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’—

Rearrange Your To-Do List

So Your Motivation Doesn’t Go Out The Door

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

This morning when I woke up I looked at the bus and knew I had to get busy organizing things under my bed to make the things I use frequently more easily accessible … Yet my motivation for wanting to do it was gone gone gone ๐Ÿ˜ฅ….

I actually felt like it’s what I do every day, constantly organizing the bus and although it’s not, I really didn’t want to tackle it cause it’s a pain in the ass getting under my bed ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Yet with my journey right around the corner I have got to get it done so I’m not constantly taking things out, putting them back, searching for stuff and feeling totally unorganized cause I can’t find something…๐Ÿ˜•

So I knew I had to switch my thinking ๐Ÿค” and mix up how I was going to tackle the job so it wasn’t something I dreaded ๐Ÿ˜ต because I ready do have to get it done.๐Ÿ˜ฅ

My point in all this is…

There are certain things that we do every day that wind up feeling repetitive yet they are things that we must do…

So instead of looking at them negatively do them in a way that works for you!!!

We don’t wake up all motivated to do our daily tasks each day..

So switch up how you tackle them and then get them out of your way!!! ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Have a productive day world ๐Ÿ’—

Anger Is One Letter Away From Danger

So AlwaysThink Before You Speak

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—.

It always amazes me when I see someone taking their anger out on others even if it’s not the other person’s fault.. or you walk into the crossfire of someone’s anger or bad day and it becomes your fault…๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค”

I’ve always been one that if I’m angry, having a bad day or just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I tend to isolate.. if I’m depressed or really sad, I tend to isolate…

It’s not because of any reason other than I do not believe in projecting my mood onto anyone else…

Whether mad, sad or depressed.. if I want or need to talk about it I will… if not I’ll stay away until I work it out myself, yet I don’t ever project my yucky mood on anyone else.. especially if it’s not their fault I’m in that type of mood to begin with ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Taking your anger or frustration out on anyone isn’t ok…

When I am in the crossfire of someone else’s bad mood, it always reminds me that ANGER is one letter away from DANGER and the only thing that projecting your anger onto someone else does is push the other person away ๐Ÿ™„

Anger leads us to saying things that we don’t really feel or don’t really mean to say, and it brings up trust issues too, especially if something is said that you really don’t mean but say in the heat of the moment!

And although actions do speak louder than words, our actions when we are angry usually match the words that we say…

NOT GOOD…๐Ÿ˜ฑ

So whenever you are angry, remember who or what you’re angry at, think before you say a word… cause some words you can’t take back!!!

The Meaning Of FINE

It’s Totally True Too


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned through the years is to always honor your feelings.. no matter what they are… You’re feelings are always valid!! They are your feelings and no one has the right to dispute them! ๐Ÿ™„

Today a friend gave me a beautiful compliment saying that she loves when someone asks me if I’m ok I say “No.. But I will be!” when I’m not and I don’t ever say “I’m fine!” cause there’s always something underlying with the word FINE..(I’ll tell you my definition of FINE in a sec haha๐Ÿค”… 

I’ve always been one on the up and up with however I’m feeling and ever since my son passed away, I’ve been even more of an advocate for everyone male and female to show their feelings and never ever hide them…. ๐Ÿค—…

Have you ever noticed that if you’re not doing ok or when someone says that they are FINE that there is usually something going on… For me FINE totally means 

F=Fuc*** Up, I=Insecure, N=Neurotic, E=Emotional… 

And while it may not mean all of those at the time… There is always something going on when you say I’m FINE otherwise we say… I’m ok..I’m great etc..๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Always be aware of how your feeling and never ever allow anyone to discredit how you feel cause they are your feelings and each and every one of them is valid… ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

It truly is a gift to wear your feelings on your sleeve… 

Not everyone does it and everyone should… 

Cause bottling up how you feel is harmful to your health and to your well-being… 

Always know that it’s ok to show others how you feel… It shows that you are human.. It shows that you are REAL!!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—.

Have a fantabulous day my friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

When You Believe You Can

You Can

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’—

I could never understand why people would go out of their way too tell you that your dreams are too big or that they are unobtainable!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค” 

Is it because they are jealous? Is it because they would love to do it but don’t have the balls to do so??

Hmmmmm???๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”.

When I was telling people about my wanting to get a bus, convert it and travel all over the country living in it, I luckily had more support than I did disbelievers yet I did get the “why’s” and the “but your a girl alone” statements and of course I thought about that too yet I’m a “I’ll show you!” person so I never allowed the nay slayers to get me down and today I have my bus, it’s almost completed and my dream is truly happening…

Why??

Because…I believed ๐Ÿ’—

Don’t ever allow others to tell you that your dreams are too big or unobtainable.. 

Cause when you truly believe in yourself and you truly believe you can..You CAN ๐Ÿค—.

The Past

Does Not Define You


Hello World 

This morning I was talking with a friend about how often we allow our past to define who we are and how NOT ok that really is. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ

We all have gone through good times and bad. We all have done good things, made mistakes and have done things we may not be proud of,  yet that doesn’t define who we are and it certainly doesn’t mean that we are bad people or that because we had a not so great past it is who we are ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Different circumstances make us do different things and how we may have acted or reacted in the past doesn’t mean we would act or react the same way to the same situation today. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”

We all have a past and we all have made mistakes… 

Good bad or indifferent remember that the past is the past… 

We can’t change it… 

All we can do is learn from it and keep going… One of my favorite sayings is… The first time is a mistake… if we do it again it’s a choice!!! 

All the things you’ve gone through have made you who you are and the past is just that.. 

The past!! 

So don’t let your past define you or stop you from moving on… Keep on striving to better yourself because everything in the past is gone! ๐Ÿค—

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’—
