Is Right Inside Your Heart
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 💖🙏💖
For the past week as I’ve been doing the last few things on the bus, I’ve been reflecting a lot about my past and my upcoming new life and journey and I asked myself when was I the happiest?
Of course the first thing that popped into my head was having my children 🧑🧑👧.. but then I truly couldn’t think of anything that truly made me happy other than my kids 🤔
For most of my life I thought it was outside things that brought me happiness…
I had a a great job, made good money, got my children and myself everything that we wanted, went on amazing vacations etc yet when I really thought about all that, none of it made me truly happy…
What did make me happy was the laughs, the times we went camping and laughed so hard we cried. Cuddling on the couch watching movies…Watching them grow up, graduating from school etc and seeing them play, laugh and smile…
Those were truly the happiest times of my life and continue to be 💖🤗💖…
The little things that make you FEEL!!💖
So my friends do not look outside yourself to find your happy place… Happiness isn’t a destination it’s not a marathon race!!
So if you want true happiness the place you need to start… It truly within yourself cause happiness comes from your heart!!! 🤗💖🤗
Have A Happy Day World
Goodnight Universe 🌟💖🌟
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🌻💖🌻
A couple days ago I be posted about following your gut and about my getting new batteries for the bus and it not starting after I installed them 🤬
I talked about my thinking it was the starter and not the batteries and so yesterday I took out the starter and took it to the parts store to get a new one 🤔
The guy at the store was really nice and wanted to test the starter before I had to put out $180 for a new one and AHHHHHHH it tested perfectly fine 4 TIMES 🤬🤯🤬🤯🤬
SOOOOOOOOO he tried to troubleshoot the issue with me and as we were brainstorming a light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that the original owner told me I may have to get a new starter solenoid… 🤔
So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 😉😁.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything 😫
Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid🤔 my neighbor came over and he helped me test the solenoid and yep yep there was no juice going to it at all…
I replaced the solenoid and BAM 🔥💥 IT STARTED RIGHT UP 😁🤸💃😁
Yes I did a happy dance 💃🤸💃🤸💃…
My point in all this is:
Your dreams don’t happen easily, you have to work for it… Just keep going no matter what & DON’T YOU EVER QUIT!!! 💃😁💃😁💃
Now onto the solar 😁😁
Have a beautiful day world 💖
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
This morning I woke up smiling really big.. not sure if it was from a dream I had or just because…
Yet whatever the reason it reminded me that we all need to wake up smiling…
There truly is nothing that can “make” you start your day in a shitty mood cause how you start your day is totally in your control…
It doesn’t matter if the kids are screaming, you’re running late, the weather sucks or your stuck in a massive traffic jam.. nothing controls your day but YOU …
No matter what!!! 😉🤗😉..
So my friends…
Don’t forget to start your day with a great big smile… Screaming kids and traffic jams only last a little while…
Don’t forget to pause and breathe if things don’t go your way… Remember that YOU’RE in control…
Now Go Have A Beautiful Day 🤗💖
They Are What Matters Most
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗😀
Ok so yesterday I received a couple things I ordered on Amazon for the bus and talk about funny….
When I went up to the office to pick them up.. I was dancing around like a little kid and the manager asked me what I got that was making me so happy and silly dancing around like a little kid 🤗💖🤗
At first I wasn’t going to show her and then decided why not and opened the big box in front of her…
Well I guess it was a good thing cause she started laughing so hard that she was literally crying which of course made me laugh really hard and then another lady came in… She asked why we were laughing so hard.. We told her and of course she lost it too..
I looked at both of them after we calmed down a bit and said….
“You know you’re a tad touched when you receive a order you placed, you’re dancing around like a kid in a candy store and it’s a toilet!”🚽💃see pics ⬇️
Of course I was happy to receive my USA sticker for the back of the bus too but the toilet is a game changer 😂😂
Now for most people that’s not anything major 🤔 but for me OMG… It’s HUGE…
Imagine boondocking in the middle of nowhere with no bathroom..😫
Being that I am much older than most van lifers lol… Those middle of the night potty breaks…🙄
It would not be too fun going outside behind a bush in the middle of nowhere, in the dark at 3am 🤣😂 my luck I’d forget toilet paper and grab a poisen ivy leaf 😫😂
So my friends…
Don’t forget the little things that always make you smile… Cause it’s always the little things that make life worthwhile 🚽💃😂🤪😂💃🚽..
Have a wonderful day world 💖
Get You Where You Need To Be
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖
When I first got the bus I was all determined to get it totally converted in a month or two max… Haha haha well we know that didn’t happen cause 7 months later and I’m still doing things to it 🤔🙄
Not that it’s a bad thing at all cause I’m actually glad that I’m taking my time so that hopefully there won’t be too many changes needed once I hit the road… 😉
I’ve been making jewelry and working with polymer clay for a long time and I’m one that needs to know where everything is and very organized when it comes to all my crafty”stuff” and storing tools and supplies in see-through stackable shoe boxes always helped in that manner… 😉😀😉
Well knowing that I wanted to bring that “stuff” with me in the bus so I have things to do on my down days.. I was going bonkers trying to figure out how to stack them in a place that was easily accessible so I didn’t hurt my back trying to get to them and in a way that they wouldn’t fall all over the place while I drive 🤔🤔🤔
I tried so many things and was getting so frustrated and truly felt defeated..so I put it on the back burner for a while and this weekend it was like a light blub went off in my head…
I have all this room under my bed since I moved the fridge and two ways to access stuff under there…
So I built a bookshelf and woo hoo perfect solution lol… See pics ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
My point in all this is that we get so wrapped up in the big picture and looking at the end result that we can lose our motivation and feel defeated… Sometimes all we need to do is step back, take a break and the answers will come… 😉😀😉..
Go figure huh…
Have a great night world 💖
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗.
This morning I was reading an article about a corporation in India that actually has scheduled meditation breaks for all their employees and it made me wonder why we don’t do that too🤔🙄
When we go to work we may get breaks yet do we really take them to stop and breath or do we take them to chit chat, go run an errand or not take them at all and just continue working?🤔
We rarely balance out our week cause we are so accustomed to just working working working and we wonder why by mid week we can’t wait for the weekend to get here and by Friday we’re burnt out😥…
hmm makes no sense huh?!?
So my friends..
Don’t forget to balance your week with a little bit of play time too.. it will make your week a lot better and it’s good for your mind and body too 😏
Have a beYOUtiful week world 💗
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗
It always makes me giggle when I’m on a roll doing something, make plans to totally finish it the next day and then mother nature says…
When I worked in corporate America, I always had to go go go and wouldn’t stop until I was done…
Which always stressed me out and wore me out as well..😩😩
Since I got the bus home and made a solid decision to take my time and do it right, it never fails that whenever that go go go side pops up, mother nature and the universe do something that makes me have to slow down and take a break 😂😂
Yesterday I didn’t stop with the taping and painting on the bus all day long… It was a beautiful day and that go go go side of me flared up big-time…
By the end of the day my shoulders and arms were so sore that all I did was make a salad for dinner and plopped into bed…
The whole time thinking that today I was not gonna stop until it was finished… 🙄🙄🙄…
Woke up this morning to torrential rain that hasn’t stopped…
So I guess it was mother nature’s way of making me take a break hahaha so don’t forget to stop and take a little break or two.. cause anything that must get done will get done when it needs too 😏🙃😏..
Have a beautiful day world 💗
