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 🌻🌍
Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 I’ve been working so hard on the bus and not taking breaks that this morning I woke up tired and stressed out a little 🤔🙄🤔🙄 and if course this poem came to mind… 🙄🤔🙄.
We all want to give 110% yet we can’t do that all day long… Cause when we try to do so, we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. 😡🙄😡…
So learn to take a break from things… You don’t have to quit.. just know it’s okay to take a break and rest a little bit…😁🤗😁.
So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… So I decided that since it will be like a steam room inside the bus, I’m gonna take a break today and wash the outside cause it needs it badly and I’ll get to play with the water hose hahaha… I definitely need to get the electricity situated inside and now only need $384 to have everything I need, the inverter, batteries and solar kit to run the fridge and the fans, lights at night and a few other things.. my gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help…
I’m so very close and am so grateful for all the love and support from everyone…
Much love to you all and have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻
I have been a busy lady getting the bus all ready… Yet if course the window privacy panels were driving me insane cause no matter what they did not wanna stick to the vinyl along the windows unless I wanted to use crazy glue which would have defeated the purpose of me bringing able to take the up and down… SOOOOOOOO I changed them yet again.. Lol lol… There’s a before and after pic and OMG I am now loving them ❤❤….
That’s what made me think of this poem…I was feeling like I doing the same thing I’ve and over again Déjà Vu big-time and remembered a friend telling me about Vujà Dé … Which means seeing something familiar yet looking at it in a completely different way… Hence the changing of the window panels woo hoo hahaha 🤗😁🤗
I also put in the fridge (see pic) so the kitchen is almost done which I’m really happy about and once that’s done, within a few days I’ll put down the rest of the flooring and then other than the inside electricity I’ll almost ready to hit the road for the Keys to go help clean up 😁❤😁
Hurricane Irma really messed up a ton of cell towers and internet lines so my service has been really spuradic hence my not being here as often, yet I wanted to stop in and say HELLO WORLD while I had the chance to say everything is moving along nicely… I’m down to only needing $424 to complete the inside electricity and my gofundme link is still active and below if anyone can help… ❤😘❤🌻
Thank you all for your prayers and private messages checking on me.. I’m well and missing and loving you all very very very much…
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍
Have Compassion For Yourself Too
This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves 🤔🙄🤔.
We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. 🤔🙄
They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too…
So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest 🤗❤
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗
