Motivational Monday

Fightmsdaily

Welcome back, Monday, I cannot say you were missed! I know most of us never look forward to the workweek starting again, but let’s try to view today as an opportunity for success! It is better to view days we dread in a positive light, instead of a negative one. We know we are never able to avoid Monday or the workweek beginning, so why should we waste time thinking negatively? Believe me, I know the weekend was way too short, but at least we were able to enjoy a few days away from work! I do hope you were able to enjoy the weekend and that you are as ready as you can be for the week to start!

I do believe we should try to begin the week with the best mindset possible! I also think it is important to not just be on Monday, but every day…

Sunday Thoughts

Fightmsdaily

Happy Sunday to y’all! I do love Sunday, but it is a little sad because it means tomorrow is Monday and the start of another workweek. I do wish the weekends were longer, but even when we have a long weekend it is still hard to be forced to start another workweek! The only thing we can do is, enjoy the weekend to the fullest and think with a positive mindset. I do believe there is the power of our minds and think it is much more powerful than we realize. Do you think we can almost believe things into existence? Do you believe that our prayers are the power of our minds or something from another dimension?

How has your weekend been? My weekend has been rather quiet and relaxing, which was something I needed after last week. I have used this weekend to decide between two different topics…

What a long week?

Fightmsdaily

How do you enjoy spending the first day of the weekend? I prefer to use Saturday as a day to“TRY”to sleep in and get some much-needed rest after a painfullyLONGweek! I might try doing some cleaning today, but I might hold off until tomorrow. Even though between my sweet and loveable cats and my annoying habits of getting up at the same time daily, I will not sleep past my normal time. I do hope that I will be able to binge-watch one of my favorite shows, Law & Order Special Victims Unit, and considering I have seen every episode at least four times sleep on and off during the day. Many people do not understand why I love this show as much as I do because it is about sex crimes, but this shows is the only time I am able to see actual justice…

Let It Go Friday

Fightmsdaily

Guess what y’all, it is finally Friday!! I am sure I am not the only one that feels this way, but this week felt SO LONG! I know it was the same five days that each week is, but it felt much longer. Of course, it does not help that I was ready for Friday on Monday morning😊! The weather where I live was very messy yesterday. It rained all day, which made it appear darker than normal and a little chilly. Thankfully, I think the weekend is going to be a little nicer and hopefully, there will not be any rain! Even though the rain makes me hurt much worse, I would almost prefer it to rain on my days off because it gives me a reason to just stay nice and cozy on the couch with the cats!

After a week that felt super long, I think…

Law Enforcement violence

Fightmsdaily

I am sure that my question will be slightly controversial, but we all have and should have questions about the world and our lives. What exactly is the sole purpose of law enforcement “supposed” to be? I think it is normal to be nervous and even scared when we are pulled over, but NO ONE should ever fear for their lives. It should NOT matter the color of someone’s skin for how they are treated by the police, but unfortunately, it seems to play a HUGE factor in the treatment of an individual. Has this ever made sense to you because it as NOT and NEVER will make sense to me. I have said this before, but it still stands, it is now 2023 and we all should have evolved much more and instead too many continue to devolve at grossly rapid levels.

I must say that surviving the most dreaded day of the week deserves praise and congratulations😊! Monday is never very exciting, but I do hope it was not too bad for y’all!

I think it is just difficult to let go of the weekend when we can relax and not wake up to an alarm clock. Anything we were not able to get done yesterday, we have another chance today! Unfortunately, today I get to drive on the worst road in the world to go to my routine follow-up appointment. These appointments are useless because nothing ever changes!

Hello again, Monday! It is crazy how quickly the weekends fly by because it feels like it was just Friday not too long ago. I guess this is just something that happens every week, and we should consider ourselves lucky to have another opportunity with a new week. I hope this week holds many wonderful opportunities for all of you and you will not let anyone or anything get in your way of achieving greatness!

My Sunday Thoughts

Happy Sunday, y’all! I hope you have had an enjoyable and relaxing week. Unfortunately, the weekend is nearing its end and it will be time to prepare for the new week soon. Why does it feel like it was Friday only 30 minutes ago, and we were excited about the week? The workweeks can be painfully long, and the weekends are always way too short, which seems unfair. I wish there was a way to flip-flop how the weeks were and we had at least four days off in a row and work the other three days but no more than 6 hours. Every company always “preaches” how they believe in providing work-life balance for their employees, but I am not sure how anyone is getting work-life balance when we are working more than when we are home with family.

Anyone who must work five days in a row can understand how exhausting it can be. Even though I work from home, being forced to sit in front of a computer for eight LONG hours is draining, but when you add in listening to people complain it makes it feel even LONGER!

I know that is a silly question because most of us look forward to the weekend on Monday morning or at least I know I do. Working from home is a great experience and I have a handful of co-workers who are amazing to work with. It is crazy how close you can become with someone you have never met before just through numerous conversations.

I always prefer to think of today as Friday eve because it sounds much better than Thursday! How has your week been? For some reason, even though it has not been a super busy week, it has felt incredibly long. Life can be so exhausting because it seems like someone always needs something or someone feels the need to complain. I am not sure what people think complaining is going to accomplish, except drive others crazy. Maybe that is their goal or maybe they just like to hear their voice. No matter what I go through in life, I do try to never complain because it does nothing positive!

We have managed to make it through most of this week and only have one final day to survive because the weekend returns! I think we could all use a little pick-me-up to get through one more day, which hopefully, will…

Continued Gun Violence

We are only 25 days into 2023 and as of yesterday, there have already been 39 mass shootings in the United States that have caused 70 innocent people to lose their lives. These tragedies doNOToccur in any other developed country because other countries have found a way to prevent unnecessary gun violence. These continued acts of hatred do not make any sense to me, and I have many questions that I am not sure anyone can answer. The first question is why can the United States not find a rational solution and end gun violence? How many more people will need to die before changes will be made? The 2nd Amendment was written in 1791, but did they mean they thought everyone should carry a weapon? I think we need to face the fact; the 2nd Amendment needs to be updated so that the mass population stops misinterpreting…

The good news is we somehow managed to survive Monday, which tends to be the most challenging day of the week! Yesterday, was much busier than it has been for a few weeks now. More work meant there were many more customers who thought their orders and problems were the MOST important. Thankfully, I am good at providing good customer service and giving them my undivided attention. It does help that I have friends in the other departments that can help resolve issues quickly and seamlessly! I only wish that everyone I deal with did things the same way because my dentist still has not spoken to me about the issues I have been dealing with since my tooth extraction.

One thing I would like to try and continue to do is to live each day as if it were my last because the sad truth is, it could be.

It can be easy to get discouraged in this life, but it is wonderful to have family, friends, and co-workers to make it a little easier to tolerate. Even though work has been rather slow, I try to help my co-workers because I value them and want to help them keep things on track, and so they do not feel overwhelmed.

We survived this week and can now enjoy the weekend! How was your week? Mine was spent dealing with my least favorite kind of doctor, the dentist. I went to one earlier in the week because she was right around the corner, but she was anything but helpful. Not only was she not helpful, but she also lied. First, she told me that she was unable to pull my tooth and she needed to send me to an oral surgeon, and she also said the tooth was not infected. None of this made sense to me because my husband had a tooth pulled that was even worse than mine.

Do people really think their way of life and how they behave is much superior to everyone else in the world?

It is not a weakness when someone admits they are struggling mentally and makes the decision to seek mental health help, but instead, I think it shows signs of strength and courage.

Although our first reaction to negative situations is to try forgetting them because they were traumatic and caused emotional pain and anxiety.

In this post, I am going to explain what consideration means and why it is an important practice to learn and include in our daily lives.

To be considerate means must be thoughtful or have sympathetic regard or respect and thoughtfulness for others. It is careful thoughts, normally over some time. This can be related to simply remembering the “Golden Rule”. We all know how we want to be treated and it should be easy to implement that same…

It is finally Friday!

Fightmsdaily

Happy Friday y’all! How was your week? I am not sure why, but this week felt incrediblyLONGand I am so glad the weekend is almost here! It seems like the closer we get to the holidays, the crazier people become and it does not make sense to me. The insanity is exhausting and I think everyone needs to calm down and relax. The things some people think are so important and urgent are most of the time not that big of a deal. I find it a little disturbing that people think they need to spendLOADSof money on Christmas when there are still so many people starving and without a roof over their heads at night. I have already made several blankets that I am going to be donating to homeless shelters to try to help keep people warm when the temperatures are cold. I am…

Appointment Update and other thoughts

Fightmsdaily

I was unusually nervous about my appointment today with the Neurologist. I always worry they are going to give me the bad news and that the MS is progressing. It is always something that weighs on my mind and remains in the back of my mind. I know it is irrational, but it is a concern that I live with. Thankfully, the appointment went well, and the PA does not think the MS is progressing. She understands that the issues I am experiencing are worse than they have been, but it is something we will be working on. There is another medication she would like for me to try to help the neuropathy pain, but I am not sure I am completely comfortable with it. She also mentioned a therapy that might help with the increased dizziness I have been dealing with as well.

The medication the PA would like…

Inspirational Wednesday

Fightmsdaily

We have successfully made it through the first part of this week, so we just have the other half left until the weekend returns. How has your week been so far? The way I view things is, if we survived the first part of the week, the second half should be a breeze😊! My week has not been too terrible, and work has been a little slow. The good thing about my job must be the great people I work with. Of course, I have never met any of them in person, but I have made some good friends by getting to know them through email and chats. Most of the people that I work with, I would have loved to work within an office setting!

This morning I must go to my dreaded appointment with my neurologist. I know the Nurse Practitioner means well and so does the doctor…

Motivational Monday

Fightmsdaily

Welcome back to the beginning of a new week! The weekends are always way too short, but each week brings us new and amazing opportunities. How was your weekend? My weekend was uneventful and peaceful, which was nice. I did even get to sleep in a little on Saturday and the rest of the weekend I just took things slow. Sunday is always my day to get things done and I prefer to relax and rest on Saturday. I also spent a lot of time with our three cats, and there was rarely a time I did not have at least one of them on my lap.

As we have to say our goodbyes to the weekend and start a new week, which might feel long, we all need to find a way to stay motivated. I decided to share this quote with y’all today because I think we can…

Emotional Strength

Fightmsdaily

Strengths we have that can benefit our lives moving forward have nothing to do with our physical strength. It does not matter how much you can lift or carry because the important type of strength is emotional strength. Strong, stable, and healthy emotional strength works as our compass for discovering personal and career success. Just like any other skill, to be able to enjoy all the benefits of emotional strength we must concentrate on the development of this powerful and incredibly beneficial skill.

Those who were emotionally strong can distinguish the difference between what they can and cannot control, and do not waste precious time on what is beyond their control. Emotionally strong people do not give up if they fail, but stand back up, brush themselves off, and try again. Emotionally strong people do not feel resentment when someone else succeeds but will rejoice in others’ success and view…

Let It Go Friday

Fightmsdaily

Finally, happy Friday y’all! I hope you have had a good week, but are looking forward to the weekend! I am definitely looking forward to a weekend I do not have any plans or anything I must do besides laundry! This might sound insane, but I enjoy doing laundry, but absolutely despise cleaning a bathroom or to be more specific despise cleaning a tub! I think the worst part of cleaning a tub is the fact there is too much space to cover and the smells from the cleaners make me nauseous and slightly dizzy! I know it seems like it would make sense to leave the bathroom door open while cleaning the tub, but I am unable to do this because of our cats and one of them has asthma.

As today is the last day of the week and the weekend will begin soon, so now is the…

The Golden Rule

Fightmsdaily

I find all the violence and hate we witness daily extremely sad and disturbing. When is the last time you could watch the news or read an article about world news and not see or read about another act of violence? I try to avoid the news because it is very depressing, but I will click on news apps and constantly read about tragic violent acts that have occurred. I think I need to refrain from doing this from now on or at least until people can learn to be kind to one another.

Something I have always held close to my heart and mind is the meaning of the Golden Rule. The real and easy-to-understand meaning of the Golden Rule is it is the principle of treating others the way you want to be treated. This seems like it should be common and easy practice to follow. We all…

Pick-Me-Up Thursday

Fightmsdaily

Happy Friday Eve y’all! I hope you are having a good week. I was unable to do a post the past few days because I was battling with a nagging headache that refused to go away. It started to worry me a little because I read about a new variant of COVID which is causing headaches and body aches. I typically do not worry much with headaches or body pains because I deal with them SO often, but after seeing there is a new COVID variant that is bypassing the vaccine, I worried a little. Thankfully, after three days of pure misery, I am finally starting to feel a little better.

This week has been painful because of the nagging headache I was dealing with, but this week is nearly over now. Of course, we do have a couple of days left before the weekend returns and I think we…

Sunday Thoughts

Fightmsdaily

Hello Sunday! How do you prefer to spend your Sunday, knowing that this is the last day before the work week begins again? Many people think that Sunday is a day for rest, but I prefer to rest on Saturday and get things done on Sunday because it prepares my mind for the work week ahead. Of course, my mind appears to be on a set schedule that never changes because I get up at the same time everyday, even though I want to sleep in more than I could ever explain. Since the time change, my internal clock seems broken because I still wake up an hour early, which is so frustrating!

Life is filled with various challenges that sometimes we may not feel prepared for, but we find a way to manage and carry on! None of us asked for what we encounter in life and often we…
