Don’t Stress On The End Result

Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’—

The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—..

Except for a few touch-ups here and there, getting all the tape off and giving her a light wax… she’s now all pretty and shiny.. (See picsโฌ‡โฌ‡โฌ‡)

When I first brought her home I was so on a mission to get everything done asap and truly thought I would be on the road in a couple months..

HAHAHAHA NOT ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„

I was so busy focusing on the end result instead of focusing on each step one at a time that I always wound up backtracking ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Between the universe making me slow down or doing to much that I had know choice but to slow down and then of course changing my mind a few times, I felt like it was a never ending battle..๐Ÿ˜ฉ

When I finally did slow down and decided to take one thing at a time, everything started falling into place and I can now honestly look back and smile because I took my time, changed my mindset and focused on one part at a time and the rewards are on point…

I’m so happy with how she looks inside and out and now all that’s left is getting the new tires put on and hooking up the solar ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ …

We get so caught up in the “I want it now!” mindset that we do tend to miss the steps in between and for every step forward we wind up taking a step or two back..

So my friends take your time when pursuing your dreams…

Dreams don’t have an expiration date and it’s so much better to slow down and take your time then to wind up backtracking cause you moved so fast that you missed a bunch of steps along the way…

As they say…

It’s not really about the end result is about the journey along the way ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

So happy with the results ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

Have a beautifully slow Sunday ๐Ÿ’—

You Can Plan The Plan

But Not The Outcome


Hello World ๐Ÿค—

This morning I was talking to a friend about how when we make a plan, we tend to try to plan it all the way out to the end… and most of the time because of bumps along the way or because we change our minds…the outcome of the plan we made isn’t the same or turns out totally different then we planned it originally๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

It made me think about the bus ๐Ÿค”

When I first got the bus I really thought I knew exactly how I wanted the inside to be and since then have changed it a few times..๐Ÿ˜ฑ each time I’ve changed it, it’s turned out way better then my original plan, yet I still changed it from the original plan… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”

That’s what made me think of this poem… 

I picked the background for the same reason… 

If you look at the road in the picture it looks like the end goes down a hill… Yet does it? 

It could be straight…it could turn… or it could be a dead end! 

We can’t predict how the road goes.. and we don’t know until we get there…๐Ÿ™„

Moral of this story… 

We can plan the plan yet we cannot plan the outcome… 

All we have is the here and now… and all we can do is take the steps that lead us to where we want to go… 

Yet we can’t ever assume or predict that our plan will turn out exactly how we planned it…๐Ÿ˜‰

Live in the moment my friends cause we cannot predict what will be… We only have the here and now cause the future’s not ours to see ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—.. 

Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!” 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’—

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! 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’•

Have Faith In Where You’re Going

Take Pride In How Far You’ve Come


Hello World

The past couple of days I decided to take a break from all my social media accounts and focus 100% on finishing the inside of the bus (not a great multitasker) and now the inside is 98% finished๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€ 

I just need to make sure things are secure so I don’t have an avalanche driving down the road and finish putting in the things i need for my journey ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—.. Will post pics this evening cause on Monday the new tires and solar system gets done and omg I’ll be ready to begin๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Of course I changed a few things and made more storage space cause I really don’t like wasted space and needed it too yet I knew that would happen๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‰… Especially since this will be my home for a long time ๐Ÿค—

Yet I’m really happy with how it turned out and it made me take a look at where I stated, where I am today and where I’m going and that’s when this poem popped into my head ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค—..

We get all happy when we reach a goal yet we forget where we came from… So don’t forget how you started and all the work you’ve done… Have faith in where you’re heading too & take pride in how far you’ve come… Cause the journey is about all the little steps and all the challenges you’ve overcome ๐Ÿ’•โ˜บ๐Ÿ’•โ˜บ๐Ÿ’•

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Don’t Confused Your Path With The Destination

You can plan the plan yet not the outcome

Hello World,

How many times have you made a plan from beginning to end only for it not to turn out the way you planned?

We can plan the plan yet we can’t plan the outcome. Life has lots of twists and turns and they usually happen when we least expect them too…

Don’t confused your plan with the destination cause life happens yet as long as you keep believing and you keep moving forward, even with the twists and turns you’ll reach your destination.

Keep moving, keep believing and don’t ever give up!!!

๐Ÿ’ซโค Goodnight Universe โค๐Ÿ’ซ

Iโ€™m so close reaching my goal.. And I am asking for your help to do so. Most have read my story and know what itโ€™s about. Please help if you are able and or share the link to get my story out and make this journey my reality. Iโ€™m ready to heal and ready to live again and we are so close to making this happen so I can keep my promise by honoring my son and sprinkling his ashes at the places he wanted me tooโ€ฆ Thank you all for sharing and thank you for all your support.
