Setbacks Don’t Define You

It’s How You Handle Them That Does

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why does it always seem like when everything is going good, you feel like it’s smooth sailing and you’re so close to finishing something, BAMπŸ’₯ you get slapped hard with something that sets you back big-time🀬😑

The past couple days, in between the rain, I finished putting the flowers and butterfly stickers up the sides of the bus, I replaced ALL the running lights bulbs and covers, I added elastic to the shelving so things don’t fly off the shelves (see pics⬇️),I secured the fridge and got everything I need to install the ladder on the back plus more and then..

BAMπŸ’₯

I find out today that I have to move the bus to it’s own site because the rules state there cannot be 2 RV’s in one site 🀨🀬🀨

Now technically we all know that the bus is NOT a fully self-contained RV yet because I do sleep in it and cook in it etc.. The manager and owner of the park are being…(best not say what I’d like too) and I have no choice but to move to another site or move the bus over to storage which I can’t do because there’s no electricity in storage and I need electricity to finishing working on itπŸ˜”..

So $635 total for me to move to another site starting Tuesday to June 9th..Which not only pushes my departure date back over 2 weeks, It also means I literally cannot spend a dime between now and then and it totally depletes my emergency road savings 😭 so I’ve got to make sure everything is totally on point now..😩

Does this upset me and throw a wrench in my plans..

Yep big-time..

Yet I cannot and will not allow it to beat me down..🀨..

My point in all this is that setbacks happen, they’re a part of life…

Even if no fault of your own, you have two choices..

You can either let it break you or you can stay strong and keep moving forward…

for me I only have one coffee and that is to keep going no matter what πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰.

So my friends no matter what life throws at you… Don’t give up… Life really sucks when you love with regrets so keep moving forward no matter what!!! You’ll get to where you’re going eventually and as I always say… Even baby steps get you to your goals and dreams 😘

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

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€¦.

Life Is Filled With Ups and Downs

In’s and Outs and Round Abouts


Hello World,

Tonight I was thinking a lot about my trip and seeing so many people that were a huge part of my life growing up and mainly one person that brought back so many memories and love that I thought I had let go of or just forgot and that really wasn’t the case because they never left my heartπŸ€”πŸ™„

When we look back on our lives there’s so many things and people that came and went yet for some reason or another things changed… 

We look for the why’s and the reasons… the why it didn’t work out.. the what happened and more yet there really aren’t any answers other than it’s just the way life took its course… πŸ€”πŸ™„

Just remember you wouldn’t be where you are today if you didn’t go through all those yesterday’s…

Some things are meant and some things are not yet love is forever cause it stays in your heart…. 

Good times will happen and bad times don’t last long.. yet they both make you who you are and they make you real strong… 

So hold your head high and smile along the way… Cause those memories in your heart will forever stay!!!

Goodnight Universe β€πŸ€—

Everything In Life Is Connected

Embrace All That You Are


Hello World,

Today it rained all day long and as I worked in the bus painting and contemplating my journey thus far… I realized how everything we see and everything we do, everything we feel inside and out is connected in some kind of way πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

Life throws all kinds of things at us… Some happy and some very sad… Yet everything in life is connected… Things that are good and are bad πŸ™„πŸ€”

Everything in life is connected, from the stars in the sky to the oceans below… Everything in life is connected, everything we see and we know… ❀❀

Embrace everything around you, embrace the sun, moon and stars… cause everything in life is connected and that’s what makes you who you are! 

Goodnight Universe ❀ 😘

When You Believe

You Do Achieve


BUS UPDATE 🚐🚐 🚐🚐 🚐

OK so I originally was going to remove the wheelchair ramp until today I figured out how to manually lock it into place and OMG I now have a back patio that has a 1500 pound weight limit that I can even stand in without my head touching the door when it’s open..WOO HOO so so excited… Yet that meant floor plan change again πŸ™„πŸ€” this makes the 3rd time I’ve changed it πŸ™„πŸ€”

Started painting the ramp white and it started looking way too much like a ambulance πŸš‘ so changed my mind again and am going to paint it blue tomorrow to match the inside walls and door 

So after I decided where I wanted the kitchen sink cabinet I moved it over into position and it got like a glove. Now mind you I now have to remove the chair I was gonna keep but that’s all good cause it truly fits perfectly as you’ll see.. tomorrow the rest of the chairs come out, the cabinet gets secured and the sink and countertop is getting done πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ I’m so excited I’m going to pop… And that’s what made me think of this poem tonightπŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ˜

Don’t ever ever ever give up on your dreams cause when you believe they become easy to achieve ❀

Still need help with a couple things I need to complete it so if anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link in my bio is still active and those are really the only things left that I’m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my son’s ashes and heal… The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light
