Bus Update & Upgrade

Dinner Ever Give Up On Your Dreams

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

Today I woke up filled with energy and decided to do some upgrades to the inside of the bus. ๐Ÿ˜

I removed the wheelchair ramp from the back which gave me two more feet of space, so I unscrewed my bed, pushed it back against the back wall, which allows me to sit on it when the back door is open and look outside ๐Ÿ˜ secured it and with the extra 2 feet I decided to build another bench that goes along the whole length of my bed. I put hinges on the tops so I could store stuff inside, covered it with foam and material and woo hoo I’m loving it. ๐Ÿ’–.. see pics โฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ

The bench that my furbaby is on slides out to be a twin bed for guests which I love too. Tomorrow my oldest is going to install the second solar panel and my mechanic is going to fix my exhaust leak Sunday or Monday… So very excited and the inside is done ๐Ÿ˜ that is until I decide to change something else hahahaha but basically it is done. Once it’s mechanically sound I’ll be on my way… ๐Ÿ’–

Just wanted to give everyone an update on my progress since my upsetting setback a couple weeks ago… Shit happens yet there is nothing that’s going to stop me from living my dream… Perseverance, faith and belief is what makes dreams come true!!

Don’t ever quit my friends ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Monday Isn’t A Bad Day

It’s Just Another Day

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

It always makes me laugh when I open up any social media platform and there are tons of posts about it being Monday ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

When I worked in corporate America I never understood why people hated Mondays so much….

For me it was the day that set up my whole week… Yet everyone else dreaded it and made me wonder if it was the day they dreaded or the job itself they dreaded๐Ÿค”…

My point in all this is that technically Monday is just another day… For some it’s the beginning of the work week and for some it’s not but technically it is just another day…

It’s not about what day it is.. It’s about how you look at the day in general… It’s all in your mindset… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜

So don’t make the excuse that it’s Monday cause it’s just another day… If you can do something tomorrow… You can also do it today!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

Have a fantabulous day world โค๏ธ

Rearrange Your To-Do List

So Your Motivation Doesn’t Go Out The Door

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This morning when I woke up I looked at the bus and knew I had to get busy organizing things under my bed to make the things I use frequently more easily accessible … Yet my motivation for wanting to do it was gone gone gone ๐Ÿ˜ฅ….

I actually felt like it’s what I do every day, constantly organizing the bus and although it’s not, I really didn’t want to tackle it cause it’s a pain in the ass getting under my bed ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yet with my journey right around the corner I have got to get it done so I’m not constantly taking things out, putting them back, searching for stuff and feeling totally unorganized cause I can’t find something…๐Ÿ˜•

So I knew I had to switch my thinking ๐Ÿค” and mix up how I was going to tackle the job so it wasn’t something I dreaded ๐Ÿ˜ต because I ready do have to get it done.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

My point in all this is…

There are certain things that we do every day that wind up feeling repetitive yet they are things that we must do…

So instead of looking at them negatively do them in a way that works for you!!!

We don’t wake up all motivated to do our daily tasks each day..

So switch up how you tackle them and then get them out of your way!!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Have a productive day world ๐Ÿ’—

Be Kind Whenever Possible

It’s Always Possible


Hello World, 

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right… Choose being kind and you’ll always be right!” ~ Dalai Lama

Growing up my mom always use to say “kill them with kindness” or “you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar!” And of course I had to learn that the hard way as most of us do… 

Yet the older I get the more I see just how true it actually is and not just towards another.. It’s true for my inner peace as well! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

No-one or nothing is worth getting all worked up about.. It disturbs your peace of mind and truly disrupts your whole day… 

So for today instead of reacting negatively back to a yucky situation.. Step back, process it, breathe, smile and kill the situation with kindness.. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel.. 

Cause negativity has no recourse to a positive response! ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’…

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Self-Care

Needs To Be A Habit Too


Hello World 

“Sometimes The Most Important Thing In Your Whole Day, Is The Rest We Take Between Two Deep Breaths!” Etty Hillesum

Last night while reading the diary of Etty Hillesum, I came across the above quote and it made me think of how we constantly put everything and everyone before ourselves, sticking ourselves on the back burner with the “I’ll take care of me later” mindset and it hit me kinda hard๐Ÿค”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค” 

What about ourselves??? 

We make it a daily habit to take care of everyone and everything else yet the most important thing to do is to take care of ourselves and we totally slack on it and then wonder where frustration, resentments and all that other crap comes from! ๐Ÿ™„

Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

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
