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—

Men Have Feelings

It’s OK To Show Them Too!


Hello World

Last night I was talking with a very good friend that was upset because he was always told growing up that a man isn’t supposed to cry! A man isn’t supposed to show his feelings and that it makes him weak if he does! 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

THAT IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST HUGEST MOST GIGANTIC PET PEEVES!!! 

WHY AREN’T MEN SUPPOSED TO SHOW THEIR TRUE FEELINGS?? 

WHY ARE THEY TAUGHT NOT TO SHOW THEM?? 

THEY ARE ALLOWED & THEY SHOULD!!!!!!

I raised my boys to know that it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to show how you feel no matter what and every one of their girlfriends throughout the years loved that part of them and I do too! 

Society sucks in that manner because there is nothing wrong with crying! There is nothing wrong with showing your true feelings.. 

In fact it’s healthy to do so!!! 

Women are told they are too sensitive when we show our emotions and men are taught not to show them!! 

How ass backwards is that????? 

To all the men out there that were told that showing your feeling isn’t OK… BULL!!! 

To all the women out there that are told you’re too sensitive… BULL!!! 

Showing how you feel is showing that you are real… So allow yourself to honour your feelings and allow yourself to be real!!!

REGRETSย 

It’s A Form Of Self Punishment


Hello World, 

Happy New Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

There’s a song by Nina Simone called “Feeling Good” it’s been done by various artists yet Michael Buble’s version I love and this morning as I was doing my morning routine and listening to it… I started thinking about things in my past and present and really looked into if I had any regrets and I can honestly say no… ๐Ÿค”

Of course there are things I think I could’ve done better or even not at all… Yet regrets nope I have none.. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ

We all have times where we think woulda, coulda, shoulda… Yet I wouldn’t be where I am today or the person I am if I hadn’t done the things I’ve done… ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚…

Moral of this story: Don’t ever regret things from your past, things that you didn’t get to say or to do… Cause regret is a form of self punishment and it’s really not good for you too.. 

Let go of your past and release all that is gone.. Cause TODAY is a new dawn.. It’s a new day.. It’s a new life.. And it’s time to feel…. 

GOOD

Have a beautiful day world๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

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—

It’s Your Emotions and Your Feelings

That Make Or Break Your Day


Hello World, 

 ๐Ÿค— BUS UPDATE ๐Ÿค—

First and foremost I want to say thank you to all that sent love and support for me on my sons birthday. It is still a very difficult time for me and you all helped get me through a difficult day and I am forever grateful to you all ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I spent the day crying and laughing working on the bus and focused on what Michael would have been doing and today while getting frustrated over the little things this poem popped into my head๐Ÿ™„ Go figure huh ..Needless to say I changed my mindset, tackled some little things and before I stopped I actually remembered to take some photos for YOU ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€.

The foam flooring my daughter bought me is in (except for one piece in front of the fridge that’s driving me insane) The extension of the countertop is complete and now encloses the fridge (that’s where the white sheer curtain is hanging) I took that lazyboy recliner out because it was too big and I have a surprise for you next week… That space is now where my two doggie beds are and they love it. I put a six and a half foot shelf up above the counter and sink that I still have to put a lip on so stuff doesn’t slide off and I still have to paint/seal the wood on both the countertop and shelf.. I took out the boxspring of the bed and my son made me a platform for the mattress so now I have 18 inches of storage under the bed. I have to hook up the water and faucet and the inverter and solar system which will all be done next week along with the really cool surprise for you that I am so excited about.. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™ƒ. I still have a bunch to do yet omg I’m loving it and of course I keep changing my mind on stuff like the window privacy panels third times a charm๐Ÿ™„ still need more color cause it’s so blue and yellow (Michael’s favorite colors) yet I gotta brighten it up cause I LOVE colors ๐Ÿ’—

So my friends here’s some pics because if it wasn’t for all of you, all of your love, support, donations and belief in me I would not be where I am and I know without a doubt that Michael is smiling at us all!!!  WOO HOO MY FRIENDS IT’S HAPPENING… Much love to you all and thank you thank you thank you.. I AM GRATEFUL

Time Never Changesย 

The Hours Remain The Same


Hello World,  

The last few days I caught myself stressing about the 4th being right around the corner and looking at the things I still need to do to make the bus ready and boy oh boy I’ve been a mess ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ต.

So yesterday I meditated and prayed a lot because it was making anxious and sad that I might not be ready in 10 days… And this morning I woke up to an email from the organization in the Keys that said because they don’t have all the supplies needed down there yet that it wouldn’t be until AFTER the 15th before they will ask the volunteers to start going down there to help rebuild…

Although I did want to leave on Michael’s birthday I know that the “date” doesn’t matter cause it’s the journey itself that does… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Moral of the story: Don’t let hurry worry get stuck in your mind cause the hours of the day don’t change so don’t stress out about the time. We don’t have to always get things done in one day.. So take your time, pace yourself and don’t let stress get in your way๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป
