Motivational Monday!

Good morning y’all! I hope you had a lovely Mondayweekend and you are ready to tackle another week. Luckily, I did have the weekend off and I was able to rest and try to recuperate from not feeling well. If I am being totally honest, I still am not feeling my best, but I am going to ignore not feeling well and push through the day. I am not sure if I have been feeling under the weather because of the stress and pressures I allow my job put on me or if it is just the incredibly nasty HOThot-text-fire-flames[1] weather, whatever the cause I can’t allow it to keep me down too long.

I missed doing my Motivational Monday last week due to a nasty migraine, so I am thrilled to be able to share an amazing uplifting and motivating quote with y’all today. I do hope after you read this quote, it sticks with you and you never forget it because each and every one of you are worth SO MUCH ❤❤!!dont let it be you

Whenever you are feeling down, I really want y’all to reread this quote and know your worth ❤! I think it can be very easy to start feeling  your pain settle back into your body, making it incredibly difficult to do what you need to, but just try taking everything slow,stronger than I feel never rush yourself, take breaks when you need to and reach out for help from others. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I hope you are starting your week off in the best way you can and of course you are feeling well! I also hope you never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

Outlets are important!

environmental-writer-300x156Do you have an outlet from the pains that life hands us? I do believe having an outlet can be the most therapeutic thing for anyone, almost like a short escape from reality. It doesn’t matter if you write on a blog and share you deepest feelings with others or if you take time alone to write in a journal about your feelings, it is just important to get those emotions out. Releasing positive and or negative emotions can create so much true comfort!

Obviously y’all know I write on my blog as much as I can, but recently I have started download (5)writing in a journal as well. There might be times when I may not be ready or comfortable sharing how I am feeling with anyone yet and writing these feelings down in private offers me serenity. I find that writing down what is going through my mind at any given time allows me to reread what I am dealing with and gain some perspective. I think that by writing in a journal, I can just be honest with myself and not have to worry about what anyone else thinks or someone trying to tell me how I should feel or how I should cope with my struggles. There are many times that I just wanting to come up with solutions on my own, but then there of course times I do want advice.

I really do enjoy writing on my blog as well because this gives me a chance to not only outletshare with y’all, but also gain some amazing feedback from y’all!! I have told y’all many times before that I am very critical of my own writing, but reading your thoughts helps me in so many ways. I have always dreamed of being a writer and having freedom to write about whatever I want! My ultimate dream is to gain the confidence to write the book I have mulled over for many years. I do believe that if I continue writing on my blog, which I do intend to, I will gain a tremendous amount of knowledge from each of you and about my own skills.  I am very curious about what you consider an outlet. Is writing on your blog, writing in asunrise_music300[1] journal, or do you even consider writing to be an outlet at all?

I also consider music to be an outlet. It amazes me how much passion and meaning can be in just one simple song. I am sure what I take from any given song can be much different that it would anyone else and it might be a lot different than what the writer intended. I appreciate the creativity song writers hold and value what they are sharing with the world.

I am looking forward to reading what you consider an outlet to be and how it has helped you! I am so pleased to say that I do not have to work this weekend, which is allowing me to download (5)do things I really needed to do, like clean the house and rest. I know how crazy that just sounded, cleaning the house and resting seem like they are opposites, but for me being able to get the house nice and clean is a great feeling. Of course all the extra work did create a lot of pain for me, but now I am able to spend the remainder of the weekend resting and preparing myself for another LONG week at work and unfortunately I have to work next weekend!

Thank you for stopping by my site today! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and feeling well! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

just breathHappy Friday y’all!! I hope you had a lovely week and you are looking forward to a weekend doing only brings you joy! I do believe after the long weeks many of us have, we deserve to take a break from the insanity the week had brought us. Let us use TODAY as a day to just let go of anything unpleasant that we encountered during the week.

Even though the quote I am sharing with y’all today is simple, it also holds so much real truth and meaning to it! If after a long and very exhausting week, we allowed everything that was negative to consume us, that negativity will end up controlling our lives and we just can’t allow that to happen!bf37d6f87e0e71d2c672b77d6aff6f36

Our lives are short and allowing anything, no matter how minor it might be to control us, just takes the pure joy from our life. We never know what tomorrow holds and anything canimages (1) happen. Not only do I enjoy letting go of the negative, but with our life being short there is no time for negative and unnecessary emotions. I actually refuse to ever go to bed angry and I will never leave the house without telling my husband I love him. As grim as this will sound, there is always a chance  do not make it home safely. 

Thank you for stopping by my site today. Not only do I hope this quote resonates with you, but I also hope you have a fabulous and calm Friday! The good news is, we made it through another week and we can now enjoy the much needed weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of  love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Pick-Me-Up Thursday!

download (6)Good morning y’all and wishing you a very happy Friday Eve!  How was your week? I do hope you had an amazing week and you are feeling well. I am so beyond thankful that I do not have to work this weekend! It has been a very long and extremely busy week for me! I think like most of us, we need a peaceful weekend to recuperate before the new week starts up again!

I am so sorry that I missed my normal “Motivation Monday” post. I had an awfulmigrainehellproductl migraine that was just plain miserable. It started before I left work on Sunday afternoon and progressed rapidly making doing anything at all 100% impossible! I honestly have absolutely NO idea how I made it home, but luckily I did! 

I have what I think is a very uplifting quote that should help us all make it to the much desired weekend! I do not know about you, but I can say I am guilty of setting limits to myself and my own talents. I know I have shared this with y’all before, but I really want to someday write my own book. I already completed an outline and will start on it, but then tell myself it isn’t good enough and no one would ever read it. I am irrationally hard on myself and tend to be my own worst critic. None of us should EVER do this because I do believe all of us are capable of making our dreams become our reality.No Limits

So, let me ask you, do you set limits on your own thoughts and dreams? If you are like me, I often feel that I am not good enough. I really hope these thoughts never end yourimages (1) mind because you my friends are worth SO much more than I think you know!

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. I always appreciate the support you offer me and really love ❤ reading your comments. I hope you have a wonderful, non-stressful and very comfortable day. One of the greatest accomplishments we have made this week is, we made it through! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love,❤ comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

just breathGood morning and happy Friday y’all! How has your week been? I do hope you have a had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to a lovely weekend! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend or will you spend your time recuperating from the week? Unfortunately, I am working this weekend and hoping I won’t busy because it is going to be another HOT weekend!

Today is our day to practice letting go of any negativity we may have experienced Happy Friday 3throughout the week. There is already so much hate and negativity in the world today and we really do not need to ever burden our minds with that mess. Y’all already know how much I am struggling with where I am working currently, but getting myself stressed about it hasn’t changed a thing. I have made the decision to view this job as just a paycheck until I find something that will work well with my personality and not require me to be out in the heat, at all! I am trying to let go of the stress this place has been causing me and use that energy to job search! The quote I am sharing with y’all today is something I will try reading daily!da8d4144332e5d8e53e91b2697c47612

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I always appreciate you taking the time to read and always LOVE ❤ your comments. Hopefully this quote will provide you with the push to get through this last day of the week and give you some peace! I do hope you have a fantastic day and you are feeling the best you possibly can! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and may positive vibes!

Chronically Hopeful Award!

ChronicallyHopefulAwardI was completely blown away that the lovely Heather and Dizzy at https://dinosaursdonkeysandms.com thought to nominate me for such a beautiful award. I find both ❤ Heather and Dizzy to be so encouraging and battle MS with nothing but grace! Considering I have been adjusting to working full-time again, blogging has been a little difficult for me. I had actually told myself that I would not be able to do award posts until I had fully adjusted, but this one is very special and holds a place in my ❤heart because I think all of us living with a chronic illness need to hold on tight to hope! I mean, without hope, what do we really have? Thank you from the bottom of my ❤ heart Heather and Dizzy ❤ for this incredible nomination! I do encourage anyone that has not already visited Heather and Dizzy’s site to check it out https://dinosaursdonkeysandms.com, I know you will love it as much as I do! And thank you Pamela ❤ for creating this amazing award for those that are able to have hope for the future!

The wonderful Chronically Hopeful Award has been created by Pamela, “to recognize the incredible people who blog about chronic illness, mental health and disability.”

THE RULES:

  1. Thank your nominator
  2. Recognize Pamela from There Is Always Hope as the creator of this award and link her URL – https://pamelajessen.com
  3. Use the Chronically Hopeful Award logo somewhere in your post

  8. Comment on each of your nominees’ latest posts to tell them they have been nominated

Heather & Dizzy’s Questions and my answers:

 1, What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned from your illness?

 I think the biggest lesson I have learned since diagnosed with MS at age 19 is, life can be painfully difficult, but giving up should never be an option. We are meant to live the life we are living and must always fight with everything we have.

2. If you were a dinosaur, what dinosaur would you be and why? download (4)

This was actually a very difficult question to answer, but I think I would have to say a Pterodactyl because they can fly! I think it would be amazing to have the ability to fly away when you need time alone!

3. What is your most embarrassing moment? 

I know I have had many embarrassing moments, but I have done my best to forget them. One embarrassing moment I haven’t been able to forget is tripping while walking on rocks at the beach. It was a simple accident, but so many people watched it happen.

4. What is your favourite flower?download (3)

My absolute favorite flower is the Stargazer lily. I got married in early October when these flowers were not really in season, but I just had to have them. Thankfully, the florist was able to get them for me! It was probably the only thing that I just had to have for my wedding!

5. What makes you happy? 

There are several things that make me happy. First, my two adorable and very loving ❤ cats bring me so much joy. They can be little terrors at times, but they misbehave in the cutest ways possible! Being able to write also brings me so much joy.

 

❤❤My amazing nominees are: Now, my nominees are in no specific order and I also do not want to add any additional stress or pressure to your life, so please do not feel obligated to participate, I will understand if you choose not to.

Let it go Friday!

242860-Good-Morning-Happy-Friday-Flowers-And-ButterfliesGood morning y’all! It has been a very long week, but thankfully Friday is finally here! I have been waiting so patiently for today and to finally have a real weekend, not the partial weekend like I had last week. Only having one weekend day off and still having to work 40 hours during the week was just not enough. It is not easy working with people because everyone has different good personality traits and also personality flaws. It is rWBHmMxthe flaws that I have struggled with because I do my best to treat everyone with kindness and respect, but not everyone does the same. I am trying to make Friday be the day to let go of all the unpleasant behaviors I have dealt with and all the pain I have experienced throughout the week! 

It has been a few weeks ago, but I had said that I was going to add positive quotes to assist with Let It Go Friday. I found a wonderful quote that I think can help let go of any negative emotions the week may have produced and of course I hope you find it helpful!motivational-quotes-let-it-go-with-inspiring-about-letting-huffpost-1

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued kindness-1197351_1280kindness and efforts to spread good vibes! I hope you have a peaceful day and you are feeling well! I am trying so hard to let go of anything and everything negative that happened over this past week and only look for the positives that can occur this weekend! I do look forward to reading your thoughts on this quote and how you handle letting go of negative feelings. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, compassion and many positive vibes!
