Motivational Monday

Happy Monday, y’all! I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend! I do not know if it was the heat or fatigue, but I was a little slack from blogging last week. I am going to do my best to back in the swing of things again and do better. It never fails, as the weather causes extremely hot temperatures, I end up feeling more exhausted and my pain levels increase rapidly. I have lived in the south more than 20 years and do not think I will ever get used to how incredibly HOT it gets, but I do think it has been worst in the last decade or so.

I would like to start this new week off being motivated and optimistic. Of course, the weather has been a struggle for me and it has not been easy, but do not want to allow this issue to hold me down. I hope you are going to find the quote I am sharing with you today motivating and it helps to carry you through the days until the weekend returns. I think it is important for us to hold onto our dreams and never let them go. Life is always going to be challenging and we will never stop experiencing difficult times, but our dreams can carry us through them all.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. I hope you have a lovely week and you do not deal with any extra stresses. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Well, it is Monday again. Most of us probably are not ready for it, but they do happen every week and we manage. I am not as disappointed today because I only have a few days until I meet James Patterson. I do not think anything could ruin this week for me, well unless the meet and greet is canceled. How was your weekend? I hope you enjoyed every minute of it and you were able to rest and do what makes you happy. I did not do much of anything because I was battling a headache the majority of the weekend, but I did finish one of the books I wanted to.

Considering Mondays are often one of the most dreaded days, we all must find a way to be motivated and stay motivated throughout the week. Although it sometimes feels easier to give up and throw in the towel, we will discover many more amazing opportunities if we keep trying. Yes, sometimes pain can be a factor and that can make us want to stop trying, but pushing forward and continuing to try will make life much more fulfilling! We never will know what we are capable of if we do not try!

I do not think I will ever understand why the weekends go by so fast. It still feels like Friday afternoon and I am ready for the weekend to begin. I know my cats hate when the weekend ends because then they have to wait all day until they can fight over or share my lap, which they do love. For some reason, yesterday I broke down in tears thinking about our sweet cat Chloe that passed away. It is surprising how quickly and unexpectedly the memories come back. It always hits me like a ton of bricks. Please do not get me wrong, I love our three cats, but I would give anything to have Chloe back in our lives! She was a sweet little angel.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I shared and the quote offered you a little motivation. I am counting down the days until Friday and it will never get here soon enough. This might sound crazy, but I even have an outfit picked out to meet James Patterson in. 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!

It is hard to believe, that we are back to the start of the week again. It always seems like the weekends fly by so fast, but the weeks drag by like a snail in quicksand. We just have to make it through five days and then the weekend will return, I just hope the week is not full of stress and utter nonsense again, but let’s face it if it is there is not much we can do to change it. We always need to try our best to handle the challenges of the week with dignity and grace, and never allow anyone to steal our happiness.

After we let the relaxation of the weekend go and strive to manage through the week with motivation and strength, we could all use a little extra guidance on a Monday morning. I hope you find the quote I shared today motivating and it provides you with the strength we all need to begin the week. Considering the weeks have been increasingly stressful for me, I decided that I am not going to agree to do any overtime because my mental well-being is more important than a few extra dollars! We cannot avoid the workweek, but we can adjust how we handle our work and ways to prevent additional stress!

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and you are ready for the new week. Please remember that you are important and to never allow anyone to ruin your day and cause you stress because it just is not worth it. When people are unhappy in their lives, they seem to want to bring others down and make them miserable. We have all heard that misery loves company, but we deserve to be melancholy. Instead of letting anyone bring you down, try to keep a smile on your face, know your worth, and bring the other person up to your level!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed this post and you gained a little extra motivation. I hope your day is full of amazing and well-deserved opportunities, and little to no stress. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as soon as I can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Hello Monday! Our weekends go by so fast and the week returns. It seems like Friday was just minutes ago and now we are back to the beginning of the week again. It does not matter if we are ready, the new week is here. I hope your weekend was spent doing what brings you joy and you were able to relax and rest. I know I needed more than two days to recuperate from last week because last week was pretty awful. No matter how last week went down for us, let’s hope this new week is much better!

I think it is important to begin the week with a positive and fresh state of mind. We cannot go back in time and change anything that occurred last week, but we can learn from any mistakes that were made. Honestly, I learned a lot from last week and there are mistakes I will NEVER make again. I hope what I am sharing with y’all today provides you with motivation and courage to take on this week with determination!

Is there anything you are looking forward to this week? Our weeks are supposed to offer us a new beginning and opportunities, so I hope this week offers you that and more. It is only Monday and I am already looking forward to Friday, but I am sure as the week progresses I will have a better outlook. I am having a hard time letting go of some negative things from last week, but I am trying!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week begins well and gets better with each day that passes. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you today and I look forward to reading your comments. I will respond to all 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!

Today we welcome Monday’s return and find the strength to tackle another week. As always the weekend went by in the blink of an eye and we are left with the short-lived memories, which I hope were wonderful and joyful. We need to view the week as a week filled with many amazing opportunities because that is what all weeks should provide. Sometimes, we need to create and go after the opportunities because they are not always clear.

Staying motivated on a Monday can be challenging, but we are all strong enough to do so. While finding the ability to stay motivated, we all need to remain and understand what it means to be humble. I believe the more we can be humble and understanding of others, the more motivated we will feel! I hope the quote I shared today offered you strength, motivation, and encouragement. I understand not looking forward to Monday and another long week of work can be, but the weekend will return soon!

Unfortunately, nothing much has changed with my constant migraines. They never get any easier, but I try to not let them control my life. Yesterday I woke up with a nasty migraine and it never got less intense all day. Of course, my sweet cats tried to help me feel better because that is just what they do. All animals, no matter how needy they are or how aggravating they can be are all just innocent little creatures filled with nothing but love!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you had a nice weekend and you are prepared for the week ahead of us. It might seem like it is a lot time before the weekend returns, but we need to stay focused and time will pass quickly! 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!

~Motivational Monday~

I am always surprised at how fast time flies. Today is the first Monday of May, which means we are almost halfway through this year! I think we have all heard people say the time goes faster the older we get, but I prefer to not think of myself as old, yet. I do try to view age as just another number because that is all it is. Yes, it also shows how long we have survived this insane world, which can be considered a success because we are all living in a crazy world!!

Hopefully, we are all prepared for another LONG week of work because ready or not it is here. I am as prepared as I can be and also hoping it is not as bad as last week was. In preparation for the week, we must find ways to stay motivated and optimistic! I find the quote I am sharing with y’all today encouraging, motivating, and positive, but I hope you will as well. I can be hard to recognize our strengths at times, but we all have a powerful strength inside us😊!

I hope your weekend was filled with everything that brings you happiness. Most of the time our weekends are so short and to the point, it feels we did not have one, but we will have another in a few days! I did not do much over the weekend because I was not feeling well. I know a lot of why I was feeling so awful is because I did not get much sleep at all. The feeling of weakness and exhaustion are a terrible combination.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote offered you some motivation. I looked forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Monday morning always returns without hesitation or delay and we are meant to tackle this week with diligence and determination😊! Of course, we would all prefer it be Saturday or even Sunday, but this is going to be a great week with many amazing opportunities. I already know it is going to be a chaotic week, but I know I can handle anything that is thrown my way, and all of you can as well. We sometimes need a constant reminder of this because it is easy to get discouraged and frustrated, so I am making a sign to hang over my desk to be a continual reminder.

I know none of us are ready for another new week, but I also have faith in all of you that we can manage. We might also require a little motivation to get into the best mindset. I hope y’all will find the quote I am sharing with you motivating and it kick starts your week in the best of ways. The reason I decided on this quote is that life often feels like an endless cycle of darkness and sadness, but if we can concentrate on the positive things in life, it can make a tremendous difference! I understand fully that there is way too much negativity in our lives and in this world, but there are also many amazingly beautiful things as well!

I hope your weekend was full of everything that brings you the most joy and you remained as safe as possible. We can all agree that the weekends are way too short, but that will probably never change. I think we should have four-day workweeks and three-day weekends because it would allow for us to have more quality time with family and friends. Work-life balance is important and something we should have without question, but I think some employers would disagree with me. I understand having a shorter workweek may never happen, so I am just thankful to have a job working from home where I am safe!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared and the quote provided you a little motivation for Monday. I am looking forward to reading your comments and will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope you have an amazing day and that each day that follows until Friday gets better and better. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

It cannot possibly be Monday already, can it? It seems like it was Friday afternoon twenty minutes ago. I know the weekends are short, but it feels like the weekend went missing or was skipped. How was your weekend? I have been dealing with nasty sinus and increased pain issues for days. I guess the sinus and pain issues made it seem like I did not have a weekend, but I guess it could be worst.

Recently, I discovered some great news, my favorite author and writing role model is going on tour. Since I discovered James Patterson’s series, The Women’s Murder Club, I have been hooked and obsessed. I mentioned in a previous post that meeting James Patterson would be a dream come true for me and I am excited to say, I am planning to meet him on June 9th! Even better than the chance to meet my writing idol, he is going to be in my favorite place, the beach!

Whether we are ready or not, the new week has started. Saying “goodbye” to a weekend and beginning another week is never easy. We need to find ways to stay motivated and tackle the week with determination and strength. I hope you will find the quote I am sharing with you today motivating and it offers you the strength to get through another week. No matter how you feel about the week beginning, I believe each week holds many amazing opportunities for all of us. The only thing we must do is keep trying, stay positive, and NEVER give up!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you are feeling well and you have a fantastic week. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. For whatever reason, if your day does not go the way you expected it to, tomorrow is a new day so do not get discouraged! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Hello again to Monday! It never seems like the weekend is long enough or Monday comes back too fast. I guess it is what it is and we must tackle the week the best we can. Hopefully, this week will be a good one and you will have more strength and opportunities than last week. My post from Friday probably showed how the end of my week was, but that is the past and I will not let it distract from the good that can happen this week.

With the new week beginning, we need to find a way to stay motivated. I know it is not easy because Monday mornings are a rude awakening to the fact the weekend is gone. I hope the quote I am sharing provides you with the motivation needed to start the week in the right mindset. Never forget your self-worth because you are strong and deserve nothing but the best from this life.

How was your weekend? Of course, I know it was not long enough and we are never able to get everything we want to do. The good news is, that the weekend will return again and we can plan ahead as to what we want to get accomplished. My weekend was not extremely eventful and I did not write as much as I wanted to, but I was dealing with fatigue, pain, and sinus issues. What a great way to spend the weekend, right?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote and it motivated you to manage the week with confidence and strength. Never allow anyone else to define how your life will be and find a way to discover how you want to define your life! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Welcome back to another Monday. The weekend went by way TOO fast again, but today we are being provided another opportunity to have a successful week. We may have not been able to accomplish everything we wanted to last week, but that is okay because we can try again this week. I might be a little nervous for this week because I will be doing more with my new job, thankfully I will still have support from others if I run into something I am not sure of. If I can stop questioning my abilities and knowledge, I know I will do perfectly fine.

Now that the new week has started, we might need some motivation to get in the right state of mind. It is not easy when the weekend ends and we are forced to start another week. I think we can all agree that the workweek is extremely long and demanding, but we are all strong enough to handle anything thrown our way. I hope you were able to find deep and meaningful meaning in the quote I shared with you today. I found this motivating and inspiring, but would love to know what you thought!

For some reason, I ran into writer’s block this weekend. I had so many ideas that I wanted to write about, but when I sat down to start on something, I was not able to get anything finished. I assume it might be because I felt so worn out and struggled with a lot of pain, but who knows? Do y’all ever struggle with writer’s block and if you do, how do you overcome it? This is a frustrating thing to deal with! I often think I have too many thoughts in my mind and it is overwhelming.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you had a lovely and relaxing weekend, and you are ready for the week ahead. I am looking forward to reading about what you thought about the quote I shared and any advice you have on writer’s block. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
