Don’t Get Angry At Little Stuff

Laugh It Off Instead

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends πŸ’–πŸŒ»πŸ’–

So yeah… I picked this picture for the background for my poem cause it’s exactly what happened to me this morning πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Living in a bus definitely has its perks and yet there are a couple downsides too…

Like when you’re in a regular kitchen and your blender lid pops off in mid blend, it usually just makes a mess right where you are…

Butttttttt.. in a tiny space like my bus it goes everywhere cause everywhere is right there πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ bedroom, living room etc πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

This morning I was craving a green smoothie which i don’t usually make for breakfast cause I’m addicted to overnight oats yet I haven’t prepped any overnight oats in a while so I decided to make a smoothie and just as I hit blend my dog barked and scared the crap outta me and yep green smoothie everywhere!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

It was on the ceiling, the counter, my face and all over the window panels but luckily about 2 weeks ago I changed the coverings on the refletix window panels I made to a wipeable contact paper cause the white material I had originally convered the refletix with got yucky and i wanted them to be easily cleanable but still green smoothie was everywhere..

All I could do was laugh πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My point in all this is…

I could have gotten all pissed off at my furbaby for barking yet that’s her job and that wouldn’t have stopped the blender from exploding all over the place…

Shit happens and we do have a choice on how we handle it and we definitely have the choice on how we react to any situation!

So instead of getting angry when things don’t go your way… Laugh at the situation, fix it and go about your day.. Cause getting angry doesn’t help, it makes it worse for you…

Just handle the situation and laugh while you’re doing it too πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‰..

Have a beautiful day world 🌻

Don’t Get Discouraged

When Things Don’t Go YOUR Way

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

After posting about my latest setback with the bus and about my belief about timing…I got a lot of comments about how people admired my tenacity, strength and perserverence as well as my staying positive through it all πŸ€”

It made me look back on everything that has happened since I brought the bus home and I actually looked back on my whole life πŸ€”

All my life people have said that I was tenacious and I never really thought about it until today…

I’ve always been a go getter when it comes to something I want and I’ve never ever been a quitter… It’s just not in my nature to do so…

So I guess I am tenacious πŸ˜‚

Yet for me there is no other way…

I never understood why people give up so easily on their dreams and it’s never ever crossed my mind to do so, especially with this bus project.

My point in all this is:

We all have the drive and the power to achieve whatever we want to achieve…

Perserverence is in our blood…

It’s truly part of our makeup and who we are..

Sometimes we just need to reach deep to find it.. πŸ˜‰πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰..

So do not get discouraged when things don’t go your way… Keep on doing what you need to do and go about your day..

Cause life is like an obstacle course with lots of ups and downs.. So don’t let setbacks stop you.. Stay strong and stand your ground!! πŸ’ͺπŸ’–πŸ’ͺ

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

Persevere

Everyone Can

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

I know this is a different type of post for me yet for the past two days I haven’t been able to get the word “Persevere” out of my head… πŸ€”

Then this morning when I woke up I kept hearing it over and over πŸ€”

So I got up, started my morning routine and while my coffee was brewing, I decided to write down what the word “Persevere” means to me πŸ˜‰ and this is what popped into my head:

P- Persist … Don’t stop…
E- Endurance … Keep going…
R- Resilient … You are…
S – Strength … You’ve got this…
E – Engagement … Do it…
V – Victory … You did it…
E – Emerge … Gloriously
R – Results … Before and after…
E – Empowered …You’ve reached your goal..

My point in all this is:

We all go through different struggles, we all have different dreams and goals yet we ALL can persevere through anything and every thing that life throws our way!!

Don’t ever give up on your dreams cause no matter what life throws your way, the bumps, the setbacks, the struggles, the disappointments etc…

Do not give in, do not give up…

Cause you can and will persevere as long as you have faith and you keep believing!!! πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

Have a beautiful day my friends and never ever stop believing in YOU!! πŸ˜‰

Life Is All About Timing

What’s Meant To Be Will Be

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—

The last two days have been a tad crazy… Filled with emotions and feelings about hitting the road.

Most I could pin point and totally understood and yet one I just couldn’t figure out. Mainly because it was a feeling I never had before or should I say never really acknowledged πŸ€”..

Thursday I stayed busy, packing the bus up, making sure I had everything I needed for my new journey and saying “see you later” to friends..

I was doing everything I thought I needed to do so I could leave first thing Friday morning πŸ˜‰

Fast forward to Friday lol

Friday morning.. when I woke up I of course was very emotional and as I was talking to my son, I kept getting this strange feeling I just could not pin point.. πŸ€”

I got in the bus, said my see you laters, cried and left…😫

I got about 3 miles away and I noticed that my speedometer and dash lights weren’t working πŸ€” so I pulled over, checked all my lights and nope..

No headlights, No speedometer, No dash lights, No running lights or brake lights πŸ€”

Soooo I turned around, went back to my son’s to check the fuses and all the fuses were fine… πŸ€”…

Got to be the alternator again!!!

So without getting all bent out of shape about something totally out of my control, I decided to stay at my son’s for another week so I could get this figured out..

I called my mechanic but because he’s getting married today I told him not to worry about it, to enjoy his wedding and that we will fix it after the weekendπŸ˜‰

Timing is everything lol…⏰⏰⏰

My point in all this is:

Shit happens and I truly believe that everything happens for a reason..

I obviously wasn’t meant to leave just yet and just because things don’t happen in YOUR time.. Doesn’t mean that it’s not meant to be.

Keep believing and keep doing what you need to do and when the time is right everything will fall into place cause that’s just how life is πŸ˜‰πŸ™πŸ˜‰

Happy Day My friends πŸ€—πŸ˜‰πŸ€—

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸŒ»πŸ’–πŸŒ»

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 πŸ€”
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… πŸ€”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 πŸ˜‰πŸ˜.. 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 solenoidπŸ€” 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 πŸ”₯πŸ’₯ IT STARTED RIGHT UP πŸ˜πŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒπŸ˜

Yes I did a happy dance πŸ’ƒπŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒπŸ€ΈπŸ’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!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ˜πŸ’ƒπŸ˜πŸ’ƒ

Now onto the solar 😁😁

When You Second Guess Yourself

You Stop Believing In You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

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… πŸ˜₯😩…

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 😫😫..

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 πŸ˜’πŸ˜©…

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!!! πŸ˜”πŸ˜©πŸ˜”…

Have a beautiful day world ❀️

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???πŸ€”

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 😡 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

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

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 πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—
