Love It

Live It


Hello World 

This weekend I was hanging out with some friends and their children and I asked the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

One of them said she wants to be an oceanographer to help save our oceans (which of course made me and her mom smile big) and then the little boy said he wanted to be a trash collector with a big huge truck to clean up all the trash on the beaches (which made me smile too) but his mom immediately said: “No you can’t do that, you should be a doctor to help people instead!” Hmmmmm????๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Yep that opened a huge debate session cause it really bothered me that she didn’t support what he wants to do… 

I never understood why anyone would try to force someone to do something they don’t want to do yet it happens all the time… 

And that’s why I wrote this poem… 

We don’t need permission to do the things we want to do yet there are so many parents out there that will tell their child that they won’t pay for college etc if they don’t do what they want them to do…๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Don’t ever allow anyone to tell you your dreams or goals aren’t good enough or that you shouldn’t do this or that.. 

If it’s something you think about 24/7 then do it!!! 

It’s your life and they’re your dreams so love it and live it!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

Have a fantabulous day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Optimism Is Having Faith

To Achieve Your Dreams


Hello 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..๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

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. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ… 

Which brought this poem/quote/whatever you wanna call it to mind this morning…๐Ÿค— 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.. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ 

I know cause I believed and my dream is now my reality ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— Never stop believing my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—and always believe YOU CAN ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Reflect What You Desire

Mirror What You Admire

Hello World,

We all want to be surrounded by beautiful people, places and things… Yet in order to have that in our lives we must be beautiful too…. We can’t expect to live a life of goodness and positivity, if we are grouchy and negative and let difficult situations get the best of us ๐Ÿค”

The saying that our vibe attracts our tribe is very very true… What we believe is what we become and it’s according to what we do …So be the person that attracts a tribe that is real and beautiful too cause that’s when all those beautiful things will start surrounding you. โค๐Ÿ˜Š

As for me Iโ€™m smiling because I’m surrounded by the most beautiful souls and I’m so blessed and grateful for them all. So many have helped and are continuing to help me with their love and support, making my days lighter and I truly know I am not alone on this difficult yet healing journey โ€ฆ 

Iโ€™m so close to bringing the bus home.. and making my dreams come true .. thank you all for helping and for all you do. The link is below, please help if you can or share the link so I can keep my promise to my son and myself. Thank you thank you thank you ALL

Believing You Can

Believe You Will

Hello World,

โ€‹As you all know, I am in the midst of getting a shuttle bus to travel and spread my sons ashes at all the places he wanted me too while also living my dream and his…Traveling all over the country seeing the beautiful places in nature we both wanted to see….. The national parks and forests, the Grand Canyon and more…

Well.. Yesterday a friend asked me if I’d go with her to pick up her son in Atlanta, Georgia… It’s a 6 hour drive from where I am and we left at 4:30am… She drove there and because she hadn’t slept, I drove back while both her and her son slept ๐Ÿ˜ด๐Ÿ˜ด

It was a gorgeous drive through country roads and I had a blast listening to music, singing and just looking at all the beauty surrounding me and it hit me like a lightning bolt… Like a burst of light, like a true awakening

             

It was just what I needed to believe… To believe that I can go on my journey in the bus alone, to honor my son and live my dream and his.

It’s time!

I knew that it IS time for me to do this… It IS time for me to push past my doubt’s and push past the fears I kept facing… 

I’ve been a mom for over 31 yrs and never did anything alone, yet even though there were 2 people sleeping in the car I felt alone and it felt amazing…. I am so so so sooooo ready and excited to do this and I know in my heart and soul it’s meant to be and I AM READY….

I do still need help to complete the bus and am only $318 from paying off the mechanic…I need your help to do so… Most of you know about my gofundme campaign.. please help if you are able and or share the link below so I can do this!!!

I AM READY….don’t allow obstacles or your own mind stop you from living the life you desire and want.. 

You CAN do it…you WILL do it… 

All you have to do is truly believe and go for it… It may be scary at first yet taking that first step can and will be the hardest one, yet once you do… You’ll feel amazing and will be living the life of your dreams….๐Ÿ™

Life Is A Highway

With Lot’s Of Entrances and Exits Along The Way

Hello World,

This morning I couldn’t get the song “Life Is A Highway” out of my mind (thanks Carly ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) yet it’s so very true…. Sometimes it feels like we’re driving aimlessly and in circles too… There will always be detours and bumps in your way… Yet don’t ever let feeling lost or scattered get in your way ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

If you’re feeling lost or stuck in the same spot, its all up to you to keep going or not. It may feel like you’re carrying a heavy load, just don’t ever give up cause of a bump in the road!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™

Iโ€™ve tried to change the amount I need on my gofundme campaign yet it wonโ€™t allow me too, Iโ€™d have to start a brand new campaign which is crazy yet I only need $628 more to pay the mechanic. Please help if you are able or share the link so I can continue the journey to spread my sons ashes and healโ€ฆ I AM ready
