Intentions Are Your Internal Map

Set Them Like A Goal

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Part of my daily morning routine always includes reading something motivational to start my day.. whether it be a shine text or some of my own writings..

It’s something I do daily…

This morning I chose to read my daily shine text and it reminded me of something I use to do every morning for years and why I stopped is beyond me cause it really did work..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Every morning while I was drinking my coffee I would write in a book I made (and at one time sold lol) that said…

“This Morning I Feel…” And I’d write the answer…

I rarely expanded on the answer in big detail because it was just about how I felt at that moment before I started my day…

Then that night before bed I would reverse it sorta and would write…

“Today My Day Went…”And answer that.

It was a really good way to identify how I was feeling that day, how I reacted to things throughout my day and then be able to process it.

It showed me that I really do control how I feel throughout my day and helped me see my actions and reactions to just about everything ๐Ÿ˜‰..

I think it’s time to start doing it again haha ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š

My point in all this is that we really are in complete control of how we feel…

We are in complete control of how we act and how we react to whatever comes our way..

When we set an intention to be positive all day, it can be like a map, like a goal..

So set a daily intention on how you’d like to feel each day… Make it simple, make it real and intend to have a beautiful day!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰.. Click on the video lol

Happy Day World ๐Ÿ’–

It’s Ok To Change Your Mind

Whenever You Want Too!

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Ok so we all know that I’m a sticker freak lol and that I’ve decided to dedicate the back of the bus with pretty and positive vibe stickers ๐Ÿค— well that hasn’t changed yet I just added “Hello World” & “Goodnight Universe” to the front and the back (website will be added later) but the back just wasn’t sitting right with me yet I couldn’t figure out why ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

Well… Yesterday I was talking to my dear dear friend Paul who lives in Scotland and I showed him the front and the back of the bus and being the bff that he is.. He called me out on the back saying it looked a little out of place (his exact words I can’t say hahaha) because I had “Goodnight Universe” at the top and right below it I had a map of the USA ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

And it hit me…

How one-sided of me to have “Goodnight Universe” and only the USA map beneath it…๐Ÿ˜ซ

So yep I immediately took the USA map down painted it again and put the WORLD map beneath it… ๐Ÿ˜

Duh Ricci hahahaha I’m loving it now and it looks way way better….(see picsโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ)

I’m still gonna put the USA map on it so I can see all the states I’m going to but it’s going on the passenger side next to the bus doors instead lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

Needless to say my oldest and his fiancee as well as my bestie agreed yet also laughed cause I’m constantly changing stuff… ๐Ÿค—

My point in this is: there’s nothing wrong with changing your mind a million times if you need too… Nothing in life is set in stone so do what’s best for you!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

Have A Beautiful Day World ๐Ÿ’–

Happiness Shows In Everything You Do

Cause It Comes From Inside Of You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

This morning I had to take the little boy I babysit to the school bus by 6:45am which I rarely do because his parents know I don’t like getting up that early and his dad usually does it, yet this morning when I picked him up he asked me something that totally threw me for a loop..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

He asked me why I’m always laughing & smiling ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ..

Now I haven’t ever been a morning person, at least I don’t think so lol and if you were to ask my kids what I was like in the mornings they would tell you to leave me alone until I had my coffee…

Yet this little boy saw something in me that I guess I don’t see in myself and it truly caught me off guard and all I could do was laugh ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜‚…

I can say that I am a very positive and optimistic person yet truly thought I was always a bitch in the mornings cause I like my mornings quiet..

At least until I have my coffee and my blood starts to circulate lol lol

Yet when I asked him why he thinks that he said cause he always sees me smiling and laughing even when I was hurting bad when my back went out ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

All I could do was smile and tell him that smiling and laughing just feels better then being yucky ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰…

My point in all this is..

Being happy really doesn’t come from outside of us…

When we are truly happy within ourselves it shows outside of us too… It shows in everything we say and it shows in everything we do…

So don’t look for happiness outside of yourself cause that’s not where happiness is…

Happiness comes from inside your heart, cause that’s where happiness lives ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€….

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Gratitude Is Everything

So Be Grateful For All You’ve Got

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

Every morning when I open my eyes the first thing I do is look out the window to see what the weather is like, I look up to the sky, say thank you, say good morning to my fur babies and go about my daily routine ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s something I’ve always done and a few weeks ago when I started growing the herbs for the bus, I added saying good morning, misting and watering them to my morning routine so I wouldn’t forget to do it … ๐Ÿค—

The weather was never one that bothered me or made my day yucky cause that’s something I definitely don’t have control of plus I love the rain (it doesn’t show where I live but I always liked it too)

This morning after doing my daily routine I felt an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude and I couldn’t help but think about all the things I am truly grateful for๐Ÿค”

I thought about how grateful we all should be as soon as we open our eyes in the morning โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ

Now I’m not by any means religious yet I do believe in a power greater than myself.

For some that may be God and for some that may mean the universe as a whole..

Yet for me I do believe in the power of positivity and the power of gratitude…

When we are positive we are surrounded by positivity and when we are truly grateful we tend to receive more to be grateful for…

It’s the law of attraction which I do fully believe in ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—
So my friend remember that every day is a blessing, it’s a gift that’s been given to you… Always be grateful for what you have… Be grateful for another new day too! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

Happy First Day Of Spring ๐ŸŒธโค

Flexible Optimismย 

Can Change Your Point Of View


Hello World 

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them!” ~Albert Einstein 

Yesterday as I was trying to figure out how to secure something in the bus that just wasn’t working right, I stopped to reassess the whole design yet my mind kept telling me it would work and it wouldn’t ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„…

So I decided to move on to something else and this morning the quote from Albert Einstein popped into my head and that’s what made me write this poem… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

The mind can be very tricky and rather than looking at something from a different point of view, we tend to keep trying and wind up getting frustrated and or pessimistic and give up on the idea..๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค. If we use flexible optimism and look at it in a different way, we can usually figure out a different way of doing it… It’s all about changing our mindset ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

Moral of this story: When you start to feel pessimistic you can change that mindset too… Use flexible optimism to change your point of view ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„….

Have a beautifully optimistic day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

There’s No Such Thing As Perfection

Everyone and Everything Is Unique


Hello World,

Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป…

I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป.

The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒŽ

So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ
