Pick Me Up Thursday!

132811-It-s-Almost-FridayGood morning y’all and Happy Friday Eve! I hope your week has been very pleasant and you are feeling well. I think most of us tend to push ourselves beyond what are limits are, I know I sure do. It has been said that adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep each night, but do many people actually get this? I know that I do not normally get anywhere near 7 hours of sleep most nights, but more like 5 hours. Honestly, I do start to notice a little change in my memory and normal daily functions towards the end of the week. On a normal day my memory isn’t perfect, but after 3 to 5 nights of only getting 5 hours of sleep my memory pilpurrs-day-happy-friday-eve-lovely-friends-we-_3-you-6662413gets a lot worse!

Thankfully we are almost at the end of the week and can start to look forward to the weekend ahead of us! I am happy to say that I do not work this weekend and pretty much do not have any  plans at all!

I have been working on 3 posts that I am really looking forward to and should be able to finish them by Sunday. I will give you a little preview of what I am working on. October is both Domestic Violence Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness month and I am going to be sharing some very valuable and important information about both. I also plan to complete my post about sleep and  what is and isn’t healthy about are sleep patterns. 

I found the quote I am sharing with y’all today a few weeks ago, but I was waiting for the right time to share it. I hope you will find this quote to be a nice pick me up and it will get you through one more day of the week!your not going to master

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today!  I am really looking forward to reading what you think about the quote I have shared with you today. Not only do I promise to respond to your comment and get a little more caught up on things in the blogging community as soon as I possibly can. I appreciate you having patience with me as I try catching up on things in the blogging community. I hope you have a wonderful day and you are feeling the best you can. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

0e4599cc55a2fec5a47315b3f4beaf12Good morning and happy Monday y’all! I hope y’all had a lovely weekend and you are ready to start a new week! My weekend was pretty much non-existent because I had to work, which was very busy and frustrating. Between Friday and Sunday afternoon I don’t think I have ever been yelled at so many times for things I have absolutely NO control over and sure as hell didn’t cause! However, even after being yelled at many times, I understand why the residents were as frustrated as they were and I would have been just angry!

I am ready as ever to start this new week off great and with a positive frame of mind. I do believe that thinking of all the negative that can and probably does happen in life will only ruin any great times that occur in between. I discovered a quote that I think is really quite fabulous and I do hope you will as well! stand alone

I am the type of person that would rather stand all alone rather than join a crowd of others that believe a lot different than I do. I have my own beliefs in all aspects of life including politics, religion, life choices, how to handle difficult situations and many more and I can respect other’s thoughts. Standing alone holding onto your own beliefs isn’t easy, but it does make you a stronger person that doesn’t sell your soul just to fit in. fitting-in.jpg

First, I want to thank y’all for stopping by my site today. I do always appreciate your continued support and excellent comments. I missed my Motivational Monday post last week because I was on vacation, but it feels good to be back on track! I hope you have a wonderful start to the week and your week only gets better moving forward. Please know that no matter what I might deal with, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and positive vibes!

Been a while

Featured

Catching-Up-and-My-Favorite-ThingsWOW, it feels like it has been forever since I did anything in the blogging community! While I was on my much needed vacation with my husband last week, I took a short break from doing anything involving a computer. The two of us went to my happy place, the BEACH, not only to celebrate my birthday, but also our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤. We had an amazing time together and had absolutely beautiful weather! It was so great being far away from the stresses of work and be able to just sit back listening to the ocean waves! I honestly find the sight and sounds of the ocean 🌊, while reading a great book to be the best way to relax and refresh!

I am very far behind on reading all of your posts, which I already know are fantastic. its-been-a-whileUnfortunately, I do have to work the weekend so I can’t say I will be able to catch up, but I will still try.

Considering I have been away for almost 2 weeks now, how have y’all been doing? I hope you are feeling well and your month has started off great! October is beautiful and my favorite month, which I am not just saying that because it is the month I was married in. I have always enjoyed the change in weather during October. Normally it isn’t too hot and not that cold, it is just right! Sounds kind of like Goldilocks and the Three Bears, but yet so true! Of course the southern states are not always on the same page with my thought process and it was in the high 90’s ☀ for the first week of October, but thankfully over the weekend the temperatures are going to drop! It is crazy though because when I say the temperatures are going to drop, I mean drop more than 20 degrees in one day!

Like I already stated, my husband and I had a wonderful vacation. Of course it wasn’t long c620x376enough and it was painful to return to work. The insane thing is we didn’t get home until the early morning hours and I had to work that day. I was so exhausted; nothing bothered me at all because my mind was still at the beach and maybe I was half asleep still. Of course things not bothering me only lasted half a day and I will tell you more about this later. My boss is still the same idiot he has always been!

For my birthday we had a lovely dinner at a restaurant that was oceanfront 🌊! vacation and celebrationConsidering we were at the beach during the off season it wasn’t overly crowded, which was great! Thankfully my husband did not tell the waitress it was my birthday, so I didn’t have to deal with the wait staff singing happy birthday to me and embarrassing me. I do not like to be center of attention and would prefer to go unnoticed! 

The day after my birthday we went to another oceanfront restaurant to celebrate our 8 year wedding anniversary ❤! Back to back celebrations were nice and peaceful! It is so hard to believe we have already been married for 8 years ❤, I mean where does the time go? I still remember the day my husband proposed like it was yesterday and that was 9 years ago!

Sunrise at the beachI don’t know about you, but before last week there were times I was awake at sunrise, but never actually watched the sunrise. Standing out on the beach in the early morning hours watching the sun come up was a beautiful sight and pretty powerful! It really is amazing to watch as the sun slowly makes its way up to shine light on us all around the world! To think the sun I watched come up will also be seen on the other side of the world at some point. 

The weather was so clear we were even able to watch the sunset! The sun sets slowly over sunset at the beachthe horizons and it is quite magical, especially near the ocean! Of course I do think everything is magical and hypnotizing when I am at the beach!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend and you are able to enjoy every moment of it. I will be back to my normal routine next week and maybe even some extra surprises. I want to thank you for stopping by my site today and please know that I always appreciate your comments. Please never forget that no matter how busy I am, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Motivational Monday!

0e4599cc55a2fec5a47315b3f4beaf12Good morning y’all and happy Monday ☀! I hope y’all had a great weekend and you are ready to tackle yet again a new week! I worked over the weekend, but it was actually a good weekend! Since I have worked at the apartment community, Saturday was the best day I have had yet, which is saying something. Most days at work are not all that great and even rather frustrating, but I was on my own, super busy and on fire! It doesn’t matter one bit if things went so well over the weekend because my mind is stuck on our upcoming ☀ vacation ☀ or if things will be getting better at my job, all that matters is I had a rather pleasant 58b0f1c7256c4a126d1ddff462805279--inspirational-monday-quotes-happy-monday-quotesweekend!

Are y’all ready for the new week? Thinking on a positive side, I think it is going to be a fantastic week for all of us 🌸. I have always strongly believed that a positive outlook will only create very positive outcomes 🌈, so let us all find this a good way to think! Unfortunately, it does seem like that many people are very quick to judge others based on ignorant thoughts. As I have gotten older I have figured out that those that judge negatively really do not matter much at all and they are probably just unhappy with their own lives. This is where the quote I am sharing with y’all today comes from and I hope this is something you will try to keep in your mind always!people don't matter

Thank you so much for stopping by my site today. I hope the quote I have shared with y’all today will keep you motivated! Never allow anyone’s negative judgments to discourage or make you feel bad because YOU are way better than that! I hope you have a wonderful start to a fabulous week! Please remember that I am always sending y’all LOTS of  love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

Your dreams can become reality!

Turn-Your-Dreams-Into-Reality-lSo often we will sit daydreaming about random things. Sadly, we often feel that our precious dreams are unreachable because they seem so outlandish. In hindsight, anything is possible with enough determination and courage.

What is something you have dreamt about for as long as you can remember? Have you ever thought about the steps you couldyour reality take to make that dream your reality? Of those dreams you hold onto, has any of them come true? Or if some of these dreams never made it to reality yet, do you know why?

Something I have dreamt about and wanted for so many years is to be able to write a book, but I still have yet to accomplish this. I have asked myself time and time again why something I want so badly hasn’t come into fruition. Honestly the only answer I can come up with is I discourage myself with thoughts like I am not good enough or I can’t do it. Those negative thoughts have held me train-your-mind-to-seeback for way too many years and I am going to start fighting against them! I really want to make my dreams come true and I know in my heart I will.

Most of the time I think we are often our own worst enemy in life. I can say without any doubt or hesitation that I am my biggest and hardest critic. How do you get past this in life? How do you look past your own criticism and start Simple Pbelieving in yourself? Training your mind to know your strengths and using them is not easy, but it must be doable because look at how many others do achieve their goals.

When you take a step back and look at your life the way it is currently, are you living the life you want and are you happy? Are you proud of what you have accomplished? Are you able to enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer? Personally, I like living a calm and drama free life style. I know there are many out there that enjoy having conflicts and constant issues because that makes them image-752575feel excited for some reason. I will never understand that frame of mind. I told someone the other day the only drama I like is General Hospital because that isn’t real! I think all drama brings to life is stress and pain! I also think that those of us living with a chronic illness already have enough to deal with and anything else is just unnecessary!

This post was just to share things with y’all that I was pondering and wanted to be able to read your thoughts about images (7)daydreaming and turning dreams into reality. I enjoy sharing my thoughts with you and then reading your comments because they are always amazing. 

Thank you so much for visiting my site today! I do appreciate your continued support! I hope y’all have enjoyed your weekend and you are feeling the best you possibly can. Please know that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort, and many positive vibes!

My plans for the weekend are anything but exciting because I will be working. The only good thing about working the weekend and 7 days in a row is something I already mentioned, my husband and I are going on a much needed vacation next week! 

What do you think, are you ready for a pick mehqdefault (1) up quote? I know I could use a little pick me up because it has been a challenging week for me. Between working too many days in a row, ridiculously hot weather in the middle of September, the a/c in my car not blowing cold air when it is so damn hot, searching for another job because mine has been hell, my favorite co-worker leaving , and nothing but bad news coming my way a little pick me up would be incredibly beneficial! The quote I am sharing with y’all today is very meaningful and also a friendly reminder!vsy__on_pinterest__rela

Motivational Monday!

new-monday-new-week-motivational-gym-quotesGood morning y’all! I hope you had a lovely weekend and your week starts off well. I am proud to say that I did not do all that much over the weekend and allowed myself to actually rest! I think the rest I was able to get has helped me feel a little better. I had been experiencing sleep problems and only was getting 2 or 3 hours of sleep at the end of last week. It was awful and I have no idea why I wasn’t able to sleep, but at least I did get rest and even slept in one of the weekend days. 

This week is going to be rather challenging for me with my work schedule. I am working 8 days in a row, but it is busybecause of a much deserved vacation next week. My husband and I am going to get away for a few days to celebrate my birthday and our 8 year wedding anniversary! I am so excited about our upcoming vacation and think it will do us both some good!!

I think most days we all deal with at least one challenge, but we all handle things the best we can. I think the quote I am sharing with y’all today has a lot of motivation to help get the week started off on the right foot!quote-inner-power-giant-today

Thank you so much for visiting my site today.  I hope the quote I have shared with y’all has given you some strength and motivation for the week ahead. All of us have so much you-are-amazing-with-a-side-of-sprinklespower inside that we also forget about, try to remind yourself at least once a day how amazing you are!

I hope you have a wonderful day and your week only continues to get better. Please never forget that I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, compassion, and many positive vibes!
