Tranquil Tuesday

I must say that surviving the most dreaded day of the week deserves praise and congratulations😊! Monday is never very exciting, but I do hope it was not too bad for y’all! Yesterday was not all bad for me, it was of course, a little busy but nothing that I cannot handle. I think it is just difficult to let go of the weekend when we can relax and not wake up to an alarm clock. Anything we were not able to get done yesterday, we have another chance today! Unfortunately, today I get to drive on the worst road in the world to go to my routine follow-up appointment. These appointments are useless because nothing ever changes!

Moving into the second day of the week is a good thing because it means we are one day closer to the weekend. Yes, I am already ready for the weekend😊! Regardless of how many days are left in the week, we need to try to remain calm and handle things as they come, instead of thinking about what might happen! I really enjoyed the quote that I am sharing with y’all today and hope you will as well, and that it offers you a sense of calmness and strength! I think it is easy to forget how incredibly strong we all are because life gets chaotic. No matter what occurs in our lives, never doubt yourself because YOU can handle anything! NEVER let anyone ever tell you that you cannot do something because you can do anything!

I know many of us must deal with various different doctor’s appointments, right? Today the appointment is just with my pain doctor and I like her because she is kind and easy to talk to. I think it is important to always be prepared for appointments, which means having notes for what you need to talk about, prescriptions that need to be filled, and any other concerns you might have. It is so easy to forget to mention things when in the exam room, so it is best to be ready and prepared because getting in touch with a doctor after the appointment seems nearly impossible!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I appreciate you taking the time to read what I share and hope you enjoyed. I hope you found the quote calming and it helps you survive another 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!

Tranquil Tuesday

The good news is we somehow managed to survive Monday, which tends to be the most challenging day of the week! Yesterday, was much busier than it has been for a few weeks now. More work meant there were many more customers who thought their orders and problems were the MOST important. Thankfully, I am good at providing good customer service and giving them my undivided attention. It does help that I have friends in the other departments that can help resolve issues quickly and seamlessly! I only wish that everyone I deal with did things the same way because my dentist still has not spoken to me about the issues I have been dealing with since my tooth extraction. The nonstop static sound playing in my ears and head is incredibly annoying!

Moving along to the second day of this week. Tuesday should be a lot calmer and not as busy, but we will see. I do not mind busy days because it makes the day go by SO much faster! Today, I do have a few meetings, one of which is my normal one-on-one with my supervisor, which I never mind because I adore her! Considering we made it through Monday, each day should get better until we make it through the week. I always think it is important to try to seek out calmness during the week and I hope the quote I am sharing provides that to you! It is not easy to find peace in this world because it is so chaotic and full of hateful situations that we see on the news. I do try my best to avoid the news because it is so depressing and there is not a lot that I can do.

How did your week start? I know it is not easy, but letting things get you stressed is not worth it. It is important to try to understand the things you do have control over and not waste your time on what you have no control over. The only thing stress does is make matters worst and can cause unnecessary health issues, and if you live in the United States costs more money because our healthcare system is very unfair. Of course, I say this, and I do allow stress to consume me, which causes MANY issues with Multiple Sclerosis. 

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have enjoyed what I shared and that you found the quote a nice reminder of peace. Staying at peace and maintaining that peace is what will help us all through our time in this world. I hope you are having a good week and your Tuesday is filled with everything that makes you happy and content! I do 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!

Sunday Thoughts

Happy Sunday, y’all! I hope you have been able to enjoy your weekend😊! It is so amazing how short the weekends are, but how quickly the months pass by. It feels like January just began and yet we are more than halfway through the month. Were you able to do anything you wanted to over the weekend? Honestly, I have tried spending the weekend doing nothing. Unfortunately, I have been experiencing the VERY unwelcome. MS Hug again. I am not sure why this MS Hug was not made aware of social distancing because it has gotten WAY too close for me. I have always been uncomfortable when people get too close to me because I appreciate my personal space. I know that it will pass, but it is not passing soon enough. A heating pad helps some and no number of tears make will it go away any faster☹.

Even though things did not go the way I would have hoped the first time I tried, I am considering doing another writing competition. The difference in the one I am thinking about doing is I have a choice to either do a personal essay or I can do an article based on something I have researched. I have always enjoyed researching and think this would be an exciting adventure. The bad part about trying this is that I have always questioned my abilities and never thought that I was good enough. Of course, I also think that if I do not at least try I will always wonder what could have been. Do any of you have any advice or suggestions?

For most people, Sunday is a day to rest and prepare for the week ahead of us. Normally, I try getting laundry done today and anything else I was not able to do during the week. Today, where I live is rainy with a slight chill in the air, but I will still finish the one load of laundry I did not get done yet and relax with the cats on the couch. I am also going to think about writing ideas for the competition that I may or may not participate in. Who am I kidding? I do fully plan to do the competition because if I do not, I will always wonder what might have happened.

What do you think about change? Do you think that in 2023, the world should be more accepting of others and the way they choose to live THEIR lives? Do you think we should have evolved much more than many have? I am not trying to push my views onto anyone else, but I do not think anything should trouble our lives unless it negatively affects our daily lives. It does not affect my life if two people get married out of love, even if they are of the same sex. Another thing that does not affect my daily life is transgender. The United States is SUPPOSED to be a free country and unless we have been lied to for decades, we can all live our lives the way we want, which means we are allowed to love who we love, be whoever we want to be, follow the religion we want and read the bible associated with that religion, and anything else as long as it does not harm another person!

Do you think that our governments tell us the truth? Would it be so hard to believe that we are not being told the truth about things in this world? Why are many of us not being treated fairly and able to have healthcare that is the best for us, which would be free or at least a lot more affordable? Why do so many have to suffer from an illness we are told there is no cure for? Would it be so hard to believe that there are cures for many of the diseases in the world, but only for an extremely HIGH amount? I do believe anything is possible!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and that you are having a good weekend. I know some of what I have written can be a little controversial and some of you may disagree with me, which is completely within your rights. I would love the chance to read 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

Saying hello to Tuesday means we made it through the most difficult day of the week, which is a great success😊! How was your day yesterday? My day was pretty good and not too busy. I had my monthly one-on-one meeting with my supervisor, which went great because she is the best supervisor and so understanding! I let my supervisor know that I have been helping my co-worker with insane political views, which she informed me that I did not have to do anymore because she was “supposed” to be communicating with someone else that was delegated to be her mentor. I do not mind helping others because it is just in my nature, but I have too many people coming to be sometimes and it gets a little overwhelming.

Many of us only have to work four days this week because of Thanksgiving, but it is still important to remember to stay calm and at peace at work. Unfortunately, we do not live in a positive world because there are still SO many negative people that are full of hatred. Instead of allow the negative to control our lives and destroy our sense of good, we need to surround ourselves with kind, understanding, compassionate, and optimistic people. The more we surround ourselves with people with a positive mind, the more we can influence others to feel that same way!

Do you have any plans for Thanksgiving? I believe we are going to be celebrating with our three cats in the warmth and comfort of our home, which will be nice. It has been so cold where we live and I prefer to stay home and not go out in the chilly weather. I am thinking that I am going to make my husband something he likes to eat for dinner, which might be challenging because I have never made beef stew before, but I found an easy recipe to follow with a crockpot! I know most people would want turkey because it is Thanksgiving, but we normally do things a little differently than everyone else! Heck, I used to make lasagna because it is something I know how to make and am good at!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you found the quote helpful and it makes you feel at peace! I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as I can. I hope your week has been good up until this point and it keeps getting better! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday!

I honestly do not know how I managed to get through Monday because I started having this massive and miserable migraine on Sunday night, which never let up until late yesterday. Even though it did let up some last night, it was still extremely uncomfortable. I was not even able to do my normal “Motivational Monday” post because I could not think or see clearly. I hope your week started better than mine did. Somehow, I managed to work a full day yesterday. Mondays are typically busy, but thankfully, it was a pretty slow and easy day! If it had been busy, I highly doubt I would have made it through the entire day.

We all did make it through the first day of the week, which I know most of us dread. I do hope today will be another easy day, but I do not think I am that lucky of a person! Regardless, we all need something that offers us a sense of peace and calmness. I hope the quote I am sharing today provides you with a calm and peaceful feeling because even though we made it through Monday, we do have a few days of the week left. I am the type of person that tries to avoid confrontation as much as possible and would prefer to walk away from disagreements. I think arguments and or disagreements cause us too much unnecessary stress and I know what it can do to the body. Stress is the “silent” killer and makes my illness (Multiple Sclerosis) much worst!

Considering I was unable to do a post yesterday, I was not able to say that I hope you had a nice weekend! Did you do anything exciting? I did not do anything too exciting and Sunday was an evil migraine day. One of the most amazing things that happened on Sunday was our cat that NEVER gets up on the bed, did get on the bed and snuggled with me. I think she was trying to help my headache with her gentle purr. This is a picture of our cat, Willow on the day I was out of work sick with pain. She remained on my lap most of the day in a similar position! She is a sweet and precious little girl with a loving heart!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you loved the quote as much as I do. I would love to read your comments and I will respond as quickly as I possibly can. I hope you have a nice and calm day, and you remember there is not amount of stress you can experience that is going to fix the situation and it will only make things worst. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Never Give Up

At this point, I am not sure how we survived Monday. The day itself was not too bad, just another Monday and fighting against getting used to the time change. It really should not be too hard because we did gain an hour of sleep, but the change to sunlight is a little challenging. Of course, regardless of when the alarm clock is set to go off, I am always awake before it has the chance to make that awful and piercing sound. Needless to say, I was awake for more than an hour before my alarm was going to go off. Super annoying, but it will get better.

The strangest thing happened to me last night and I still do not understand it. It was close to 9:00 PM and suddenly, I had this intense pain in my lower back and abdomen. This pain was so awful I was on the floor unable to move and catch my breath. It felt similar to the MS Hug, but MUCH worst. I have dealt with the MS Hug many times before and it was never as bad as things got last night. My husband was so concerned he wanted to take me to the emergency room, but I refused because I was hoping it would get better. I felt so terrible, I hardly could eat dinner.

I guess the only good thing about living with Multiple Sclerosis is it pushes me to limits I never knew I had. I know this evil disease is not going away anytime soon, so the only choices I have is to fight hard or give up. The choice is clear because I refuse to surrender to this disease. It may win the battle at times, but I am going to win the nuclear war we are battling. I strongly believe that the only way I can fail with Multiple Sclerosis is to let it win and do whatever it wants. For as long as I am still able to breath, I will continue pushing my limits and prove that I am too strong to lose.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed this post and it provided you with the determination and peace to keep pushing forward. Trust me, it is NOT easy to push your limits, but it may surprise you as to what you can accomplish in this life. 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!

We made it through Monday, so I believe the rest of the week will be a breeze! How was your first day of the week? Mine was not too bad, but it did feel long. I think it was only long because I am working longer days because I have to leave work early on Wednesday because of my doctor’s appointment. The good thing about working longer days is I get to start my day earlier, which I do prefer. My preference does not make sense to many people, but I would rather start earlier and get out of work earlier!

I think it is extremely important to remain positive during the week, but also try to stay calm and not let the simple things consume our minds. It is important to have patience in life, which I do not have, but I do try. Even though patience is important, it is also crucial to go after the things we want in life because life is short and we do not want to let amazing opportunities pass us by. Whether it is something at work or something we have dreamed about doing, we should try to go after it with passion, strength, and determination.

I have decided to do something that I think is exciting. I already told y’all about the daith piercing that I wanted and got recently. There is another piercing that I would like to do soon, like hopefully this week. The helix is another piercing that is in the ear and I think it is very adorable. Unfortunately, one of the places I was considering going to will not pierce this area with the hoop as I want, so I will probably go back to the overpriced place that did my daith. Hopefully, they will be able to use the same color jewelry that I have in the daith! I figure, why not, we only live once and piercings can be removed easily!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and you found meaning in the quote. I hope you have a great day and remember to pace yourself so that you do not get overly and unnecessarily stressed. 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!

We successfully survived the most challenging day of the week! How was your Monday? Yesterday was not awful, but it was certainly not great. I am glad it is over and hope today is not a recap of yesterday. It often feels like Monday is longer than the entire weekend, plus Friday😉. I guess the good thing is it is over and today is a new and better day! Are you ready to leave Monday in the past and begin another day? I definitely am because this means we are one day closer to the weekend!

After yesterday and knowing we have a few days left this week, I think we could all use a little peace and calmness! It does not matter who you are, everyone deals with challenges and frustrations. I think many people “try” to portray that they are perfect and have a perfect life, but that just is NOT reality. Just remember, it is okay to not be okay, to not be picture perfect, and perfectly okay to just be the perfectly imperfect YOU! It is more important to be who you are and live your life in a way that brings you the most joy!

The life we are living is full of challenges that make us stronger and provide us with the knowledge we need in life. No matter what we are forced to deal with in this life, try to view them as knowledge, and strength, and know that they all build the person we are. Nothing about who we are makes us weak, no matter what anyone tries to say. The hate people feel only shows the kind of person they are and that they are struggling with something internally. People who are miserable in life seem to want to bring others down with them. Misery loves company, but do not allow that company to be you because YOU are worth more!

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.

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!
