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 🌻🌍🌻

We Aren’t Invisible

We’re Here To See Each Other Through


Good evening my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

With all the devastation between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and the possibility of Jose… It made me think about how important it is for us all to be here for each other πŸ€”πŸ™πŸ€”.

Some things we can’t control like Mother Nature… Some things we can like offering a helping hand… It’s not something we have to do yet it’s definitely something we all should do… πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—.

Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and it can truly change someone life… We aren’t invisible yet so many turn their heads when they see someone less fortunate or not “like”they are… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”. 

We aren’t here to be better than or to see through each other… We are here to see each other through.. cause when it comes down to it that’s what we’re here to do… We ARE one!!! 

Goodnight night universe, Goodnight my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Don’t Let Fear Halt Your Progress

Let Faith Propel Your Success


Hello World,

This morning after I did my daily routine of meditating, making my coffee and contemplating what I want to do in the bus today, I looked inside from the back and actually got all teared up πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

My mind took me back to when I was afraid that getting the bus would never happen and I smiled looking at all the progress I have made… πŸ€—πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

New adventures and changes are scary that’s true… Just don’t ever let fear get the best of you… πŸ˜€πŸ€”πŸ™„

The inside of the bus is looking really good and I’ve pushed past my fears and have done what I could.. now it’s almost ready and so am I to go spread my son’s ashes and start saying goodbye… Not to forget just to move on with my life and live all my dreams for the rest of my life πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™

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 engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.

I am still needing to purchase 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 below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.

Always Believe

In You


Hello World

Today after I learned that I am 400 miles away from the predicted path of hurricane Irma and won’t be affected by it I spent the whole day making window curtain insulation panels and getting shelves put up cause I decided that if Southern Florida needs help I want to be able to go there in the bus and help being that I’m in Florida too!!! So I’m totally on a mission get this done  πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™

Luckily the bus is really really insulated well yet I wanted to make something that covered the windows for privacy, that I could put up and take down easily and that helped insulated the windows themselves cause they are big and there’s 10 of them… So I came up with the idea to use a thin insulation (reflectix)  that prevents condensation and cover it with a Navy blue material so the inside at night matched the theme of my blog Hello World Goodnight Universe and it turned out perfectly… πŸ€—β€πŸ€—.


I still need to add the Velcro and finish decorating them yet here’s what it looks like so far (excuse the tape I used to hold them in place lol) it’s all coming together and I’m so so excited and so grateful πŸ™.

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 engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.

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€….

It’s Just How Long You’ve Been You


Hello World,

This has been a beautiful yet extremely emotional few days. Flying to see my sister and family has been a whirlwind of emotions and memories of the past 40+ yrs… πŸ˜±πŸ™„πŸ˜±

Lots of laugh, lots of tears and lots of omg Ricci you haven’t changed a bit LOL LOL… and that’s what made me write this poem cause it’s true… 

Age is just a number it is very true.. your age is just the number that shows how long you’ve been learning to be you… It really doesn’t matter what you do or what you’ve done… As long as you are true to yourself then your life will always be fun!!!

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—
