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’—

Scared vs Fear

There Really Is A Difference

Hello World, 

This morning I was reading a comment my friend Cobs (@thecobweboriumemporium) made about my post yesterday and it really hit home because she reminded me that there is a difference between being scared and fear… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yesterday in my post I said that it was a tad scary knowing that my journey and a new chapter in my life was about to begin and it is true… 

It’s something new and something I’ve never done yet there is no fear at all because I know I can always go home and my reasoning for getting the bus was also because if I pull into somewhere that just doesn’t feel right I could just get in the drivers seat and drive off without having to go outside๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I get so many people that ask me if I’m afraid and or don’t get how a female could travel around the country in a bus ALONE without being in total fear.. Yet Being that I listen to my gut and or follow my instincts I’m actually very excited and not fearful at all. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—

Fear is a noun and can also be used as a verb. Scared is an adjective. Fear is an emotion. Scared is the state of experiencing fear like being spooked at a haunted house ๐Ÿ˜จ Fear is usually long term and much harder to push past than the temporary feeling of getting or being scared.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As my friend Cobs said… Being scared is your bodies way of telling you to be aware and to take a look around and make sure no dangers there… 

So when you’re starting something new and you feel you can’t go on… Push past that scary feeling and keep on moving on โ˜บ๐Ÿค—

Have a beYOUtiful day world and thank you Cobs for the inspiration my post today.. Love you huge my friend ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

When You Face Fear In Eye

You Can Then Make It Disappear


Hello World,

I was talking with a friend tonight about getting stuck and being afraid of stepping out of her comfort zone and how she’s allowed fear to control so much of her life and that she wished she could see the fear like it was a person or had a name and it made a lot of sense to me why sometimes it’s hard to face something you can’t see and this popped up in my head…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

When fear stops you from doing something it’s really just in your head… Yet if we give that fear a name is easier not to dread… We can’t fight a faceless enemy, so give a name to the fear… cause then you can look it in the eye and you can make it disappear โค๐Ÿ˜โค

There are a few items I still need to get so I can complete the bus and make it livable.. If anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt or higher inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. โค๐Ÿ™โค

My gofundme link is still active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please email me, send me a direct message or comment below. The active link is below. Please help if you are able or share the link so I can continue converting the bus and move forward with my journey to heal and honor my son  ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™

Detours and Obstacles

Tell You To Slow Down


Hello World,

All weekend I’ve been trying to get the last few seats out of the bus and every time we went to do it, it would start POURING.

Now you would think because the seats are inside that it wouldn’t matter if it’s raining… NOT… being that is a two person job with one person under the bus holding the bolts taught while the other one is inside unscrewing them it can’t be raining because the ground is dirt and it floods easily at this campground… 

So when frustration started to get to me.. I remembered that sometimes obstacles are saying SLOW DOWN.. Especially with me cause I’ll run myself ragged being a I want it NOW type of person lol… So needless to say I had to step back and take a detour and that’s ok….. 

Moral of the story… Detours are Obstacles don’t happen to make you quit.. sometimes it just means to slow down a little bit ๐Ÿ™„

There are a few costly items I need help with to complete the bus and so Iโ€™m asking if anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt or higher inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit and a small electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated โค

I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please email me, send me a direct message or comment below. The active link is below โค๐Ÿ™โค 

Thank you all for all your help itโ€™s time to get the bus ready for my beautiful journey to heal and to my journey to continue to growโ€ฆ Much love my friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒป

If It’s Worth Having

It’s Worth Waiting For


Hello World,

Today as I was cleaning the bus, I got an almost overwhelming feeling of gratitude. It’s been two years since my son and I started our plans of saving for a bus to convert and make home so we could travel all over the country to see all the amazing places we dreamed of seeing. 

It’s also been almost 2 years since he went on a different journey and it’s only been 5 months since I realized that I must continue in order to heal and keep the promise to him that I made โค

My point is I’ve been waiting a long time for this to happen and throughout my devestating loss and my fight NOT to give up… I have our bus and I AM ready to continue with my dreams and his โค 

It’s so so sooooo worth everything I’ve had to endure to get to this point. ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ™

So always remember that if there’s something out there you can’t stop thinking about and want with every inch of your being DON’T QUIT, DON’T GIVE UP because ANYTHING and I mean ANYTHING worth having… Is DEFINITELY worth waiting for! because once you achieve it, you too will feel unexplainably AMAZING!! Sweet dreams my friends โค๐Ÿ™

Thereโ€™s a few costly items Iโ€™m going to need help with to complete the bus and so Iโ€™m asking if anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit and a small electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated โ€ฆ I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ Or if anyone has one of those items they would be willing to donate please DM me or comment below.

Rejection Is A Reflection

Of How Big Your Dreams Really Are
