Let It Go Friday

~Finally, Happy Friday!

I have some really wonderful and amazing news for y’all! Of course, this week has not been a great one because I went through another loss, my Grandmother passed away last Sunday, but the good news is this week is finally over! It does feel like the weeks are getting longer, but I guess it could be worse. The other issue with this week was, I had an awful headache that started on Tuesday evening and it did not ease up much. I am used to headaches, but they are no fun at all How was your week? I hope you had a good week and you are continuing to stay safe!

Now that the weekend is finally here, do you have any plans? This will not be a surprise to any of you, but I pretty much have nothing planned. The only thing I would like to do over the weekend is finally finishing two posts I started but was not able to complete because of the nasty headache, but I do not want to make any promises. Whatever plans you have for the weekend, please just stay safe. Not only is COVID not under control, but three new variants are evading the United States and many other countries as well.

Now that this week is just about over, we need to take this time to let go of anything negative that occurred during the week, so we can enjoy the short weekend! I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all today will offer you some comfort and help to let go of negative emotions. I am looking forward to reading your comments on the quote I am sharing and promise to respond as quickly as I can! I just want to quickly tell y’all why I love this quote as much as I do. Our life is so short and we do not know what it has in store for us. It is crucial to understand that tomorrow is not a promise and we need to enjoy the life we were given!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you had a great week and you have a nice, and safe weekend! I am going to try to finish the few posts I started last week, and stick to my typical blogging schedule next week. Between the nasty headache I had and the loss of my Grandmother, I did not have enough energy to do my normal post, but I am going to get back on schedule. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Let It Go Friday

~We Finally Made It, Happy Friday ~

I am so glad that we finally made it through this week! I do not know about you, but I think this has been a painfully LONG week! Of course, work has been busy, which I like, but I can use a break from the insanity! I am not sure if it is stress-related or the colder weather, but my pain levels have increased drastically. Yes, I am going to be getting the first COVID vaccine tomorrow morning and if I am being completely honest, I am nervous about it. I am not nervous about getting a shot, however, I am nervous if this vaccine will have a negative interaction with the medication I take for the MS. At least I do not work the weekend and my husband will be sure nothing bad happens to me, and if all else fails the hospital is close to where I am going for the vaccine.

Our work week tends to be stressful and even cause some negative emotions to bubble up. Now that the weekend is so close, it is time to let go of all bad energy and feelings and just enjoy the short weekend. As I get older, I am understanding more and more, we have to do what brings us joy and care much less about what others think of us. As long as we are continuing to be kind, caring, understanding, and fair to others we are doing everything right. I am hoping the quote I am sharing with y’all will help remind you to live your life doing what you love and not trying to impress anyone else!

What do y’all have planned for your weekend? Y’all know I never do anything over the weekend, but you also know I am leaving the house tomorrow! Is it crazy that I am excited to leave the house but nervous about why I am leaving the house? Does anyone reading this post have Multiple Sclerosis, take Gilenya, and have received the COVID vaccine? I know that everyone experiences medication and side effects differently, but it might help relieve my anxiety to hear from someone that can give me a little information about the vaccine.

Thank you for visiting my site today! I really appreciate you continuing to visit and love reading your comments. It might sound silly to some, but I consider all my fellow bloggers friends. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~We Made It Through The First Week of 2021~

Happy Friday y’all! I hope y’all had a great week and you are looking forward to the weekend ahead of us! My week has not been awful, but I am looking forward to a quiet and relaxing weekend. This getting up early thing and working at least 9 hours each has been exhausting. It is not any different from normal, but I feeling overly tired this week, and maybe a little stressed. It is possible it has something to do with the weather being so chilly and there still being an obnoxious amount of political drama still. Who would have thought this many weeks after the election there would still be so much non-sense? I almost think it is a little sad that there are this many adult men acting like toddlers.

Life in general can stressful, but work can add more stress. I think there is already enough for us to tolerate and get through, but with COVID still spreading like wildfire and political craziness, we all need a break. Do you ever have days you just want to hide under the covers or bury you head in the sand? I have definitely felt like this lately. I think over this weekend, I am going to try to stay hidden under the covers and just relax quietly by myself!

Now that we made it through this week, it is time to try letting go of any negative emotions the week may have caused. The weekends are so short and it is best to enjoy it the best we can without having it hindered by unsettling feelings. The reason why I chose this quote for today is because we are always going to face the storms of life and all we can do is keep ourselves calm. I hope this quote will offer you some help to let go of things that are weighing on you, but I do look forward to reading your thoughts. I promise to respond as quickly as I can, even if it is over the weekend!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! Whatever your plans are for the weekend, please just remember to stay safe. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

~Our Weekend Is Finally Here~

Happy Friday y’all! I hope you had a great week and you are looking forward to enjoying your weekend, safely of course! Do you have anything planned for the weekend? No surprise to anyone, I have no plans at all. Truthfully, I really like a weekend with no plans involved and not just because I need a break after the long week, but also because it is SO much safer! I do want to try writing a post about the doctor’s appointment I had yesterday and about celebrating holidays during a pandemic.

Now that we are at the end of this week, some of us may have some pent up frustrations from the week to let go of. Y’all already know that I do not think we should ever cloud our very short weekends with the dark feelings we had during the week. With the massive amount of negativity that is bleeding through the states, oceans, and countries, we need to try our best to distance ourselves from the negative people and things! I hope the quote I am sharing today will help you let go of the problems, avoid overly negative people, and enjoy your weekend with a positive outlook on life! Negative emotions are contagious, but so are positive emotions!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have good day and a great, and safe weekend! I would love to know how your week was and also what you thought about the quote I shared today! Now, I did say I do not have any plans for the weekend, especially out of the house, but I would love to continue crocheting the blanket I am making for my mother and her boyfriend and write a few posts. I do want to ask y’all to please stay safe this weekend! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Pandemic Crisis

~The Never Ending Crisis~

I know I have talked about COVID-19 numerous times since the pandemic started, but sadly things are only getting worse every day. The state that I live in surely isn’t the only one, but it has had a HUGE surge in new COVID-19 cases and deaths. I know it isn’t a good thing to live in fear because life is too short to live that way, but I am terrified of this virus and I think for good reason.

Currently, I basically do not even have an immune system and that is due to the medication I take for Multiple Sclerosis. So, I am dealing with a medication that is supposed to be slowing the progression of the MS but also weakens my immune system to a dangerous level with this virus being as uncontrollable as it is. Let me put it like this, from Monday to Friday in a city with about 68, 560 people living in it, there were 1,187 new cases. That is only the reported cases and who knows how many others are a systematic and have no idea they are sick and spreading a deadly virus.

If you pay attention to the news, you will see that thousands of people are dying daily from this virus. I am not able to watch the news without crying and maybe it’s because I am overly sensitive, but I can’t understand how this wouldn’t tug on everyone’s heartstrings. Some of these innocent people that have died with COVID never leave their homes and others were extra careful, and still ended up with the virus that took their life. How sad is it when someone loses someone they love and can’t even have a normal funeral because of a deadly virus? For me this is heart wrenching and unimaginable.

Of course, I do not for even a second believe we were informed in a proper time frame or manner. If only we received the warnings when those in charge knew there was a deadly virus spreading, maybe we would be in a safer and better place today, and maybe those that lost their life would still be with the ones they love. I do not see how it is possible for a President, Prime Minister, Chancellor, or whatever the name of the leader is would not be made aware of something like a deadly virus and not act accordingly for the safety of the citizens, but this did happen this year because our President cared more about reelection and lost anyway.

This year’s holidays are very challenging and unique. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and I feared going anywhere because of COVID. Christmas is only a few weeks away and I honestly do not feel safe leaving my house. There are so many what-ifs and no clear answers. My husband and I always went to my mother and stepfather’s house for Christmas Eve, but that isn’t happening this year for a few reasons and of course, COVID is one of those reasons. We would then go to my in-law’s house on Christmas day and I am not sure that is happening this year, only because of COVID.

Then there is New Year’s Eve. It is definitely a time to celebrate 2020 ending and 2021 starting, but what do you do on New Year’s Eve? That is right, people hug and or kiss. How can you even celebrate the New Year when you have to (or at least should) social distance? I can tell you that my husband and I will do what we have done for the past few years, which is to stay home just the two of us with our two sweet fur babies. Even before COVID, staying home was a safer way to bring in the New Year, or at least I feel like I am too older to celebrate at a bar with way too many people too close together. I have not ever enjoyed crowds because it makes me uncomfortable and nervous.

This is the first time I started writing without overthinking it. I knew what I wanted to write about, but I didn’t know the way it would come together. I typically write my posts out by hand because I feel more connected to what I am writing when it is written by hand. I am trying to change the way I think because I don’t think it make sense to write it out and then type it because it is kind of like doing double the work. Y’all have probably heard this saying before, “Work smarter not harder!” I am going to start doing this.

Thank you so much for visiting my site today. I hope your weekend has started off great and you are safely enjoying your time away from work. I think this is the first weekend in a while that I am not working overtime and it is rather nice. I might have been getting a little burnt out, which does not help the pain I deal with daily. I do look forward to reading your comments and I promise to 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!

~We Finally Made It Through The Week!~

Happy Friday y’all! I hope y’all had a great and safe week. My week was, of course, busy but it does make the days go by so much faster. There are a few reasons I am excited for the weekend. It will be so nice to not have to wake up early and work for 8 to 9 hours. Then deal with staring at a computer screen and explaining to people what I need them to provide me with so their loans can be purchased. It is going to be amazing to have free time to work on cleaning, organizing, and anything else I want to do and make me happy!

Now that the weekend is finally here, what are your plans? Y’all already know that COVID is serious and the numbers are increasing steadily, so PLEASE stay safety! We all want to enjoy life, but to continue enjoying life we must practice all the safe precautions that experts have suggested!

The final day of the week before the weekend we all look forward to begins, is the perfect day to let go of all stress and negative feelings the week put on us! There is no reason to carry these emotions into the very short weekend that is meant to be enjoyed! I hope the quote I am sharing with y’all today will offer you the strength to let go of any unpleasant feelings you have from the week and you will be able to enjoy your weekend to the fullest!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I truly appreciate the time you take to read what I write and the quote I share. I love reading your comments and being able to discuss things when you need to. I hope you have a great day and you are feeling well. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

~The Week Is Finally Over & We Can Enjoy The Weekend!~

Happy Friday and all I can say is I am SO glad the week is over and the weekend is finally here! For some reason this week has been excruciatingly long and painful. I do like when my days are busy at work, but working almost 40 hours in 4 days is insane! I don’t know about y’all, but I am looking forward to the weekend with hopefully NO more political chaos and lunatic behaviors.

Now that we have almost made it to the weekend, we must learn how to let go of the craziness the week brought us. There is absolutely no need to ruin the short weekend with our work-week business! These next two short days must be spent doing what brings us the most happiness and peace because they do fly by so fast. This means we do not need to make plans or set any kind of schedule because that is what the work-week is all about. I am pretty sure I told y’all yesterday that my weekend would be spent cleaning, organizing, reading (hopefully), and maybe get some writing into the mix. With that said, what are you looking forward to most this weekend? I do hope the quote I am sharing will help you let go of anything and everything that isn’t necessary!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope you have a great day ! Of course, I want y’all to have a lovely and relaxing weekend, but I do urge you to stay safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and MANY positive vibes!

Let It Go Friday!

We Finally Made It! Happy Friday Y’all!

Now that the week is finally over, how was your week? I hope you had a lovely week and you remained safe! This week seemed unusually long and I am not 100% as to why. I guess it could be due to the fact I have not been feeling my best and not sleeping all that well, but at least the weekend is finally here! Do you have any plans for the weekend? Normally, I do a grocery delivery for Saturday morning, but I decided I didn’t want to have to get up at any certain time. I have scheduled my grocery delivery for tonight right after work!

Now that the weekend is here, we all know how incredibly short it is. We deserve to have a nice and relaxing weekend, without any of the stress or negative emotions the week might have caused. This is my reason for doing “Let It Go Friday” because today is a great day to let go of those emotions. Do you agree Friday is a day we should just let go of the past week and enjoy our weekend? The quote I am sharing might not be my typical let it go kind of quote, but I think it is an important message.

I am going to say that some of my plans for the weekend is to not only catch up on rest, but with my writing and reading. I have not meant to be slack about these, but working 40+ hours a week is exhausting. I am ashamed to say that I have started multiple different posts and not finished them completely. I do not feel right about putting something up for y’all to read that is only subpar and prefer to give it 100%. My hope it to at least complete one of the few I have started and hope you will enjoy it!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your week has gone well, you have a fantastic day, and your weekend is all that you want it to be. Like always, my only request is for y’all to please stay safe! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Let It Go Friday!

The Week Is Over, Let’s Enjoy The Weekend!

Finally, happy Friday y’all! Are you ready for the weekend to finally begin? Do you have any plans for the weekend? As always, I hope whatever your plans are you will stay very safe! I am sure you can already guess, the only plans I have for the weekend is quiet and peaceful time! This past week was not awful, it just felt rather long. I think a weekend of not leaving house, not working, and not having any real plans sound absolutely amazing!

Now that we have come to the end of the week, was there anything you experienced that caused you any unpleasant emotions? There is so much going on around the world, it can get difficult to not get pulled into the negativity, but we have to try. Now that we have the short weekend to look forward to, there is no room for any negativity. Today is the perfect day to let go and just enjoy ourselves! I hope the quote that I am sharing will help you let go of anything that happened during the week, you may have wished didn’t happen.

I know it seems like we are all extremely isolated because of COVID, but it will hopefully end someday sooner than later. In the past our weekends were spent very differently than they are now, but at least we have many happy memories from the past and will hopefully make news ones in the future. It isn’t easy to stay inside our homes every single day and working from home adds to the isolation. It is so crazy to say, but work used to be from home and now it is just one in the same! Sometimes safety is more important than having fun!

Thank you for visiting my site today! I hope your Friday is beautiful and your weekend will be full of happiness. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!

Always, Alyssa

Let It Go Friday!

To Enjoy The Weekend & Let Go Of Any Negative Emotions!

Finally, happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I do hope your week has been great, and you are looking forward to a safe and great weekend! Our weekends seem to be getting shorter, and it is important to let go of any negativity the week may have exposed, so we can enjoy the short weekend. There is so much going on around the world from COVID-19 to the brutality from police officers to protesting in most US states, it is so hard to continue being positive but we must at least try.

Now that our week is coming to an end, do you have plans? I do hope whatever your plans might be you will always remain as safe as possible. If you think about it, it really isn’t that hard. We just have to practice everything experts have recommended. I know it is rather obnoxious, but it is important to do all we can!

As we are beginning our weekend and letting go of the past week, I think we may need a great quote. I do find the quote I am sharing today a nice reminder of the importance of letting go and living the best life we can! I would love to not only read how your week has been, but also what you think of the quote I shared. I hope it will help you let go of any negative emotions you may be experiencing. There does not seem to be any lack of negative in the world and we must try the best we can to not let it control us.

Thank you for visiting my site today. I do always appreciate your continued support and amazing comments! Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love, comfort, support, and many positive vibes!
