Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

You’re Uniquely You


Hello World

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..πŸ™‹.

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. πŸ€”πŸ™„

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.. πŸ™„πŸ€”πŸ™„

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!!! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜Ž..

Stay true my friends and be YOU!!!

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible for I have and am prevailing each and every day. You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ https://www.gofundme.com/riccis-healing-journey

    1. Hi there and oh yes I totally agree… The only reason I go in Facebook is of someone comments to this past cause it automatically posts to Facebook and I am one that will respond to everyone that comments… Otherwise I’d never ever be on Facebook so I totally get it.. And as for Pinterest.. I refuse to look at things that others make out of Clay etc cause yep I’ll compare so I too stay away lol πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ we are not alone my friend πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

  1. You are SOOOOO right! Every one of us is unique. Every one of us has different dreams and different resources to make those dreams come true. Some of us aren’t even sure what our dreams are, or we may have a series of dreams, or maybe just one teeny little dream instead of one big one. It’s all good.

    As you work on your bus, making it into what you need and want, you are encouraging me to work on my dreams, too. Mine are very different from yours, but the principle is the same: each of us is using our own resources to build our dreams into reality.

    I too have seen others who are doing the same thing I’m doing, but they’re doing it differently. Sometimes I have to work hard to remember that I am not them, I am me. What matters is that each of us is doing our best, in our own way, using our own abilities.

    If we were all exactly the same, what a dull world this would be!
