Don’t Look For Perfection

In Anything That You Seek

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends๐Ÿค—

This morning while walking my dog I saw the most beautiful butterfly sitting on a flower….

It sat there for what seemed like forever (of course I didn’t have my phone with me to take a pic ๐Ÿ˜ซ) and while I was staring at it I noticed that it’s wings weren’t truly identical ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.. the markings were slightly different ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ…

All my life I thought butterflies were perfect… I thought that their wings were identical in markings and had never really had the chance to stare at one long enough to notice that they actually aren’t ๐Ÿ˜ฎ… That there are flaws, that as beautiful as they are…

They aren’t perfect!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

Why is it that strive for perfection??

In all reality we know that nothing in life is perfect…

Perfection is a fallicy cause everything has flaws yet we strive for something that can’t really be obtained cause there’s no such thing ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

So today I made a pact with myself to stop looking for or expecting things to turn out perfect cause as long as I’m doing my very best…

My best is perfect for me… ๐Ÿค—

I truly believe that once we stop looking for perfection and we learn to except and embrace not only what we do but WHO we are and we accept all of our flaws .. Our lives become perfectly perfect for us…๐Ÿค—

It doesn’t matter what others think about you…

What matters is what YOU think about yourself!!! ๐Ÿค”

So don’t look for perfection in anything that you seek

Love ALL you are & ALL your flaws cause you’re beautiful & unique๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Have a beautiful uniquely you day ๐Ÿ’—

Divorce Your Past

To Move On To The New


Hello World, 

Yesterday was a very cold and rainy day and as I was painting the counter and shelves it hit me hard that my journey is just a couple weeks away and I lost it๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

I spent the rest of the day trying to figure out how to let go of the sadness and pain because this was supposed to be  and Michael’s journey.. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข

Although i know he’s with me daily in mind, heart and spirit, I couldn’t get past the fact that his physical isn’t with me and I literally cried all day and cried myself to sleep.๐Ÿ˜ข

I started doubting if I can really travel around alone to all the places he wanted us to see sprinkling his ashes along the way and this morning I woke up with this poem in my head.. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

I know it’s going to be a very emotional journey yet I know in my heart and soul that this is meant to be and I believe yesterday was just a OMG IT’S REALLY HAPPENING day and this morning I remembered that I’m not letting go to forget… I’m letting go to move on with my life… 

To live and to begin a new journey, a new chapter in my life and although a tad scary it is time and I am ready. 

Thank you to everyone that has helped me get to this point and for all the love and support received and continue to receive… For you all I am eternally grateful ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

The countdown to my new beginning, my journey to heal has begun! 

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’•

Don’t Stuff Your Feelings

They Always Find Their Way Back


Hello World, 

I haven’t posted a goodnight post in a while and not because of any reason other then I couldn’t think of anything to write ๐Ÿค”

Most of you know that all my posts, poems and quotes are written by me and that they really are about what I’m actually dealing with myself at that moment in time.. ๐Ÿ™„.. (It truly does take me longer to find a background image for my writing than it does to write what I write lol) 

Yet I’ve learned through my writing and by the beautiful responses I’ve received that I am not alone in my thinking nor am I alone with what I’m going through on a daily basis.. Good, bad or indifferent it’s life.. 

I’ve also learned from experience through the years, that stuffing my feelings doesn’t do anything other than compressing them into a ball that gets bigger the more I stuff and no matter what they always come back and always when you least expect it and they do come back tenfold… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Moral of this story: Don’t stuff your feelings cause they only come back to haunt you.. so deal with things as they come up cause no matter how hard they may be to face… In the long run you’ll be glad you did! 

Goodnight Universe..

Much love and sweet dreams ๐Ÿ’•

Men Have Feelings

It’s OK To Show Them Too!


Hello World

Last night I was talking with a very good friend that was upset because he was always told growing up that a man isn’t supposed to cry! A man isn’t supposed to show his feelings and that it makes him weak if he does! 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

THAT IS ONE OF MY BIGGEST HUGEST MOST GIGANTIC PET PEEVES!!! 

WHY AREN’T MEN SUPPOSED TO SHOW THEIR TRUE FEELINGS?? 

WHY ARE THEY TAUGHT NOT TO SHOW THEM?? 

THEY ARE ALLOWED & THEY SHOULD!!!!!!

I raised my boys to know that it’s OK to cry, it’s OK to show how you feel no matter what and every one of their girlfriends throughout the years loved that part of them and I do too! 

Society sucks in that manner because there is nothing wrong with crying! There is nothing wrong with showing your true feelings.. 

In fact it’s healthy to do so!!! 

Women are told they are too sensitive when we show our emotions and men are taught not to show them!! 

How ass backwards is that????? 

To all the men out there that were told that showing your feeling isn’t OK… BULL!!! 

To all the women out there that are told you’re too sensitive… BULL!!! 

Showing how you feel is showing that you are real… So allow yourself to honour your feelings and allow yourself to be real!!!

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

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 ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

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! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜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… ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‰.

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. ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜

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 ๐ŸŒปโ™ฅ
