When You Believe You Can

You Can

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

I could never understand why people would go out of their way too tell you that your dreams are too big or that they are unobtainable!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค” 

Is it because they are jealous? Is it because they would love to do it but don’t have the balls to do so??

Hmmmmm???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

When I was telling people about my wanting to get a bus, convert it and travel all over the country living in it, I luckily had more support than I did disbelievers yet I did get the “why’s” and the “but your a girl alone” statements and of course I thought about that too yet I’m a “I’ll show you!” person so I never allowed the nay slayers to get me down and today I have my bus, it’s almost completed and my dream is truly happening…

Why??

Because…I believed ๐Ÿ’—

Don’t ever allow others to tell you that your dreams are too big or unobtainable.. 

Cause when you truly believe in yourself and you truly believe you can..You CAN ๐Ÿค—.

Life Changes

Are Inevitable


Hello World 

For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn’t happen at all ๐Ÿค” 

Until today ๐Ÿ˜ฎ this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Since I brought the bus home and started converting it… Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day… 

Excitement butterflies ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ 

And each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it’s because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

Am I excited? Yes!! 

Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!! 

This is A HUGE life change for me…. Something I’ve never ever done in many ways and yet it’s also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too… Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do… 

So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams… Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you’ll realize it wasn’t as scary as it seemed๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Patience Is A Virtue

What’s Meant To Be Will Be


Hello World

I’ve always been one that believes that if it’s meant to be…it will happen and if it isn’t it won’t… 

Yet still I have day’s where I get upset with myself or feel guilty when I set a date for a goal and don’t reach the date set or it gets pushed back for whatever reason ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

Those are the times when I must remember that things don’t always work out in your timeframe and if it’s meant to be it will happen… 

Instead of being hard on myself I need to be patient and keep moving towards whatever goal I have set for myself ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค—

We tend to get impatient and then feel guilty when we don’t hit our goals on time.. So don’t be too hard on yourself and push the guilt out of your mind.. 

Cause guilt gets us nowhere and halts where we’re heading too.. Patience is a virtue…you’ll hit that goal when you’re meant too ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

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—

Never Ever Doubt Yourself

Believe In Your Dreams and Your Goals


Hello World

When we share our dreams and goals with others, many will not believe that it’s possible. Many will tell you that your dreams or goals are too big and that you’ll never reach them.. Some will put doubt and fear in your head as well… yet who’s dreams are they? Theirs or yours?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I woke up thinking about all the people that thought I was crazy (after my son passed away) for wanting to get a bus and convert it into a living home on wheels. To travel all over the country sprinkling his ashes at all the beautiful places that we wanted too see and especially to do it alone.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

It made me giggle and actually start laughing hard cause at one point all their doubts and negativity stated to make me doubt that I could do it too… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” yet look at where I am now! 

The bus is almost finished and my journey will soon begin and I can smile at all the doubters cause in my heart I knew I’d win ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

Now when I look back at things I giggle and I laugh… cause I removed the negativity in my life and started to release the pain of my past. I believed with all my heart that I could make this dream come true, and I did exactly that with positivity and YOU.. 

So push all doubt out of your head and push negative people away from you.. They’re your dreams and it’s your life to live how you want too!!”

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

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. ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ก…

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…๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜จ… 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 ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ๐ŸŒป

Life Is Filled With Lessons

When We Look At Things That Way


Hello World,

Yesterday I couldn’t get my thoughts to settle down.. it was a very emotional day and I couldn’t stop and think… Of why my head would not shut up and let me swim not sink… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

We all go though days like that and there’s really no reason why…  yesterday was a day like that for me so I just processed it and cried…  today I’m feeling better and I woke up with a smile ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป  I’m back to working on the bus at least for a little while ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—…

Not every day will be a sad one, not every day will be good… Just process what you’re going through and go through the day as you should… Cause life is filled with lessons when we look at them that way… And when we fully realize that we’ll have a much better day… ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜€ 

Iโ€™m back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son spreading his ashes where I promised him I would and live our dream โค The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while Iโ€™m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.๐Ÿ˜€โค๐Ÿค—

I am still needing a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times ๐Ÿค— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™

My goal date to embark on my journey is my sonโ€™s birthday October 4th and Iโ€™m so close, itโ€™s right around the corner and Iโ€™m so excited to begin โค๐Ÿค—โค
