Mistakes Are Just Lessons

To Slow Down And Take Your Time

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends πŸ˜πŸ’–πŸ˜

We always tend to be so hard on ourselves whenever we make a mistake, yet since I started converting the bus 10 months ago, I’ve definitely learned that mistakes are truly lessons!!! They tell us to slow down, step back and take our time…

Yet rarely do we listen! πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Before I was supposed to hit the road last week, I had decided I wanted to take the wheelchair ramp out of the bus! For a couple reasons…

1. it’s was in my way to sit on my bed with the back door open and look out

2. It was really really heavy and taking it out (according to my mechanic) would give me better gas mileage cause it was a 1000 pounds in steel that I didn’t want anyway 😁

SO we took it out…

Which also gave me 2 feet more room inside 😁😁😁😁….

After I took it out of course my designing brain went into effect and I decided to push my bed all the way back against the back wall and extend the bench and make it an L shape 😁 (pics to follow after it’s done) πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Needless to say I took measurements, headed to Lowe’s, got the wood I needed, had them do the long cuts so they were straight lol

Of course I measured a tad off so I had to recut the pieces myself and yep messed up lol

So back to Lowe’s I went (laughing the whole time) to get the piece I messed up (this time I made them cut it lol).πŸ˜‚

My point in all this is:

Making mistakes are a part of life and we all make them…

We can either let it get us all worked up, pissed off and let it ruin our day


We can look at it as a lesson to slow down, take our time and get back on track!

I personally laugh them off cause it’s my own fault for rushing in the first place lol..

So my friends don’t let a mistake ruin your whole day.. it’s just a mistake not the end of the world!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Have a beYOUtiful day world 🌻

Don’t Stress On The End Result

Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—

The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

Except for a few touch-ups here and there, getting all the tape off and giving her a light wax… she’s now all pretty and shiny.. (See pics⬇⬇⬇)

When I first brought her home I was so on a mission to get everything done asap and truly thought I would be on the road in a couple months..


I was so busy focusing on the end result instead of focusing on each step one at a time that I always wound up backtracking 😩

Between the universe making me slow down or doing to much that I had know choice but to slow down and then of course changing my mind a few times, I felt like it was a never ending battle..😩

When I finally did slow down and decided to take one thing at a time, everything started falling into place and I can now honestly look back and smile because I took my time, changed my mindset and focused on one part at a time and the rewards are on point…

I’m so happy with how she looks inside and out and now all that’s left is getting the new tires put on and hooking up the solar πŸ€—πŸ˜ …

We get so caught up in the “I want it now!” mindset that we do tend to miss the steps in between and for every step forward we wind up taking a step or two back..

So my friends take your time when pursuing your dreams…

Dreams don’t have an expiration date and it’s so much better to slow down and take your time then to wind up backtracking cause you moved so fast that you missed a bunch of steps along the way…

As they say…

It’s not really about the end result is about the journey along the way πŸ€—πŸ’—

So happy with the results πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Have a beautifully slow Sunday πŸ’—

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Mistakes are lessons learned

Hello World,

Not every day is a good day and that is really okay… We all make some mistakes don’t let it ruin your day πŸ€”πŸ˜‘πŸ€”

Don’t beat yourself up for any mistakes as long as you gave it your best… Mistakes are lessons we all have to learn… Let them go and get some rest…. Tomorrow is a brand new day and a fresh new start… Don’t carry the mistakes of today so they tear your tomorrow apart…


You all know my story and I only need $328 more to pay the mechanic to be able to continue my journey and convert the bus like I promised my son I would do… I cannot do this alone and need your help to do so. I’m so very close and with your help I can continue the journey to heal my heart and learn to live my life without my son… It’s not going to be an easy journey spreading his ashes at all the places he wants me too yet I know that I AM ready because I have all of you the active link is below… please help if you are able or share the link if you can…. I AM grateful❀

When Things Go Wrong …

Always Remember That Life Goes On

Hello World,

Life isn’t at all predictable and things don’t always go as planned…. Yet we all have the choice to start over as scary as it can be…. Staying stuck is not any fun neither is a living a life of misery.

Don’t ever be afraid to start over because mistakes are lessons in life and starting over is a chance to rebuild your life your way.


So this morning as I sat here dwelling about the estimate I got from the mechanic for the bus, I realized I was starting to go down a very unnecessary road… A road of why me and of now what??? A road of doubt and fear. AHHHHHHH I write about this kind of stuff all the time and caught myself not practicing what I preach so to speak….

So here’s my dilemma…To get the bus mechanically sound so I don’t get stuck on the road, it’s going to cost $628, then insurance and registration is another $225 … Sooooo here I am again asking for your help… My gofundme campaign is still active so if anyone can help please click the active link below or share it so I can get my journey started. 

You all know my story and I cannot do this all by myself… I really would like to be on the road by July cause otherwise I’ll be traveling in the snow and the places my son wanted his ashes spread are closed from mid October through May… I am so ready to begin yet didn’t take any of this into consideration cause I was so excited about getting the bus… Lesson learned… 

So there’s my dilemma and I’m asking for help to get this done. Thanks to all that have helped me get this far and those that continue to be my light when mine starts fading… For ALL of you I AM grateful β€πŸ™β€

Let Go & Forgive

Mistakes Are Lessons Learned

Happy Easter My Friends 🐰🐣🌷

Today is a day of letting go and forgiveness & forgiving yourself is just as important as forgiving others if not more important.

We’ve all made mistakes and we’ll probably make more, yet beating ourselves up for something we cannot change is toxic for ourselves and for others.

There’s many people that pass through our lives that we sometimes don’t want to forgive or we think they aren’t deserving of forgiveness. Yet forgiving others that don’t necessarily deserve it, isn’t about them, it’s about you.

When we hold on to a hurt it festers and we tend to relive it over and over and that isn’t good for or own well being. Letting go and forgiving is about making peace within. It’s about showing yourself to move forward, letting go, forgiving and a lesson learned not to repeat it again.

Mistakes are lessons and lessons to be learned… SOOOOO let go of the past, forgive in the moment and move on to better and brighter days ahead.

Learn to let go, learn to forgive and live your life again

Have a beautiful day my friends πŸ’“πŸ™πŸ’“
