I’ve Nearly Bought Three Different Campers

June 25, 2022

I’ve nearly bought three different campers since March.

Hours and minutes away from handing over money three different times.

Yet, I still don’t own one.

So what does it mean when, for one reason or another, the plan hasn’t worked out?

When I’ve come so close so many times only to still be without what I really, truly want?

I’ll tell you…

It means that I’ve nearly bought three campers and, for one reason or another, it hasn’t worked out yet.

That’s it.

That’s all it means.

It doesn’t mean it’s not supposed to happen, and it’s not a sign from the universe. It doesn’t mean I’m incapable or unworthy and will never have what I want. It doesn’t mean I’m on the wrong path or my plan is flawed. It doesn’t mean anything unless I decide to tell a story about it.

The reality is…

I’ve learned a ton.

I’ve been majorly disappointed (first camper), immensely grateful (second camper), and relatively neutral (third camper).

I’ve clarified what’s important to me.

I’ve discovered the parameters I need to work inside of and where the plan needs to change altogether.

I’ve had a lot of fun.

And I’ve stayed (and continue to stay) open to the endless possibilities accessible to me as long as I remain anchored in my desire and vision and keep myself in motion.

I may not be where I want to be, but I’m certainly loving every step of the journey and all the incredible and unexpected life and relationship lessons they’ve contained.

The stories we tell about what happened are a choice, and 99% of the time, they’re not true.

They’re just fabrications rooted in our core wounds, fears, subconscious lens, and limiting beliefs. We can choose more productive stories to tell about the things we experience. Better yet, we can stop with stories and interpretations altogether and look at what happened as what happened with no meaning at all, refocusing on what we desire and what we need to do next to move forward.

The latter comes with so much peace and freedom and the power to create seemingly impossible things more rapidly.
