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’—

The Meaning Of FINE

It’s Totally True Too


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

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through the years is to always honor your feelings.. no matter what they are… You’re feelings are always valid!! They are your feelings and no one has the right to dispute them! ๐Ÿ™„

Today a friend gave me a beautiful compliment saying that she loves when someone asks me if I’m ok I say “No.. But I will be!” when I’m not and I don’t ever say “I’m fine!” cause there’s always something underlying with the word FINE..(I’ll tell you my definition of FINE in a sec haha๐Ÿค”… 

I’ve always been one on the up and up with however I’m feeling and ever since my son passed away, I’ve been even more of an advocate for everyone male and female to show their feelings and never ever hide them…. ๐Ÿค—…

Have you ever noticed that if you’re not doing ok or when someone says that they are FINE that there is usually something going on… For me FINE totally means 

F=Fuc*** Up, I=Insecure, N=Neurotic, E=Emotional… 

And while it may not mean all of those at the time… There is always something going on when you say I’m FINE otherwise we say… I’m ok..I’m great etc..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Always be aware of how your feeling and never ever allow anyone to discredit how you feel cause they are your feelings and each and every one of them is valid… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

It truly is a gift to wear your feelings on your sleeve… 

Not everyone does it and everyone should… 

Cause bottling up how you feel is harmful to your health and to your well-being… 

Always know that it’s ok to show others how you feel… It shows that you are human.. It shows that you are REAL!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—.

Have a fantabulous day my friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

It’s OK To Do Nothing

When Nothing Is What You Want To Do


Hello World

Today when I woke up I actually felt so relaxed that I didn’t want to get up and do anything and I immediately started self-criticizing myself for not wanting to do anything but relax all day ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

My mind immediately went to that you’ve got things to do get up now mindset ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค” and then my neighbor ask me why I wasn’t working in the bus today which led me to believe that I should get off my butt and do something yet my little voice within kept saying NO ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Why we do that I don’t know and I do know that I am my worst critic yet I also know that it’s OK to just BE… I didn’t have anything pressing that needed to get done..I’m not on a time frame and It’s a beautiful perfect fall day to just enjoy the day after an all night torrential downpour and I decided that rather than working on the bus I was gonna just chill.. ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

I sat outside listening to the rustling of the leaves in the wind and feeling the perfect fall breeze and said NOPE not gonna do anything today ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰ and yet went back and fourth in my mind for a while until I said NO.. Chill day lol๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰

Moral of this story: Don’t be so hard on yourself on days you don’t want to do anything.. As long as you don’t have anything pressing the do… Sit back, relax and do you cause you are worth it ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have a beYOUtiful day world๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Listen To That Voice Within

Be Courageously You


Hello World, 

Tonight while having a torrential downpour something kept telling me to go for a walk in the rain. 

At first I even thought it was crazy cause when I say pouring I mean the sky opened up and just dumped and still is yet that little voice inside of me kept saying go it’s OK go.. so I did and I got so drenched that my feet and hands were literally pruned lol lol it was an amazing feeling like being cleansed by the universe… (I love walking in the rain…) 

Yet when I got back my neighbor said I was crazy and courageous for walking in a storm such as we are having (did I mention there was lightning in the far far far distanceโšก)  

It made me think about the little voice that told me it was OK… That I’d be OK ๐Ÿค— and I was and am.. ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ˜Œ

I guess the moral of this story is: So many times we go against what we feel within and wind up regretting it and tonight although that little voice was telling me to go for a walk in a crazy ass rain storm.. I listened and I feel amazing.. ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒง๐Ÿค—

Listen to what your gut says even if it’s something as silly as going for a walk in a torrential downpour cause listening to that voice within is the most courageous thing we can do!!! 

Goodnight universe!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ˜

Don’t Stuff Your Feelings

Cause They Always Come Back


Hello World, 

In the past few days I’ve had a bunch of feelings and emotions pop up out of nowhere yet because I’ve learned to allow them rather then to fight or stuff them, I’ve also learned that I feel 100% better when I deal with them and work through them right away. 

In the past if it was fear of something or sadness I’d stuff the feelings or ignore them as if they weren’t there, trying to be a “strong ” person and not let things get to me… Showing your feelings isn’t a sign off weakness, it’s actually a sign off strength,  a sign that does you are REAL yet society doesn’t help in that manner and neither does education and or sometimes people. 

We are taught from a child to NOT cry, NOT to show or say how we truly feel, NOT to let others see when your hurting etc and I just don’t get that because it always comes back no matter what it comes back 10 fold, and it’s harder to deal with cause it brings up years of past shit and it when we last expect it too and then we just have to deal and heal from it all over again๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก

Feelings are a part of our being and to hide them is hiding who we truly are!!  Always always allow yourself to feel.. Whether you’re mad, glad, sad or scared don’t hide how you feel, don’t stuff them and don’t pretend they aren’t there cause when we deal with them head on they are temporary.. When we stuff and hide them they last forever until we deal with them head on. So feel them, show them, allow them and process them cause when you do you’ll be glad you did!! 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿค—โค

We All Live In A House Of 4 Rooms

We Must Nurture Each One


Hello World,

Tonight I saw a post from a very dear friend @danielwolfsong on IG that was about self-care and my comment to his beautiful post and words reminded me of a post I wrote a long time ago. Tonight I’m reposting it (with a little tweeking…) Because lately I’ve been writing a lot about self-care too ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™โค

The background photo is from the Salado Indian Ruins at Roosevelt Lake in the Tonto National Forest in Roosevelt, AZ.. It’s also one of many that I took the last time I was there, the last time I spent camping with my son 2 weeks before he passed away… It is also the very first place I began my spiritual journey, the journey to find myself and my interpretation of what the Salado Indians believed as I found it to be very profound yet very true as well…..

We all truly do live in a house of 4 rooms and we must honor, embrace and nurture each room, yet we tend to focus on just one. Don’t forget or neglect any of the rooms because in order to live a fulfilling life, we must take care of and nurture each room….

Thank you Daniel for the beautiful reminder and the beautiful memory as well!!!
