Don’t Forget To Take A Break

It’s Really Good To Do

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends πŸ’—

It always makes me giggle when I’m on a roll doing something, make plans to totally finish it the next day and then mother nature says…

“NOT”…😁😁😁

When I worked in corporate America, I always had to go go go and wouldn’t stop until I was done…

Which always stressed me out and wore me out as well..😩😩

Since I got the bus home and made a solid decision to take my time and do it right, it never fails that whenever that go go go side pops up, mother nature and the universe do something that makes me have to slow down and take a break πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Yesterday I didn’t stop with the taping and painting on the bus all day long… It was a beautiful day and that go go go side of me flared up big-time…

By the end of the day my shoulders and arms were so sore that all I did was make a salad for dinner and plopped into bed…

The whole time thinking that today I was not gonna stop until it was finished… πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„…

Yeah right!

Woke up this morning to torrential rain that hasn’t stopped…

So I guess it was mother nature’s way of making me take a break hahaha so don’t forget to stop and take a little break or two.. cause anything that must get done will get done when it needs too πŸ˜πŸ™ƒπŸ˜..

Watch For Burnout Cues

Take Some Time For You


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends πŸ€—πŸ’—

Have you ever noticed that during the winter season and the holidays we tend to get more burnt out then other times of the year? πŸ€”πŸ€”… 

We catch colds easier, we’re way more tired and stressed too.. is it because it’s cold out?? Is it because it’s Christmas and we’re rushing around like lunatics?? 

Or is it simply because we get so caught up in everything we want to get done before the end of the year that we forget to stop and take time out for ourselves? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”.

Almost everyone I know is either stressed because of Christmas, saying they don’t have enough time or money to get stuff done or they are sick as a dog with a cold or flu!! 

Hmmmmm πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” there really isn’t any difference between this time of year and any other time of year yet we make ourselves crazy and wind up getting burnt out, physically ill or both!! πŸ˜₯πŸ˜–πŸ˜·..

We truly are in control of our physical and emotional well being and our body does give us cues when we need to chill out and slow down… 

The problem is.. 

We usually don’t listen until it’s too late… 

We wind up exhausted or physically ill and then we can’t do anything… Which again makes everything worse!!! πŸ™πŸ™„πŸ€”..

No holiday, job or person is worth your getting burnt out or sick…

Listen to your body… 

Watch out for the cues… 

Slow down a little bit and remember to take care of YOU!! 😊..

Time Never ChangesΒ 

The Hours Remain The Same


Hello World,  

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 wayπŸ˜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™₯

Slow Down

Enjoy Every Moment


Hello World,

Since I’ve been here in New Jersey seeing old friends and family… I’ve had a wealth of different emotions going on… Flashbacks from my childhood, my teenage years and more… Then it hit me… 😱 πŸ™„

All our lives we rush rush rush… We rush to become a teenager, we rush to get out of high school, we rush to graduate collage, we rush to find a career, we rush to have a family, then we rush to retire, we think about all the things we wanted to do and wonder where the time went and why we never did things we wanted to do as a child… πŸ€”πŸ™„πŸ€”..

Do the things you want to do and take your time to do it… So when you look back on your life you can smile cause you made it through it… πŸ€—πŸ˜πŸ€—

Time is very precious and it goes by really fast…. So take the time to slow yourself down and make every moment last…πŸ€—β€πŸ€—

Have a beautiful day world πŸŒ»πŸ€—

Attitude Affects Everything

Gratitude Affects Even More


Hello World,

Patience is a virtue and a very hard lesson as well… Yet we tend to let time get the best of us and allow it to deter or stop us from having the things we desire… Then once we achieve all the things that we want we get cocky and then we forget… That we can lose everything we have as fast as we achieved it!

Don’t allow getting everything you want in life make you think you’re better than cause that’s having an attitude that affects everything and everyone around you… Be grateful for what you have and for everything yet to come for your attitude affects everything yet being grateful affects even more πŸ™πŸ’•πŸ™ 

🌞 Have a beautiful day world 🌞
