The Simple Life

Here at Real-Camping we’re good friends. Really good friends. That were brought together by camping, and we really do love it.

But what keeps us together is more than that...

Its our love of the simple life. To feel the grass under our bare feet, the sand between our toes and the sea on our bodies. To turn our faces to the sun as it rises over the horizon or sinks back down again. To reconnect with mother earth. To de-clutter our lives. To give ourselves more time...time to just be.

Its our desire to be free. To live each day as we choose. To have no ties forcing us to do one thing or another. To live where we want. To be who we want. To do what inspires us.

Its our need to be happy. To have that buzz you get in your heart that makes you smile for no particular reason. To belly-laugh often. To be content with who we are and where we are going.

There is more than one way to live life...and we plan to live it our way.

But sometimes these thoughts and beliefs we hold so strongly get clouded and drowned out by the white noise, the voices of the negative "what if" people.

The team at Real-Camping is each other’s support group. Reminding each other that this negativity is being laid on us through other people's fears. They aren't our fears. We know that what we are looking for will reveal itself if we keep looking for it and believing in it.

So we send each other motivation when we find it. We thought perhaps you might like to share in this little piece of love too, in this little corner of our blog.

Who Says Marilyn Monroe Was A Dumb Blonde?

She was pretty insightful if you ask me.

I came across this Marilyn Monroe quote the other day and I just loved it. It made me feel inspired and so I shared it with the gang and now I'm sharing it with you (our lovely blog followers)...
