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’—

Indecision Is A Decision

Make A Decision That’s Right For You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

For the past few months I’ve been driving myself crazy about the little fridge I bought when I first got the bus ๐Ÿค” I thought it would be big enough for my needs and slowly but surely I wound up not liking it at all cause I truly couldn’t put anything in it… ๐Ÿ˜•.. like not even a gallon of anything or fruits and veggies

I kept going back and forth in my head mainly because I couldn’t figure out the wattage a bigger one would use and if the inverter I have would be able to keep it running 24/7 ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ต

Well after months of being indecisive.. I decided that since I will be living in the bus indefinitely and it will truly be my home on wheels, I took the plunge, got a bigger one WHICH I LOVE (pics below) lifted my bed so it would fit underneath and turned the area where the little fridge was into my pantry and I couldn’t be happier… ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—.. My inverter is more than enough to run the new fridge too๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š

I had help building the pantry too… NOT…๐Ÿ˜ธ Meet Boots ๐Ÿ˜ผ he’s my other baby and is constantly trying to help me with the bus.. Hahaha help me by getting in my way, playing with the cords etc…๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ผ๐Ÿ˜ผ.. But he is a lover and a bed hog too ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜ป..

Needless to say…

My point in all this is that our minds can send mixed signals and really confuse us too… Indecision is a decision my friends so make a choice that works best for you!!! ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™„..

So here’s the update with my mini fridge and my pantry and my furry little helper haha… Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

Always Be True

To You

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I’ve never been one to sugar coat anything and have actually been told I can be brutally honest sometimes yet for me I’d rather have someone tell me the outright truth even if I may not want to hear it then to sugar coat or patronize me ๐Ÿ™„

Well…

Yesterday I got a tad hard on the mom of the little boy I babysit…

ok not a tad… I did let her have it…

And afterwards I thought oops maybe that was a little harsh… And just as I went to apologize to her for being so harsh.. She came up to me, gave me a big hug and thanked me for basically calling her on her shit… Then proceeded to tell me that’s why she loves me so much ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

It made me take a look at myself and actually made me smile because looking back I realized I’ve always been this way… It’s just who I am ๐Ÿ˜‰

We always tend to be harder on ourselves and although I’ve made bad choices throughout my life, have been hurt and have hurt, have trusted the wrong people, have given, been taken from and have made lots of mistakes…

The bottom line is….

I’m me…

And honestly I wouldn’t change a thing…๐Ÿ™„

It’s taken me a long time to like…No to love who I am and to embrace my good and bad sides…To accept who I am and make changes when necessary… And I’m ok with who I am today ๐Ÿ˜

I guess my point is…

Learn to love who you are and to embrace all that you are…

If there’s something you don’t like within yourself…

Change it…

Just remember YOU ARE YOU and don’t change for anyone.. except you..

Just always be true to YOU ๐Ÿ’—

Take Time To Be Alone

It’s Very Good For You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

The last few days I’ve been doing a lot of things in the bus.. Kinda like nesting…

Getting things situated where I want them, getting organized, building a new bench that turns into a bed and setting up routes, places and people I wanna see and basically just getting ready to get ready to hit the road ๐Ÿ˜ฏ…

I’ve also been doing a lot of contemplating and being that my journey in the bus is only 3 months away, I got really sad about my son and my dog not being physically here with me ๐Ÿ˜ข ..

Of course I know they will always be with me, yet I’m also fully aware that I’ll have sad days too and that’s also ok ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข..

So I took a few days to process my thoughts and let my feelings out for a while… Then last night I released them and today I woke up with a smile…

So remember that when you’re up in your head.. that being alone is ok… process your thoughts then release them and wake up to a brand new day ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—..

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—

Don’t Ever Take Your Anger

Out On Someone Else

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

I wasn’t going to post today but I just experienced something really cool that we don’t get to see to often ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I was picking up a few things at my least favorite store yet the only one in the little town I’m in, and as I was walking up to the register I overheard a very nasty customer screaming at the cashier… ๐Ÿ˜ 

It was very obvious that the poor cashier couldn’t do anything about an item that was out of stock, yet the customer did and said everything nasty that she could to try to get the cashier upset and make it out to be her fault..๐Ÿ˜ฑ..

Yet the cashier kept calm and didn’t even make a face at the nasty person…๐Ÿ˜

Just as I got to the end of the line, a lady and gentlemen walked up to the nasty customer and said…

“It’s not her fault they are out of stock and you have no right to take your anger out on her. If you have a problem take it up with management, but do not scream at this girl.. she is just doing her job and has no control of what is in or out of stock.. So take your anger elsewhere because none of us want to hear it and she doesn’t deserve to be treated like that by you or anyone!!!” ๐Ÿ˜ 

It was so cool and everyone in line started clapping!!! Needless to say the nasty customer left in a hurry and in a huff… ๐Ÿ˜

The cashier was amazing and no matter what was being said kept her cool and gave the rest of us exceptional service with a smile like nothing happened at all๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

There’s lots of things that happen that make us want to scream but don’t take your anger out on others or treat another mean.. so when something yucky happens remember this quote too…

“Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

The Only Thing You CAN Control

Is Who You Are Within

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.
It always amazes me how whenever you’re having a discussion about certain subjects like politics or religion, if you don’t think and feel how the other person thinks or feels..

Your wrong…

And… They will do anything to try to convince you that how they think or feel is how you should think or feel too ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

We are all taught to stand up for what we believe as well as to speak our own truths yet others will totally try to change how you feel about things and try to convince you that what they believe is right and what you believe is wrong….

hmmmmmm ๐Ÿค”

We all have the right to have an opinion, we all have the right to believe what we believe…

What we don’t have the right to do is to tell another how they should think or feel and we don’t have the right to tell someone that what they believe and or feel is wrong, yet alone try to convince them into believing that your way is the right and only way…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

If I see a flower in a field and say “what a pretty pink flower” and you think the flower is lavender… Does that mean I’m wrong and you’re right???

Nope

Cause we all see, hear and process things differently and that is totally OK!!!

We can’t control the weather, we can’t control the wind… The only thing that we control is how we feel within…

Arguing is a waste of time, it depletes your energy too… You can’t control how others think because they don’t think like YOU!!!

Stay True To You

It’s Empowering To Be You

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Yesterday I was reading an article about how people tend to have a “Blank Check” personality and especially women.. and it really hit home with me then later in the day a little boy that I babysit told me he loves me cause I’m always the same Auntie Ricci ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”..

We all do tend to have different personalities yet why???

We are different at work then we are at home… We’re different when we go shopping than we are when we go out on the town… We’re different with our friends in person than we are with online friends…

Hmmmmm๐Ÿค”

We tend to put different masks on many times throughout the day and although I know our actions must match the situation, we don’t have to change “Who” we are, yet we do.

I will be the first to say I have a sailors mouth haha yet I also know when to let it flow and when to curb it..

Yet I am still the same Ricci whether I’m using my sailors mouth or not ๐Ÿ™„..

My point is…

Just like a flower doesn’t compare itself to others in the field..

Always be who you truly are cause it’s empowering to be real!! It doesn’t matter what others think or what they say or do… The most amazing thing you can do for yourself is to always be true to you!!๐Ÿ˜

Have a fantabulous day world ๐Ÿ’—
