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 😱

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 πŸ€”

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 πŸ€”

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

I BECAME AN ADULT THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED!!! 😠

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…😠

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… 😁

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!! 😁

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!” πŸ€—πŸ˜

Have a great day πŸ’—

Planning Can Be Stressful

And Overwhelming Too

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—πŸ€—

It’s really frustrating sometimes when you’re trying to plan things out and you feel like you’re going in circles cause you don’t really know where to start..πŸ€”πŸ™„

Since I got the bus and even before that, I’ve been saving all the places I want to see in my journey and OMG there’s over 205 places at National Parks, Forests and Monuments that I want to go to and that’s not counting all the people I want to see along the way 😱

So I started making a list of the places, where they are, what parks or forests they are in blah blah blah and omg I’m a confused mess hahahaha πŸ˜±πŸ€”πŸ™„

In Olympic National Park alone there’s like 35 places I want to see… 

So I need to make calls to the ranger stations to find out which campground is centrally located to see the most etc… 

Building the bus is easy… 

Figuring out where to start, where to camp etc is gonna be the death of me ha πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ˜±

Some just say wing it…

Which would be ok if I knew the areas or have been there before but NOOOOOOOO my Virgo ass wants things planned out… 😠😱😠 And I have all the van lifers and photographers that I follow on Instagram and YouTube to thank for my confusion aka @swagginscottricks the main culprit hahahaha… 

Stop posting all these beautiful places before my list gets out of control hahaha… 

Shit it already is out of control…

205 places?? Really??? 😱😱😱

Needless to say… Time to make a pros and cons list, do a little research and get organized cause my journey is right around the corner … Any suggestions are more than welcome hahahaha πŸ˜±πŸ€”πŸ™„

Self-Care Is Important

So Do A Little Bit Every Day


Hello World,

We get so busy with every day life and taking care of others that we tend to put ourselves on the back burner and stop taking care of our own needs and then we start getting overwhelmed or resentful of others cause we feel like we are taking care of everything and everyone else yet no one is taking care of or doing anything for us πŸ€”

That’s why self-care is so important cause when we constantly put ourselves on the back burner to appease and do things for everyone else… We really don’t have the right to get resentful or mad cause we made the choice to do so… πŸ™„

Taking care of yourself and putting yourself isn’t selfish or wrong.. Taking care of yourself first makes you happy and makes you strong.. So do something every day that is strictly just for you. Then when you do things for others it will make you happy too 😍

I’m so close to bringing the bus home.. and making my dreams come true .. thank you all for helping and for all you do. The link is below so please help me if you can or share the link so I can keep my promise to my son and myself and continue on my journey to heal myself and honor my beautiful son. Thank you thank you thank you ALL πŸ™πŸ’•πŸ™
