To Laugh At Oneself

Is Healthy


Hello World,

Since I threw my back out last week, I’ve had plenty of time to think and of course there’s been frustration, anger and disappointment because I’ve basically been flat on my back in bed for a week not able to do anything but rest (which I don’t do well) yet this morning when I woke up all I could do was laugh…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

I write a lot about taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally yet here I am laying in bed laughing cause I did just the opposite ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Yes it’s much easier to preach than to practice what we preach yet I sat in bed for the past few days being angry at myself for getting myself hurt and frustrated cause I literally can’t do anything yet .. hmmmm??? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

There really isn’t any rhyme or reason to why we are so much harder on ourselves then we are on others yet when we can stop, pause, take a look at the situation and instead of getting angry at ourselves or at the situation we can sit back and laugh… 

That’s when you know your in a good place…

Cause seriously once it’s done it’s done and all we can do is keep on moving forward and do whatever we need to do to get going again ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Don’t allow any setback or situation get you stuck in a yucky place… Stop, pause, breathe and laugh cause laughing truly does heal everything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

It’s Your Journey

It’s YOUR Life


Hello World

Have you ever been so shocked by someone else’s behavior that it truly made you feel like you weren’t sure if it was you or if it was them????? ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

Well that’s exactly what I’ve been going through for the past week.. So much so that I had to take a break from social media to get my head back on straight and take a good look at the situation and process it fully… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

I’ve always been a people person as well as being very spontaneous yet had always worried about what others thought about what I was doing and about myself in general ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ..

It took me a loooonnnnggg time to not worry about what others thought about me, especially when it came to my doing what I needed to do for me and my peace of mind yet as we all look for a little validation, it totally threw me for a huge loop when someone I know (or should I say I thought I knew) stopped talking to me because I haven’t begun my journey in the bus yet! ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

Not being sure if it was them or me because I don’t like disappointing people in general ๐Ÿ˜–

I have never been one that’s afraid of change and I don’t have any problem with being spontaneous .. Yet this is HUGE and being that I am embarking on this journey alone (something else I’ve never ever done) “I” need to know that all my ducks are in a row with the bus and with myself especially emotionally ๐Ÿ˜

The journey in the bus is a huge huge huge life change for me and for the first time in my life I actually want to do it right in every manner.. 

Although it is taking me longer than even I anticipated.. I’m taking my time.. So that when I drive away I’ll know that everything with the bus is mechanically sound and that I am truly emotionally ready to begin my journey to heal from the loss of my son and begin MY new life ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

What others may feel isn’t really relevant because this is my journey and however long it takes me to begin is OK.. 

It’s my journey to take when and only when…. 

I AM READY!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

Divorce Your Past

To Move On To The New


Hello World, 

Yesterday was a very cold and rainy day and as I was painting the counter and shelves it hit me hard that my journey is just a couple weeks away and I lost it๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

I spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how to let go of the sadness and pain because this was supposed to be  and Michael’s journey.. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Although i know he’s with me daily in mind, heart and spirit, I couldn’t get past the fact that his physical isn’t with me and I literally cried all day and cried myself to sleep.๐Ÿ˜ข

I started doubting if I can really travel around alone to all the places he wanted us to see sprinkling his ashes along the way and this morning I woke up with this poem in my head.. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I know it’s going to be a very emotional journey yet I know in my heart and soul that this is meant to be and I believe yesterday was just a OMG IT’S REALLY HAPPENING day and this morning I remembered that I’m not letting go to forget… I’m letting go to move on with my life… 

To live and to begin a new journey, a new chapter in my life and although a tad scary it is time and I am ready. 

Thank you to everyone that has helped me get to this point and for all the love and support received and continue to receive… For you all I am eternally grateful ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

The countdown to my new beginning, my journey to heal has begun! 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’•

Be Kind Whenever Possible

It’s Always Possible


Hello World, 

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right… Choose being kind and you’ll always be right!” ~ Dalai Lama

Growing up my mom always use to say “kill them with kindness” or “you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar!” And of course I had to learn that the hard way as most of us do… 

Yet the older I get the more I see just how true it actually is and not just towards another.. It’s true for my inner peace as well! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

No-one or nothing is worth getting all worked up about.. It disturbs your peace of mind and truly disrupts your whole day… 

So for today instead of reacting negatively back to a yucky situation.. Step back, process it, breathe, smile and kill the situation with kindness.. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel.. 

Cause negativity has no recourse to a positive response! ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’…

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Listen To Your Gut

It Always Knows What’s Up


Hello World

Yesterday I took a break from the bus and decided to work on some crafts… My head was telling me “no work on the bus!” Yet my gut kept saying no… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

I use to make pretty covers for journals,  wish boxes and different frames for my quotes and poems all the time, making them with clay and it was very relaxing and helped me get outta my head… yet I stopped because I felt I lost my creativity mindset and tucked all that stuff away ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yesterday I decided to listened to what my gut said and got out all my clay and sat on the bed in the bus and knocked out 4 pretty boxes for some friends and it actually felt really good to do so and I didn’t work on the bus at all ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰.

Moral of this story: Our gut always sends us signals of what we should or shouldn’t do… So listen to what your gut says cause it won’t ever lie to you!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

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 360ยฐ I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

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… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ …

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

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 ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป
