The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Son of A “Bad Word”

Boy! Did that make me laugh!!

A couple weeks ago, it seemed no matter what I was listening too, whether it was on the radio, or on TV, I would hear the phrase, “son of a bad word”; I literally laughed out loud!

I thought to myself, finally a way of expressing ourselves without offending someone! It still packs a punch if you need to “get it out”, but at the same time shows class and respect to those around you, who may be easily offended.

I also thought to myself, “guess someone has run out of swear words”; regardless I thought it was great!

We have all been there, where we needed to let a good ol’ swear come flying out of our mouths! We are all guilty of letting one slip! I will be honest, I am guilty of having let a good one rip, every now and then; part of being human!

The more I thought about it, the more I thought how by saying, “son of a bad word”, would actually smooth things over between two parties, if someone was actually calling someone else the alternate (SOB).

Picture it: Two individuals are not so happy with each other, and then one of them says, “boy, you are such a son of a bad word!” Can you just see the look on the other person’s face? Kind of like a dog who looks confused! 😂😂😂 They would probably forget, at that very moment, what they were arguing about!

The next time you feel the need to let someone have it, with not so nice words, give it a try! I bet before you know it, you both will be laughing and forgetting why your argument even warranted anger with bad words.

Just a thought, and certainly worth a try!

New World, New Way of Thinking, New Perspective!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – This Mama Dances! What Music Are You Listening Too?

In our household, we always have music on during the day; to be honest, lately, it has helped to pass the time with being at home full-time. Music has been our distraction, our stress reliever, and our exercise. We DANCE!!

When I wake up every morning, I can’t wait to put the music on! Generally, I start with some soothing Reiki music to start my morning off, while I am catching up on messages and having my first coffee. Breaks me in too the day, in a calming way.

Then it happens! I put on a little Good Vibes or Reggae and let the beat get a hold of my soul! In fact, as I’m typing this post, I am listening to Reggae Classics on Spotify; what a great selection of music.

Every single day, the music will differ; as we can’t forget the good old 80’s hair bands and their rock music. Now, I put on AC/DC, Queen, Poison, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith when I’m writing Fiction!

During all of this, I will dance and enjoy! I let the music help me to escape into a World where I’ve never been; it could be a World I will write about, but it is a World of pure bliss. I take my bliss and I will dance into the kitchen to cook dinner, I will take my bliss and sway back and forth while making my bed, and I will take my bliss and let all my creativity out!

It is like painting on a canvas for me, without the paint or the canvas. I feel the strokes of the paint brush touching the canvas in the beat of the music. I know I sound like a Free Spirit Hippie; I guess my true self comes out through music.

My question to you is this:

What music are you listening too? What music brings you to this blissful place? What song “can’t” you get out of your head? What music makes you dance?

We need to share 😀😀 we may be helping someone find the harmony in music and dance!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – You Look Perfect

Wow…what a different World we live in!  We were living a normal life, then in a blink of an eye, we were living in isolation.  During this time, boy did most of us change.  Some went from wearing make-up to going “oh natural”, from dying our hair to letting the roots come on in, from getting dressed up every morning to wearing pj’s all day long and from getting used to going to the gym to (YIPES!) becoming a couch potato!

Through it all, “you all looked perfect!”  The true you came shining through!  Our personal canvas, our outer shell, was there in its vulnerable state; it was embraced.  At that very moment, we all realized we were “all” in this together and we were all experiencing being raw.  Vanity didn’t matter so much anymore.

Isn’t it amazing, when we really understand that we are all the same; how we look at ourselves in a different light.

Now, we are adding masks to our wardrobe.  Some are buying all the latest trends in masks – who would have thought?  Guess what?  You Look Perfect!

Wearing masks are now allowing us to all look at each other through the eyes.  The eyes into the soul!  Where we should have been looking from the start!  It isn’t about vanity; it is about seeing the soul in someone’s eyes.  Let the eyes speak to you!  You will see who you are meant to see.

Just remember, “You Look Perfect!”

With Good Vibes only – You Are Perfect!

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We All Need Excitement In Our Lives

More now than ever, we need to find some excitement in our lives!  I have a bit of a plan😉😉

I will start by letting you know, I have no problem diving into childlike thinking at times;  remembering my youth!  Not so much who I was at a young age, but instead all the hopes and dreams I had as a child.  If you want to take a moment to smile, then please start thinking of all those dreams you had as a child.

As I start thinking back to my mind as a child and who I wanted to be, where I wanted to live, what I wanted to do when I “grew up”, and how I was going to do all of this, I also start thinking about all the kids I went to elementary school with and then it all comes back; I remember their dreams too ❤ you may even want to start reaching out to those friends you had and striking up a new friendship.

How exciting it was as a child, to have such big hopes and dreams!  The thrill and happiness it brought to my face, at just the thought of actually achieving those dreams.

It then dawned on me, why can’t I achieve those dreams now?  Oh My Gosh!!  I was feeling excited at just the thought!  I couldn’t wait to get started!

In that one thought, I created “added” excitement in my life!  I was like a scientist rubbing her hands together over her experiment at the possibility she could have come up with the latest cure!

The passion I had as a young girl for my dreams, was like no other; the excitement I felt as a child for my dreams, came back to me.

I really gave myself something more to look forward too!

If you are finding yourself bored with being at home, having already watched all of Netflix, and not sure what to do next, then I would recommend you sit down, grab a pen and paper and write down all your childhood dreams!  You will start to laugh, you may even start to cry, but at the end of the day, you will have found the excitement was back in your heart as you had as a little child.

I believe that is a gift you can give yourself!  You gave yourself the gift of excitement in your life and it didn’t cost you anything and you didn’t have to leave your home to find it.  Harness the dreams of a child, start researching them online, and you just never know, maybe you will be able to accomplish one of them!  Where there is a will there is always a way!

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!!
