Don’t Get Angry At Little Stuff

Laugh It Off Instead

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–

So yeah… I picked this picture for the background for my poem cause it’s exactly what happened to me this morning ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Living in a bus definitely has its perks and yet there are a couple downsides too…

Like when you’re in a regular kitchen and your blender lid pops off in mid blend, it usually just makes a mess right where you are…

Butttttttt.. in a tiny space like my bus it goes everywhere cause everywhere is right there ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ bedroom, living room etc ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

This morning I was craving a green smoothie which i don’t usually make for breakfast cause I’m addicted to overnight oats yet I haven’t prepped any overnight oats in a while so I decided to make a smoothie and just as I hit blend my dog barked and scared the crap outta me and yep green smoothie everywhere!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

It was on the ceiling, the counter, my face and all over the window panels but luckily about 2 weeks ago I changed the coverings on the refletix window panels I made to a wipeable contact paper cause the white material I had originally convered the refletix with got yucky and i wanted them to be easily cleanable but still green smoothie was everywhere..

All I could do was laugh ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

My point in all this is…

I could have gotten all pissed off at my furbaby for barking yet that’s her job and that wouldn’t have stopped the blender from exploding all over the place…

Shit happens and we do have a choice on how we handle it and we definitely have the choice on how we react to any situation!

So instead of getting angry when things don’t go your way… Laugh at the situation, fix it and go about your day.. Cause getting angry doesn’t help, it makes it worse for you…

Just handle the situation and laugh while you’re doing it too ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰..

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป

Recover From Negative Thinking

Is Not As Hard As It Seems


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

Last night I was up pretty late talking to a friend that wanted to know how I stay so positive through all that I’ve been through, especially since my son passed away and I really had to think about it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

My friend is the type of person that always goes straight to the negative about almost everything. She doesn’t think the world is against her yet she does go straight to the “what if’s” immediately. 

Last night she asked me what she could do to change her mindset to being more like mine.. More positive and stop going to the “what if’s” all the time and I said: 

“Laugh hard at the yuck, when things happen find a solution and move on… immediately!” ๐Ÿค”..

Now I’m not always positive, yet I try my best not to think of the “what if this or that happens” cause I feel I’d never get anywhere thinking like that… 

When something happens I usually laugh.. Hard.. cause crying over spilt milk doesn’t clean it up ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™„.

I’m fully aware that shit happens that we don’t expect and I sure don’t look at the world through rose colored glasses, yet I don’t assume the worst ever. 

I basically live moment by moment and when things happen I immediately look for a solution and never ever do the poor pitiful me or why me thing cause I don’t believe things happen TO ME…

I just believe that shit happens ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜€. (Sounding a little Forrest Gump here ๐Ÿ˜)

So this morning when I woke up I tried to think of something that could make her laugh when shit happens and I immediately thought of this poem, made a pic and sent it to her… 

I told her to hang it up and anytime something happens and she finds herself going to the negative, go look in a mirror and say 

“Hello My name is _____ and I’m a recovering negative thinker!” 

When she got the photo she said all she could do was laugh and it worked… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž

So my friends… 

Today if drama comes calling, respond but don’t react.. Cause laughter and a big huge smile will stop negative thinking in it’s tracks ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Have a drama free day world ๐Ÿ˜€

Time For Laughs & Smiles

No Stressing Allowed

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ˜

This morning I had to run to the store and I noticed all the stress on people’s faces as they were shopping ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

SOOOOOOO I decided to make a couple of Christmas song videos to brighten everyone’s day ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—.




Have a beautiful day my friends filled with smiles and laughter ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

To Laugh At Oneself

Is Healthy


Hello World,

Since I threw my back out last week, I’ve had plenty of time to think and of course there’s been frustration, anger and disappointment because I’ve basically been flat on my back in bed for a week not able to do anything but rest (which I don’t do well) yet this morning when I woke up all I could do was laugh…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜..

I write a lot about taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally yet here I am laying in bed laughing cause I did just the opposite ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎ 

Yes it’s much easier to preach than to practice what we preach yet I sat in bed for the past few days being angry at myself for getting myself hurt and frustrated cause I literally can’t do anything yet .. hmmmm??? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

There really isn’t any rhyme or reason to why we are so much harder on ourselves then we are on others yet when we can stop, pause, take a look at the situation and instead of getting angry at ourselves or at the situation we can sit back and laugh… 

That’s when you know your in a good place…

Cause seriously once it’s done it’s done and all we can do is keep on moving forward and do whatever we need to do to get going again ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Don’t allow any setback or situation get you stuck in a yucky place… Stop, pause, breathe and laugh cause laughing truly does heal everything ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‚

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Stress Can Be Contagious

Yet Happiness Is Contagious Too


Hello World,

So this morning I’m sitting in the laundromat and as I looked around I noticed that not one person had a smile on their face… 

Now I know that doing laundry isn’t the most fun thing to do yet they had really upbeat old school music playing and it made me smile, start singing and dancing in my seat๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

The next thing I know an elderly lady sat down next of me, I looked up and she smiled and next thing I know, everyone in the laundromat was singing and laughing ๐Ÿ˜‚โค

Moral of this story…. 

Happiness is contagious and stress is contagious too… Yet when you someone stressing OUT give them some happiness from YOU!!๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™‹๐ŸŒป

There are a few items I still need to get so I can complete the bus and make it livable.. If anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt or higher inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ
