Crazy Is A Good Thing

It Helps You Reach Your Dreams

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

I never could wrap my head around why people will tell you that you’re crazy to believe you can reach your dreams ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.. 

Do they say it because they don’t have the same dreams or wish they did? Do they say it because they are jealous? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I was talking to a few people about the 205 places I want to see in my bus and all the of them said I was crazy to think I could hit that goal and that it was an unrealistic and unobtainable goal especially on my disability income ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜  

I actually laughed hard… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

First because I know many people that live the van life on half of what I get each month and second because I truly believe that everything is obtainable when you believe and do what it takes to accomplish it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„

So my friends… 

Don’t ever allow others to deter you from following your dreams…  

When someone says you’re crazy… Smile and say that’s true.. And when your old and have lived your dreams you can say that being crazy worked for you ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜.

Have a beautifully crazy fun day world ๐Ÿค—

Like A Seedling Pushing Through The Ground

Patience Is The Key


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Not sure why, yet this morning I woke up thinking about how when we are growing flowers in a garden, we get excited about every step as we watch it grow… 

We don’t pull it out of the ground cause we get impatient cause it’s not growing fast enough… 

We savoir the process step by step and nurture it every day… 

Yet when it comes to our dreams and goals… If doesn’t happen fast enough we quit or walk away๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„..

We cannot expect our dreams to happen overnight, 

It’s a process… 

Just like growing anything is, yet we tend to get frustrated and impatient cause we want them to happen NOW!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ™„..

Nothing in life happens that fast and our dreams take time to flourish just like a flower or tree… 

So enjoy each moment step by step and remember patience is the key!!!

Believe You Can

And You Will


Hello World

This morning I woke up thinking about the bus and how far I’ve come and It made me smile really big at all the work I’ve doneโ˜บ

I started to think about all the times I started to lose faith and belief and I thought about all of the people that helped me keep the faith and believe that my dreams would come true and it is happening right before my eyes ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ˜€.

So many times I wanted to give up and it’s truly with determination, the support of so many beautiful souls that believed in me when I didn’t,  people that held me up when my faith started to waiver and truly believing that kept me going and wow my dream is literally right around the corner!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—..

Moral of this story: 

Whenever your faith starts to waiver and you stop believing in you.. Hold on tight to faith and believing cause that’s what makes dreams come true!๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—

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

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… ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ™„

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… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

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… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Family Isn’t About Blood

It’s About Connections From Your Heart!

Hello World,

As you all know my second mom passed away last week and although we lost touch for 20 yrs the first 15 yrs and the last 10 yrs we’ve been in touch just about every day. Yet in the last 10 yrs, Katy my bff, my sister, my heart and my rock lost her brother, then I lost my son and now her mom. 

There was no way I wasn’t going to get myself to Atlantic City even if I seriously had to walk to be here for them, as they have always been here for me over my life and as always the universe provided a way for me to fly there on Wednesday… 

I was in contact with Katy’s brother/my brother and we decided to keep it a surprise and not let Katy know… Katy lives in Paris and for 10 yrs we have been trying to get together, yet one thing or another kept preventing it.. not this time.. and to explain the emotion when we saw each other would be impossible… Yet although this wasn’t the reunion we had planned due to her mom passing… It has been a reunion like no other and I wanted to share it with you!!! 

Seeing friends and family that I grew up with that I haven’t seen in 30 years has been incredible… Brian and Keith my brothers, Andre the love of my life and Julio whom I love so very much and not a day has gone by in the past 30 yrs where I haven’t thought about them. Meeting my gorgeous neices Asia and Miranda and making new friends that are actually more family now Bonnie, Mary, Carl, Lori and reminiscing about the old days, making plans for new times and adventures and reconnecting with those I have and will always love is a feeling that I cannot explain and a feeling that will be in my heart forever and beyond. 

So my friends always always appreciate the moments you have and have had… so you’ll never regret the moments you’ve missed. Much love to you all today, forever and beyond!! 

Thank you all for understanding my absence as the funeral was yesterday and although I’m not going home until Wednesday,  I just wanted you all to know that I’m ok and I miss and love you all so very much… Thank you for all your messages, your love, your support and your genuine concern during my absence. YOU ALL truly mean the world to me and I mean that with all of my being โค๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful rest weekend my friends ๐Ÿค—โค

In order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while Iโ€™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 also just below, for anyone that can help. Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words canโ€™t express my gratitude for you all ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—
