Divorce Your Past

To Move On To The New


Hello World, 

Yesterday was a very cold and rainy day and as I was painting the counter and shelves it hit me hard that my journey is just a couple weeks away and I lost it๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

I spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how to let go of the sadness and pain because this was supposed to be  and Michael’s journey.. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Although i know he’s with me daily in mind, heart and spirit, I couldn’t get past the fact that his physical isn’t with me and I literally cried all day and cried myself to sleep.๐Ÿ˜ข

I started doubting if I can really travel around alone to all the places he wanted us to see sprinkling his ashes along the way and this morning I woke up with this poem in my head.. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I know it’s going to be a very emotional journey yet I know in my heart and soul that this is meant to be and I believe yesterday was just a OMG IT’S REALLY HAPPENING day and this morning I remembered that I’m not letting go to forget… I’m letting go to move on with my life… 

To live and to begin a new journey, a new chapter in my life and although a tad scary it is time and I am ready. 

Thank you to everyone that has helped me get to this point and for all the love and support received and continue to receive… For you all I am eternally grateful ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

The countdown to my new beginning, my journey to heal has begun!

Don’t Stuff Your Feelings

They Always Find Their Way Back


Hello World, 

I haven’t posted a goodnight post in a while and not because of any reason other then I couldn’t think of anything to write ๐Ÿค”

Most of you know that all my posts, poems and quotes are written by me and that they really are about what I’m actually dealing with myself at that moment in time.. ๐Ÿ™„.. (It truly does take me longer to find a background image for my writing than it does to write what I write lol) 

Yet I’ve learned through my writing and by the beautiful responses I’ve received that I am not alone in my thinking nor am I alone with what I’m going through on a daily basis.. Good, bad or indifferent it’s life.. 

I’ve also learned from experience through the years, that stuffing my feelings doesn’t do anything other than compressing them into a ball that gets bigger the more I stuff and no matter what they always come back and always when you least expect it and they do come back tenfold… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Moral of this story: Don’t stuff your feelings cause they only come back to haunt you.. so deal with things as they come up cause no matter how hard they may be to face… In the long run you’ll be glad you did! 

Goodnight Universe..

Much love and sweet dreams ๐Ÿ’•

Men Have Feelings

It’s OK To Show Them Too!


Hello World

Last night I was talking with a very good friend that was upset because he was always told growing up that a man isn’t supposed to cry! A man isn’t supposed to show his feelings and that it makes him weak if he does! 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

THAT IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST HUGEST MOST GIGANTIC PET PEEVES!!! 

WHY AREN’T MEN SUPPOSED TO SHOW THEIR TRUE FEELINGS?? 

WHY ARE THEY TAUGHT NOT TO SHOW THEM?? 

THEY ARE ALLOWED & THEY SHOULD!!!!!!

I raised my boys to know that it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to show how you feel no matter what and every one of their girlfriends throughout the years loved that part of them and I do too! 

Society sucks in that manner because there is nothing wrong with crying! There is nothing wrong with showing your true feelings.. 

In fact it’s healthy to do so!!! 

Women are told they are too sensitive when we show our emotions and men are taught not to show them!! 

How ass backwards is that????? 

To all the men out there that were told that showing your feeling isn’t OK… BULL!!! 

To all the women out there that are told you’re too sensitive… BULL!!! 

Showing how you feel is showing that you are real… So allow yourself to honour your feelings and allow yourself to be real!!!

Listen To Your Gut

It Always Knows What’s Up


Hello World

Yesterday I took a break from the bus and decided to work on some crafts… My head was telling me “no work on the bus!” Yet my gut kept saying no… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

I use to make pretty covers for journals,  wish boxes and different frames for my quotes and poems all the time, making them with clay and it was very relaxing and helped me get outta my head… yet I stopped because I felt I lost my creativity mindset and tucked all that stuff away ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yesterday I decided to listened to what my gut said and got out all my clay and sat on the bed in the bus and knocked out 4 pretty boxes for some friends and it actually felt really good to do so and I didn’t work on the bus at all ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰.

Moral of this story: Our gut always sends us signals of what we should or shouldn’t do… So listen to what your gut says cause it won’t ever lie to you!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Don’t Stress About The End Result

Just Take It Step By Step


Hello World

Challenges whether new or old can really stress you out… Yet stressing out does nothing but bringing up more doubt ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

So don’t worry about the end result just do the steps one by one and know that everything will work out and you will get it done! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Yesterday figuring out the fresh water tank was easy as can be but figuring out where to drain the water was getting the the best of me… So I decided to take a break to look at it a different way and just when I stopped worrying about it I woke up with the answer today… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰.

I sometimes get so wrapped up inside my head that I sometimes cannot see.. The answer that I was looking for was right in front of me. ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜

Moral of this story… Sometimes we look so far ahead that we wind up wasting time so take a break and a couple steps back and things will fall in line! 

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒปโ™ฅ

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—…
