Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything πŸ€”…

So I want you all to do me a favor…😁

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! πŸ€—πŸ˜Š

Have a beautiful weekend my friends πŸ’—πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—…

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€—

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road 😯…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me 😒 ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok 😒😒..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world πŸ’—

Don’t Ever Take Your Anger

Out On Someone Else

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I wasn’t going to post today but I just experienced something really cool that we don’t get to see to often 😱 I was picking up a few things at my least favorite store yet the only one in the little town I’m in, and as I was walking up to the register I overheard a very nasty customer screaming at the cashier… 😠

It was very obvious that the poor cashier couldn’t do anything about an item that was out of stock, yet the customer did and said everything nasty that she could to try to get the cashier upset and make it out to be her fault..😱..

Yet the cashier kept calm and didn’t even make a face at the nasty person…😏

Just as I got to the end of the line, a lady and gentlemen walked up to the nasty customer and said…

“It’s not her fault they are out of stock and you have no right to take your anger out on her. If you have a problem take it up with management, but do not scream at this girl.. she is just doing her job and has no control of what is in or out of stock.. So take your anger elsewhere because none of us want to hear it and she doesn’t deserve to be treated like that by you or anyone!!!” 😠

It was so cool and everyone in line started clapping!!! Needless to say the nasty customer left in a hurry and in a huff… 😁

The cashier was amazing and no matter what was being said kept her cool and gave the rest of us exceptional service with a smile like nothing happened at allπŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜

There’s lots of things that happen that make us want to scream but don’t take your anger out on others or treat another mean.. so when something yucky happens remember this quote too…

“Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you!!😏😁😏

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Give Yourself Permission

To Do Whatever You Want To Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a list of things I wanted to do and had all intentions of posting my Hello World post… πŸ™„πŸ€”

Yet after I made my coffee I decided I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing and so I didn’t πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€

Around noon I started feeling a tad guilty for being totally lazy, knowing I had plenty of stuff I could be doing and that’s when it hit me!!😱

Why the hell should I feel guilty for wanting to sit on my ass and not do a thing?

Did I have any pressing things that really needed to get done that day?

NO…

Was my sitting on my ass preventing someone else from getting something done?

NO…

So why did I feel guilty for wanting to have a do nothing day? πŸ€”

It’s because we are programmed to go go go, do do do and not stop till we get stuff done!!!

SOOOOO NOT OKAY!!! 😠😠😠

Our bodies and our mind need relaxing and playtime too.. Don’t allow your head to make you feel guilty when you want to… Give yourself permission to relax or to play..Remember you are worth having a do whatever you want too day πŸ˜€

Have a fantabulous do whatever you want to day πŸ’—

Anger Is One Letter Away From Danger

So AlwaysThink Before You Speak

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

It always amazes me when I see someone taking their anger out on others even if it’s not the other person’s fault.. or you walk into the crossfire of someone’s anger or bad day and it becomes your fault…πŸ˜±πŸ€”

I’ve always been one that if I’m angry, having a bad day or just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I tend to isolate.. if I’m depressed or really sad, I tend to isolate…

It’s not because of any reason other than I do not believe in projecting my mood onto anyone else…

Whether mad, sad or depressed.. if I want or need to talk about it I will… if not I’ll stay away until I work it out myself, yet I don’t ever project my yucky mood on anyone else.. especially if it’s not their fault I’m in that type of mood to begin with πŸ™„πŸ€”

Taking your anger or frustration out on anyone isn’t ok…

When I am in the crossfire of someone else’s bad mood, it always reminds me that ANGER is one letter away from DANGER and the only thing that projecting your anger onto someone else does is push the other person away πŸ™„

Anger leads us to saying things that we don’t really feel or don’t really mean to say, and it brings up trust issues too, especially if something is said that you really don’t mean but say in the heat of the moment!

And although actions do speak louder than words, our actions when we are angry usually match the words that we say…

NOT GOOD…😱

So whenever you are angry, remember who or what you’re angry at, think before you say a word… cause some words you can’t take back!!!

The Meaning Of FINE

It’s Totally True Too


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’—

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through the years is to always honor your feelings.. no matter what they are… You’re feelings are always valid!! They are your feelings and no one has the right to dispute them! πŸ™„

Today a friend gave me a beautiful compliment saying that she loves when someone asks me if I’m ok I say “No.. But I will be!” when I’m not and I don’t ever say “I’m fine!” cause there’s always something underlying with the word FINE..(I’ll tell you my definition of FINE in a sec hahaπŸ€”… 

I’ve always been one on the up and up with however I’m feeling and ever since my son passed away, I’ve been even more of an advocate for everyone male and female to show their feelings and never ever hide them…. πŸ€—…

Have you ever noticed that if you’re not doing ok or when someone says that they are FINE that there is usually something going on… For me FINE totally means 

F=Fuc*** Up, I=Insecure, N=Neurotic, E=Emotional… 

And while it may not mean all of those at the time… There is always something going on when you say I’m FINE otherwise we say… I’m ok..I’m great etc..πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

Always be aware of how your feeling and never ever allow anyone to discredit how you feel cause they are your feelings and each and every one of them is valid… πŸ€”πŸ™„

It truly is a gift to wear your feelings on your sleeve… 

Not everyone does it and everyone should… 

Cause bottling up how you feel is harmful to your health and to your well-being… 

Always know that it’s ok to show others how you feel… It shows that you are human.. It shows that you are REAL!!! πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—.

Have a fantabulous day my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—
