Baby Steps Can Motivate

Get You Where You Need To Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’–

When I first got the bus I was all determined to get it totally converted in a month or two max… Haha haha well we know that didn’t happen cause 7 months later and I’m still doing things to it πŸ€”πŸ™„

Not that it’s a bad thing at all cause I’m actually glad that I’m taking my time so that hopefully there won’t be too many changes needed once I hit the road… πŸ˜‰

I’ve been making jewelry and working with polymer clay for a long time and I’m one that needs to know where everything is and very organized when it comes to all my crafty”stuff” and storing tools and supplies in see-through stackable shoe boxes always helped in that manner… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰

Well knowing that I wanted to bring that “stuff” with me in the bus so I have things to do on my down days.. I was going bonkers trying to figure out how to stack them in a place that was easily accessible so I didn’t hurt my back trying to get to them and in a way that they wouldn’t fall all over the place while I drive πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

I tried so many things and was getting so frustrated and truly felt defeated..so I put it on the back burner for a while and this weekend it was like a light blub went off in my head…

I have all this room under my bed since I moved the fridge and two ways to access stuff under there…

Duh Ricci…

So I built a bookshelf and woo hoo perfect solution lol… See pics ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️

My point in all this is that we get so wrapped up in the big picture and looking at the end result that we can lose our motivation and feel defeated… Sometimes all we need to do is step back, take a break and the answers will come… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰..

Go figure huh…

Have a great night world πŸ’–

A Day To Rest, A Day To Chill

Don’t Forget Your Happy Pill

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past week has been pretty hectic for me, not to mention my cell phone is going bonkers (I really need a new one)

My Instagram is following and unfollowing all kinds of people, every poem I’ve written in the past few days has disappeared into the abyss and my blog keeps telling me I am putting in the wrong password… 😠😩😀

Now I don’t know if it’s me or if it’s the universe telling me too take a chill pill, yet whatever it is I’m going to go outside and spend the day with a friend..

I’m not going to work on the bus (we’ll see how long that lasts hahaha) I’m not gonna write in my blog (after this post for the weekend) and I’m not going to worry about my stupid phone or the internet today.

I’m actually going to take my own advice 😱 go figure huh lol

So my friends….

Whatever this week has put you through, let it go…

Today is a new day…

Grab a friend, go outside or take some time and just chill… Whatever you decide to do.. don’t forget your happy pill πŸ˜€πŸ€—πŸ˜€

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—

Don’t Listen To That Negative Voice

That Sits Up In Your Head

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past weekend it literally rained non stop which of course prevented me from doing a few things I need to get done on the outside of the bus and also gave me way too much time in my head thinking about things I could change or things I could’ve done better πŸ€” πŸ™„πŸ˜«

We all have that little critic in our head that tries to tell us we’re not good enough or that things that we do aren’t right and it can be very strong at times and can put up a hell of a fight…

Yet this past weekend I actually caught that little devil trying to fill my head with doubts and so instead of letting it win I turned it around by looking at what the bus looked like when I got it and what it looks like today and WOW what a difference (SEE BELOW ➑ BEFORE & AFTER PIC)

So my friends…

Don’t ever let that negative critic tell you what to do… Cause more than half the time it’s wrong and says things that are not true… Practice staying positive no matter what you do… Cause positivity always pushes negativity away from you!! πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

Stay positive world πŸ’—

Indecision Is A Decision

Make A Decision That’s Right For You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

For the past few months I’ve been driving myself crazy about the little fridge I bought when I first got the bus πŸ€” I thought it would be big enough for my needs and slowly but surely I wound up not liking it at all cause I truly couldn’t put anything in it… πŸ˜•.. like not even a gallon of anything or fruits and veggies

I kept going back and forth in my head mainly because I couldn’t figure out the wattage a bigger one would use and if the inverter I have would be able to keep it running 24/7 😲😡

Well after months of being indecisive.. I decided that since I will be living in the bus indefinitely and it will truly be my home on wheels, I took the plunge, got a bigger one WHICH I LOVE (pics below) lifted my bed so it would fit underneath and turned the area where the little fridge was into my pantry and I couldn’t be happier… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—.. My inverter is more than enough to run the new fridge too😁😊

I had help building the pantry too… NOT…😸 Meet Boots 😼 he’s my other baby and is constantly trying to help me with the bus.. Hahaha help me by getting in my way, playing with the cords etc…😼😼😼.. But he is a lover and a bed hog too 😻😻😻..

Needless to say…

My point in all this is that our minds can send mixed signals and really confuse us too… Indecision is a decision my friends so make a choice that works best for you!!! πŸ™„πŸ˜πŸ™„..

So here’s the update with my mini fridge and my pantry and my furry little helper haha… Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Don’t Ever Take Your Anger

Out On Someone Else

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I wasn’t going to post today but I just experienced something really cool that we don’t get to see to often 😱 I was picking up a few things at my least favorite store yet the only one in the little town I’m in, and as I was walking up to the register I overheard a very nasty customer screaming at the cashier… 😠

It was very obvious that the poor cashier couldn’t do anything about an item that was out of stock, yet the customer did and said everything nasty that she could to try to get the cashier upset and make it out to be her fault..😱..

Yet the cashier kept calm and didn’t even make a face at the nasty person…😏

Just as I got to the end of the line, a lady and gentlemen walked up to the nasty customer and said…

“It’s not her fault they are out of stock and you have no right to take your anger out on her. If you have a problem take it up with management, but do not scream at this girl.. she is just doing her job and has no control of what is in or out of stock.. So take your anger elsewhere because none of us want to hear it and she doesn’t deserve to be treated like that by you or anyone!!!” 😠

It was so cool and everyone in line started clapping!!! Needless to say the nasty customer left in a hurry and in a huff… 😁

The cashier was amazing and no matter what was being said kept her cool and gave the rest of us exceptional service with a smile like nothing happened at allπŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜

There’s lots of things that happen that make us want to scream but don’t take your anger out on others or treat another mean.. so when something yucky happens remember this quote too…

“Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you!!😏😁😏

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’—

Give Yourself Permission

To Do Whatever You Want To Do

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—.

Yesterday when I woke up I had a list of things I wanted to do and had all intentions of posting my Hello World post… πŸ™„πŸ€”

Yet after I made my coffee I decided I didn’t feel like doing a damn thing and so I didn’t πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€

Around noon I started feeling a tad guilty for being totally lazy, knowing I had plenty of stuff I could be doing and that’s when it hit me!!😱

Why the hell should I feel guilty for wanting to sit on my ass and not do a thing?

Did I have any pressing things that really needed to get done that day?

NO…

Was my sitting on my ass preventing someone else from getting something done?

NO…

So why did I feel guilty for wanting to have a do nothing day? πŸ€”

It’s because we are programmed to go go go, do do do and not stop till we get stuff done!!!

SOOOOO NOT OKAY!!! 😠😠😠

Our bodies and our mind need relaxing and playtime too.. Don’t allow your head to make you feel guilty when you want to… Give yourself permission to relax or to play..Remember you are worth having a do whatever you want too day πŸ˜€

Have a fantabulous do whatever you want to day πŸ’—

Being An Adult Is Overrated

Bring Out The Kid In You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Being an adult is so overrated!!

I was working on the bench in the bus and the kid that I babysit for was riding around on his hoverboard.

He’s 8 and can fly around on that thing like no other 😱

I stopped what I was doing to watch him for a sec and when he saw me he came over and asked if I wanted to try it πŸ€”

My mind immediately went to..

What if I fall?

Omg what if someone see’s me fall?

What if I look like an idiot??

Blah blah blah!

It made me think about how when I was a kid if he would have asked I wouldn’t have thought twice about it and would have jumped on it immediately and tried it πŸ€”

What happened to that fearless little kid that wasn’t ever afraid too try something, especially if it looked like fun? πŸ€”

I BECAME AN ADULT THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED!!! 😠

As adults we tend to overthink everything…

Especially if it’s something new, something we’ve never done before and honestly that sucks…

We overthink things to the point where it prevents us from trying new things… It prevents us from venturing out to do things that we want to do and that’s so not good…😠

What’s the worst that could happen?

I’d fall???

Someone would see me and laugh??

So what!!!

So needless to say, I got out of my head and said sure why not, it looked like fun and why should I stop myself from having fun?

I did fall… 😁

Someone did see me and lost it laughing, which of course made me laugh and I got up and tried it again and guess what..

Woo Hoo I did it and had a blast!! 😁

Moral of this story…

Don’t allow overthinking to stop you from trying something new… Bring out that little kid and try everything you want to do… Do not overthink things, cause that’s what will make you quit… Let the little kid in you say:

“Come on let’s go for it!” πŸ€—πŸ˜

Have a great day πŸ’—
