That Tell You What You Can and Cannot Do
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗
People drive me crazy…
Why on earth do some people feel they have the right to tell you what you can and cannot do????
It seriously pushes my buttons big-time!!! 😫😠😡..
Everyone I know knows about the van living life I’m about to embark on, they all know I’m a tree hugging, dirt loving nature freak and they all know I’m disabled too 🤔
Yet why on earth would anyone try to tell anyone that because of a disability or weight issue that they shouldn’t or can’t do something they love… like hiking??? 😠..
Yes I’m disabled… Yes I have rods that hold up my big old head because I have no vertebrae in my neck, yes I have limited mobility in my neck and spine because of having to have 12 spine surgeries… Yes I have MS and although I don’t have a weight issue, I’ve been sitting on my ass since my son passed away and I am way out of shape…
But what’s that got to do with what I want to do and enjoy doing?
It drives me insane when people ASSUME that just because someone may have a disability, may have a weight issue or are out of shape that they can’t do certain things…
There’s no size limit to hiking and there’s no signs that say if you’re disabled you cannot hike this trail…
WTF PEOPLE!!! 😠..
So I decided that after receiving my stickers from a couple accounts that I follow on IG @unlikelyhikers & @mtnchicks (that I will proudly put on my van 😉)…I was gonna do a shout out to all the people out here that think or have been told that they can’t do things they want to do because others think they can’t or because they are disabled or are not in tip top shape..
DO IT ANYWAY!!!
If it’s something you love doing, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t..
Sooooo don’t ever let anyone tell you what you can and cannot do… Go out and do whatever it is that you truly want to do!!!💗😉💗…
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗
So many people tell me I’m courageous for wanting to embark on a van living life being a solo female and it made me think about what the word actually means 🤔🤔
COU·RA·GEOUS — kəˈrājəs/adjective
Not deterred by danger or pain; brave.
I think the key words in this definition are: “Not Deterred” which I believe is true when it comes to me being courageous…
It’s not that I don’t have my fears when it comes to embarking on a solo van life… It’s just that I refuse to allow fear to stop me from living my dream. 😁
Fear is a bitch and I’ve learned that it can and will stop you from accomplishing anything if YOU allow it too…
Yet once you push past it… You realize there was nothing to be fearful of in the first place 🙄
Learning to be courageous is not a hard thing to do… All it means is that you refuse to allow anything to fully stop you…
Being courageous is powerful and shows that you’re not afraid too try… So learn to be courageous and don’t let fear stop you from reaching the sky 🙋🙋🙋🙋
Have a beautiful and courageous day 💗
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… 🤔🤔🤔.
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????🤔😮🤔
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…😩😩
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!! 💗💗💗
Have a fantabulous day world 🌻🤗🌻
No matter what the situation is…
No matter what you’ve left behind…
No matter how hard things may get…
No matter how long it takes…
Your dreams are right in front of you…
There’s a reason the rearview mirror is so small 💗🤗💗
Goodnight Universe 💗🤗💗
With Determination You Will Reach The Top
It’s hasn’t ever been said that life is easy, we have to work hard for what we want…. There will always be bumps, ups and downs and times you feel like you’ve had enough…. Yet don’t ever give up…
Life is an uphill struggle and some parts are harder to climb… It’s the tough times that make us stronger and as long as we keep forging ahead we’ll eventually reach the top!!!
🌞🌻🌞🌻Have A Beautiful Day World 🌞🌻🌞🌻
I’m so close reaching my goal.. And I really need your help to do so. Most have read my story and know what it’s about. Please help if you are able and or share the link to get my story out and make this journey my reality. I’m ready to heal and ready to live again and we are so close to making this happen so I can keep my promise by honoring my son and sprinkling his ashes at the places he wanted me too… Thank you all for sharing and thank you for all your support.
