Make A To-BE-List

Take Charge Of How You Feel

Hello World,

This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too πŸ€”.

We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come πŸ™„πŸ™„….

So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

……………..

Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. πŸ€—β€πŸ€— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful β€πŸ™β€… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—

We Aren’t Invisible

We’re Here To See Each Other Through


Good evening my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

With all the devastation between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and the possibility of Jose… It made me think about how important it is for us all to be here for each other πŸ€”πŸ™πŸ€”.

Some things we can’t control like Mother Nature… Some things we can like offering a helping hand… It’s not something we have to do yet it’s definitely something we all should do… πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—.

Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and it can truly change someone life… We aren’t invisible yet so many turn their heads when they see someone less fortunate or not “like”they are… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”. 

We aren’t here to be better than or to see through each other… We are here to see each other through.. cause when it comes down to it that’s what we’re here to do… We ARE one!!! 

Goodnight night universe, Goodnight my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Self-Empathy, Self-Love

Have Compassion For Yourself Too


Hello World,

This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”.

We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. πŸ€”πŸ™„

They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too… 

So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest πŸ€—β€

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Don’t Let Fear Halt Your Progress

Let Faith Propel Your Success


Hello World,

This morning after I did my daily routine of meditating, making my coffee and contemplating what I want to do in the bus today, I looked inside from the back and actually got all teared up πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„.

My mind took me back to when I was afraid that getting the bus would never happen and I smiled looking at all the progress I have made… πŸ€—πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

New adventures and changes are scary that’s true… Just don’t ever let fear get the best of you… πŸ˜€πŸ€”πŸ™„

The inside of the bus is looking really good and I’ve pushed past my fears and have done what I could.. now it’s almost ready and so am I to go spread my son’s ashes and start saying goodbye… Not to forget just to move on with my life and live all my dreams for the rest of my life πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™

The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful to ask that have helped me get this farπŸ˜€β€πŸ€—.

I am still needing to purchase a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know.

Life Is Filled With Lessons

When We Look At Things That Way


Hello World,

Yesterday I couldn’t get my thoughts to settle down.. it was a very emotional day and I couldn’t stop and think… Of why my head would not shut up and let me swim not sink… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

We all go though days like that and there’s really no reason why…  yesterday was a day like that for me so I just processed it and cried…  today I’m feeling better and I woke up with a smile πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»  I’m back to working on the bus at least for a little while πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

Not every day will be a sad one, not every day will be good… Just process what you’re going through and go through the day as you should… Cause life is filled with lessons when we look at them that way… And when we fully realize that we’ll have a much better day… πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ˜€ 

I’m back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son spreading his ashes where I promised him I would and live our dream ❀ The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.πŸ˜€β€πŸ€—

I am still needing a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. πŸ€—πŸ™

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€

You Have No Control On Another’s Behavior

You Only Have Control Of Your Own


Hello World,

I have a few friends that are going through various issues and none that are cause by themselves… Yet it made me think of this poem and another one I wrote a while back… πŸ€—β€πŸ€—β€…

I have two beliefs that I of course learned the hard way… Yet even though I know it.. it’s hard sometimes to implement it even when I know I should… When any situation or issue rises I try to only think of this: Can I control it? No… Then let it go and move on…. Can I control it? Yes… Then get off your ass and do something about it… πŸ€”πŸ™„

Both are not very easy yet the “control it yes” is easier than not… So Make a list and do what you need to and don’t you ever stop!!!… β€πŸ™β€…

…………

I’m finally back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son and spread his ashes where I promised him I would…In order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engines battery, I need a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries which costs $364 total. I would also like to get a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times and the cost for the kit is $390. My gofundme link is still active and is below, for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words can’t express my gratitude for you all πŸ€—β€β€¦.
