Setbacks Don’t Define You

It’s How You Handle Them That Does

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why does it always seem like when everything is going good, you feel like it’s smooth sailing and you’re so close to finishing something, BAM๐Ÿ’ฅ you get slapped hard with something that sets you back big-time๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿ˜ก

The past couple days, in between the rain, I finished putting the flowers and butterfly stickers up the sides of the bus, I replaced ALL the running lights bulbs and covers, I added elastic to the shelving so things don’t fly off the shelves (see picsโฌ‡๏ธ),I secured the fridge and got everything I need to install the ladder on the back plus more and then..

BAM๐Ÿ’ฅ

I find out today that I have to move the bus to it’s own site because the rules state there cannot be 2 RV’s in one site ๐Ÿคจ๐Ÿคฌ๐Ÿคจ

Now technically we all know that the bus is NOT a fully self-contained RV yet because I do sleep in it and cook in it etc.. The manager and owner of the park are being…(best not say what I’d like too) and I have no choice but to move to another site or move the bus over to storage which I can’t do because there’s no electricity in storage and I need electricity to finishing working on it๐Ÿ˜”..

So $635 total for me to move to another site starting Tuesday to June 9th..Which not only pushes my departure date back over 2 weeks, It also means I literally cannot spend a dime between now and then and it totally depletes my emergency road savings ๐Ÿ˜ญ so I’ve got to make sure everything is totally on point now..๐Ÿ˜ฉ

Does this upset me and throw a wrench in my plans..

Yep big-time..

Yet I cannot and will not allow it to beat me down..๐Ÿคจ..

My point in all this is that setbacks happen, they’re a part of life…

Even if no fault of your own, you have two choices..

You can either let it break you or you can stay strong and keep moving forward…

for me I only have one coffee and that is to keep going no matter what ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜‰.

So my friends no matter what life throws at you… Don’t give up… Life really sucks when you love with regrets so keep moving forward no matter what!!! You’ll get to where you’re going eventually and as I always say… Even baby steps get you to your goals and dreams ๐Ÿ˜˜

Have a beautiful day world ๐Ÿ’–

Striving For Perfection

Makes Everything Harder To Do

Hello World 

Happy Day My Friends ๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒป

Last night while I was finishing a few things in the bus (see a couple night time photos below๐Ÿ˜)… I started looking around and of course immediately started picking apart the little things that in my head weren’t perfect and as I was doing it I caught myself and started laughing ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚. Like the little lights that on one end will NOT stay up lol

It’s not like I’ve been hired to convert the bus for someone else and things have got to be on point… right… I’m not getting paid to do it lol

The bus is for me and me alone… Yet I started thinking about how much we strive for perfection and compare what we do or have done with others! Hmmmmm๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿค”.

Nothing in life is perfect, not even human beings….. Yet we strive to be the best or we aim to do or have something better than everyone else and everyone’s best is different.. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Instead of striving for perfection just do your very best… your best will always be different cause you’re different from all the rest… 

Don’t compare what you do or have done with what others have done or do… Cause that’s setting yourself up for disappointment just stay true to you! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜

Goodnight Universe ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿค—

Change The Way You Look At Things

The Things You’re Looking At Will Change Too

Hello World,

Life isn’t a one way street and neither are the roads that lead us to our goals and dreams… There are so many ways to look at things, yet we tend to get set on only one way and then get disappointed when it doesn’t go the way we hoped.

When we only look at one way of doing something or going somewhere, we’re not looking at all our options and in all reality there’s many ways to do things and many roads to take to get to the same place.

Just because we get a negative reaction when we thought we’d see a positive one, doesn’t mean we’re doing it wrong, going about it the wrong way or going down the wrong road… It usually means we need to step back, pause and look at all our options.

Sometimes all we need to do is change the way were looking at it and and change our point of view, and when we do we’ll totally see what we’re looking at changes too…
