A Bit of Generosity

We all see cars broken down from time to time, but do we calm our lives for that moment and think about what we can do to be of service? I am sure you can say you have lent a helping hand at least once in your life. Do you do it enough? Is this service a vital part of your existence? Since we began our adventure almost a year ago, we shifted our focus from “us” as individuals to a focus on the world “around” us. By living a service-driven life, we are better people. And by being better people, we can make the world a better place

Occam’s Razor and Battery Maintenance

First, a disclaimer. I am not a mechanic. I have never been passionate about working on engines of any sort, nor vehicles of any kind at all.

You may think that life is stress free for us, and we do not have a care in the world. But just like you, we have bills to pay, a house to clean, doctor appointments, kid duties, our relationship to tend to, and so much more.

Adventures of the Golden Snail

Moving is no big deal, right? Um, no! There’s a lot that goes into a RV relocation. You have to lift the motorhome jacks, close the slides, retract the canopy, take down the flags, and you need to secure EVERYTHING inside the motorhome so you do not have a disaster to clean up once the move has been completed. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, that was not the case on MY moving day. I struggle with daily, ongoing, pervasive fatigue that is exacerbated by stress. Guess what? This was a very stressful feat. So, I had to get up especially early to give myself plenty of time to achieve all the duties and to take ample breaks in between each accomplishment.
