I am staying at a beautiful campsite. I get to see trees and a stream. It is absolutely beautiful until you get to the back of the trailer where there is this torn-down, litter filled fence. Watch the video to learn more.
I was complaining about it and saying that this would be the perfect campsite IF the fence wasn't littered. Then, I talked to a lady who told me the fence was like this because there was a flash flood a few weeks ago. Several people lost their RVs. If we would have been here in the same spot, my RV would have been destroyed.
Today's lesson is to be grateful for what you have. There's no need to complain. Find the beauty in every situation. You can look away from the parts that aren't so pretty and be grateful that you're not in a bad situation.
What can you be grateful for today?
Sometimes a truck blocks the service entrance. Yesterday, I went to go get my oil changed. There is online one oil service station in this small town in Kansas. I got there super early, so I could leave early that day. Watch the video to learn more.
There was a truck blocking the service door. I couldn't get in to change my oil.
Then, I went back to my cousin Debbie's to finish my load of laundry and found out that it had gotten stuck on the washing cycle. I had to start it over again. I went back inside to make my eggs and came back out to put my clothes in the dryer...still stuck.
I was trying to get out by 8:00 AM, so I could make it to a museum in Kansas City. But it turns out, the Universe didn't want me there. I didn't end up leaving until 11:00.
I decided to meditate. I focused on figuring out what I needed to do to get in a better place. I want to open up my Facebook, and this is what I found:
How much is too much? I do say that anything is possible, and we can manifest everything that we would love to come into our lives. But it does take work. Watch the video to learn more.
You're given intuitive pulls, and then you decide where you're going to take them.
This is what I've learned on this trip. I'm wanting to pack it all in. There are so many things to do in the United States that it's not going to happen. So I really had to pare it down and decide what was most important.
What are my priorities? What do I want to spend the most percentage of my time doing?
So when you're going through your day and you're feeling scattered because too much is going on, think about how are you prioritizing things in your life. Think about how much time you are giving to what you...
Blessings come in so many forms. I'm going to show you two different videos that I made just this week. One was from yesterday when I had to move my trailer because a huge storm was coming in. The other was after a hike, and I was feeling fully connected with nature. Watch the video to learn more.
I had to move my trailer in a storm with hail and torrential rain. Christian, a man that works at the wolf sanctuary, had to move the trailer from the sanctuary down to the farm. He had to drive around switchbacks and flooding roads. We barely made it, but I'm blessed that he was able to help me move it.
I also have to tell you that I'm feeling so blessed. I feel like everybody here is in alignment with nature and love. They care for one another and have the best interest in mind for everyone and everything, especially the wolves. It's an amazing place to be.
I want to give a few moments of gratitude that I'm in this place and that I get to...
I'm coming to you this week from Mission Wolf Sanctuary in Colorado. This week I woke up to my carbon monoxide detector going off. Watch the video to learn more.
I've been trying really hard not to use my generator because this sanctuary is a sustainable farm. They use solar energy, and I don't want to have noise pollution which will bother the wolves.
But I let it go so low last night that my carbon monoxide detector went off at 4:30 in the morning. The head of the sanctuary told me I was going to kill my battery, which means I won't be able to ever get out of here.
So, I had to plug in my generator today for the first time in 4 days. I'm trying my best, but I have to remember that I have to take care of myself, too.
Let this be a lesson to you that you can try your best to take care of everyone else, but if you don't take care of yourself too, you're going to totally kill your own battery and eventually will burn...
Today I want to talk about slowing down and divine intervention. Watch this video to learn more.
If you've been watching my blog, then you know I was supposed to be leaving Lubbock on Sunday to head to the wolf sanctuary in Colorado, but my truck had to be put in the shop. The part that is needed to fix my truck is on backorder, and it still hasn't come in. So I've decided to take off.
I could have left this morning at 6 AM, but divine intervention happened. My best friend from junior high, Tiffany, reached out and asked if I was going to be in Lubbock. She doesn't live here, so I decided not to leave today. I am waiting until tomorrow so I can see my oldest friend. This also means that I get to see my favorite aunt and uncle.
Let this be a lesson to us to slow down. Don't be in a hurry. There is such a thing as divine intervention.
When we get in a hurry, we don't think clearly. There's probably something going on that we need...
Oh, what an adventure I have had so far. I have a funny story about the composting toilet to share with you. Watch the video to learn more.
Before I left Houston, I thoroughly cleaned out my black tank because I knew when I got to Lubbock, my brother was going to help me install the compost toilet.
My brother and his three younger kids came in to look at the RV. While I was outside showing my brother something about the composting toilet, one of them pooped in the potty.
I'm staying at a place without sewer hookups. So I have to drive somewhere, fill up my tank, dump it all out, start all over, and then install the composting toilet.
What's the moral of the story?
If you don't want to clean out the black tank more than once, then don't let little kids come into your RV until you're done with a composting toilet.
Here we go. Another adventure with Gaia.
Tuesday was my niece's unbirthday. Her birthday is actually today, but Tuesday was the day everybody could celebrate. So we called it her birthday. She doesn't know the difference because she's three. Here is a video of her when she woke up because I had balloons and things ready for her. Watch the video to learn more.
Here is the lesson that I want to share with you. Any day can be an unbirthday. Just like in Alice in Wonderland, find a celebration no matter what day it is, and enjoy it.
It doesn't have to be your birthday or even a national holiday. You can celebrate just because you are alive and breathing.
Join me in saying "Happy Birthday" to my niece, Emma.
I did my first driving lesson today in my truck. My brain is fried from all the right turns, left turns, and U-turns. Watch this video to learn more.
This is a new experience for me, but I've learned so much. I will admit that I'm overwhelmed, but I'm going to come back tomorrow. I've got this!
I want to say "Thank you" to my trainer, Tony, and to each of you for your continued support.
I'm tackling my fears one at a time by learning how to drive this truck while pulling the trailer. Let this be a reminder to you that you can do hard things even if you are a little scared.
Today, I want to talk about guardian angels. I pray to people that have passed on. They are my guardian angels. Watch the video to learn more.
Who I pray to depends on where I need help. If it's about finances, I'm talking to my dad. If it's about relationships, I'm talking to my mom. If it's about fear and worry, I'm talking to my grandma. When they were alive, these were the areas they excelled.
My Papa, who I don't tend to ask for guidance, was a used car salesman and then a used tractor salesman. He was incredibly good at his job and taught me how to negotiate deals for vehicles. I realized before I went in to buy my RV, I needed to ask Papa for his guidance and to help me make my decision.
I know that he was there with me. He made it happen. I can't even begin to tell you about the great deal that I got.
I did the research and the work, but I used the techniques that he taught me. I feel like he was sitting there...
