Motivational Monday

Welcome back, Monday, I cannot say you were missed! I know most of us never look forward to the workweek starting again, but let’s try to view today as an opportunity for success! It is better to view days we dread in a positive light, instead of a negative one. We know we are never able to avoid Monday or the workweek beginning, so why should we waste time thinking negatively? Believe me, I know the weekend was way too short, but at least we were able to enjoy a few days away from work! I do hope you were able to enjoy the weekend and that you are as ready as you can be for the week to start!

I do believe we should try to begin the week with the best mindset possible! I also think it is important to not just be on Monday, but every day is kind and understanding of others. If we could smile more and frown less, listen more than we ignore, and offer compliments to others, we would be happier and so would others! I do know it can be challenging to listen to others, especially when all they are doing is complaining, but it can make a HUGE difference! Trying to do any or all of these things will not cause any harm, so it should not be too difficult!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you found the quote I shared motivating that it carries you through today, and that your week continues to improve each day. Remember to try not to worry about the things you have no control over and only focus on what you can control. 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! 

Always, Alyssa

Hello again, Monday! It is crazy how quickly the weekends fly by because it feels like it was just Friday not too long ago. I guess this is just something that happens every week, and we should consider ourselves lucky to have another opportunity with a new week. I hope this week holds many wonderful opportunities for all of you and you will not let anyone or anything get in your way of achieving greatness! Even though the weekend did seem short, I hope you were able to enjoy it and do something for yourself. My weekend was relaxing and quiet until Sunday when I woke up with a terrible migraine that would not go away. Unfortunately, this is something I endure too much and it never gets any easier.

As we begin a new week, I feel it is important to try to do so with a motivated and good mindset. If we do not try to start the week in the best frame of mind, we cannot expect the rest of the week to be as great as it should be. Each of us has faced countless battles and various struggles, but we are still here to live another day. Our journeys will always take strength and courage we never knew we had, but one day we will realize how incredibly strong and powerful we are. We can use these qualities to keep up a good fight and this will show others what they are capable of. Each storm we survived during this life, gives us the courage we need to face all the other challenges that life has in store for us!

I know most people are not ready for another Monday, but they never fail to return and it is another chance to do great things. I tried telling my cats this😊, but they did not think it was a good idea for their Mommy to have to be glued to her work laptop and not with them. I guess it is a good thing that they sleep around 20 hours a day and when they are not sleeping, they are enjoying playing with one another. I would give anything to live the life of our cats because they have everything and more they could ever want, plus everything is handed to them and they do not have to work😊! Our cats do not understand how lucky they are because not everyone treats their pets like family!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote provided you the motivation necessary to begin another week. If there is such a thing as being reincarnated, I hope I will be lucky enough to come back as a cat who has a life as mine do! Those precious little fur balls have it made😊, but I still love them more than I could ever explain! 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!

Hello again, Monday! I hope y’all had a nice and relaxing weekend! Ready or not, the new week has started and instead of dreading the day, we must learn to embrace it because it will always come back too quickly! Did you do anything exciting over the weekend or did you just spend it recovering from last week and preparing for this week? I basically did nothing too exciting, but I did sleep on one of the days, which is HUGE for me because it is very rare!

As we begin the new week, we must hope for the best and most amazing opportunities. We need to not just wait for these new opportunities to find us but go after the things we want. It does not matter what others think about what we are doing or how we accomplish what we want in this life, the only person’s opinion that matters is how we view ourselves. We need to be proud of who we are in our lives and others who matter will end up following! Unfortunately, it will never matter how well we do because too many people will be too quick to judge. The best thing we can do is stop living our life to impress others and get their approval and start being proud of who we are!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you found the quote that I shared motivating and it helps start your week with a motivating and positive mindset. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. I hope you have a wonderful day and your week continues to get better until we reach the end of the week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend, and that you are ready for another week to begin. I wanted to do a few posts over this past weekend, but I was, unfortunately, still not feeling well after the tooth extraction trauma and unable to do much of anything. I tried my best to relax and rest, but it did not help much because I still had this nagging nauseous sensation. Not only was I extremely nauseous all weekend, but I also had a sore throat, which I am assuming was due to the tooth infection the first dentist missed. I am just hoping to keep getting better because we are going on a short vacation to celebrate my husband’s birthday and will be snowboarding at the end of this week.

As we begin the second week of 2023, I think we could all use a little motivation to start the week with the best mindset. We all work so hard and often work through personal struggles and challenges. Most of the time, we show our strength behind closed doors or in silence because we do not want any extra attention. We do what we do for ourselves and our family, not to be recognized for doing something spectacular. I am saying this to remind y’all to remember to be proud of yourself for the progress and achievements you have made in life! Life is not easy and we all experience challenges, but it is overcoming those challenges that can make us stand out and display strength and resilience!

How was your weekend? I certainly hope your weekend was better than mine was. Is there anything you are looking forward to or dreading this week? I am only working two days this week because we are leaving on Wednesday on the snowboarding birthday trip. Even though work has not been busy lately, I am looking forward to a few days off and it will be nice to get away. I think it is important to have time away from the same old thing all the time because it can be healthy for mental wellbeing!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote offered you some motivation. It is never easy beginning another week and letting go of the weekend, but we do this 52 times a year, so I think everything will go well. 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!

2023 Goals and Habits

Hello, the first Monday of 2023! Now that 2022 is behind us and we are starting this new year with a fresh start, we can set new goals without feeling too much pressure because we have the entire year to accomplish them😊! As I said in my post yesterday, I do not make New Year’s Resolutions because I feel they are pointless and most people, including myself, never stay with them. It is always important to make goals that are attainable or create new habits that may help us to achieve our goals. We should only set a few goals that we want to achieve because they are meaningful to us. Setting too many goals or new habits can be overwhelming and we may end up getting burnt out and then give up, which no one wants to do.

For the new year, one of my goals is to learn ways to not be so hard on myself. I have always been my own worst critic and I know this is not healthy. We should want to stay motivated and encouraged in life, which is impossible to do when we are constantly criticizing everything we do. There is already far too much negativity and, in this world, and we do not need to add to that by insulting ourselves. Instead of always telling myself that I am not good enough or that I am doing something wrong, I am going to try only repeating uplifting and encouraging words to myself daily!

Another goal or habit I want to do this year is to try doing a blog at least five times each week. I want to open my horizons and write about different topics that are meaningful to me. I have always had a deep love and passion for writing, so I think it is extremely important to try new things and learn different ways to write. I would love to try doing a writing contest again and not back out before I finish the essay because I think my essay will not be good enough. We never know what we are capable of unless we try, right?

Something else I want and need to do is find ways to limit stress in life. Even though I know that stress is the silent killer, I tend to allow myself to stress about things that I have no control over. It seems silly to be able to understand and admit that I stress about things I have no control over because it is clear there is nothing that I can do to change the outcomes, so what is the purpose? There are many things in life we have no control over and should not waste time thinking about because there are also many things we can control, which are mostly our reactions to situations and the way we treat others. We will never have any control over how others behave, so it is senseless to try.

There are certain types of books that I enjoy reading and need to start making more time during the day to read. I have a few books that are on my to-read list but have neglected the books because I am too tired or cannot find the time to read them. Even if it is only 20 or 30 minutes each day, I should be able to make time to read a little. Reading helps to relax after a long day and can help people sleep better!

One thing I will always keep doing is being kind and respectful to others. It is 2023 now and things should be much different than they are. I do not know why people stopped evolving but decided to devolve to an extremely terrible level. I will do everything that I can to help others see things in a fair and better way, but I know some that are stuck in their ignorant ways, and nothing will change them.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I look forward to reading your comments and learning about your goals for the new year. I hope your week begins well and gets even better with each day. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Once once again Monday has returned a little too soon, but let’s tackle this week with pure determination! I know the weekend was too short, but hopefully, this is going to be an amazing week that is filled with great opportunities! Do you have anything going on this week that you are excited about? No matter what insanity this week might throw your way, just remember that you can handle anything with grace and massive amounts of strength! I do know most everyone dreads the start of the week, but we all survive the madness and live to tell about it😊!

Of course, I do understand that it is not easy to be motivated after coming back from a weekend, but we all somehow always manage to find something that motivates us! I hope you will be able to feel some motivation from the quote that I am sharing with you today. Unfortunately, many of us experience daily pain and it lets us know we are still alive to fight another day! We all make mistakes in life, but as long as we learn from them they build our strength and make us wiser. No matter what happens in life, we are all just perfectly imperfect human beings that are trying the best we possibly can!

As I have said before, we are not always going to agree on everything, but I think we can all agree that life can be extremely demanding. This is the reason that I found the quote I shared motivating. As y’all know, I live in constant pain and it can create challenges, but that pain lets me know I am still alive and still able to make changes and help others when I can! I think we are all put here on earth for a reason and one reason is to be kind, loyal, compassionate, and understanding because those traits allow us to give back to the world.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found it motivating. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. I hope you have a wonderful start to the week and it gets better with each day that passes. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday

Welcome back to the beginning of a new week! The weekends are always way too short, but each week brings us new and amazing opportunities. How was your weekend? My weekend was uneventful and peaceful, which was nice. I did even get to sleep in a little on Saturday and the rest of the weekend I just took things slow. Sunday is always my day to get things done and I prefer to relax and rest on Saturday. I also spent a lot of time with our three cats, and there was rarely a time I did not have at least one of them on my lap.

As we have to say our goodbyes to the weekend and start a new week, which might feel long, we all need to find a way to stay motivated. I decided to share this quote with y’all today because I think we can all agree that life is complicated. With that being said, we need to find ways to learn how to be happy despite the challenges we face because there will always be something we must endure. Why not accept and welcome the challenges, instead of trying to ignore them? Sometimes facing issues head-on will make the complications easier in the long run!

Do you have anything going on this week that you are looking forward to or dreading? I have a follow-up appointment on Wednesday with my Neurologist. I know they have their policies, but I think this appointment is senseless and I do not understand why it cannot be done via Zoom. Honestly, this is probably my fault because I reached out to them after my appointment with the pain management doctor due to something I have been experiencing for weeks now. I do not think they need to see me in person to understand what is going on because I explained exactly how I will when I am face-to-face with them. Needless to say, I am not looking forward to this appointment and I am going to flat-out refuse having another MRI!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found the quote that I shared motivating and each day gets better until the weekend returns. I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as possible. No matter what challenges each day throws your way, never forget that you are strong enough to master anything. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

It is another Monday that returned way too quickly. Even though it seemed much shorter than normal, I hope you were able to enjoy your weekend. The weather where I live cannot seem to decide if it wants to be warm or cold, so I am still trying to adjust to the weather. Every year, I have a difficult time feeling okay until the weather stabilizes and remains constant. For some reason, this year has been very complicated and I am dealing with more headaches and other types of pain. I can only hope that Mother Nature will make up her mind soon so that my suffering can end!

Starting a new week and saying goodbye to the weekend is never easy. This can make it twice as hard to find motivation to tackle the new week. I do hope the quote that I am sharing with you today will provide you with some motivation and help you survive the first day of the week. Once we get through today, it can only get easier or at least that is what I keep telling myself! To be motivated, we must discover hope and hold onto it.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and I look forward to reading your comments. I promise that I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have an amazing start to this week and each day gets even better until the weekend returns again. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Here we are again, another Monday and a new week to get through. It never feels like the weekend is long enough, but I hope you were able to enjoy every minute of the weekend and that you are ready for a new week. I hope your week is full of amazing new opportunities and you can capture all of them with ease😊. It often seems impossible to let go of the weekend, I know our cats hate when Mommy has to work all day and leave them to cause LOTS of trouble. I hear them acting up during the day, it seems like we have elephants and not cats because they make SO many loud noises. 

It is important to try beginning a new week with a positive and motivated mindset. Yes, I know it is never easy, but we do it every week so I know we can do this. If we can view the week as an opportunity for success instead of a nuisance, we might be pleasantly surprised by how great the week will be😊. Life may always feel challenging and we have to try a little harder and believe that everything is going to work out the way it is meant to. Even if we do not understand at the time, I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. I do not believe people or events happen by mistake and they are all meant to teach us lessons or fulfill something that is missing.

How was your weekend? For some reason, I did not feel all that great over the weekend. I had a lot of pain throughout my entire body, which sucked! A really great friend, who reads my blog and knew about the pain I was dealing with in my feet and ankles sent me a surprise to try and help. What was sent to me were these amazing heated socks, which have already helped the pain in my feet. In a world full of hatred and violence, it is nice when one single person restores my faith in humanity. There are very few people that make me believe there are good people still in this world, but I am thankful that I do have a few in my life😊!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote helps keep you motivated and optimistic. I hope your week begins well and gets even better with each day. Try to take things one step at a time and not become overly stressed as this will never solve any problems, but it will create more. 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!

Monday has returned again and is a little too fast! Is it awful that it seems like it was just Friday yesterday? The weekends fly by and it often seems like we did not really have a full weekend. I guess, ready or not, it is time to begin another new week. I do hope your weekend was spent doing only what brings you the most joy and you were able to rest up yesterday to prepare for the week! My weekend was rather boring, but yet, I still did not get enough rest. I am looking forward to seeing what opportunities this week will provide though!

I believe the only way to start a new week is to try to be as optimistic and hopeful as possible. Of course, we all wish there was just one more day of the weekend, but it would be the same even if we had a three-day weekend! They are just never long enough. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today motivates you and provides you with the hope we all need. I do believe it is important to hold onto our dreams because if we do not give up they can become reality!

I hope your week begins well and only gets better with each day that passes. In our lives, we need to stay determined and we can achieve anything we want. I believe we are all capable of great things because we are all incredibly strong. If we keep our heads held high and believe in our abilities, we are halfway there! If you think about what you have already done in life, you will see how strong you are!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and I am looking forward to reading your comments. I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have an amazing day and remember to not get too stressed about anything you have no control over. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
