Gratitude Teaches Patience

So be grateful for all you do!

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends πŸ’–πŸŒ»πŸ’–

Patience has never been my strong suit and this past 2 months of trying to get the bus finished so I can hit the road has really really tried my patience 😫😫

Many people I know have given me kudos for sticking to my guns through all the issues and setbacks I’ve had with the bus and I truly appreciate it..

Yet quitting has never ever been an option or a thought I’ve had πŸ€” yet being patient has sometimes gotten the best of me… Making me cry, making me wonder if this journey is meant to be and even putting doubt in my head… πŸ€”

Yet every time something has happened I step back and think about how grateful I am too have the opportunity to be able to convert a bus and travel and I wake up stronger and even more determined to get this done..

Yet last night was different..

I went to bed frustrated and this morning I woke up impatient and pissed that the bus is in the shop and I’m not on the road yetπŸ€”πŸ˜«

Then I realized that rather than being grateful for the bus being where it needs to be I was acting like an ungrateful kid instead and that wasn’t helping at all…

So I sat my ungrateful ass down and made a list of everything I’ve done so far and omg it was like the universe slapped me upside my head and said

“Are you grateful now?!?”

My point I’m all this is:

Instead of being grateful for things we’re WAITING for.. we tend to get impatient and our gratitude goes out the door…

So learn to be truly grateful for EVERYTHING that you do.. cause you will learn that gratitude will help you appreciate waiting too!! πŸ™πŸ’–πŸ™..

Have a beautiful day world πŸ’–

Every Moment Of Every Day

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

Wow I just hit 2k followers on Instagram and I truly am shocked…

When I started posting my poems on IG and my blog, I did it because it was a place for me to put them and save them because I had tons of scribble papers everywhere and I wanted to organize them and expand on my feelings about what I wrote.

It truly never was about gaining followers and honestly it still isn’t.

At first my page was private cause it was more of a journal for me than anything and within a few days, I started getting follower requests which surprised me actually lol…

Then I met Dana and in a private message she asked me where my poems and thoughts came from and I told her my story.

She suggested that I share my story and so I made my account public and did…

The response I got and the amount of people that started following me was honestly a little overwhelming yet I figured that if my story could help just one person that it would be worth publicizing it..

I love helping others, always have and always will yet never thought my poems and thoughts would receive the response that they have, and during this time, I found that there were quite a lot of people out there that were going through the devestating loss of a child too…

I was not alone!!!

Needless to say, I see people all the time thanking everyone when they reach a certain milestone of followers and decided that even though for me my page isn’t about gaining a million followers, I needed to take the time to show my appreciation for all of the followers I do have cause if it wasn’t for many of you I wouldn’t be where I am today and it’s because of the love and support from my IG family and my blog family, that day by day the pain that I bear gets lighter to carry and for that I am being grateful…

For ALL of you I am truly grateful!

So thank you so very much for all your love and constant support! For listening to my ups and my downs and for shining your light whenever mine goes dim.. I truly love you all with all of my being and just thought I should let you all know it…

Much love, hugs and smiles to you all..I AM GRATEFUL πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

Family Is Everything

And Family Isn’t Just Blood

This morning I dedicated my post to my kids and wanted to remind everyone not to forget to tell your family you love them and to show them that we care…

Yet for me family isn’t just blood…

For me family is all the people in your life that support all you do.. that believe in your dreams and help you believe in them too….

The ones that wipe your tears, the ones that lend you their light when yours is dim…

The ones that believe in you no matter what and help you believe in yourself too..

and so much more….

For me family is everything and some of my family I’ve never met…

Some are amazing Earth angels whose paths have crossed mine right here and on IG and Facebook…

Tonight I dedicate this post to all of you..

My family…

My Earth angels…

My friends…

For it’s because of all of you that I’m where I am today …

Thank you for being here…

Thank you for your consistent love and support…

Thank you for being who you are and

Thank you for sharing YOU with me…

For each and every one of you…

I AM GRATEFULπŸ™

Love Always πŸ’—
