Don’t Listen To That Negative Voice

That Sits Up In Your Head

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past weekend it literally rained non stop which of course prevented me from doing a few things I need to get done on the outside of the bus and also gave me way too much time in my head thinking about things I could change or things I could’ve done better πŸ€” πŸ™„πŸ˜«

We all have that little critic in our head that tries to tell us we’re not good enough or that things that we do aren’t right and it can be very strong at times and can put up a hell of a fight…

Yet this past weekend I actually caught that little devil trying to fill my head with doubts and so instead of letting it win I turned it around by looking at what the bus looked like when I got it and what it looks like today and WOW what a difference (SEE BELOW ➑ BEFORE & AFTER PIC)

So my friends…

Don’t ever let that negative critic tell you what to do… Cause more than half the time it’s wrong and says things that are not true… Practice staying positive no matter what you do… Cause positivity always pushes negativity away from you!! πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Stay positive world πŸ’—

Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything πŸ€”…

So I want you all to do me a favor…😁

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

Have a beautiful weekend my friends πŸ’—πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—…

Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???πŸ€”

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😡 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..πŸ˜•

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Always Be True

To You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I’ve never been one to sugar coat anything and have actually been told I can be brutally honest sometimes yet for me I’d rather have someone tell me the outright truth even if I may not want to hear it then to sugar coat or patronize me πŸ™„

Well…

Yesterday I got a tad hard on the mom of the little boy I babysit…

ok not a tad… I did let her have it…

And afterwards I thought oops maybe that was a little harsh… And just as I went to apologize to her for being so harsh.. She came up to me, gave me a big hug and thanked me for basically calling her on her shit… Then proceeded to tell me that’s why she loves me so much 😱

It made me take a look at myself and actually made me smile because looking back I realized I’ve always been this way… It’s just who I am πŸ˜‰

We always tend to be harder on ourselves and although I’ve made bad choices throughout my life, have been hurt and have hurt, have trusted the wrong people, have given, been taken from and have made lots of mistakes…

The bottom line is….

I’m me…

And honestly I wouldn’t change a thing…πŸ™„

It’s taken me a long time to like…No to love who I am and to embrace my good and bad sides…To accept who I am and make changes when necessary… And I’m ok with who I am today 😁

I guess my point is…

Learn to love who you are and to embrace all that you are…

If there’s something you don’t like within yourself…

Change it…

Just remember YOU ARE YOU and don’t change for anyone.. except you..

Just always be true to YOU πŸ’—

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road 😯…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me 😒 ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok 😒😒..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Don’t Ever Take Your Anger

Out On Someone Else

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I wasn’t going to post today but I just experienced something really cool that we don’t get to see to often 😱 I was picking up a few things at my least favorite store yet the only one in the little town I’m in, and as I was walking up to the register I overheard a very nasty customer screaming at the cashier… 😠

It was very obvious that the poor cashier couldn’t do anything about an item that was out of stock, yet the customer did and said everything nasty that she could to try to get the cashier upset and make it out to be her fault..😱..

Yet the cashier kept calm and didn’t even make a face at the nasty person…😏

Just as I got to the end of the line, a lady and gentlemen walked up to the nasty customer and said…

“It’s not her fault they are out of stock and you have no right to take your anger out on her. If you have a problem take it up with management, but do not scream at this girl.. she is just doing her job and has no control of what is in or out of stock.. So take your anger elsewhere because none of us want to hear it and she doesn’t deserve to be treated like that by you or anyone!!!” 😠

It was so cool and everyone in line started clapping!!! Needless to say the nasty customer left in a hurry and in a huff… 😁

The cashier was amazing and no matter what was being said kept her cool and gave the rest of us exceptional service with a smile like nothing happened at allπŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜

There’s lots of things that happen that make us want to scream but don’t take your anger out on others or treat another mean.. so when something yucky happens remember this quote too…

“Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you!!😏😁😏

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Give Yourself Permission

To Do Whatever You Want To Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a list of things I wanted to do and had all intentions of posting my Hello World post… πŸ™„πŸ€”

Yet after I made my coffee I decided I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing and so I didn’t πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€

Around noon I started feeling a tad guilty for being totally lazy, knowing I had plenty of stuff I could be doing and that’s when it hit me!!😱

Why the hell should I feel guilty for wanting to sit on my ass and not do a thing?

Did I have any pressing things that really needed to get done that day?

NO…

Was my sitting on my ass preventing someone else from getting something done?

NO…

So why did I feel guilty for wanting to have a do nothing day? πŸ€”

It’s because we are programmed to go go go, do do do and not stop till we get stuff done!!!

SOOOOO NOT OKAY!!! 😠😠😠

Our bodies and our mind need relaxing and playtime too.. Don’t allow your head to make you feel guilty when you want to… Give yourself permission to relax or to play..Remember you are worth having a do whatever you want too day πŸ˜€

Have a fantabulous do whatever you want to day πŸ’—
