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˜‰

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€—

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’—

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????? πŸ˜΅πŸ™„πŸ€”.

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… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”…

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 πŸ™„ πŸ˜©πŸ€”πŸ˜©..

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! πŸ˜’πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ˜’… 

Yes I went there… 

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

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 😏

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 πŸ™πŸ’—

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!!! πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

Listen To What Your Heart Says

It Will Never Lie To You


Hello World,

Life is like a highway, with many entrances and exits along the way. Some exits we take lead us to where we’re going some take us out of our way. 

Being indecisive is like being stuck at a fork in the road…. Eventually you have to make a choice on which way you want to go ➑➑➑

We tend to take directions from others instead of looking within… And when we don’t listen to our hearts there’s a chance we could sink not swim.

Listen to what your heart says, it will never lie to you… Then when you’re at that fork in the road you’ll know exactly what to do  

πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€

You all know my dilemma and I can’t do it alone I’m only $628 away.. I was able to get the bus insured and registered and now I only need help to pay the mechanic to make it road ready and safe for me to drive. I am ready to begin my healing journey, spread my sons ashes and continue living life. I truly appreciate all your love, support and belief in me and am truly grateful for you all.

πŸ˜΄πŸ’€ Goodnight Universe πŸ’€πŸ˜΄
