Planning Can Be Stressful

And Overwhelming Too

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

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..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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… ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜  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??? ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

Scared vs Fear

There Really Is A Difference

Hello World, 

This morning I was reading a comment my friend Cobs (@thecobweboriumemporium) made about my post yesterday and it really hit home because she reminded me that there is a difference between being scared and fear… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yesterday in my post I said that it was a tad scary knowing that my journey and a new chapter in my life was about to begin and it is true… 

It’s something new and something I’ve never done yet there is no fear at all because I know I can always go home and my reasoning for getting the bus was also because if I pull into somewhere that just doesn’t feel right I could just get in the drivers seat and drive off without having to go outside๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I get so many people that ask me if I’m afraid and or don’t get how a female could travel around the country in a bus ALONE without being in total fear.. Yet Being that I listen to my gut and or follow my instincts I’m actually very excited and not fearful at all. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—

Fear is a noun and can also be used as a verb. Scared is an adjective. Fear is an emotion. Scared is the state of experiencing fear like being spooked at a haunted house ๐Ÿ˜จ Fear is usually long term and much harder to push past than the temporary feeling of getting or being scared.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As my friend Cobs said… Being scared is your bodies way of telling you to be aware and to take a look around and make sure no dangers there… 

So when you’re starting something new and you feel you can’t go on… Push past that scary feeling and keep on moving on โ˜บ๐Ÿค—

Have a beYOUtiful day world and thank you Cobs for the inspiration my post today.. Love you huge my friend ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

When You Face Fear In Eye

You Can Then Make It Disappear


Hello World,

I was talking with a friend tonight about getting stuck and being afraid of stepping out of her comfort zone and how she’s allowed fear to control so much of her life and that she wished she could see the fear like it was a person or had a name and it made a lot of sense to me why sometimes it’s hard to face something you can’t see and this popped up in my head…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

When fear stops you from doing something it’s really just in your head… Yet if we give that fear a name is easier not to dread… We can’t fight a faceless enemy, so give a name to the fear… cause then you can look it in the eye and you can make it disappear โค๐Ÿ˜โค

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 1000 watt or higher inverter, a 100 or 200 watt solar panel kit, an electric cooler or mini fridge to help me complete the bus, It will be greatly appreciated. โค๐Ÿ™โค

My gofundme link is still active for anyone that would like to helpโ€ฆ 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. The active link is below. Please help if you are able or share the link so I can continue converting the bus and move forward with my journey to heal and honor my son  ๐Ÿ™โค๐Ÿ™
