Life Changes

Are Inevitable


Hello World 

For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn’t happen at all ๐Ÿค” 

Until today ๐Ÿ˜ฎ this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Since I brought the bus home and started converting it… Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day… 

Excitement butterflies ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ 

And each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it’s because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

Am I excited? Yes!! 

Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!! 

This is A HUGE life change for me…. Something I’ve never ever done in many ways and yet it’s also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too… Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do… 

So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams… Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you’ll realize it wasn’t as scary as it seemed๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Daily Routine

Doesn’t Have To Be Boring


Hello World 

For the past week being that I was immobile from hurting my back, I’ve had a lot of time to contemplate why we get so easily bored with our lives ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Then this morning it hit me….๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Before the loss of my son and even moreso.. Before I became an empty nester.. my life was pretty cut and dry… Wake up, take a shower, get dressed, have my coffee, get the kids up and ready for school, take the kids to school, go to work, have lunch, go back to work, pick up the kids, make dinner, help with homework, get the kids situated for bed, blah blah blah…๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ 

And that was just Monday thru Friday… On Saturdays I would always have a day of fun with my kids and on Sundays I’d get everything ready for the coming week..๐Ÿค” hmmmmm???? Repetition for years and years and we wonder why we get bored with our lives…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„

We all have certain responsibilities yet it doesn’t have to get so repetitive that we wind up being bored…. Living the same humdrum day over and over… 

Mix up your day… Add one thing to your daily routine that you love to do… Take a shower the night before so you have more time in the morning… Plan at least one day a week where you dedicate it to having a no work at all day…a day of fun… Go for a walk, have a picnic at a park… 

Our days don’t have to get boring and repetitive… yet it’s up to us to mix it up… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful mixed up day world ๐Ÿค—

Setting Boundaries Is Healthy

Saying NO Is Too


Hello World, 

Setting boundaries isn’t always easy especially when it comes to family and people you’ve known for a really long time… 

It requires you to say NO NO NO without guilt filling your mind…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

I’ve always been a giver, it’s just who I am.. Yet learning to say no without feeling guilty was one of the hardest things for me to do… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ.

NO truly is a complete sentence and yet for some reason we tend to want to explain our reasons for saying NO… 

They say we don’t owe anyone an explanation when we say NO… Yet why does it feel so yucky or mean when we don’t give an explanation???

hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Setting boundaries and saying NO shows that you know your limits of what you will and will not do… and your boundaries will be different towards different people too.. 

So don’t get mad or judge when people say NO to you… Cause setting boundaries is healthy and important for your peace of mind too!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Hello World

…………………….

This morning while reading my daily motivation I realized that every single one that I’ve read for the past week has been about changes (no such thing as coincidence right lol) ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„..

I (as we know) am embarking on a new chapter in my life and although scary it’s exciting too and while having coffee this morning a friend asked me how it can be scary and exciting at the same time.. ๐Ÿ™„ which got me to thinking and I just smile and said it’s all in how we process it.. Its definitely a mindset thing๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‰

We are all “Masters of Transition” we deal with changes every day… It’s all in how we process them so they don’t get in our way… 

Change is very good for you it helps you bloom and grow.. It helps you move on to better things.. It keeps you on the go… 

So don’t be afraid of changes and remember all that you’ve been through… embrace the changes one by one cause change is good for you!!! 

Happy Halloween World ๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ˜‰

Scared vs Fear

There Really Is A Difference

Hello World, 

This morning I was reading a comment my friend Cobs (@thecobweboriumemporium) made about my post yesterday and it really hit home because she reminded me that there is a difference between being scared and fear… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yesterday in my post I said that it was a tad scary knowing that my journey and a new chapter in my life was about to begin and it is true… 

It’s something new and something I’ve never done yet there is no fear at all because I know I can always go home and my reasoning for getting the bus was also because if I pull into somewhere that just doesn’t feel right I could just get in the drivers seat and drive off without having to go outside๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I get so many people that ask me if I’m afraid and or don’t get how a female could travel around the country in a bus ALONE without being in total fear.. Yet Being that I listen to my gut and or follow my instincts I’m actually very excited and not fearful at all. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—

Fear is a noun and can also be used as a verb. Scared is an adjective. Fear is an emotion. Scared is the state of experiencing fear like being spooked at a haunted house ๐Ÿ˜จ Fear is usually long term and much harder to push past than the temporary feeling of getting or being scared.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As my friend Cobs said… Being scared is your bodies way of telling you to be aware and to take a look around and make sure no dangers there… 

So when you’re starting something new and you feel you can’t go on… Push past that scary feeling and keep on moving on โ˜บ๐Ÿค—

Have a beYOUtiful day world and thank you Cobs for the inspiration my post today.. Love you huge my friend ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—
