Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday Eve 😊! How has your week been? It has been far too HOT and I do not think the temperatures are going to get cooler anytime soon. I swear, summer can often feel like we are living in hell, but hotter! It is terrible when you walk aside and feel like you are in a sauna or an oven that is turned up as high as it can go. Of course, there are good things about summer, but it is almost impossible to live near the ocean so you can feel the glorious ocean breeze and hear the waves crashing down!

We have somehow survived most of this week, but we do have a couple left before the weekend returns. This is the home stretch, as we wait “patiently” for the weekend 😊! I think we can all use a little pick-me-up that offers encouragement and strength. I hope you will feel the meaning of the quote I have shared and it encourages you to push forward for the remainder of this week. I think what we are “supposed:” to do, taking care of our responsibilities, home life, and work are embedded into our minds and we get lost. Many people are so focused on caring for everyone and everything else, they feel their emotions are unimportant and invalid. This way of thinking is not true and it is a hard pattern to end, but we can do it!

Now that the weekend is almost here, do you have any plans? One thing I want to do is purchase a few things for the outside of our house. I would like to plant some flowers in large pots to go on our front porch. I think flowers brighten life up and look really pretty. It might have to wait until next spring, but I really want to plant butterfly bushes because I LOVE butterflies and it would be amazing to see butterflies around the house! Does anyone have any advice on planting flowers and the best way to plant bushes?

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and I was able to shine a little light on your day! I would love to know you thoughts about the quote I shared and any other comments you have. I promise to 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 think looking at today as Thursday, makes it feel like the week is not almost over. This is why I prefer saying it is Friday Eve! My week has been exhausting and it is not over yet. Thankfully, I was able to talk with one of my co-workers yesterday that was in training with me and she said she was feeling just as discouraged as I have been feeling. I hate that someone else feels this way, but it does make me feel better to know I am not the only one. I was starting to think it was just me and maybe I was not understanding something.

We do still have at least one more day left of this week and we could all probably use a pick-me-up to make us feel happier. We try so hard in life and sometimes we might feel like it is not enough, but as long as we are trying it is plenty. We will never be perfect because perfect does not exist, but we can still be happy! I believe perfection is just an illusion and can never be reached. All striving for perfection is going to do is drain our energy and self-esteem. The only thing we are able to do is be our perfectly imperfect self😊!

Of course, my week has been long and a little frustrating but I am thankful to have a job working from home. Although I do deal with aggravating and demanding people a lot, I do get to talk with some really great people. Yesterday, I was lucky enough to talk with two great people. The last lady told me I have made her experience much better and it made her want to do further business with my company! The funny part is, I was just honest and myself with her. I am always upfront with customers because I believe that is the way business “should” be!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote helps you through the last part of this week. I know it is not easy, but try to not allow anyone to bring you down. Most people that have a negative attitude are angry with their own life and want to bring others down. You know what they say, misery loves company, but that is not the company you want part of. 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! How has your week been? It was not until yesterday, that overtime was offered at work again. I remember how insane it was last week when I said I would work overtime and swore I would not do it again, but I, of course, agreed to work the long 10 hours days again and four hours on Saturday. I am a glutton for punishment, but I am sure it will pay off, or at least that is what I will keep telling myself. The way I view things is, that I work from home and do not do anything else, so why not work for a little extra money?

Thankfully, we have almost survived the week and the weekend is almost here. I am glad the weekend is almost back, even though I am working a few hours on Saturday. After how long the week has already felt, I think we could all use a little pick-me-up and I hope the quote I am sharing provides that to you. Although I think this quote is uplifting and encouraging because it is incredibly true, I would love to know what you think.

Do you have any plans for the weekend? Besides working on Saturday, I do not think anything else is going on. I am 90% sure, my husband works all weekend, but things change with his job randomly. I hope work on Saturday is not too terribly, but things happen and it will all be okay. Life happens and things can be unpleasant, but I believe the outcome is all in the way we handle it. We all have a choice in how we approach different situations.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope your week has been wonderful and the final day is even better. I am looking forward to reading your comments and I will respond as soon as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

The Traffic Light Of Life

Happy Friday eve. How has your week been? Honestly, mine has felt nearly unbearable and extremely exhausting. I am not sure if this has been due to work or personal life issues or an awful combination of the two. In all my years working, I have never felt so helpless and inadequate. It is not like the job is saving lives, discovering cures for diseases, or curing world hunger, so I cannot understand why everyone tries to make it seem that way. No job no matter what you do should make you feel like crawling under the desk and crying daily☹.

Have you ever asked yourself what life is or what it can be compared to? Life is like a traffic light. Life consists of stop, go, and yield, like the red, green, and yellow light. We all want a green light to keep going and get frustrated with a yellow or red light. The truth is, no matter what happens in life, things will always be changing and moving forward, even if it is slowly.

The way the past few weeks have been, I have felt like I have been at a constant red light. I know things happen for a reason and everything in life has a way of working out, but I need the light to turn green to make way for better days. There are always growing pains when starting a new job, but it has been a little over one month and it is time for the growing pains to end. I have always treated people fairly and never talked down to people when they had questions, so it does not make sense when people do.

On Friday eve, especially if you have had a week as I have had, we need something to pick our spirits up. Staying positive and spreading that positivity to others is critical. I got a message today from someone I worked with at my previous job saying she missed me and how positive I was. She said that I could always bring a smile to her face, even on a bad day. We all need people like that in our lives, whether it be a co-worker, friend, significant other, or anyone that is in our lives. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today with help lift your spirits.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you are doing well and standing up for yourself whenever you need to. Thankfully, we only have one more day of this long week and the weekend will return. You do not have to have anything epic planned, but just something that makes you smile😊! 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!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Happy Friday eve y’all! How has your week been? My new job is still going well and it is getting much easier. I was worried during training because there was so much information, but doing the work has it making more sense. I guess I was so used to my old job, so much so that it became like second nature, I was worried I was not going to be able to do the new job as well. I think I discouraged myself before trying to believe in myself, which I tend to do too much.

We have almost made it through another week, but still, have one final day to survive and I think we can with no problems. I do believe that after so many long days, we could all benefit from a little pick-me-up. I hope the quote I am sharing will provide you with that and help you to believe in yourself, and never let anyone tell you that you cannot do something. There is nothing we cannot do if we try and never give up. The only person I have ever let tell me I cannot do something is myself, but I am trying to silence that voice.

My goal was to continue doing at least one post a day, but yesterday I was too exhausted and did not have the energy to share something meaningful. The work I am doing might not be too difficult, but getting used to the system, daily workflow, the pain I always feel, and the weather made me not feel well enough. Now that the weekend is not too far away, I am hoping to finish a few posts I started, but are not completed yet. Starting something and not finishing makes me feel like there is a lot left unfinished, but I will try to do better.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I shared and the quote resonates with you. In the past, people used to think that because I had Multiple Sclerosis there were things I was not able to do and I truly loved providing them wrong. I do look forward to your comments, which I will respond to 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! Some people think of today as Thursday, but that just makes the week seem longer to me. I think Friday eve makes the week feel a little shorter. This has been my second week back working full-time. Working full-time and learning something new has been exhausting. I know in time what I am doing will feel like second nature and easy, but right now there is SO much to learn. The weather today will not help me feel more alive because it is going to be raining. I know we need rain for life to grow in nature, but it makes every part of me hurt twice as bad.

We have almost made it through the week and the weekend will be here soon, but we do have one final day to survive and I think we could use a pick-me-up! I hope the quote I am sharing with you will offer you the pick-me-up needed and a little inspiration! With everything we deal with in life, it is not always easy to be strong. However, the stress and challenges we face are not going to last forever and there will come a day when life is easier! Keep your head held high and keep fighting because better days are ahead for all of us😊!

I am doing my best to fight through the fatigue I feel and do at least one post each day. I think it makes it easier because I enjoy writing, so it gives me the inspiration to push forward. Once I clock out of work, I do need to take a break from the computer and the cats need attention. It makes me smile😊 when they are so happy to see me and act like they have not seen a human in decades. They might be a little dramatic😊!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope the quote I shared lifted your spirits and helps you survive the last day of this week. 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!

Pick Me Up Thursday

Good morning, Friday eve y’all! How has your week been? I meant to do a post yesterday but was battling with a nasty migraine/headache and was not able to. I am not sure if it came from looking at a computer all day long, allergies, stress, or somewhere else. Unfortunately, this started mid-day and I still had several hours left at work, but I somehow pushed through it. Even after my workday was over, I still was not able to rest to get rid of the evil migraine because I had to run to the pharmacy. Sometimes it seems like my day is never over!

The past two days I have been in training for my new job. There is such a difference between the mortgage job I did have and the one I am doing now. Considering this was only day 2 of training, I think I am picking up on this well and will continue to understand what this job entails. I did get frustrated a few times because nothing was making sense to me, but the trainer is patient and helpful with her explanations.

I guess I found the mortgage industry easy because I did it for six years and had a great handle on things. I know learning something new takes time and I need to be patient with myself. Of course, like always I am hard on myself and discourage myself. I will work on this, I promise. I honestly do not think this job is too difficult, it is just an entirely new world from what I am used to. I will continue to put my best foot forward and keep y’all updated!

We have almost made it to the weekend, and we only have one more day to get through, which may seem impossible. I feel like we could all use a little pick-me-up to help push us forward. I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today provides you with the strength and courage to get through. Life gets challenging and overwhelming, which is why we need to focus on taking one step at a time. Do you try taking on too much at the same time as I do?

Unfortunately, Ukraine is still experiencing tragic times. During these times, we need to continue sending them as many prayers and good thoughts as we possibly can. There are no valid reasons for anyone to go through what they are and it is past time for the invasion of this country to end. It is a blessing they have a fearless and strong leader who is standing with his people and not running.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared and the quote helps you get through until we are finally enjoying the weekend. I look forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as I can. I will try to do better with blogging and not miss a day again. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Happy Friday eve, y’all! I hope your week has been filled with more happiness than struggles, but that any struggles you did face turned into opportunities. The weeks often feel so long, but viewing each day as a blessing can make them seem even better. The truth is, no one is promised tomorrow, so each tomorrow is truly a gift. I experience pain 24/7 and now realize the pain I feel lets me know I am still alive. Sure, I would love to know I was alive without the pain, but that is not what my life is and I guess that is okay.

Thankfully we are almost to the weekend, but we do have one more day to get through. One more day before the weekend is far better than five more, right? Even though we are closer than we were to the weekend, I think we all deserve a little pick me up, don’t you? I hope you will find the quote I am sharing inspiring and it offers you strength and happiness! Granted, we experience struggles and hard times, but let us have our pain push us through until better days because they will come!

I have not worked since December 9, 2021, when I was laid off. I have spent the last three months searching for a new job. I have spent hours looking for the work from home job that was right for me and I am so happy that I will be starting one on Monday. Of course, I do not know if this job will be the perfect fit for me, but I do know I will try and that means it will be a success. I do not enjoy not working and honestly, there is a part of me that misses working in an office setting, but working from home has good opportunities as well. We never know the outcome of something new until we try!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoy what I have shared with y’all and I cannot wait for the opportunity to read your comments. I will promise you that I will respond to all of your 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!

Pick Me Up Thursday

Happy Friday Eve y’all! I hope you have had a nice week and you are looking forward to the weekend! The weeks are long, but life is short. There will be times when it may feel painfully long, but it is our life to live the best way we can. Pain is real and hard to endure. Loss and hurt are heartbreaking. At times life feels unfair, but maybe those times are a test of how strong we truly are. I cannot think of another reason why we are faced with so many challenges so this is the way that helps me to keep moving forward.

Although today is Friday, the last day we have to get through can feel daunting. Considering I understand how difficult life can get, I would love to be able to help pick your spirits up. No matter how the week has treated you or any frustrations you may be feeling, you are strong and amazing enough to get through anything! I hope the quote I am providing you today will help lift your spirits and push you through the last day of this week. No single person or event should be given the power to infringe on our peace!

As y’all already know, I have been trying to get myself back to normal. There are several reasons this has been difficult, but I will not stop trying. I have two posts that I am working on and plan to have both of them published by the end of the weekend. Once they are up, I hope the research I did was not in vain and they will be useful for you.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have had a great week so far and your day is full of happiness. I am excited to read your comments on this post and 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!

Pick-Me-Up-Thursday

Hello, Friday eve! How has your week been? I am sure you are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am! Do you have anything planned for the weekend? I do not think there is anything planned for this weekend, but next week is our 10th wedding anniversary and my birthday, so my husband and I are taking a few days off to enjoy being home with each other and not working. Of course, it will not be like previous anniversaries, but it will be safe from COVID. The way we are looking at things, there is always next year to go to the beach or anywhere else to have a little fun.

After a long and busy week, we could all use a pick-me-up, or at least I know I can. I hope you will enjoy the quote I am sharing with y’all today and that it gives you the pick-me-up needed to get you through one final day of this week. This is something that I have had to learn how to accept because I hate making mistakes. I have learned that whether mistakes happen at work or in my home life, it is the experiences we gain from mistakes that help us grow and become stronger. It has taken me a long time to understand this because I will beat myself up for making simple mistakes at work and they never damage or harm anything or anyone. I feel that the way we respond and react to mistakes makes the biggest difference and counts more than the mistake that was made.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have enjoyed what I have shared with you and it makes the last day of the week easier. I am so glad this week is almost over and I will have a weekend to rest up before the mini vacation next week, well time off from work and not going anywhere. I am hoping to get the house cleaned up and maybe even write a little more. I do have the essay for the writing contest to finish, submit, and then hope for the best. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
