Life Really Is Amazing

When You Stop & Take The Time To See

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

Last night or actually sometime early this morning I woke up crying from a sound sleep with this poem in my head… It wasn’t a sad cry or a scared cry, it was just a slight teary cry πŸ€”

It was still dark outside and I couldn’t get this poem out of my head, so I grabbed my notepad, wrote it down and fell back asleep πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

It wasn’t until after I made my coffee, sat down and went to read my morning motivation text that I remembered that I had written this poem down..

So I grabbed my notepad and read it πŸ€”

I felt so calm reading this and I tried to remember if I had a dream but couldn’t remember if I did or not.. yet all I could think about was my son Michael and yet this time I didn’t cry πŸ’–πŸ€”πŸ’–

I’m not one that ever remembers my dreams yet I’m also one that never wakes up with a poem in my head and then takes the time to write it down half asleep yet this time I did and the more I think about it, the more I believe that it was my Michael, a sign of some sort reminding me to stop and remember the beauty and love we shared..

(yeah I’m crying now) πŸ˜’πŸ’–πŸ˜’..

I guess my point in all this is…

Life really is amazing when you stop and take the time to see…

That love is everywhere around us cause it comes from inside of you and me πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

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

Follow Your Instincts

Follow Your Heart


Hello World 

This morning while having my coffee my friend started taking about regrets and how she wished she wouldn’t have done this or that throughout her life and it made me think πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” 

So I asked her why she doesn’t do those things now and she couldn’t give me a reason why she couldn’t πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

All our lives we are told we have to do this, we have to do that… And we are also taught that we have to earn the right to do something we love or we’re told as a child that something we want to do like being an writer, a dancer or an actress isn’t a feasible career… Hmmmmm?? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

There is no set time for you to do the things you love to do.. 

As they say.. 

“Dreams don’t have an expiration date!” 

So follow your instincts, follow your heart, follow your passion it’s now time to start!.

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

Self-Care

Needs To Be A Habit Too


Hello World 

“Sometimes The Most Important Thing In Your Whole Day, Is The Rest We Take Between Two Deep Breaths!” Etty Hillesum

Last night while reading the diary of Etty Hillesum, I came across the above quote and it made me think of how we constantly put everything and everyone before ourselves, sticking ourselves on the back burner with the “I’ll take care of me later” mindset and it hit me kinda hardπŸ€”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€” 

What about ourselves??? 

We make it a daily habit to take care of everyone and everything else yet the most important thing to do is to take care of ourselves and we totally slack on it and then wonder where frustration, resentments and all that other crap comes from! πŸ™„

Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ’—

Time Never ChangesΒ 

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 😡😱😡.

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… 😁😍😁

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 wayπŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 I’ve been working so hard on the bus and not taking breaks that this morning I woke up tired and stressed out a little πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

We all want to give 110% yet we can’t do that all day long… Cause when we try to do so, we beat ourselves up when something goes wrong. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

So learn to take a break from things… You don’t have to quit.. just know it’s okay to take a break and rest a little bit…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… So I decided that since it will be like a steam room inside the bus, I’m gonna take a break today and wash the outside cause it needs it badly and I’ll get to play with the water hose hahaha… I definitely need to get the electricity situated inside and now only need $384 to have everything I need, the inverter, batteries and solar kit to run the fridge and the fans, lights at night and a few other things.. my gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help…

I’m so very close and am so grateful for all the love and support from everyone… 

Much love to you all and have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍🌻

DΓ©jΓ  Vu

VujΓ  DΓ©


Hello World,

I have been a busy lady getting the bus all ready… Yet if course the window privacy panels were driving me insane cause no matter what they did not wanna stick to the vinyl along the windows unless I wanted to use crazy glue which would have defeated the purpose of me bringing able to take the up and down… SOOOOOOOO I changed them yet again.. Lol lol… There’s a before and after pic and OMG I am now loving them ❀❀…. 

That’s what made me think of this poem…I was feeling like I doing the same thing I’ve and over again DΓ©jΓ  Vu big-time and remembered a friend telling me about VujΓ  DΓ© … Which means seeing something familiar yet looking at it in a completely different way… Hence the changing of the window panels woo hoo hahaha πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

I also put in the fridge (see pic) so the kitchen is almost done which I’m really happy about and once that’s done, within a few days I’ll put down the rest of the flooring and then other than the inside electricity I’ll almost ready to hit the road for the Keys to go help clean up 😁❀😁

Hurricane Irma really messed up a ton of cell towers and internet lines so my service has been really spuradic hence my not being here as often, yet I wanted to stop in and say HELLO WORLD while I had the chance to say everything is moving along nicely… I’m down to only needing $424 to complete the inside electricity and my gofundme link is still active and below if anyone can help… ❀😘❀🌻
