Persevere

Everyone Can

Hello World ๐ŸŒป 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… ๐Ÿค”

Then this morning when I woke up I kept hearing it over and over ๐Ÿค”

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Have a beautiful day my friends and never ever stop believing in YOU!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Pursuit Of Happiness

Is Right Inside Your Heart

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

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 ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿ‘ง.. but then I truly couldn’t think of anything that truly made me happy other than my kids ๐Ÿค”

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 ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

The little things that make you FEEL!!๐Ÿ’–

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!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

Have A Happy Day World

Goodnight Universe ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒŸ

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

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 ๐Ÿคฌ

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 ๐Ÿค”
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 ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ

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… ๐Ÿค”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid๐Ÿค” 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 ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ IT STARTED RIGHT UP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Yes I did a happy dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’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!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

Now onto the solar ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

When You Second Guess Yourself

You Stop Believing In You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Remember when you were in school and had to take a test… Before you handed it in you went back and changed a couple answers you weren’t sure about only to get the test back and the first answer you picked was correct but you second guessed yourself so you wound up getting the answer wrong!!!

Yeah gotta love when we do that right lol lol… ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

Well for the past two days I was trying to figure out the best way to access my closet in the bus cause since I moved the bed, getting to my clothes was a tad difficult so instead of doing what I originally thought of I wound up rearranging everything only to wind up going right back to my original idea which totally wasted a whole day of work ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ..

I guess my point in all this is that we tend to second guess ourselves a lot and all we are really doing is not believing in ourselves… Not trusting in how we really feel in the first place ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฉ…

So my friends don’t second guess yourself cause what & how you feel in your heart is true… When you second guess yourself you stop believing in you!!! ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜”…

Have a beautiful day world โค๏ธ

Don’t Forget To Take A Break

It’s Really Good To Do

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—

It always makes me giggle when I’m on a roll doing something, make plans to totally finish it the next day and then mother nature says…

“NOT”…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

When I worked in corporate America, I always had to go go go and wouldn’t stop until I was done…

Which always stressed me out and wore me out as well..๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Since I got the bus home and made a solid decision to take my time and do it right, it never fails that whenever that go go go side pops up, mother nature and the universe do something that makes me have to slow down and take a break ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Yesterday I didn’t stop with the taping and painting on the bus all day long… It was a beautiful day and that go go go side of me flared up big-time…

By the end of the day my shoulders and arms were so sore that all I did was make a salad for dinner and plopped into bed…

The whole time thinking that today I was not gonna stop until it was finished… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„…

Yeah right!

Woke up this morning to torrential rain that hasn’t stopped…

So I guess it was mother nature’s way of making me take a break hahaha so don’t forget to stop and take a little break or two.. cause anything that must get done will get done when it needs too ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜..

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

Rearrange Your To-Do List

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฅ….

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

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…๐Ÿ˜•

So I knew I had to switch my thinking ๐Ÿค” and mix up how I was going to tackle the job so it wasn’t something I dreaded ๐Ÿ˜ต because I ready do have to get it done.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

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!!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Have a productive day world ๐Ÿ’—

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

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 ๐Ÿ˜ข ..

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 ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข..

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 ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—
