Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

Remember Setting Boundaries Is Perfectly OK

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’–

I’ve always been a blunt person and have always said what I mean and mean what I say… And I can totally admit that I can tend to be brutally honest when it comes to certain things…

Yet I’ve never ever had time for people that beat around the bush or when someone asks my opinion they turn around and get all butt hurt when I express how I feel about what they asked me about ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿค”

Whiners are a huge pet peeve of mine…

I get that we all hear, see and process things differently and I get that we all need to vent, yet vent about it then do something about it..

Don’t sit there and whine or bitch about it constantly… Get it off your chest then find a solution…

No matter what it is… Period!!!…๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿคจ

My point in all this is:

There’s certain things we need to set boundaries for and it doesn’t matter what it’s about… It can be as simple as someone asking your opinion about a certain subject…

Setting boundaries are a safety precaution for yourself..

Just like saying NO…

You don’t have to explain yourself when you’re doing what you want to do.. Especially when the boundry you set is for protecting YOU!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰..

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Be Proud Of Every Step You Take

Cause Every Little Step Counts

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—..

This morning while getting everything ready to set up the solar an elderly couple new to the RV park I’m at was walking by staring at the bus and asked me if they could see the inside ๐Ÿ˜..

I smiled and said of course ๐Ÿ˜‰…

They were really curious and asked me if I bought it like it is, which of course made me giggle, so I pulled up the before pics on my phone to show them…

After looking at the pics the woman looked at me and with a huge smile said:

“You should be very proud of yourself young lady!”

And y’all know me lol lol I got all teary eyed which of course made her get all teary eyed too ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—…

I smiled said thank you and they both gave me a hug and said that what I was doing to honor my son was amazing and so beautiful.. ๐Ÿ˜ข and they left…

But it made me think!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

We do tend to wait till the very end to pat ourselves in the back… But we need to remember where we started, then look at where we’re at… Cause every step is a milestone, each step is important too.. so be proud of every step you take, be proud of everything you do!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—…

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Listen To Your Gut

It Won’t Ever Lie To You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For a while before I bought the new batteries for the bus, every time I tried to start the bus I had to jump it to get it started and I kept getting a feeling that it wasn’t just my batteries, that I probably needed to get a new starter too…

But of course I didn’t listen to my gut, I kept listening to everyone else that said that I just needed two new batteries ๐Ÿค”

So this past Saturday I bought two new batteries, a starting battery and an auxillary battery and at first after I installed them it started right up, then after a few minutes when I went to start it…

Nothing…..It wouldn’t turn over at all ๐Ÿคฌ

So I decided to test the starter and go figure…

I need a new starter ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฌ

It’s an easy fix that I can do myself yet instead of going with my gut and getting one when I bought the batteries, I went against my gut and didn’t get it…

Go figure huh lol lol ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ซ

So tomorrow I’ll be going to the parts store AGAIN to get a new starter so I can install it tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ซ

My point in all this is that…

We tend to go against our gut when it tells us what to do… So listen to what your gut says cause it won’t ever lie to you!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Monday Isn’t A Bad Day

It’s Just Another Day

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

It always makes me laugh when I open up any social media platform and there are tons of posts about it being Monday ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

When I worked in corporate America I never understood why people hated Mondays so much….

For me it was the day that set up my whole week… Yet everyone else dreaded it and made me wonder if it was the day they dreaded or the job itself they dreaded๐Ÿค”…

My point in all this is that technically Monday is just another day… For some it’s the beginning of the work week and for some it’s not but technically it is just another day…

It’s not about what day it is.. It’s about how you look at the day in general… It’s all in your mindset… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜

So don’t make the excuse that it’s Monday cause it’s just another day… If you can do something tomorrow… You can also do it today!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Have a fantabulous day world โค๏ธ

Don’t Feel Guilty When You Say No

No Is A Complete Sentence

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

It took me a really long time to learn that NO is a complete sentence.. To understand that I shouldn’t feel guilty or have to give an explanation when saying no… And sometimes it’s still hard for me to say no โœ‹๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿ™……

I totally get when we say no to children that they will pout or throw a fit cause they are still learning yet when an adult gets all butt hurt or gets pissed off when I say no to something.. That totally throws me for a loop… ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

There is nothing wrong with saying NO if what you’re being asked to do isn’t right for you… You don’t need to explain and you certainly shouldn’t feel guilty… Yet we tend too feel we need to explain, we feel guilty for saying no… Or the people we’re saying no to try to make you feel bad for saying it ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„…..

The people that respect your decision will smile and say okay.. The ones that don’t may get really mad & may even walk away… Yet don’t feel bad for saying no cause it’s a complete sentence too … Saying yes when you mean no isn’t good for them or you! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰…

Have a beautiful day world โค๏ธ

When You Second Guess Yourself

You Stop Believing In You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Remember when you were in school and had to take a test… Before you handed it in you went back and changed a couple answers you weren’t sure about only to get the test back and the first answer you picked was correct but you second guessed yourself so you wound up getting the answer wrong!!!

Yeah gotta love when we do that right lol lol… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

Well for the past two days I was trying to figure out the best way to access my closet in the bus cause since I moved the bed, getting to my clothes was a tad difficult so instead of doing what I originally thought of I wound up rearranging everything only to wind up going right back to my original idea which totally wasted a whole day of work ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ..

I guess my point in all this is that we tend to second guess ourselves a lot and all we are really doing is not believing in ourselves… Not trusting in how we really feel in the first place ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

So my friends don’t second guess yourself cause what & how you feel in your heart is true… When you second guess yourself you stop believing in you!!! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜”…

Have a beautiful day world โค๏ธ

Don’t Look For Perfection

In Anything That You Seek

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends๐Ÿค—

This morning while walking my dog I saw the most beautiful butterfly sitting on a flower….

It sat there for what seemed like forever (of course I didn’t have my phone with me to take a pic ๐Ÿ˜ซ) and while I was staring at it I noticed that it’s wings weren’t truly identical ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.. the markings were slightly different ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

All my life I thought butterflies were perfect… I thought that their wings were identical in markings and had never really had the chance to stare at one long enough to notice that they actually aren’t ๐Ÿ˜ฎ… That there are flaws, that as beautiful as they are…

They aren’t perfect!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Why is it that strive for perfection??

In all reality we know that nothing in life is perfect…

Perfection is a fallicy cause everything has flaws yet we strive for something that can’t really be obtained cause there’s no such thing ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

So today I made a pact with myself to stop looking for or expecting things to turn out perfect cause as long as I’m doing my very best…

My best is perfect for me… ๐Ÿค—

I truly believe that once we stop looking for perfection and we learn to except and embrace not only what we do but WHO we are and we accept all of our flaws .. Our lives become perfectly perfect for us…๐Ÿค—

It doesn’t matter what others think about you…

What matters is what YOU think about yourself!!! ๐Ÿค”

So don’t look for perfection in anything that you seek

Love ALL you are & ALL your flaws cause you’re beautiful & unique๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful uniquely you day ๐Ÿ’—
