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’—

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˜€

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—

Have Faith In Where You’re Going

Take Pride In How Far You’ve Come


Hello World

The past couple of days I decided to take a break from all my social media accounts and focus 100% on finishing the inside of the bus (not a great multitasker) and now the inside is 98% finished๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€ 

I just need to make sure things are secure so I don’t have an avalanche driving down the road and finish putting in the things i need for my journey ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—.. Will post pics this evening cause on Monday the new tires and solar system gets done and omg I’ll be ready to begin๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Of course I changed a few things and made more storage space cause I really don’t like wasted space and needed it too yet I knew that would happen๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜‰… Especially since this will be my home for a long time ๐Ÿค—

Yet I’m really happy with how it turned out and it made me take a look at where I stated, where I am today and where I’m going and that’s when this poem popped into my head ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค—..

We get all happy when we reach a goal yet we forget where we came from… So don’t forget how you started and all the work you’ve done… Have faith in where you’re heading too & take pride in how far you’ve come… Cause the journey is about all the little steps and all the challenges you’ve overcome ๐Ÿ’•โ˜บ๐Ÿ’•โ˜บ๐Ÿ’•

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

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’—

Time Never Changesย 

The Hours Remain The Same


Hello World,  

The last few days I caught myself stressing about the 4th being right around the corner and looking at the things I still need to do to make the bus ready and boy oh boy I’ve been a mess ๐Ÿ˜ต๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ต.

So yesterday I meditated and prayed a lot because it was making anxious and sad that I might not be ready in 10 days… And this morning I woke up to an email from the organization in the Keys that said because they don’t have all the supplies needed down there yet that it wouldn’t be until AFTER the 15th before they will ask the volunteers to start going down there to help rebuild…

Although I did want to leave on Michael’s birthday I know that the “date” doesn’t matter cause it’s the journey itself that does… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Moral of the story: Don’t let hurry worry get stuck in your mind cause the hours of the day don’t change so don’t stress out about the time. We don’t have to always get things done in one day.. So take your time, pace yourself and don’t let stress get in your way๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Always Focus On One Thing At A Time

That Way You Won’t Lose Your Mind ๐Ÿ˜€


Hello World,

On my way back from my trip all I could think of was getting busy on the bus and the thoughts and ideas of what I want to do were flooding my brain big-time and that’s what made me think of this poem today ๐Ÿค”

We have so many thoughts or ideas that pop into our head.. yet if we try to focus on  all of them then the ideas and thoughts we dread… ๐Ÿค”

So choose the one that inspires you and push the rest to the back of your mind.. cause the only way to get things done is to focus on one at a time โค๐Ÿ˜€โค

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป
