Gratitude

Kindness Is Magic

Hello World,

WOW WOW..SO VERY VERY GRATEFUL๐Ÿค—.

First and foremost … Thank you Cobs @thecobweboriumemporium for the beautiful tag… It’s definitely getting hung up in the bus…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค— And yes your little sweet note made me cry..๐Ÿ˜ข happy tears though ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿค—  

I feel like the universe is smiling down on me cause this has been an incredible 2 days…1st getting Cobs beautiful tag and then the wonderful gifts from a new friend on Instagram, then winning a contest ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ … I’m totally on cloud nine and so very very grateful for the kindness I’ve received ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค— 

SOOOOOOO as most of you all know, I’ve been converting a bus so I can travel all over the country and spread my son’s ashes at all the places we wanted to go see… It’s been just a few months since I got the bus (with the help of so many of you) and my healing journey is right around the corner.

I’ve slowly been getting pantry things I’ll need for my journey and making lists of things that will be road worthy, tiny fridge worthy, good quality, healthy and storable.

 I love veggies, fruits, smoothies and salads and although I cannot say that I’m vegan because I cannot give up cheese, eggs and seafood (not yet anyway) I was talking to my friend Dana (a vegan smoothie bowl Queen) and had just asked her to make me a list of protein powders and other things like chia seeds etc that would help me stay healthy on the road. 

And then this happened..๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค—. 

An amazing company Kura Nutrition http://www.kuranutrition.com read my story and sent me a bunch of their plant based protein powders, a really cool drink shaker maker ๐Ÿค—, 6 really yummy looking recipes and the sweetest handwritten note ever ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— so I had to do this shout-out cause I am beyond grateful… I’ll totally be posting pics of the yummy things I’ll make with them on the road ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— thank you @kuranutrition so very much…๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

THEN LAST NIGHT…. 

I won the coolest double bike rack from a contest that a couple of van living guys that I follow on Instagram @therollingvan  had. I’m overly excited and can’t thank you enough too๐Ÿค— talk about cool…

It will look so good on the bus ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— 

Guess it’s time to get in shape lol lol hey maybe that’s what the universe is telling me… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Time to get in shape Ricci…. hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚

I’m in shock ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and NO I’M NOT AN AFFILIATE for either and I rarely do shout-outs… 

I just had to share my excitement and my gratitude… especially to Cobs and Kura Nutrition because those gifts came from the heart, pure kindness and well.. there are no words only love for them both ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Please check out her blog @thecobweboriumemporium and Kura Nutritions shop online with their great healthy products and The Rolling Van on Instagram or YouTube and their amazing adventures traveling the country ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

I may sound like an advertisement but oh well cause I’m so grateful and excited too..

Thank you so much my friends so very very very grateful ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค— 
Kindness is AMAZING

Every Day Is A New Beginning

Every Night Our Dreams Give Us Hope

Hello World,

Every Day since I brought the bus home I’ve felt a new sense of happiness… Every time I walk out the door and see it I smile huge and every time I step inside of it I get excited for my journey and I get an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude and hope for a new beginning and a beautiful journey.

Always remember that every day is what we choose it to be and when we truly have faith and hope that whatever we want we can obtain and achieve … We CAN… 

Don’t ever give up on your dreams because when you have a dream that is from deep within your heart… Keep going until you get it because dreams really do come true…. You only have to believe in your dreams and believe in YOU! 

๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™ Goodnight Universe โค๐Ÿ™โค

There are a few costly items Iโ€™m going to need help with to complete the bus and so Iโ€™m asking if anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit and a small electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated โ€ฆ I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please email me or comment. The active link is below. 

Iโ€™m so so excited to continue converting the bus. Thank you all for all your help itโ€™s time to get the bus ready for my beautiful journey to heal and to my journey to continue to grow… Much love my friends

Attitude Affects Everything

Gratitude Affects Even More


Hello World,

Patience is a virtue and a very hard lesson as well… Yet we tend to let time get the best of us and allow it to deter or stop us from having the things we desire… Then once we achieve all the things that we want we get cocky and then we forget… That we can lose everything we have as fast as we achieved it!

Don’t allow getting everything you want in life make you think you’re better than cause that’s having an attitude that affects everything and everyone around you… Be grateful for what you have and for everything yet to come for your attitude affects everything yet being grateful affects even more ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™ 

๐ŸŒž Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒž

Iโ€™m down to only needing $125 to pay off the mechanic and bring the bus home. I need your help to continue my journey of healing and letting go and to spread my sons ashes along the wayโ€ฆ I am so close to doing this.

Most of you know my story and about my GoFundMe campaign and the promise I made to my sonโ€ฆ. please help if you are able for every little bit helps or share the link below so I can continue my journey of honoring myself and honoring my son. I truly believe that it is time to let go and continue my journey, itโ€™s time to move on and I AM ready ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•
