Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖🤗
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 🤔
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 😮
Which of course made me think hard 🤔.
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 😉
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 😉😉😉
Have a beautiful day world!
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 💗
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 distance⚡)
It made me think about the little voice that told me it was OK… That I’d be OK 🤗 and I was and am.. 🌧😌
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.. 🤗🌧🤗
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!!! 😁🌧😁
Today I woke up feeling kinda stuck even though I’m making so much progress on the bus..I felt oddly stuck🤔 my dreams have been very intense which doesn’t make for a goodnight sleep and whenever I feel that way I do what I call a life review🤔🙃🙄.
I take a look at where I’m at and try to figure out why or what is making me feel this way and what in my life is prompting the feelings🤔 it’s usually just a matter of changing something..a behavior or action that is no longer serving me well…😌😮🤔.
Do I always figure it out.. No… Yet taking a look and doing a life review always helps take the anxiety or feeling away and helps me get unstuck 🙃😁🙃 and when I do figure it out I usually laugh and just shake my head 😂
Moral of this story: it takes courage to take a look at your life with humor and compassion.. Yet when you do a life review you’ll see the parts of your life that need action ☺😊☺.
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗
Well I figured out what that little bit of fear I was experiencing was… And as I worked through it I had to laugh and laugh hard… Cause it basically was a reality check showing me that my dream IS and HAS come true..😱😱😱.
I guess for me all this time I’ve been working towards getting the bus, converting it and having the ability to travel and keep my promise to my son to live our dream and sprinkle his ashes at all the places we wanted to see, was still in the back of my mind as a dream that I hoped would one day come true and it hit me hard that it HAS come true and it IS happening and I WILL be on the road living that dream very very soon. 😮😱😮.
I guess it was one of those omg wake-up call reality checks when I walked out if the bus the other night and it scared the crap out of me… Like REALLY??? REALITY CHECK RICCI… It’s happening right here, right now!!!! Someone pinch me please hahaha 😱😱😱…
Which brought this poem/quote/whatever you wanna call it to mind this morning…🤗 Hope, Faith, Believing and Optimism all go hand in hand and they all lead you to living the life of your dreams!!! So always have hope, always have faith and always believe in being optimistic.. Cause optimism is having the faith to turn your dreams into your reality.. 🤗😁🤗😁🤗😁
I know cause I believed and my dream is now my reality 💗🤗💗 Never stop believing my friends 💗🤗💗and always believe YOU CAN 🤗🙏🤗.
Have a beautiful day world 🤗🌻
The last few days I’ve been writing a lot about confidence, doubt and believing and tonight as I was writing this I realized that what I write about is truly about what I’m going through at that moment myself🤔🙄
I write so much about what my friends and other people are going through, trying to help others smile and believe, that It didn’t really hit me until tonight as I was walking out of the bus that all the work I’ve been doing on the bus and especially my writing ARE the steps for my journey too..
My journey to find courage within. My journey to heal from losing my son, my journey to live and learn to let go, my journey to not forget..To have peace within my heart and to live my dream and his and omg… 😮 I’m living it 😱😱
Tonight I’m living a wow moment… A omg moment… A shake my head REALLY moment?? and as optimistic, confident and positive of a person as I am… I too go through moments of doubt, fear and lose courage and even lack confidence and have moments of disbelief yet in my heart I never lost hope, I never stopped believing and I now know without a doubt that believing is the key to living and the key to your dreams.. Always believe no matter what my friends, cause believing is what makes dreams come true!!! 💗🙏💗
Goodnight Universe 🌠Goodnight My Friends 🌠💗🌠
It Shows You Have The Courage To Be True To YOU
Tonight on my usual last walk of the day with my dog… I knew it might start raining yet figured I’d make it back before it started… my dog is terrified of rain and thunder yet only when we’re inside and no matter how hard it’s raining, If I put her leash on she has no problem walking in it…strange yes and why I don’t have a clue yet she’s a blast in the rain and I love walking it in… 💦💦💦💦
So right before we headed back the sky opened up and BAM a torrential typical Florida down pour came crashing down… So I decided to dance and she’s jumps and dances with me…. 😂🐶💦😂🐶💦
Of course someone saw us and called me crazy yet I smiled, laughed and said YES I AM… ITS FUN YOU SHOULD TRY IT 🌧☔🌨
Needless to say…don’t ever be afraid of doing silly things you love to do… Playing in the rain is fun and it’s healthy for you too…. Sweet dreams my friends ☔🌧💦🐶😘
One down 2 to go…. I do still need help to bring the bus home and am only $200 from paying off the mechanic now. I really do need your help to bring this dream to life… Most of you know about my gofundme campaign.. please help if you are able for every little bit helps or share the link in my bio so I can do this because I truly believe that it is time and I AM ready ❤❤❤❤❤
☔💫😴 Goodnight Universe 😴💫☔
