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’—

Value All You Have

Love All That You Are


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—

Why is it so much easier to tell others how amazing they are or to help another see their own self worth? ๐Ÿค”

Why is it so much easier to give praise than to receive it?? To give a compliment yet hard to accept one? ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”

Is it because we are taught that if we think too much about ourselves that it’s selfish? Or that we’re conceited?

Or is it because we don’t want to act or seem like we think we’re all that? Hmmmmm?๐Ÿค”

We are taught that we can be anything we want to be and that if we truly believe we can, we will!! 

So why do we put our own self worth on the back burner? ๐Ÿค”

There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself kudos and knowing that you did a good job at something… 

There’s nothing wrong with knowing you’re a good person and believing that you can do anything! ๐Ÿ˜

Don’t ever feel bad for patting yourself on the back cause when we value all that we have and all that we do… We attract more goodness and stay more positive too!! 

So appreciate & be grateful for all that you are… You’re worth all your desires… 

You ARE a star โญ๐ŸŒŸโญ

Don’t Compare Yourself To Others

You’re Uniquely You


Hello World

The last couple days have been a tad crazy with hurricane warnings, flash floods and tropical storm winds and rain yet I am a-ok after battening down the hatches..๐Ÿ™‹.

Today I wanna talk a little about comparing things we do to how others do things. 

I’ve had many people send me links to videos of others that are converting buses or vans for living in and although I love getting them, seeing what others do to theirs and getting ideas and inspiration, I noticed that I started to compare myself to what others are doing and in the long run that’s really not a good thing to do. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

My bus is my bus and I love the fact that I’m doing it the way I want to… And I’m sure after I get on the road I’ll want to add or remove things as I need to yet for now I’m doing it exactly how I want too for me, myself and my dogs lol… 

There are so many people out there today that are converting a bus or a van to travel in and some to live in… Some have sold their homes and belongings etc and have the finances to make some amazing vans and bus conversions and yet I’m NOT doing this as a fad or because it’s trendy to do.. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„

I’m NOT doing this to become a blogging sensation or to get the most followers on IG, Facebook or YouTube… I’m doing it to honor my son and myself, I’m doing it to live in and be able to travel to all the places I want to see and sprinkle my sons ashes as I promised him I would… and most importantly I’m doing this to heal from losing my son and to learn and find what I want to do for the rest of my days as an empty nester and I’m doing this all on my disability income which trust me is NOT a lot yet it IS doable and the only way I can see the country as I want too… FREE to do,  go and see as I choose to!! No apartment or house just freedom to come and go as I please… to show others that have or are going through what I am that you CAN live your dreams and you can live again after a devastating loss and you can be happy… YOUR WAY!!! 

Not many people get it or understand why, yet it’s not their life it’s mine and as a very good friend of mine said… 

“You’re going to be camping for a long time living your dream… You’re not going glamping for the weekend, make it basic and functional for YOU!” 

And that’s exactly what I’m doing! I know I’m going to hit bumps and obstacles and that’s OK… I still get to live my life on my terms any way and anywhere I choose. 
We all do things differently and that’s what makes us unique… As long as we are doing and or trying our best that’s all that matters…Because your very best is totally different than another’s very best… Cause your best is totally unique to YOU!!! ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜Ž..

Stay true my friends and be YOU!!!

Know Who You Are

Be Confident Too


Hello World

This morning while I was drinking my morning cup of coffee, I starting thinking about the difference between KNOWING that we can do something and THINKING that we can ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” and there actually is a difference between the two…๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„…

Our minds can play tricks on us and when you think we can do something and we go to try to do it. Our minds can put doubt in there and it can halt us in our tracks… When we KNOW we can do something we have the confidence to actually go out and do it without any doubts or fears…. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„.

Yes HOW and WHAT we think about ourselves and the things we do is extremely important because we are what we think we are… Yet it all boils down to CONFIDENCE… Confidence in WHO we are and CONFIDENCE in WHAT we do… ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜.

SOOOOOOOO today be confident in what you’re doing and in who you are… Because once you have the confidence to do and to BE.. Nothing can get in your way…๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ’ช.

Make A To-BE-List

Take Charge Of How You Feel

Hello World,

This morning as I was making a little list of things I want to do… It made me stop a think a bit about how I want to feel too ๐Ÿค”.

We tend to judge how we feel on the things that we have done… We forget to stop and appreciate where we’ve been and how far we’ve come ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™„….

So I decided to make a TO-BE-LIST and take charge of how I want to feel today.. Cause it truly is only up to me how I feel throughout my day… No one has control of how I think or how I react… Cause I’m the one that makes that choice and that my friends is a fact ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜.

……………..

Working on the countertop and having running water in the bus today and I feel great about it and very productive… I’m down to only needing help with $384 to finish getting the inverter, the batteries and the solar panel kit… My gofundme link is still active and below for anyone that can help or share the link so I can make the goal of being in the road on my son’s birthday October 4th. ๐Ÿค—โค๐Ÿค— Thank you to everyone for all your love and support for it’s helped me get where I am today and I’m so very grateful โค๐Ÿ™โค… Have a beYOUtiful day world… back to work I go! ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—

There’s No Such Thing As Perfection

Everyone and Everything Is Unique


Hello World,

Yesterday when I was walking in the rain, the smell, the sounds, the feeling of the rain on my skin made me feel refreshed and centered…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป…

I rarely take an umbrella cause I love the way the rain feels, It’s cleansing and refreshing and also helps things heal๐ŸŒง๐ŸŒป.

The different types of flowers, the different types of trees… The sounds of the rain falling on the river, the sounds of the birds and the bees… All made me see how different and unique this beautiful world of ours is…. ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒŽ

So don’t strive for perfection, cause perfection can’t be found… Just take a walk in nature and you’ll see that beauty is all around ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Have a beYOUtiful day world ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒ
