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—

That Moment Of Clarity

When You Realize The Possibilities Are Endless


Hello World,

Today I decided to jump through a huge fear I’ve always had and make the legs for my bed in the bus and although I’ve used a saw many times before, I had never used an electric skill saw when I built things in the past because I’ve seen way too many scary movies in my 57 yrs and so I always had others or the lumber store cut the wood into the size I needed… You can laugh now ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am ๐Ÿ˜‚

Needless to say…I DID IT WOO HOO โค๐Ÿ˜


After I cut all 6 of them, I secured them to the box spring and gave them their first coat of a moisture and waterproof primer and talk about an intense moment of clarity… And that’s why I wrote this tonight ๐Ÿค—


No matter what the fear is.. no matter how big or how small… When you accomplish something you were afraid to do and you get that moment of clarity… you realize that the possibilities in your life are endless and there really isn’t anything you can’t do!!!โค๐Ÿ˜

Don’t allow fear to stop you from moving forward, don’t let fear stop you from believing you CAN do whatever you set your mind to… Always believe you can and YOU ALWAYS WILL! Sweet dreams my friends โค

Iโ€™m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night.

Thank you all for sharing youโ€ฆ I truly am grateful…โค๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค—

Live Your Life Your Way

Don’t Settle For Less


Hello World,

I almost didn’t post today because I’ve got so much on my mind and started to doubt myself from people telling me how to live and how I should be processing my son passing away…. 

Why do people feel they have the right to tell you how you should be living… I truly don’t get it!!! Everyone thinks they know how you should live your life and most of the time their own lives suck!!! Yet they insist on telling you how to live and thinking they know best.

Of course I had someone tell me AGAIN, that traveling around solo isn’t a good idea… That being alone spreading my sons ashes will only make me lonely and hurt even more… I almost started to doubt myself and what I want to do… Then I started thinking about what I write about every day…

Don’t allow others to make you doubt yourself… Live how you want to live, design the life you want and don’t let anyone stop you from doing so… It’s your life, live it your way!!!! So that’s exactly what I’m going to continue to do!!! Live MY life as I see fit for ME ๐Ÿ˜Š

You all know my story and I am only $1000 from reaching my dream and getting that shuttle bus. Iโ€™m so close and have 10 days to get it paid off and get it off the property where it is and I am asking for your help because I cannot do this aloneโ€ฆโ€ฆ.

We canโ€™t do everything by ourselves and thereโ€™s no shame in asking for helpโ€ฆ So here I am again asking for your help to please help me get this bus!!!

https://www.gofundme.com/riccis-healing-journey

I totally get that times are tough and a lot of you don’t know me, yet please help if you are able or share my story so that together we can make this happen. I am so ready to begin this journey.. Iโ€™m ready to spread my sons ashes at the places he wanted me tooโ€ฆ 

Itโ€™s time for me to heal and itโ€™s time for me to live again. The active link is above and below my friends. Please help me make this my reality so I can learn how to carry this pain lighter and honor my son as well.

Much love to you all and thank you for always being here for me!
