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

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’–

Don’t Ever Doubt Your Abilities

There’s So Much You Can Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป..

There’s only 3 major things left to do in the bus..

1.Get it tuned up..

2. Finish installing the solar

&

3. Get the tires installed…

My mechanic who comes to me to do the work on the bus has been crazy busy and because he knew I wasn’t leaving till June 10th his coming to finish the tune up wasn’t really on my mind and then BAM ๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

I was in the midst of organizing the bus (a never ending task lol) putting things where I wanted them so I remember where they are lol, packing away winter clothes etc when my phone rang and it was my mechanic ๐Ÿ˜ฏ he was on his way to finish tuning up the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

At first I was excited and then I got highly emotional and started crying… It hit me…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

My new life is truly about to begin…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

The biggest part of my leaving was getting a tune-up and OMG it’s done…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

So many emotions went though my mind and still are yet it made me think about the day I brought the bus home, what it looked like inside and out and what it looks like today and there’s so much for me to be proud of ๐Ÿ˜.

My point in all this is:

Don’t ever downsize your abilities, don’t doubt what you can do.. all your dreams can happen, when you believe in YOU!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

OMG IT’S HAPPENING!

35 days and counting!!!

AHHHHHHH ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

A couple days ago I be posted about following your gut and about my getting new batteries for the bus and it not starting after I installed them ๐Ÿคฌ

I talked about my thinking it was the starter and not the batteries and so yesterday I took out the starter and took it to the parts store to get a new one ๐Ÿค”
The guy at the store was really nice and wanted to test the starter before I had to put out $180 for a new one and AHHHHHHH it tested perfectly fine 4 TIMES ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ

SOOOOOOOOO he tried to troubleshoot the issue with me and as we were brainstorming a light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that the original owner told me I may have to get a new starter solenoid… ๐Ÿค”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid๐Ÿค” my neighbor came over and he helped me test the solenoid and yep yep there was no juice going to it at all…

I replaced the solenoid and BAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ IT STARTED RIGHT UP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Yes I did a happy dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ…

My point in all this is:

Your dreams don’t happen easily, you have to work for it… Just keep going no matter what & DON’T YOU EVER QUIT!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

Now onto the solar ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Don’t Let A Bad 5 Minutes

Ruin Your Whole Day

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

It truly baffles me when something shitty happens, no matter if it’s huge or if it’s tiny, we tend to hold on to it for so long that it ruins our day or days for that matter ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ

This weekend I allowed a shitty situation to take over my whole weekend ๐Ÿคฌ why?? I don’t know…

It’s not like I could control it…

It’s not like it was done TO me intentionally and even if it was there’s absolutely nothing I could do about it yet I let it control me, make me angry, make me get all stressed out, then depressed blah blah blah…

When in all reality because there was nothing I could do I should’ve just processed it and let it go ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคจ.

Now I’m not saying that I should’ve stuffed my feelings about it..

Never do that..

Yet once I processed it and figured out what I needed to do, if anything, I should’ve just let it go and moved on…

But nooooooooo I allowed it to swell up in my head and ruin my weekend ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

It wasn’t until last night when a couple of amazing women I’m in a group with asked me about my old GoFundMe account and it dawned on me that sweating it was truly a waste of time all I needed to do was ask for help ๐Ÿ˜ž

It’s always been really hard for me to ask for help and it still is… Even though I know that my NOT asking for help denies others the same pleasure and good feeling I get when I help someone..

Go figure huh ๐Ÿ˜ฉ ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

My point in all this is… Don’t allow a bad 5 minutes to ruin your day or get you stuck on stupid… it’s so much easier to move on when you don’t sweat the small stuff..

And remember…

There’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you really need to.. You know how good it feels when you help someone… So don’t deny the good feeling it gives to others when they want help you!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–…

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Fear Is Just A Feeling

And Feelings Come & Go

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s kinda ironic when there’s something that you really want to do yet fear of doing it creeps in and you either keep putting it off or you wind up not doing it at all ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’ve always been a perfectionist be when it comes to doing stuff and always do a ton of research prior to doing anything I’ve never done before as well as asking people that have done it so I’m doing it correctly which I do believe is a good thing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜… And I’ve been really excited about setting the solar up on the bus for a long time and over a month ago I ordered everything I need to do it yet because I’m not an expert when it comes to solar I keep putting it off rather than just doing it…๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s not like it takes a rocket scientist to do it, it’s pretty self explanatory yet I’ve allowed the fear of not ever doing it before get the best of me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ go figure huh?!?!?…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ So I decided today that I’m hooking the solar up no matter what.. After all I won’t know if it works if I don’t ๐Ÿ™„
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My point in all this is… When there’s something that you really really want to do… Don’t let the fear of never doing it before stop you… Cause if you do you’ll never do it… We are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit for and fear is just a feeling that we can always push past when we put our minds to it… It’s just a matter of doing it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…So don’t let fear stop you or let it get in your way..Tell the fear to kiss your butt and do it anyway.. Cause fear is just a feeling and feelings come and go..Push past the fear itself.. your stronger than you know ๐Ÿ˜

Happy day world ๐Ÿ’—

The Choice Is Up To You

Choose To Be Happy

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends โค๏ธ
It always makes me giggle when someone says that they woke up in a bad mood ๐Ÿค”

I mean seriously… How can you wake up in a bad mood???

I understand if you slept crappy or something kept waking you up that you may be tired..

Yet how can anyone seriously WAKE UP in a bad mood? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”…

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best person to interact with as soon as I open my eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ yet that is cause my blood hasn’t stated circulating and my brain just needs to fully wake up before I start rambling or have a full blown conversation (my coffee addiction helps that haha) yet I can’t ever say that I opened my eyes and woke up in a bad mood ๐Ÿค”…

We truly do have control on how we feel each and every day…

We can choose to smile as soon as we wake up or we can choose to be a grouch…

The key word is CHOOSE…

Cause we are totally control of how we want to be when we open our eyes in the morning…

Sooooo make the choice to be happy and choose to smile when you open your eyes… It really is that simple ๐Ÿ™„

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—
