Don’t Wait For The Right Time

Don’t Let Time Get In Your Way

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends
This morning I was responding to a comment on my blog and it was on a post I had written about following your dreams and time 🤔 the comment was very nice and at the end the guy said:

“I love that your chasing sunrises during your sunset years! I wish I didn’t wait for the “right time” to live my dreams cause some of them I’m to old to chase now!”🌞🤔

It threw me off at first cause of course my ego said :

“Is this man calling you old?”

Which made me laugh and when I thought about it for a sec it made me smile cause it was actually a beautiful way to put it

“Chasing sunrises, Durning my sunset years!”

I’m not a spring chicken in numbers and being an empty nester and retired so to speak, I am living my golden years.. and getting ready to travel all over in a bus… The comment actually fits 😉🤗😉..

My point in all this is:

We do watch the clock constantly..

We can’t wait till we’re a teenager, we can’t wait till we’re “legal age” we can’t wait to get outta school, have a baby, get married… Blah blah blah..

We are constantly putting timeframes on ourselves!

So my friends.. do not wait to do the things that you love to do… Cause if you keep on waiting, time may get the best of you!! 😉😁

Have a beautiful day world 💖

3 Days and Counting

I Think I’m Gonna Puke

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖🤗
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Video story instead of a poem cause my head is all over the place 😮. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sooooooooo… It always makes me laugh when people say that I’m so strong for doing this cause it truly has nothing to do with how I feel inside… My strength is what makes me do it and walk through the fear but it doesn’t take away the fact that I’m a freaking basketcase and truly feel like I want to puke…🤮🤢🤮..It’s been 10 long months since I brought the bus home and started working on it and the fact that it’s all done and I’m hitting the road in 3 days truly makes me feel like I wanna puke hahaha… My emotions are all over the place, I can’t eat, my stomach is in knots and I truly wanna scream… 😮🤯😯…Sooooooooo… The next few days I’ll just be making sure I’ve got all my ducks in a row and doing my best to breathe 🙄😏🙄 but I wanted to say thank you to all of you that have stuck by me through this crazy journey of building the bus, my tears, my laughs, my everything…

Thank you so very much…I am truly grateful and love you all dearly! 💖🙏..

Let the countdown begin!! 3 days AHHHH 🤯

BUS UPDATE 😮💖😮

Everything Starts As A Dream

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖🤗..
⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ BUS UPDATE PICS ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Yesterday my mechanic came over and checked all the brakes and the front are fine but we decided to completely do the back brakes and to my surprise ALL the parts I need to get are under $100😁

Tuesday I’m getting the parts and he’s going to install everything on Thursday 😮 which only leaves the tires which I’m getting the following week and she’ll be ready to hit the road!!! 😁

😮😮OMG 21 DAYS & COUNTING 😮😮

This morning after I took some pics I went back and looked at the before pics and I figured since the inside and outside is completely done, I’d share some Before & After pics 😮💖😮…

I truly can’t quite wrap my head around the fact that in 21 days I’ll be on the road…😮💖😮..

Of course I got all emotional lol but I started thinking about how everything in life really does start out as a dream

When we’re kids we dream of what we want to be when we grow up…

As we get older we dream about all the things we’d like to do before we get old and can’t do them anymore or as some say and do… we make a bucket list of things we wanna do before we die 🤔

Everything we do in life truly does start out as a dream 💖

Take it from me my friends…

Never ever stop believing in your dreams and do whatever it takes to achieve them..

You have to believe in them to make them come true and the most important thing YOU have to believe in is 💯% YOU!!! 💖🙏💖

Cause when we make the decision to go after that dream and do everything in our power to believe in them and work towards them.. They truly can and do come true!!! 🙏🌟🙏..

Everything in life starts out as a dream & making those dreams come true… Is totally up to YOU! 🌟💖🌟💖🌟

Thanks for all your love and support!!

Don’t Ever Doubt Your Abilities

There’s So Much You Can Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🌻💖🌻..

There’s only 3 major things left to do in the bus..

1.Get it tuned up..

2. Finish installing the solar

&

3. Get the tires installed…

My mechanic who comes to me to do the work on the bus has been crazy busy and because he knew I wasn’t leaving till June 10th his coming to finish the tune up wasn’t really on my mind and then BAM 💥 😯😯😯…

I was in the midst of organizing the bus (a never ending task lol) putting things where I wanted them so I remember where they are lol, packing away winter clothes etc when my phone rang and it was my mechanic 😯 he was on his way to finish tuning up the bus 😯…

At first I was excited and then I got highly emotional and started crying… It hit me…😯

My new life is truly about to begin…😯

The biggest part of my leaving was getting a tune-up and OMG it’s done…😯

So many emotions went though my mind and still are yet it made me think about the day I brought the bus home, what it looked like inside and out and what it looks like today and there’s so much for me to be proud of 😁.

My point in all this is:

Don’t ever downsize your abilities, don’t doubt what you can do.. all your dreams can happen, when you believe in YOU!!!🤗💖🤗

OMG IT’S HAPPENING!

35 days and counting!!!

AHHHHHHH 😯😯😯😯

Don’t Stress On The End Result

Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗

The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE 💗🤗💗..

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 pics⬇⬇⬇)

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 😏🙄

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 😩

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..😩

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 🤗😁 …

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 🤗💗

So happy with the results 🤗🤗🤗

Have a beautifully slow Sunday 💗

Don’t Ever Stop Believing

Cause Dreams Do Come True

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗

⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇BUS UPDATE⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇

I was very blessed to have a mom that always taught me to believe in my dreams and that if you have faith and believe in yourself and your dreams, nothing can stop your dreams from being your reality…

I’ve always believed that and I taught my kids that as well 💗🙏💗

Last July with the help, love and support of so many people… My dream of getting a van/bus to convert so that I could keep my promise to my son, travel and sprinkle his ashes at all the places we wanted to go to came true 🤗💗

Most of you have seen the work I’ve been doing on the inside and I love how it’s coming along, Yet the outside was driving me insane. No matter how much I scrubbed it, it looked kinda grungy 😱

After pricing out what it would cost to get it painted I knew that wasn’t gonna happen…

Until last week…

A dear friend knew how frustrated I’ve been and knowing that the body of the bus was half aluminum and half fiberglass suggested that I paint it myself 😱

haha well you know me…

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED 😁

I did the research for the type of paint I needed which was a Topside Marine paint that’s normally used for boats, priced it and …

OMG…

Getting it painted went from a cost of $2000+ to under $100 to do it myself 😱

Soooooo this is what I’ve been doing for the past week (except the days that mother nature decided to rain for 3 days)..

It’s not done but it’s been primered and has 1 coat on it and OMG IT’S LIKE A BRAND NEW BUS 🤗😁

I couldn’t wait to show you all cause I’m so proud of what I’ve done and when I woke up this morning I knew I had to write a poem about believing and having faith in your dreams cause I’m bonified proof that with hard work, determination, faith and belief nothing can stop you from making your dreams a reality…

So don’t ever stop believing. Have faith in all you do… Cause having faith & believing is what makes your dreams come true!

Have a beautiful day world 💗
