Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything πŸ€”…

So I want you all to do me a favor…😁

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

Have a beautiful weekend my friends πŸ’—πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—…

Indecision Is A Decision

Make A Decision That’s Right For You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

For the past few months I’ve been driving myself crazy about the little fridge I bought when I first got the bus πŸ€” I thought it would be big enough for my needs and slowly but surely I wound up not liking it at all cause I truly couldn’t put anything in it… πŸ˜•.. like not even a gallon of anything or fruits and veggies

I kept going back and forth in my head mainly because I couldn’t figure out the wattage a bigger one would use and if the inverter I have would be able to keep it running 24/7 😲😡

Well after months of being indecisive.. I decided that since I will be living in the bus indefinitely and it will truly be my home on wheels, I took the plunge, got a bigger one WHICH I LOVE (pics below) lifted my bed so it would fit underneath and turned the area where the little fridge was into my pantry and I couldn’t be happier… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—.. My inverter is more than enough to run the new fridge too😁😊

I had help building the pantry too… NOT…😸 Meet Boots 😼 he’s my other baby and is constantly trying to help me with the bus.. Hahaha help me by getting in my way, playing with the cords etc…😼😼😼.. But he is a lover and a bed hog too 😻😻😻..

Needless to say…

My point in all this is that our minds can send mixed signals and really confuse us too… Indecision is a decision my friends so make a choice that works best for you!!! πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ™„..

So here’s the update with my mini fridge and my pantry and my furry little helper haha… Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???πŸ€”

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😡 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..πŸ˜•

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road 😯…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me 😒 ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok 😒😒..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Stay True To You

It’s Empowering To Be You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Yesterday I was reading an article about how people tend to have a “Blank Check” personality and especially women.. and it really hit home with me then later in the day a little boy that I babysit told me he loves me cause I’m always the same Auntie Ricci πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”..

We all do tend to have different personalities yet why???

We are different at work then we are at home… We’re different when we go shopping than we are when we go out on the town… We’re different with our friends in person than we are with online friends…

HmmmmmπŸ€”

We tend to put different masks on many times throughout the day and although I know our actions must match the situation, we don’t have to change “Who” we are, yet we do.

I will be the first to say I have a sailors mouth haha yet I also know when to let it flow and when to curb it..

Yet I am still the same Ricci whether I’m using my sailors mouth or not πŸ™„..

My point is…

Just like a flower doesn’t compare itself to others in the field..

Always be who you truly are cause it’s empowering to be real!! It doesn’t matter what others think or what they say or do… The most amazing thing you can do for yourself is to always be true to you!!😁

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Taking Breaks Are Healthy

They Do A Body and Mind Good


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Why is it that when we want to take a break from something we tend to feel guilty for doing so? πŸ€”

We are programmed to Go Go Go and we wonder why we either break down or wind up getting the F### It’s.. πŸ™„πŸ˜±πŸ™„

Our bodies and mind aren’t made to go non stop if they were we wouldn’t need sleep… they both need to take breaks … 

Breaks help us get our strength back and help to clear our mind so we don’t get all cluttered and burnt out 😁

So give yourself permission to take a break or two… It will help you get more focused and it’s actually good for you!!!😁.

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Courage vs Fear

Choose To Be Courageous


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

So many people tell me I’m courageous for wanting to embark on a van living life being a solo female and it made me think about what the word actually means πŸ€”πŸ€”

COUΒ·RAΒ·GEOUS — kΙ™ΛˆrājΙ™s/adjective

Not deterred by danger or pain; brave.

Hmmmmm πŸ€”

I think the key words in this definition are: “Not Deterred” which I believe is true when it comes to me being courageous… 

It’s not that I don’t have my fears when it comes to embarking on a solo van life… It’s just that I refuse to allow fear to stop me from living my dream. 😁

Fear is a bitch and I’ve learned that it can and will stop you from accomplishing anything if YOU allow it too… 

Yet once you push past it… You realize there was nothing to be fearful of in the first place πŸ™„

Learning to be courageous is not a hard thing to do… All it means is that you refuse to allow anything to fully stop you… 

Being courageous is powerful and shows that you’re not afraid too try… So learn to be courageous and don’t let fear stop you from reaching the sky πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹

Have a beautiful and courageous day πŸ’—
