When One Chapter Closesย 

A New One Always Begins


Hello World, 

Thinking about my upcoming journey a lot.. There’s been so many different emotions yet the one that overpowers them all is excitement… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

Where to start which way to go first… Up, down, North, South, East or West… Flip a coin maybe?? Lol …the bus will be done within 2 weeks and I’m still waiting for the ok to go down to the keys and help.. so I guess we will see… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜€

One day at a time is all I can do yet it feels so good to know it’s happening.. So close and so exciting… A new chapter,  a new beginning,  a brand new life! ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ˜˜

Don’t be afraid of life transitions cause transitions happen all our life.. Baby to toddler, toddler to kid, kid to teen and teen to adult and it just keeps going… So don’t be afraid of life’s transitions cause when one chapter closes another one always begins ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’

Goodnight Universe ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

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!!”

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Optimism Is Having Faith

To Achieve Your Dreams


Hello World, 

Well I figured out what that little bit of fear I was experiencing was… And as I worked through it I had to laugh and laugh hard… Cause it basically was a reality check showing me that my dream IS and HAS come true..๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

I guess for me all this time I’ve been working towards getting the bus, converting it and having the ability to travel and keep my promise to my son to live our dream and sprinkle his ashes at all the places we wanted to see, was still in the back of my mind as a dream that I hoped would one day come true and it hit me hard that it HAS come true and it IS happening and I WILL be on the road living that dream very very soon. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

I guess it was one of those omg wake-up call reality checks when I walked out if the bus the other night and it scared the crap out of me… Like REALLY??? REALITY CHECK RICCI… It’s happening right here, right now!!!! Someone pinch me please hahaha ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ… 

Which brought this poem/quote/whatever you wanna call it to mind this morning…๐Ÿค— Hope, Faith, Believing and Optimism all go hand in hand and they all lead you to living the life of your dreams!!! So always have hope, always have faith and always believe in being optimistic.. Cause optimism is having the faith to turn your dreams into your reality.. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ 

I know cause I believed and my dream is now my reality ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’— Never stop believing my friends ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—and always believe YOU CAN ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Kindness Is Magic

It Doesn’t Cost A Thing


Hello World

Today was a very emotional and somewhat overwhelming day… I wish I could show you all the text I received from someone I met on IG through my writing…I’ve never met her personally yet when she needed someone to talk to I was there, not because I had too and not for any other reason other than she needed a shoulder, an ear and to hear that it’s ok to feel, it’s ok to be sad and it’s ok to cry A LOT..  cause crying cleanses the soul and one day laughter will heal it … And the text I received today out of the blue was from her reminding me of our talk and how much it helped her through a very trying time in her life…  โค

My point in saying this is to remind everyone that kindness matters so much… Sometimes just an ear to listen or a shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on is all someone needs and it can truly change someones life… ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™

There is so much hate and cruelty in the world today… BE that friend, be that person, be that shoulder or ear… Not because you have to.. Because you care and because our world desperately needs it…and one day so may you!!! It truly is through kindness and love that one by one we WILL change our world!!!  

Goodnight World.. 

Much love,  kindness and peace to you all

Memories Last A Lifetime

Moments Turn Into Memories


Hello World,

Today a friend brought a few campers over too see the bus and he himself hasn’t seen it in a while either.. I showed them the before pictures and they were amazed at what I’ve done and said it’s inspiring them to do it too…. Now Not that I’m tooting my own horn (even though it did feel incredible coming from strangers) the feeling I had made me think about everything that has happened during this project… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜จโค

The good, the AHHHH’s, the hell yes times and the oh shit times too… And yet each and every moment, good, bad and indifferent are moments that got me to where I am today and the feeling is amazing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜…

I have been absolutely loving working on the bus and to see it coming all together is a feeling I really can’t explain ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ™„. Although there have been quite a few wtf’s and doing things over cause of my picky butt lol when I look back at when I started till now I can actually say wow Ricci.. you’ve done good ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค— and that is an amazing feeling โค๐Ÿ™โค

Don’t ever forget to pat yourself on the back for a job well done or any accomplishment. Embrace every moment in your life, cause no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent…. It’s every one of those moments that make for memories that last a lifetime and those moments and memories make up your life… 

Goodnight Universe โค๐ŸŒปโค

Make A To-BE-List

Take Charge Of How You Feel

Hello World,

This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too ๐Ÿค”.

We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„….

So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

……………..

Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful โค๐Ÿ™โค… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—
