Be Happy Be You

It’s really not that hard

Hello My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Just sitting here playing with different apps because I want to share my journey with you once I get on the road…

My whole page will be changing to reflect the journey I’m about to embark on…

My poems will still be written by me yet the photos will be all mine, showing and reflecting where I am and my thoughts as always. ๐Ÿ˜Š

The journey I’m about to embark on living in a bus, and traveling all over, is not only a new life, new chapter journey, it is also a healing journey, a journey to spread my son’s ashes at all the places we wanted to see..

While honoring him and finding me ๐Ÿ˜Š

My hope is that my journey can help others that have lost a child know that they too can live, love and carry the pain in a different way, a way that doesn’t knock them on their ass like it did to me.

A learning too let go journey…

Not to forget…

But to LIVE…. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– …

Click on the video it’s actually kinda cute haha ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me ๐Ÿ˜ข ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—

Watch For Burnout Cues

Take Some Time For You


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

Have you ever noticed that during the winter season and the holidays we tend to get more burnt out then other times of the year? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”… 

We catch colds easier, we’re way more tired and stressed too.. is it because it’s cold out?? Is it because it’s Christmas and we’re rushing around like lunatics?? 

Or is it simply because we get so caught up in everything we want to get done before the end of the year that we forget to stop and take time out for ourselves? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

Almost everyone I know is either stressed because of Christmas, saying they don’t have enough time or money to get stuff done or they are sick as a dog with a cold or flu!! 

Hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” there really isn’t any difference between this time of year and any other time of year yet we make ourselves crazy and wind up getting burnt out, physically ill or both!! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ท..

We truly are in control of our physical and emotional well being and our body does give us cues when we need to chill out and slow down… 

The problem is.. 

We usually don’t listen until it’s too late… 

We wind up exhausted or physically ill and then we can’t do anything… Which again makes everything worse!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

No holiday, job or person is worth your getting burnt out or sick…

Listen to your body… 

Watch out for the cues… 

Slow down a little bit and remember to take care of YOU!! ๐Ÿ˜Š..

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!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

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!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”..

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 ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

To Laugh At Oneself

Is Healthy


Hello World,

Since I threw my back out last week, I’ve had plenty of time to think and of course there’s been frustration, anger and disappointment because I’ve basically been flat on my back in bed for a week not able to do anything but rest (which I don’t do well) yet this morning when I woke up all I could do was laugh…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

I write a lot about taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally yet here I am laying in bed laughing cause I did just the opposite ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Yes it’s much easier to preach than to practice what we preach yet I sat in bed for the past few days being angry at myself for getting myself hurt and frustrated cause I literally can’t do anything yet .. hmmmm??? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

There really isn’t any rhyme or reason to why we are so much harder on ourselves then we are on others yet when we can stop, pause, take a look at the situation and instead of getting angry at ourselves or at the situation we can sit back and laugh… 

That’s when you know your in a good place…

Cause seriously once it’s done it’s done and all we can do is keep on moving forward and do whatever we need to do to get going again ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Don’t allow any setback or situation get you stuck in a yucky place… Stop, pause, breathe and laugh cause laughing truly does heal everything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Take Care Of Your Body

It’s The Only One You’ve Got

Silly Saturday Video day

Happy “Silly Saturday” World ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ…..

Yeah I did it again… Really need to learn when to stop… Spent the day in the hospital for tweeking my back… Yet this time it wasn’t all my fault ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

There isn’t much that I’m afraid of yet my biggest girly ewwwwwww AHHHHHHH run fast phobia is a snake.. Which of course my daughter who knows that and is always playing pranks on me with rubber snakes knows that oh too well and on Thursday right after I told her my back was hurting cause I lifted something wrong, she sent me the second video and yep out it went lol lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ she didn’t do it on purpose it went out cause I jumped…. It was actually really funny cause I couldn’t stop laughing afterwards๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ..

Needless to say I decided instead of writing a poem today I’d try to make a Snapchat video without laughing and I actually succeeded โ˜บโ˜บโ˜บ.. I’ve always called Saturday “Silly Saturday” a day to have fun and be silly and hence the two videos above ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ..

Taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally is so important to do.. So have a “Silly Saturday” and do something you love to do ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ

Have a happy Silly Saturday world ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
