A Great Big Smile

Can Brighten Your Day

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—
This morning I woke up smiling really big.. not sure if it was from a dream I had or just because…

Yet whatever the reason it reminded me that we all need to wake up smiling…

There truly is nothing that can “make” you start your day in a shitty mood cause how you start your day is totally in your control…

It doesn’t matter if the kids are screaming, you’re running late, the weather sucks or your stuck in a massive traffic jam.. nothing controls your day but YOU …

No matter what!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰..

So my friends…

Don’t forget to start your day with a great big smile… Screaming kids and traffic jams only last a little while…

Don’t forget to pause and breathe if things don’t go your way… Remember that YOU’RE in control…

Now Go Have A Beautiful Day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Happiness Shows In Everything You Do

Cause It Comes From Inside Of You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

This morning I had to take the little boy I babysit to the school bus by 6:45am which I rarely do because his parents know I don’t like getting up that early and his dad usually does it, yet this morning when I picked him up he asked me something that totally threw me for a loop..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

He asked me why I’m always laughing & smiling ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

Now I haven’t ever been a morning person, at least I don’t think so lol and if you were to ask my kids what I was like in the mornings they would tell you to leave me alone until I had my coffee…

Yet this little boy saw something in me that I guess I don’t see in myself and it truly caught me off guard and all I could do was laugh ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜‚…

I can say that I am a very positive and optimistic person yet truly thought I was always a bitch in the mornings cause I like my mornings quiet..

At least until I have my coffee and my blood starts to circulate lol lol

Yet when I asked him why he thinks that he said cause he always sees me smiling and laughing even when I was hurting bad when my back went out ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

All I could do was smile and tell him that smiling and laughing just feels better then being yucky ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰…

My point in all this is..

Being happy really doesn’t come from outside of us…

When we are truly happy within ourselves it shows outside of us too… It shows in everything we say and it shows in everything we do…

So don’t look for happiness outside of yourself cause that’s not where happiness is…

Happiness comes from inside your heart, cause that’s where happiness lives ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€….

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

A Smile Can Change Everything

A Smile Is From The Heart

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

The last few days have been difficult for me… Trying my best not to fall into a depressed funk from missing my son badly and just lots of things on my mind.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜–

Yet today I was at the little country store where I live and there was the cutest little baby sitting in it’s stroller staring at me…

As soon as I made eye contact with him, he gave me the biggest smile and of course it made me smile big right back…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 

I asked his mom how old he was and she said he was almost 5 months… I complimented his beautiful smile and then the oddest thing happened… ๐Ÿ™„

As I went to walk away he started crying๐Ÿค”I kept walking and his cries got louder… 

So I had to walk back and as soon as he saw me he stopped and smiled huge…I smiled back and giggled and went to walk away and omg he started screaming again hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚..

His mom and I laughed cause every time I tried to walk away he started screaming…… 

His Mom asked me if I wanted to hold him and so of course I said yes and OMG as soon as I put him in my arms he started laughing hard… Which of course made me and his mom laugh and she said he’s never ever done that… 

Why he did I don’t know yet I walked them out to her car, put him in his car seat gave him a kiss on his forehead and said… Thank you little man.. You just made my day ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—…

He smiled huge and this time didn’t scream when I walked away…๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค”.

Now I’m not sure why that happened and yet I do believe it was a sign from the universe letting me know my son is ok or maybe a sign from my son … 

Yet more than anything I do know that the power of a smile cause truly change your mood… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

So my friends don’t forget to smile today at everyone you see… Cause a little smile can change the world and make it a beautiful place to be ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜.

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… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜จโค

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 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜…

I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ™„. 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 ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค— and that is an amazing feeling โค๐Ÿ™โค

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…

There’s No Such Thing As Perfection

Everyone and Everything Is Unique


Hello World,

Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป…

I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป.

The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒŽ

So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ

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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

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  ๐Ÿ˜€โค๐Ÿ˜€

Iโ€™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 โค๐Ÿค—โค

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 Iโ€™m stopped at night without using the engines battery was $754 and now it’s down to $554 thank you thank you thank you Kimโค ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿค—โคI 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 ๐Ÿค—. 

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. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

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 โค๐Ÿค—โค

Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words canโ€™t express my gratitude and love for you all ๐Ÿค—โคโ€ฆ.
