Fear Is Just A Feeling

And Feelings Come & Go

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s kinda ironic when there’s something that you really want to do yet fear of doing it creeps in and you either keep putting it off or you wind up not doing it at all ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’ve always been a perfectionist be when it comes to doing stuff and always do a ton of research prior to doing anything I’ve never done before as well as asking people that have done it so I’m doing it correctly which I do believe is a good thing ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜… And I’ve been really excited about setting the solar up on the bus for a long time and over a month ago I ordered everything I need to do it yet because I’m not an expert when it comes to solar I keep putting it off rather than just doing it…๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฉ…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It’s not like it takes a rocket scientist to do it, it’s pretty self explanatory yet I’ve allowed the fear of not ever doing it before get the best of me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ go figure huh?!?!?…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„ So I decided today that I’m hooking the solar up no matter what.. After all I won’t know if it works if I don’t ๐Ÿ™„
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My point in all this is… When there’s something that you really really want to do… Don’t let the fear of never doing it before stop you… Cause if you do you’ll never do it… We are so much stronger than we give ourselves credit for and fear is just a feeling that we can always push past when we put our minds to it… It’s just a matter of doing it ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜…So don’t let fear stop you or let it get in your way..Tell the fear to kiss your butt and do it anyway.. Cause fear is just a feeling and feelings come and go..Push past the fear itself.. your stronger than you know ๐Ÿ˜

Happy day world ๐Ÿ’—

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—

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’—
