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€

Slow Down

Enjoy Every Moment


Hello World,

Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… 😱 πŸ™„

All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”..

Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Family Isn’t About Blood

It’s About Connections From Your Heart!

Hello World,

As you all know my second mom passed away last week and although we lost touch for 20 yrs the first 15 yrs and the last 10 yrs we’ve been in touch just about every day. Yet in the last 10 yrs, Katy my bff, my sister, my heart and my rock lost her brother, then I lost my son and now her mom. 

There was no way I wasn’t going to get myself to Atlantic City even if I seriously had to walk to be here for them, as they have always been here for me over my life and as always the universe provided a way for me to fly there on Wednesday… 

I was in contact with Katy’s brother/my brother and we decided to keep it a surprise and not let Katy know… Katy lives in Paris and for 10 yrs we have been trying to get together, yet one thing or another kept preventing it.. not this time.. and to explain the emotion when we saw each other would be impossible… Yet although this wasn’t the reunion we had planned due to her mom passing… It has been a reunion like no other and I wanted to share it with you!!! 

Seeing friends and family that I grew up with that I haven’t seen in 30 years has been incredible… Brian and Keith my brothers, Andre the love of my life and Julio whom I love so very much and not a day has gone by in the past 30 yrs where I haven’t thought about them. Meeting my gorgeous neices Asia and Miranda and making new friends that are actually more family now Bonnie, Mary, Carl, Lori and reminiscing about the old days, making plans for new times and adventures and reconnecting with those I have and will always love is a feeling that I cannot explain and a feeling that will be in my heart forever and beyond. 

So my friends always always appreciate the moments you have and have had… so you’ll never regret the moments you’ve missed. Much love to you all today, forever and beyond!! 

Thank you all for understanding my absence as the funeral was yesterday and although I’m not going home until Wednesday,  I just wanted you all to know that I’m ok and I miss and love you all so very much… Thank you for all your messages, your love, your support and your genuine concern during my absence. YOU ALL truly mean the world to me and I mean that with all of my being β€πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Have a beautiful rest weekend my friends πŸ€—β€

Everything Starts With A Dream

And Dreams Do Come True


Hello World,

This evening I was talking to a friend about the bus and my travel goals and I felt an almost overwhelming sense of AHHHHHHHH πŸ€—πŸ€— 

A feeling that’s almost unexplainable yet at the same time it was a feeling of accomplishment knowing that my dream is coming true right before my eyes β€πŸ€—

Everything we want in our lives start as a dream.. A dream that goes from a wish, to hope, to belief, to determination, to a goal and with work, time and patience our dreams do come true… 

Never ever stop believing in your dreams.. Never ever stop believing in YOU πŸ€—β€πŸ€—
I’m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night.

Our Words Create Our Reality

So Choose Positive Words Every Day


Hello World,

We all have good days and bad days yet it’s up to you to decide on which one… Our words create our reality so pick ones that make your day fun 🌻

Today I’m working on the kitchen part of the bus and so very excited… (Will post pics of it later)

Yet right when we we’re putting the kitchen cabinet in (which was giving us a hard time) my friend says “it’s gonna be impossible!” and it made me stop in my tracks cause nothing is impossible and I made her take the word back… 

Hahaha as soon as she said. “I take that word back”  we got the cabinet in without an issue… Haha so do your best to use positive words all throughout your day… Cause once you start using negative words you just ruined a beautiful day 

Still needing help to get some things I need for the bus conversion. If anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link below is still active and those are really the only things left that I’m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my son’s ashes and heal… The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light β€β€πŸ™πŸ™β€β€
