Sooooooooo… It always makes me laugh when people say that I’m so strong for doing this cause it truly has nothing to do with how I feel inside… My strength is what makes me do it and walk through the fear but it doesn’t take away the fact that I’m a freaking basketcase and truly feel like I want to puke…๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ..It’s been 10 long months since I brought the bus home and started working on it and the fact that it’s all done and I’m hitting the road in 3 days truly makes me feel like I wanna puke hahaha… My emotions are all over the place, I can’t eat, my stomach is in knots and I truly wanna scream… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…Sooooooooo… The next few days I’ll just be making sure I’ve got all my ducks in a row and doing my best to breathe ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„ but I wanted to say thank you to all of you that have stuck by me through this crazy journey of building the bus, my tears, my laughs, my everything…

Thank you so very much…I am truly grateful and love you all dearly! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™..

Let the countdown begin!! 3 days AHHHH ๐Ÿคฏ

Always Stay True

Always Be You!!!

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends

Don’t you just love it when people not only give you their opinion when you didn’t even ask for it or want it for that matter… But then they get all butt hurt when you disagree or don’t take their opinion or suggestion ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yesterday morning while I was moving stuff on the other side of the bus so my mechanic can do the brakes… One of my “nosy” neighbors came over to ask me why I didn’t just drive it to a shop to get it done… ๐Ÿค”

When I tried to explain to her that the brakes needed to be done and that the tires that were on the bus were from March 2003 and I wasn’t comfortable driving it with the tires and brakes in the condition they were in.. she proceeded to tell me that I should’ve just got it towed blah blah blah and when I said I understand that’s what you would’ve done but you’re not me and this is better for me cost wise… She got all butt hurt and said “Well fine then.. If you don’t want my opinion I won’t give it anymore!”

I smiled and said ok!… As soon as she walked away my mechanic started cracking up and said: “gotta love people and as they say..opinions are like assholes and we all have one huh!”

Which of course made me laugh hard!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My point is all this is:

Everyone has an opinion, Not everyone thinks like you… Not everyone will understand why you do the things you do…

Yet we know what they say about opinions.. And we all have one too… Just keep on going no matter what & keep on being YOU!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

Positive Words Can Make You

Negative Words Can Break You

Hello World๐ŸŒปHappy Day My Friends๐Ÿ˜

Well today is brakes day on the bus ๐Ÿ˜and when my mechanic called me this morning it was like a realization slap in the face that embarking on my new life journey is truly right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

16 days and counting and omg I’ll be hitting the road ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So many emotions happening right now and yet his call made me realize I’m down to one thing after the brakes and it also made me think of before I got the bus and how so many times I thought and said it wouldn’t happen and that’s when this poem popped into my head…

I thought about how often we actually stop things from happening in our lives just because WE think we CAN’T and that’s so not true… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ซ

My favorite actress Audrey Hepburn once said:

“Nothing is impossible, for even the word itself says “I’M POSSIBLE!”

and that’s so very true… When we fill our minds with “I can’t”, then we won’t…

And when we fill our heads with “YES I CAN”… We do…

It’s really that simple!

So always say positive words and believe in those words too… Cause when we say things like “YES I CAN” all our dreams come true! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

16 DAYS AND COUNTING ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Always BELIEVE ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

The Pursuit Of Happiness

Is Right Inside Your Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

For the past week as I’ve been doing the last few things on the bus, I’ve been reflecting a lot about my past and my upcoming new life and journey and I asked myself when was I the happiest?

Of course the first thing that popped into my head was having my children ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿ‘ง.. but then I truly couldn’t think of anything that truly made me happy other than my kids ๐Ÿค”

For most of my life I thought it was outside things that brought me happiness…

I had a a great job, made good money, got my children and myself everything that we wanted, went on amazing vacations etc yet when I really thought about all that, none of it made me truly happy…

What did make me happy was the laughs, the times we went camping and laughed so hard we cried. Cuddling on the couch watching movies…Watching them grow up, graduating from school etc and seeing them play, laugh and smile…

Those were truly the happiest times of my life and continue to be ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

The little things that make you FEEL!!๐Ÿ’–

So my friends do not look outside yourself to find your happy place… Happiness isn’t a destination it’s not a marathon race!!

So if you want true happiness the place you need to start… It truly within yourself cause happiness comes from your heart!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

Have A Happy Day World

Goodnight Universe ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

BUS UPDATE ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Everything Starts As A Dream

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—..
โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ BUS UPDATE PICS โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yesterday my mechanic came over and checked all the brakes and the front are fine but we decided to completely do the back brakes and to my surprise ALL the parts I need to get are under $100๐Ÿ˜

Tuesday I’m getting the parts and he’s going to install everything on Thursday ๐Ÿ˜ฎ which only leaves the tires which I’m getting the following week and she’ll be ready to hit the road!!! ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎOMG 21 DAYS & COUNTING ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

This morning after I took some pics I went back and looked at the before pics and I figured since the inside and outside is completely done, I’d share some Before & After pics ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

I truly can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that in 21 days I’ll be on the road…๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

Of course I got all emotional lol but I started thinking about how everything in life really does start out as a dream

When we’re kids we dream of what we want to be when we grow up…

As we get older we dream about all the things we’d like to do before we get old and can’t do them anymore or as some say and do… we make a bucket list of things we wanna do before we die ๐Ÿค”

Everything we do in life truly does start out as a dream ๐Ÿ’–

Take it from me my friends…

Never ever stop believing in your dreams and do whatever it takes to achieve them..

You have to believe in them to make them come true and the most important thing YOU have to believe in is ๐Ÿ’ฏ% YOU!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Cause when we make the decision to go after that dream and do everything in our power to believe in them and work towards them.. They truly can and do come true!!! ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ™..

Everything in life starts out as a dream & making those dreams come true… Is totally up to YOU! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

Thanks for all your love and support!!

Value Who You Are

Cause You Are A Shining Star

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–
This morning after doing my morning ritual the first thing I read was a post from my beautiful friend Dr. Jacque Colbert..

She was honoring and thanking all the beautiful souls in her life and not only did it make me smile, it made me think about how often we don’t take the time to not only value and thank others in our lives, we forget to honor and value the most important person of all…

OURSELVES!!!

So on this beautiful day I want to remind you all to remember to value yourself just as much as you value, are thankful and are grateful for others…

Cause when we stop to value all that we have and all that we are too… We learn to love our own self-worth & we attract more goodness too…๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

So be grateful and thankful for all that you have and value all that you are… Love & honor your own self-worth cause you’re a beautiful shining star!!! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–
