Always Smile and Say Hello

To Those You Do And Do Not Know

Hello World ๐ŸŒป Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

Ok so the coolest thing happened to me today…

I was making my coffee as usual and something told me to look out my window…๐Ÿค” The window panels on the driver’s side stay up cause the site next to mine is for overnighters and it keeps the bus cooler during the day.. but something told me to look so I did! ๐Ÿ˜

And to my surprise there was a school bus parked a few sites away that I recognized ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.

It was really early so I went outside to peek at the front to see if it had a name on it and yeppers.. it was “Alice The Wonder Bus” @alicethewonderbus a couple that I follow on IG ๐Ÿ˜

Talk about a big big smile…

So of course it being early I didn’t want to wake them up so I waited for a couple hours and went to knock on the door…

It was actually funny cause I guess they came in the middle of the night and thought I was the park manager looking for payment lol and we all laughed when I said “nope I follow you on IG”

We had a wonderful talk and tossed different ideas around about our buses.. they truly made my day and I got even more excited for my upcoming journey ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—..

My point in all this is:

Many people will come through your life and some will also go..don’t be afraid to say hi to someone that you don’t know.. cause you never know who you may meet at home or when you’re away.. a little smile and a warm hello can brighten up everyone’s day! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

A Great Big Smile

Can Brighten Your Day

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—
This morning I woke up smiling really big.. not sure if it was from a dream I had or just because…

Yet whatever the reason it reminded me that we all need to wake up smiling…

There truly is nothing that can “make” you start your day in a shitty mood cause how you start your day is totally in your control…

It doesn’t matter if the kids are screaming, you’re running late, the weather sucks or your stuck in a massive traffic jam.. nothing controls your day but YOU …

No matter what!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‰..

So my friends…

Don’t forget to start your day with a great big smile… Screaming kids and traffic jams only last a little while…

Don’t forget to pause and breathe if things don’t go your way… Remember that YOU’RE in control…

Now Go Have A Beautiful Day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–

Always Remember The Little Things

They Are What Matters Most

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

Ok so yesterday I received a couple things I ordered on Amazon for the bus and talk about funny….

When I went up to the office to pick them up.. I was dancing around like a little kid and the manager asked me what I got that was making me so happy and silly dancing around like a little kid ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿค—

At first I wasn’t going to show her and then decided why not and opened the big box in front of her…

Well I guess it was a good thing cause she started laughing so hard that she was literally crying which of course made me laugh really hard and then another lady came in… She asked why we were laughing so hard.. We told her and of course she lost it too..

I looked at both of them after we calmed down a bit and said….

“You know you’re a tad touched when you receive a order you placed, you’re dancing around like a kid in a candy store and it’s a toilet!”๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ’ƒsee pics โฌ‡๏ธ

Of course I was happy to receive my USA sticker for the back of the bus too but the toilet is a game changer ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Now for most people that’s not anything major ๐Ÿค” but for me OMG… It’s HUGE…

Imagine boondocking in the middle of nowhere with no bathroom..๐Ÿ˜ซ

Or…

Being that I am much older than most van lifers lol… Those middle of the night potty breaks…๐Ÿ™„

It would not be too fun going outside behind a bush in the middle of nowhere, in the dark at 3am ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚ my luck I’d forget toilet paper and grab a poisen ivy leaf ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐Ÿ˜‚

So my friends…

Don’t forget the little things that always make you smile… Cause it’s always the little things that make life worthwhile ๐Ÿšฝ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿšฝ..

Have a wonderful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Spread A Little Kindness

To All You Do and Do Not Know

Hello World,

What a beautiful act of kindness I got to witness today…. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜

As I was checking out of my least favorite store ever (the one that begins with WAL lol lol) There were 2 people in front of me and the one checking out was I would say in her late 70’s to mid 80’s… 

Now I’ve read about these things happening yet never saw until the other day and I LOST IT…. She had the basic staples like bread, milk, eggs etc and when she saw the total she was over by about $15 and as she was trying to decide what to put back I stepped up and asked how much she needed and before the cashier could answer the woman in front of me said… How much is her total amount.. the cashier told her and not only did the lady pay for it.. she immediately bought her a $100 Walmart gift card and gave that to her too…. 

Yep she lost it, I lost it, the cashier lost it and all the nice lady said was “kindness isn’t something we should TRY to do its something we should all do every single day…” She said “it’s not about money, it’s not about things, it’s just about caring for others and that’s what makes us human beings….”

I told her I was going to use that in my post and I would have taken a picture yet the elderly lady said she didn’t want one taken cause she wasn’t up to par… We all laughed, smiled and hugged and that was then end of that.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€

Moral of this story… “It’s not about money, it’s not about things… Being kind to everyone is about being a “real” human being!!!”

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป
