So Your Motivation Doesn’t Go Out The Door
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends
This morning when I woke up I looked at the bus and knew I had to get busy organizing things under my bed to make the things I use frequently more easily accessible … Yet my motivation for wanting to do it was gone gone gone 😥….
I actually felt like it’s what I do every day, constantly organizing the bus and although it’s not, I really didn’t want to tackle it cause it’s a pain in the ass getting under my bed 😮
Yet with my journey right around the corner I have got to get it done so I’m not constantly taking things out, putting them back, searching for stuff and feeling totally unorganized cause I can’t find something…😕
So I knew I had to switch my thinking 🤔 and mix up how I was going to tackle the job so it wasn’t something I dreaded 😵 because I ready do have to get it done.😥
My point in all this is…
There are certain things that we do every day that wind up feeling repetitive yet they are things that we must do…
So instead of looking at them negatively do them in a way that works for you!!!
We don’t wake up all motivated to do our daily tasks each day..
So switch up how you tackle them and then get them out of your way!!! 😋😋
Have a productive day world 💗
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗.
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 💗🤗💗..
Have a fantabulous day world 💗
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
So many people tell me I’m courageous for wanting to embark on a van living life being a solo female and it made me think about what the word actually means 🤔🤔
COU·RA·GEOUS — kəˈrājəs/adjective
Not deterred by danger or pain; brave.
I think the key words in this definition are: “Not Deterred” which I believe is true when it comes to me being courageous…
It’s not that I don’t have my fears when it comes to embarking on a solo van life… It’s just that I refuse to allow fear to stop me from living my dream. 😁
Fear is a bitch and I’ve learned that it can and will stop you from accomplishing anything if YOU allow it too…
Yet once you push past it… You realize there was nothing to be fearful of in the first place 🙄
Learning to be courageous is not a hard thing to do… All it means is that you refuse to allow anything to fully stop you…
Being courageous is powerful and shows that you’re not afraid too try… So learn to be courageous and don’t let fear stop you from reaching the sky 🙋🙋🙋🙋
Have a beautiful and courageous day 💗

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??🤔🙄.. (key word expecting!!)
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 🍒, 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…🙄🤔🙄
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…🤔
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!!! 🙄🤔
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!!! 🤗💗🤗
Have a beautiful day world 💗
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
All this week I’ve been rearranging the bus to make more room cause it was totally set up for just me and I hadn’t taken into consideration that other than my bed, there really wasn’t anywhere for anyone to come in and sit down 🤔..
So after my daughter said she wants to travel with me during her summer break from college, I knew I had to redo the bus to make more room or we’d be literally on top of each other the whole trip which would open a huge can of OMG GET OUT OF MY WAY.. MOVE..ETC 🤔..
Well I’ve been so focused on rearranging the bus that this morning when I woke up I realized that there were a couple of things I had scheduled to do this week FOR ME that I totally forgot about 🙄..
That’s what made me realize that I really do need to start making to-do lists again 😒..
We get so focused on the big things that need to get done each day, that we tend to forget about the little things and then have to rush rush rush to get them done which in turn leaves no time to do the things we want to do for us…
like usual we put ourselves on the back burner thinking we aren’t as important as everything else!!!
Hmmmmm🤔🤔🤔 So not true!!!!
Making daily to-do lists are very important to do… Just don’t forget that one of those spots should always be used for YOU!!!
Have a beautiful day world 💗
Hello World 🤗
This morning I was talking to a friend about how when we make a plan, we tend to try to plan it all the way out to the end… and most of the time because of bumps along the way or because we change our minds…the outcome of the plan we made isn’t the same or turns out totally different then we planned it originally😱
It made me think about the bus 🤔
When I first got the bus I really thought I knew exactly how I wanted the inside to be and since then have changed it a few times..😱 each time I’ve changed it, it’s turned out way better then my original plan, yet I still changed it from the original plan… 🙄🤔
So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm 🤔
That’s what made me think of this poem…
I picked the background for the same reason…
If you look at the road in the picture it looks like the end goes down a hill… Yet does it?
It could be straight…it could turn… or it could be a dead end!
We can’t predict how the road goes.. and we don’t know until we get there…🙄
Moral of this story…
We can plan the plan yet we cannot plan the outcome…
All we have is the here and now… and all we can do is take the steps that lead us to where we want to go…
Yet we can’t ever assume or predict that our plan will turn out exactly how we planned it…😉
Live in the moment my friends cause we cannot predict what will be… We only have the here and now cause the future’s not ours to see 🤗💗🤗..
Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!”
Goodnight Universe 💗
It Helps You Reach Your Dreams
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
I never could wrap my head around why people will tell you that you’re crazy to believe you can reach your dreams 🤔🤔..
Do they say it because they don’t have the same dreams or wish they did? Do they say it because they are jealous? 🤔🤔🤔.
This morning I was talking to a few people about the 205 places I want to see in my bus and all the of them said I was crazy to think I could hit that goal and that it was an unrealistic and unobtainable goal especially on my disability income 😠😠
I actually laughed hard… 😁😁
First because I know many people that live the van life on half of what I get each month and second because I truly believe that everything is obtainable when you believe and do what it takes to accomplish it 🙄😁🙄
So my friends…
Don’t ever allow others to deter you from following your dreams…
When someone says you’re crazy… Smile and say that’s true.. And when your old and have lived your dreams you can say that being crazy worked for you 😁🙃😝.
Have a beautifully crazy fun day world 🤗
