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’—

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!!!

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

It’s Okay To Be Different

It’s Okay Because You’re Unique

Hello World,

Today was an amazing day and I hope yours was too โค๐Ÿ˜โค

Today I spent the day with a few friends here at the campground and we were talking about what we liked the most about each other as a game so to speak and they literally made me all emotional because they said what they liked about me is that I’m always me, funny, goofy and that I’m “real… 

They said that there are never any surprises with me and I wear my heart on my sleeve…Then one of them said I was like a rainbow for her…always making others feel bright when they are having a hard day even through the  sadness I go through daily missing my son. 

I truly didn’t expect that cause I haven’t known them long and right after I smiled and said thank you I looked up in the sky and there was the most beautiful rainbow and yep I lost it… ๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ข๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ข

MY pics they aren’t the best yet it was amazingly bright and came out of nowhere…

Moral of this day for me… ALWAYS BE YOU… No matter what… Cause that’s what people truly see

Be Careful Of Your Expectations

Nobody Does Things Just Like You


Hello World,

Today while I was scrolling through IG I saw a very good friends @dope.aspirations post that made me really think about the expectations we put on others without even realizing we are doing it. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”

Even little things… Like asking your kids to fill the dishwasher and then getting upset with the way they did it! Did they fail you… NOOOO.. They just didn’t do it like YOU would have and that’s an expectation! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Be careful of what you expect from others because no one can really fail you, they can only do things as they do. Nobody fails intentionally and nobody does things just like you! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You all know my story and I cannot do this alone. Iโ€™ve tried to change the amount I need on my gofundme campaign yet it wonโ€™t allow me too, Iโ€™d have to start a brand new campaign which is crazy yet I only need $628 more to pay the mechanic. Please help if you are able or share the link so I can continue the journey to spread my sons ashes and healโ€ฆ I AM ready

Thank you all for all your love and support. I AM GRATEFUL ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜˜
