Take Time To Simply Be

Stop, Pause, breathe and See The Beauty Around You

Hello World,

Have you stopped to smell the roses today??? 

I don’t mean literally…. I mean by taking a deep breath and pausing ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Pausing long enough to notice all the beautiful little things around you…. Like the random act of kindness you noticed from afar… The smile you received from a stranger that helped change the mood of your day.. The giggles and laughter coming from your child’s room…The purring from your cat or the love in your dogs eyes when they see you… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜

The kind of pause that allows you to take in all the positivity around you and dismisses any negativity you may have felt earlier ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—

Stop what you’re doing…Take a deep breath and pause….Life is truly beautiful when you stop to see it, hear it, feel it and enjoy it… Life is truly beautiful when you stop, breathe deep and pause…

Moments Make Memories

Memories Make The Story Of Your Life

Hello World,

Don’t take life so seriously that you forget to live your life fully… We get so wrapped up in or daily routines that we tend to forget to stop and smell the roses, we forget to see the beauty that surrounds us every day… We forget to fully live and love our daily lives, love what we do and love who we truly are… We forget about the little things that make us smile each and every day ๐Ÿค”โค๐Ÿค”

Take time to embrace and enjoy every moment of every day, take time to stop and smell the roses, take time to simply be… Cherish every moment of every single day for it’s the moments that make all the memories and those memories make up your life story… Enjoy each moment, make tons of memories and love the life you live while living the life that you love ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜

It’s Okay To Be Different

It’s Okay Because You’re Unique

Hello World,

Today was an amazing day and I hope yours was too โค๐Ÿ˜โค

Today I spent the day with a few friends here at the campground and we were talking about what we liked the most about each other as a game so to speak and they literally made me all emotional because they said what they liked about me is that I’m always me, funny, goofy and that I’m “real… 

They said that there are never any surprises with me and I wear my heart on my sleeve…Then one of them said I was like a rainbow for her…always making others feel bright when they are having a hard day even through the  sadness I go through daily missing my son. 

I truly didn’t expect that cause I haven’t known them long and right after I smiled and said thank you I looked up in the sky and there was the most beautiful rainbow and yep I lost it… ๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ข

MY pics they aren’t the best yet it was amazingly bright and came out of nowhere…

Moral of this day for me… ALWAYS BE YOU… No matter what… Cause that’s what people truly see

Resiliency Comes From Recovery

When We Don’t Refresh We Break

Hello World,

Hustle hustle hustle that’s what we’re taught to do… We were never taught to take a break and that’s not good for you! ๐Ÿ˜ž

To be strong and resilient we’ve got to stop and refresh… Cause if we don’t eventually our lives become a mess!!!๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜•๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Take some time this weekend to put your work away… Spend some time to enjoy yourself and refresh for a couple of days๐Ÿ˜Š

 ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒž Have a beautiful weekend my friends ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒป

Emotions Are Temporary

Feelings Are Not


Hello World,

Emotions and feelings are two different things although they can feel the same… Emotions are usually temporary and rarely last to long… Feelings can last forever and are always very strong ๐Ÿ˜ข

We tend to make decisions when our emotions are off the chart… Then we tend to regret what we said cause it came from our emotional mind not our heart โค

Try not to make any decisions when you are really mad or upset… Cause words are very powerful and you might say something you’ll later regret!

Today was very emotional for me and it’s been a hard couple of weeks.. It’s 48 days away from the day my son passed away in my arms and my emotions and feelings have been off the chart. 

You all know my story and what I’m trying to do and today a very special person and someone I hold deep within my heart helped me get closer to my dream. I now only need $328 more to pay the mechanic and be able to continue the journey I promised my son I would do…

Please help if you are able because i cannot do this alone or share the link below so I can continue the journey to spread my sons ashes, continue living and healโ€ฆ I AM ready

Be Careful Of Your Expectations

Nobody Does Things Just Like You


Hello World,

Today while I was scrolling through IG I saw a very good friends @dope.aspirations post that made me really think about the expectations we put on others without even realizing we are doing it. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Even little things… Like asking your kids to fill the dishwasher and then getting upset with the way they did it! Did they fail you… NOOOO.. They just didn’t do it like YOU would have and that’s an expectation! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Be careful of what you expect from others because no one can really fail you, they can only do things as they do. Nobody fails intentionally and nobody does things just like you!

Don’t Take Anything For Granted

It’s The Little Things We Forget

Hello World,

We tend too take things for granted and not realize how some of things we do on a daily basis affects others… It could be something we do without realizing it, or something that is so habitual that we don’t even realize we do it yet it’s something big to someone else…. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Last night was the first time I didn’t post a goodnight post because I had a lot on my mind and this morning when I woke up I had over 26 messages from people here, on FB and on my blog asking me of I was ok and it truly surprised me…. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

When I started posting my poems and my quotes, I was doing it like a journal to write down my thoughts, little reminders to myself and to help me heal from the loss of my son… I didn’t ever think that my thoughts would have the effect on others as it has and I had an overwhelming feeling of gratitude and it showed me how important it is to not take anything we say or do for granted. ๐Ÿ˜Š

It reminded me that as much as we may think or feel that what we say or what we do doesn’t affect others…. It does…. What we may be going through, others may be going through too… It helped me see that none of us are ever alone โค

Don’t ever take anything you do or say for granted cause even a warm hello, a simple smile or a positive goodnight post may be small to you, yet could be a life changer for someone else.. ๐Ÿ˜Š
