Simply Endings and Beginings!

  2020 is Ending - whew what a year! and 2021 it's hard to believe that its about to turn the year into 2021!  Life has changed so much for us all. Now, mask wearing is what we all do, when a short year ago most of us hardly thought about face masks. Many of us have stopped listening to the commercial news as it once was, and have gotten off social media or curbed its influence in our lives tremendously. I have grown a lot this year - I let go of toxic and unhealthy things much quicker than I once did, I embrace my tendencies for a self sufficent lifestyle easier, I practice the old school skills that I have learned over the years and I decided that building infastructure on my rural off-grid property was vitally important. I became a volunteer member of the NomadChapter.org which has become a big online support for me and has given me purpose helping others. I let go of my expectation to be "perfect" - it never worked anyway! (grin)  I have liked transparency and now I s

Simply Freedom!

 Today I feel so free! Letting go sometimes is a challenge because how do we let go? AND what are we letting go of - a thought, a habit an item?  I recently let go of a thought and a habit that were one thing. You see years ago I had a difficult break up from a relationship with a musician. Following that relationship music was so emotionally loaded for me that I could be happy or sad or angry or confused at the drop of a hat. I could feel so many different emotions so quickly when I would hear music. In the last month I decided to endure a fellow rvers music a little longer than normal and to my surprise and amazement within less than 2 days I realized that music was no longer loaded for me and I now enjoy music again.  I feel so free today. Partially because I allowed myself to give up an item that I no longer was using. now I could have sold this item. And yet after I made the decision to let the item go I slept with the idea. A day or so later I realized that I had gotten my money&

Simply too much Caffine!

Darn it! Maybe I have had too much caffeine today - I just lost a whole hours worth of typing and blogging and …..grrr. So lets talk Simply Lesa Vehicles shall we! in 2011 I began my Nomadic life in the US with Vantucket - she wasn't called Vantucket just yet. She, also, didn't have a white roof yet. She did have 3 or 4 different builds while I was trying to figure out what "home" meant to me and while I was trying to remove a recurring trauma from re-entering my thoughts each night when I would lay down to sleep and I would look into the ceiling. You see, and this is all I will say about the trauma to protect everyone - or something, but when I returned from Central America to pick up my van, one of the parties involved in getting said van, thought that if I was going to live in the van, I should pay for being a "low life" and that I didn't, perhaps, qualify as a full on human being. They decided to keep me in a garage in that van and not visible t

Valentine's - Simply Love Me day!?

Image
Goodmorning Friends! I grew up in a home that kept different Holydays from the general population. Valentine's Day was just simply another day. As a child I viewed it as another day when I am set aside as differnt and reminded that I am not worth loving or even liking. I didn't get candy or cards and I wasn't allowed to give them to others. In public schools kids can be kind of crewl so I recall being openly critized and teased. As an adult, I have chosen to use the month of February as a reminder of the power of the LOVE energy that drives the physical world as we know it. During this month, I concentrate my Wednesday evening Self Care Routine on Self Love. I review my little notes in my Wellness box that remind me that I am important, that I matter and that I am beautiful. Today is Valentine's Day.  It's also the day that my Lumbar Puncture or Spinal Tap is scheduled. I have watched videos on You Tube explaining the proceedure and recovery and possible inc

Simply Right now

Here is what I have been going through since thanksgiving.  First I got the flu then my right side of my face drooped. Thought it was better for like two days but I have been so tired and my face keeps drooping and twitching. A couple weeks ago I called a nurse line and following the conversation was taken to the ER. I was checked for strokes then admitted for tests and observation.  An MRI showed tiny lesions on my brain which are not of concern,  it also showed two larger lesions that seem to indicate possible MS. I was released with an appointment for a second opinion. A couple days ago I had that appointment. I don't have anymore news which is frustrating.  I have more testing this week.  Now I am letting you all in on some pretty private information. Please be kind in your responses. I have a lot on my mind.  I have dizzy headaches all the time.  My balance is off. A 10 minute drive can exhaust me. The car wash made me feel nauseous and unsafe to drive  - so I hung out in a pa
