Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road 😯…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me 😒 ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok 😒😒..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Anger Is One Letter Away From Danger

So AlwaysThink Before You Speak

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

It always amazes me when I see someone taking their anger out on others even if it’s not the other person’s fault.. or you walk into the crossfire of someone’s anger or bad day and it becomes your fault…πŸ˜±πŸ€”

I’ve always been one that if I’m angry, having a bad day or just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I tend to isolate.. if I’m depressed or really sad, I tend to isolate…

It’s not because of any reason other than I do not believe in projecting my mood onto anyone else…

Whether mad, sad or depressed.. if I want or need to talk about it I will… if not I’ll stay away until I work it out myself, yet I don’t ever project my yucky mood on anyone else.. especially if it’s not their fault I’m in that type of mood to begin with πŸ™„πŸ€”

Taking your anger or frustration out on anyone isn’t ok…

When I am in the crossfire of someone else’s bad mood, it always reminds me that ANGER is one letter away from DANGER and the only thing that projecting your anger onto someone else does is push the other person away πŸ™„

Anger leads us to saying things that we don’t really feel or don’t really mean to say, and it brings up trust issues too, especially if something is said that you really don’t mean but say in the heat of the moment!

And although actions do speak louder than words, our actions when we are angry usually match the words that we say…

NOT GOOD…😱

So whenever you are angry, remember who or what you’re angry at, think before you say a word… cause some words you can’t take back!!!

Taking Breaks Are Healthy

They Do A Body and Mind Good


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Why is it that when we want to take a break from something we tend to feel guilty for doing so? πŸ€”

We are programmed to Go Go Go and we wonder why we either break down or wind up getting the F### It’s.. πŸ™„πŸ˜±πŸ™„

Our bodies and mind aren’t made to go non stop if they were we wouldn’t need sleep… they both need to take breaks … 

Breaks help us get our strength back and help to clear our mind so we don’t get all cluttered and burnt out 😁

So give yourself permission to take a break or two… It will help you get more focused and it’s actually good for you!!!😁.

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Live Life Optimistically

Allow Life To Simply BE!


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Have you ever had one of those friends that always look at what could happen, or lives on what ifs constantly.. Expecting that this or that could happen.. Planning for the oh shits??πŸ€”πŸ™„.. (key word expecting!!) 

Hmmmmmm??? πŸ€”

I’ve always been optimistic and have always looked at all the good things that I’m going to experience rather than looking for what “could” happen or the “what ifs”… 

It’s not that I think life is a bowl of cherries πŸ’, I just don’t look at the woulda, could, shoulda senarios and if and when something does happen I deal with it as it comes…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ 

The journey and life change that I’m getting ready to embark on is huge and I’m fully aware that shit can happen yet I’m not planning for it…πŸ€”

Living a van life will definitely have it’s ups and downs and Yes I “could” get a flat, Yes the bus “could” break down and Yes I “could” come across a full campground and or be asked to move from somewhere I chose to camp at… 

Yet I definitely don’t plan for those things to happen and I definitely don’t allow those “could happen” and “what ifs” to take up space in my head.. 

If I did I’d never leave my driveway!!! πŸ™„πŸ€”

I choose to live an optimistic life and make plans for everything good.. And when a yucky situation occurs I’ll deal with it as I should… 

Living a pessimistic life is not a life for me… I choose to look for the good in life and allow life to simply BE!!! πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Crazy Is A Good Thing

It Helps You Reach Your Dreams

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ€—

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

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

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 😠😠 

I actually laughed hard… 😁😁

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 πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ™„

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 πŸ˜πŸ™ƒπŸ˜.

Have a beautifully crazy fun day world πŸ€—

Moving Past Your Comfort Zone

Isn’t Hard As It May Seem


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—πŸ€—

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

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

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 πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

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. πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

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 πŸ€—πŸ’—
