Persevere

Everyone Can

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

I know this is a different type of post for me yet for the past two days I haven’t been able to get the word “Persevere” out of my head… πŸ€”

Then this morning when I woke up I kept hearing it over and over πŸ€”

So I got up, started my morning routine and while my coffee was brewing, I decided to write down what the word “Persevere” means to me πŸ˜‰ and this is what popped into my head:

P- Persist … Don’t stop…
E- Endurance … Keep going…
R- Resilient … You are…
S – Strength … You’ve got this…
E – Engagement … Do it…
V – Victory … You did it…
E – Emerge … Gloriously
R – Results … Before and after…
E – Empowered …You’ve reached your goal..

My point in all this is:

We all go through different struggles, we all have different dreams and goals yet we ALL can persevere through anything and every thing that life throws our way!!

Don’t ever give up on your dreams cause no matter what life throws your way, the bumps, the setbacks, the struggles, the disappointments etc…

Do not give in, do not give up…

Cause you can and will persevere as long as you have faith and you keep believing!!! πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

Have a beautiful day my friends and never ever stop believing in YOU!! πŸ˜‰

The Pursuit Of Happiness

Is Right Inside Your Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

For the past week as I’ve been doing the last few things on the bus, I’ve been reflecting a lot about my past and my upcoming new life and journey and I asked myself when was I the happiest?

Of course the first thing that popped into my head was having my children πŸ§‘πŸ§‘πŸ‘§.. but then I truly couldn’t think of anything that truly made me happy other than my kids πŸ€”

For most of my life I thought it was outside things that brought me happiness…

I had a a great job, made good money, got my children and myself everything that we wanted, went on amazing vacations etc yet when I really thought about all that, none of it made me truly happy…

What did make me happy was the laughs, the times we went camping and laughed so hard we cried. Cuddling on the couch watching movies…Watching them grow up, graduating from school etc and seeing them play, laugh and smile…

Those were truly the happiest times of my life and continue to be πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ’–…

The little things that make you FEEL!!πŸ’–

So my friends do not look outside yourself to find your happy place… Happiness isn’t a destination it’s not a marathon race!!

So if you want true happiness the place you need to start… It truly within yourself cause happiness comes from your heart!!! πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ€—

Have A Happy Day World

Goodnight Universe πŸŒŸπŸ’–πŸŒŸ

Say What You Mean, Mean What You Say

Remember Setting Boundaries Is Perfectly OK

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ’–πŸ˜˜πŸ’–

I’ve always been a blunt person and have always said what I mean and mean what I say… And I can totally admit that I can tend to be brutally honest when it comes to certain things…

Yet I’ve never ever had time for people that beat around the bush or when someone asks my opinion they turn around and get all butt hurt when I express how I feel about what they asked me about πŸ€”πŸ€¨πŸ€”

Whiners are a huge pet peeve of mine…

I get that we all hear, see and process things differently and I get that we all need to vent, yet vent about it then do something about it..

Don’t sit there and whine or bitch about it constantly… Get it off your chest then find a solution…

No matter what it is… Period!!!…🀨😠🀨

My point in all this is:

There’s certain things we need to set boundaries for and it doesn’t matter what it’s about… It can be as simple as someone asking your opinion about a certain subject…

Setting boundaries are a safety precaution for yourself..

Just like saying NO…

You don’t have to explain yourself when you’re doing what you want to do.. Especially when the boundry you set is for protecting YOU!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ’–πŸ˜‰..

Have a beYOUtiful day world πŸ’–

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸŒ»πŸ’–πŸŒ»

A couple days ago I be posted about following your gut and about my getting new batteries for the bus and it not starting after I installed them 🀬

I talked about my thinking it was the starter and not the batteries and so yesterday I took out the starter and took it to the parts store to get a new one πŸ€”
The guy at the store was really nice and wanted to test the starter before I had to put out $180 for a new one and AHHHHHHH it tested perfectly fine 4 TIMES 🀬🀯🀬🀯🀬

SOOOOOOOOO he tried to troubleshoot the issue with me and as we were brainstorming a light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that the original owner told me I may have to get a new starter solenoid… πŸ€”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 πŸ˜‰πŸ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything 😫

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoidπŸ€” my neighbor came over and he helped me test the solenoid and yep yep there was no juice going to it at all…

I replaced the solenoid and BAM πŸ”₯πŸ’₯ IT STARTED RIGHT UP πŸ˜πŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒπŸ˜

Yes I did a happy dance πŸ’ƒπŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒπŸ€ΈπŸ’ƒ…

My point in all this is:

Your dreams don’t happen easily, you have to work for it… Just keep going no matter what & DON’T YOU EVER QUIT!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ˜πŸ’ƒπŸ˜πŸ’ƒ

Now onto the solar 😁😁

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

The Choice Is Up To You

Choose To Be Happy

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ❀️
It always makes me giggle when someone says that they woke up in a bad mood πŸ€”

I mean seriously… How can you wake up in a bad mood???

I understand if you slept crappy or something kept waking you up that you may be tired..

Yet how can anyone seriously WAKE UP in a bad mood? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”…

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best person to interact with as soon as I open my eyes πŸ‘€ yet that is cause my blood hasn’t stated circulating and my brain just needs to fully wake up before I start rambling or have a full blown conversation (my coffee addiction helps that haha) yet I can’t ever say that I opened my eyes and woke up in a bad mood πŸ€”…

We truly do have control on how we feel each and every day…

We can choose to smile as soon as we wake up or we can choose to be a grouch…

The key word is CHOOSE…

Cause we are totally control of how we want to be when we open our eyes in the morning…

Sooooo make the choice to be happy and choose to smile when you open your eyes… It really is that simple πŸ™„

Have a beautiful day world πŸ€—

A Day To Rest, A Day To Chill

Don’t Forget Your Happy Pill

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past week has been pretty hectic for me, not to mention my cell phone is going bonkers (I really need a new one)

My Instagram is following and unfollowing all kinds of people, every poem I’ve written in the past few days has disappeared into the abyss and my blog keeps telling me I am putting in the wrong password… 😠😩😀

Now I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s the universe telling me too take a chill pill, yet whatever it is I’m going to go outside and spend the day with a friend..

I’m not going to work on the bus (we’ll see how long that lasts hahaha) I’m not gonna write in my blog (after this post for the weekend) and I’m not going to worry about my stupid phone or the internet today.

I’m actually going to take my own advice 😱 go figure huh lol

So my friends….

Whatever this week has put you through, let it go…

Today is a new day…

Grab a friend, go outside or take some time and just chill… Whatever you decide to do.. don’t forget your happy pill πŸ˜€πŸ€—πŸ˜€

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—

Kindness Is Magic

It Doesn’t Cost A Thing


Hello World

Today was a very emotional and somewhat overwhelming day… I wish I could show you all the text I received from someone I met on IG through my writing…I’ve never met her personally yet when she needed someone to talk to I was there, not because I had too and not for any other reason other than she needed a shoulder, an ear and to hear that it’s ok to feel, it’s ok to be sad and it’s ok to cry A LOT..  cause crying cleanses the soul and one day laughter will heal it … And the text I received today out of the blue was from her reminding me of our talk and how much it helped her through a very trying time in her life…  β€

My point in saying this is to remind everyone that kindness matters so much… Sometimes just an ear to listen or a shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on is all someone needs and it can truly change someones life… πŸ™β€πŸ™

There is so much hate and cruelty in the world today… BE that friend, be that person, be that shoulder or ear… Not because you have to.. Because you care and because our world desperately needs it…and one day so may you!!! It truly is through kindness and love that one by one we WILL change our world!!!  

Goodnight World.. 

Much love,  kindness and peace to you all
