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! πŸ˜πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”.

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! πŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’β˜ΊπŸ˜’…

Have a beYOUtiful day world πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—

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 hardπŸ€”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€”πŸ˜ πŸ€” 

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! πŸ™„

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

It’s Okay To Take A Break

You Do Not Have To Quit


Hello World,

Another day to remember to practice what I preach 😱😱😱 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 πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„ and if course this poem came to mind… πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„.

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. πŸ˜‘πŸ™„πŸ˜‘…

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…πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

So today is 82 degrees with 91% humidity AHHHHHHHHH 😫😫😫😫😨😨😨😨… 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 🌻🌍🌻

Life Is Filled With Lessons

When We Look At Things That Way


Hello World,

Yesterday I couldn’t get my thoughts to settle down.. it was a very emotional day and I couldn’t stop and think… Of why my head would not shut up and let me swim not sink… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

We all go though days like that and there’s really no reason why…  yesterday was a day like that for me so I just processed it and cried…  today I’m feeling better and I woke up with a smile πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»  I’m back to working on the bus at least for a little while πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

Not every day will be a sad one, not every day will be good… Just process what you’re going through and go through the day as you should… Cause life is filled with lessons when we look at them that way… And when we fully realize that we’ll have a much better day… πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ˜€ 

I’m back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son spreading his ashes where I promised him I would and live our dream ❀ The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.πŸ˜€β€πŸ€—

I am still needing a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. πŸ€—πŸ™

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€

Nothing Blooms All Year Long

Don’t Expect That You Should Too


Hello World,

As I sit here in bed for the past two days sick and feeling like crap… A friend of mine brought me some pretty flowers and said get well fast and these are to brighten your day…. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

It made me think of the flowers and how they bloom, then wither away.. And year after year they come back and bloom again and are just as beautiful as before..🌻🌻🌻

Our lives are just like flowers and different chapters in our lives wither away too…. Just remember like flowers are beautiful and come back… No matter what you go through you will always come back and bloom too!!! ❀🌻❀🌻❀🌻❀

Goodnight Universe β€πŸ€—β€

Spread A Little Kindness

To All You Do and Do Not Know

Hello World,

What a beautiful act of kindness I got to witness today…. 😍😘😍😘😍😘😍😘😍

As I was checking out of my least favorite store ever (the one that begins with WAL lol lol) There were 2 people in front of me and the one checking out was I would say in her late 70’s to mid 80’s… 

Now I’ve read about these things happening yet never saw until the other day and I LOST IT…. She had the basic staples like bread, milk, eggs etc and when she saw the total she was over by about $15 and as she was trying to decide what to put back I stepped up and asked how much she needed and before the cashier could answer the woman in front of me said… How much is her total amount.. the cashier told her and not only did the lady pay for it.. she immediately bought her a $100 Walmart gift card and gave that to her too…. 

Yep she lost it, I lost it, the cashier lost it and all the nice lady said was “kindness isn’t something we should TRY to do its something we should all do every single day…” She said “it’s not about money, it’s not about things, it’s just about caring for others and that’s what makes us human beings….”

I told her I was going to use that in my post and I would have taken a picture yet the elderly lady said she didn’t want one taken cause she wasn’t up to par… We all laughed, smiled and hugged and that was then end of that.πŸ€—πŸ˜€

Moral of this story… “It’s not about money, it’s not about things… Being kind to everyone is about being a “real” human being!!!”

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

A Goal Is A Goal

No Matter How Big, No Matter How Small


Hello World

I’ve always been the type of parent that taught my kids to know that as long as they believed in themselves and worked to get them, that they could do anything they set their mind to and if it makes them happy then I’d be happy too…πŸ€—β€

Tonight while talking to my oldest on the phone he said he had a surprise when he sees me of 2 small goals he achieved and that he hoped I’d be proud of him when I saw them and him… Yeah I lost it… And yes I told him I’m ALWAYS PROUD of him yet it also made me realize how much we look too others for validation…πŸ™„

I get that I’m his mom and we always wanna make our parents proud yet no matter what other people say… parents or not…πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

A goal is a goal and no matter how big, no matter how small once you achieve one you can then achieve them all… πŸ™

So no matter what other people say or what other people do…The goals that you set are goals just for you…So don’t ever give up and reach for the stars…Cause achieving those goals makes YOU proud of WHO you are!!❀

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 2000 watt or higher inverter, a 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. πŸ™
