Flexible Optimismย 

Can Change Your Point Of View


Hello World 

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them!” ~Albert Einstein 

Yesterday as I was trying to figure out how to secure something in the bus that just wasn’t working right, I stopped to reassess the whole design yet my mind kept telling me it would work and it wouldn’t ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„…

So I decided to move on to something else and this morning the quote from Albert Einstein popped into my head and that’s what made me write this poem… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

The mind can be very tricky and rather than looking at something from a different point of view, we tend to keep trying and wind up getting frustrated and or pessimistic and give up on the idea..๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค. If we use flexible optimism and look at it in a different way, we can usually figure out a different way of doing it… It’s all about changing our mindset ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

Moral of this story: When you start to feel pessimistic you can change that mindset too… Use flexible optimism to change your point of view ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„….

Have a beautifully optimistic day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Never Ever Doubt Yourself

Believe In Your Dreams and Your Goals


Hello World

When we share our dreams and goals with others, many will not believe that it’s possible. Many will tell you that your dreams or goals are too big and that you’ll never reach them.. Some will put doubt and fear in your head as well… yet who’s dreams are they? Theirs or yours?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I woke up thinking about all the people that thought I was crazy (after my son passed away) for wanting to get a bus and convert it into a living home on wheels. To travel all over the country sprinkling his ashes at all the beautiful places that we wanted too see and especially to do it alone.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

It made me giggle and actually start laughing hard cause at one point all their doubts and negativity stated to make me doubt that I could do it too… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” yet look at where I am now! 

The bus is almost finished and my journey will soon begin and I can smile at all the doubters cause in my heart I knew I’d win ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

Now when I look back at things I giggle and I laugh… cause I removed the negativity in my life and started to release the pain of my past. I believed with all my heart that I could make this dream come true, and I did exactly that with positivity and YOU.. 

So push all doubt out of your head and push negative people away from you.. They’re your dreams and it’s your life to live how you want too!!”

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Know Who You Are

Be Confident Too


Hello World

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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” and there actually is a difference between the two…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„…

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…. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

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… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

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…๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ’ช.

…………………

Working on and having running water in the bus again and I feel great about it and very productiveโ€ฆ Iโ€™m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kitโ€ฆ 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 sonโ€™s birthday October 4th. ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for itโ€™s helped me get where I am today and Iโ€™m so very grateful โค๐Ÿ™โคโ€ฆ Have a beYOUtiful day worldโ€ฆ back to work I go! ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—…

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

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. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ก…

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…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ… 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 ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒป

Life Is Filled With Ups and Downs

In’s and Outs and Round Abouts


Hello World,

Tonight I was thinking a lot about my trip and seeing so many people that were a huge part of my life growing up and mainly one person that brought back so many memories and love that I thought I had let go of or just forgot and that really wasn’t the case because they never left my heart๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

When we look back on our lives there’s so many things and people that came and went yet for some reason or another things changed… 

We look for the why’s and the reasons… the why it didn’t work out.. the what happened and more yet there really aren’t any answers other than it’s just the way life took its course… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

Just remember you wouldn’t be where you are today if you didn’t go through all those yesterday’s…

Some things are meant and some things are not yet love is forever cause it stays in your heart…. 

Good times will happen and bad times don’t last long.. yet they both make you who you are and they make you real strong… 

So hold your head high and smile along the way… Cause those memories in your heart will forever stay!!!

Goodnight Universe โค๐Ÿค—

Nothing Blooms All Year Long

Don’t Expect That You Should Too


Hello World,

As I sit here in bed for the past two days sick and feeling like crap… A friend of mine brought me some pretty flowers and said get well fast and these are to brighten your day…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

It made me think of the flowers and how they bloom, then wither away.. And year after year they come back and bloom again and are just as beautiful as before..๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒป

Our lives are just like flowers and different chapters in our lives wither away too…. Just remember like flowers are beautiful and come back… No matter what you go through you will always come back and bloom too!!! โค๐ŸŒปโค๐ŸŒปโค๐ŸŒปโค

Goodnight Universe โค๐Ÿค—โค

When You Believe

You Do Achieve


BUS UPDATE ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš ๐Ÿš

OK so I originally was going to remove the wheelchair ramp until today I figured out how to manually lock it into place and OMG I now have a back patio that has a 1500 pound weight limit that I can even stand in without my head touching the door when it’s open..WOO HOO so so excited… Yet that meant floor plan change again ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค” this makes the 3rd time I’ve changed it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Started painting the ramp white and it started looking way too much like a ambulance ๐Ÿš‘ so changed my mind again and am going to paint it blue tomorrow to match the inside walls and door 

So after I decided where I wanted the kitchen sink cabinet I moved it over into position and it got like a glove. Now mind you I now have to remove the chair I was gonna keep but that’s all good cause it truly fits perfectly as you’ll see.. tomorrow the rest of the chairs come out, the cabinet gets secured and the sink and countertop is getting done ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ I’m so excited I’m going to pop… And that’s what made me think of this poem tonight๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜

Don’t ever ever ever give up on your dreams cause when you believe they become easy to achieve โค

Still need help with a couple things I need to complete it so if anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link in my bio is still active and those are really the only things left that Iโ€™m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my sonโ€™s ashes and healโ€ฆ The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on โ€œRead Moreโ€ to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light
