The last couple days have been a tad crazy with hurricane warnings, flash floods and tropical storm winds and rain yet I am a-ok after battening down the hatches..🙋.
Today I wanna talk a little about comparing things we do to how others do things.
I’ve had many people send me links to videos of others that are converting buses or vans for living in and although I love getting them, seeing what others do to theirs and getting ideas and inspiration, I noticed that I started to compare myself to what others are doing and in the long run that’s really not a good thing to do. 🤔🙄
My bus is my bus and I love the fact that I’m doing it the way I want to… And I’m sure after I get on the road I’ll want to add or remove things as I need to yet for now I’m doing it exactly how I want too for me, myself and my dogs lol…
There are so many people out there today that are converting a bus or a van to travel in and some to live in… Some have sold their homes and belongings etc and have the finances to make some amazing vans and bus conversions and yet I’m NOT doing this as a fad or because it’s trendy to do.. 🙄🤔🙄
I’m NOT doing this to become a blogging sensation or to get the most followers on IG, Facebook or YouTube… I’m doing it to honor my son and myself, I’m doing it to live in and be able to travel to all the places I want to see and sprinkle my sons ashes as I promised him I would… and most importantly I’m doing this to heal from losing my son and to learn and find what I want to do for the rest of my days as an empty nester and I’m doing this all on my disability income which trust me is NOT a lot yet it IS doable and the only way I can see the country as I want too… FREE to do, go and see as I choose to!! No apartment or house just freedom to come and go as I please… to show others that have or are going through what I am that you CAN live your dreams and you can live again after a devastating loss and you can be happy… YOUR WAY!!!
Not many people get it or understand why, yet it’s not their life it’s mine and as a very good friend of mine said…
“You’re going to be camping for a long time living your dream… You’re not going glamping for the weekend, make it basic and functional for YOU!”
And that’s exactly what I’m doing! I know I’m going to hit bumps and obstacles and that’s OK… I still get to live my life on my terms any way and anywhere I choose.
We all do things differently and that’s what makes us unique… As long as we are doing and or trying our best that’s all that matters…Because your very best is totally different than another’s very best… Cause your best is totally unique to YOU!!! 🙃😎..
Stay true my friends and be YOU!!!
