Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything ๐Ÿค”…

So I want you all to do me a favor…๐Ÿ˜

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š

Have a beautiful weekend my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—…

Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???๐Ÿค”

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout ๐Ÿ˜ต Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..๐Ÿ˜•

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Give Yourself Permission

To Do Whatever You Want To Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a list of things I wanted to do and had all intentions of posting my Hello World post… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yet after I made my coffee I decided I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing and so I didn’t ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€

Around noon I started feeling a tad guilty for being totally lazy, knowing I had plenty of stuff I could be doing and that’s when it hit me!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Why the hell should I feel guilty for wanting to sit on my ass and not do a thing?

Did I have any pressing things that really needed to get done that day?

NO…

Was my sitting on my ass preventing someone else from getting something done?

NO…

So why did I feel guilty for wanting to have a do nothing day? ๐Ÿค”

It’s because we are programmed to go go go, do do do and not stop till we get stuff done!!!

SOOOOO NOT OKAY!!! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 

Our bodies and our mind need relaxing and playtime too.. Don’t allow your head to make you feel guilty when you want to… Give yourself permission to relax or to play..Remember you are worth having a do whatever you want too day ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a fantabulous do whatever you want to day ๐Ÿ’—

Crazy Is A Good Thing

It Helps You Reach Your Dreams

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

I never could wrap my head around why people will tell you that you’re crazy to believe you can reach your dreams ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.. 

Do they say it because they don’t have the same dreams or wish they did? Do they say it because they are jealous? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I was talking to a few people about the 205 places I want to see in my bus and all the of them said I was crazy to think I could hit that goal and that it was an unrealistic and unobtainable goal especially on my disability income ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜  

I actually laughed hard… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

First because I know many people that live the van life on half of what I get each month and second because I truly believe that everything is obtainable when you believe and do what it takes to accomplish it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„

So my friends… 

Don’t ever allow others to deter you from following your dreams…  

When someone says you’re crazy… Smile and say that’s true.. And when your old and have lived your dreams you can say that being crazy worked for you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜.

Have a beautifully crazy fun day world ๐Ÿค—

Moving Past Your Comfort Zone

Isn’t Hard As It May Seem


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

This morning when I woke up I couldn’t get the thought of moving past my comfort zone out of my head ๐Ÿค” and it made me wonder if there’s anything that is really holding me back from embarking on my bus living journey?๐Ÿค”

 Other then a few little things I need to do to the bus.. There really isn’t anything other than myself from stopping me. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

I’m fully aware that this is a big life change as well as it being something I’ve never done, especially alone, yet it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.. and that’s when I really realized that the only thing that can stop us from living our goals and dreams is truly how we think about them ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Doing all the footwork to make our dreams happen is the easy part… 

Yet once you’re only a few steps away from achieving them is when the fear and doubt really surfaces.. 

You have to totally change your mindset and not only believe that you can do it… You have to be totally willing to step past that comfort zone and take that leap of faith. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„.

Don’t allow the little voice in your head to stop you from living your dreams… Cause changing what the little voice says isn’t as hard as it seems… 

So go ahead release those fears it’s time for you to try… Move away from your comfort zone… Spread your wings and fly ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

A Smile Can Change Everything

A Smile Is From The Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

The last few days have been difficult for me… Trying my best not to fall into a depressed funk from missing my son badly and just lots of things on my mind.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜–

Yet today I was at the little country store where I live and there was the cutest little baby sitting in it’s stroller staring at me…

As soon as I made eye contact with him, he gave me the biggest smile and of course it made me smile big right back…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 

I asked his mom how old he was and she said he was almost 5 months… I complimented his beautiful smile and then the oddest thing happened… ๐Ÿ™„

As I went to walk away he started crying๐Ÿค”I kept walking and his cries got louder… 

So I had to walk back and as soon as he saw me he stopped and smiled huge…I smiled back and giggled and went to walk away and omg he started screaming again hahahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚..

His mom and I laughed cause every time I tried to walk away he started screaming…… 

His Mom asked me if I wanted to hold him and so of course I said yes and OMG as soon as I put him in my arms he started laughing hard… Which of course made me and his mom laugh and she said he’s never ever done that… 

Why he did I don’t know yet I walked them out to her car, put him in his car seat gave him a kiss on his forehead and said… Thank you little man.. You just made my day ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—…

He smiled huge and this time didn’t scream when I walked away…๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค”.

Now I’m not sure why that happened and yet I do believe it was a sign from the universe letting me know my son is ok or maybe a sign from my son … 

Yet more than anything I do know that the power of a smile cause truly change your mood… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

So my friends don’t forget to smile today at everyone you see… Cause a little smile can change the world and make it a beautiful place to be ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜.

Love It

Live It


Hello 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… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

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????๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

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…๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

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!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

Have a fantabulous day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป
