What Lies Ahead Is More Important

Then What We Left Behind


Hello World 

No matter what the situation is…

No matter what you’ve left behind…

No matter how hard things may get…

No matter how long it takes…

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

Don’t stop… 

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

Your dreams are right in front of you…

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

There’s a reason the rearview mirror is so small πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—

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????? πŸ˜΅πŸ™„πŸ€”.

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… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”…

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 πŸ™„ πŸ˜©πŸ€”πŸ˜©..

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! πŸ˜’πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

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

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 😏

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 πŸ™πŸ’—

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!!! πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

Be Kind Whenever Possible

It’s Always Possible


Hello World, 

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right… Choose being kind and you’ll always be right!” ~ Dalai Lama

Growing up my mom always use to say “kill them with kindness” or “you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar!” And of course I had to learn that the hard way as most of us do… 

Yet the older I get the more I see just how true it actually is and not just towards another.. It’s true for my inner peace as well! πŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”.

No-one or nothing is worth getting all worked up about.. It disturbs your peace of mind and truly disrupts your whole day… 

So for today instead of reacting negatively back to a yucky situation.. Step back, process it, breathe, smile and kill the situation with kindness.. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel.. 

Cause negativity has no recourse to a positive response! πŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’…

Have a beYOUtiful day world πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Know Who You Are

Be Confident Too


Hello World

This morning while I was drinking my morning cup of coffee, I starting thinking about the difference between KNOWING that we can do something and THINKING that we can πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” and there actually is a difference between the two…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„…

Our minds can play tricks on us and when you think we can do something and we go to try to do it. Our minds can put doubt in there and it can halt us in our tracks… When we KNOW we can do something we have the confidence to actually go out and do it without any doubts or fears…. πŸ€”πŸ™„.

Yes HOW and WHAT we think about ourselves and the things we do is extremely important because we are what we think we are… Yet it all boils down to CONFIDENCE… Confidence in WHO we are and CONFIDENCE in WHAT we do… 😁😁.

SOOOOOOOO today be confident in what you’re doing and in who you are… Because once you have the confidence to do and to BE.. Nothing can get in your way…πŸ’ͺπŸ™‹πŸ’ͺ.

…………………

Working on and having running water in the bus again and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and I’m my bio for anyone that can help or please share the link so I can make the goal of being on the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. πŸ€—β€πŸ€— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful β€πŸ™β€β€¦ Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—…

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 I’ve been working so hard on the bus and not taking breaks that this morning I woke up tired and stressed out a little πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

We all want to give 110% yet we can’t do that all day long… Cause when we try to do so, we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

So learn to take a break from things… You don’t have to quit.. just know it’s okay to take a break and rest a little bit…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… So I decided that since it will be like a steam room inside the bus, I’m gonna take a break today and wash the outside cause it needs it badly and I’ll get to play with the water hose hahaha… I definitely need to get the electricity situated inside and now only need $384 to have everything I need, the inverter, batteries and solar kit to run the fridge and the fans, lights at night and a few other things.. my gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help…

I’m so very close and am so grateful for all the love and support from everyone… 

Much love to you all and have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻

Breath Deep, Be Calm, Stay Focused

Cause Panicking Can Get You And Others Hurt


Hello World,

The last couple of days have been crazy with everyone watching hurricane Irma and although I too live in Florida I’m no where near it’s projected path.. Like I’m seriously 400+miles away from it’s path.. 

Yet today I went into town to the grocery store and the frenzied panic in the store made me leave and not get what I went there for. The look of fear and panic on everyone’s face made me realize how crazy people get and how they panic rather than calming down and focusing on what needs to get done  πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„..

When people panic, people get hurt and that’s scarier than the storm…We can’t control mother nature, yet we can control ourselves.. please stay calm and focus on what you need to do so you don’t hurt someone else….πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

I know this storm is scary yet we all now what we need to do… So take a deep breath and please be calm so you don’t hurt yourself and others too!!!πŸ™β€πŸ™

As for me I’m working in the bus and sticking to my goal… The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.πŸ˜€β€πŸ€—

I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. 

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€
