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’—

When You Make A To-Do Listย 

Put Yourself On It Too


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

All this week I’ve been rearranging the bus to make more room cause it was totally set up for just me and I hadn’t taken into consideration that other than my bed, there really wasn’t anywhere for anyone to come in and sit down ๐Ÿค”.. 

So after my daughter said she wants to travel with me during her summer break from college, I knew I had to redo the bus to make more room or we’d be literally on top of each other the whole trip which would open a huge can of OMG GET OUT OF MY WAY.. MOVE..ETC ๐Ÿค”..

Well I’ve been so focused on rearranging the bus that this morning when I woke up I realized that there were a couple of things I had scheduled to do this week FOR ME that I totally forgot about ๐Ÿ™„.. 

That’s what made me realize that I really do need to start making to-do lists again ๐Ÿ˜’..

We get so focused on the big things that need to get done each day, that we tend to forget about the little things and then have to rush rush rush to get them done which in turn leaves no time to do the things we want to do for us… 

Or ….

like usual we put ourselves on the back burner thinking we aren’t as important as everything else!!! 

Hmmmmm๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” So not true!!!!

Making daily to-do lists are very important to do… Just don’t forget that one of those spots should always be used for YOU!!!

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’—

Self-Care

Needs To Be A Habit Too


Hello World 

“Sometimes The Most Important Thing In Your Whole Day, Is The Rest We Take Between Two Deep Breaths!” Etty Hillesum

Last night while reading the diary of Etty Hillesum, I came across the above quote and it made me think of how we constantly put everything and everyone before ourselves, sticking ourselves on the back burner with the “I’ll take care of me later” mindset and it hit me kinda hard๐Ÿค”

Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค” 

What about ourselves??? 

We make it a daily habit to take care of everyone and everything else yet the most important thing to do is to take care of ourselves and we totally slack on it and then wonder where frustration, resentments and all that other crap comes from! ๐Ÿ™„

Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

Dรฉjร  Vu

Vujร  Dรฉ


Hello World,

I have been a busy lady getting the bus all ready… Yet if course the window privacy panels were driving me insane cause no matter what they did not wanna stick to the vinyl along the windows unless I wanted to use crazy glue which would have defeated the purpose of me bringing able to take the up and down… SOOOOOOOO I changed them yet again.. Lol lol… There’s a before and after pic and OMG I am now loving them โคโค…. 

That’s what made me think of this poem…I was feeling like I doing the same thing I’ve and over again Dรฉjร  Vu big-time and remembered a friend telling me about Vujร  Dรฉ … Which means seeing something familiar yet looking at it in a completely different way… Hence the changing of the window panels woo hoo hahaha ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—

I also put in the fridge (see pic) so the kitchen is almost done which I’m really happy about and once that’s done, within a few days I’ll put down the rest of the flooring and then other than the inside electricity I’ll almost ready to hit the road for the Keys to go help clean up ๐Ÿ˜โค๐Ÿ˜

Hurricane Irma really messed up a ton of cell towers and internet lines so my service has been really spuradic hence my not being here as often, yet I wanted to stop in and say HELLO WORLD while I had the chance to say everything is moving along nicely… I’m down to only needing $424 to complete the inside electricity and my gofundme link is still active and below if anyone can help… โค๐Ÿ˜˜โค๐ŸŒป

Self-Empathy, Self-Love

Have Compassion For Yourself Too


Hello World,

This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”.

We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too… 

So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest ๐Ÿค—โค

Have a beautiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

Set Healthy Boundaries

You’ve Got To Know When To Say No


Hello World,

Sometimes setting boundaries aren’t very
easy to do… Especially when someone we care about is stuck not knowing what to do…
Yet sometimes we just have to say no, we have to strand our ground… Cause other people issues can stress you out and that can weigh you down…. ๐Ÿค”

Setting healthy boundaries shows that you’re aware, of all the things you can and can’t do, it doesn’t mean you don’t care…. Saying no is a complete sentence and it shows that you are strong… Don’t let others make you feel bad cause saying no isn’t wrong โค๐Ÿ˜‰
