Motivational Monday

monday is a state of mindGood morning y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend and you are ready to start a brand new week that will be MUCH better than last week! Y’all already know last week wasn’t the best for me, but everyone has been so incredibly supportive by sending kind messages my way❤. I want to thank y’all for being SO encouraging during my difficult time. I did spend my weekend trying to rest, but not being all that successful because my mind is still spinning! You have my Monday to shineword that I am not going to focus on the past and just move forward to better times, after all everything happens for a reason and nothing really nothing is an accident❤!

Even though my mind has been in a tailspin, I do still believe we should all start our Monday off with a positive mind! The quote I want to share with y’all has so much meaning to me and maybe it is because of what I have gone through, but I think I would still find it meaningful if nothing bad had occurred. thomas edison

Seriously, y’all have been ❤ truly amazing ❤ during this past week and really everyday! I am so honored that I have made so many supportive and ❤ caring friends with my blog.

Giving my thanks!

happythankfulGood morning y’all! I hope your week has started off well and you are feeling the best you can!

Today is day two of my acknowledging what I am thankful for and actually writing it down! I am beyond thankful for our loving and hilarious cats. We have had one of our sweet fur babies for 13 years❤. Chloe has sweetness and sass to complete her unique personality but, you just can’t help but love her! Chloe can actually tell where I am hurting and feels that if she lays where I am in pain it will make it go away, which sometimes it does!

Our other sweet fur baby, Sundance, we have had for about 3 years. We were luckyCats enough to be able to adopt this ball of love ❤ and joy after his original owner sadly passed away. This little boy has the sweetest personality I have ever seen and would never hurt a fly. He only gets a little testy when I brush him, he absolutely HATES being brushed, but it isn’t an option for him!!

It is one of the most adorable things to walk in a room and see these ❤two cats cuddling with each other.We never in a million years would have thought Chloe would 20180210_101739 (1)allow another cat close enough to her in order to cuddle, but she has taken quite the liking to Sundance. Chloe even allows Sundance to give her LOTS of kisses ❤ on her little head! Their personalities are much different from one another, but their love ❤ for each other and my husband and I is endless!

It is very comforting to take time out of each day to reflect onto my life. Then to think of everything that is in my life that I would not be me without! It is crazy to look at how the smallest things in our lives, can make a huge difference daily in the big picture!

If you saw my post yesterday, my goal is to take a moment each day to write down at least one thing I am thankful for. I am hoping that y’all will try doing the same and maybe share with me a few things you are thankful for! At the end of this week, after I share one thing I am thankful for each day with you, I am going to take time to really reflect what are you thankful for todayback on what I wrote and hold onto those things. Some of the things I am thankful for have really surprised me, but I will get to that in a later post!

I want to thank y’all for visiting my site today. I always appreciate your time and your amazing comments, which I try to respond to as quickly as I can! Please let me know something that you are thankful for as I am sure it is fabulous! I hope y’all have a great day and you are feeling the best you can. Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

It’s time to show thanks!

what are you thankful for todayGood morning y’all! Y’all know I typically do not do multiple posts in a day, but this is an exception! With this being the week of Thanksgiving, I think we should all be thinking of what we are truly thankful for. Life gets so busy and we tend to forget to take a moment to acknowledge what we want to give thanks for. It might not be easy to do, but I think we should try to everyday think of and write down just one thing we are thankful for! It might be pretty interesting to reflect back on these at the end of the week!0

Today, I want to say how incredibly thankful for I am for the very loving ❤, accepting and helpful family I am blessed to have! I am lucky enough to have my mother and step father that always show their love❤, support and appreciation. I am also blessed enough to have married into another wonderful and loving family that I couldn’t have asked for better than them! Two loving families is just twice the love and support!❤

For the first day of this week, what is one thing you are thankful for? I hope y’all have a lovely day and I am looking forward to reading your response! Remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and many positive vibes!

What do you do to unwind?

Happy Friday forget the weekGood morning y’all and HAPPY FRIDAY!! I think the weeks start feeling longer the older we get, but maybe that is all in my mind! What do y’all think? With the weekend finally near, I am looking forward to my two days away from work and getting up early! I might not sleep in as much as I should, but just knowing I do not have anywhere to be is a breath of fresh air!

Do y’all have things you enjoy doing to unwind from the long work week? Some of the things I truly enjoy doing and help me relax are similar to what I do in the evenings, but with more freedom and knowing the alarm will NOT wake me in the morning. I think some of what I actually enjoy others might view as stressful, but for me they WORK! Writing is something that helps me get mychristianlouboutin1 feelings and stress off my shoulders. This is something that I need because otherwise I would be even more of a massive stress case. Even though I write several hours before bedtime or when I should be preparing for sleep, I have been told (by the NP), I should not be doing so. I have said this numerous times before, but I am the only one that knows my body and what is beneficial to me. These are the types of comments and or advice I have learned to ignore or just let pass on in my mind. 

It can become a little difficult during the work week when I am too tired from work to give my nelson-mandela-quoteblogger friends the true attention they deserved. If I am too tired or in too much pain, I save reading others posts for the weekend, when I can really absorb what I am reading and then leave the best comments I can. This produces amazing friendships❤!

I honestly enjoy writing and making strong connections with others around the world. This  allows for me to learn from others different ways to handle life and the struggles we all face.  

I also really love trying to spread positivity to as many as I can! Life can get so complicated and really frustrating and we all have bad days! Even though my posts are full of reality and come straight from my heart❤, I do not sugar coat anything EVER. If I am having a horrible day my post might start off on the negative side, but they always flip to positive before it is done. The reason this happens is because I am getting the frustrations I am feeling out and finding a different way to view my struggles before I end the post. 

Now that I have shared something that actually helps me unwind and chill out, what helps y’all unwind and relax? I am interested to hear what you find beneficial as I knowrelax unwind and chill we all have different methods. What works for me, might not work for another.  Just as what works for you, might not be as helpful to me. All of this is okay because we are all uniquely different, which is what makes us special.

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today! I always appreciate you taking the time to read and LOVE❤ your comments. I am also very excited to read what you find helpful to relax after another long week! I hope you have a very lovely Friday and hope your weekend is fabulous! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

What are the joys of a long weekend?

happy-long-weekendGood morning y’all! I hope you have had a delightful week and you are looking forward not to the typical weekend, but a LONG weekend! Even though I personally do not have any extravagant plans for my three-day weekend, I am so happy to have one! Between dealing with my typical MS pain, daily to-do’s and horrible negativity at work, my week has been extremely long and aggravating! I am thrilled to have three days away from work!

What do you look forward to when you have a long weekend? I know this will sound crazy and very simple, but I look forward to not having a schedule to follow! I do not have to get up at a certain time, be on the drive to work by a specific time, perform the same tasks during work hours, be in bed by a certain time to get a decent amount of longweekendsleep and so on. When I do not have to be at work I am not woken by an annoying alarm clock and can sleep in, not that I sleep long anyways, but still I do not have to be up at 5:15 am! The alarm clock becomes my enemy during the week because it never misses a beat and goes off at the same damn time every day, which I know that is what it is supposed to do, but it is still annoying! On weekends I can wake up and even fall back asleep or take naps if I find myself too tired. If only we could take naps at work, the days would be SO much happier!

I mentioned earlier that I have a difficult week and part of it was due to dealing with SO much negativity at work. How do y’all deal with negativity in the work place? I did my very best to ignore it and just walk away, but honestly things were wearing on me to a 291c5c14c410d5c8f270226eba5e2182horrible point. I allowed for one person’s personality/bad attitude to cause me way too much stress. Logically I know that the way this person acts is his problem not mine, but he manages to wear his feelings on his sleeve and facial expression. His behaviors have brought me to tears way too many times before and I know he isn’t worth it, but the comments still bother me to an extreme. It gets difficult to walk away from someone with negative energy when that person is your direct supervisor, but I have been trying to keep my distance the best I can! If y’all have any other advice on how to handle this, I am open for suggestions. 

Thank y’all so much for stopping by my site this morning. I always appreciate you taking the time to read what I write about and love❤ reading your comments. I find all of your comments very enlightening and they open my mind to other ways of thinking. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and I hope your weekend is fabulous! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!

Never a straight answer!

Relaxing QuotesGood afternoon y’all! I hope you have had a wonderful day! Look on the bright side, we have made it through two days and only have three to go!

So, y’all already know that I had the brain MRI on Friday evening, but of course I am not able to get the results until Thursday afternoon when I see the Nurse Practitioner! Typically I have always been able to read the radiologists reports online, but for some UNKNOWN reason the results are blocked to my viewing! Thankfully I do honestly prefer to see the NP rather than seeing the doctor because the doctor left a really bad taste in my mouth after her reaction to the MRI I had last October. I still find her reaction very unprofessional and disturbing, but what’s done is done and there is no correcting that experience! In front of my husband she actually told us it was the WORST MRI she had ever seen! I mean I think I reacted just as anyone else would as this was a very rude and hurtful way to share the results. Unfortunately in front of her I did cry, but then got extremely angry! Her reaction made me feel absolutely terrible, like I was going downhill fast and my illness was just progressing rapidly!Waiting torture

On Monday when I was not able to view the radiologists report, I contacted my doctor’s office. Monday afternoon the nurse responded back to my email by saying it did not look like my MRI had changed much since the one I had in October. That should have been good news and good enough, right? But being the person I am that wants more answers, I simply asked if this was indicating that considering I was still feeling the same way and the MRI apparently had not changed all that much since October, does this mean that I am just going to feel this way for the rest of my life? I think that was a very valid question, don’t you? Today this same nurse went from saying the MRI did not show much change to saying the doctor weighed in and he was not able to share any information with me as I need to wait to see the NP. How does something change so much overnight? I just do not understand why he suddenly is unable to share anything else with me. The way my mind works is I am thinking something a little more has changed and the NP needs to discuss this with me so I am clear on the situation at hand! Do you think I am overreacting?

waiting for answersI can be semi-logical sometimes because I do know there is nothing I can do to change what my MRI has found, but yet I still can not get my mind to slow down! Last night being SO stressed about this, I was able to contact a fellow blogger on Facebook. I thank Alex so much as she really did make me feel so much better, but now today I am back to being stressed to the MAX! Thanks to the blogging community and people as wonderful as Alex I know I have support and encouragement when I need it most! If you have not already visited Alex’s site, I am going to strongly recommend it. Alex offers so much support, love, compassion, and understanding, which I do think you will find as well once you visit her amazing site https://mswithmsalex.com/. Sending you so much LOVE ❤and thanks Alex!

Thank y’all for stopping by my site today and I do really look forward to your comments. Your comments always mean so much to me and really add some fantastic insights that I probably have not been able to see. I hope you have a nice and relaxing evening. Please always remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!
