little better. First of all, let me say that I do love my job, but there are a few things that bother me more than they probably should. For starters, when I have a question that only someone in management can address, but I am left hanging for hours. Also, knowing full when this person is answering other questions only adds to my frustration. I mean, seriously, how do you handle things like this?

Second of all, I have always been the type of person that can and does get along with anyone. Even with this said, there is ONLY ONE person I work with that I struggle to tolerate. I know it isn’t just me that feels this way as this ONE person rubs most people the wrong way. Now, how do you endure a person that seems to have a negative attitude or is very unhappy with life? I have tried to kill this person with kindness, but it doesn’t work!

I am thankful to have my work from home job. This offers me a safe way to earn a decent monthly income, but this also means my home often feels like a prison where I never get away from work. I remember how work was before COVID-19. I can recall leaving my house and driving to work in the morning. Then I would work for only eight hours and LEAVE work to drive home! Leaving work for the day would be one of the best parts of my day because I had that distance from work, especially if I had a bad day at work. If you have a bad day at work and you work from home, how do you find that distance so desperately needed? I have tried, but I am clueless on how to do this. Please if you have any ideas, I am willing to try just about anything. Also, adding to the isolation and inability to find a way to escape work, COVID numbers in the state I live in are the highest they have been since the pandemic started so it isn’t like I can go to the mall and walk around.

I have always said that life is too short to not enjoy life to the fullest and not let things affect you negatively. The funny thing is my husband has heard me say this multiple times during our sixteen years together and when he saw how upset I got yesterday; he simply reminded me that I don’t get paid enough to get as upset as I did. I do understand that men and women think very differently, but his thoughts were extremely obvious. I knew he was right, but instead of calming down, it made me even more frustrated and angry. I also tend to cry when I get overly frustrated. It was an hour later I did end up calming down and admitted I need to learn how to let things go and remain calm.

After reading all of this, do y’all have any advice on how I can escape from work? Considering my husband and I both work from home, but at different hours we share a home office in the finished part of our basement. Logically, you would think just going upstairs would be at distance from work, but I still feel trapped at work.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I know I missed my normal Tranquil Tuesday and Inspirational Wednesday posts, but I have worked too many hours and have been exhausted so I wasn’t able to. I am planning to do better next week and work normal hours so I have time for things I enjoy, like writing, crocheting (not that the weather is cold), and reading! I am looking 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!

Always, Alyssa

**Tranquil Tuesday**

~Lets Us Be Calm Always~

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope your week is starting happy and pleasant! The good thing is we have made it through one day and only have a few days left. Well, we have four days left until the weekend technically, but I think we can handle it. Even during these extremely challenging times, we all find a bright light that carries us through. Our strength, courage, and, pure determination is endless, which are all great qualities to have!

As we enter the second day of this week, we all could use some tranquil and calming thoughts! I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will serve a purpose for you and be beneficial as well! Once you read the quote and the rest of this post, I would really love to read your fabulous comments. All of you have such great insight on everything and I truly value your opinions!

I do not know about you, but this year is going by so fast. In a sense, it is great that the year is flying by, but the reason for why the year is going by so fast is pretty sad. Y’all know it is time to change the clocks this weekend, right? Fall back, which if I am not mistaken we actually again an hour sleep! Fall/Autumn is my favorite season because it is not too hot or too cold, the weather is just right!

We have been dealing with this pandemic all year and the end seems so far away. I think it is challenging to keep up a positive out look when so many are losing their lives or someone they love, or becoming very ill, or losing their jobs because of COVID-19. I still feel that if we all can continue following the very brilliant advice from top professionals, like Dr. Fauci, the Centers for Disease Control, and World Health Organization,we may have some hope to see the end of this pandemic and get back to our true normal!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared with y’all, and also hope you are having a great week so far. I promise that I will respond to all your comments as quickly as I can, but it might be after work. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday!

We are halfway there!

Happy Wednesday! How has your week been so far? I hope you are having a great week and you are staying safe! For those of you that read my post from yesterday, you already know my week has been long and frustrating. I am making some changes though so that the same old things will not bother me anywhere near as much as I have let them previously. It is important to realize what is important in our lives and what isn’t, but also what we can change and what will never be different.

I have been thinking that I want to do more with all the amazing quotes I have found over the years. I already do Motivational Monday, Pick Me Up Thursday, and Let It Go Friday, but I want to do something on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. I have a name for Wednesday “Inspirational Wednesday” but still, need a name for Tuesday, so if you have any ideas I would love to know!

For my first ever “Inspirational Wednesday” post, I hope the fabulous quote I have will offer you some inspiration! There is so much going on around the world right now and it can be pretty scary, so I think if we can have a little more positivity and inspiration throughout the week it might help our week go by a little better. We must all remember how our mental attitude and ways we spend our time can be either beneficial to ourselves and the ones closest to us OR do the direct opposite and it cause more issues.

There have been many horrible things happening in the United States where we can’t seem to go one week without an unnecessary person being killed or critically injured by police. I thought when I was younger that the police were here to protect and serve, not kill unarmed and innocent people. Unfortunately, it seems that times have changed and not for the better. I hope that something will change with this because no one should die at the hand of someone that is “supposed” to protect! No child should ever have to see their father gunned down by police!

I hope you have a wonderful and safe day! We have almost made it through the week and only have a couple of days left until it is the weekend! I know this post had several different parts, but the part about justice is because I am so tired of seeing that another innocent person was shot and killed by a police officer. You would think after the massive riots that occurred, the police would be on their best behavior, and also with COVID-19 still being horrible things would have stopped, but it hasn’t. We need to support the people that can’t stand up for themselves and support them twice as much!

I do love reading your comments so I hope you will leave one for this post and let me know what you think! One thing I will ask y’all again is to please do what you can to stay safe, I do not want any of you to get COVID-19! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Tuesday Requires More Energy

Only Tuesday & It Has Already Been A Painful Week Emotionally!

How is it only Tuesday? It feels like it should at least be Thursday! Many things have occurred already for me that have been both physically and mentally painful. Stress always causes additional pain, but this is ridiculous. Of course, weather can also increase my physical pain and Mother Nature can’t decide if she wants to rain or be sunny, so it has been both within minutes of each other.

I have always been the type of person that thinks of everyone and anyone else long before myself. I will not lie to you and say I am trying to fix that about me because I am not. I am trying to eliminate stress as much as I can, but that is extremely challenging for me. Sometimes it seems like stress comes in several different storms and on many different levels of severity. I am not naive enough to think I can fix other people’s issues, but I cannot help trying to alleviate some of other people’s pain and heartache. Truthfully, it does not work and I know that will never change.

With all that said there is a beautiful quote I thought would be good to share with y’all. This might help y’all if you are having a difficult or frustrating week. Or it might just make you think about someone else that might need a little support and love from someone that cares! Sometimes while it is necessary to spread the love to others, it is also important to show yourself a little love as well! I would love to read your thoughts on this quote, please!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my site today and read what I have wrote. I hope the quote I have shared with y’all will have some meaning to you and prove you with positive feelings. I hope your week is going well so far and truly hope you are continuing to stay safe. I hope you will never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Sunday Revitalization!

*Sunday Prepares Us For The Upcoming Week*

Who would have thought the weekend would fly by as fast as it did? It really seems like it was Friday just a few hours ago, but it all reality it is just about time to begin another new week. I hope your weekend has been full of nothing but happiness and you are staying safe!

As our weekend comes to an end, we need to make sure to end it with a great sense of positivity. In my opinion, if we end the weekend with an optimistic mindset, our week will start with the same level of optimism! I hope you will enjoy a fabulous quote I found that I would love to share with y’all!!

Thank you for stopping by my site today! I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quote I shared and would also love to know how your weekend has been! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please continue to stay safe. I hope y’all never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Let’s Begin This Week With A Positive Outlook!

Happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? I hope it was wonderful and safe! Honestly, I did not do much over the weekend. It was uneventful and relaxing, which is what I really needed. Last week was so long and exhausting, I do hope this week will be better for all of us. Thankfully, I did not have a migraine over the weekend and only hope to make it through this week without another that causes me intense pain. It is not possible for me to look at a computer screen with a migraine.

The start to the week is never easy because we realize the weekend is over. No matter how difficult it is to let go of the weekend and begin another long week, I know we can all handle anything and everything thrown our way. Of course, the weekend flies by and it seems like it was Friday a few minutes ago, but this week could have so many benefits and amazing opportunities to offer us!

I think y’all already know that I think starting the new week off with a motivating quote is necessary. Unfortunately, the entire world is so full of so much hate and negative emotions. None of this has solved any of the world’s problems, so we need to combat this with love, acceptance, and positivity! Maya Angelou is a powerful and very encouraging person. I value her brilliant and amazing quotes, and I hope this quote will serve you with the motivation needed to begin the week with hope, positivity, and encouragement!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a lovely day and you continue doing what is required to stay safe. I would also love to read you thoughts on Maya’s quote. I promise to 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!

Let It Go Friday!

Welcome The Weekend & Let Go Of The Week!

Happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I hope you had a wonderful and safe week! I feel like I owe y’all an apology because I was not able to do my normal Pick Me Up Thursday post yesterday. I was battling with another one of my not so fun migraines. It was hard enough to make it through the end of my work day and there was no way I could look at the computer again. As many of you unfortunately know, migraines are horrible and painful. I truthfully can deal with any other type of pain, but migraines put me in the bed. I do hope you can forgive me because I do love doing my normal posts and hate missing any of them!

As our work week comes to and end, it gives us the weekend to look forward to. Do y’all have any plans? You can probably guess what my plans are, nothing at all but staying in the house where I can be safe from COVID-19. I know I have said this before, but the state I live in believes that COVID-19 is nothing more than a joke. Most people just completely refuse to wear a mask and never practice social distancing!

I do have what I think is a great quote with y’all today. It doesn’t really have anything to do with letting go, like I try to doing.the powerful within is something that I felt deep and I hope you will think so as well!

I found both of the quotes I am sharing powerful and meaningful because there are so many lies told to us everyday from politicians and justice seems to not be taken seriously. I can wish all day long that we will be told the truth regarding COVID-19 and what these politicians actually stand for, but I do not think it will happen. Just because we have accepted what is happening in the world today as our new “normal”, does not mean we can’t still stand up for what we really believe in and fight for a good cause. Sometimes this means we might have to stand alone for something we truly believe in, but that is okay!

Thank you for stopping by my site today. I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quotes I shared and what I have written. I promise to response as quickly as I can to all comments. I hope you have a wonderful and safe Friday and weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Random thoughts Sunday!

As the weekend comes to an end…

Good evening y’all! How was your weekend? I hope you had a great and safe weekend! I will be honest, I did not do much over the weekend. I think y’all already know that I do my best to not leave the house because I am terrified of COVID-19 and unfortunately, the state I live in is not doing the best with new cases and deaths. I don’t even leave the house to go grocery shopping because hardly anyone wears a mask and NO ONE respects social distancing, which I find very irritating because I am HIGH RISK!

Considering I try not leaving the house, I have been ordering my groceries online and having them delivered. Last weekend, I did the same thing I always do with grocery shopping and had an awful experience. I try to never complain because the people doing the shopping for me are really doing me a favor and I would even say keep me safer. However, when I request to be contacted when the store does not have the product on my list in stock and not make substitutions on their own, that is what I expect. This always worked so well each of the four previous times I did the online ordering, but last weekend nothing went the way it was supposed to.

Even though last weekend did not go well, I ordered again online for delivery yesterday. The lady sent me a text when she started the shopping and when the store did not have what I requested and when she was done and on her way to my house. I thanked this lady, Norma many times. I even told her why I wasn’t going to stores. She told me she understood and that her mother has MS. I thanked her several times during the time she was shopping and she actually bought me a small flower arrangement. I was so shocked and wanted to share this with y’all. Norma restored my faith in good people in the south!

Honestly, I have spent several days wanting to write about something and couldn’t get the words out. It was driving me crazy because I had a few days without work and I wanted to be able to do what I enjoy doing, which is writing. I have been struggling with a few topics that have a lot of meaning to me, but that also comes with a terrible amount of anger. I have always been a kind, caring, and happy person and do not like being angry. What has been going on in the country I was born and raised in is terrible and very upsetting. Politics is frustrating and I know we all have our own opinions on it. It doesn’t matter if we are Republican or Democratic, what matters is fairness and treating people equally and with respect.

Something else that has been weighing heavily on my mind is this situation with Jeffrey Epstein (who is deceased) and Ghislaine Maxwell. The connections these awful people had are deep within the rich and powerful people of the world and that includes politicians. The awful things Epstein and Maxwell did to young girls was traumatizing and life-altering to them. NO child should ever see or experience what the young girls that were lured into Epstein’s circle did and anyone and everyone that was involved should pay the consequences to the fullest of the law. This is a very sensitive and difficult subject for me and it had caused me a lot of anger and sadness!

Normally, I hand write all my posts first and then type them. I know how insane that might sound, but it typically works for me. I feel more connected with what I am writing when I do it by hand, but I am doing this post by typing what I am thinking and not over thinking it like I tend to do, so I hope you can feel what I am writing as deeply as I do. I would really love to read your thoughts on this post and I promise to respond as quickly as I can.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and you stayed safe! Have you ever noticed how long the work week can feel and then how short the weekends are? Granted I am enjoying my job and love that I get to work from home, especially considering COVID numbers are on a steady increase daily. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

Let Go Of The Negative Energy!

Happy Friday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to the weekend! I must say my first week with my new job went rather well. I think y’all knew I was a little nervous, but all those nerves were wasted on something that didn’t require any kind of worrying. How was your week? Are you continuing to stay safe from COVID-19? I do hope you are because unfortunately, this virus doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.

Regardless of how any given week goes, we always have those pesky little things that rubbed us the wrong way.

Even though my week went well with the new job, I had a couple issues that bothered me. As we approach the weekend, we should do so with happiness and positivity. There is no need for our upsetting moments to impose on the weekend we all deserve. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will serve you well and help you to let go of anything that troubled you during the week, so you can enjoy your weekend!

I hope you have a great day and please stay safe!! Do you have anything planned for the weekend? My plans are going to be staying home and trying to work on somethings I wanted to write about. It isn’t easy to write in-depth posts I enjoy after getting up early and working 8 hours. I should have plenty of time this weekend because my husband will be working and I will have the weekend to myself!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the quote I shared helps you to let things go and have the relaxing and peaceful time you deserve! I know I say this in every post and sometimes multiple times, but please stay safe with whatever you do this weekend! I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
