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…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

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… πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯.

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 πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ€”

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!!πŸ€—πŸ€—.

Have a beautiful day world πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

What Lies Ahead Is More Important

Then What We Left Behind

People Will Be People

No Matter What You Say or Do


Hello World

“Sometimes it’s not the people that change… It’s their mask that falls off!” ~Unknown Author 

I’m not sure why it always amazes me when people act out of sorts… I’m always me and I’ve been the same all my life! Yet when people do a total 360Β° I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. πŸ˜΅πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜±

This morning as I was doing my morning reading, I came across the above quote and it hit me hard because I’m actually going through that with a couple people that live where I do.. I do believe that people come and go into our lives for a reason.. 

Whether it be for a lesson or for life yet I don’t understand how people can be one way one minute and flip like a coin the next… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

My biggest pet peeve is a two-faced person.. Maybe it’s because I’m so up front.. Maybe it’s because I’m too trusting and see the best in everyone.. Maybe it’s because I have a huge heart and am a giver… Maybe it’s because I’m an adult and don’t sugar coat shit.. I’m NOT Willy Wonka… 😠😑😠…

I use to have no problem confronting someone and was never afraid of confrontation yet throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s not worth my peace of mind or energy to engage in high school he said she said nah nah nah nah nah games..Yet it still at times gets to me 😩

Moral of this story: People will be people no matter what we say or do… Just be yourself and walk away don’t let others negativity get to you!!!!

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

Believe You Can

And You Will


Hello World

This morning I woke up thinking about the bus and how far I’ve come and It made me smile really big at all the work I’ve done☺

I started to think about all the times I started to lose faith and belief and I thought about all of the people that helped me keep the faith and believe that my dreams would come true and it is happening right before my eyes πŸ˜€πŸ’—πŸ˜€.

So many times I wanted to give up and it’s truly with determination, the support of so many beautiful souls that believed in me when I didn’t,  people that held me up when my faith started to waiver and truly believing that kept me going and wow my dream is literally right around the corner!!! πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—..

Moral of this story: 

Whenever your faith starts to waiver and you stop believing in you.. Hold on tight to faith and believing cause that’s what makes dreams come true!πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—

Have a beautiful day world πŸ€—

Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

You’re Uniquely You


Hello World

The last couple days have been a tad crazy with hurricane warnings, flash floods and tropical storm winds and rain yet I am a-ok after battening down the hatches..πŸ™‹.

Today I wanna talk a little about comparing things we do to how others do things. 

I’ve had many people send me links to videos of others that are converting buses or vans for living in and although I love getting them, seeing what others do to theirs and getting ideas and inspiration, I noticed that I started to compare myself to what others are doing and in the long run that’s really not a good thing to do. πŸ€”πŸ™„

My bus is my bus and I love the fact that I’m doing it the way I want to… And I’m sure after I get on the road I’ll want to add or remove things as I need to yet for now I’m doing it exactly how I want too for me, myself and my dogs lol… 

There are so many people out there today that are converting a bus or a van to travel in and some to live in… Some have sold their homes and belongings etc and have the finances to make some amazing vans and bus conversions and yet I’m NOT doing this as a fad or because it’s trendy to do.. πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

I’m NOT doing this to become a blogging sensation or to get the most followers on IG, Facebook or YouTube… I’m doing it to honor my son and myself, I’m doing it to live in and be able to travel to all the places I want to see and sprinkle my sons ashes as I promised him I would… and most importantly I’m doing this to heal from losing my son and to learn and find what I want to do for the rest of my days as an empty nester and I’m doing this all on my disability income which trust me is NOT a lot yet it IS doable and the only way I can see the country as I want too… FREE to do,  go and see as I choose to!! No apartment or house just freedom to come and go as I please… to show others that have or are going through what I am that you CAN live your dreams and you can live again after a devastating loss and you can be happy… YOUR WAY!!! 

Not many people get it or understand why, yet it’s not their life it’s mine and as a very good friend of mine said… 

“You’re going to be camping for a long time living your dream… You’re not going glamping for the weekend, make it basic and functional for YOU!” 

And that’s exactly what I’m doing! I know I’m going to hit bumps and obstacles and that’s OK… I still get to live my life on my terms any way and anywhere I choose. 
We all do things differently and that’s what makes us unique… As long as we are doing and or trying our best that’s all that matters…Because your very best is totally different than another’s very best… Cause your best is totally unique to YOU!!! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜Ž..

Stay true my friends and be YOU!!!

Kindness Is Magic

It Doesn’t Cost A Thing


Hello World

Today was a very emotional and somewhat overwhelming day… I wish I could show you all the text I received from someone I met on IG through my writing…I’ve never met her personally yet when she needed someone to talk to I was there, not because I had too and not for any other reason other than she needed a shoulder, an ear and to hear that it’s ok to feel, it’s ok to be sad and it’s ok to cry A LOT..  cause crying cleanses the soul and one day laughter will heal it … And the text I received today out of the blue was from her reminding me of our talk and how much it helped her through a very trying time in her life…  β€

My point in saying this is to remind everyone that kindness matters so much… Sometimes just an ear to listen or a shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on is all someone needs and it can truly change someones life… πŸ™β€πŸ™

There is so much hate and cruelty in the world today… BE that friend, be that person, be that shoulder or ear… Not because you have to.. Because you care and because our world desperately needs it…and one day so may you!!! It truly is through kindness and love that one by one we WILL change our world!!!  

Goodnight World.. 

Much love,  kindness and peace to you all
