The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Full Of Creativity

Along with all of you, I’ve taken the past 2 weeks to let everything sink in.  The shock of how quick life can change is slowly going away, but it has left me with a sense of wanting to take this time to grow and to share with you what I’ve learned so far.

Side note:  expect a lot of blog posts from me 😉

I’ve learned that creativity is more than just finding a hobby or project to do, but instead it is essential for mental health.  Finding something that brings a smile to your face is very important; we cannot fall into the trap of fear.

Yes, things are very real out there, but if we listen to what has been suggested to us in staying in our home, then we will be doing our part in ridding our World of this virus.  I feel it is a small sacrifice, in order to save our World.

Okay, so that’s all I want to say about the “v” word, it has temporarily taken over and I’m not going to allow it to do that, especially here on my blog!  So, here is some creative positive options for you, that I’m also going to harness:

Baking

Cooking something NEW!

Coloring

Painting

Crafting

Changing Old Clothing into something fun (costume)

Sewing

Reading

Journaling

Writing a Novel

Spring Clean

Clean out the closets

Go through family albums and create a memory book

Exercise

This list is just a list of suggestions; whatever you do, please make sure you do it in your home or in your own yard.

You can also make arrangements with a friend to do all the above with someone on-line.  It’s all about getting creative!  Create an appointment with friends or family to join you in a project!  Hey, great time to start a book club ❤❤

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Soul Brothers

I’d like to take a moment to dedicate this post to my husband and his Baseball Teams.

13 years ago, when our family moved to Sudbury, Ontario, where my husband is from, I was introduced to his love of baseball.  With this love for baseball, came the love for his Team.  I, myself, have played on many teams, and I understand the bond you make with your teammates.  To be honest, you are creating lifelong bonds with each other.  Created based on unconditional support for each other.

I refer to his teammates as my husband’s “soul brothers”.  For the most part, they have become more than just teammates; they are there supporting each others families as well.

For example, the other day, I received a beautiful message from one of my husband’s, “soul brothers”, complimenting me on my two books I’ve written, “In My Closet” and “Lost Soul Obsession”.  The compliment came, out of the blue, as he decided to sit down and read my books.  I wasn’t expecting this message; it warmed my heart and made me think about how important it is to embrace a Team.

I am grateful to be able to see my husband create such fantastic bonds with these men; these men have embraced not only my husband but our family, as well.

There is no other way to express the type of bonds these men have created, other than, “soul brothers”.

When you find, friends in your life who are there for you no matter what, you hang on to them.  Each life will have their own ups and downs, but it is the unconditional support you have created with each other, that will not only help each other through the challenging times, but will extend to help each others families.

Again, I am so grateful to be able to witness such friendships!

If your significant other has a team they belong too, there is nothing wrong with embracing them as well.  You will find comfort, lots of laughter, and support in doing so!

Teammates + Teamwork = A Quality of Life!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Baseball Player’s Wife

My husband, the sports guru, is a baseball player.  He plays slow-pitch, softball, fastball, and well, you get the picture 😊

As I am a baseball player’s wife, I will admit, life changes from May until the end of October.  Dinner is no longer at a set time; it could range from 3:30 pm to 9:30 pm or it could simply just happen in the car on the way to the game!  He doesn’t just play for one team; there are many!

Most wives, would get a bit upset at the fact, their husbands would be gone pretty much every evening and sometimes on weekends depending on if he had a tournament or not, but the way I’ve looked at it, is he is living his dream.  There is more too it than just playing a sport; it is about teamwork, chemistry, brotherhood, and families.

Yes Families!

Every team my husband has been on, has become one big Family!  I’m not going to deny the fact, during baseball season, life does revolve around game times, tournaments, playoffs, etc., but it is by being “a part of it”, makes it better.  For some women, it can be difficult to “want” to be a part of something you are not interested in, or they may find boring, but if you were to look outside the box and see the bigger picture, it is more about coming together in relationships, coming together in supporting the Team, and coming together as family.  Bonds are made, not just for the players, but for their families.

Our baseball season will be here before we know it, and I’d just like to say, I am grateful for the happiness it brings to my husband, as well as to our family.
