Warning.... Pity Party in Progress!!

Have you ever noticed how there are some people in the world that seem to delight on another persons misfortune.  They make themselves feel better by belittling or putting down someone else.  They seem to suck the air and energy out of the room just by entering.  I have a confession to make..... I let just such a person turn my world upside down. I have spent the last 5 days fussing and fuming and as a result of the actions of another person.  My blood pressure is sky high.... I have a horrid head ache.

In my last post I said that I have gotten to a place in my life that I don't need anyone else to agree with me or validate my decisions.  I guess I the universe felt a need to smack me one and not so gently point out the error of my thinking.

Disagree with my thinking,  Disagree with my actions. Talk with me and maybe we will both learn something. But please don't discredit me or what I have dedicated my entire adult life too.

Yep, I gave my power away to someone else.
I'm taking back my power..... so there!

Thanks for listening and letting me vent....I have work to do, places to go!


  1. That doesn't sound like any fun. Glad you are taking your power back and I'm sorry someone was nasty to you.

  2. :) that was just a little rant, not a FULL blown one.. Read your last blog too.. don't let others get you down... You CAN RV by yourself. it is ALL learnable..if i can do it, so can you. U learn from your errors and just go on. Everyone was most kind. I left the road due to familial obligations. But am still trying to figure out a way to get back. BUT it was lonely for me... and that is just me. there r others out there that do really well..and i could be more out going and not so poor, pitiful me :)
    Take Care & you go girl!!!

  3. Thanks.... Everyone needs a cheerleader now and then.... where do I send the pom poms?

  4. Sometimes it's so difficult to believe in yourself and pursue your dreams. (Trust me, I'm the "poster child!") Get up, brush off the negative energy, and "keep on keeping on!"

  5. It's hard when you feel wronged, but even harder when you feel like there's no recourse to it. But there always is - you can decide to forget it, which isn't all that easy, I realize, but time will help.

    Just fling it. :)

  6. so sorry you are having a bad time. Sounds like it might be something to do with something other than camping? You mentioned your life's worker issues? I will give you a call later and we can catch up. The last week or so hasn't been great for me but thanks to you I am letting it roll off my back and not freaking out! What color pom poms do you want?

  7. You've had a doozy of a time this past week! So sorry you had someone push your buttons. I sympathize. It is hard to keep those toxic people from getting to you. It sounds like you were able to get back on track, so good for you.
    By the way, my mom had a friend who travels all over the country by herself in her little Bambi Airstream. She's been doing it for at least 20 years and is now in her mid eighties. So it is possible to have a fine life. It seems that nothing you are doing prevents you from settling in one spot if you decide to do that later. You take care.

  8. Sorry for such a frustration week. I second all the above. I have often found people who can only tear down to be very unhappy people generally.
