Motivational Monday!

smile its mondayHello y’all! I hope you had a lovely weekend and you are ready for another week. This is so incredibly NOT like me, but I actually slept on and off pretty much all day Saturday and then did hardly anything Sunday. I guess all those days not getting near enough sleep finally caught up with me. How was your weekend? I hope if there was anything you wanted to do you were able to!

The quote I am sharing with y’all today is actually one my husband told me about. As soon as he told me about this quote, I knew I had to share it with y’all because I think it is very uplifting and motivating! I have always thought that our attitudes towards any situations can make it extremely difficult or make it fairly easy to handle. October+2018+(2)

I guess I have always tried handling life with a positive mindset because if we have  negative thoughts, nothing will ever go well. I know at work if just one person comes in while in a bad mood, those feelings are contagious causing everyone else to have a bad positive mondayday. Although that might just be me because I tend to be a little too compassionate to others feelings and when someone I know well is having a hard time it actually hurts me.

I do look forward to reading your thoughts about this quote because I know y’all have strong emotions and feelings. I hope you have a great start to your week and your week only gets better. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

P.S I am working on a post about Alzheimer Awareness Month, which hopefully I will be done with by the end of the week!

Let It Go Friday!

imagesGood morning and HAPPY Friday y’all! I hope your week has treated you well and you are ready to enjoy the weekend! Dealing with the time change, numerous different personalities/attitudes and a terrible amount of fatigue the weekend is just what I NEED! Sometimes it is not what is planned for a weekend, it is what isn’t planned that makes it just perfect!

Today is the perfect day to just let go of any unnecessary stress, hostility and or frustrations because we all know it doesn’t change anything at all! This week to let go of things daily I have been writing poetry again! I find writing is the best and less expensive forms of therapy! It is so incredibly freeing and there is NO worries about anyone disagreeing with you because it is between you and the paper you write on. Over the past month or so I have three different notebooks I write in, one is a journal, one is for my poems and the other is for things I want to write on my blog about. I don’t let anymore read my journal (obviously) and I do not share the poems with anyone yet! I am going to share with you the notebooks that I have been writing in. I used 3 different colors purple, teal and pink,just to keep things happy and colorful!

My Let It Go Friday quote is powerful and thought provoking, so I hope you enjoy it!2018-Motivation-Quotes-The-Mason-Group-1110x550

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. I hope you enjoyed the quote and I hope if you choose to get one of the notebooks I shared, you love❤them as much as I do! My wishes for you are that you have a great day and your weekend is everything that makes you happy! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

*Rest & Alone Time Good for the soul!*

let-discuss.jpgLet’s have an open and honest discussion about something that is very important to all of us! What do you do when there are several things you either want to do or need to do, but your body is screaming for you to stop and rest?  Do you try your best to ignore pleads from your overworked and weary body and keep going on? Or do you take a step back and listen to what your body is begging you for? Honestly, even though I know it would be best to rest, I tend to push myself not to stop or even slow down at all.life changes

Considering I do want to start making positive changes in my life, I wanted to find out how beneficial restful alone time can be for a person. This is going so sound a little crazy, but I almost felt like this information was granting me permission to have my pleasant alone time and not feel guilty or selfish for doing so.

Unfortunately, finding peace in the world today isn’t an easy task to take on and can exhaustingPositive Life Affirmation and Old Thought Patterns

to try. We see so much hatred and negativity every single day and that is SO WRONG! Even with that said, I do still believe, although it may only be short lived, there are minor things we can do for peace and comfort. I am going to list a few benefits to having your own personal and quit alone time!

  • Alone time gives you the opportunity to unwind and reboot your brain. If your brain is constantly turned “ON”, you are not giving your brain a chance to replenish itself. Time alone with no distractionsimages (7) allows for you to clear your mind, focus, and think a lot more clearly than before. This gives you the chance to revitalize both you mind and body!
  • Alone time can help improve concentration skills and even increase your productivity. If we can remove distractions and interruption from our lives the best we can, our concentration abilities will improve, which will help you get more work done, images (8)is less the time. Spending time by yourself gives you time to discover who you are and to hear your voice. When you are in a group with other people, you tend to just go along with whatever others said, even if it isn’t the action you think would be best.
  • You will have an opportunity to think far deeper if you are left alone with your thoughts, rather than in a group. On a normal day we are thinking or stressing about what our to-do list entails. Try to take short periods of time to sit alone and allow your thoughts to come alive!deep-quotes-every-saint-has-a-past-every-sinner-has-a-future-oscar-wilde-wisdom-quotes
  • It is often difficult to work through our troubles when we are surrounded with interruptions from either other humans or electronics. We do have a better chance to solve our problems if we take time and process things alone.
  • Spending time alone can improve your relationships. If you have spent time by yourself, you will have a better understanding of who you are and who you want to surround yourself with. Once you spent time alone, you will be able to appreciate Zenspirations®_by_Joanne_Fink_Blog_12_4_17_Let_Ypur_Creativity_Shineyour relationships with more love and honesty.
  • Alone time creates a space for creativity to grow and expand! Spending time alone allows your mind to wander candidly activating the brain’s default mode network that is responsible for most original thoughts and ideas.
  • Spending time alone increases self-sufficiency. This gives you the chance to self-reflect and even become comfortable with who you are. You will also be motivated to form your own opinions, free from judgment and criticism from others.

I hope you have found this information as interesting and helpful as I did. I believe allb0c97863a133d3e681c89beadb0f7a6b--art-tutorial-inspirational-posters of us should be learning more and evolving. I really appreciate you taking time to read this. I am not pushing you make a comment, but I would really like to encourage you to do so. I look forward to reading your thoughts because all of you are pretty great. I hope your weekend has been full of happy time and pain free! Please always remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ , comfort, and many positive vibes!

P.S I hope everything came out okay with this post, WP was giving me troubles this evening

Been a while

Featured

Catching-Up-and-My-Favorite-ThingsWOW, it feels like it has been forever since I did anything in the blogging community! While I was on my much needed vacation with my husband last week, I took a short break from doing anything involving a computer. The two of us went to my happy place, the BEACH, not only to celebrate my birthday, but also our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤. We had an amazing time together and had absolutely beautiful weather! It was so great being far away from the stresses of work and be able to just sit back listening to the ocean waves! I honestly find the sight and sounds of the ocean 🌊, while reading a great book to be the best way to relax and refresh!

I am very far behind on reading all of your posts, which I already know are fantastic. its-been-a-whileUnfortunately, I do have to work the weekend so I can’t say I will be able to catch up, but I will still try.

Considering I have been away for almost 2 weeks now, how have y’all been doing? I hope you are feeling well and your month has started off great! October is beautiful and my favorite month, which I am not just saying that because it is the month I was married in. I have always enjoyed the change in weather during October. Normally it isn’t too hot and not that cold, it is just right! Sounds kind of like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but yet so true! Of course the southern states are not always on the same page with my thought process and it was in the high 90’s ☀ for the first week of October, but thankfully over the weekend the temperatures are going to drop! It is crazy though because when I say the temperatures are going to drop, I mean drop more than 20 degrees in one day!

Like I already stated, my husband and I had a wonderful vacation. Of course it wasn’t long c620x376enough and it was painful to return to work. The insane thing is we didn’t get home until the early morning hours and I had to work that day. I was so exhausted; nothing bothered me at all because my mind was still at the beach and maybe I was half asleep still. Of course things not bothering me only lasted half a day and I will tell you more about this later. My boss is still the same idiot he has always been!

For my birthday we had a lovely dinner at a restaurant that was oceanfront 🌊! vacation and celebrationConsidering we were at the beach during the off season it wasn’t overly crowded, which was great! Thankfully my husband did not tell the waitress it was my birthday, so I didn’t have to deal with the wait staff singing happy birthday to me and embarrassing me. I do not like to be center of attention and would prefer to go unnoticed! 

The day after my birthday we went to another oceanfront restaurant to celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤! Back to back celebrations were nice and peaceful! It is so hard to believe we have already been married for 8 years ❤, I mean where does the time go? I still remember the day my husband proposed like it was yesterday and that was 9 years ago!

Sunrise at the beachI don’t know about you, but before last week there were times I was awake at sunrise, but never actually watched the sunrise. Standing out on the beach in the early morning hours watching the sun come up was a beautiful sight and pretty powerful! It really is amazing to watch as the sun slowly makes its way up to shine light on us all around the world! To think the sun I watched come up will also be seen on the other side of the world at some point. 

The weather was so clear we were even able to watch the sunset! The sun sets slowly over sunset at the beachthe horizons and it is quite magical, especially near the ocean! Of course I do think everything is magical and hypnotizing when I am at the beach!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend and you are able to enjoy every moment of it. I will be back to my normal routine next week and maybe even some extra surprises. I want to thank you for stopping by my site today and please know that I always appreciate your comments. Please never forget that no matter how busy I am, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

just breathGood morning y’all and happy Friday! I have been looking forward to this day all week because I only have to work 3 hours today and then have the entire weekend off! I really need this time away from all the pressures and stresses work is causing me and to focus on things that bring me joy.

I think way more often than not, I hold onto the stress that others are causing me and the pressure that comes along with it. One of my co-workers has hated her job original-3584403-1since she started because it feels like a hostile work environment. She is the assistant manager and the property manager does not communicate with her at all, but instead avoids even talking to her. He seems to expect her to know everything without the proper training. I think we already established the fact that my manager is an absolute moron and treats people so wrong. I am happy for my ❤ sweet friend because she found another job where I hope she will be happier and way more appreciated. I am definitely going to miss her❤, but we are going to stay in touch❤!

My other co-worker opened up to tumblr_lpmzts804m1qimgijus today about things he has gone through in life. The stories he told us broke my heart 💜 and yet I really understood most of what he has gone through in life. It is kind of funny, we never really know what someone else has dealt with in life because we weren’t there, but when they confide in us, we can give them the support they truly deserve and need💜

Today being Friday is a great day to start letting go of all the stresses from the week and just breath a sign of relief. We made it through another rather long week and now we can kick back and relax. The quote I am sharing with you today is very powerful and will have different meaning to all that read it.let go7

Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤ for stopping by my site today. I look forwardimages (6) to reading your amazing thoughts on this quote and everything else I shared today. I hope y’all have a lovely day and you are looking forward to the weekend. Please 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!

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!
