Don’t Stuff Your Feelings

They Always Find Their Way Back


Hello World, 

I haven’t posted a goodnight post in a while and not because of any reason other then I couldn’t think of anything to write ๐Ÿค”

Most of you know that all my posts, poems and quotes are written by me and that they really are about what I’m actually dealing with myself at that moment in time.. ๐Ÿ™„.. (It truly does take me longer to find a background image for my writing than it does to write what I write lol) 

Yet I’ve learned through my writing and by the beautiful responses I’ve received that I am not alone in my thinking nor am I alone with what I’m going through on a daily basis.. Good, bad or indifferent it’s life.. 

I’ve also learned from experience through the years, that stuffing my feelings doesn’t do anything other than compressing them into a ball that gets bigger the more I stuff and no matter what they always come back and always when you least expect it and they do come back tenfold… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Moral of this story: Don’t stuff your feelings cause they only come back to haunt you.. so deal with things as they come up cause no matter how hard they may be to face… In the long run you’ll be glad you did! 

Goodnight Universe..

Much love and sweet dreams ๐Ÿ’•

Don’t Stuff Your Feelings

Cause They Always Come Back


Hello World, 

In the past few days I’ve had a bunch of feelings and emotions pop up out of nowhere yet because I’ve learned to allow them rather then to fight or stuff them, I’ve also learned that I feel 100% better when I deal with them and work through them right away. 

In the past if it was fear of something or sadness I’d stuff the feelings or ignore them as if they weren’t there, trying to be a “strong ” person and not let things get to me… Showing your feelings isn’t a sign off weakness, it’s actually a sign off strength,  a sign that does you are REAL yet society doesn’t help in that manner and neither does education and or sometimes people. 

We are taught from a child to NOT cry, NOT to show or say how we truly feel, NOT to let others see when your hurting etc and I just don’t get that because it always comes back no matter what it comes back 10 fold, and it’s harder to deal with cause it brings up years of past shit and it when we last expect it too and then we just have to deal and heal from it all over again๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก

Feelings are a part of our being and to hide them is hiding who we truly are!!  Always always allow yourself to feel.. Whether you’re mad, glad, sad or scared don’t hide how you feel, don’t stuff them and don’t pretend they aren’t there cause when we deal with them head on they are temporary.. When we stuff and hide them they last forever until we deal with them head on. So feel them, show them, allow them and process them cause when you do you’ll be glad you did!!

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…

True Friends Will Always Stay

Even If Your Far Away


Hello World,

The last 10 days has been incredible and amazing… 

Seeing friends that are actually family, that I’ve know for over 40 yrs yet haven’t seen since 1987 has been an incredible event in my life… 

Going back to the places I grew up, having flashbacks of the times I spent there from 5 yrs old to 29 yrs old brought up past emotions from when my mom passed in 1985 and even issues that I thought I had dealt with yet actually stuffed… 

Yet it truly was incredible and very much needed… โค๐Ÿ‘จโ€โคโ€๐Ÿ‘จ

Being there and seeing old friends and making some new…truly helped me realize what should be important to you.. and it doesn’t matter if you’re together or apart… True Friends are family that stay in your heart.. and no matter where you go or what ever you do… True friends will always be right there for you!!!! 

Have a beautiful day my friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Slow Down

Enjoy Every Moment


Hello World,

Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ™„

All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Forever and Always

My Baby You’ll Be

  • In loving memory of a life well lived and a legacy left behind โค๐Ÿ™โค

  • “There is no end… We just go on a different journey!” Michael Robert Jones…

The book “I’ll Love You Forever” was always my children’s favorite book and I could never read the end without losing it… 

After Michael, as he said, went on a different journey, I thought about that book a lot and how it says…”I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be” and it made me think hard and that is when I changed it to my version… 

  • I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, FOREVER & ALWAYS MY BABY YOU’LL BE… 

Because there is only one thing constant in this life and that constant is love… LOVE NEVER DIES… 

Goodnight my friends much love and gratitude for and to you all!!!
