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˜€

Be Kind Whenever Possible

It’s Always Possible


Hello World, 

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right… Choose being kind and you’ll always be right!” ~ Dalai Lama

Growing up my mom always use to say “kill them with kindness” or “you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar!” And of course I had to learn that the hard way as most of us do… 

Yet the older I get the more I see just how true it actually is and not just towards another.. It’s true for my inner peace as well! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

No-one or nothing is worth getting all worked up about.. It disturbs your peace of mind and truly disrupts your whole day… 

So for today instead of reacting negatively back to a yucky situation.. Step back, process it, breathe, smile and kill the situation with kindness.. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel.. 

Cause negativity has no recourse to a positive response! ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’โ˜บ๐Ÿ˜’…

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Never Ever Doubt Yourself

Believe In Your Dreams and Your Goals


Hello World

When we share our dreams and goals with others, many will not believe that it’s possible. Many will tell you that your dreams or goals are too big and that you’ll never reach them.. Some will put doubt and fear in your head as well… yet who’s dreams are they? Theirs or yours?๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

This morning I woke up thinking about all the people that thought I was crazy (after my son passed away) for wanting to get a bus and convert it into a living home on wheels. To travel all over the country sprinkling his ashes at all the beautiful places that we wanted too see and especially to do it alone.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

It made me giggle and actually start laughing hard cause at one point all their doubts and negativity stated to make me doubt that I could do it too… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” yet look at where I am now! 

The bus is almost finished and my journey will soon begin and I can smile at all the doubters cause in my heart I knew I’d win ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

Now when I look back at things I giggle and I laugh… cause I removed the negativity in my life and started to release the pain of my past. I believed with all my heart that I could make this dream come true, and I did exactly that with positivity and YOU.. 

So push all doubt out of your head and push negative people away from you.. They’re your dreams and it’s your life to live how you want too!!”

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

There’s No Such Thing As Perfection

Everyone and Everything Is Unique


Hello World,

Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป…

I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป.

The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒŽ

So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ

Spiritually Letting Go Is Freedom

For Your Mind, Body and Soul


Hello World,

Working in the bus today was very fun yet going through the things I want to take was a tad difficult… 

It amazes me how much “stuff” we accumulate and when you start to go through it, you realize how little we really truly need  and how much we hold on to that we really don’t need at all ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•

It’s not always easy letting go of material things that we’ve collected over the years yet today helped me see that some things I’ve been holding on to forever, I really don’t need at all ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„  A roof, some clothes, food and the basis are really all I need… 

Do I really need my mom’s China that I’ve been holding onto for years or am I just afraid to let them go because they bring memories from so many years? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

It’s not the things that make you happy it’s the memories they give to you .. Yet Things don’t last forever, it’s love and memories that do ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ˜โค

Free yourself from material things cause they eventually go away… It’s all the love within your heart and the memories that always stay ๐Ÿ’•โค๐Ÿ’•

A beautiful soul that saw my gofundme messaged me on my blog and sent me a gift card to purchase the little fridge I needed for the bus WOO HOO ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™M SO VERY GRATEFULโ€ฆ so now Iโ€™m down to only needing help to get the 2000 watt inverter and the 200 watt solar panel kit for me to have electricity inside without using the engine batteries while stopped at night.

There Really Are Earth Angels

They Are Your Real True Friends

Hello World,

Don’t ever take for granted the people that go out of their way to wipe away your tears and do whatever they can to help you get outta your head…. Today one of my friends did that out of the blue… How she knew I was having a very difficult day is beyond me yet there she was ready to wipe my tears and allow me to feel every emotion I was going through and i am beyond grateful. those are the people that are true Earth angels and don’t ever let them go!!! โค๐Ÿ˜‡โค

Most of you know what I’m going through and that this is a very hard month for me… Yet after witnessing a beautiful morning of kindness, it made me miss my son even more… 

Michael was a beautiful Earth Angel and touched more hearts then I ever imagined… The 30th will be two years that he went on a different journey and as you know I’m not one to hide my feelings I’ve learned to embrace them and allow myself to feel… 

Yet as much as I’m trying to embrace the 30th and make it a day full of beautiful memories I’m having a really hard time and I just wanted you all to know I will not let you all go… 

Thank you for always being here, thank you for wiping my tears… Thank you for sharing your hearts with me, thanks for taking away my fears… 

I just needed to say thank you because you all mean the world to me.. thank you for being my Earth Angels and allowing me to simply be me… Much love to you all my friends… For you all I am truly grateful.. 

Much love from all of me to ask of you โค

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™
