It MUST be the weather!!! At least that is what I’m gonna blame! What you ask?? My mood. My mood has been really….well I think it was Donna of (Cave Dwellings) that said it best…. I’m in a “blue funk.” I’m not sure what in the world a blue funk is but I would bet that pretty well sums it up. Thanks Donna… I have the diagnosis!!
It is hot…hot and humid. Hot and humid makes everything look like it is struggling to just stay alive….even the humans. Our temperatures have reached into the 100s more times than I want to recall and the heat index has made it seem like desert temperatures.
So I begin to ask myself, “why am I sitting in this campground in a motor home?”
That is when I started reading a few of our “friends” blogs. It’s interesting how the “future” full-timers talk about how we, the current full-timers, keep them motivated and inspired. I remember those days. I discovered today that it really goes both ways.
Reading about how several of our “friends” are purging their houses, waiting for someone to look at their house or make an offer. Reading about the yard sales, the painting, cleaning and the WAITING…..WAITING!! Gee, it brought back so many memories!
That is when I took a look around and realized how lucky and fortunate we are; even if we are sitting in a HOT campground. We have the freedoms that come with this lifestyle. We have a debt free, job free and almost stress free lifestyle to live (nothing is totally stress free).
We have met some of the most fantastic people in the short time we have been full-timing. There are no words to describe how these wonderful people have impacted our lives. Then there is this wonderful “family” of bloggers we belong to. I used the word “family” because I read where
Sam (Sam and Donna-5th Wheel Vagabonds) used
that term. You are right Sam…it is a family of sorts.
Wow! I think I am beginning to recover from my “blue funk.” Just stopping and thinking about where we have been and where we are now helps you realize just how blessed your life is.
Thanks for stopping by and helping me cure the “blue funk.” You are important to Mike and I and we wish you all a wonderful weekend full of good times and NO “blue funks.”
Thought for Today:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
