It is catch up time!

whirlwindThe past few weeks have been like a whirlwind with so many changes and I feel like I am constantly on the go. Packing up the home my husband and I lived in for 8 years was extremely overwhelming, but we managed to get it done. It is crazy how much 2 people can accumulate over the years! We already have 4 rather large boxes packed up ready to be donated to either Goodwill or Crisis Ministry. I feel like it is far better to donate to others in need than keep items we do not use and never just throw things away!

I am sorry if I have not responded to your comments or had a chance to read your playing catch upfabulous posts, it might take me some time, but I am going to be playing catch up for a few days. Please bear with me through this transition and I will be back to normal, well as normal as I can get soon! I do miss y’all and I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. 

I will give  y’all a brief run-down of how things are going for me and my husband. I did start my new job and it is great! I am working full-time again which I have not done in a long time, but I am doing well. The people I work with now are absolutely incredible! We have been living in our new place for one week now and I know how to get to 3 places, work, the grocery store and the pharmacy! Pretty amazing, right?! We are still in the dontprocess of getting things organized, but we have plenty of time for all that so there is no use rushing anything! With working full-time again, I am still going to do my best to continue creating blog posts, but they definitely will not be daily. Again, please do not give up on me because I am going to be returning to doing what I really enjoy, which is my blog and communicating with y’all!

I hope y’all have a nice evening and you are feeling well! Always remember that no matter what I might be going through in life,❤ I will always be sending y’all LOTS of love ❤and comfort!

My last day at work!

GoodmorningwishesonFridayimages-compressedGood morning y’all! I hope you have had a wonderful week and you are looking forward to the weekend! I have been looking forward to today for weeks now!

Today is my last day with my current employer before my husband and I start a new journey in our life together. We will be moving to a new beautiful city next week, where I will also be starting work with a new company! There is going to be a lot of much desired changes in the next week. Change is both exciting and a little terrifying, but I do believe it will betoday well worth all of it.

Moving is bittersweet because my husband and I started our loving ❤ journey together where we currently live. However, where we are moving to also holds so many great and fabulous memories. I am very confident saying that with the strength of our love ❤ for each other, we can make anywhere we live a happy place to call home! ❤It is going to be a true honor and privilege to start this new chapter of our life in the home his amazing grandparent’s raised their children. 

not moving farNow with all this said, I am probably going to be away from my blog for a short time in order to get the move completed and start my new job. I do promise to return with fun updates as soon as I am able! Please stay tune to hear about our exciting new chapter! Never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love❤ and comfort!

Motivational Monday!

Monday to shineGood morning y’all! I hope you had a nice weekend! As y’all already know, where I live dealt with Hurricane Florence’s aftermath. Thankfully, my husband and I do not live too close to the coast, so we just had LOTS of rain and strong winds. Things definitely could have been much worse than they were for those living inland. 

Considering my weekend was spent safely in my house worrying about the insane weather, I definitely need a little motivation to start my week off on a positive note. I think starting the week off with positivity makes for a far better week. I hope you enjoy this quote and I am really looking forward to reading your comments, which I will respond to as quickly as I can! difficulties

I hope you have a fantastic day and a lovely week! I actually have several reasons why this is going to be a GREAT week! Friday is my last day at my current job before my husband and I move away from the city we started our journey together! I will be starting a new job on September 28th and I think it is going to be a fabulous job and really perfect for me! Moving and starting a new job is both exciting and nerve-wrecking, but everything happens for a reason and change can be a wonderful thing! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤ and comfort!

The Beauty of Mindfulness – by Milan Bakrania

I found this post to give amazing advice and wanted to share it with y’all! If you have not already checked this site out, I think it provides some amazing thoughts that are very helpful!

Kindness Blog

When was the last time you gave your brain a rest?

Can you remember a time when you were not regretting the past or worrying about the future, when you were still and unburdened?

There’s something about the human race that makes us different from other living things. We can contemplate, question our existence, revel in exploration and realize our dreams. But, we can also tire ourselves out. Yes, we’ve embraced stress, there’s no doubt about it and the festive season is a particularly stressful time because of the expectations placed on individuals.

Thankfully, we’re good at finding solutions. One of the ways we deal with stress is by using an ancient method called mindfulness.

The idea of focusing the mind is older than recorded history. We’re all capable of doing it. Athletes do it all the time, as do musicians, stage performers, doctors and students. They enter a zone…

Final Day of the Song/Lyric Challenge

music noteGood morning y’all! I hope you have a wonderful day and I hope you are feeling well!

This is my final Day of the Lyric Challenge. I was so incredibly happy to have been nominated for this challenge from Just Me at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com. I have been nominated for numerous challenges over the year I have been blogging and I have enjoyed all of them, but this lyric/song challenge added a little additional excitement for me to be able to share some of my favorite songs. It is fun to share just a few songs that I love and the reason why as well! I hope you have enjoyed the songs I have shared with you. Also I want to thank Just Me again for thinking of me for this fun challenge and I do encourage y’all to visit Just Me’s site at https://happymesshappiness.wordpress.com, I think you will find it to be a great read!

Of course there are rules to follow all challenges, but they are not that difficult. I have found ways to break the rules in other challenges, but I behaved in this one and followed the rules (some of you are probably shocked). With that said here are pretty easy rules for this challenge:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics, one at a time for three days
  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day

imagesMy final song/lyric I am going to share with you is another song from The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. This was one of the first songs I heard from this band and even before I asked Ronnie where he came up with this song, I could feel the meaning behind the song! It is an extremely powerful song and I hope you will enjoy it and understand the true meaning behind it.

Face Down – The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Hey girl you know you drive me crazy
One look puts the rhythm in my hand
Still I’ll never understand why you hang around
I see what’s going down

Cover up with make up in the mirror
Tell yourself it’s never gonna happen again
You cry alone and then he swears he loves you

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

A pebble in the water makes a ripple effect
Every action in this world will bear a consequence
If you wait around forever you will surely drown
I see what’s going down

I see the way you go and say you’re right again
Say you’re right again
Heed my lecture

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”

One day she will tell you that she has had enough
It’s coming round again

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Do you feel like a man
When you push her around?
Do you feel better now, as she falls to the ground?
Well I’ll tell you my friend, one day this world’s got to end
As your lies crumble down, a new life she has found

Face down in the dirt
She said “This doesn’t hurt!”
She said “I finally had enough!”
