INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
Still not able to have photos on this for you, sorry. I just got a new computer and am hoping that I will be able to include shots next week. For now, find photos on my Facebook page >>> https://www.facebook.com/isityou/
Many people I’ve seen live life with half-effort, hoping things will get better—somehow. I’ve learned that, no matter how things are, we have to find a way to live our life with JOY, always knowing things will get better. I’ve gone through so many losses in my life, but still, aim toward joy.
How is your outlook on your life? Are there changes you could make to improve things?
This week I had a taste of death once again. Covid consumed me, but I won in the end. I do not fear death, I do understand it well.
My sister Sandy, I’m so glad we talked last night. It feels so good to connect with you.
And, Alice, great to reconnect with you. I hope we can meet one day.
In hard times we go through and with every decision we make, we must choose among possible alternatives and determine which choice best suits our purpose. The more we learn, studying with questions, the sharper our judgment becomes.
Remember, the capacity to become wiser and to make better judgments lives within each of us, if we continuously climb that wisdom ladder.
WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>
Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking. This is why I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves.
Inspirational quotes provide us with a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.
I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
At any age, you can (and should) make changes to make your life better.
You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determine everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.
When you improve the quality of your thinking, you change the quality of your life—sometimes instantly!
Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control.
You have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!
To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule, next to impossible.
But the best part is, the more you accomplish, the more you’ll want to do – the higher you’ll want to reach! So, as long as you have the hunger for success, you will always have the power within you to achieve it.
Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.
I hope the words I pick do help you.
BE INSPIRED BY THESE WORDS>>
Do what you MUST do!
Not just what you WANT to do.
Now, it’s time to get out there and do
something incredible that you can rejoice in!
MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
4/2—Getting away from cities, I found Zephyrhills Library in a town with the same name. Yet, their wi-fi is not working, I will sleep here tonight.
Parked next to me there’s the van what is someone who lives as I do and travels. Francois Labonte is a French Canadian and has been down here for a time.
His van is much nicer. You can actually stand up on the inside and this is laid out very nicely. His is something for me to aim for in the future.
As you might know, Tina and I traveled together for a time. She could actually stand up in the back of my van; I was jealous. Not that she was a shorty, but, she was shorter.
We hit it off well and both think alike about the current situation in the world.
Labonte purchased a copy of my book, “Accident”. Along with being inspired, he says he wants to use the book to work on his English; he is mainly a French speaker.
Strange, all day my body has been hurting, aching. From down deep out to the skin, it feels weird. I’m hurting. I took a couple of aspirin, pain pills, they don’t seem to be working. What to do? What to do?
It’s only 7:10 pm and I don’t feel like doing anything. I’m just laying here, I guess, waiting for sleep to take over. I do hope I feel better tomorrow, I hope you do, too.
4/3—This day is special for me, on this day back in 1982 I was hit by a truck went into a coma for 37 days. A big part of my life, a big life change. Did you see >>
I woke up today with my whole body in pain. I’ve not had anything like this before, not sure what it could be. My mind functions well, all my body is in pain, though. Along with that, I have a tremendous headache. I took a couple pain pills earlier, they didn’t seem to help.
When I go through times like this, and otherwise, I think to myself, “Is there anything really left to live for? Am I adding to people’s lives? With is in my future?” Bad thoughts floating through my brain.
Perhaps I came North too soon? Last night was quite cold. I had to get the sleepie bag down and even had a blanket over that, my feet were so cold. But, I’m not going to go back up again, heading over toward Texas.
2:42 in the afternoon now. The pain I’m experiencing is tremendous. My whole body hurts. Makes me want to go to check into a hospital and get fixed. I can’t do much except for drive or stay in my van, awful.
Right now I feel like I’m dying. What I have is so strange. The massive headache continues, have no hunger at all, I won’t be eating anything tonight. The library where I pulled off will be relatively quiet and safe for me.
Why do I have any concerns about a Covid shot when I don’t even care if I live or die?
Right now it’s 5:31pm and have concerns about sleep tonight. It will be very quiet here, but with the sickness I have I don’t know how sleep will come. Kind of a scary feeling holding over my head.
I just talked with my daughter, Jasmine. She went through the same symptoms as me and was diagnosed as she had Covid. She simply said to spend a few days isolated, which I can do. I’m at the library now that is closed tomorrow, Sunday. I will stay around here for at least a few days.
Jasmine also offered to pay for a motel room to stay in for a few days. I let her know that the library I was at now is closed tomorrow, Sunday. I was just planning to stay around here for at least a few days staying away from people.
4/4—Today I feel much much better. Thanks again to Jasmine for the encouragement.
4/5—I’ve not been writing anything the last few days because nothing really happened. Continue going north, had to find another Best Buy for my computer.
I think I had the computer plugged into a bad outlet, it won’t take any charge when I plug it in. I can’t believe how much I am on my computer. I depend on it so much now to write the blog to write to friends I’m so forth.
For the night, I found a hidden away park where I’ll bed down for the night. There are a number of families here now, nice to hear the kids playing. They will be home soon and I will be here alone.
I hope the cops don’t come down and check first place. I’m thinking they won’t, I’ll let you know.
9pm. My dream of sleeping in that nice park with silence and no people and no cars were just destroyed. Someone from The Parks Department stopped by and let me know I could not park there overnight. I found a place, not as dark, hear some traffic, looks like I’ll be here for the night. And, I hope you have a good sleep tonight.
4/6—Today I returned to Ocala National Forest, South Springs Recreation area.
Such a fabulous place.
I love it here.
Take a look >>
On one side of the camp, you have a choice of campsites that are all fairly nice. My favorite is spot 160, quite secluded it is. But that one was already taken with the next three nights.
Then on the other side, you have the natural warm springs. This is warm water that comes up from down below. So it is naturally clean and wonderful. I will be going into the springs tomorrow.
4/7—Where I was camped, a family moved in next door with four teen-aged boys. I had that big fire last night, then today I went around and gathered more firewood. I had gathered quite a pile.
I saw that the boys did not have wood for a fire tonight, so I gave them all that I had. That seemed to make them rather happy.
4/8—Today I purchased a computer. Mine is not working all the time right, and I worry about getting the blog off to you on time. About five hundred bucks for the doohickey, hope I write some good words with it to send to you.
I’m lonely out here, I would love to hear from you.
