Bus Update & Upgrade

Dinner Ever Give Up On Your Dreams

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 💖🌻💖

Today I woke up filled with energy and decided to do some upgrades to the inside of the bus. 😁

I removed the wheelchair ramp from the back which gave me two more feet of space, so I unscrewed my bed, pushed it back against the back wall, which allows me to sit on it when the back door is open and look outside 😁 secured it and with the extra 2 feet I decided to build another bench that goes along the whole length of my bed. I put hinges on the tops so I could store stuff inside, covered it with foam and material and woo hoo I’m loving it. 💖.. see pics ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

The bench that my furbaby is on slides out to be a twin bed for guests which I love too. Tomorrow my oldest is going to install the second solar panel and my mechanic is going to fix my exhaust leak Sunday or Monday… So very excited and the inside is done 😁 that is until I decide to change something else hahahaha but basically it is done. Once it’s mechanically sound I’ll be on my way… 💖

Just wanted to give everyone an update on my progress since my upsetting setback a couple weeks ago… Shit happens yet there is nothing that’s going to stop me from living my dream… Perseverance, faith and belief is what makes dreams come true!!

Don’t ever quit my friends 😁💖😁

Have a beautiful day world 💖

Don’t Get Discouraged

When Things Don’t Go YOUR Way

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

After posting about my latest setback with the bus and about my belief about timing…I got a lot of comments about how people admired my tenacity, strength and perserverence as well as my staying positive through it all 🤔

It made me look back on everything that has happened since I brought the bus home and I actually looked back on my whole life 🤔

All my life people have said that I was tenacious and I never really thought about it until today…

I’ve always been a go getter when it comes to something I want and I’ve never ever been a quitter… It’s just not in my nature to do so…

So I guess I am tenacious 😂

Yet for me there is no other way…

I never understood why people give up so easily on their dreams and it’s never ever crossed my mind to do so, especially with this bus project.

My point in all this is:

We all have the drive and the power to achieve whatever we want to achieve…

Perserverence is in our blood…

It’s truly part of our makeup and who we are..

Sometimes we just need to reach deep to find it.. 😉💪😉..

So do not get discouraged when things don’t go your way… Keep on doing what you need to do and go about your day..

Cause life is like an obstacle course with lots of ups and downs.. So don’t let setbacks stop you.. Stay strong and stand your ground!! 💪💖💪

Have a beautiful day world 💖

Always Stay True

Always Be You!!!

Hello World 🌻 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 😮😮

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… 🤔

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!!! 😂😂

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!!! 😁😂😁..

Have a beYOUtiful day world 🌻💖🌻

Value Who You Are

Cause You Are A Shining Star

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 💖🤗💖
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…💖🤗💖…

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!!! 🌟💖🌟💖🌟💖🌟

Have a beYOUtiful day world 💖🌟💖

A Great Big Smile

Can Brighten Your Day

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
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!!! 😉🤗😉..

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 🤗💖

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???🤔

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..😕

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 🙃😏🙃

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends 🤗💗🤗

Like A Seedling Pushing Through The Ground

Patience Is The Key


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗

Not sure why, yet this morning I woke up thinking about how when we are growing flowers in a garden, we get excited about every step as we watch it grow… 

We don’t pull it out of the ground cause we get impatient cause it’s not growing fast enough… 

We savoir the process step by step and nurture it every day… 

Yet when it comes to our dreams and goals… If doesn’t happen fast enough we quit or walk away🤔🙄..

We cannot expect our dreams to happen overnight, 

It’s a process… 

Just like growing anything is, yet we tend to get frustrated and impatient cause we want them to happen NOW!!! 🤔😖🙄..

Nothing in life happens that fast and our dreams take time to flourish just like a flower or tree… 

So enjoy each moment step by step and remember patience is the key!!!
