A Smile Can Change Everything

A Smile Is From The Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

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.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜–

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…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 

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… ๐Ÿ™„

As I went to walk away he started crying๐Ÿค”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 ๐Ÿ˜‚..

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 ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—…

He smiled huge and this time didn’t scream when I walked away…๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค”.

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… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

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 ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜.

Love It

Live It


Hello World 

This weekend I was hanging out with some friends and their children and I asked the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

One of them said she wants to be an oceanographer to help save our oceans (which of course made me and her mom smile big) and then the little boy said he wanted to be a trash collector with a big huge truck to clean up all the trash on the beaches (which made me smile too) but his mom immediately said: “No you can’t do that, you should be a doctor to help people instead!” Hmmmmm????๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Yep that opened a huge debate session cause it really bothered me that she didn’t support what he wants to do… 

I never understood why anyone would try to force someone to do something they don’t want to do yet it happens all the time… 

And that’s why I wrote this poem… 

We don’t need permission to do the things we want to do yet there are so many parents out there that will tell their child that they won’t pay for college etc if they don’t do what they want them to do…๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Don’t ever allow anyone to tell you your dreams or goals aren’t good enough or that you shouldn’t do this or that.. 

If it’s something you think about 24/7 then do it!!! 

It’s your life and they’re your dreams so love it and live it!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

Have a fantabulous day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

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.

๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ข

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. 

โคโคโค

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!!! 

๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

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…๐Ÿ˜ข 

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 โคโค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โคโค
