Always Stay True

Always Be You!!!

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends

Don’t you just love it when people not only give you their opinion when you didn’t even ask for it or want it for that matter… But then they get all butt hurt when you disagree or don’t take their opinion or suggestion ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yesterday morning while I was moving stuff on the other side of the bus so my mechanic can do the brakes… One of my “nosy” neighbors came over to ask me why I didn’t just drive it to a shop to get it done… ๐Ÿค”

When I tried to explain to her that the brakes needed to be done and that the tires that were on the bus were from March 2003 and I wasn’t comfortable driving it with the tires and brakes in the condition they were in.. she proceeded to tell me that I should’ve just got it towed blah blah blah and when I said I understand that’s what you would’ve done but you’re not me and this is better for me cost wise… She got all butt hurt and said “Well fine then.. If you don’t want my opinion I won’t give it anymore!”

I smiled and said ok!… As soon as she walked away my mechanic started cracking up and said: “gotta love people and as they say..opinions are like assholes and we all have one huh!”

Which of course made me laugh hard!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My point is all this is:

Everyone has an opinion, Not everyone thinks like you… Not everyone will understand why you do the things you do…

Yet we know what they say about opinions.. And we all have one too… Just keep on going no matter what & keep on being YOU!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

Value Who You Are

Cause You Are A Shining Star

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–
This morning after doing my morning ritual the first thing I read was a post from my beautiful friend Dr. Jacque Colbert..

She was honoring and thanking all the beautiful souls in her life and not only did it make me smile, it made me think about how often we don’t take the time to not only value and thank others in our lives, we forget to honor and value the most important person of all…

OURSELVES!!!

So on this beautiful day I want to remind you all to remember to value yourself just as much as you value, are thankful and are grateful for others…

Cause when we stop to value all that we have and all that we are too… We learn to love our own self-worth & we attract more goodness too…๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

So be grateful and thankful for all that you have and value all that you are… Love & honor your own self-worth cause you’re a beautiful shining star!!! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–

Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

Remember Setting Boundaries Is Perfectly OK

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’–

I’ve always been a blunt person and have always said what I mean and mean what I say… And I can totally admit that I can tend to be brutally honest when it comes to certain things…

Yet I’ve never ever had time for people that beat around the bush or when someone asks my opinion they turn around and get all butt hurt when I express how I feel about what they asked me about ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿค”

Whiners are a huge pet peeve of mine…

I get that we all hear, see and process things differently and I get that we all need to vent, yet vent about it then do something about it..

Don’t sit there and whine or bitch about it constantly… Get it off your chest then find a solution…

No matter what it is… Period!!!…๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿคจ

My point in all this is:

There’s certain things we need to set boundaries for and it doesn’t matter what it’s about… It can be as simple as someone asking your opinion about a certain subject…

Setting boundaries are a safety precaution for yourself..

Just like saying NO…

You don’t have to explain yourself when you’re doing what you want to do.. Especially when the boundry you set is for protecting YOU!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰..

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

๐Ÿ’ฅBIG ANNOUNCEMENT SEE PICS๐Ÿ’ฅ
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’ve been approached by a few companies on Instagram that have asked me to be an ambassador for their company and products & up until now I have declined!

Mainly because for me to do it, I have to fully believe in the companies mission and products! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰

You all know that I don’t do shoutouts for anyone or anything I don’t believe in, that I’m a sticker queen and have dedicated the front and the whole back of my bus for stickers I love and especially stickers that have the same mindset and mission that I do…

ESPECIALLY cause I’ll be traveling all over the USA and I will not advertise any sticker and or company I don’t believe in!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Well….A while back I started following @awakethesoul on Instagram.. I loved their name & mission so I got 2 of their t-shirts and 2 stickers and when I did I posted about it because the note they enclosed with the stuff I got touched my heart๐Ÿ’“..

Well my friends… I’m an ambassador for them now WOO HOO and I’m honestly so excited…

10% of their sales go to supplying water to those in need and they do so much more for our environment and for our world!!!๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฒ And I am honored to be an ambassador for this amazing company!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™.. http://www.awakethesoul.com My point in all this is:

We get so wrapped up in our own lives that we tend to forget about the world around us…

WE ARE ONE and We Are In This World Together!!!

So my friends don’t forget to take time to do something nice for a fellow human being…

Even if it’s just a warm hello and a gentle smile to brighten someones day…

Be Proud Of Every Step You Take

Cause Every Little Step Counts

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—..

This morning while getting everything ready to set up the solar an elderly couple new to the RV park I’m at was walking by staring at the bus and asked me if they could see the inside ๐Ÿ˜..

I smiled and said of course ๐Ÿ˜‰…

They were really curious and asked me if I bought it like it is, which of course made me giggle, so I pulled up the before pics on my phone to show them…

After looking at the pics the woman looked at me and with a huge smile said:

“You should be very proud of yourself young lady!”

And y’all know me lol lol I got all teary eyed which of course made her get all teary eyed too ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—…

I smiled said thank you and they both gave me a hug and said that what I was doing to honor my son was amazing and so beautiful.. ๐Ÿ˜ข and they left…

But it made me think!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

We do tend to wait till the very end to pat ourselves in the back… But we need to remember where we started, then look at where we’re at… Cause every step is a milestone, each step is important too.. so be proud of every step you take, be proud of everything you do!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—…

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Don’t Ever Doubt Your Abilities

There’s So Much You Can Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป..

There’s only 3 major things left to do in the bus..

1.Get it tuned up..

2. Finish installing the solar

&

3. Get the tires installed…

My mechanic who comes to me to do the work on the bus has been crazy busy and because he knew I wasn’t leaving till June 10th his coming to finish the tune up wasn’t really on my mind and then BAM ๐Ÿ’ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

I was in the midst of organizing the bus (a never ending task lol) putting things where I wanted them so I remember where they are lol, packing away winter clothes etc when my phone rang and it was my mechanic ๐Ÿ˜ฏ he was on his way to finish tuning up the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

At first I was excited and then I got highly emotional and started crying… It hit me…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

My new life is truly about to begin…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

The biggest part of my leaving was getting a tune-up and OMG it’s done…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

So many emotions went though my mind and still are yet it made me think about the day I brought the bus home, what it looked like inside and out and what it looks like today and there’s so much for me to be proud of ๐Ÿ˜.

My point in all this is:

Don’t ever downsize your abilities, don’t doubt what you can do.. all your dreams can happen, when you believe in YOU!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

OMG IT’S HAPPENING!

35 days and counting!!!

AHHHHHHH ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

A couple days ago I be posted about following your gut and about my getting new batteries for the bus and it not starting after I installed them ๐Ÿคฌ

I talked about my thinking it was the starter and not the batteries and so yesterday I took out the starter and took it to the parts store to get a new one ๐Ÿค”
The guy at the store was really nice and wanted to test the starter before I had to put out $180 for a new one and AHHHHHHH it tested perfectly fine 4 TIMES ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ

SOOOOOOOOO he tried to troubleshoot the issue with me and as we were brainstorming a light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that the original owner told me I may have to get a new starter solenoid… ๐Ÿค”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid๐Ÿค” my neighbor came over and he helped me test the solenoid and yep yep there was no juice going to it at all…

I replaced the solenoid and BAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ IT STARTED RIGHT UP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Yes I did a happy dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ…

My point in all this is:

Your dreams don’t happen easily, you have to work for it… Just keep going no matter what & DON’T YOU EVER QUIT!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

Now onto the solar ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–
