Remember What Life’s About

Bring Out The Little Kid In You

Hello World and Happy Day My FriendsπŸ€—

For the past few months I knew I needed a new phone cause mine has been acting up badly yet it wasn’t a big priority because finishing the bus was my number one πŸ˜‰

I had made the decision that I would finish the bus first & wait until right before I hit the road to get a new one πŸ€”

Well as we know plans change haha and I had to change my decision and get a new one asap or I’d be without a phone cause I was truly ready to throw it against a brick wall cause it is acting up so bad😑

Although it pushes finishing the bus back a little bit..

I am ok with it…

I have to have a reliable phone not just on the road but because I use it for literally everything 😱😑..

Well…

I knew yesterday that I was going to get the new Samsung Galaxy 9S+ this afternoon (it just came out on the 15th & I’m not a fan of iPhones lol) and this morning I woke up feeling like a little kid waking up on Christmas morn…

Filled with excitement and dancing around the bus like a little kid with a new toy and I believe haven’t even gotten it yet πŸ˜„πŸ’ƒπŸ˜„

Of course it made me think of how serious we all take life on a daily basis and actually made me laugh harder and dance more πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜

My point in all this (not to mention sharing my excitement) is that we truly do make life harder than it really is… πŸ€”

We get so caught up in daily life that we forget what life’s about…We forget to take the time to laugh & play & shout…

We forget the little things that make us jump for joy, laugh, cry, smile and just basically feel good inside!!!

So my friends let out the little kid in you and I’m sure that you will see… That life is not as serious as we make it out to be 😁 πŸ˜„ 😁…

Have a exciting and silly 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’—

A Smile Can Change Everything

A Smile Is From The Heart

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

The last few days have been difficult for me… Trying my best not to fall into a depressed funk from missing my son badly and just lots of things on my mind.. πŸ€”πŸ˜–

Yet today I was at the little country store where I live and there was the cutest little baby sitting in it’s stroller staring at me…

As soon as I made eye contact with him, he gave me the biggest smile and of course it made me smile big right back…😁😁😁 

I asked his mom how old he was and she said he was almost 5 months… I complimented his beautiful smile and then the oddest thing happened… πŸ™„

As I went to walk away he started cryingπŸ€”I kept walking and his cries got louder… 

So I had to walk back and as soon as he saw me he stopped and smiled huge…I smiled back and giggled and went to walk away and omg he started screaming again hahahaha πŸ˜‚..

His mom and I laughed cause every time I tried to walk away he started screaming…… 

His Mom asked me if I wanted to hold him and so of course I said yes and OMG as soon as I put him in my arms he started laughing hard… Which of course made me and his mom laugh and she said he’s never ever done that… 

Why he did I don’t know yet I walked them out to her car, put him in his car seat gave him a kiss on his forehead and said… Thank you little man.. You just made my day πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—…

He smiled huge and this time didn’t scream when I walked away…πŸ€”πŸ’—πŸ€”.

Now I’m not sure why that happened and yet I do believe it was a sign from the universe letting me know my son is ok or maybe a sign from my son … 

Yet more than anything I do know that the power of a smile cause truly change your mood… πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ’—

So my friends don’t forget to smile today at everyone you see… Cause a little smile can change the world and make it a beautiful place to be πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ˜.

When Was The Last Time You Laughed So Hard It Hurt?

Laughter Heals The Soul


Hello World,

Did you know that adults laugh approximately 15 times a day, whereas a child laughs approximately 400 times per day?

It is so very important for us to remember to take time out to play, be silly, have fun and laugh so hard it hurts!!!! We get sooooo busy and consumed with our dreams, our goals and our daily lives that we don’t take time for ourselves.

When we see a bunch of children laughing and playing it always brings a smile to our face and yet we don’t do the same… Take time out to have some fun, let your inner child out and take some time to have a blast, be silly and laugh.. Take time out to play… Take time out for YOU!!!

.Most of you know my story and I am now only $780 away from reaching my goal and getting that shuttle bus and now have 2 weeks instead of have 8 days to get it paid off and get it off the property where it is…. I still cannot do this alone yet I believe and have no doubt’s that with your help I will…..

I totally get that times are tough and most of you don’t know me, yet this is so very important to me and I still need your help to make it happen. I’m ready to begin my journey to heal .. I’m ready to keep my promise and honor my sons last wishes….

Please help if you are able or share my story so that together we can make this possible for me to do… The active link is above and below.

Thank you all for sharing you with me….and thank you for being with me on this difficult journey.. For it’s all of you that have helped me see that I will not be and am not on this journey alone!!! ….

There Are No Words

For The Loss Of A Child


Hello World,

Grieving is NO joke!!! I was thinking about taking a sabbatical from IG and from my blog for a bit because I’m an emotional mess from losing my son, yet decided to continue doing what I do and rather than stuffing my feelings behind my writing, I’ve decided I’m going to write about them.

πŸ˜’πŸ™πŸ˜’

Most of you know I lost my son and I realized tonight that although my writing is about daily stuff, about life, I’ve been stuffing about what’s really going on and it’s time I let it all out so to speak. 

❀❀❀

I’ve been having the hardest time in my life emotionally and I need to express how I feel about the worst pain ever, the loss of a child, with hope that I may reach others that are emotionally lost as I am and let them know they are NOT ALONE!!! 

😒😒😒

My writing is an extension of me and what I’m going through at that moment and up until literally 5 minutes ago I realized that my sadness and pain are an extension of me too yet up until now I wasn’t ready to open that can of whoop ass…😒 

I AM ready now…I AM ready to fully being my healing journey and for those that would like to follow you’re more than welcome… Let the healing begin… This is gonna be a bumpy ride.. Much love and sweet dreams my friends…  Let the ride begin β€β€πŸ™πŸ™β€β€

πŸ’«Goodnight UniverseπŸ’«
