Giving Up or Letting Go

There’s A Huge Difference


Hello World

“Sometimes Letting Go Of Things Is An Act Of Far Greater Power Than Defending Or Hanging On!”~Eckart Tolle

………………….

Yesterday was a difficult day for me emotionally. As I was arranging where I wanted things to go in the bus, taking things out of the RV and putting things into the bus, I came across Michael’s laptop which I haven’t touched or looked at since he passed away and i decided it was time to take a look and yep I lost it 😒  it made me wonder if I can really go on this journey of sprinkling his ashes at all the places we wanted to see together πŸ™„πŸ€”…

I had just bought it for him the Christmas before he passed and there were so many writings and songs he wrote on it that it totally knocked me for a loop.. Yet at the same time it made me think a lot about the difference between giving up and letting go… Of course I’m not going to throw his laptop away and decided that I’m going to save everything into a special folder and use it to write about my/our upcoming journey… Although it I know will be difficult I believe it will be healing too as it will feel like he’s writing with me.. 

Moral of this story: Don’t let something difficult or painful make you doubt if what you’re doing is right or make you want to give up… Cause there’s a huge difference between giving up and letting go!!! πŸ’—πŸ€—

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 I’ve been working so hard on the bus and not taking breaks that this morning I woke up tired and stressed out a little πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

We all want to give 110% yet we can’t do that all day long… Cause when we try to do so, we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

So learn to take a break from things… You don’t have to quit.. just know it’s okay to take a break and rest a little bit…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… So I decided that since it will be like a steam room inside the bus, I’m gonna take a break today and wash the outside cause it needs it badly and I’ll get to play with the water hose hahaha… I definitely need to get the electricity situated inside and now only need $384 to have everything I need, the inverter, batteries and solar kit to run the fridge and the fans, lights at night and a few other things.. my gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help…

I’m so very close and am so grateful for all the love and support from everyone… 

Much love to you all and have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻

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€—

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€

Slow Down

Enjoy Every Moment


Hello World,

Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… 😱 πŸ™„

All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”..

Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Everything Starts With A Dream

And Dreams Do Come True


Hello World,

This evening I was talking to a friend about the bus and my travel goals and I felt an almost overwhelming sense of AHHHHHHHH πŸ€—πŸ€— 

A feeling that’s almost unexplainable yet at the same time it was a feeling of accomplishment knowing that my dream is coming true right before my eyes β€πŸ€—

Everything we want in our lives start as a dream.. A dream that goes from a wish, to hope, to belief, to determination, to a goal and with work, time and patience our dreams do come true… 

Never ever stop believing in your dreams.. Never ever stop believing in YOU πŸ€—β€πŸ€—
I’m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night. The active link is below for anyone that can help or share the link… Please click on β€œRead More” under the picture of me and my son to read about my journey πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Don’t Allow Your Feelings Make You Forget

What You Deserve

Hello World,

Hello my friends… Today I was up bright and early and got started on the bus right away…. It wasn’t until I went into town to pick up a few drill bits and L-brackets at 1pm that I realized I hadn’t posted my hello world good morning post and I actually started feeling guilty in the hardware store πŸ™„πŸ€”

On our way back I was actually fighting with myself because I wanted to post something yet my mind was totally focused and set on getting more done in the bus and I totally went blank.. I couldn’t think of anything to write about and that’s never happened before which made me know that I wasn’t meant to post this morning, I was meant to keep doing what I was doing and that it was ok to do so… So I did… And as soon as I got back in the bus the guilt was gone 😁❀😁

When I finished for the day and sat looking at the progress and the feeling I had was unexplainable.. this writing immediately came to me and after writing it, I took more pictures to share my progress with you.πŸ™β€

Don’t ever quit my friends, cause the best feeling in the world is watching your dreams fall into place after watching your whole world fall apart…πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€

Still need help with a couple things to complete it…a 2000 watt inverter, an electric cooler or small fridge, and a 200 watt solar panel kit. The gofundme link in my bio is still active and those are really the only things left that I’m needing help with to complete the bus and begin my journey to sprinkle my son’s ashes and heal… The full story is under the picture of me and my son in the campaign just click on β€œRead More” to read it all. Much love my friends and thank you for all your love, support, kindness and light
