Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗❤️
I’ve always loved plants and growing herbs yet never had a green thumb so I pretty much stayed away from trying to grow some fresh herbs…
As I was finishing the counter top in the kitchen of the bus I figured with all the big beautiful windows it would be a shame not to have some fresh herbs and so I gave it a try…
I bought some seeds of my favorite herbs, rosemary, thyme, cilantro, sweet basil and purple basil and woo hoo they are coming along beautifully 😍 see pics ⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇⬇
Now I’m not afraid to grow some more so i planted some dill, sage, chives and green onion too and knowing it was going to be raining most of the day and I couldn’t finish detailing the outside of the bus.. I decided to replant my beautiful herbs in the Terra Cotta pots I painted to match the bus and both the herbs and I are so happy 😁..
It made me think of how important it is to nurture ourselves… cause like plants, we don’t need constant attention yet we do need consistent attention..
So take time to nurture yourself.. It doesn’t need to be everyday yet just like plants… If we neglect them they don’t bloom.. When we take care of them they do… So don’t forget to take care of you so you can bloom too..
Happy weekend world 🌸🌱🌸…
In Anything That You Seek
Hello World and Happy Day My Friends🤗
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 😫) and while I was staring at it I noticed that it’s wings weren’t truly identical 😮.. the markings were slightly different 😮😮😮…
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 😮… That there are flaws, that as beautiful as they are…
They aren’t perfect!!! 🤔😮🤔
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 🤔😮🤔
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… 🤗
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…🤗
It doesn’t matter what others think about you…
What matters is what YOU think about yourself!!! 🤔
So don’t look for perfection in anything that you seek
Love ALL you are & ALL your flaws cause you’re beautiful & unique💗🤗
Have a beautiful uniquely you day 💗
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗🤗
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 🤔..
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 🤔..
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 🙄..
That’s what made me realize that I really do need to start making to-do lists again 😒..
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…
like usual we put ourselves on the back burner thinking we aren’t as important as everything else!!!
Hmmmmm🤔🤔🤔 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 💗
“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 hard🤔
Family comes first, kids and significant others come first, our job and careers come first… HALT!!!!! 🤔😠🤔😠🤔
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! 🙄
Self-care is extremely important & should be a habit too… So start making self-care a DAILY habit & start taking care of you! 💗🙏💗🙏💗🙏💗
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 ❤❤….
That’s what made me think of this poem…I was feeling like I doing the same thing I’ve and over again Déjà Vu big-time and remembered a friend telling me about Vujà Dé … Which means seeing something familiar yet looking at it in a completely different way… Hence the changing of the window panels woo hoo hahaha 🤗😁🤗
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 😁❤😁
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… ❤😘❤🌻
Thank you all for your prayers and private messages checking on me.. I’m well and missing and loving you all very very very much…
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🌍
Have Compassion For Yourself Too
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 🤔🙄🤔.
We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. 🤔🙄
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 🤗❤
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗
You’ve Got To Know When To Say No
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…. 🤔
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 ❤😉
You all know my story and I need $328 more to pay the mechanic …I cannot do this alone and need your help to do so. I’m so very close and with your help I can continue the journey to heal my heart and continue to live my life … It’s not going to be an easy journey spreading my sons ashes at all the places he wants me too yet I know that I AM ready and I am NOT alone… because I have all of you to help me when it get hard…🤗❤🤗❤
The active link is below, please help if you are able or share the link to help my story get out there … I thank you all for all your support… I AM grateful
