You Can’t Get Where You Want To Go

By Staying Where You Are

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

This morning I was talking to a friend that I haven’t talked to in a really long time and she complimented me on how I’ve never been afraid of change ๐Ÿค”

She said she has always admired my tenatious ways and the fact that when I set my mind to do something, that I go all out, never being afraid of setbacks and that I keep going no matter what ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Which of course made me think hard ๐Ÿค”.
In some aspects she was right yet when I think back, there’s been many things I didn’t do because I was comfortable and afraid to do it….

Yet more times than not, she was right..

I am not afraid of change, I embrace it..

Change is a part of life and I could’ve stayed being comfortably miserable, or I could push past whatever was preventing me from doing something and just go for it…

Most of the time I did just go for it lol.. Change is exciting to me ๐Ÿ˜‰

My point in all this is…

We cannot reach our goals and dreams by staying where we are..
Staying in our comfort zone won’t get us very far…To move away from your comfort zone
You have take a step to begin.. We can only get where we want to go…By walking away from where we’ve been ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world!

Life Is All About Timing

What’s Meant To Be Will Be

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—

The last two days have been a tad crazy… Filled with emotions and feelings about hitting the road.

Most I could pin point and totally understood and yet one I just couldn’t figure out. Mainly because it was a feeling I never had before or should I say never really acknowledged ๐Ÿค”..

Thursday I stayed busy, packing the bus up, making sure I had everything I needed for my new journey and saying “see you later” to friends..

I was doing everything I thought I needed to do so I could leave first thing Friday morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fast forward to Friday lol

Friday morning.. when I woke up I of course was very emotional and as I was talking to my son, I kept getting this strange feeling I just could not pin point.. ๐Ÿค”

I got in the bus, said my see you laters, cried and left…๐Ÿ˜ซ

I got about 3 miles away and I noticed that my speedometer and dash lights weren’t working ๐Ÿค” so I pulled over, checked all my lights and nope..

No headlights, No speedometer, No dash lights, No running lights or brake lights ๐Ÿค”

Soooo I turned around, went back to my son’s to check the fuses and all the fuses were fine… ๐Ÿค”…

Got to be the alternator again!!!

So without getting all bent out of shape about something totally out of my control, I decided to stay at my son’s for another week so I could get this figured out..

I called my mechanic but because he’s getting married today I told him not to worry about it, to enjoy his wedding and that we will fix it after the weekend๐Ÿ˜‰

Timing is everything lol…โฐโฐโฐ

My point in all this is:

Shit happens and I truly believe that everything happens for a reason..

I obviously wasn’t meant to leave just yet and just because things don’t happen in YOUR time.. Doesn’t mean that it’s not meant to be.

Keep believing and keep doing what you need to do and when the time is right everything will fall into place cause that’s just how life is ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Day My friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—

Divorce Your Past

To Move On To The New


Hello World, 

Yesterday was a very cold and rainy day and as I was painting the counter and shelves it hit me hard that my journey is just a couple weeks away and I lost it๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

I spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how to let go of the sadness and pain because this was supposed to be  and Michael’s journey.. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Although i know he’s with me daily in mind, heart and spirit, I couldn’t get past the fact that his physical isn’t with me and I literally cried all day and cried myself to sleep.๐Ÿ˜ข

I started doubting if I can really travel around alone to all the places he wanted us to see sprinkling his ashes along the way and this morning I woke up with this poem in my head.. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I know it’s going to be a very emotional journey yet I know in my heart and soul that this is meant to be and I believe yesterday was just a OMG IT’S REALLY HAPPENING day and this morning I remembered that I’m not letting go to forget… I’m letting go to move on with my life… 

To live and to begin a new journey, a new chapter in my life and although a tad scary it is time and I am ready. 

Thank you to everyone that has helped me get to this point and for all the love and support received and continue to receive… For you all I am eternally grateful ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

The countdown to my new beginning, my journey to heal has begun!

Life Is Filled With Ups and Downs

In’s and Outs and Round Abouts


Hello World,

Tonight I was thinking a lot about my trip and seeing so many people that were a huge part of my life growing up and mainly one person that brought back so many memories and love that I thought I had let go of or just forgot and that really wasn’t the case because they never left my heart๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

When we look back on our lives there’s so many things and people that came and went yet for some reason or another things changed… 

We look for the why’s and the reasons… the why it didn’t work out.. the what happened and more yet there really aren’t any answers other than it’s just the way life took its course… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

Just remember you wouldn’t be where you are today if you didn’t go through all those yesterday’s…

Some things are meant and some things are not yet love is forever cause it stays in your heart…. 

Good times will happen and bad times don’t last long.. yet they both make you who you are and they make you real strong… 

So hold your head high and smile along the way… Cause those memories in your heart will forever stay!!!

Our Words Create Our Reality

So Choose Positive Words Every Day


Hello World,

We all have good days and bad days yet it’s up to you to decide on which one… Our words create our reality so pick ones that make your day fun ๐ŸŒป

Today I’m working on the kitchen part of the bus and so very excited… (Will post pics of it later)

Yet right when we we’re putting the kitchen cabinet in (which was giving us a hard time) my friend says “it’s gonna be impossible!” and it made me stop in my tracks cause nothing is impossible and I made her take the word back… 

Hahaha as soon as she said. “I take that word back”  we got the cabinet in without an issue… Haha so do your best to use positive words all throughout your day… Cause once you start using negative words you just ruined a beautiful day 

Still needing help to get some things I need for the bus conversion. If anyone know where I can get a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler, and a 200 watt solar panel kit please let me know. My gofundme link below is still active and those are really the only things left that Iโ€™m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my sonโ€™s ashes and healโ€ฆ The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on โ€œRead Moreโ€ to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light โคโค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โคโค

If It’s Worth Having

It’s Worth Waiting For


Hello World,

Today as I was cleaning the bus, I got an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude. It’s been two years since my son and I started our plans of saving for a bus to convert and make home so we could travel all over the country to see all the amazing places we dreamed of seeing. 

It’s also been almost 2 years since he went on a different journey and it’s only been 5 months since I realized that I must continue in order to heal and keep the promise to him that I made โค

My point is I’ve been waiting a long time for this to happen and throughout my devestating loss and my fight NOT to give up… I have our bus and I AM ready to continue with my dreams and his โค 

It’s so so sooooo worth everything I’ve had to endure to get to this point. ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ™

So always remember that if there’s something out there you can’t stop thinking about and want with every inch of your being DON’T QUIT, DON’T GIVE UP because ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING worth having… Is DEFINITELY worth waiting for! because once you achieve it, you too will feel unexplainably AMAZING!! Sweet dreams my friends โค๐Ÿ™

Thereโ€™s a few costly items Iโ€™m going to need help with to complete the bus and so Iโ€™m asking if anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit and a small electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated โ€ฆ I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please DM me or comment below. The active link is below. Iโ€™m so so excited to continue converting the bus. Thank you all for all your help itโ€™s time to get the bus ready for my beautiful journey to heal and to continue ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™
