Get You Where You Need To Be
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗💖
When I first got the bus I was all determined to get it totally converted in a month or two max… Haha haha well we know that didn’t happen cause 7 months later and I’m still doing things to it 🤔🙄
Not that it’s a bad thing at all cause I’m actually glad that I’m taking my time so that hopefully there won’t be too many changes needed once I hit the road… 😉
I’ve been making jewelry and working with polymer clay for a long time and I’m one that needs to know where everything is and very organized when it comes to all my crafty”stuff” and storing tools and supplies in see-through stackable shoe boxes always helped in that manner… 😉😀😉
Well knowing that I wanted to bring that “stuff” with me in the bus so I have things to do on my down days.. I was going bonkers trying to figure out how to stack them in a place that was easily accessible so I didn’t hurt my back trying to get to them and in a way that they wouldn’t fall all over the place while I drive 🤔🤔🤔
I tried so many things and was getting so frustrated and truly felt defeated..so I put it on the back burner for a while and this weekend it was like a light blub went off in my head…
I have all this room under my bed since I moved the fridge and two ways to access stuff under there…
So I built a bookshelf and woo hoo perfect solution lol… See pics ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
My point in all this is that we get so wrapped up in the big picture and looking at the end result that we can lose our motivation and feel defeated… Sometimes all we need to do is step back, take a break and the answers will come… 😉😀😉..
Go figure huh…
Have a great night world 💖
Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 💗
The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE 💗🤗💗..
Except for a few touch-ups here and there, getting all the tape off and giving her a light wax… she’s now all pretty and shiny.. (See pics⬇⬇⬇)
When I first brought her home I was so on a mission to get everything done asap and truly thought I would be on the road in a couple months..
HAHAHAHA NOT 😏🙄
I was so busy focusing on the end result instead of focusing on each step one at a time that I always wound up backtracking 😩
Between the universe making me slow down or doing to much that I had know choice but to slow down and then of course changing my mind a few times, I felt like it was a never ending battle..😩
When I finally did slow down and decided to take one thing at a time, everything started falling into place and I can now honestly look back and smile because I took my time, changed my mindset and focused on one part at a time and the rewards are on point…
I’m so happy with how she looks inside and out and now all that’s left is getting the new tires put on and hooking up the solar 🤗😁 …
We get so caught up in the “I want it now!” mindset that we do tend to miss the steps in between and for every step forward we wind up taking a step or two back..
So my friends take your time when pursuing your dreams…
Dreams don’t have an expiration date and it’s so much better to slow down and take your time then to wind up backtracking cause you moved so fast that you missed a bunch of steps along the way…
As they say…
It’s not really about the end result is about the journey along the way 🤗💗
So happy with the results 🤗🤗🤗
Have a beautifully slow Sunday 💗
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???🤔
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..😕
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 🙃😏🙃
Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends 🤗💗🤗
Hello World 🤗
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 🤔
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… 🙄🤔
So why do we plan things all the way to the end only for it to change down the line for whatever reason?? Hmmmmm 🤔
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…🙄
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…😉
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 🤗💗🤗..
Just like the song “Que Sara Sara…. Whatever will be will be… The futures not ours to see…Que Sara Sara!”
Goodnight Universe 💗
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗
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 away🤔🙄..
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!!! 🤔😖🙄..
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!!!
The Hours Remain The Same
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 way😁😉
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗🌻
Just Take It Step By Step
Challenges whether new or old can really stress you out… Yet stressing out does nothing but bringing up more doubt 🤔🙄.
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! 😃😀😃😀😃
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… 😉🙃😉.
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. 😌🙄😒😏
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 🌻♥
