It’s Your Journey

It’s YOUR Life

Hello World

Have you ever been so shocked by someone else’s behavior that it truly made you feel like you weren’t sure if it was you or if it was them????? πŸ˜΅πŸ™„πŸ€”.

Well that’s exactly what I’ve been going through for the past week.. So much so that I had to take a break from social media to get my head back on straight and take a good look at the situation and process it fully… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”…

I’ve always been a people person as well as being very spontaneous yet had always worried about what others thought about what I was doing and about myself in general πŸ™„ πŸ˜©πŸ€”πŸ˜©..

It took me a loooonnnnggg time to not worry about what others thought about me, especially when it came to my doing what I needed to do for me and my peace of mind yet as we all look for a little validation, it totally threw me for a huge loop when someone I know (or should I say I thought I knew) stopped talking to me because I haven’t begun my journey in the bus yet! πŸ˜’πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

Not being sure if it was them or me because I don’t like disappointing people in general πŸ˜–

I have never been one that’s afraid of change and I don’t have any problem with being spontaneous .. Yet this is HUGE and being that I am embarking on this journey alone (something else I’ve never ever done) “I” need to know that all my ducks are in a row with the bus and with myself especially emotionally 😏

The journey in the bus is a huge huge huge life change for me and for the first time in my life I actually want to do it right in every manner.. 

Although it is taking me longer than even I anticipated.. I’m taking my time.. So that when I drive away I’ll know that everything with the bus is mechanically sound and that I am truly emotionally ready to begin my journey to heal from the loss of my son and begin MY new life πŸ™πŸ’—

What others may feel isn’t really relevant because this is my journey and however long it takes me to begin is OK.. 

It’s my journey to take when and only when…. 

I AM READY!!! πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

Author: Hello World Goodnight Universe

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible, even after the loss of a child, which to me is the most devastating life event ever... I know for I have and am prevailing each and every day. It isn't easy and there are days where I feel I cannot go on yet always know that You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

  1. Never forget Ricci that this is YOUR journey not anyone else’s!!! It has taken me almost 5 decades to reach the point where for the most part I don’t give a rat’s ass what people think of me. But sometimes that little bit of insecurity creeps in and I let other’s opinion darken my thoughts. I think that true wisdom – like what us 50+ ladies have – is when you can identify that the opinions of some is really their own dark thoughts and not yours. Let the clouds come, but watch for the sunlight that will shine through in no time!!! Love and hugs!!! ❀ ❀ ❀

    1. I thought being that I’m 58 I had gotten to that point too Tami cause 99% of the time I don’t care yet as you said.. Every once in a while that little bit of insecurity sneaks in.. (Grrrrrrrrrr lol) I’m way better today though hahaha.. Love you huge huge huge πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

  2. I think I’ve entered an age, … or a stage? … well one of those things … where I can smile sweetly at people who make me feel less than I know I am, but at the same time my brain is saying (quite loudly) “Oh Naff Off you pillock!” – mentally said in the poshest voice you can get your mind to use (think Princess Anne of the UK).

    This is your life. Your journey. Your change of direction. And YOU call the shots.
    Don’t allow anyone to tell you when you should begin.

    Think of it as a dance. You wouldn’t begin to dance until you heard the beat of the music. So don’t you let some busy body tell you that you have to dance when they say you should.

    Dance/Start your future, when YOU hear the beat of the music / beat of your heart, telling you to begin.

    I support you all the way Ricci. Whole heartedly.
    Sending you feel good vibes, love and squidges ~ Cobs. xxx

    1. Thank you Cobs πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ€— your words mean more to me than you may realise… πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ€— tears and giggles… tears because you truly helped and warmed my heart and giggles because I love England and know the slangs well haha my best friend is from Durham … πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

      It’s kinda ironic actually cause I thought I was at that age too being that I’m 58 and worked really hard to get to that place within.. Yet she donated largely to my campaign and it totally the me for a loop when she just stopped talking to me.. Yet I’m over it now.. Like you said.. It’s like a dance and when the music starts in my heart so will I πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’— love you huge my friend huge huge huge πŸ’—πŸ˜˜πŸ’—πŸ˜˜πŸ’—

        Sending love …. and, I whispered a prayer this morning for you Ricci, asking for His Angels to be sent forth to uplift you and keep your spirit bright.
