Life Changes

Are Inevitable


Hello World 

For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn’t happen at all ๐Ÿค” 

Until today ๐Ÿ˜ฎ this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Since I brought the bus home and started converting it… Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day… 

Excitement butterflies ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ 

And each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it’s because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

Am I excited? Yes!! 

Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!! 

This is A HUGE life change for me…. Something I’ve never ever done in many ways and yet it’s also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too… Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do… 

So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams… Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you’ll realize it wasn’t as scary as it seemed๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Daily Routine

Doesn’t Have To Be Boring


Hello World 

For the past week being that I was immobile from hurting my back, I’ve had a lot of time to contemplate why we get so easily bored with our lives ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Then this morning it hit me….๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Before the loss of my son and even moreso.. Before I became an empty nester.. my life was pretty cut and dry… Wake up, take a shower, get dressed, have my coffee, get the kids up and ready for school, take the kids to school, go to work, have lunch, go back to work, pick up the kids, make dinner, help with homework, get the kids situated for bed, blah blah blah…๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ 

And that was just Monday thru Friday… On Saturdays I would always have a day of fun with my kids and on Sundays I’d get everything ready for the coming week..๐Ÿค” hmmmmm???? Repetition for years and years and we wonder why we get bored with our lives…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

We all have certain responsibilities yet it doesn’t have to get so repetitive that we wind up being bored…. Living the same humdrum day over and over… 

Mix up your day… Add one thing to your daily routine that you love to do… Take a shower the night before so you have more time in the morning… Plan at least one day a week where you dedicate it to having a no work at all day…a day of fun… Go for a walk, have a picnic at a park… 

Our days don’t have to get boring and repetitive… yet it’s up to us to mix it up… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful mixed up day world ๐Ÿค—

It’s Your Journey

It’s YOUR Life


Hello World

Have you ever been so shocked by someone else’s behavior that it truly made you feel like you weren’t sure if it was you or if it was them????? ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

Well that’s exactly what I’ve been going through for the past week.. So much so that I had to take a break from social media to get my head back on straight and take a good look at the situation and process it fully… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

I’ve always been a people person as well as being very spontaneous yet had always worried about what others thought about what I was doing and about myself in general ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ..

It took me a loooonnnnggg time to not worry about what others thought about me, especially when it came to my doing what I needed to do for me and my peace of mind yet as we all look for a little validation, it totally threw me for a huge loop when someone I know (or should I say I thought I knew) stopped talking to me because I haven’t begun my journey in the bus yet! ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

Not being sure if it was them or me because I don’t like disappointing people in general ๐Ÿ˜–

I have never been one that’s afraid of change and I don’t have any problem with being spontaneous .. Yet this is HUGE and being that I am embarking on this journey alone (something else I’ve never ever done) “I” need to know that all my ducks are in a row with the bus and with myself especially emotionally ๐Ÿ˜

The journey in the bus is a huge huge huge life change for me and for the first time in my life I actually want to do it right in every manner.. 

Although it is taking me longer than even I anticipated.. I’m taking my time.. So that when I drive away I’ll know that everything with the bus is mechanically sound and that I am truly emotionally ready to begin my journey to heal from the loss of my son and begin MY new life ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

What others may feel isn’t really relevant because this is my journey and however long it takes me to begin is OK.. 

It’s my journey to take when and only when…. 

I AM READY!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

This morning while reading my daily motivation I realized that every single one that I’ve read for the past week has been about changes (no such thing as coincidence right lol) ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„..

I (as we know) am embarking on a new chapter in my life and although scary it’s exciting too and while having coffee this morning a friend asked me how it can be scary and exciting at the same time.. ๐Ÿ™„ which got me to thinking and I just smile and said it’s all in how we process it.. Its definitely a mindset thing๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‰

We are all “Masters of Transition” we deal with changes every day… It’s all in how we process them so they don’t get in our way…

Men Have Feelings

It’s OK To Show Them Too!


Hello World

Last night I was talking with a very good friend that was upset because he was always told growing up that a man isn’t supposed to cry! A man isn’t supposed to show his feelings and that it makes him weak if he does! 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

THAT IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST HUGEST MOST GIGANTIC PET PEEVES!!! 

WHY AREN’T MEN SUPPOSED TO SHOW THEIR TRUE FEELINGS?? 

WHY ARE THEY TAUGHT NOT TO SHOW THEM?? 

THEY ARE ALLOWED & THEY SHOULD!!!!!!

I raised my boys to know that it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to show how you feel no matter what and every one of their girlfriends throughout the years loved that part of them and I do too! 

Society sucks in that manner because there is nothing wrong with crying! There is nothing wrong with showing your true feelings.. 

In fact it’s healthy to do so!!! 

Women are told they are too sensitive when we show our emotions and men are taught not to show them!! 

How ass backwards is that????? 

To all the men out there that were told that showing your feeling isn’t OK… BULL!!! 

To all the women out there that are told you’re too sensitive… BULL!!! 

Showing how you feel is showing that you are real… So allow yourself to honour your feelings and allow yourself to be real!!!
