Days 108 - 109
To live full of joy. Full of love. Full of peace.
That is the goal each of us should have. The fullest, best life possible.
I put the pictures shown above (and message in the picture) on the fridge when I left Idaho in October. I had not felt the joy shown on all our faces for the majority of my adult life. So, I felt that I needed the reminder to live JOYFULLY.
Life has a tendency to make us too serious. Perhaps it's a person in your life, a situation, or maybe your own thoughts. But, if you can live in the energy of gratitude - gratitude for what you see, feel, hear, touch, smell - you can get out of the negative cycles that our brains create.
This life is fleeting. It is ever changing. Whatever your circumstances are in this moment could be changed in an instant.
So, find the joy. Feel the love for all. Find peace in knowing everything will work out exactly the way it is supposed to. That way may not be what we want at first... but it is for the best. In some way, even the greatest pain/loss can create a ripple of blessings for the greatest good of all.
Jordan and I have taken a nice stroll the last few days. Finding different paths to walk and just BE. To feel the sun on our skin, the wind in our hair, the joy of being with someone who cares so deeply... we are living our best life.
Are you? What do you need to do to get there if you aren't?
It might be as simple as feeling gratitude. I see the pictures on my fridge many times a day (the fridge is in direct eyesight of the front door) and every time, my heart smiles. I am eternally grateful for the people I've met and the family I have. Blood relatives and "adopted" I am truly blessed.
As far as the RV life goes, we have one tank that never shows empty so I tried a few things to clean the sensor... it didn't work. Oh well, we know how many showers before it's full.
Yesterday, I tried Key Lime pie FINALLY (I'm not sure I had ever had it before). It actually was not what I ordered. I was craving chocolate - big surprise, I love chocolate - but the piece of cake they brought out was awful and we sent it back. I think that's the first time I have ever sent food - let alone dessert - back. Our waitress brought the Key Lime pie out, on the house. What a lovely surprise! It was absolutely delicious so we left her a hefty tip!
Life is too short to not enjoy the things you love. I miss my family back home but man oh man, I love this life!
Well, I have work to do today. The crummy weather will likely keep us inside all day but that's quite alright, it allows me more time to create.
Much love to you all. Find your joy and cherish EVERY SINGLE MOMENT because it could end in an instant. Stop waiting for everything to be just right and live your best life possible. One day, you'll wake up and realize that everything has always been just right... because it got you to where you are. Full of joy, love and peace.
I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
