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 😥….

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 😮

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…😕

So I knew I had to switch my thinking 🤔 and mix up how I was going to tackle the job so it wasn’t something I dreaded 😵 because I ready do have to get it done.😥

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!!! 😋😋

Have a productive day world 💗

Indecision Is A Decision

Make A Decision That’s Right For You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

For the past few months I’ve been driving myself crazy about the little fridge I bought when I first got the bus 🤔 I thought it would be big enough for my needs and slowly but surely I wound up not liking it at all cause I truly couldn’t put anything in it… 😕.. like not even a gallon of anything or fruits and veggies

I kept going back and forth in my head mainly because I couldn’t figure out the wattage a bigger one would use and if the inverter I have would be able to keep it running 24/7 😲😵

Well after months of being indecisive.. I decided that since I will be living in the bus indefinitely and it will truly be my home on wheels, I took the plunge, got a bigger one WHICH I LOVE (pics below) lifted my bed so it would fit underneath and turned the area where the little fridge was into my pantry and I couldn’t be happier… 🤗😁🤗.. My inverter is more than enough to run the new fridge too😁😊

I had help building the pantry too… NOT…😸 Meet Boots 😼 he’s my other baby and is constantly trying to help me with the bus.. Hahaha help me by getting in my way, playing with the cords etc…😼😼😼.. But he is a lover and a bed hog too 😻😻😻..

Needless to say…

My point in all this is that our minds can send mixed signals and really confuse us too… Indecision is a decision my friends so make a choice that works best for you!!! 🙄😁🙄..

So here’s the update with my mini fridge and my pantry and my furry little helper haha… Have a beautiful day world 💗

Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???🤔

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😵 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..😕

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout 🙃😏🙃

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends 🤗💗🤗

Anger Is One Letter Away From Danger

So AlwaysThink Before You Speak

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗.

It always amazes me when I see someone taking their anger out on others even if it’s not the other person’s fault.. or you walk into the crossfire of someone’s anger or bad day and it becomes your fault…😱🤔

I’ve always been one that if I’m angry, having a bad day or just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I tend to isolate.. if I’m depressed or really sad, I tend to isolate…

It’s not because of any reason other than I do not believe in projecting my mood onto anyone else…

Whether mad, sad or depressed.. if I want or need to talk about it I will… if not I’ll stay away until I work it out myself, yet I don’t ever project my yucky mood on anyone else.. especially if it’s not their fault I’m in that type of mood to begin with 🙄🤔

Taking your anger or frustration out on anyone isn’t ok…

When I am in the crossfire of someone else’s bad mood, it always reminds me that ANGER is one letter away from DANGER and the only thing that projecting your anger onto someone else does is push the other person away 🙄

Anger leads us to saying things that we don’t really feel or don’t really mean to say, and it brings up trust issues too, especially if something is said that you really don’t mean but say in the heat of the moment!

And although actions do speak louder than words, our actions when we are angry usually match the words that we say…

NOT GOOD…😱

So whenever you are angry, remember who or what you’re angry at, think before you say a word… cause some words you can’t take back!!!

Planning Can Be Stressful

And Overwhelming Too

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 💗🤗

It’s really frustrating sometimes when you’re trying to plan things out and you feel like you’re going in circles cause you don’t really know where to start..🤔🙄

Since I got the bus and even before that, I’ve been saving all the places I want to see in my journey and OMG there’s over 205 places at National Parks, Forests and Monuments that I want to go to and that’s not counting all the people I want to see along the way 😱

So I started making a list of the places, where they are, what parks or forests they are in blah blah blah and omg I’m a confused mess hahahaha 😱🤔🙄

In Olympic National Park alone there’s like 35 places I want to see… 

So I need to make calls to the ranger stations to find out which campground is centrally located to see the most etc… 

Building the bus is easy… 

Figuring out where to start, where to camp etc is gonna be the death of me ha 🤔🙄😱

Some just say wing it…

Which would be ok if I knew the areas or have been there before but NOOOOOOOO my Virgo ass wants things planned out… 😠😱😠 And I have all the van lifers and photographers that I follow on Instagram and YouTube to thank for my confusion aka @swagginscottricks the main culprit hahahaha… 

Stop posting all these beautiful places before my list gets out of control hahaha… 

Shit it already is out of control…

205 places?? Really??? 😱😱😱

Needless to say… Time to make a pros and cons list, do a little research and get organized cause my journey is right around the corner … Any suggestions are more than welcome hahahaha 😱🤔🙄

Black Friday

The Craziest Day Of The Year


Hello World 

Ok so why on earth do people make today the craziest day of the year?? I participated in Black Friday sales one time and I swore I’d never do it again and I haven’t!!! 🤔😱

The first thing I saw online when I woke up this morning were articles about people getting trampled on, arrested and sent to the hospital because of a certain item on sale in Walmart and I was like REALLY????? 

Is anything on earth really worth getting hurt or hurting another to get??? Hmmmmm???🤔🤔🤔.

The holidays are supposed to be a happy time, a time of giving, a time of sharing and a time of showing gratitude to and for those we love… 

Yet the media and stores make it a day of competition and that too me is totally the opposite of what the holiday is supposed to be about!!! 😮🤔..

For all of you that participate in this crazy negative pumped up day.. More power to you… 

Yet please try to remember what the holiday season is supposed to be about and be careful cause no gift is so important that you have to fight tooth and nail to get…. 

Today is just another day of the year so breath for goodness sake!!!

Have a calm and beautiful day world 💗🤗

Setting Boundaries Is Healthy

Saying NO Is Too


Hello World, 

Setting boundaries isn’t always easy especially when it comes to family and people you’ve known for a really long time… 

It requires you to say NO NO NO without guilt filling your mind…🙄🤔🙄

I’ve always been a giver, it’s just who I am.. Yet learning to say no without feeling guilty was one of the hardest things for me to do… 😥😥😥.

NO truly is a complete sentence and yet for some reason we tend to want to explain our reasons for saying NO… 

They say we don’t owe anyone an explanation when we say NO… Yet why does it feel so yucky or mean when we don’t give an explanation???

hmmmmm 🤔🤔🙄🙄🤔

Setting boundaries and saying NO shows that you know your limits of what you will and will not do… and your boundaries will be different towards different people too.. 

So don’t get mad or judge when people say NO to you… Cause setting boundaries is healthy and important for your peace of mind too!!🤗🤗.

Have a beautiful day world 🤗❤🤗
