Positive Words Can Make You

Negative Words Can Break You

Hello World๐ŸŒปHappy Day My Friends๐Ÿ˜

Well today is brakes day on the bus ๐Ÿ˜and when my mechanic called me this morning it was like a realization slap in the face that embarking on my new life journey is truly right around the corner ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

16 days and counting and omg I’ll be hitting the road ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฎ

So many emotions happening right now and yet his call made me realize I’m down to one thing after the brakes and it also made me think of before I got the bus and how so many times I thought and said it wouldn’t happen and that’s when this poem popped into my head…

I thought about how often we actually stop things from happening in our lives just because WE think we CAN’T and that’s so not true… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ซ

My favorite actress Audrey Hepburn once said:

“Nothing is impossible, for even the word itself says “I’M POSSIBLE!”

and that’s so very true… When we fill our minds with “I can’t”, then we won’t…

And when we fill our heads with “YES I CAN”… We do…

It’s really that simple!

So always say positive words and believe in those words too… Cause when we say things like “YES I CAN” all our dreams come true! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

16 DAYS AND COUNTING ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Always BELIEVE ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

Live Life Optimistically

Allow Life To Simply BE!


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Have you ever had one of those friends that always look at what could happen, or lives on what ifs constantly.. Expecting that this or that could happen.. Planning for the oh shits??๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.. (key word expecting!!) 

Hmmmmmm??? ๐Ÿค”

I’ve always been optimistic and have always looked at all the good things that I’m going to experience rather than looking for what “could” happen or the “what ifs”… 

It’s not that I think life is a bowl of cherries ๐Ÿ’, I just don’t look at the woulda, could, shoulda senarios and if and when something does happen I deal with it as it comes…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„ 

The journey and life change that I’m getting ready to embark on is huge and I’m fully aware that shit can happen yet I’m not planning for it…๐Ÿค”

Living a van life will definitely have it’s ups and downs and Yes I “could” get a flat, Yes the bus “could” break down and Yes I “could” come across a full campground and or be asked to move from somewhere I chose to camp at… 

Yet I definitely don’t plan for those things to happen and I definitely don’t allow those “could happen” and “what ifs” to take up space in my head.. 

If I did I’d never leave my driveway!!! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

I choose to live an optimistic life and make plans for everything good.. And when a yucky situation occurs I’ll deal with it as I should… 

Living a pessimistic life is not a life for me… I choose to look for the good in life and allow life to simply BE!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

Flexible Optimismย 

Can Change Your Point Of View


Hello World 

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them!” ~Albert Einstein 

Yesterday as I was trying to figure out how to secure something in the bus that just wasn’t working right, I stopped to reassess the whole design yet my mind kept telling me it would work and it wouldn’t ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„…

So I decided to move on to something else and this morning the quote from Albert Einstein popped into my head and that’s what made me write this poem… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

The mind can be very tricky and rather than looking at something from a different point of view, we tend to keep trying and wind up getting frustrated and or pessimistic and give up on the idea..๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ˜ค. If we use flexible optimism and look at it in a different way, we can usually figure out a different way of doing it… It’s all about changing our mindset ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”…

Moral of this story: When you start to feel pessimistic you can change that mindset too… Use flexible optimism to change your point of view ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„….

Have a beautifully optimistic day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Too Positive To Be Doubtful

To Determined To Be Defeated


Hello World,

Always know that something wonderful can happen any moment of every day as long as you keep a positive mindset. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Even saying something as simple as “I can’t wait to see you!” has a negative connotation.

Try to see how many times a day you say words like can’t or but cause when you do you take away what you really meant to say.

Stay positive my friends and have a beautiful day
