Setbacks Don’t Define You

It’s How You Handle Them That Does

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why does it always seem like when everything is going good, you feel like it’s smooth sailing and you’re so close to finishing something, BAM๐Ÿ’ฅ you get slapped hard with something that sets you back big-time๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก

The past couple days, in between the rain, I finished putting the flowers and butterfly stickers up the sides of the bus, I replaced ALL the running lights bulbs and covers, I added elastic to the shelving so things don’t fly off the shelves (see picsโฌ‡๏ธ),I secured the fridge and got everything I need to install the ladder on the back plus more and then..

BAM๐Ÿ’ฅ

I find out today that I have to move the bus to it’s own site because the rules state there cannot be 2 RV’s in one site ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคจ

Now technically we all know that the bus is NOT a fully self-contained RV yet because I do sleep in it and cook in it etc.. The manager and owner of the park are being…(best not say what I’d like too) and I have no choice but to move to another site or move the bus over to storage which I can’t do because there’s no electricity in storage and I need electricity to finishing working on it๐Ÿ˜”..

So $635 total for me to move to another site starting Tuesday to June 9th..Which not only pushes my departure date back over 2 weeks, It also means I literally cannot spend a dime between now and then and it totally depletes my emergency road savings ๐Ÿ˜ญ so I’ve got to make sure everything is totally on point now..๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Does this upset me and throw a wrench in my plans..

Yep big-time..

Yet I cannot and will not allow it to beat me down..๐Ÿคจ..

My point in all this is that setbacks happen, they’re a part of life…

Even if no fault of your own, you have two choices..

You can either let it break you or you can stay strong and keep moving forward…

for me I only have one coffee and that is to keep going no matter what ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜‰.

So my friends no matter what life throws at you… Don’t give up… Life really sucks when you love with regrets so keep moving forward no matter what!!! You’ll get to where you’re going eventually and as I always say… Even baby steps get you to your goals and dreams ๐Ÿ˜˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Accepting Change

Is Empowering


Hello World, 

A friend of mine that is embarking on a new life journey was having a difficult time and we discussed how scary it is and at the same time how empowering it is once you actually do it… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค”..

She called me this morning to thank me for giving her the strength to do it and when I told her that I didn’t give her the strength or actually push her that she had it all along, she reminded me that sometimes when one doesn’t feel they can do something and someone helps them see that they can… 

That too is empowering for both.. and she’s right…๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜Š..

When we guide or help someone feel empowered, we empower ourselves too.. and even if we haven’t actually done it yet, seeing another do it that you’ve helped, gives us the strength to do it too! 

Change can be intimating and very scary too… Yet once you actually do it you become a strong and confident you!!!

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—

Don’t Ever Downsize Your Abilities

You’re Stronger Then You Think You Are

Hello World,

Wherever we get stressed or worried we forget how strong we are. We forget all of our abilities, we forget what we’ve faced before and we forget what we’ve gone through.

Stress and worry get us nowhere, they only make us doubt what we can do… Don’t ever downsize your abilities and remember what you’ve already pushed through.

Bus Update— To get the bus mechanically sound so I don’t get stuck on the road, it’s going to cost $628, then insurance and registration is another $225 … Sooooo here I am again asking for your help…

You all know my story and I cannot do this all by myself… I really would like to be on the road by July cause otherwise I’ll be traveling in the snow and the places my son wanted his ashes spread are closed from mid October through May…  So there’s my dilemma and I’m asking for help to get this done. The active link is below and with your help I can get on the road, safe and before it gets cold.
