The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Sharing Memories

In moving into our home, we made a point of going through absolutely, every single bin and box of memories!

In doing so, we found over 100 years of memories!  We found pictures of people we didn’t even know, but we knew we were related too!  We saw resemblances and characteristics in our family photos, which helped us to see and appreciate where we came from.  We always knew these photos existed, but never took the time to truly look deep into these faces.

We began to get to know our ancestry and history more; our roots were beginning to show.

Some pictures brought tears, some brought laughter, and for the most part, these pictures brought big smiles.  Our home became warmer with love and appreciation.  I will admit, this is the first home we have lived in where all of us have felt completely at home.  I’d like to think, by going through all our memories, has contributed to this warm feeling.

In a way, it feels like we are now surrounded by those we have loved and lost; where there was a void, there is now comfort.

Sharing memories in these photos has allowed us to not only feel comfort, but to also start more conversations between us.  We put our phones down and actually talk more about our memories.

We even found my old report cards, that clearly stated, “I needed to start paying more attention in class and to stop socializing so much!”  LOL!!  Little did I know, my social skills would contribute to my blog one day 😉

We have received a cherished gift in going through these pictures!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Bringing Family Together

Good Afternoon!

I know it’s been a while since I have shared with you any updates; I thought I would start with this one!  Bringing Family Together!

Over the summer, we were test driving our ambition in living in an RV full-time; it was a great experience.  It brought family and friends to our campsite to enjoy each others company.  Relations strengthened and it was a true blessing!

Since, we decided that we would save our RV for recreation for the next 5 years, instead of taking it on the road full-time.  We still have some wisdom to gain in this process, which we have no regrets in admitting.

We have moved into our home, where we have also started having family Sunday dinners again.  Bringing family together once a week, has been the best thing we started to do again.  Our family and friend relationships have grown and strengthened; it has been such a positive experience.

As I was thinking of this blog post, I was thinking of family members who may not see eye-to-eye and hence a wall goes up.  How easy would it be to simply put your differences aside and invite that family member over to share a meal with you.  You do not need to even talk about your differences, but simply share a meal with each other.  Meals are prepared with love and care; the same ingredients which go into relationships of all kinds.  A meal warms the heart!

After sharing a meal, you then feel a sense of satisfaction and comfort, and guess what?  You are enjoying this meal and feeling this way in the comfort of someone you didn’t see eye-to-eye with.  Changes the mood, and makes you think.  Sometimes, we get so upset at the small things, that we don’t take time to think that those small things that have upset us, are really not worth putting a wall between you and this person.  Share that meal!

As a family, we have found ourselves bonding even more with each other, by showing the love in a meal and sharing it with each other.  Please give this suggestion a little try, before you know it, no conversation is needed, there will just be a simple, “I’m sorry” where needed and the healing will begin.  A very simple approach, sometimes is all that is needed.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – All I Want To Do Is Dance! The Best Exercise!

Over the weekend, I turned 29 “yet” again!  My husband and our daughter, surprised me by inviting my sister-in-law and my niece out to our camp for a BBQ!  I was so happy to see them, as it had been a while!

One thing about our family, we love to sit around the kitchen table and talk!  My sister-in-law has done extremely well on her weight loss journey, and in doing so, she found “dance” to be the best exercise for her!  I agreed!  If there is one form of exercise to do, I love to dance.

You can use absolutely, every muscle, you can move in any direction you want to, and doing all of this with a smile on your face!

When thinking about exercise, you think of lifting weights, using the treadmill, and other pieces of equipment, but when you think about it, although they are very good for you, you never seem to see anyone smiling while they are doing this.  Keep in mind, I’m not degrading this form of exercise, as I do believe in it, but I also feel it is important to incorporate a form of exercise that brings a smile to your face.

When talking to my sister-in-law, she started to smile from ear to ear when she spoke about how she dances for exercise!  Feel free to dance in your kitchen, or anywhere around the house!  Try it out!  You will feel free!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love Is Love!

I never understood, why there is so much focus on “who” we fall in love with; as long as there is love, that’s all that should matter!

I’m not going to dive into the “religious” or “political” themes associated with this topic, but I will say this, “love thy neighbor” did not have any “except for…” attached to it!

I’m a firm believer in “live and let live”, as growing up, I never heard any “except for…” attached to that either!

In other words, as long as there is love, this is all that should matter!  Love yourself, love the person who warms your heart, love your friends, and simply love everyone who brings joy to your World!

Love should not be judged!  Regardless who we fall in love with; to be able to love is something we all strive for in our lives!  Let your heart tell you who you love; after all, love is not a crime, so don’t let others judge you for loving!

Love, love, and love some more!  Love With Your Heart and Soul!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Wonder How They Are Doing

How many times have you said to yourself, “I wonder how they are doing?”

What is stopping you from reaching out?  Did you end a friendship on a bad note?  Time heals!  If you are wondering how someone is doing, then pick up the phone!  Yes it is still nice to hear a voice!  Set aside the worry of whether or not your call would be accepted; make it and mend something that had possibly been broken.  Be the person who reaches out to let a person know they are thought of!  That is the Gift!

If they are in your mind, then they are in your heart!  Whether the relationship is good or bad, pick up that phone and let them know how important they are to you!  We need more of this in the World!  Take the time to reach out!

I also know at times, we wonder how our loved ones are doing, who have passed away!  It is nice to believe their spirits are still with us, so why not sit down and write a letter to them?  There is absolutely nothing wrong with writing a letter to someone we have lost; after all  some of the best music is written this way!  This is the best way to heal; you can say everything you need to say to your loved one.  You will receive the gift of their answer in life.  Believe me, when writing to a loved one who has passed away, you will start feeling comforted.  That is the real gift you will receive by getting your thoughts out on paper.

Regardless, if you are wondering how someone is doing, then reach out!  They may need you more than you know.  💖

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Our Camp!

Gratitude!  Swimming around in my heart!

This weekend, we will be setting up our trailer at a local camp/RV site.  In preparing for our goal of The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour, we feel it is important to spend the first season, set up locally, to get organized!  When we think of the full-time RV lifestyle, it is a big step, but one we are ready for!

Turning an RV/Trailer into your home, certainly takes a lot of thought, which I am finding out!  I am enjoying the process, wrapping myself up in the creativity of it all, and I am learning!

They say, “everything happens for a reason”, and this is what needs to happen in our lives!  Our passion for travel, seeing as much of the country as possible, and meeting others to share Good Vibes with, are all on the top of our lists!

We will be blogging, writing our new books, and working our virtual business from the trailer!  I’m visualizing our trailer filled with so much creative energy and motivation; I can’t help to want to jump up and down with excitement!  To be childlike is AWESOME!

I feel energized and excited, with a new youthful feeling, just thinking about this new venture!

It is thanks to following a lot of you who are already living this lifestyle; you have inspired not only me, but countless others!  💖 Much Gratitude!!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Company is Coming

A couple of years ago, I decided to have special “Sunday Dinners” for our family;  every Sunday we would focus on a different country.

Not only would we cook food from this country, but we would have the music playing and later watch a movie from this country or based on this country.

For example, when it was Italian Night, I cooked Italian Wedding Soup, made Tortellini Alfredo, and we had Tiramisu for dessert. You could hear “Italian Love Songs” by Dean Martin playing, as well, we watched Under The Tuscan Sun!  We became creative with Sunday Dinner.

I decided we, as a family, needed to introduce some culture into Sunday Dinners; our kids, who are in their 20’s, looked forward to these dinners, and would actually ask all week, “what country are we celebrating this Sunday?”

Sunday dinners became a “celebration!”

Life gets busy, and we would miss the odd Sunday, but I would love to start getting back on track with our Sunday Country Celebrations!  They were a lot of fun and this also allowed us to connect more.  In a way, it was an escape to enjoy Gifts from another Country without physically being there.

I would like to think, if everyone were to venture into Celebrating Countries with their families during a dinner, then we would have more of an understanding for them, which then brings on more appreciation!

Just a thought!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – When The Time Is Right!

When the time is right, it will present itself!

I used to think, if I pushed and pushed, then I could force, “when the time is right!”  Not the case!  When the time is right, you will see the signs!  You will feel it in your heart, you will literally see signs (could be on TV, could be in a conversation, or even from a complete stranger), and your soul will be speaking to you!  This is when you need to listen!

With regards to seeing the signs, for example, if you are wanting a new career, you will see the following:

  1. You could pick up a magazine and start reading and then POOF – there is an ad staring right at you with regards to the new career you would like.  Perhaps it is an ad for a “free” on-line course that you could apply to pursuing your new career.
  2. You could be driving down the highway and see a billboard with your dream career plastered all over it!
  3. You could turn on a TV show or documentary and there it is again!  Your dream job!

The signs are endless; it is when these signs start showing up, we need to start paying more attention.

We started doing this in our lives; lately those signs won’t stop showing up, which is fine by me!  This just tells me what we are planning, is the path we are meant to be on!

I’m glad I stopped forcing what wasn’t meant to happen at the time; it is when I let things happen when they were meant to happen is when things came to me faster.

When the time is right, it will happen!  You just need to be patient and pay attention to all the greatness around you.  Look outside the box, stay open to those signs presenting themselves, and let your heart guide you.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Planning for a Full-Time RV Lifestyle

In planning for a full-time RV lifestyle, lets just say, “we are in the visualization” stage!  This has been our dream for a very long time; to live on the road and experience every corner of North America!

We visualize all the pictures we will be taking, all the blog posts that will go along with those pictures, and all the people we will meet.  The RV Lifestyle is a community within itself and we would love to meet absolutely everyone – or at least try too!

Yesterday, we went and had a peek at a 5th Wheel that is for sale.  It is a 2008, 38 foot Wyoming by Coachman.  Although, we really need a 2 bedroom, it was nice to take the first step in actually checking one out.  By doing this, it really got the ball rolling!  With planning The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour, this is how we see ourselves traveling across the country.  I can’t wait!!

Talk about having the butterflies; I’m so excited to be planning this new chapter and visualizing how it is all going to come together.  From our home on wheels, to all the venues and RV parks we are going to be staying at – it truly is the ultimate dream for our family.

I would love to hear all your experiences with RV’s, traveling on the road, your RV lifestyle, and how you love it!  Feel free to comment and share your experiences!
