Recover From Negative Thinking

Is Not As Hard As It Seems


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

Last night I was up pretty late talking to a friend that wanted to know how I stay so positive through all that I’ve been through, especially since my son passed away and I really had to think about it ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

My friend is the type of person that always goes straight to the negative about almost everything. She doesn’t think the world is against her yet she does go straight to the “what if’s” immediately. 

Last night she asked me what she could do to change her mindset to being more like mine.. More positive and stop going to the “what if’s” all the time and I said: 

“Laugh hard at the yuck, when things happen find a solution and move on… immediately!” ๐Ÿค”..

Now I’m not always positive, yet I try my best not to think of the “what if this or that happens” cause I feel I’d never get anywhere thinking like that… 

When something happens I usually laugh.. Hard.. cause crying over spilt milk doesn’t clean it up ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™„.

I’m fully aware that shit happens that we don’t expect and I sure don’t look at the world through rose colored glasses, yet I don’t assume the worst ever. 

I basically live moment by moment and when things happen I immediately look for a solution and never ever do the poor pitiful me or why me thing cause I don’t believe things happen TO ME…

I just believe that shit happens ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜€. (Sounding a little Forrest Gump here ๐Ÿ˜)

So this morning when I woke up I tried to think of something that could make her laugh when shit happens and I immediately thought of this poem, made a pic and sent it to her… 

I told her to hang it up and anytime something happens and she finds herself going to the negative, go look in a mirror and say 

“Hello My name is _____ and I’m a recovering negative thinker!” 

When she got the photo she said all she could do was laugh and it worked… ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜Ž

So my friends… 

Today if drama comes calling, respond but don’t react.. Cause laughter and a big huge smile will stop negative thinking in it’s tracks ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Have a drama free 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—

People Will Be People

No Matter What You Say or Do


Hello World

“Sometimes it’s not the people that change… It’s their mask that falls off!” ~Unknown Author 

I’m not sure why it always amazes me when people act out of sorts… I’m always me and I’ve been the same all my life! Yet when people do a total 360ยฐ I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฑ

This morning as I was doing my morning reading, I came across the above quote and it hit me hard because I’m actually going through that with a couple people that live where I do.. I do believe that people come and go into our lives for a reason.. 

Whether it be for a lesson or for life yet I don’t understand how people can be one way one minute and flip like a coin the next… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

My biggest pet peeve is a two-faced person.. Maybe it’s because I’m so up front.. Maybe it’s because I’m too trusting and see the best in everyone.. Maybe it’s because I have a huge heart and am a giver… Maybe it’s because I’m an adult and don’t sugar coat shit.. I’m NOT Willy Wonka… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ …

I use to have no problem confronting someone and was never afraid of confrontation yet throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s not worth my peace of mind or energy to engage in high school he said she said nah nah nah nah nah games..Yet it still at times gets to me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Moral of this story: People will be people no matter what we say or do… Just be yourself and walk away don’t let others negativity get to you!!!!

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Never Ever Doubt Yourself

Believe In Your Dreams and Your Goals


Hello World

When we share our dreams and goals with others, many will not believe that it’s possible. Many will tell you that your dreams or goals are too big and that you’ll never reach them.. Some will put doubt and fear in your head as well… yet who’s dreams are they? Theirs or yours?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I woke up thinking about all the people that thought I was crazy (after my son passed away) for wanting to get a bus and convert it into a living home on wheels. To travel all over the country sprinkling his ashes at all the beautiful places that we wanted too see and especially to do it alone.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

It made me giggle and actually start laughing hard cause at one point all their doubts and negativity stated to make me doubt that I could do it too… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” yet look at where I am now! 

The bus is almost finished and my journey will soon begin and I can smile at all the doubters cause in my heart I knew I’d win ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

Now when I look back at things I giggle and I laugh… cause I removed the negativity in my life and started to release the pain of my past. I believed with all my heart that I could make this dream come true, and I did exactly that with positivity and YOU.. 

So push all doubt out of your head and push negative people away from you.. They’re your dreams and it’s your life to live how you want too!!”

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

There Really Are Earth Angels

They Are Your Real True Friends

Hello World,

Don’t ever take for granted the people that go out of their way to wipe away your tears and do whatever they can to help you get outta your head…. Today one of my friends did that out of the blue… How she knew I was having a very difficult day is beyond me yet there she was ready to wipe my tears and allow me to feel every emotion I was going through and i am beyond grateful. those are the people that are true Earth angels and don’t ever let them go!!! โค๐Ÿ˜‡โค

Most of you know what I’m going through and that this is a very hard month for me… Yet after witnessing a beautiful morning of kindness, it made me miss my son even more… 

Michael was a beautiful Earth Angel and touched more hearts then I ever imagined… The 30th will be two years that he went on a different journey and as you know I’m not one to hide my feelings I’ve learned to embrace them and allow myself to feel… 

Yet as much as I’m trying to embrace the 30th and make it a day full of beautiful memories I’m having a really hard time and I just wanted you all to know I will not let you all go… 

Thank you for always being here, thank you for wiping my tears… Thank you for sharing your hearts with me, thanks for taking away my fears… 

I just needed to say thank you because you all mean the world to me.. thank you for being my Earth Angels and allowing me to simply be me… Much love to you all my friends… For you all I am truly grateful.. 

Much love from all of me to ask of you โค

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…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜

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.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

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 ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป
