Let It Go Friday

Don’t bring negative emotions into your weekend!

Happy Friday y’all! I hope you had a lovely week and you kept yourself safe! Thankfully, we made it through another long and grueling week and have the weekend to enjoy! I think our weekends should be spent recuperating from the week. Funny I say this when I agreed to work overtime this weekend, but it will only be for one of the days and won’t be too bad.

As our week winds down, it is time to let go of any negative feelings the week may have caused and enjoy what is always a couple short days away free to do what we please! I hope you will find the quote I am sharing today uplifting and it helps you let go of any unsettling or negative emotions! Sometimes in order to be the happiest we can be, we need to let go of those holding us back from happiness!

I hope whatever your plans are for the weekend, you will stay safe and relax! I also would love to read what your thoughts are about the quote I shared because what you think and feel matters to me! The reason I ask y’all to always stay safe is because I care about your well-being and value you for the person you are so please stay safe!!

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a lovely weekend! Even though I am going to be working some this weekend, 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!

Always, Alyssa

Pick Me Up Thursday

Every long week requires a little inspiration!

Happy Friday Eve y’all! I hope your week has been good so far and just think there is only one more day before an amazing and relaxing weekend! Honestly, my week has been rather long and has included a lot of pain. I am not sure why the increase in pain, but I am doing the best I can dealing with it. I am thankful that I am able to work from home, which also means wearing comfortable clothes all day!

There is so much going on around the world and honestly, most of it isn’t all that positive. The news can be emotionally draining and while it is important to know what is going on, it is also best to try to distance ourselves from it as much as we possibly can. There is so much corruption within politics and hate spreads faster than wildfire, we need to be able to find a balance. This is one reason why I found the quote I am sharing so encouraging and I hope you will as well! My hope is that this quote will provide you with the pick me up you might need today!

No one ever said that life was easy because it can be very challenging. No matter what struggles we might face on a day to day basis, we need to know we are all strong enough to handle it. We do not have control over the way anyone else acts, but we can control how we act and the way we treat others. While it is important to treat everyone with respect and kindness, we need to never neglect ourselves either and understand the importance of treating ourselves with the same respect we give others. I am honestly learning trying to learn this because I have always put everyone else’s needs ahead of my own and end up neglecting what I need. We have all heard that old saying, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” right?

Thank you for visiting my site today! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on what I shared today and promise to respond as quickly as I can! I hope you have a great day and PLEASE continue to stay safe! This virus does not seem to be giving up and is still causing harm to so many. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday

Let’s Begin the Week with positive thinking!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope your weekend was full of happiness, joy, and safety! Are you ready to start a new week that can be full of endless possibilities? Unfortunately, ready or not it is here. One of the most important things that I say to y’all in almost every post is, to please stay safe.

Sadly, it seems that the virus isn’t slowing down at all in the United States, but instead it is worse now than it was when this pandemic started. Wearing masks, hand washing, and social distancing is a need not a want! I am not sure why the safety practices seem to be difficult for some people. Let me just say, this virus is not a joke, a hoax, or anything other than determined to attack anyone. It doesn’t matter your age, race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, or even your political standings, this virus can cause horrible things for anyone and everyone! Please, do what is necessary to keep yourself and your family safe!

On a more positive note, of course, I have a great quote to begin your week! I hope you will find this quote motivating, it helps start your week off positive, and your week only gets better with each day! Everything we do during our days has an effect on someone and we want that to be a positive effect! Our actions should be valued and we should respect others always!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and I look forward to reading your thoughts on it. I also hope you have a great and safe week. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Let It Go Friday!

Let’s Enjoy A Safe And Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I know you are all probably looking forward to the weekend, I know I am! Is it just me or are the weekends continuing to get shorter? Sometimes the weeks feel incredibly long and then the weekend is over in the blink of an eye. I guess maybe that speaks volumes and I am just getting old!

Now that the week is coming to an end, it is time to let go of anything negative that occurred during the week. There is no use allowing for negative emotions to derail the weekend we all look forward to. I think the only thing that really happened to me this past week that was negative was my frustrations with myself. I can admit that I tend to not only be my own worse critic, but I am also way too hard on myself. I know this is something I need to work on and I promise I am trying! I do hope the quote I want to share with y’all today will help you let go of anything that might be causing you unpleasant emotions and help you enjoy your life and weekend to the fullest!

I love Maya Angelou and I really hope you enjoyed her quote! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts and promise to respond as quickly as I possibly can! I have several more of Maya’s quotes to share with you in the next few weeks!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I hope whatever your plans are for the weekend, you will do everything you can to keep yourself and family safe. Unfortunately, we still have not seen the end of COVID-19, so this means we all need to work together by practicing ALL the safety practices the professionals are telling us! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Pick Me Up Thursday!

Friday Eve sounds much better than Thursday!

Hello y’all and happy Friday Eve! How has your week been? Maybe I am going crazy, but this week has gone by extremely fast! This was my third week with my new job and I am still enjoying it. I have learned a lot and there have been days I felt like I was on information overload, but I say that in the best way possible. Even though I am still loving my job, I am very glad it is almost the weekend!

I do not have to get up insanely early, but I do still have an annoying evil alarm clock. The funny thing is I am normally up before the alarm goes off. I think it is because in my mind I already know how much I hate that sound and I just wake up about 10 minutes before the alarm would go off. The sound of the alarm is so awful to me, I don’t even let the microwave go off. Crazy, right?

With only one day left before the weekend is here, I think we could all us a little pick me up. I hope you will enjoy the quote I am sharing with y’all today. I found it pretty uplifting and hope it will give you the pick me up you might need to get through another day of the week! I would really love to read what you thought about this quote. With so much negativity and tragedy that is happening around the world, I think it is crucial for all of us to find ways to hold onto positivity and happiness!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today. I hope y’all have had a pleasant week and you are continuing to stay safe. Hopefully your day is lovely and not stressful at all because none of us need stress in our lives. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a nice enjoyable and safe weekend! Are you ready to start the new week? The new week will bring us a chance to begin again and anything that happened last week is in the past.

How was the weather where you are? Where I live, it rained for a little while on Saturday and again on Sunday, both days were insanely HOT! There once was a time that I loved summer time because I love the beach, but I don’t know if it is because I am getting older or if temperatures are getting hotter or maybe it is the combination but I dread summertime now. In the south where I live, you are not able to walk outside for one second and not feel like you just took another shower. The daytime highs are normally in the high 90’s, so it really is miserable.

I think it is always important to begin our weeks with a positive mindset. I mean we all know there is enough negativity in the world, but we have a choice to not get involved with this! This is one reason why I love sharing a motivating quote with y’all every Monday. I hope the quote I am sharing today will serve as a motivator to you and that your week will get better with each day! I would love the chance to read what you thought about this quote!!

I hope your week starts off well and you are feeling the best you possibly can. I am so glad that I do not have to leave my house with as hot as it is going to be this week. My previous MS Specialist always used to tell me how awful the heat was for me and I never wanted to believe him, but he was very correct! The heat makes me feel terrible and causes twice as many dizzy spells, which isn’t any fun. I hope you are able to stay cool and not have to deal with temperatures that are too bad!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued support and love reading your comments! Please stay safe when you are not in the comfort and safety of your home. I also hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Pick Me Up Thursday!

Viewing Today as Friday Eve Makes it Better!

Happy Friday Eve y’all! How was your week? Tomorrow will make two full weeks at my new job and I still think things are going rather well. I honestly have not done great with blogs other than my typical Monday, Thursday, and Friday posts, but I am still going to try harder next week. It has been challenging because last week I learned one way of doing my job and this week we are learning another new way. There is one post I went back and forth and then would start it and then through it away many times. I have made the ultimate decision to follow through with my initial plan and write about a topic that is close to my heart and and very meaningful to me and once it is published, I hope you will also find it to be meaningful!

I am going to keep this pick me up post shorter than normal because I have been fighting a migraine most of the day. Even though I do not feel great right now, I still wanted to share a pick me up quote to hopefully great you through one last day of the week. I am going to look forward to reading what you thought about this quote!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a wonderful day and you stay very safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Monday, gives us a brand new start!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a lovely, safe, and relaxing weekend! I know I said I has several posts that I wanted to complete this weekend, but I was honestly so worn out I did not have the energy to provide you with the meaningful writing y’all deserve. I guess I didn’t realize how much working full-time took out of me, but hopefully this week will be easier and I can provide valuable content for y’all to read. I do have several ideas still!

At the beginning of each week, I think we all need a little motivation to get our week started on with an optimistic mindset. The quote I am sharing with y’all today means so much to me, probably because my stepfather has Parkinson’s. I know Michael J. Fox has battled this disease for many years. Truth is, I find how he handles his illness, family, and career extremely motivating and hope it this will provide you with that motivation needed to begin your week! You probably will not be surprised because y’all know I am a very emotional person, but this quote brought tears to my eyes.

I want y’all to know how much I appreciate you visiting my site today. I hope you found something great with the quote I shared and I look forward to your amazing comments. I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can. Again, I am sorry I did not share anything over the weekend as I had planned. Whatever you did over the weekend, I hope you remained safe. Unfortunately, COVID-19 numbers are not stabilizing, but increasing consistently. Where I live the numbers everyday are increasing in triple digits and there was the first pediatric case in the state I live in.

I know in each of my recent posts I keep encouraging you to stay safe and follow all safety measures with COVID, but I hope you know it is because I care and do not want you to contract this nasty virus. I also know I have made several ugly and snide remarks about the president, but that is because he is up for reelection and I do not agree with anything he says or does. I do not appreciate the way he has handled this deadly virus or the way he calls it the Chinese virus. I find his racists remarks and distasteful comments about human beings very wrong and just plain rude. I can not for the life of me understand how anyone with even one working brain cell can support this man, but I guess it is just because they agree with the racist aspects. In my eyes, we were all created equally and deserve to be treated with the same respect we expect from others.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have a wonderful and safe start to your week. My hope is to be more prepared with posting this week because I love having the opportunity to share beneficial content with y’all. I promise to not make political comments in all posts, but I can’t promise that I won’t encourage y’all to stay safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Belated First Day Experience

I know I am a little delayed in telling y’all about my first day at my new work from home job and I am so sorry about that! It was also my first day working after several months of not working, so I was pretty exhausted. To add on to my first day of work after not working for several months, I also did not sleep for close to 48 hours. I do not know why, but I was unable to sleep most of the weekend. There isn’t really a reason for it either. Thankfully, I actually finally did sleep on Monday evening for about 5 or 6 hours, so now I can tell y’all about the first day with my work from home job!

Monday morning started off well, but on barely any sleep it was twice as exhausting. I had two Zoom meetings, one of which thankfully I wasn’t on screen but the other one, unfortunately, I was on camera. I don’t know about y’all, but I hate seeing myself on screen. I don’t think it is a very nice image! This job is working with a mortgage company and it was amazing how much I ended up remembering from when I worked for a mortgage company a few years ago. I will say this company seems a lot more organized than the previous mortgage company I worked for.

I will be the first to say that I am not all that great with hooking up computer equipment, but thankfully my husband is great at it. The poor guy was up until about 7 in the morning making sure all my equipment was set up and working correctly. I guess it is a good thing he works nights and does well being up all hours of the night! Unfortunately, he doesn’t work for the company I do so he doesn’t have access to what the IT people do, but he did amazing with what he could. I did have to call the IT department because there was something wrong, but it was nothing my husband didn’t do, it was on the company’s side. The IT support person even admitted the issue was a known problem.

The second day of work was a few Zoom meetings and yes, I was on video again. I don’t know why I hate seeing myself on screen or in pictures. I am very critical of myself! But the second day went well. I had a few modules to read and then complete a test. Testing has never been something I was good at. I could know the answers to all the questions, but when the timer starts I forget everything. The third day will be doing modules and one Skype meeting, which I will not be on camera!!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today and I am so sorry I was so delayed with telling y’all about the first day at work! I hope your week has started well and you are staying safe! This virus isn’t over yet and if you live in the United States you already know our so-called leader isn’t doing anything to protect any of us. This person is caught up in his reelection campaign and his pole numbers.

Please, if you do live in the states don’t forget to vote in November. We the people need to join together and END the Trump presidency! I hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday!

Let’s make this week great!

Happy Monday y’all! I hope you had a wonderful and safe holiday weekend! I did spend most of the weekend getting ready for today when I start my new work from home job, but I will tell you all about my first day this evening. I am going to be working 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, but I am still making time for my blogging friends!

Today is the start to new week that is hopefully going to be the beginning of many great new and exciting things. I always think we need some extra motivation to make sure we begin the week off positively! I find the quote I am sharing with y’all incredibly true throughout the entire world. So much has not improved with equality and justice in the United States. I think the more we speak out against inequality and racial injustice, the more hope we can bring for those that need and deserve it!

I hope you have a great start to your week. Please whatever your day brings, stay safe and practice ALL protocols necessary. I really want y’all to never get this nasty and horrible virus! With this past weekend being a holiday weekend, it is sad how many people failed to practice social distancing. Therefore the COVID-19 numbers did increase, it honestly scares the hell out of me and keeps me from leaving the safety of my home.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I appreciate your continued support and love reading your amazing comments, which I would love to know how you feel about the quote I shared today. Please stay tune for the post I do regarding my first day of work, after not being employed for a few months. I am truly excited because I do hate not working and having a schedule! I hope y’all never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, supportive, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
