You Can Plan The Plan

But Not The Outcome

Hello World ๐Ÿค—

This morning I was talking to a friend about how when we make a plan, we tend to try to plan it all the way out to the end… and most of the time because of bumps along the way or because we change our minds…the outcome of the plan we made isn’t the same or turns out totally different then we planned it originally๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

It made me think about the bus ๐Ÿค”

When I first got the bus I really thought I knew exactly how I wanted the inside to be and since then have changed it a few times..๐Ÿ˜ฑ each time I’ve changed it, it’s turned out way better then my original plan, yet I still changed it from the original plan… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm ๐Ÿค”

That’s what made me think of this poem… 

I picked the background for the same reason… 

If you look at the road in the picture it looks like the end goes down a hill… Yet does it? 

It could be straight…it could turn… or it could be a dead end! 

We can’t predict how the road goes.. and we don’t know until we get there…๐Ÿ™„

Moral of this story… 

We can plan the plan yet we cannot plan the outcome… 

All we have is the here and now… and all we can do is take the steps that lead us to where we want to go… 

Yet we can’t ever assume or predict that our plan will turn out exactly how we planned it…๐Ÿ˜‰

Live in the moment my friends cause we cannot predict what will be… We only have the here and now cause the future’s not ours to see ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—.. 

Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!” 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’—

The Past

Does Not Define You

Hello World 

This morning I was talking with a friend about how often we allow our past to define who we are and how NOT ok that really is. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ

We all have gone through good times and bad. We all have done good things, made mistakes and have done things we may not be proud of,  yet that doesn’t define who we are and it certainly doesn’t mean that we are bad people or that because we had a not so great past it is who we are ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Different circumstances make us do different things and how we may have acted or reacted in the past doesn’t mean we would act or react the same way to the same situation today. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

We all have a past and we all have made mistakes… 

Good bad or indifferent remember that the past is the past… 

We can’t change it… 

All we can do is learn from it and keep going… One of my favorite sayings is… The first time is a mistake… if we do it again it’s a choice!!! 

All the things you’ve gone through have made you who you are and the past is just that.. 

The past!! 

So don’t let your past define you or stop you from moving on… Keep on striving to better yourself because everything in the past is gone! ๐Ÿค—

It’s A Form Of Self Punishment

Hello World, 

Happy New Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

There’s a song by Nina Simone called “Feeling Good” it’s been done by various artists yet Michael Buble’s version I love and this morning as I was doing my morning routine and listening to it… I started thinking about things in my past and present and really looked into if I had any regrets and I can honestly say no… ๐Ÿค”

Of course there are things I think I could’ve done better or even not at all… Yet regrets nope I have none.. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ณ

We all have times where we think woulda, coulda, shoulda… Yet I wouldn’t be where I am today or the person I am if I hadn’t done the things I’ve done… ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚…

Moral of this story: Don’t ever regret things from your past, things that you didn’t get to say or to do… Cause regret is a form of self punishment and it’s really not good for you too.. 

Let go of your past and release all that is gone.. Cause TODAY is a new dawn.. It’s a new day.. It’s a new life.. And it’s time to feel…. 


Have a beautiful day world๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Learn, Reflect and Let It Go

Don’t Engage In Ignorance, Just Turn and Walk Away

Hello World,

People are so quick to tell you how you should or shouldn’t feel… What you should do with your life, how you should do it and why you shouldn’t do what you want to…

Today I had someone approach me because I was crying/mourning about my son, alone by the river and she proceeded to tell me that it’s been a year so I shouldn’t STILL be upset,… Then went on to tell me I should just dump his ashes in the river and move on, that he’s gone and won’t know the difference and then proceeded to tell me that it’s foolish for me to travel around the country sprinkling his ashes because I should never travel alone…. AHHHHHHHHH WTF????

All I did was look up to the sky and very loudly thanked the universe for the person I’ve grown to be…and honestly she should have done it too actually, because a a year ago I would have drowned her ass!!!! Instead I turned towards her, smiled, got up and walked away…. I guess my healing has begun ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™

Don’t ever allow anyone’s ignorance, lack of cooth, negativity and or opinions dictate how you feel about anything…. No one can truly make you feel anyway unless you allow them too…. 

Learn, reflect, let go & move on… It’s your life to live not there’s.

Let Go & Forgive

Mistakes Are Lessons Learned

Happy Easter My Friends ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฃ๐ŸŒท

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 ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’“
