Pick-Me-Up Thursday

I know I said this is “Pick-Me-Up” Thursday, but let’s not think of today as just another Thursday and instead view today as Friday Eve! Seriously, this week has been long enough and Friday eve makes it seem so much better because it has the word “Friday” in it😊! How has this week been for you and how happy are you the weekend is so close😊? Even though the week has felt long, the only terrible day was Monday because of the left over migraine that refused to let me alone!

We have survived the majority of the week and we just have one last day to get through until we are home free and can enjoy the weekend! I feel we could use just a little pick-me-up to help us through the end of this week and I hope you will find the quote I am sharing helpful! I have always felt that music was powerful and magical. Yes, we can listen to the music and enjoy the way it sounds, but it does not take much to feel the music. I do find the way musicians put together the instruments and the lyrics to create something incredible. Many times just listening to a song, you can understand how the writer of the song was feeling and what they were going through in life! Music is what gets me through the long days of work!

Are you someone that enjoys music and if so, what kind of music do you prefer? There have been days I wake up with a song in my head and even some nights there is music playing in my mind! This might sound slightly insane, but I promise it is not that I am hearing voices😊I think music might be part of my soul! I have my favorite songs I listen to when I am feeling down or even when I am extremely happy, but there are millions of amazing songs out there of all genres.

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 what kind of music you enjoy the most! I hope you have a wonderful and stress-free day, and your plans for the weekend keep your spirits lifted. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

I try my best to never miss work, especially considering I work from home, but I did have to miss work yesterday. I have been dealing with increased pain and dizziness for several days, which I am assuming has to do with the constant weather changes because my body takes time to adjust so when the weather changes too frequently, I do not have time to adjust. The weather changes tend to wrack havoc on my body and make me miserable, but I should be used to this after over 20 years of living with Multiple Sclerosis.

It has always been difficult for me to call out of work sick because I end up beating myself up about it and think I should have just pushed myself a little harder. Missing work yesterday took a lot for me to do, but I will say I needed the time to take care of myself, which has never been something I was good at doing. I am much better as the caretaker of others than I am at taking care of myself. Even though I hated missing work, I will say that my amazing supervisor was understanding and a few of my co-workers even sent me messages to check on me. I guess you can say, I work with some incredible and very caring people😊!

We have made it through the majority of the week and only have a couple of days left before the weekend returns. With that said, I think we could all use a little pick-me-up to help us through the final part of the week! I hope you will enjoy the quote that I am sharing with you today and that it provides you with the fight to get through the last part of this week! The worst thing we can do to ourselves is to be an obstacle and get in our way of success because we are better than that and deserve more. We are strong and amazing individuals with much determination and strength! Of course, we all need a reminder of this!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have had a good week and you are feeling well. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and you found the quote helpful to get through the rest of the week. 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!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

I am not going to say happy Thursday because I prefer thinking about today as Friday eve! The weeks seem to feel much longer than normal and I cannot figure out why! The only thing that has changed is the weather is much cooler, which I do like because I do not do well when it is super HOT! The weather has been much easier to tolerate, which makes sleep better! I do feel rather lucky because one of our cats feels she MUST sleep with me all night long. The other night the poor little girl cuddle up and did not move once, which caused me to wake up with my arm dead asleep😊! After a long day dealing with people that want to complain, my cats are one of the only things that make everything better.

Yesterday, I had my second one-on-one meeting with my supervisor, which I used to dread or panic about but I do not anymore. Not only do I have one of the best supervisors I have ever had, but I also have an amazing team to work with😊. These are things that make going to work easier as we are working more than we are at home enjoying life. Of course, I do work from home, but I am meaning home doing nothing but relaxing with my sweet and loving cats!

Thankfully, we are near the end of the week, which makes the weekend MUCH closer. At this point, we can almost taste the weekend😊! Even though the weekend is so close, we do still have a little left of this week, so I think we could all use a little pick-me-up! I have been fond of this quote since I first found it because I think it is incredibly true. I have always believed that no one comes into our lives by accident and all the events that we have experienced happened for a reason, even the ones we did not enjoy or regretted. The people that have come into our lives and everything we have been through have made us as strong as we are today!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and you found the quote meaningful. I do hope you are having a good week and staying calm and stress-free as much as you can. I am looking forward to reading your comments and promise to respond as quickly as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! There is NO better way to view Thursday, than Friday eve because it makes us know the week is almost over! How has your week been? All I will say about my week is, I am glad it is almost over. The good thing about the weeks now is, the weather is finally cooling down and we are not dealing with temperatures being in the high 90’s because that is miserable. What temperature do you think is perfect? I would love it if it could be in the 70’s year around or just NEVER too much above 80. I enjoy hoodie weather because it is cozy!

Our workweek is coming to an end and we only have one day left to get through, which should not be anywhere near as bad as the first few days of the week! Even though I am glad the week is almost over, I do like my job and have a chance to work with a great team, especially my supervisor😊! Even with that said, I do still encounter some people I would rather not because they have a negative outlook and attitude. I have learned through my years, sometimes the best thing to say to people is nothing at all because they do not deserve our time! This can be true at work and not at work as it is up to us who we allow into our lives and to who we give our time and attention.

I am sure you are looking forward to the weekend, right? Do you have any plans for the upcoming weekend? I know I sound boring, but I feel the best plan for a weekend is no plans at all. Honestly, our weeks are always planned out for us and most of the time not doing what we want to do, so I think weekends should not have any forceable plans. The weekend should be ONLY doing what we want to do and nothing we do not find enjoyable and happy😊! Of course, my weekends always include being available for the cats and catering to their every little furry need!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and you found the quote meaningful. Life is short and we need to live life to the fullest, which sometimes means eliminating those that bring us down and make us miserable. 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!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! The week began for me with a day off and then getting the piercing that I have been wanting😊! Then on Tuesday going back to work, which after being off few a couple of days was not that exciting. It honestly felt like a Monday on a massive amount of steroids, needless to say, it was miserable! Yesterday was a lot better and nowhere near as chaotic. Now we are nearing the end of the week and I only hope you are having a good week and the last couple of days of the week go very well!

We are near the end of our week and the weekend is upon us all, but we do have one more day to make it through. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with you today will serve as a little pick-me-up and help you through the final day of the week! I do know how limited compliments seem to be and how quick people are to criticize, but if we just try to accept them all with grace it will help us grow more.

The weekend is just around the corner now! Do you have anything planned for the weekend? I am probably going to work on cleaning the house because it definitely needs it! Other than the boring household chores, I plan to not wake up too early. I guess the cats will dictate what time I get up like they always do! I cannot say too much bad about the precious little furballs because they are the light of our life and we would be lost without them!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a great day and you enjoyed what I have shared with you today. 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 you LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

First Day Of Fall

Happy Friday eve! Today is the first day of my favorite season, Fall or Autumn whichever you prefer to call it! This is typically the season when the temperatures are the most reasonable, they are not too hot and not too cold, they are just perfect. Funny that I am saying that because it seems that Mother Nature did not get the memo or she is having a bad day because the temperatures where I live are going to be 94 degrees. Those are stupid summer temperatures, not cool fall temperatures. I am not sure who made Mother Nature made, but I think they need to apologize because this is not the way to begin my favorite season.

What does the autumn season look like to you? What should the As temperatures be? In my opinion, this time of a year should be far less than the mid 90’s because that is what summer is. The leaves should begin to fall and blanket the ground with their beauty. Today, we should be able to say “goodbye” to summer and the insane heat until June! Please do not get me wrong, I do enjoy summertime, but only while I am at the beach with the glorious ocean breeze. The good news is after today, the temperatures will slowly be decreasing to cooler and tolerable kind of weather.

I am not sure how we managed to make it through most of the week, but we did and now we only have one day until the weekend returns. As difficult as it might feel and seem, we did make it through the most difficult part of the week, so I believe the end will be filled with everything happy! I hope y’all find the quote I am sharing and that it provides you the pick-me-up needed to push through one more day! Something that I think is important in this crazy life is that we need to try our best to just slow down and take things one at a time. This is one of the only things that help me to stress a little less.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a wonderful day and you enjoyed what I shared with you today. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. No matter what happens today or what stressors appear, try to do your best to relax and take things in stride. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! How has your week been? It seems to have been a long and exhausting week, but as my late Grandfather always said, someone else is always going through something worst. Of course, one reason my week has felt long is because of pain, but the thing about pain is it lets you know that you are still alive. Maybe that is my way of coping with it because I am aware some of the pain I deal with is never going away.

It has been a couple of years, but I mentioned how it felt when we lost our dear sweet cat, Chloe. That kind of pain is emotional and it is awful. Unfortunately, a lady I work with lost her dog yesterday and I know the pain she is suffering, which breaks my heart for her and her family. Physical pain is awful, but I think emotional pain is far worse. I know it is not much, but all I can tell this lady I work with is that I understand and I am here for her anytime she needs to talk. I also know right now the pain is so raw, she does not want to talk but that I will be available when she is. I still remember the pain from losing Chloe and still break down in tears when I think about her.

We are towards the end of the week and have the weekend to look forward to. We do still have one more day to make it through, but considering we survived the first part of the week, I hope the last part will be much easier. I do believe we could all benefit from a little pick-me-up to lift our spirits! I hope the quote I am sharing today offers you support to help you to shine as bright as you can. No matter what we go through in this crazy life, there is always something positive that makes us smile😊. It is crucial to look on the bright side because things can always be worst.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week has gone well and you are looking forward to the weekend ahead of us. We all go through different struggles in life, but when we learn someone we know is struggling I think it is important to offer our kindness, compassion, and support! 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!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! How has your week been? Yes, I know the short weeks can feel painfully long and people cannot seem to understand most things are not the end of the world and that life will continue to move forward. I wish people would learn to be even a little more understanding and compassionate, but it seems like that is a wish that might never come to fruition. I guess a girl can dream though😉. I do have a few people that I work with that are absolutely amazing and they can make the worst of days much brighter just by being who they are, and for that I love them!

After only a couple of days in our short week, we do still have one more to push through and I think we could all use a little pick-me-up. I love the quote from Albert Einstein I am sharing because it brings so much clarity to the world. As children, many of us had wild imaginations that we utilized, but as adults, we get so bogged down with the busyness of our daily lives we have lost the connection with our imaginations. I think if we could all try using that brilliant imagination a little during the day, we might notice an amazing change in life and even be a little less stressed and a lot happier!

I hope your week is going well and you are looking forward to the upcoming weekend. Do you have any plans for the weekend? Of course, I have no plans at all which is just the way I like it. The work week, even the short weeks seem so long and they are all planned out, I just enjoy having a few days that are not planned. I know some people would think I live a boring life and that might be true, but it is not complicated and it is safe.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared today and the quote helps you to use your imagination more, and that helps you through the last day of the week. 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!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday eve, y’all! We have almost made it through another week, and we are beginning a new month. I cannot believe we are already in September because the last several months have gone by so quickly and I hardly remember them☹. Crazy, right? September is a beautiful month, but it is also an incredibly sad month for me. Nine years ago, on September 9, 2013, I lost someone close to me. My dear sweet and very loving Poppy passed away on that day and I have dreaded this day every year since he passed. I will be doing a post on September 9th in honor of him☹.

How has your week been so far? I hope you are having an amazing week and you are looking forward to the long weekend ahead of us😊! My week did not begin all great because of car issues, but yesterday I had a great day at work. Not only are things changing and I am going to be reporting to the supervisor I have been wanting as a supervisor since I started with the company😊, but I was also told by a sales representative that has been with the company for 28 years that I am doing a stellar job, and the way I care about the customers shines through in everything I am doing. These two things made my week much better and put a HUGE smile on my face😊!

Our week will be coming to an end soon and we need to find the strength and determination to survive one last day, I feel we need a pick-me-up. Life can get complicated, and sometimes this makes us want to give up and stop trying. All the challenges we endure in this life can only break us if we stop trying. It doesn’t matter how hard we must fight, what matters is that we keep moving forward and never surrender to the challenges.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as quickly as I can. I hope the last part of your week is amazing and you have a wonderful, and safe long weekend. I hope you found the quote I shared a good pick-me-up, and it provides you the strength to keep going until the week finally ends. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday Eve! I do would prefer to not say happy Thursday because it makes me feel like there is a lot left of this week and the week has already been too long! To think of today as Friday eve makes me feel like the week is almost over. How has your week been? I hope it has not been as long and crazy as mine has been. I do my best to avoid watching the news because there is literally nothing but negative and terrible things that happen every single day. Unfortunately, I did see some news because it showed up on my work computer. I wish I had not seen any of it because it is incredibly disturbing and discouraging! I just wish we could all get along and for one day, the only things reported on the news are positive.

For the past several weeks, I have seen some very unpleasant and disrespectful behavior. These are things that I will never understand because it is the exact opposite of how I act towards other people. I do not understand if this is something new happening in the world and I have always been too naïve to see it before, but if that is the case, I wish I could go back to being too naïve to view people for what they are. This is the reason that I decided on the quote I am sharing with you today. It does not matter how others treat me or how much they choose to disrespect me, I am going to continue being who I am and treat others with kindness. I view it as there must be a reason for the way they are behaving because why else would someone behave so unkind?

I am trying to do at least one post each day, which I was unable to on Tuesday. We all face challenges and stress in life, so it is crucial to find ways to release those negative emotions. My way to do this has always been to write and read, which is difficult to do when I have a headache. I do believe one reason I have been dealing with so many headaches is mostly due to stress, which is why I mentioned in a previous post I was slowly going to be eliminating stress from my life. Who would have thought it would be so difficult, especially when I know the stress factors?

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote resonated with you. I know we do still have one more day until we get to the weekend, but that is much better than having to wait 5 days as we did on Monday. I do not have any definitive plans for the weekend, but I do want to go get the piecing I have heard helps migraines. Many people have told me that once they got the daith piercing (part of the ear), they did not have another migraine, or at least not as many. 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!
