The Choice Is Up To You

Choose To Be Happy

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends โค๏ธ
It always makes me giggle when someone says that they woke up in a bad mood ๐Ÿค”

I mean seriously… How can you wake up in a bad mood???

I understand if you slept crappy or something kept waking you up that you may be tired..

Yet how can anyone seriously WAKE UP in a bad mood? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”…

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best person to interact with as soon as I open my eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ yet that is cause my blood hasn’t stated circulating and my brain just needs to fully wake up before I start rambling or have a full blown conversation (my coffee addiction helps that haha) yet I can’t ever say that I opened my eyes and woke up in a bad mood ๐Ÿค”…

We truly do have control on how we feel each and every day…

We can choose to smile as soon as we wake up or we can choose to be a grouch…

The key word is CHOOSE…

Cause we are totally control of how we want to be when we open our eyes in the morning…

Sooooo make the choice to be happy and choose to smile when you open your eyes… It really is that simple ๐Ÿ™„

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—

Don’t Listen To That Negative Voice

That Sits Up In Your Head

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This past weekend it literally rained non stop which of course prevented me from doing a few things I need to get done on the outside of the bus and also gave me way too much time in my head thinking about things I could change or things I could’ve done better ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ซ

We all have that little critic in our head that tries to tell us we’re not good enough or that things that we do aren’t right and it can be very strong at times and can put up a hell of a fight…

Yet this past weekend I actually caught that little devil trying to fill my head with doubts and so instead of letting it win I turned it around by looking at what the bus looked like when I got it and what it looks like today and WOW what a difference (SEE BELOW โžก BEFORE & AFTER PIC)

So my friends…

Don’t ever let that negative critic tell you what to do… Cause more than half the time it’s wrong and says things that are not true… Practice staying positive no matter what you do… Cause positivity always pushes negativity away from you!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Stay positive world ๐Ÿ’—

Being An Adult Is Overrated

Bring Out The Kid In You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Being an adult is so overrated!!

I was working on the bench in the bus and the kid that I babysit for was riding around on his hoverboard.

He’s 8 and can fly around on that thing like no other ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

I stopped what I was doing to watch him for a sec and when he saw me he came over and asked if I wanted to try it ๐Ÿค”

My mind immediately went to..

What if I fall?

Omg what if someone see’s me fall?

What if I look like an idiot??

Blah blah blah!

It made me think about how when I was a kid if he would have asked I wouldn’t have thought twice about it and would have jumped on it immediately and tried it ๐Ÿค”

What happened to that fearless little kid that wasn’t ever afraid too try something, especially if it looked like fun? ๐Ÿค”

I BECAME AN ADULT THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED!!! ๐Ÿ˜ 

As adults we tend to overthink everything…

Especially if it’s something new, something we’ve never done before and honestly that sucks…

We overthink things to the point where it prevents us from trying new things… It prevents us from venturing out to do things that we want to do and that’s so not good…๐Ÿ˜ 

What’s the worst that could happen?

I’d fall???

Someone would see me and laugh??

So what!!!

So needless to say, I got out of my head and said sure why not, it looked like fun and why should I stop myself from having fun?

I did fall… ๐Ÿ˜

Someone did see me and lost it laughing, which of course made me laugh and I got up and tried it again and guess what..

Woo Hoo I did it and had a blast!! ๐Ÿ˜

Moral of this story…

Don’t allow overthinking to stop you from trying something new… Bring out that little kid and try everything you want to do… Do not overthink things, cause that’s what will make you quit… Let the little kid in you say:

“Come on let’s go for it!” ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

Have a great day ๐Ÿ’—

Life Changes

Are Inevitable


Hello World 

For the past month or so every morning when I got up I would get big time butterflies in my stomach and for the past week it didn’t happen at all ๐Ÿค” 

Until today ๐Ÿ˜ฎ this morning there was a huge colony of butterflies in my stomach as I walked towards the bus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and I immediately started laughing because it hit me as to why it was happening ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Since I brought the bus home and started converting it… Every morning I got excited about what I was going to be doing in the bus that day… 

Excitement butterflies ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ 

And each day as I watched the transformation take place the butterflies went from tiny ones to the massive colony that is in my stomach today and it’s because the bus is almost done and my dream and journey is literally right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ.

Am I excited? Yes!! 

Am I a tad scared? HELL YES I AM!!!! 

This is A HUGE life change for me…. Something I’ve never ever done in many ways and yet it’s also been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Life keeps moving no matter what and life changes happen too… Yet if changing gets to scary, we allow the fear to takeover what we want to do… 

So do not let fear stop you from living all your dreams… Cause it will be very scary at first yet after you do it you’ll realize it wasn’t as scary as it seemed๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Start A Idea Garden

Your Ideas Can Bloom and Blossom Too

Hello World, 

Yesterday a friend and follower of my blog @thecobweboriumemporium (Cobs) made a comment about taking a blooming and blossoming day and I could not get that out of my mind cause I really loved the way it sounded ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’— and this morning when I woke up this poem popped into my head and it’s true๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ˜€.

We all have many great ideas of things we’d like to do,  yet we tend to shrug all of them off when they’re not fully planned out too.. So start an idea garden and fully plant the seeds.. And as you go along nourishing your ideas you can pull out all the weeds.. ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿƒ.

Keep nourishing your ideas, don’t give up and do not quit… Cause your ideas are like a garden that nourishes when you tend to it!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’—.

Have a beYOUtiful blooming and blossoming day world! ๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’—

Self-Empathy, Self-Love

Have Compassion For Yourself Too


Hello World,

This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too… 

So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest ๐Ÿค—โค

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

In order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while Iโ€™m stopped at night without using the engines battery, I need a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries which costs $364 total. I would also like to get a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times and the cost for the kit is $390. My gofundme link is still active and is also just below, for anyone that can help. Thank you to all that have helped me get to where I am today, words canโ€™t express my gratitude for you all ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—
