Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

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 ๐Ÿคฌ

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 ๐Ÿค”
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 ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ

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… ๐Ÿค”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid๐Ÿค” 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 ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ IT STARTED RIGHT UP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Yes I did a happy dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ…

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!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

Now onto the solar ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

When You Second Guess Yourself

You Stop Believing In You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Remember when you were in school and had to take a test… Before you handed it in you went back and changed a couple answers you weren’t sure about only to get the test back and the first answer you picked was correct but you second guessed yourself so you wound up getting the answer wrong!!!

Yeah gotta love when we do that right lol lol… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

Well for the past two days I was trying to figure out the best way to access my closet in the bus cause since I moved the bed, getting to my clothes was a tad difficult so instead of doing what I originally thought of I wound up rearranging everything only to wind up going right back to my original idea which totally wasted a whole day of work ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ..

I guess my point in all this is that we tend to second guess ourselves a lot and all we are really doing is not believing in ourselves… Not trusting in how we really feel in the first place ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

So my friends don’t second guess yourself cause what & how you feel in your heart is true… When you second guess yourself you stop believing in you!!! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜”…

Have a beautiful day world โค๏ธ

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—

Taking Breaks Are Healthy

They Do A Body and Mind Good


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Why is it that when we want to take a break from something we tend to feel guilty for doing so? ๐Ÿค”

We are programmed to Go Go Go and we wonder why we either break down or wind up getting the F### It’s.. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™„

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 ๐Ÿ˜

So give yourself permission to take a break or two… It will help you get more focused and it’s actually good for you!!!๐Ÿ˜.

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—

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’—

Black Friday

The Craziest Day Of The Year


Hello World 

Ok so why on earth do people make today the craziest day of the year?? I participated in Black Friday sales one time and I swore I’d never do it again and I haven’t!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฑ

The first thing I saw online when I woke up this morning were articles about people getting trampled on, arrested and sent to the hospital because of a certain item on sale in Walmart and I was like REALLY????? 

Is anything on earth really worth getting hurt or hurting another to get??? Hmmmmm???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

The holidays are supposed to be a happy time, a time of giving, a time of sharing and a time of showing gratitude to and for those we love… 

Yet the media and stores make it a day of competition and that too me is totally the opposite of what the holiday is supposed to be about!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”..

For all of you that participate in this crazy negative pumped up day.. More power to you… 

Yet please try to remember what the holiday season is supposed to be about and be careful cause no gift is so important that you have to fight tooth and nail to get…. 

Today is just another day of the year so breath for goodness sake!!!

Have a calm and beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

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’—
