Don’t Take It For Granted
Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 💖🙏💖
The month of July is a very hard month for me…
Although the beginning of the month should bring me happy memories, knowing what happened at the end of the month makes it very hard for me to smile today 😢
July 4th, 2015 my son and I decided to get out of town and we went camping at one of our favorite places, Roosevelt Lake in the Tonto National Forest…
We explored Indian ruins, went swimming in the lake and saw 5 different fireworks shows from different cities because we hiked to a mountain top..
We had a wonderful 5 days, days that should make me happy, yet then I remember that on July 30th my son went on a different journey up in heaven.. 😢
I’m trying to learn how to carry this pain in a different way, where I can smile at the beautiful time we had on the 4th, yet it’s still very hard for me 😢
Yet even though my pain, today always reminds me of how many people don’t have the freedom that we do and I get so so grateful for what I do have..
2 other incredible children, friends that are amazing and a life where I can do whatever I please and that fills my heart with gratitude and love 💖🤗..
My point in all this is:
So many in our world don’t have the freedom that we do.. they cannot live a life where they can do whatever they want too…
Today is Independence Day and every day should be..a day that you are grateful to be alive and to be free! 🙏🙏
Happy 4th of July 💖
Because We Are All In This World Together
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 💖🙏💖..
💥BIG ANNOUNCEMENT SEE PICS💥
I’ve been approached by a few companies on Instagram that have asked me to be an ambassador for their company and products & up until now I have declined!
Mainly because for me to do it, I have to fully believe in the companies mission and products! 🤔😉
You all know that I don’t do shoutouts for anyone or anything I don’t believe in, that I’m a sticker queen and have dedicated the front and the whole back of my bus for stickers I love and especially stickers that have the same mindset and mission that I do…
ESPECIALLY cause I’ll be traveling all over the USA and I will not advertise any sticker and or company I don’t believe in!!😮
Well….A while back I started following @awakethesoul on Instagram.. I loved their name & mission so I got 2 of their t-shirts and 2 stickers and when I did I posted about it because the note they enclosed with the stuff I got touched my heart💓..
Well my friends… I’m an ambassador for them now WOO HOO and I’m honestly so excited…
10% of their sales go to supplying water to those in need and they do so much more for our environment and for our world!!!🌎🌲 And I am honored to be an ambassador for this amazing company!!! 🙏💖🙏.. http://www.awakethesoul.com My point in all this is:
We get so wrapped up in our own lives that we tend to forget about the world around us…
WE ARE ONE and We Are In This World Together!!!
So my friends don’t forget to take time to do something nice for a fellow human being…
Even if it’s just a warm hello and a gentle smile to brighten someones day…
We Are in this world together so AWAKE YOUR SOUL …
Kindness doesn’t cost a thing so if we all do our part…
We CAN make our home a better place!!!
All you have to do is AWAKE YOUR SOUL!!! 💖🙏🌎🙏💖..
Have a beautiful day world 💖🙏💖
It’s really not that hard
Hello My Friends 💖🤗💖🤗💖🤗💖🤗💖
Just sitting here playing with different apps because I want to share my journey with you once I get on the road…
My whole page will be changing to reflect the journey I’m about to embark on…
My poems will still be written by me yet the photos will be all mine, showing and reflecting where I am and my thoughts as always. 😊
The journey I’m about to embark on living in a bus, and traveling all over, is not only a new life, new chapter journey, it is also a healing journey, a journey to spread my son’s ashes at all the places we wanted to see..
While honoring him and finding me 😊
My hope is that my journey can help others that have lost a child know that they too can live, love and carry the pain in a different way, a way that doesn’t knock them on their ass like it did to me.
A learning too let go journey…
Not to forget…
But to LIVE…. 💖💖💖 …
Click on the video it’s actually kinda cute haha 😊😊😊
Don’t Forget To Show You Care
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗.
Yesterday was an amazing day for me…
My oldest and my soon to be daughter-in-law basically kidnapped me for a surprise date day 🤗💗🤗
They took me to a fairy festival, took me to lunch at an amazing Vietnamese restaurant, took me to the beach and then took me to dinner too…
It was an amazing day and a beautiful surprise 💗🤗
When we got back home, for some reason while I was sitting on my bed in the bus, I got really emotional and started crying..
I thought about my beautiful daughter in Arizona who I miss dearly and can’t wait to see this summer and I of course thought about my son Michael whose physical being I miss so very much😢
It made me think about how easily we forget to tell our family how much we love and appreciate them 🤔🙄
It’s so easy to compliment others and thank them for all we do.. Yet we forget to tell our family how much we love and appreciate them too…
So today I dedicate my post to my family and show them lots of love… And that also goes to my son that’s up in heaven above … Pics below⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇
So my friends don’t forget your family cause they are always there… Tell them that you love them & show them that you care ❤💗❤
Have a beautiful day world 💗
No Is A Complete Sentence
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
It took me a really long time to learn that NO is a complete sentence.. To understand that I shouldn’t feel guilty or have to give an explanation when saying no… And sometimes it’s still hard for me to say no ✋🚫🙅…
I totally get when we say no to children that they will pout or throw a fit cause they are still learning yet when an adult gets all butt hurt or gets pissed off when I say no to something.. That totally throws me for a loop… 😒🙄🤔…
There is nothing wrong with saying NO if what you’re being asked to do isn’t right for you… You don’t need to explain and you certainly shouldn’t feel guilty… Yet we tend too feel we need to explain, we feel guilty for saying no… Or the people we’re saying no to try to make you feel bad for saying it 🤔🤔🙄🙄…..
The people that respect your decision will smile and say okay.. The ones that don’t may get really mad & may even walk away… Yet don’t feel bad for saying no cause it’s a complete sentence too … Saying yes when you mean no isn’t good for them or you! 😉😉😉…
Have a beautiful day world ❤️
You Stop Believing In You
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
Remember when you were in school and had to take a test… Before you handed it in you went back and changed a couple answers you weren’t sure about only to get the test back and the first answer you picked was correct but you second guessed yourself so you wound up getting the answer wrong!!!
Yeah gotta love when we do that right lol lol… 😥😩…
Well for the past two days I was trying to figure out the best way to access my closet in the bus cause since I moved the bed, getting to my clothes was a tad difficult so instead of doing what I originally thought of I wound up rearranging everything only to wind up going right back to my original idea which totally wasted a whole day of work 😫😫..
I guess my point in all this is that we tend to second guess ourselves a lot and all we are really doing is not believing in ourselves… Not trusting in how we really feel in the first place 😒😩…
So my friends don’t second guess yourself cause what & how you feel in your heart is true… When you second guess yourself you stop believing in you!!! 😔😩😔…
Have a beautiful day world ❤️
Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗
The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE 💗🤗💗..
Except for a few touch-ups here and there, getting all the tape off and giving her a light wax… she’s now all pretty and shiny.. (See pics⬇⬇⬇)
When I first brought her home I was so on a mission to get everything done asap and truly thought I would be on the road in a couple months..
HAHAHAHA NOT 😏🙄
I was so busy focusing on the end result instead of focusing on each step one at a time that I always wound up backtracking 😩
Between the universe making me slow down or doing to much that I had know choice but to slow down and then of course changing my mind a few times, I felt like it was a never ending battle..😩
When I finally did slow down and decided to take one thing at a time, everything started falling into place and I can now honestly look back and smile because I took my time, changed my mindset and focused on one part at a time and the rewards are on point…
I’m so happy with how she looks inside and out and now all that’s left is getting the new tires put on and hooking up the solar 🤗😁 …
We get so caught up in the “I want it now!” mindset that we do tend to miss the steps in between and for every step forward we wind up taking a step or two back..
So my friends take your time when pursuing your dreams…
Dreams don’t have an expiration date and it’s so much better to slow down and take your time then to wind up backtracking cause you moved so fast that you missed a bunch of steps along the way…
As they say…
It’s not really about the end result is about the journey along the way 🤗💗
So happy with the results 🤗🤗🤗
Have a beautifully slow Sunday 💗
