Tranquil Tuesday

Monday has come and gone, so hopefully, Tuesday will be much easier. For some reason, Mondays are always chaotic and dreaded. Yesterday was a mixture of good and bad, but nonetheless, I am glad it is over. The one thing that yesterday taught me is we always need to stand up for ourselves and never allow anyone to mistreat us, which means we can politely defend ourselves when someone speaks negative and ugly words to us.

Although we did survive Monday, we do still have a few more days to get through until the weekend returns again. I think not just on Tuesday, but every day of the week we need to discover calmness and peacefulness to avoid unnecessary stress. I am hoping the quote that I am sharing with y’all today brings peace and calmness. I do believe that the calmer we can keep our minds, the better we will feel. In order to stay strong and maintain our mental stability, we need to stay as stress free as possible.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found peace in the quote that I shared with you today. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I 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!

Tranquil Tuesday

I think that a congratulations is in order because we made it through the least favorite day of the week yesterday😊. Monday is typically a day we all dread because it means the workweek began. The weekend seems so far away, but in all honesty, the days do go by rather fast. Of course, we do have to get through five grueling days just to make it to a weekend with two of the shortest days ever, but it will all be worth it. It does appear that as I get older, the days, weeks, and years go much faster!

How was your Monday? Mine was not bad at all and in fact was better than my weekend. I had almost forgotten about a one-on-one meeting with my supervisor in the morning and for some reason, I always get nervous about meetings like these. I must say, I have one of the most amazing supervisors and the best one I have had in a long time😊! This was our first one-on-one meeting and it was wonderful. I seriously wish there were more people like her because she truly cares! Not only is she easy to talk to, she listens, which is not as common as it should be!

There is one day completed this week and four left, but I think the days will pass with ease. Considering we survived Monday😊, I do not think the rest of these days will be too bad. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will provide you with a sense of peace and calmness. Life can be stressful and we often need a reminder of how to live a calm and peaceful life. One thing that always brings me peace is the sound of the ocean. The sounds of the waves rolling in and back out are glorious and extremely peaceful.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote and it brings you the same peace it has given to me. The good thing about Tuesday is, we survived Monday and we are well on our way to the weekend again😊! I would love to know what you thought about what I shared today 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!

Tranquil Tuesday

By saying happy Tuesday, it means we made it through one of the hardest days of our week, Monday! I am not sure why, but it seems like Mondays are normally the busiest days of the entire week. I guess people had time to think about things over the weekend and they think it is best to share those thoughts every Monday. Who knows, but at least we made it through the first day of the week and now we get to handle the second day of this week! I am still very pleased to say the temperatures where I live will not get into the 90s and just remain in the 80s, which I can tolerate.

No matter what day of the week it is, we should all do the best we can to remain calm and not get overly stressed about things. If you think about it, does being stressed help solve any problems, or does it create more? I do tend to stress about things and I can say from my own experience that it does make things worst and cause additional health issues. I really enjoyed the quote I am sharing with y’all today and found it to be extremely true. I am going to try my best to stay calm and allow things to happen the way they are going to and wait for days to be clearer. I mean it can’t hurt to try, right? When you always do things the same way and nothing in life changes, why not try something new and be calm?

One thing that is going to remain a constant in life is that, life is difficult and we are thrown curve balls that disrupt our days. The only thing we can do is keep trying and never surrender to the challenges because the second we give up is the moment we fail ourselves. This is not about what others expect from us, but what we expect from ourselves. I do not believe we can ever fail in this life, but I do think the one way we can fail is giving up when success could be around the corner.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and one of the quotes I shared provided you with some inspiration and peace to make it through the day. 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!

Can you tell me why?

People throughout the United States enjoy celebrating the 4th of July. There are parades, fireworks, cookouts, and more that people “should” be able to enjoy. Why was this such an issue over the long weekend everyone was looking forward to? Why can people not enjoy life without fears of mass shootings? Why do some people not leave their homes because they worry about what could happen in society? Why is it so difficult for people to practice kindness and compassion for others, instead of the sick need to shoot innocent people? Why is there so much hatred filling the world? Why can all the people in one country not get along?

The questions I have asked are what evade my mind constantly. There are NO answers that will make sense to me because I feel the need to treat everyone equally. Yes, this might be something that makes me different from many other Americans and that is why I prefer to NEVER be like everyone else. When we desire to get along just to get along and not stand up for our beliefs, it does not ever fix anything! I would like to suggest you listen to this song and please tell me how it makes you feel!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpYeekQkAdc

When I was growing up, I was taught that the United States is a “free” and “welcoming” country, but this is far from the truth! No one is completely free, especially women as they no longer have control over what happens to their bodies. If everyone is not uniform, behaving, looking, believing, and speaking alike, they are too different and must be stopped. Why else would so many innocent people trying to enjoy the long weekend, going out to dinner, a movie, the grocery store, or anywhere else not in their homes be shot and killed?

For years now, my husband and I have stayed home safely. We never wanted to get COVID, especially due to my weak immune system, and we have been successful. We do not want to go out to dinner to celebrate or have a date night and not make it home because of the insanity in the country, again, we have been successful. I understand how short life is, but we do not want it to be made shorter because of something we have no control over. I know it seems like we are trying to live in a bubble, and this might be true, but there needs to be a massive change in the United States.

Have you ever wondered what other countries think when they see what is going on in this country? I do not have to wonder because I am told by people, I work with that live in Canada. They see the news here in the United States and shake their heads in utter disbelief as to how it could be true. The mass shootings, lies within our government, taking away a woman’s rights to her body, hatred filling our streets, and much more that should never happen! NO country is perfect, but most other countries do not have the damage as the United States does.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I know there are going to be many people that disagree with everything I have said and that is okay because you have a right to your opinion. I would love to read your comments and I will respect whatever you have to stay. I hope your long weekend has been safe and relaxing! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Thought Filled Sunday

It is a gloomy, but peaceful Sunday. I am not sure why, but I feel chilly and still feel drained from last week. Of course, weekends are “supposed” to be a time to recuperate and prepare for the week ahead, which I tried doing. Unfortunately, I still failed to catch up on the sleep loss from last week. I guess once we are sleep deprived and have missed out on many hours of sleep, we cannot ever get those hours back and we are forced to keep going, no matter how exhausted we feel. I know the end of the weekend is near and another long week is getting closer, but there is still time left for our weekend.

I am going to continue to try doing at least one post each day this week and hope to be successful in doing so. There are a couple of topics I am working on right now and hope to have at least one completed today. One crucial thing I will be sharing information about is the importance of mental health. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I feel this is critical to try to understand this complicated topic. At this time, I only can speak to the fact that the United States has failed miserably in providing care for individuals suffering from mental health issues.

Another topic I will be writing about is the differences between trust and forgiveness. Trust is important and fragile. It can take years to build trust in another person and seconds to break the trust. Once you lose trust in a relationship, there is no guarantee you can trust that person again. If you can work through the lost trust issues and try forming trust again, it takes time and patience. Even when we decide to forgive someone for their wrongdoings and betrayal, that does not mean trust is automatically replenished.

Another topic I would like to write about is the challenges involved in living with a chronic illness without a cure. Sadly, we have genius scientists and doctors around the world, but so many chronic illnesses still do not have a cure. I know this is not 100% true, but in 2022 there seems to be a steady increase in the numbers of illnesses and hardly any headway to curing these illnesses☹.

People should be trying to progress and evolve with the times, but that is not happening. One thing that continues to grow is hatred and mean behavior. When people do not understand the way another person lives, they become scared and decide the way another person is living is wrong and evil. This is a cowardly way to live in the world. It does not matter how another person lives “their” life, as long as they are not causing harm and they are happy, it should not matter or be the business of anyone else!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your weekend has been filled with everything that makes you happy. I have found it can be complicated to find topics to write about that will be intriguing to everyone, but I am trying. Honestly, some things I write about are to help me process issues in my life. I hope you enjoy the last part of your weekend! 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!

Tranquil Tuesday

I am not sure how because yesterday was a crazy day, but we survived Monday! The first day of the week always seems like torture because it is so busy, but Monday is OVER and I do not think Tuesday should be that bad. It is only my fourth week at my new job and things are going well, but it is SO different than anything I have done before. People are often nice and not as pushy as they were when I worked with mortgages, but they can be somewhat demanding. The people I work with are great and extremely helpful when I ask questions. I guess I cannot ask for better!

As the week continues, we must find ways to remain at peace and not get overly stressed. I think one of the best ways to stay calm and peaceful is to worry only about our progression and not what anyone around us is doing. Too many people enjoy putting others down and criticizing them, but that does not do anything productive. The more we tell others how great they are doing, the more they will try improving and that makes us better in the long run. Simple compliments can go a long way😊!

The people we allow into our lives are meant to be in our life. We might not understand why, but I can guarantee there is a reason and we should be thankful for them. I have said this before and will say it again because it is very true and means a lot to me, people do not come into our lives by accident and there is always a reason. Value those you love, appreciate their love and kindness. Never forget to express how you feel because we never know what tomorrow holds and no one is guaranteed another day in this world.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found deep meaning in everything. I look forward to reading your comments and I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. This is the second day of our week and I hope your week is going great.

Survived Monday- Happy Tuesday

Good morning Tuesday! Somehow we survived Monday, so it can only get better now! I was nervous about this week because our training group started live orders. I am happy to say, it was nowhere near as bad as I thought it was going to be. Honestly, yesterday was easier than any of our training days. I think being able to do the actual work and not in a training atmosphere made things clear and a lot more logical. It seems like I was making things a lot harder than necessary and was overthinking things too much. There was one point where I had to ask if I was doing things correctly because it seemed too easy.

Hopefully, we are all off to a great start to the week and you had a wonderful Monday. Successfully surviving the hardest day of the week is a good sign. Even though we did survive yesterday, we have a few more days to get through. I think today, we could use a little inspiration and I hope the quote I am sharing will inspire you and make you smile😊! No one wants to feel like they have failed anything, but sometimes we need to fail before we can know success.

Life can be challenging, but I do believe every challenge makes us stronger. We face many different issues during life and between the issues and challenges we encounter we learn additional valuable lessons that make us who we are. We should always be proud of who we have grown to be and also try to be understanding of situations others are dealing with.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared today and I look forward to reading your comments. I promise to respond to your brilliant comments as quickly as I can. 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!

Peaceful Tuesday

Somehow we successfully survived one of the most dreaded days of the week and are entering the second day of the week. We may not live in the same state or even the same country, but we all share the same world. The world we are connected through has been suffering from various challenges, some of which have been ignited from anger, hate, the desire for control, and selfishness. Finding peace during these troubling times can be challenging. We all have certain things that make us feel comfortable and at peace. What helps you to escape the upsetting feelings created in the world? I hope you will share these and to be fair, I will share mine with you as well.

I have always found music to be a wonderful escape from the chaotic issues in life. Music helps me to relax and find calmness in this life. Of course, certain music can alter my mood and bring me to a different type of happiness. I have certain songs I feel I can relate to, which makes me relive periods in my life. These songs help me to see certain situations in a different light. Other songs can make me smile on the worst days. Then there are songs I turn to when I need a good cry and after the tears fall, I feel I am in a better place emotionally.

Since I was a child, I have written my feelings out on paper. This helps me to discover clarity on life and the craziness that occurs. I do not feel pressured or like someone is going to judge my feelings because everything stays between me, the pen, and the paper. I enjoy writing poems when my emotions are torn and heightened for various reasons. Poetry helped me through several struggles when I was a young child and when I lost the man I thought of as a hero, my grandfather.

We are all going to have different ways to find peace. There is no right or wrong way because we are all different and that is okay. Life has a strange way of working itself out and even for the better. It is not important how we find peace, it is more important that we have peace in our lives! I do want to share a quote with y’all because this happens to be something else I enjoy. I love finding different quotes that I think are beautiful and hope you will as well. I thought this quote offered peace and hope you will feel it as well!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoy what I have shared and the quote provided you some peace of mind. This life is short and we should be living it to the fullest. There is no need for hate or causing harm to anyone because we should be showing kindness and love. 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!

Good News, Finally!

Hello and welcome to Saturday! Hopefully, you will have a nice, relaxing, and safe weekend! There are so many challenging and disturbing things happening in the world today and unfortunately, many of these challenges feel like they will not end. Ukraine is still under siege, but the people are staying as strong as they can. I admire the Ukrainian people’s determination and their President’s strong will to stand for his country. We all need a leader that has hope, loyalty, faith, and strength in the country they represent. I know I have said this in all of my posts recently, but please continue to pray for those in Ukraine because they need as many prayers and hope as we can offer.

After several days of being stressed about getting the medication needed to prevent my Multiple Sclerosis from progressing, I finally heard from the Gilenya Go Program yesterday morning. I was terrified I was going to be forced to go without the Gilenya for an extended period, but thankfully I am going to be receiving it on Wednesday. Missing three days of this medication will not cause too many issues, so my stress levels have decreased somewhat. I am fully aware of how bad stress is for everyone, but it causes me to experience unwanted relapses.

What do you have planned for the weekend? As always, I do not have anything super exciting planned, but I will be working on the essay for the writing contest and the short story I have been working on. I also have a few posts that I want to finish before the weekend is over. I am wanting to finish the book I have been reading by one of my favorite authors, James Patterson. I find James Patterson’s writing to be inspiring and amazing. If you were able to meet one author, would you want to meet? I think it would be amazing to meet and chat with James Patterson because I would love to understand where his thoughts and processes come from.

Thank you for stopping by my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared, and I look forward to reading your comments. I promise to 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!

Saturday peaceful and inspiring thoughts

Why is Saturday a great day? It is the first day of the weekend we all look forward to. We might not have any exciting plans, but it is a day many of us do not have a million things to do. Even though I do not have to get up early, my internal alarm clock or rather my cats get me up early. However, even though I always get up early, the only things I have to do are take care of the cats, my husband, and clean the house. I am still planning to do some things that I want to do because they bring me happiness. It is not easy finding the simple pleasures in life that bring happiness, especially when the pain I feel never goes away.

One of my goals for my blog is to try spreading positivity and inspiration to everyone that reads my posts. There is already too much negativity and stress in the world, so I think we all need reasons to believe in hope and kindness. Some days might be hard and the struggles are intense, but if we can help each other to be inspired and positive, it can make an enormous difference in someone’s life.

This weekend, well tomorrow at 2:00 AM if you live in an area that does time change it is time to set clocked ahead an hour. I think that time change is a little insane. Even though most states take part in time change, certain cities that do not. I cannot imagine if someone works in an area that does time change but lives in one that does not or visa versa. It seems like it would get a little confusing. How do you feel about time changes twice a year?

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your weekend is going well so far and you are able to enjoy the short weekend as much as possible. I hope you enjoyed the quote that I shared with you today and look forward to reading what you thought about it. I am also excited to see what your thoughts are about time change. I want to remind y’all to also continue keeping Ukraine in your thoughts and prayers! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
