Here is the video transcript:
I made a video about why I live in an RV and my story and what brought me to this place. And it really resonated with a lot of people. Maybe you, I didn’t really understand the impact that it would have when I made that video. So I wanted to tell you why living in an RV, especially solo RV living and solo female RV living has brought me healing. I say that in the fact that if you don’t know my story, I’ll put a link to that below this video. But if you do know my story, you know, that I live in an RV for several, but one of the reasons is that my boyfriend of eight years aint put a ring on this finger. And there’s a lot of things that have transpired in our relationship that have probably led me and him to where he’s at and where I’m at in this place.
But I made a really bad decision. And I personally think it was a bad decision. I’m not gonna say it’s a bad decision for everyone in every circumstance. But I personally feel that the decision that I made was a bad decision. And if you don’t know my story, like I said, I can’t believe I shared the last video. So I really can’t believe I’m sharing this video, but I guess, I just get scared of who’s gonna watch this and this shirt, I was gonna change my shirt, but it actually just seems so perfect. It says not perfect, just forgiven. I had an abortion and it still hurts me to tell you this. And I still tear up telling you this, but I just feel like someone is watching this video and you need to hear this. I tried really hard not to cry during this.
I have been through so much in my RV life and I had no idea why God had led me on this journey. And I feel like I’m the one in this whole thing that had to heal through this whole journey. And I love the fact that, you know, he has supported me in this, but I also know that there are a lot of women out there maybe you, that can relate to the fact that it wasn’t a decision that I wanted to make. I it’s like haunted me. Okay. It’s haunted me. But the reason that I decided, decided to live in my RV was because it helped me heal going on these trips and going on this journey and traveling with my dogs. And then, you know, I even lost my dogs, but there’s just so much that’s happened that it helped me discover who I am. I didn’t know who I was when I started out on this journey. I was
Brandi. Okay. And I was bloggin Brandi. And you know, the reason I even am called bloggin Brandi, if you don’t know, that is because my boyfriend actually used to make fun of me. And he used to say, what are you gonna blog? So, you know, I, I’m sharing this about my own personal relationship with you because one, my boyfriend and has been super supportive in allowing that. And I feel like he doesn’t feel ashamed in the decision probably at all. But I think he feels ashamed of the fact that I feel ashamed. He’s, he’s tried to do all the things, I guess, that he could to help me heal in, in the way that he could. But, you know, I’ve watched him go through his process and I just think I’ve about how I was so concerned about us and our relationship and men all the time, growing up, I used to make all these decisions for men.
So going on this RV journey has given me confidence and it’s helped me figure out who I am and it’s helped me figure out what I want to do with my life, and it helped me create my current business. If it wasn’t for me starting RV life, I never would have started RVersity. So I help people get into RV life and learn this whole process. And I didn’t know that that was what I was gonna do. I, I quit my job and I thought that I was gonna start this business. I did start several businesses. I wrote a book and I started an app and I sold products online of like physical products. And I’ve flipped items from Goodwill. And I’ve done so many things that have helped generate income. But the one thing that really brings me joy is teaching people how to get to RV life.
So I actually kind of feel like I don’t belong in this world. Like the rest of the world. I feel when I started RV, I found my peeps. Okay. But me and my boyfriend still kind of have this little separation between us like this wall, because it’s almost like he’s still fights that urge to go back to the other side. And I’m always fighting to go back to RV life. So anytime I’m not in my RV, I really wanna be in my RV. And so I feel that someone is watching this and you are thinking, I wish that I could get started RV, or maybe you are RV. And as a female or solo period, I know that I didn’t know where this was all going to go. When I began my journey and I had no idea what was gonna happen with it, I start, okay.
So I started rving and I thought that, you know, my boyfriend will come eventually. And he had, he has come along, but I don’t want you to get started RVing or not get started rving because you think that someone’s gonna follow you along, or because they’re not gonna follow you along. Because to be honest, I’ve been in this RV for like five years or RV living for five years. Cause I had my trailer and then I had two vans and then I had this motor home, but I feel like I’ve been forced to live in the RV. You know, I wish that we could start our life and everything. But I honestly feel like this mistake that I made or the decision that I made has kept things the way that they are, or it’s kept us from solidifying the relationship. I started RVing and I started and I ended up starting rversity because of my tragedy and my life circumstances and my situation.
So, you know, once I got pregnant and once I decided to terminate my pregnancy, it led me to a journey. I could not have even imagined and meeting people that I couldn’t have imagined and having a support system. I know a lot of people think like you wanna get out there and you want to RV and maybe you wanna share your journey. Or maybe you’re scared to share your journey. Maybe you just want to RV. Maybe you just wanna heal. You don’t want anybody to see you. I know it. It’s kind of funny. I see some people and they, they follow me and I never get to see their faces, but they comment to me and they talk to me, but I have no idea what they look like. Sometimes I see your photos, but you don’t ever have your face in them. I just felt like somebody needed to hear this.
And I do want you to know that there is someone out there that can relate to you. And I wouldn’t be sitting here right now, making this video, had it not been for me, living in an RV. If I had not quit my job, which I made a video about last week or a couple weeks ago, depending on when you’re watching this, I would not have been living in my RV this past Friday, marked seven years that I quit my job and quitting. My job led me to starting my business and following my dreams. And that is what led me into RV life. There was that whole set of circumstances. And like I said, you can watch my whole story to see everything that’s kind of transpired, but I’m just feeling like this urge that somebody’s watching this and that. I really don’t talk about my story a lot, or I had a really extended version of it.
And maybe you never got to that part of it, but we all have things that we’ve gone through and I’ve in through way more than just my abortion, way more. I’m not proud of the decision that I made. I regret it. I would tell anyone that’s thinking about it to absolutely, you know, not do it, but that’s my personal view. And I know that everybody has their own reasons for doing it, but I just want you to know that God loves you and I love you. And someone is out there that can relate to you. And I have been, I don’t wanna say I’ve been healed. I mean, I am healed, but I still have my moments. I still cry. You see, I cry when I tell you about it, but I don’t think that’ll ever go away. I really don’t think it is ever gonna go away.
I’m gonna put a link to RVersity. So you can book a call with me and we can chat about your RV dreams and what you’re thinking about.
