Don’t Let A Bad 5 Minutes

Ruin Your Whole Day

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—

It truly baffles me when something shitty happens, no matter if it’s huge or if it’s tiny, we tend to hold on to it for so long that it ruins our day or days for that matter 🀨🀨🀨

This weekend I allowed a shitty situation to take over my whole weekend 🀬 why?? I don’t know…

It’s not like I could control it…

It’s not like it was done TO me intentionally and even if it was there’s absolutely nothing I could do about it yet I let it control me, make me angry, make me get all stressed out, then depressed blah blah blah…

When in all reality because there was nothing I could do I should’ve just processed it and let it go 🀨🀨.

Now I’m not saying that I should’ve stuffed my feelings about it..

Never do that..

Yet once I processed it and figured out what I needed to do, if anything, I should’ve just let it go and moved on…

But nooooooooo I allowed it to swell up in my head and ruin my weekend 😩

It wasn’t until last night when a couple of amazing women I’m in a group with asked me about my old GoFundMe account and it dawned on me that sweating it was truly a waste of time all I needed to do was ask for help 😞

It’s always been really hard for me to ask for help and it still is… Even though I know that my NOT asking for help denies others the same pleasure and good feeling I get when I help someone..

Go figure huh 😩 😩

My point in all this is… Don’t allow a bad 5 minutes to ruin your day or get you stuck on stupid… it’s so much easier to move on when you don’t sweat the small stuff..

And remember…

There’s nothing wrong with asking for help when you really need to.. You know how good it feels when you help someone… So don’t deny the good feeling it gives to others when they want help you!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–…

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

Baby Steps Can Motivate

Get You Where You Need To Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’–

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 πŸ€”πŸ™„

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… πŸ˜‰

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… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰

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 πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

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…

Duh Ricci…

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… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜€πŸ˜‰..

Go figure huh…

Have a great night world πŸ’–

Don’t Stress On The End Result

Enjoy The Whole Journey Step By Step

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—

The last few days I’ve been totally focusing on finishing painting the bus and WOO HOO IT’S DONE πŸ’—πŸ€—πŸ’—..

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 πŸ˜πŸ™„

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 πŸ€—πŸ˜ …

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 πŸ€—πŸ’—

So happy with the results πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Have a beautifully slow Sunday 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’—

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™₯

Don’t Punt The Fun

Until The Work Is Done


Hello World,

We always tend to hold back the fun or getting a reward for doing things until they are completed or achieved…πŸ€”πŸ€”

That’s makes all the steps to achieve our goals really boring and we lose our motivation and that makes us want to quit. When instead we should be having fun so we don’t get tired of it. 😁😁😁😁😁

Don’t ever punt the fun until the end of your goals… Have a blast while doing each step and let the good times roll πŸ’ƒπŸ˜

As you all know I’ve got the bus home and now the real work starts… To convert the bus to live in isn’t going to be easy yet I’m excited to begin… There a few costly items I’m going to need to complete it so if anyone knows where I can get a 1000 watt inverter and a 100-200 watt solar panel kit to help me complete the bus, I would be overly grateful… I will be leaving my gofundme link active for anyone that would like to help… Or if anyone has one they would be willing to donate please send me a direct message. The active link is below and I’m so so excited to begin converting the bus. Thank you all for all your help it’s time to let the good times roll 😁

Don’t Focus On The End Result

Focus On A Little Each Day

Hello World,

Even small life changes can be hard to do… Yet when you focus on the end result that makes it harder too… πŸ€”

Don’t focus on the end result cause that can lead you astray…. Focus on each area a little bit every day…😊

Changes can be scary, yes we know that’s true… Yet changes are a part of life and help you become a better you… πŸ˜€

~~~~~~~~

You all know my story and I cannot do this alone. I’m still $628 away from getting the bus so I can begin making it livable and I need help paying the mechanic to make it road ready and safe for me to drive. 

I’ve tried to change the amount I need on my gofundme campaign yet it won’t allow me too and I’d have to start a brand new campaign which is crazy yet I only need $628 more to pay the mechanic. The active link is below and I’m so very close… Please help if you are able or share the link if you can… I’m ready to begin my journey to heal and with your help I CAN!!!
