Beauty Isn’t Just Outside

It’s Also Inside Of You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

This morning I woke up really early and couldn’t fall back asleep. It was still dark outside, and because of the panels I made for the windows in the bus, it was really dark inside the bus too….

I sat in my bed debating on if I wanted to get up or if I should try and go back to sleep.. everything was so quiet…

So I sat there listening to the silence for a minute and then…

BAM ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I heard the most beautiful birdsong I’ve ever heard…๐Ÿ•Š ๐Ÿฆ

It actually made me tear up ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜

It made me think of how much we miss seeing and hearing because we are always on the go…

Rarely taking the time to stop and just listen to all that is around us and it also reminded me that when we use all of our senses there’s so much more we can appreciate…

A bigger world truly opens up to us in many ways ๐Ÿ˜

My point in this is…

Don’t just look at the world through your eyes…

Smell it, hear it, taste it, touch it and use all of the senses in you… Cause all the beauty within our world is outside & inside of you too ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™

Take time to listen to the silence today…

The music you’ll hear is amazing ๐Ÿ’—

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

No More Resolutions

I’m Setting Intentions Instead


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

The past couple of days I’ve been contemplating whether or not I’m going to make a few New Year’s resolutions ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

Then when I woke up this morning I thought… 

NOT.. 

Every year I make resolutions, I start out ok and then by the middle of the year they have gone out the window and then I start feeling guilty or I wind up being hard on myself for not following through…๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

SOOOOOOO today I decided that instead of making “resolutions” I’m gonna set “intentions” instead… 

When we intend to do something and it doesn’t pan out, for me at least, I’m never ever as hard on myself as I am when I make a resolution and don’t stick with it ๐Ÿค”

So setting intentions of what I’d like to do and what I’d like to change is much more workable, for me anyway ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰

Nevertheless… 

I wanted to stop by and send a huge thank you to all of you, friends, family and all my followers that have stuck with me through a very difficult 2017 and send you all so much love and happiness today, for the New Year and beyond!!! 

Be safe if you’re going out … 

I actually am and haven’t in over 25 yrs ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ so this is going to be very interesting hahahaha… 

Have fun, smile and don’t forget to laugh..A LOT ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—..

MUCH LOVE TO YOU ALL AND HAPPY NEW YEAR .. 

MAY 2018 BRING YOU ALL HAPPINESS, LOVE, ABUNDANCE AND TONS OF LAUGHS… 

LOVE YOU ALL HUGE HUGE HUGE ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Stop and Smell The Roses

A Little Every Day


Hello World 

This morning while I was walking my dog, I heard the prettiest bird singing and it made me stop for a moment and just listen to all the sounds around me..๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„..

The birds singing, the wind lightly blowing through the leaves in the trees… The little things… 

And it made me think about all the little things we take for granted ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

Life is busy yes… 

Yet we tend to get so wrapped up in it, especially this time of year, that we forget to stop and smell the roses so to speak… ๐Ÿค”

We forget to notice all the little things that are so beautiful.. 

Like the sound of children playing…

A warm and gentle smile we get from a passing stranger.. 

The sound of the wind blowing through the trees… 

The early morning birds singing… 

The beauty that surrounds us every day that can truly make us smile…๐Ÿ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฆ..

Today if only for a minute… 

Stop and smell the roses.. 

Maybe not literally, yet take that pause to just listen to the silence… Notice all the beauty that surrounds you.. Then take a big deep breath and smile… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—..

Believe me it will change how you handle the rest of your day!!! 

Have a fantabulous day my friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒน

Optimism Is Having Faith

To Achieve Your Dreams


Hello World, 

Well I figured out what that little bit of fear I was experiencing was… And as I worked through it I had to laugh and laugh hard… Cause it basically was a reality check showing me that my dream IS and HAS come true..๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

I guess for me all this time I’ve been working towards getting the bus, converting it and having the ability to travel and keep my promise to my son to live our dream and sprinkle his ashes at all the places we wanted to see, was still in the back of my mind as a dream that I hoped would one day come true and it hit me hard that it HAS come true and it IS happening and I WILL be on the road living that dream very very soon. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

I guess it was one of those omg wake-up call reality checks when I walked out if the bus the other night and it scared the crap out of me… Like REALLY??? REALITY CHECK RICCI… It’s happening right here, right now!!!! Someone pinch me please hahaha ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ… 

Which brought this poem/quote/whatever you wanna call it to mind this morning…๐Ÿค— Hope, Faith, Believing and Optimism all go hand in hand and they all lead you to living the life of your dreams!!! So always have hope, always have faith and always believe in being optimistic.. Cause optimism is having the faith to turn your dreams into your reality.. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ 

I know cause I believed and my dream is now my reality ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— Never stop believing my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—and always believe YOU CAN ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

There’s No Such Thing As Perfection

Everyone and Everything Is Unique


Hello World,

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…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป…

I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป.

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…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒŽ

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 ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ

Don’t Let Fear Halt Your Progress

Let Faith Propel Your Success


Hello World,

This morning after I did my daily routine of meditating, making my coffee and contemplating what I want to do in the bus today, I looked inside from the back and actually got all teared up ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„.

My mind took me back to when I was afraid that getting the bus would never happen and I smiled looking at all the progress I have made… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—…

New adventures and changes are scary that’s true… Just don’t ever let fear get the best of you… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

The inside of the bus is looking really good and I’ve pushed past my fears and have done what I could.. now it’s almost ready and so am I to go spread my son’s ashes and start saying goodbye… Not to forget just to move on with my life and live all my dreams for the rest of my life ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while Iโ€™m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this far๐Ÿ˜€โค๐Ÿค—.

I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times ๐Ÿค— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.
