Scared vs Fear

There Really Is A Difference

Hello World, 

This morning I was reading a comment my friend Cobs (@thecobweboriumemporium) made about my post yesterday and it really hit home because she reminded me that there is a difference between being scared and fear… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Yesterday in my post I said that it was a tad scary knowing that my journey and a new chapter in my life was about to begin and it is true… 

It’s something new and something I’ve never done yet there is no fear at all because I know I can always go home and my reasoning for getting the bus was also because if I pull into somewhere that just doesn’t feel right I could just get in the drivers seat and drive off without having to go outside๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I get so many people that ask me if I’m afraid and or don’t get how a female could travel around the country in a bus ALONE without being in total fear.. Yet Being that I listen to my gut and or follow my instincts I’m actually very excited and not fearful at all. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿค—

Fear is a noun and can also be used as a verb. Scared is an adjective. Fear is an emotion. Scared is the state of experiencing fear like being spooked at a haunted house ๐Ÿ˜จ Fear is usually long term and much harder to push past than the temporary feeling of getting or being scared.. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

As my friend Cobs said… Being scared is your bodies way of telling you to be aware and to take a look around and make sure no dangers there… 

So when you’re starting something new and you feel you can’t go on… Push past that scary feeling and keep on moving on โ˜บ๐Ÿค—

Have a beYOUtiful day world and thank you Cobs for the inspiration my post today.. Love you huge my friend ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

Listen To That Voice Within

Be Courageously You


Hello World, 

Tonight while having a torrential downpour something kept telling me to go for a walk in the rain. 

At first I even thought it was crazy cause when I say pouring I mean the sky opened up and just dumped and still is yet that little voice inside of me kept saying go it’s OK go.. so I did and I got so drenched that my feet and hands were literally pruned lol lol it was an amazing feeling like being cleansed by the universe… (I love walking in the rain…) 

Yet when I got back my neighbor said I was crazy and courageous for walking in a storm such as we are having (did I mention there was lightning in the far far far distanceโšก)  

It made me think about the little voice that told me it was OK… That I’d be OK ๐Ÿค— and I was and am.. ๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ˜Œ

I guess the moral of this story is: So many times we go against what we feel within and wind up regretting it and tonight although that little voice was telling me to go for a walk in a crazy ass rain storm.. I listened and I feel amazing.. ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒง๐Ÿค—

Listen to what your gut says even if it’s something as silly as going for a walk in a torrential downpour cause listening to that voice within is the most courageous thing we can do!!! 

Goodnight universe!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒง๐Ÿ˜

Listen To Your Gut

It Always Knows What’s Up


Hello World

Yesterday I took a break from the bus and decided to work on some crafts… My head was telling me “no work on the bus!” Yet my gut kept saying no… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

I use to make pretty covers for journals,  wish boxes and different frames for my quotes and poems all the time, making them with clay and it was very relaxing and helped me get outta my head… yet I stopped because I felt I lost my creativity mindset and tucked all that stuff away ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yesterday I decided to listened to what my gut said and got out all my clay and sat on the bed in the bus and knocked out 4 pretty boxes for some friends and it actually felt really good to do so and I didn’t work on the bus at all ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰.

Moral of this story: Our gut always sends us signals of what we should or shouldn’t do… So listen to what your gut says cause it won’t ever lie to you!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—.

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

True Friends Will Always Stay

Even If Your Far Away


Hello World,

The last 10 days has been incredible and amazing… 

Seeing friends that are actually family, that I’ve know for over 40 yrs yet haven’t seen since 1987 has been an incredible event in my life… 

Going back to the places I grew up, having flashbacks of the times I spent there from 5 yrs old to 29 yrs old brought up past emotions from when my mom passed in 1985 and even issues that I thought I had dealt with yet actually stuffed… 

Yet it truly was incredible and very much needed… โค๐Ÿ‘จโ€โคโ€๐Ÿ‘จ

Being there and seeing old friends and making some new…truly helped me realize what should be important to you.. and it doesn’t matter if you’re together or apart… True Friends are family that stay in your heart.. and no matter where you go or what ever you do… True friends will always be right there for you!!!! 

Have a beautiful day my friends ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Beauty Is A Feeling

That’s Felt Within Your Heart


Hello World,

Today I had get some tape from the store up the street and while looking at something my friend made me laugh hard… I hadn’t really noticed the gentleman in the same isle as me and as I turned around he smiled and said I have an infectious laugh and it made him laugh too…. His wife who was standing there giggled and said it always amazes her that he can FEEL someone’s genuine laughter… I looked at her with a puzzle look and she smiled and said he’s deaf… ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

Well you all know me and of course it touched me to the bone and because I know a little sign language I asked him how he knew and he took my hand and put it on his heart… Yeah I lost it… ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Yet in a huge warm OMG way and that’s where this poem today came from…โคโคโค

Please please remember that beauty truly comes from the heart as well as kindness does. It’s a feeling, an emotion and it comes from within… So spread a bit of sunshine today to someone you don’t know cause that’s how we can change the world and that’s how true beauty grows

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป
