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’–

Don’t Let Frustration Get To You

Don’t Ever Give Up

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป

A couple days ago I be posted about following your gut and about my getting new batteries for the bus and it not starting after I installed them ๐Ÿคฌ

I talked about my thinking it was the starter and not the batteries and so yesterday I took out the starter and took it to the parts store to get a new one ๐Ÿค”
The guy at the store was really nice and wanted to test the starter before I had to put out $180 for a new one and AHHHHHHH it tested perfectly fine 4 TIMES ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฌ

SOOOOOOOOO he tried to troubleshoot the issue with me and as we were brainstorming a light bulb went off in my head and I remembered that the original owner told me I may have to get a new starter solenoid… ๐Ÿค”

So I decided to buy one instead of the starter which was only $22 ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜.. But by the time I got home it was dark and to late to do anything ๐Ÿ˜ซ

Sooooooooo first thing this morning I reinstalled the starter and started following all the wires to the solenoid๐Ÿค” my neighbor came over and he helped me test the solenoid and yep yep there was no juice going to it at all…

I replaced the solenoid and BAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ IT STARTED RIGHT UP ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜

Yes I did a happy dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿ’ƒ…

My point in all this is:

Your dreams don’t happen easily, you have to work for it… Just keep going no matter what & DON’T YOU EVER QUIT!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ƒ

Now onto the solar ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Gratitude Is Everything

For You & For Everyone Else Too

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’–

For the past few days I was really upset because of my having to pay rent for an additional site for my bus cause I thought it was going to set me back on my departure date is my bus๐Ÿ˜ซ

I allowed myself to get in a funk because I thought I’d have to push back my departure date of June 10th again and I basically got stuck on stupid and let myself get all yucky ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿค”

Until Friday…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

I woke up Friday morning and all I could hear inside my head was..

“Practice what you preach Ricci… It’s Time!” ๐Ÿค”..

At first I was perplexed as to the full meaning of what I was hearing so I sat in my bed, meditated for a little while and wrote down everything I am truly grateful for including where I am today!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

I let it go, gave it to the universe and got busy doing the little tedious things on the bus that I kept putting off…๐Ÿ˜ฏ

And sure enough… I’m back on track lol lol lol…

Yesterday I picked up the two solar batteries, a new starting and auxillary battery for the engine and I’m back on track to leave June 10th ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’– All it too was for me to change my mindset and get busy ๐Ÿค”

Basically get out of my own head ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Gratitude is so powerful and when we stop to be grateful for where we are and work hard for where we want to be…Things will happen right before your eyes cause that’s exactly what’s happened to me…

All you have to do is be grateful and believe๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–.. and don’t sweat the small shit lol

Have a beautiful day my friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒป

Intentions Are Your Internal Map

Set Them Like A Goal

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Part of my daily morning routine always includes reading something motivational to start my day.. whether it be a shine text or some of my own writings..

It’s something I do daily…

This morning I chose to read my daily shine text and it reminded me of something I use to do every morning for years and why I stopped is beyond me cause it really did work..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Every morning while I was drinking my coffee I would write in a book I made (and at one time sold lol) that said…

“This Morning I Feel…” And I’d write the answer…

I rarely expanded on the answer in big detail because it was just about how I felt at that moment before I started my day…

Then that night before bed I would reverse it sorta and would write…

“Today My Day Went…”And answer that.

It was a really good way to identify how I was feeling that day, how I reacted to things throughout my day and then be able to process it.

It showed me that I really do control how I feel throughout my day and helped me see my actions and reactions to just about everything ๐Ÿ˜‰..

I think it’s time to start doing it again haha ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜Š

My point in all this is that we really are in complete control of how we feel…

We are in complete control of how we act and how we react to whatever comes our way..

When we set an intention to be positive all day, it can be like a map, like a goal..

So set a daily intention on how you’d like to feel each day… Make it simple, make it real and intend to have a beautiful day!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜‰.. Click on the video lol

Happy Day World ๐Ÿ’–

Life Really Is Amazing

When You Stop & Take The Time To See

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Last night or actually sometime early this morning I woke up crying from a sound sleep with this poem in my head… It wasn’t a sad cry or a scared cry, it was just a slight teary cry ๐Ÿค”

It was still dark outside and I couldn’t get this poem out of my head, so I grabbed my notepad, wrote it down and fell back asleep ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

It wasn’t until after I made my coffee, sat down and went to read my morning motivation text that I remembered that I had written this poem down..

So I grabbed my notepad and read it ๐Ÿค”

I felt so calm reading this and I tried to remember if I had a dream but couldn’t remember if I did or not.. yet all I could think about was my son Michael and yet this time I didn’t cry ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’–

I’m not one that ever remembers my dreams yet I’m also one that never wakes up with a poem in my head and then takes the time to write it down half asleep yet this time I did and the more I think about it, the more I believe that it was my Michael, a sign of some sort reminding me to stop and remember the beauty and love we shared..

(yeah I’m crying now) ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜ข..

I guess my point in all this is…

Life really is amazing when you stop and take the time to see…

That love is everywhere around us cause it comes from inside of you and me ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–…

It’s Ok To Change Your Mind

Whenever You Want Too!

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Ok so we all know that I’m a sticker freak lol and that I’ve decided to dedicate the back of the bus with pretty and positive vibe stickers ๐Ÿค— well that hasn’t changed yet I just added “Hello World” & “Goodnight Universe” to the front and the back (website will be added later) but the back just wasn’t sitting right with me yet I couldn’t figure out why ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”..

Well… Yesterday I was talking to my dear dear friend Paul who lives in Scotland and I showed him the front and the back of the bus and being the bff that he is.. He called me out on the back saying it looked a little out of place (his exact words I can’t say hahaha) because I had “Goodnight Universe” at the top and right below it I had a map of the USA ๐Ÿ˜ฏ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

And it hit me…

How one-sided of me to have “Goodnight Universe” and only the USA map beneath it…๐Ÿ˜ซ

So yep I immediately took the USA map down painted it again and put the WORLD map beneath it… ๐Ÿ˜

Duh Ricci hahahaha I’m loving it now and it looks way way better….(see picsโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธโฌ‡๏ธ)

I’m still gonna put the USA map on it so I can see all the states I’m going to but it’s going on the passenger side next to the bus doors instead lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

Needless to say my oldest and his fiancee as well as my bestie agreed yet also laughed cause I’m constantly changing stuff… ๐Ÿค—

My point in this is: there’s nothing wrong with changing your mind a million times if you need too… Nothing in life is set in stone so do what’s best for you!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’–

Have A Beautiful Day World ๐Ÿ’–
