Sunday Thoughts

Happy Sunday y’all! What do you enjoy doing most on a Sunday? What do you think Sundays are best for? Are you doing anything special today or just relaxing around the house? Of course, it is the day before the new week begins, but we do not have to think about the start of the week until tomorrow morning! Whatever you decide to do on a Sunday, is your choice and no one should ever try to make you do anything you do not want to do. Today is your day to do whatever it is YOU want to do😊!

My day started by waking up to our adorable cat, Luna (aka Lunatic). The sweet little girl fell asleep with me last night and stayed with me all night. I think she was trying to find a way to make my evil headache go away, which was sweet! Like every other morning, I give our older cat his medicine and all three of them their Fancy Feast breakfast! I then watched a few things on YouTube that my husband wanted to show me after his long night of work and before he went to bed. Of course, I did the last few loads of laundry, while watching a movie with our cats. My favorite way to spend a Sunday is relaxing with my loves in my house and trying to write or read a little!

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and you were able to do the things that bring you joy. Life is short, so we should ALWAYS try at least once a week to do something that makes us happy. I think y’all know that I enjoy reading and sharing quotes. I discovered one this weekend that stood out to me. We are living in a crazy world right now where the only thing that is not unpredictable is chaos and insanity. I suppose this is the reason I found the quote I am sharing with you to be so incredibly profound. I guess this quote makes me wonder if we try seeing the world from a different angle if it could start to make sense!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you enjoyed what I have shared with you today and I look forward to reading your comments. I will be responding to comments as quickly as I can because this is something that I feel brings us all closer together. We might not live in the same state or country, but we do share this same enormous world together. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Sunday Thoughts

It is hard to believe that we have so few hours left of the weekend, but at least we are alive and were able to have a weekend. As y’all already know, I have been battling with a massive headache for far too many days. I can only speculate what the cause is because I have lived with them for many years. I have discussed the headaches with doctors before, which includes my MS specialist, and they were not successful in an adequate or effective treatment option. Even though I have been advised that it is not normal to have a constant headache for 7 days and that I “should” go back to a doctor, I do not see a point and feel like going back to a doctor about these headaches would be a waste of time and money.

I have never claimed to be a genius, but I am smart enough to know that having a constant terrible headache for as of now is 7 days, is not normal. I do know that Multiple Sclerosis has been one part of the headache issues before, but during the present time, I think stress might be a key factor. Yes, I know there are many things in life we have no control over, and therefore we should not stress over them. I also believe that everything in life happens for a reason and things have a way of working out for the best. Of course, knowing this and not allowing myself to be engulfed in worrying about things in life are challenging. 

There are things in our lives that do not discriminate, stress is one of them. It does not matter who you are, where you are from or anything else, stress can invade your life and try to take control. How do you handle stress in your life? I know the things in my life that cause me the most stress and some of them can be eliminated. Unfortunately, most of us must work and pay bills, so those are two that cannot be ignored or removed. During this weekend, I have been thinking about what causes me the most stress and what I can eliminate from my life. To make things easier for myself, I might start with removing one thing at a time and see if the headaches subside! I am willing to try just about anything at this point because I am in desperate need of a break from headaches!

I would like to believe that I am strong, and I refuse to let stress or these headaches dominate or control my life. I might be a little like my cats, we do not like being told what to do and in turn will do the opposite of what we are told😊! I am hoping by eliminating things gradually from my life that I know cause me stress will help to eradicate my headaches or at least reduce the frequency and severity of them!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you had a lovely, relaxing, and safe weekend😊! I know our weekends are never long enough, but I guess it could be worse and we are not able to have a weekend at all. Monday mornings are always a little daunting, but the new week might hold what we have been needing😊! I am looking forward to reading your comments and will respond as quickly as possible. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Happy Sunday! Unfortunately, our weekend is almost over and it does not feel like we even had one. Crazy how incredibly fast the weekends go by, isn’t it? How has your weekend been? My weekend has been uneventful, which I do enjoy. My outside kitty has come to visit me every night, except for when it is raining. She has become more comfortable with me and even tried to get on my lap when I was visiting with her last night. It might sound mean, but I did not let her because I am unsure if she has fleas and I do not want my three precious inside cats to get fleas because that would not be fair to them.

Of course, like always two of my three cats did wake me up yesterday at 6:30 AM, but they did not bother me this morning! Even though they did not wake me, I was still awake early. I have been able to sit with each of them and watch TV during these two short days of our weekend. They all enjoy spending time on my lap and snuggling, which I must admit I also enjoy, well until Willow thinks it would be fun to nip at me. My husband tries telling me they are love bites, but they do hurt sometimes.

I know we do not have a choice, but are you ready for the week to begin tomorrow? Honestly, I could use a few more days to rest and recuperate, but I know that is not an option. I suppose the only thing we can do is accept our fate and take the last few hours to get ready for the new week. Hopefully, the week will not be near as bad as I am expecting and it will be filled with opportunities and hope! I do know that the three cats are not happy the week is beginning tomorrow because they much prefer to have me around all the time, even when they are sleeping!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have enjoyed your weekend and stayed as safe as possible. I am working on a post that I hope to complete soon. I will give you a clue as to what it is about, manipulation. I look forward to 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!

Full disclosure and I am sorry in advance. I know I am mentioned the following statement multiple times over the years, but it still stands to be true, and I feel is worth repeating. Although life can be complicated and exhausting at times, life is short. No matter what we go through or how overwhelmed we feel, we should never give up and must do what brings us the most joy. We do not need to explain ourselves to anyone because this is our life. Other people may not agree with how we live our life or any of the decisions we make, but no one needs to understand why we made certain decisions. As long as we are not causing harm to anyone else, it should not matter how we are living our lives. 

Over the past several years and the first days of knowing what COVID was, and the damning effects it inflicted, many have been stressed and scared. These feelings are normal because COVID has killed so many. I am sure everyone has heard another strain that is more contagious making its way through the world. The new strain BA.5 has caused illness in people that have been vaccinated and boosted, which has been upsetting. However, we all must keep our vaccinations current because, without them, the chances of survival decrease significantly. It does seem as though anytime we think we have seen the last of COVID, something new appears.

I do understand that many people were hesitant about the COVID vaccine when we were first introduced to it, and many refused to get the vaccine because it was so new. We are all entitled to our opinions, but if we look at how many unvaccinated people have died when they got COVID to the number of vaccinated people that had a breakthrough infection and survived, it seems like an easy and logical decision. Scientists have stated that those who get the newest strain of COVID that are vaccinated have experienced less severe symptoms and heal faster than those who are unvaccinated. Recently, a friend of mine got sick with COVID. She has an underlying condition and was double vaccinated and had the booster, she has made a full recovery but might not have if she was not vaccinated. I think the decision to be vaccinated or not is a gamble with our lives and I am not a gambler!

Another issue everyone around the world is experiencing is the unbearable heat! Yesterday I had to go out to do a few things, which I normally do not have to do. The heat was so awful that walking from my front door to the truck caused more dizziness and irritation. Do you wonder why the heat is so out of control? Is there any doubt that global warming is real? The healthiest people in the world cannot tolerate this heat, so for anyone who battles with health issues, it can feel like their life is being sucked out of them. Extreme temperatures have always caused me additional problems with my Multiple Sclerosis, but the extreme heat is making things 100 times more intense. I told my husband yesterday that I am not leaving the house during the day anymore until at least November. I did look ahead at what the weather was going to be like next week and it looks as though more miserable days with heat are coming!

What are some of the most important things in your life? Do you think anyone should have to explain why they love who they love? Does it seem like there is too much hatred filling this world? I am unable to understand hate and I do not think I ever will understand it because, in my opinion, we are all human and deserve to be treated fairly and with compassion. We will never know what someone else is going through in life unless we try. Sometimes a person will have an unpleasant attitude because they are struggling with something in their life, but it is possible they just need someone to understand and offer them love. Do you ever think that being kind to another person might have a HUGE impact on their life and make a difference? I do without a doubt!

Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you are having a good weekend and staying safe. I am looking forward to reading your comments and hope that you have enjoyed this post. I will respond to all comments as quickly as I can. It is a little sad the weekend is becoming to an end soon and we will be getting ready for another long week, but if we view each week as an opportunity, it might make it a little easier😊! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!
