A story of life, love, healing & growing
We all have a story, some easy, some hard, some happy, some sad. Yet each unique and beautiful in it’s own way.
Today I begin to tell my story. A story of life, healing, motivation and inspiration… A story of friends, family and every day life. A story of strength to keep going after being told I couldn’t. A story of devastating losses and a story of love. A life story, a healing story… My journey to heal and my journey to live…
My journey begins now!
The last few days I’ve been writing a lot about confidence, doubt and believing and tonight as I was writing this I realized that what I write about is truly about what I’m going through at that moment myself🤔🙄
I write so much about what my friends and other people are going through, trying to help others smile and believe, that It didn’t really hit me until tonight as I was walking out of the bus that all the work I’ve been doing on the bus and especially my writing ARE the steps for my journey too..
My journey to find courage within. My journey to heal from losing my son, my journey to live and learn to let go, my journey to not forget..To have peace within my heart and to live my dream and his and omg… 😮 I’m living it 😱😱
Tonight I’m living a wow moment… A omg moment… A shake my head REALLY moment?? and as optimistic, confident and positive of a person as I am… I too go through moments of doubt, fear and lose courage and even lack confidence and have moments of disbelief yet in my heart I never lost hope, I never stopped believing and I now know without a doubt that believing is the key to living and the key to your dreams.. Always believe no matter what my friends, cause believing is what makes dreams come true!!! 💗🙏💗
Goodnight Universe 🌠Goodnight My Friends 🌠💗🌠
Just Take It Step By Step
Challenges whether new or old can really stress you out… Yet stressing out does nothing but bringing up more doubt 🤔🙄.
So don’t worry about the end result just do the steps one by one and know that everything will work out and you will get it done! 😃😀😃😀😃
Yesterday figuring out the fresh water tank was easy as can be but figuring out where to drain the water was getting the the best of me… So I decided to take a break to look at it a different way and just when I stopped worrying about it I woke up with the answer today… 😉🙃😉.
I sometimes get so wrapped up inside my head that I sometimes cannot see.. The answer that I was looking for was right in front of me. 😌🙄😒😏
Moral of this story… Sometimes we look so far ahead that we wind up wasting time so take a break and a couple steps back and things will fall in line!
Have a beautiful day world 🌻♥
Today was a very emotional and somewhat overwhelming day… I wish I could show you all the text I received from someone I met on IG through my writing…I’ve never met her personally yet when she needed someone to talk to I was there, not because I had too and not for any other reason other than she needed a shoulder, an ear and to hear that it’s ok to feel, it’s ok to be sad and it’s ok to cry A LOT.. cause crying cleanses the soul and one day laughter will heal it … And the text I received today out of the blue was from her reminding me of our talk and how much it helped her through a very trying time in her life… ❤
My point in saying this is to remind everyone that kindness matters so much… Sometimes just an ear to listen or a shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on is all someone needs and it can truly change someones life… 🙏❤🙏
There is so much hate and cruelty in the world today… BE that friend, be that person, be that shoulder or ear… Not because you have to.. Because you care and because our world desperately needs it…and one day so may you!!! It truly is through kindness and love that one by one we WILL change our world!!!
Much love, kindness and peace to you all
This morning while I was drinking my morning cup of coffee, I starting thinking about the difference between KNOWING that we can do something and THINKING that we can 🤔🤔🤔 and there actually is a difference between the two…🙄🤔🙄…
Our minds can play tricks on us and when you think we can do something and we go to try to do it. Our minds can put doubt in there and it can halt us in our tracks… When we KNOW we can do something we have the confidence to actually go out and do it without any doubts or fears…. 🤔🙄.
Yes HOW and WHAT we think about ourselves and the things we do is extremely important because we are what we think we are… Yet it all boils down to CONFIDENCE… Confidence in WHO we are and CONFIDENCE in WHAT we do… 😁😁.
SOOOOOOOO today be confident in what you’re doing and in who you are… Because once you have the confidence to do and to BE.. Nothing can get in your way…💪🙋💪.
Working on and having running water in the bus again and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and I’m my bio for anyone that can help or please share the link so I can make the goal of being on the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. 🤗❤🤗 Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful ❤🙏❤… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! 🤗🌻🤗…
Moments Turn Into Memories
Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… 🤔😱🙄😡😢😨❤
The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing 😁🤗😁🤗😁…
I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain 🤔 🙄. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good 🤗😁🤗😁🤗 and that is an amazing feeling ❤🙏❤
Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life…
Goodnight Universe ❤🌻❤
Take Charge Of How You Feel
This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too 🤔.
We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come 🙄🙄….
So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact 😁🤗😁🤗😁.
Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. 🤗❤🤗 Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful ❤🙏❤… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! 🤗🌻🤗
Everyone and Everything Is Unique
Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. 🌻🌧🌻…
I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal🌧🌻.
The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. 🌻🌎
So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around 🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻🤗🌻
Have a beYOUtiful day world 🌻🌍
