Video story instead of a poem cause my head is all over the place ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sooooooooo… It always makes me laugh when people say that I’m so strong for doing this cause it truly has nothing to do with how I feel inside… My strength is what makes me do it and walk through the fear but it doesn’t take away the fact that I’m a freaking basketcase and truly feel like I want to puke…๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ..It’s been 10 long months since I brought the bus home and started working on it and the fact that it’s all done and I’m hitting the road in 3 days truly makes me feel like I wanna puke hahaha… My emotions are all over the place, I can’t eat, my stomach is in knots and I truly wanna scream… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…Sooooooooo… The next few days I’ll just be making sure I’ve got all my ducks in a row and doing my best to breathe ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„ but I wanted to say thank you to all of you that have stuck by me through this crazy journey of building the bus, my tears, my laughs, my everything…

Thank you so very much…I am truly grateful and love you all dearly! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™..

Let the countdown begin!! 3 days AHHHH ๐Ÿคฏ

BUS UPDATE ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Everything Starts As A Dream

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—..
โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ BUS UPDATE PICS โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yesterday my mechanic came over and checked all the brakes and the front are fine but we decided to completely do the back brakes and to my surprise ALL the parts I need to get are under $100๐Ÿ˜

Tuesday I’m getting the parts and he’s going to install everything on Thursday ๐Ÿ˜ฎ which only leaves the tires which I’m getting the following week and she’ll be ready to hit the road!!! ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎOMG 21 DAYS & COUNTING ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

This morning after I took some pics I went back and looked at the before pics and I figured since the inside and outside is completely done, I’d share some Before & After pics ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

I truly can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that in 21 days I’ll be on the road…๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

Of course I got all emotional lol but I started thinking about how everything in life really does start out as a dream

When we’re kids we dream of what we want to be when we grow up…

As we get older we dream about all the things we’d like to do before we get old and can’t do them anymore or as some say and do… we make a bucket list of things we wanna do before we die ๐Ÿค”

Everything we do in life truly does start out as a dream ๐Ÿ’–

Take it from me my friends…

Never ever stop believing in your dreams and do whatever it takes to achieve them..

You have to believe in them to make them come true and the most important thing YOU have to believe in is ๐Ÿ’ฏ% YOU!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Cause when we make the decision to go after that dream and do everything in our power to believe in them and work towards them.. They truly can and do come true!!! ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ™..

Everything in life starts out as a dream & making those dreams come true… Is totally up to YOU! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

Thanks for all your love and support!!

Awake Your Soul and Open Your Eyes

Because We Are All In This World Together

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™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…

We Are in this world together so AWAKE YOUR SOUL …

Kindness doesn’t cost a thing so if we all do our part…

We CAN make our home a better place!!!

All you have to do is AWAKE YOUR SOUL!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–..

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

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

Be Happy Be You

It’s really not that hard

Hello My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Just sitting here playing with different apps because I want to share my journey with you once I get on the road…

My whole page will be changing to reflect the journey I’m about to embark on…

My poems will still be written by me yet the photos will be all mine, showing and reflecting where I am and my thoughts as always. ๐Ÿ˜Š

The journey I’m about to embark on living in a bus, and traveling all over, is not only a new life, new chapter journey, it is also a healing journey, a journey to spread my son’s ashes at all the places we wanted to see..

While honoring him and finding me ๐Ÿ˜Š

My hope is that my journey can help others that have lost a child know that they too can live, love and carry the pain in a different way, a way that doesn’t knock them on their ass like it did to me.

A learning too let go journey…

Not to forget…

But to LIVE…. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– …

Click on the video it’s actually kinda cute haha ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
