Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???πŸ€”

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😡 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..πŸ˜•

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout πŸ™ƒπŸ˜πŸ™ƒ

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—

You Can Plan The Plan

But Not The Outcome


Hello World πŸ€—

This morning I was talking to a friend about how when we make a plan, we tend to try to plan it all the way out to the end… and most of the time because of bumps along the way or because we change our minds…the outcome of the plan we made isn’t the same or turns out totally different then we planned it originally😱 

It made me think about the bus πŸ€”

When I first got the bus I really thought I knew exactly how I wanted the inside to be and since then have changed it a few times..😱 each time I’ve changed it, it’s turned out way better then my original plan, yet I still changed it from the original plan… πŸ™„πŸ€”

So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm πŸ€”

That’s what made me think of this poem… 

I picked the background for the same reason… 

If you look at the road in the picture it looks like the end goes down a hill… Yet does it? 

It could be straight…it could turn… or it could be a dead end! 

We can’t predict how the road goes.. and we don’t know until we get there…πŸ™„

Moral of this story… 

We can plan the plan yet we cannot plan the outcome… 

All we have is the here and now… and all we can do is take the steps that lead us to where we want to go… 

Yet we can’t ever assume or predict that our plan will turn out exactly how we planned it…πŸ˜‰

Live in the moment my friends cause we cannot predict what will be… We only have the here and now cause the future’s not ours to see πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ€—.. 

Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!” 

Goodnight Universe πŸ’—

Like A Seedling Pushing Through The Ground

Patience Is The Key


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

Not sure why, yet this morning I woke up thinking about how when we are growing flowers in a garden, we get excited about every step as we watch it grow… 

We don’t pull it out of the ground cause we get impatient cause it’s not growing fast enough… 

We savoir the process step by step and nurture it every day… 

Yet when it comes to our dreams and goals… If doesn’t happen fast enough we quit or walk awayπŸ€”πŸ™„..

We cannot expect our dreams to happen overnight, 

It’s a process… 

Just like growing anything is, yet we tend to get frustrated and impatient cause we want them to happen NOW!!! πŸ€”πŸ˜–πŸ™„..

Nothing in life happens that fast and our dreams take time to flourish just like a flower or tree… 

So enjoy each moment step by step and remember patience is the key!!!

Time Never ChangesΒ 

The Hours Remain The Same


Hello World,  

The last few days I caught myself stressing about the 4th being right around the corner and looking at the things I still need to do to make the bus ready and boy oh boy I’ve been a mess 😡😱😡.

So yesterday I meditated and prayed a lot because it was making anxious and sad that I might not be ready in 10 days… And this morning I woke up to an email from the organization in the Keys that said because they don’t have all the supplies needed down there yet that it wouldn’t be until AFTER the 15th before they will ask the volunteers to start going down there to help rebuild…

Although I did want to leave on Michael’s birthday I know that the “date” doesn’t matter cause it’s the journey itself that does… 😁😍😁

Moral of the story: Don’t let hurry worry get stuck in your mind cause the hours of the day don’t change so don’t stress out about the time. We don’t have to always get things done in one day.. So take your time, pace yourself and don’t let stress get in your wayπŸ˜πŸ˜‰

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—πŸŒ»

Don’t Stress About The End Result

Just Take It Step By Step


Hello World

Challenges whether new or old can really stress you out… Yet stressing out does nothing but bringing up more doubt πŸ€”πŸ™„.

So don’t worry about the end result just do the steps one by one and know that everything will work out and you will get it done! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜€πŸ˜ƒ

Yesterday figuring out the fresh water tank was easy as can be but figuring out where to drain the water was getting the the best of me… So I decided to take a break to look at it a different way and just when I stopped worrying about it I woke up with the answer today… πŸ˜‰πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰.

I sometimes get so wrapped up inside my head that I sometimes cannot see.. The answer that I was looking for was right in front of me. πŸ˜ŒπŸ™„πŸ˜’πŸ˜

Moral of this story… Sometimes we look so far ahead that we wind up wasting time so take a break and a couple steps back and things will fall in line! 

Have a beautiful day world 🌻β™₯

Rushing Doesn’t Get Things DoneΒ 

So Take Your Time And Get It Right


Hello World,

Lately I’ve been trying to get things done in the bus early before it gets too hot and this morning I was trying to rush and spilled a huge bucket of water everywhere… πŸ˜±πŸ€”πŸ˜±

That may not sound like a big deal yet it made me have to stop what I was doing to get all the water up of the floor of the bus which by the time I got done it was too hot to do anything else…πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

That’s what put this poem in my head…We rush to try to get things done and then we wind up having to do it again cause we rushed through it..It’s better late than never is what they always say, so take your time and do it right so it doesn’t affect your dayπŸ€— 

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. β€πŸ™β€

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. 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  πŸ™πŸ’•πŸ™
