**Motivational Monday**

~Start This Week With A Smile & Hold Onto That Smile~

Happy Monday y’all! Let me start by saying I am sorry that I missed my “Let It Go Friday” post and the other posts I have been working on. Honestly, I worked close to 50 hours last week, so I was exhausted, and then battled with a massive headache on Sunday. Thankfully, I am feeling a little better now and hope to be able to finally finish two other posts I have been working on this week.

I think it is important to begin our new week with a positive mindset and with as much motivation as we can! I try my best to find the best quotes I can to help motivate y’all and begin your week in the best way possible. Monday morning is never the most desired day of the week, but it can be viewed as a way to make up for what did not go the way we planned last week. Everything YOU do, all YOU want, and every dream YOU have is important, so please never forget that! Basically, I want YOU to know how much YOU all matter to me!!

Unfortunately, COVID-19 is continuing to get worse every day. New cases and deaths are increasing at numbers we were used to seeing back in the beginning of the pandemic. There were a few months when the numbers started trying to try stabilizing, but now it almost seems as though we are starting over again. We are all tired of social distancing, wearing masks, and staying at home, but we need to continue doing what is necessary by following the good advice we have heard from the experts. Please take care and do all you can to stay as safe as possible!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I am looking forward to reading your comments on the quote I have shared, but also on what I have written. What you think means a lot to me and I promise to respond to all comments as quickly as I can. I hope your week begins great and only gets better with each day. 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~

~Happy Friday Eve Y’all~

We have finally almost made it through this week! How has your week been? This week has been a long one, but it is almost over. Today is the day of my first virtual appointment with my new neurologist, I am hoping it goes well. I will do a post about how my appointment well, but I do appreciate all of your kind and encouraging comments!

Now that we only have one day left of this week, I think we could all use a little pick me up. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all, will serve you with the right amount of encouragement and lift you need to make it just one last day! With all that is going on with COVID and the stress it is causing, we all need to stay together and help one another get through all this stress!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your Friday Eve goes well and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. Please always remember I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Inspirational Wednesday!

Halfway Through The Week!

We are finally almost through the week and I am thrilled about that! This week has felt long for some reason. I hope y’all are having a great week though and you are looking forward for the weekend, which is getting much closer each day! Even though I do not have any plans for the weekend, I am still looking forward to not having to wake up early and sit in front of a computer for more than 8 hours a day. Don’t get me wrong, I am thankful that I am able to work from home, but that also means work and home are pretty much the same thing, it just gets a little confining.

While things around the world are still so uncertain and unpredictable, I think we need additional inspiration, motivation, and much more kindness! This was one reason I decided to add “Inspirational Wednesday” to my blog posts. I am hoping the inspirational quotes I share on Wednesday inspire you and provides you a little extra comfort! Of course, I think the quote I am sharing today is very inspiring because we all deal with something challenging in life and we must keep going. I do believe that everything in life happens for a reason and tends to happen at the right time. What do y’all think?

If y’all are following what the experts are predicting about COVID-19, you already know they believe we are in for more difficult times ahead of us. The numbers are consisting increasing and the deaths are way too high. I have admitted this to y’all before, but I am an overly sensitive person, so when I hear someone speaking on the news that lost a loved one to COVID, it breaks my heart. My husband and I stay home, and when we must leave the house we are taking all the necessary precautions. Neither one of us are ready to lose the other or anyone else in our family. I am saying this to reiterate to y’all to PLEASE continue doing what we all need to do! All of us can protect one another by simply wearing a mask!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you enjoyed the quote I shared and I hope you are all having a great week! I am sorry to always sound like a broken record with my pleads for everyone to stay safe, but we all have the opportunity to save another person’s life, and that includes our own! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday

We Need More Tranquility Daily For Our Sanity!

Happy Tuesday y’all! How has your week started off? My week has actually started pretty great, except for the ridiculous pain in my legs. I am thankful that I do not need to leave the house and do not have to walk much, but it still hard to deal with. Honestly, if I did have to leave the house and go to an office, I might not be able to because the pain in my legs is just that awful. Anyways, enough of that negativity and onto more positive news! Things with my job are going very well and I have even been requested from at least one of our lenders. I have made nice with them and really enjoy working with the lender!

We have made it through one day of this week and have four to go! From how the week started, I am thinking it is going to be a good week! I have my first appointment with my new neurologist on Thursday and thankfully it is virtual! I have heard nothing but great things about the new neurologist, so I am actually a little excited about it. I do not want to get my hopes up too high because I do not want to set myself up for disappointment, but we will see how it goes! From my own personal experience I know the typical personality of neurologists, but hopefully this one will be different.

To try to maintain the much needed tranquility we all need during these very challenging times, I have found what I think is a great quote. I do look forward to reading what you think about it though because your opinions matter so much to me! I find your comments truly amazing and insightful! I will do my best to respond to all your comments as quickly as I can, which might not be until I get off work.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a good week and of course, you are staying safe. Times with COVID are unfortunately getting even more scary, but as long as we are following what the experts are suggesting we should be okay! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

Let’s Begin This Week Off With A Positive Mindset!

Happy Monday y’all! How was your weekend? I hope your weekend was full of relaxation and happiness! Honestly, my weekend was fairly uneventful, and I enjoyed that. I feel sometimes we all need the entire weekend to recuperate from a long and busy week.

With all of the changes that have gone on with the weather, I have been dealing with my typical increased pain. Now, I do deal with this every time there is any changes in the weather, but for some reason Sunday was a lot worse. It is a good thing I didn’t have any plans and didn’t need to leave the house because my legs hurt so bad it was painful to even walk. No matter how high my pain is, I will never sit around and feel sorry for myself because it could always be worse and life if just too short I guess we all deal with health issues and we make the best of it.

Sadly, the weekend is over and we are at the beginning of a fresh new week. It isn’t even easy to say goodbye to the weekends, and my cats especially hate it because now Mommy will be in her home office locked away from them all day long the entire week. Yes, my cats are babies and demand a lot of attention! I almost feel a little guilty that I have to be locked away from them, but it would be nearly impossible because they would both be walking all over my desk, laptop, and the paperwork on my desk. They would amazing co-workers, if they would not try helping SO much!

Now that we are at the beginning of a new week, that is hopefully filled with fantastic opportunities I think we all could benefit from a little motivation! My hope is that the quote I am sharing with y’all will kick start your week with the right amount of motivation, optimism, and encouragement that is necessary to start a week off on the right track! I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote and also how your weekend was!

Oh my goodness, almost forgot to tell you about something truly shocking and amazing happened at almost 5:00 PM on Friday. Y’all know that I had started a new job a few months ago and the work is similar I have done previously. The only issues have been the lack of training and the consistent changes that do not usually make sense. Anyways, the good news is I received an email from a team lead telling what a good job I was doing, and that she and others in management were very impressed with me. This made me feel pretty great and helped build my confidence.

Thank you for visiting my site today and I hope you have a splendid start to your week! I know I have been slower with my responses to your comments, but I promise 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~

~It Isn’t Just A Thursday, It Is Friday Eve~

We are finally almost at the end of this extremely long week! How has your week been? I hope your week has been great and you are staying as safe as you possibly can. I am working the morning, well until noon and then going to a doctor’s appointment. Unfortunately, this is one of those appointments I have to go to the office for, but I am always safe! I definitely I wish I could have done it virtually, but some doctor’s are not very cooperative.

With only one day of the week left before the weekend that we are all always looking forward to, we might be needing just a little pick me up! I am truly hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will give you the lift you need to get through one more day! I am looking forward to reading what you thought about the quote I shared today and will respond as soon as I can, which hasn’t seemed to be very fast lately. In my defense, these headaches I keep having are miserable and it isn’t easy to look at the computer screen.

Do you remember the weekends before the pandemic? I remember days in the past when I would have ideas of what I wanted to do over the weekend, but since the pandemic invaded our lives my plans are to stay in the house and safe. Even though I am thankful to be able to work from home, it sometimes seems like I am always at work because I hardly ever leave the house anymore. Although I am not excited about driving to my doctor’s appointment, I am thrilled to be leaving the house for a few hours today!!!

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today! Your continued support and amazing comments are very appreciated. I hope your week has gone great and you are looking forward to a safe, and relaxing weekend! 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 have some very good news for y’all! It is almost the weekend! How has your week been so far though? I do hope your week has been wonderful and your are of course, staying safe! I know none of you will be surprised, but I do not really have any plans for the upcoming weekend and as boring as it might sound, it is the kind of weekend I look forward to. I do not have to get up early or work 8 extremely long hours. I plan to catch up on my favorite show, General Hospital and maybe even watch a movie I have been wanting to watch for months now, Bad Boys For Life!

As this week is coming to an end and we only have one more day to get through, I think we could all benefit from a pick me up! I am hoping the quote I am going to share with y’all will give you the little pick me up and optimism we all need! I do of course, look forward to reading your very valued comments and I promise to respond as quickly as I can!

We all know there is so much going on around the world that is not all that positive, but we are all doing the best we can. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is getting even more dangerous each day.

When a leader of country doesn’t take it seriously, why would we think anyone else would? I am saying this because even though the president of The United States did in fact end up in the hospital because of the virus he said was nothing more than a hoax or not that serious, still is subjecting people to the virus by NOT wearing a mask! I am just asking y’all to please follow guidelines that were given by the experts and really do know what they are talking about. If only more people would have acted in a more logical manner months ago, 212,000 American’s might still be a live today. I am not trying to get political about this, but these are the facts I have learned over the past few months!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I always appreciate your continued support and love reading your comments. I try the best I can to not put in my posts anything political because I do not want to offend anyone and believe we are all entitled to our opinions. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Inspirational Wednesday!

Our Goal Should Be To Inspire Others Daily!

Happy Wednesday y’all! Can you believe it, we are finally halfway through the week? I still can’t believe it is already October and the new year will be here before you know it! I would really love to hear from you and know how your week has been so far! I say this because I am always interested in how things are going for you, I mean I already know how my week has been and knowing about yours will make mine better!

As we are getting so much closer to the weekend and we only have a couple days left, I believe an inspiration quote might help us a little! i have a slew of quotes that I love, but the one I am sharing today is a little new to me and I hope you will not only enjoy it, but also find it inspiring! I am looking forward to reading about what you thought and promise to respond as quickly as I possibly can!

I am still trying to do more posts, but sometimes working gets in the way. Then on weekends, I am so tired and do not have the energy. I appreciate y’all always being understanding and continuing to visit my site. I do want y’all to know that I do have several things I have started writing about and working on making them perfect for you to read or as perfect as I can get them. I am hoping to have at least one of them up and published before the end of the weekend, so please stay tuned!

Thank y’all for visiting my site today! I hope you are having a lovely week and you are continuing to stay safe. I am sure you will agree with me, but I am beyond ready for a little normalcy to come back to us all! I hope you know how much I am looking forward to reading about how your week is going and what you thought about the quote I shared with y’all. I do have one last question, are y’all enjoying the quotes I am sharing Monday through Friday? Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Tranquil Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope you are having a lovely and safe week! Normally for Tranquil Tuesday, I share a quote to offer y’all good and calming thoughts, which I am still going to do. However, today with all the chaos and unrest that is going on throughout the world, I wanted to share some beneficial tips and ideas so you can have some additional tranquility and peace for yourself and those you would like to share this information with. My hope is these very simple tips will be useful, helpful, and calming for days ahead of us all.

1.Don’t be overly concerned with your self-image

All of us have an idea of how we appear to others, but we are normally wrong about what others think. It isn’t worth worrying about what others may think of us because we are who we are and always try the best we can daily. Others are either going to like or not like us and it isn’t always our fault, so all we are able to do is keep improving, but not worry about our image!

2. Stop trying to find yourself

Many people say that they need to find themselves and work out who they are. This is one way to give into fixation because logically, there’s nothing we need to find. We all have numerous things we are good at and nothing will ever take them away from us.

3. Acknowledge your uniqueness

Each individual person is different and unique in their own very special way. Nobody has the same views as you do and this is something to enjoy and learn from. Each individual also has their own take on everything as well.  This simply means we aren’t always right or wrong, and this should make us a lot more tolerant of others.

4. Produce a peaceful environment in life

People can be happy, even when times become difficult and uncomfortable. We all need an environment that is peaceful and calming so we can enjoy our life. One thing that is extremely crucial is, treating others with kindness, respect, and generosity. Honestly, most people will tend to reciprocate these acts with the same because you were able to create a safe and warming place. Happiness is what each person receives in this type of atmosphere.

5. Remain aware of the meaning of generosity

When your heart is into what you are giving, it is more meaningful. Giving clothes you no longer wear to charity, it tends to be just getting rid of old junk. We could all try giving away things we could still find useful every once in a while. Please do not get me wrong, giving away old clothes is still a great thing to do and sometimes is really all we are able to handle.

6. Live life today and NOW

We do not know what tomorrow holds for us, so live life now and in the present. Our past is a memory, not all good of course. We do all hope for the future, but we can’t count on anything besides right now. Truthfully, now all we really have and we need to live life to the fullest.

7. Be prepared to deal with change and the unpredictable

None of us know what tomorrow holds. Life is full of nothing but uncertainty. Unfortunately, this is just our reality. We must all continue to build on this logical thought process. This could be any number of situations, like being late for work because of traffic or losing a loved one. Things could be bad luck, but know you will have good luck as well.

8. Never forget, anger doesn’t work as a solution to your problems

Anger related emotions are our default setting as soon as we are wronged, especially by someone we care about and or trust. Anger is really just a virus that only poisons us and makes us feel even worse. Anger is a burden that we do not need to accept as part of our life because we have choices.

9. Face life with the spirit of acceptance

Sometimes we will struggle to change things we have to ability to change. Then there are other things we have no control over and need to learn to accept and tolerate what has or hasn’t taken place. Once we are able to pursue an attitude of acceptance and detachment, we will be able to move forward with our life!

10. Engage in life in a meaningful way

This means understanding what we find meaningful and truly meaningful. An activity we do only half-heartedly is more than likely not very meaningful to us. Oftentimes, when we are doing something we enjoy because we believe it is meaningful, it probably is in fact meaningful to us!

I hope you found these tips useful and would love to read your thoughts on it! Considering we have all been dealing with hard times for several months, I am sure y’all have some other tips you have learned over the past several months and I would love to know about them. It is so important to never give up on one another and we can truly help each other through the hard times we have witnessed. I also promised y’all another quote that I hope you will find calming and will give you some peace as well!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I am so excited to not only read your comments on this post, but also your additional ideas to create tranquility in our lives. I promise that I will respond to all comments we quickly as I can, which will probably when I am out of work, but I will respond! I hope you have a great 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!

Always, Alyssa

Motivational Monday!

All We Are Able To Do Is, Never Give Up!

Happy Monday y’all! It is never easy to begin another LONG week, but I do believe we all have the strength to do so! How was your weekend? I do hope you had a lovely and safe weekend. Are you ready to begin this new week off with nothing but positivity? I hope you are because each new week offers us another chance to make it be an amazing week full of opportunities!

My weekend was pretty uneventful, which was great because I was not feeling all that great. On Saturday, I started having a sore throat, which is very common for me because I end up dealing with this every time there is a change in seasons. Considering this was nothing new, I was not at all concerned, and believe me because of COVID, I would have been. On Sunday I also started having increased back and leg pain which was not any fun at all. I guess it is a good thing I am used to not leaving the house because I do not think I could have left the house. I guess another good thing is I have lived through pain for so long, it is just part of life for me and I don’t let it bother me too horribly and try to keep moving forward!

As we are beginning another week, I think a motivating quote could be helpful! I do hope you will find the quote I am sharing motivating enough to get your week started off the right way. I am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the quote and I promise to respond as quickly as I can. Let me just say the reason I love this quote so much is because we all have storms of life we battle and if we do not keep going we will never find the rainbow that will appear. I would also love the chance to read how your weekend was!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site today. I am so sorry that I did not finish a post I have been working on over the weekend, but after reading about my weekend, you can understand why I was not able to. I hope your week starts off great and only get better with each day until Friday! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa
