The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Don’t Grow Up! It’s A Trap!

Who says we have to buy into age?  What is the true meaning behind, “just act your age”; really what does that look like?  Yes, growing up blesses you with wisdom, but with wisdom wouldn’t you think it should make you feel happy, young, and content?  Knowing you are learning as you go, should bring on a childlike attitude, as you have obviously conquered something and gained from it!

A feeling of relief; you made it through another one of life’s challenges and gained so much from it!  When this happens to me, the feeling of jumping up and down and doing cartwheels comes over me with gratitude!  This may seem immature to some, but to me it is like a rebirth!

I’ve learned over time, that it is okay to feel young even if you are getting older in a number.  I don’t look at growing older as an age; it is truly just a number.  A number of years you are experiencing more wisdom.  Just like in a job interview, when the recruiter is asking you, “how many years experience do you have?”  They don’t ask, “how old were you when you did this, how old were you when you did that?”  Really?  What does it matter?  It is just about a number!  Another way of looking at it, Legends in Sports are always referred to as their number!  Their number gets retired, not their age!

I also refuse to “grow up”, in a stereotypical way.  I have embraced the fact, I will constantly learn something every single day, no matter what number I’m at in my life.  I will not fall into the trap; I want to enjoy every single day learning and welcoming the gifts of life, without the pressure of sticking to this concept of having to know it all by a certain age.

Don’t grow up, it is a trap!  Erase this concept from your mind of knowing it all; instead enjoy your path, enjoy the adventure, and enjoy each day!  No pressure!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Lesson Learned!

I learned a very valuable lesson not to long ago; never sway from your passions!  My passions in life are based on living a peaceful life, while helping others achieve a sense of peace as well.  Whether a sense of peace is found in my blog and social media posts, from the books I have written or from the gift I have as a Reiki Master, my passion in life is to help others find an avenue to bring inspiration and positive choices into their lives.

We all go through tests in our lives; some are there to help us along the right path, but then there are tests to make sure we do not sway from our passionate path in life.

I also believe in sharing my truths, as I believe if I can help just one person a day, then I’m doing what I have set out to do in my life.

Over the years, I’ve been tested in many areas of my life.  One thing I’ve learned is that these tests, if you let them move in and take up residence in your brain, are only there to create havoc and chaos, which then creates a wrath of anxiety.  Every single time, one of these tests show up, I will admit, they check into my brain for a brief moment, but then after reflecting on what is important in my life (my passions), it leaves with a sense of release.  It almost feels as though my Crown Chakra opens up and lets all the havoc and chaos particles float on up and out of my body.

I know that sounds deep, but it is the only way I can explain it.  There were tests I’ve gone through where I’ve kept everything to myself.  Not the best thing for me to do, but like I say, “I am human”.  I’ve felt the signs of negativity these tests have brought to me, so I have learned to cry through them.  A great release for me at times!  I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, “there is nothing wrong with crying”.

This was an awakening for me!  I needed to stay true to my passions within me!  Although, these tests were job opportunities which I was approached with, they just truly weren’t for me.  I had considered them, as I thought it would be an opportunity to again help, but something was telling me it just wasn’t the right thing for me to do.  Intuition at its finest I suppose; I was listening to my gut feeling and staying true to my passions.

My passions pull at my heart!  They are mine!  They fuel me every single day!  They bring me joy!  They bring me peace!

I only hope you all can do the same!  Stay true to who you are and what brings you a sense of passion in your lives!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love You!

Love – the best 4 letter word you can say!

The word “Love” does not always mean “to fall in love with someone”, but instead I believe Love should start with “falling in love with yourself” first.

You can love so many people, animals, places, food, things, information, and the World itself, but not many people will say, “I love myself” first when asked the question, “what is it that you love?  Who do you love?”

In starting this new year, I decided to start my day off with Affirmations!  You know, the “I Am” process which everyone should do.  That’s just my opinion 😊 I found in starting my day off in a positive way before my feet even hit the floor in the morning, I was loving myself more and more.  I was loving myself from the “inside” which then made my love for the “outside” of myself better.

We are all guilty of being our worst critics, but what about being are greatest supporters?  By supporting yourself and finding the positive in yourself, you in turn starting loving yourself more and more every single day!

I feel it is so very important to Love Yourself!  With so much negativity in the World (which I might add, could all be solved with a good old fashioned “love thy neighbor” workshop), we need to focus on Love.  When you love yourself, you smile more.  When you love yourself, you are more kind to others. When you love yourself, you have a sense of Peace.

There is so much to be grateful for in your life; start by being grateful for yourself!  Start by loving who you are, your thoughts, your dreams, your kindness towards others, and your compassion!  These are just a few areas of your life you can start with, then each day, add one or two more characteristics about yourself that you should and could love.

Share your love for yourself; love is contagious and should be shared!

With Good Vibes Only – Love You!

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Rest Of My Life, Will Be The Best Of My Life!

Whenever I found myself in a bit of a funk, I would always remind myself, “The Rest Of My Life, Will Be The Best Of My Life!”

We all experience challenges in our lives, but with this mantra, “the rest of my life, will be the best of my life”, I started to handle those challenges a lot better.  I have found, creative visualization and mantras are essential in our lives.

For the past two years, I have really kicked my mantra into high gear!  In doing so, the challenges I have faced in that time, are handled a lot better.  Seriously, the challenges I have been through, would literally curl someone’s hair (LOL)!  Just like getting struck by lightning!  However, I’ll have to save those for another blog post!

The rest of my life, will be the best of my life, has allowed me to relax more, feel more at peace, and enjoy each day with a smile!  I wish I would have adapted this mindset a very long time ago, but I needed more life experiences to help me to figure it all out.  One thing we cannot do is to push things along when we are not ready.  In time, the bulb will come on, but in the meantime, remember, “The Rest Of Your Life, Will Be The Best Of Your Life!”

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – 50 and Fabulous!

Turning 50 last year was life changing in such a positive way!  50 is Fabulous!

Here is a little timeline I’d like to share with you!

When I graduated from high school at 18 years old, I had a “moment”; it was time to think about what I wanted to do.

When I turned 20 I was married to my first husband.

When I turned 23 I gave birth to my daughter and 5 weeks later found myself sitting in the lawyer’s office writing up a Separation Agreement between my now ex-husband and myself.  At that time, I had another “moment” on where I wanted my life to go.

When I turned 30, I was living life as a single mother and had another “moment”; this moment was a bit more shocking, as I felt I was 30 years old and I “needed” to make something out of myself.  Oh my, the first experience with panic and anxiety!  Yipes!  I put so much pressure on myself and felt I needed to be in a rush to figure everything out about Life!

When I was 34 – 38, I found myself caring for both my parents with Cancer; with the loss of my parents, this gave me the “moment” of just how precious life truly is, and how it does come full circle – to also enjoy each day!

When I turned 38, I met and married my husband; the only thing I wished for at that time was how I wished I would have met my new husband earlier.  We have been going strong for 13 years!

When I turned 40, I had the first best “moment” – I no longer sweat the small stuff.  Life seemed to be more calmer, my reactions were based on the positive rather than stressing over such little things.  I loved my 40’s!

When 50 was just around the corner, I will admit, I thought to myself, “OMG!  This can’t be right!”

Then it happened!  I turned 50!  What a fabulous feeling!  I had my “moment” of clarity; I was going to make the best out of every single day and nothing was going to change my mindset!  My life became my dream!  Everything I wanted to do for myself, was staring right at me!  I went for it!  I love being 50 years old!  I have the wisdom which is needed for this time in my life; I have gratitude, I have everything in my mind, heart, and soul, that I was wishing for 30 years ago, but now I know “why” I needed to wait to receive this wisdom!

50 is Fabulous!  50 is Fabulous with your life experiences!  50 is Fabulous and is only a number – to be honest, I feel 29 years old with 21 years experience!!

With Good Vibes Only – 50 and Fabulous!!
