Make A To-BE-List

Take Charge Of How You Feel

Hello World,

This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too πŸ€”.

We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come πŸ™„πŸ™„….

So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜.

……………..

Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. πŸ€—β€πŸ€— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful β€πŸ™β€… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ€—

We Aren’t Invisible

We’re Here To See Each Other Through


Good evening my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

With all the devastation between Hurricane Harvey, Irma and the possibility of Jose… It made me think about how important it is for us all to be here for each other πŸ€”πŸ™πŸ€”.

Some things we can’t control like Mother Nature… Some things we can like offering a helping hand… It’s not something we have to do yet it’s definitely something we all should do… πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—πŸ™πŸ€—.

Kindness doesn’t cost a thing and it can truly change someone life… We aren’t invisible yet so many turn their heads when they see someone less fortunate or not “like”they are… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”. 

We aren’t here to be better than or to see through each other… We are here to see each other through.. cause when it comes down to it that’s what we’re here to do… We ARE one!!! 

Goodnight night universe, Goodnight my friends πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Life Is Filled With Lessons

When We Look At Things That Way


Hello World,

Yesterday I couldn’t get my thoughts to settle down.. it was a very emotional day and I couldn’t stop and think… Of why my head would not shut up and let me swim not sink… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”

We all go though days like that and there’s really no reason why…  yesterday was a day like that for me so I just processed it and cried…  today I’m feeling better and I woke up with a smile πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»  I’m back to working on the bus at least for a little while πŸ˜€πŸ€—…

Not every day will be a sad one, not every day will be good… Just process what you’re going through and go through the day as you should… Cause life is filled with lessons when we look at them that way… And when we fully realize that we’ll have a much better day… πŸ€—πŸŒ»πŸ˜€ 

I’m back to working on the bus so I can begin my journey and keep my promise to my son spreading his ashes where I promised him I would and live our dream ❀ The total I need to get everything in order for me to have electricity to run the fridge and other things while I’m stopped at night without using the engine battery is down to $554 and I am so grateful.πŸ˜€β€πŸ€—

I am still needing a 2000 watt inverter and two 12volt marine batteries as well as a 200 watt solar panel kit which would keep the inverter batteries charged at all times πŸ€— My gofundme link is still active and is below for anyone that can help or if anyone knows where I can get those things cheaper please let me know. πŸ€—πŸ™

My goal date to embark on my journey is my son’s birthday October 4th and I’m so close, it’s right around the corner and I’m so excited to begin β€πŸ€—β€

Believe You Can

And You Will


Hello World

Yesterday was the first day I didn’t post at all in 6 months and although I felt off at different times and moments throughout the day for not posting, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to do so😒😒😒😒😒😒😒😒

My best friend, my soulmate friend, my rock and sister that I’ve known for 40 yrs mother passed away and I didn’t know how to process it with all that I’ve been going through myself πŸ€”πŸ™„ 

So I decided to take a sabbatical, a day to just process my feelings, a day to allow myself to feel the loss of her mom, to cry and scream too..a day to just be me and allow it πŸ™„πŸ€”

It’s truly amazing what we can endure no matter what life throws at us and as long as we believe in ourselves there is nothing that can’t get through..

Never ever stop believing in the strength you have within, never ever stop knowing that you CAN endure and get through ANYTHING that life throws at you… You only have to believe

Honoring A Life Well Lived

And A Legacy Left Behind

Hello World,

Am I ok today NO I’M NOT… Will I be okay… YES I WILL…. yet today I’m dedicating my words to my son… “To honor a life well lived and a legacy left behind!”

As he always said: “There is no end, we just go on a different journey!!” Michael R. Jones

I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, forever and always my baby you’ll be…I will always always love you Michael today, tomorrow and forever !!  I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU SO VERY VERY MUCH… Until We Meet Again… REST IN PARADISE MY LOVE β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€πŸ™β€

Take A Deep Breath Or Two

It Really Helps Calm You Down too

I love the smell of lavender it’s such a soothing scent… Yet taking deep breaths are soothing too especially when your emotions are spent…😒❀😒

We all know this is a hard weekend for me yet with all of your love and support it gets easier a little each day… So I just wanted to say thank you my friends and send a reminder your way…😘🌻

We all go through different emotions, some happy and some very sad… Take a deep breath or two… And when you find yourself out of sync… Deep breathes will calm you down too…🌻❀🌻😘🌻❀

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 2000 watt or higher inverter, a 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. 😘❀😘

My gofundme link is still active for anyone that would like to help… 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.
