Motivational Monday

Happy and welcome to Monday, again. I hope y’all had a great weekend and you were able to enjoy every moment of it. I will be one of the first to admit, the weekend was not long enough and I am not completely ready for another week to begin, but it is happening whether we are ready or not. Logically I know that we should be thankful for each day, but Monday comes way too fast and the weekends fly by leaving most of us to wish we had just one more weekend day. I am sure no one will be surprised that I did not really do anything over the weekend, but unfortunately, I did have a really bad headache. It is a little ironic because I was working on a post about the different types of headaches and was not able to finish it because of a headache. The irony is a little funny, but more frustrating.

So, as we embark on another week some of us might not be ready for, I think a little motivation might be necessary. Each Monday provides us with an opportunity to try again on the goals we wish to accomplish. I think it is known and obvious that our goals are not going to be accomplished without us trying and never giving up, which takes both determination and discipline. The reason I choose this quote to share with y’all is that it resonated with me and the things I have gone through recently. Work has been a little chaotic and a little frustrating because there being so much change and no many answers. Also, I want to be able to accomplish one of the dreams I have had since I was younger and that is to someday write a book or at least have something I have written published. I feel like I owe this to myself and my late Grandfather who was not only a pro golfer but he was also a writer for his local paper.

Yesterday was Father’s day, which I did send my father, stepfather, and late Grandfather a message. Of course, my Grandfather is in heaven, but I put a post on his Facebook page for father’s day. If I am being completely honest, ever since my Grandfather passed away father’s day has been a little difficult and sad for me. My Grandfather was my hero, idol, and someone that I could always count on. He was someone that displayed kindness, love, equality, respect, and everything else that is wonderful every day of his life. I do not believe I will ever get over the loss of him but know that I will see him again someday.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have wrote and the quote I shared with y’all. I would love the chance to read what you thought and I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have a great day and that your week gets better with each day until we make it to the weekend again. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had an amazing and safe weekend, and you are ready to begin the new week with a positive mindset! Of course, I did not do much over the weekend, but that is just the normal weekend for me and I do not mind it at all. After the crummy week, I had last week, doing nothing over the weekend was best. I think sometimes we just need time to reset and clear our minds from anything negative, which is exactly what I needed more than anything.

Now that we are at the beginning of a new week, I think we could all benefit from a little motivation to kick start the week off right. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with enough positive and motivating energy to help this week be a good one for you. I would love the chance to know if this quote helped your week begin the right way but also hope that each day will make the week better until it is finally Friday again. I will be the first to say that it is not always easy to be happy, especially when things happen in our lives that are anything but happy. However, I do think if we have enough hope for better things in life to happen in time, a positive attitude can help remarkable things come to light! I do not think anyone has ever said life was going to be easy, but all we can do is continue to try! Never giving up takes strength, but we are all full of the necessary strength and determination!

No matter how this week starts for you, I hope you have a wonderful week! I know it can be easy to get discouraged when numerous things go wrong, but just try to keep moving forward and keep your chin up! I had mentioned to the Shipt delivery lady last week how awful my week had been. Unfortunately, on her way to the house she was hit head on by another driver and still managed to get the groceries I ordered to my house. I told her I would be happy to come pick her up, but she made arrangements with a friend of her to borrower her car because she wanted to get what was ordered to me. Thankfully, she was not injured at all, but maybe a little shaken up. Turns out, even though I thought my week had been terrible, her day was so much worse. She is an unusually remarkable person and dedicated to her customers.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed everything I wrote and l look forward to reading your comments, which I promise to respond to as quickly as I can. I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice and safe weekend! You might be enjoying a long weekend because of Memorial Day and now that the numbers of COVID are decreasing it is nice to be out among others, but I do hope you are still remaining safe. The numbers might be decreasing, but for some reason I am still a little skeptical and feel the need to continue wearing a mask when I leave the house. Not everyone has been vaccinated because of reasons I will never understand, but these are the people that are a hazard or at least they are in my opinion.

I have been trying to do a motivational quote every Monday and today is no different. The quote I am sharing today holds a lot of meaning, especially on Memorial Day. Our servicemen and women are willing to give their lives to keep others safe and that is truly honorable. My late grandfather and my husband’s late grandfather were both members of the military and they were both great men which had undeniable respect! I have spared before how much I idolize my late grandfather and miss him to this day! I do hope you will enjoy the quote I am sharing and look forward to reading your comments!

I hope your week starts well and you are ready for the week ahead of us. It is a short week, which always seems much longer, or at least they do to me. No matter what the week ahead holds for us, I know that we can all handle any and everything that might be. As I already stated, the COVID numbers are decreasing, but please continue to stay safe or at least do your best. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Hello & happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? Were you able to do anything fun and exciting over the weekend? I know how this is going to sound, but it is the truth, I cannot remember the last time I was able to leave and do something fun and exciting without worrying about COVID. It is insane how fast the “new” normal seems perfectly normal, but I guess it is what it is and life must go on!

The funny about Monday is, they are going to come whether we are ready for it. Monday morning is relentless and I guess the only thing we can do is hold on tight and enjoy the ride! It is never easy to be motivated on a Morning, but I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all will not only motivated, but inspired and determined to conquer the day and you week gets better with each day that passes by.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you liked the quote that I shared and I hope you have a great day! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice and safe weekend, and you are ready for this new week to start. Unfortunately, whether we are ready or not this week is starting and we have to make the most of it. Truthfully, I am thankful the weekend is over because it was not an easy weekend. Our poor little boy, Sundance, was not feeling well again and I ended up taking him to the emergency vet. The doctor at the emergency vet said his breathing and other vitals were all good, but he does seem to have an irritated stomach. We were sent home with medication and I hope he will start feeling better soon, but I am going to be calling his normal doctor this morning.

Now that we are beginning this week, we need to try doing so with a positive and motivated mindset. My hope is the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide this to you and help your week begin the best way you possibly can! I would love the chance to read your comments about this quote and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can! I like this quote for many reasons, but one reason is we should all understand the only thing we can change is the ways we react and deal with situations, and we cannot change how others do the same. Once we change things inside us, everything around us will change in a positive way!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed this quote and it offered you the motivation needed to begin this new week. I hope you have a great day and your week only improves with each day that goes on. I also wanted to say that I will be working on a post this week for a Blogger Recognition Award given by Caz at https://mentalhealth360.uk/. I do promise to do this during this week, Caz, and thank you again for this, you are a pretty amazing person and I am thankful to call you a friend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope y’all had a great and safe weekend! How ready are you for this new week to begin? It definitely seems the weekends are feeling a lot shorter and the weeks are getting longer. I guess as we age this is just normal, but not always pleasant. Would it not be amazing if our weekends could be longer and the workweek just be a lot shorter?

As we start this new week and say goodbye to the weekend, I think we could all use a little motivation to help us start on the right foot. I do hope you will find the quote I am sharing with y’all today motivating and encouraging. I am not a fan of fighting and would be the first to walk away before anything escalated, but many tat make a living in this manner. The person that said the quote I am sharing with y’all today is not just a fighter but has a journey she shared. There are some things about Rose’s past that really hits home to me and I can relate to. I would love to read what you think about this quote and promise to respond as quickly as I can!

I know I have not been doing my typical posts lately, but it was in part due to my not-so-fun dental issues. Y’all already know that I do have a major fear of the dentist and even though I can admit to it being irrational, it is a very real fear to me. I have another appointment this week with my new dentist and I had a good first experience with her when I met her. I know I have a lot of work that needs to be done, but I am going to take this in stride and try to not overly stress myself out. We will see how things go though, but I will keep y’all updated!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and if you have any interest in Rose’s life, I do encourage you to Google her. She has been through so much in life but has grown, overcome her struggles, and became a true inspiration to many. I hope you have a wonderful day and your week continues to improve with each day. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice and safe weekend. Are you ready for this new week to begin? I guess there is no turning back and we do not have a choice about the new week and just need to embrace it the best we can. Considering my weekend was full of stress because our poor baby boy cat was not feeling well and had to go to the doctor on Saturday morning. Then last week many people lost their jobs with the company I work for, this week has to be a little better or at least that is what I am hoping for. It is sad there were so many people laid off, but I hope this does not sound selfish, I am thankful to still have a job. I honestly could use another weekend to recuperate from the weekend I had, but bring on Monday!

This afternoon I have to go to the one place I dread more than just about anything, the dentist. The endodontist that will be doing my root canals on Thursday wanted me to see a dentist to help develop a comprehensive plan for what needs to be taken care of in my very screwed up mouth. It is awful that I do take care of my teeth and keep them clean, but because of the vast amounts of steroids I have been forced to take when I had relapses from the MS, my mouth is a mess and has many issues to address. I still hate the dentist, but I am sure I am only going to hate them more after this week.

Now that we are starting a new week and a new month, we need to try to stay motivated and optimistic. I cannot even believe it is already May because the first few months in 2021 have gone by super fast. Before you know it we will be saying “Merry Christmas”. Anyways, it is my hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with the motivation needed to begin this week and I hope your week gets even better with each day! I would love to read what you thought about this quote and everything I have written today, and I promise to respond as quickly as I can.

Thank you for reading this post and visiting my site. I always appreciate your support and the time you take to read. I hope you have a great day and you continue to stay safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Monday y’all. I hope you are doing well and your weekend was wonderful. I have not done any posts in about two weeks and I am so sorry for that. I mentioned to y’all a few weeks ago that I was dealing with tooth pain and it was just miserable. The dentist put me on an antibiotic which ended up making me feel pretty terrible, but I am doing a little better and just have to wait for the not- so-exciting root canal to be done. I am hoping to get back to normal with blogging this week because April is Stress Awareness Month and I do have some good information regarding stress. Considering I want to get back to my with blogging,

I want to share a motivational quote with y’all to get our week started on the right track. Many days during our lifetime we are forced to deal with struggles and we may forget that each struggle provides us with a learning opportunity. It is not always easy to recognize it, but ALL of the struggles and trials we endure in life offers us the strength and resilience we need for the days to come.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a great day and your week gets better with each day that passes. I will be doing a few posts regarding stress and I also have some fun news to share with y’all. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

~Let’s Start This Week With A HUGE Smile~

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice and safe weekend. My weekend did not go exactly the way I had planned because I did want to complete a post I started about Multiple Sclerosis but honestly did not have the energy needed. I think I might have been a little overly exhausted from the week and did not want to halfway write a post, especially one so meaningful to me. What I will say is, I will finish this post early this week and will not rush through it because I want to provide you with the best information I possibly can. It is amazing how one week can take so much out of us.

I was pretty stressed about a power issue we have in our house. Last week, on Thursday, the power in our basement only stopped working and our home offices are set up in the finished part of the basement. It did not make sense because the power in the upstairs was fine. My husband did check the several breaker boxes in the basement and one outside but did not see what the issue was. Thankfully, my mother-in-law gave me the number to the place we had a contract with before, which covers electricity and plumbing. The company is coming out today between the hours of 11-2, and I just hope the issue is not big and can be fixed easily today! I am a little nervous about having people in the house because of COVID, but I will wear a mask while they are here.

As we are beginning another long week, I think we could all benefit from a little motivation. My hopes are that the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you the motivation and encouragement needed to start this week on the right foot! We can all agree that the weekends are far too short and the weeks are way too long, but we are strong enough to make it. I hope you have a great day and your days only continue to get better with each day that passes. I would love the opportunity to read what you thought about the quote I shared with y’all today because your opinions matter to me.

My husband and I did not do anything for Easter because he had to work, but my mother and her boyfriend did send me a beautiful bouquet of my favorite flowers. The funny thing was, the flower shopped messed up a little and sent me two bouquets. Now I have one in the living room and one on my work desk! My favorite flowers are stargazer’s lilies. They smell so amazing and now the upstairs smell like them and my work area smells like the lilies as well! The flowers on the left are the ones I have in the living room and the ones on the right are on my work desk!

I do want to thank you for visiting my site today. I also want to apologize for not finishing the post I told you I was going to try doing this weekend. Fatigue and life really does create challenges way too much and I do not enjoy it at all. I can say that it was nice to relax over the weekend and try to eliminate my stressful thoughts. I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Let Us Begin This Week With All Positive Thoughts~

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice, relaxing, and safe weekend, and you are ready to begin this new week. My weekend was uneventful which is a great way to spend the weekend or at least it is for me. The only bad part of the weekend was I could hardly sleep but 2 hours on Friday night, so Saturday I was exhausted. The crazier thing was, there was no reason for me not to sleep Friday night. Normally, when I have sleepless nights I am worried about something or stressed and I do not think I was, at least not consciously.

As our week begins and the weekend has ended I always feel we might need a little motivation to get us started in the best way possible. I try to share quotes that I enjoy, but do hope the one I am sharing today will serve you with the motivation and inspiration you need. Most of us think of Jim Carey as a comedian, but he can be insightful like this quote indicates. Of course, I hope your week begins well and continues to improve with each day that passes. I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as I can, which will probably be when I am out of work.

As y’all know March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month and I am planning to do a few more posts about MS. I have my virtual appointment with my neurologist tomorrow afternoon and I am hoping we will be discussing the MRI I had several weeks ago. In the past, I was always nervous about hearing the results, but I did read the report and it looked to me as a good report with no terrible changes. I guess I will hear what the neurologist says and I will keep y’all informed.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great and safe day will very little unnecessary stress. I have learned over the years that most things I stress over are not as important as I think they are and should just let go of these things. I cannot say I always let go of things, but I am trying. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
