Flexible OptimismΒ 

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 πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„…

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… πŸ˜‰πŸ™„πŸ€”..

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..😀😀. 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 πŸ™„πŸ€”…

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 πŸ˜„πŸ˜€πŸ˜„….

Have a beautifully optimistic day πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

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 πŸ€”πŸ™„.

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! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜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… πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰.

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. πŸ˜ŒπŸ™„πŸ˜’πŸ˜

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 🌻β™₯

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 πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” and there actually is a difference between the two…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„…

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…. πŸ€”πŸ™„.

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… 😁😁.

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…πŸ’ͺπŸ™‹πŸ’ͺ.

…………………

Working on and having running water in the bus again and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… 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 son’s birthday October 4th. πŸ€—β€πŸ€— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful β€πŸ™β€β€¦ Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—…

Memories Last A Lifetime

Moments Turn Into Memories


Hello World,

Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… πŸ€”πŸ˜±πŸ™„πŸ˜‘πŸ˜’πŸ˜¨β€

The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜…

I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain πŸ€” πŸ™„. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€— and that is an amazing feeling β€πŸ™β€

Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life… 

Goodnight Universe ❀🌻❀

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 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 πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

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. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

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…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… 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 🌻🌍🌻

Who’s Life Is It?

Yours or Theirs?


Hello World

It really does amaze me when people try to tell you how to live… The way some think they know better and what’s better for you to do… Yet when you look at their life it’s definitely not how you want to live your life too πŸ€”πŸ™„

Yet don’t ever let it bother you cause it’s your life to live not theirs… You’re in control of your life and the who, what, why’s and where’s… And to identify the one that’s in charge of your success… Just look right in the mirror then go out and do your best  πŸ˜€β€πŸ˜€

I’m finally back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son spreading his ashes where I promised him I would and living our dream β€πŸ€—β€

Yesterday a beautiful friend helped me get closer to my goal.. the total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engines battery was $754 and now it’s down to $554 thank you thank you thank you Kim❀ πŸ˜˜πŸ€—β€I am so grateful

I am needing 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 πŸ€—. 

My gofundme link is still active and is in my bio for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. πŸ€—πŸ™

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€

Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words can’t express my gratitude and love for you all πŸ€—β€β€¦.

Sometimes Bad News Is Just A Clue

To Tell You To Modify What You Need To Do


Hello World,

So this being the first day I’m feeling good since I got back from my trip, I decided that I was gonna work on the bus for a bit… 

So I called the place that had the batteries I need which I had put a deposit on cause one needed to be ordered and while I was gone they called and said it was in and I told them I was out of town and would get it when I got back… “No problem” said the man on the phone and when I called him this morning he said “OOPS IT’S GONE!” πŸ€”

Needless to say I wanted to scream, yell and fight yet instead I just calmly said get me another one tonight… He said he would rush it and pay the shipping himself so I took my anger and put it on the back shelf… πŸ™„πŸ€—

The moral of this story is simple and short… Don’t let things you can’t control get you all out of sorts… Cause sometimes things that happen are just giving you a clue… To Modify what your doing so things work out better for you πŸ˜€.

……………….

Well I’m back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son and spread his ashes where I promised him I would…In order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engines battery, I need a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries which costs $364 total. I would also like to get a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times and the cost for the kit is $390. 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. Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words can’t express my gratitude for you all πŸ€—β€….
