And The Different Roles We Play
Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 🤗🌻🤗
I bumped into a friend at the store the other day and we started talking about the different roles we play on a daily basis and it made me think about how true that is 🤔🤔..
There’s a huge difference between wearing a mask to hide who you really are or wearing one to be who you really aren’t than when you’re playing a role that is a necessary part of who you are!
When my kids were little I use to tell people all the time that I’m a different mom for each kid…
My kids were spread apart.. my oldest is 6 yrs older than my middle son and 10 yrs older than my youngest… When my oldest was in 6th grade my middle one was in kindergarten and my youngest was 4 yrs younger than my middle one and in day care… Sooo I had to be play a different role with each of them…
Yes I still was mom but I had to be different because of their ages 🤔🤔🤔
When I went to work, the mom role was turned off until I got home.. I was a different person at different times throughout my day and different according to where I was… Yet I wasn’t wearing a mask to hide who I was at anytime 🤔😮..
My point in all this is:
We are different people all the time..
We are different towards our kids than we are to our coworkers, we are different with our bff than we are too someone we meet for the first time and that’s ok cause it’s part of WHO we are..
Yet wearing a mask to disguise who you really are isn’t healthy or ok cause it’s not being real!
So my friends know the difference between the two cause we play different roles every day.. but if you putting on a mask to hide who you are.. that is not ok 😮…
So Be Grateful For All You’ve Got
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
Every morning when I open my eyes the first thing I do is look out the window to see what the weather is like, I look up to the sky, say thank you, say good morning to my fur babies and go about my daily routine 😉
It’s something I’ve always done and a few weeks ago when I started growing the herbs for the bus, I added saying good morning, misting and watering them to my morning routine so I wouldn’t forget to do it … 🤗
The weather was never one that bothered me or made my day yucky cause that’s something I definitely don’t have control of plus I love the rain (it doesn’t show where I live but I always liked it too)
This morning after doing my daily routine I felt an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude and I couldn’t help but think about all the things I am truly grateful for🤔
I thought about how grateful we all should be as soon as we open our eyes in the morning ❤️🙏❤️
Now I’m not by any means religious yet I do believe in a power greater than myself.
For some that may be God and for some that may mean the universe as a whole..
Yet for me I do believe in the power of positivity and the power of gratitude…
When we are positive we are surrounded by positivity and when we are truly grateful we tend to receive more to be grateful for…
It’s the law of attraction which I do fully believe in 🤗❤️🤗
So my friend remember that every day is a blessing, it’s a gift that’s been given to you… Always be grateful for what you have… Be grateful for another new day too! 🤗🤗
Happy First Day Of Spring 🌸❤
That Tell You What You Can and Cannot Do
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗
People drive me crazy…
Why on earth do some people feel they have the right to tell you what you can and cannot do????
It seriously pushes my buttons big-time!!! 😫😠😡..
Everyone I know knows about the van living life I’m about to embark on, they all know I’m a tree hugging, dirt loving nature freak and they all know I’m disabled too 🤔
Yet why on earth would anyone try to tell anyone that because of a disability or weight issue that they shouldn’t or can’t do something they love… like hiking??? 😠..
Yes I’m disabled… Yes I have rods that hold up my big old head because I have no vertebrae in my neck, yes I have limited mobility in my neck and spine because of having to have 12 spine surgeries… Yes I have MS and although I don’t have a weight issue, I’ve been sitting on my ass since my son passed away and I am way out of shape…
But what’s that got to do with what I want to do and enjoy doing?
It drives me insane when people ASSUME that just because someone may have a disability, may have a weight issue or are out of shape that they can’t do certain things…
There’s no size limit to hiking and there’s no signs that say if you’re disabled you cannot hike this trail…
WTF PEOPLE!!! 😠..
So I decided that after receiving my stickers from a couple accounts that I follow on IG @unlikelyhikers & @mtnchicks (that I will proudly put on my van 😉)…I was gonna do a shout out to all the people out here that think or have been told that they can’t do things they want to do because others think they can’t or because they are disabled or are not in tip top shape..
DO IT ANYWAY!!!
If it’s something you love doing, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t..
Sooooo don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do… Go out and do whatever it is that you truly want to do!!!💗😉💗…
It’s Empowering To Be You
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
Yesterday I was reading an article about how people tend to have a “Blank Check” personality and especially women.. and it really hit home with me then later in the day a little boy that I babysit told me he loves me cause I’m always the same Auntie Ricci 🤔🙄🤔..
We all do tend to have different personalities yet why???
We are different at work then we are at home… We’re different when we go shopping than we are when we go out on the town… We’re different with our friends in person than we are with online friends…
We tend to put different masks on many times throughout the day and although I know our actions must match the situation, we don’t have to change “Who” we are, yet we do.
I will be the first to say I have a sailors mouth haha yet I also know when to let it flow and when to curb it..
Yet I am still the same Ricci whether I’m using my sailors mouth or not 🙄..
My point is…
Just like a flower doesn’t compare itself to others in the field..
Always be who you truly are cause it’s empowering to be real!! It doesn’t matter what others think or what they say or do… The most amazing thing you can do for yourself is to always be true to you!!😁
Have a fantabulous day world 💗
This weekend I was hanging out with some friends and their children and I asked the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up… 🤔🤔🤔.
One of them said she wants to be an oceanographer to help save our oceans (which of course made me and her mom smile big) and then the little boy said he wanted to be a trash collector with a big huge truck to clean up all the trash on the beaches (which made me smile too) but his mom immediately said: “No you can’t do that, you should be a doctor to help people instead!” Hmmmmm????🤔😮🤔
Yep that opened a huge debate session cause it really bothered me that she didn’t support what he wants to do…
I never understood why anyone would try to force someone to do something they don’t want to do yet it happens all the time…
And that’s why I wrote this poem…
We don’t need permission to do the things we want to do yet there are so many parents out there that will tell their child that they won’t pay for college etc if they don’t do what they want them to do…😩😩
Don’t ever allow anyone to tell you your dreams or goals aren’t good enough or that you shouldn’t do this or that..
If it’s something you think about 24/7 then do it!!!
It’s your life and they’re your dreams so love it and live it!! 💗💗💗
Have a fantabulous day 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 🤔🙄🤔🙄 and if course this poem came to mind… 🙄🤔🙄.
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. 😡🙄😡…
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…😁🤗😁.
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 🌻🌍🌻
Hello My Friends 🌻❤🌻❤🌻❤🌻❤🌻
Yesterday was a crazy day with people panicking about the hurricane which still isn’t anywhere near where I a live yet so many are panicking so I stayed working on the bus and I hid… 🙄🙄 I know it’s scary for many yet I don’t live it’s path and I understand the feelings yet we cannot control mother nature’s wrath.. please try to stay focused be aware and take one moment at a time…. Cause if you don’t stop freaking out your going lose your mind!!! 😱🙄😱
Well I’m almost finished with the kitchen countertop and sink… Just gotta paint it, caulk the sink secure and add the faucets… Yet I’m so excited and proud of myself for taking on this project and overcoming my fear of skill saws lol… I’m still making the window covers yet only have four more to do… I just wanted to share the progress so far as show it all to you ❤🤗❤🤗❤🤗❤
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 to ask that have helped me get this far😀❤🤗.
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 🤗 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.
Have a beautiful rest of your day world 🌻
