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—

Setting Boundaries Is Healthy

Saying NO Is Too


Hello World, 

Setting boundaries isn’t always easy especially when it comes to family and people you’ve known for a really long time… 

It requires you to say NO NO NO without guilt filling your mind…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

I’ve always been a giver, it’s just who I am.. Yet learning to say no without feeling guilty was one of the hardest things for me to do… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

NO truly is a complete sentence and yet for some reason we tend to want to explain our reasons for saying NO… 

They say we don’t owe anyone an explanation when we say NO… Yet why does it feel so yucky or mean when we don’t give an explanation???

hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Setting boundaries and saying NO shows that you know your limits of what you will and will not do… and your boundaries will be different towards different people too.. 

So don’t get mad or judge when people say NO to you… Cause setting boundaries is healthy and important for your peace of mind too!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Happy Birthday Brandon

A Mom’s Love

Hello World  

I dedicate this beautiful day to my oldest son….. 

There truly are no words to express the love a mother has for her children… We carry them for 9 months, we nurture them and watch them grow… And although we try to do what’s best for them.. We truly never know how they will turn out… Cause There is no book or perfect plan… On how to teach your son to be a man… 

I’ve made mistakes as we all do… Yet to see you all grown up, to see how you’ve grown up from that silly little boy to a man I am so very proud of… Fills my heart …

Happy Birthday Brandon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I sometimes wish that you were still small & not yet big and strong and tall..

For when I look at yesterday..

I close my eyes and see you play..

I often miss that little boy..

Who pestered me to buy a toy..

Who filled my life with pure delight..

From early morn to late at night…

I’ve watched you change…

I’ve watched you grow…

As seasons come & quickly go…

Now you’re all grown up and proud I am…

You’ve grown up and become 

One hell of a man!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Birthday Brandon 

I’ll love you forever

I’ll like you for always

Forever & Always

My baby you’ll be ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Take Care Of Your Body

It’s The Only One You’ve Got

Silly Saturday Video day

Happy “Silly Saturday” World ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ…..

Yeah I did it again… Really need to learn when to stop… Spent the day in the hospital for tweeking my back… Yet this time it wasn’t all my fault ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

There isn’t much that I’m afraid of yet my biggest girly ewwwwwww AHHHHHHH run fast phobia is a snake.. Which of course my daughter who knows that and is always playing pranks on me with rubber snakes knows that oh too well and on Thursday right after I told her my back was hurting cause I lifted something wrong, she sent me the second video and yep out it went lol lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ she didn’t do it on purpose it went out cause I jumped…. It was actually really funny cause I couldn’t stop laughing afterwards๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ..

Needless to say I decided instead of writing a poem today I’d try to make a Snapchat video without laughing and I actually succeeded โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ.. I’ve always called Saturday “Silly Saturday” a day to have fun and be silly and hence the two videos above ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ..

Taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally is so important to do.. So have a “Silly Saturday” and do something you love to do ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ

Have a happy Silly Saturday world ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
