The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Rebirth of the Hippie Movement

This would be the ultimate dream for me; witnessing the rebirth of the Hippie Movement!  Living in complete Peace!  Helping others from deep within our hearts!  Surviving on fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains!  Living in a time where no animals were hurt or killed!  Practicing alternative remedies “only” for our health!  Sharing the importance of kindness, love, acceptance, respect, and peace.  Recycling is a way of life!

A World where there are no wars, where everyone laughed instead of cried, and where everyone could feel safe.

A World where nature was praised, where if you built a home it was done by recycling as many products as possible.

A World where we shared freely without expectations.

A World where children could be children and not have to grow up so quick to understand that there are negatives in this current World we live in.

A World where our health was not harmed so easily; where we could cure all our ailments with the power of plants and herbs.

A World where we are not prescribed harmful drugs with side effects, but instead prescribed the antioxidants and alternative remedies.

A World where people preferred to walk more instead of drive to go just down the street.

A World where going barefoot is grounding to the soul, rather than looked at as dirty.

A World where anxieties did not exist!

A World where instead of shaking hands, we gave the sign of peace with our fingers in the air!

A World where meditation, acts of kindness, and gratitude are practiced in schools, in the workplace, and in homes.

A World where there is no reason for anger, but instead finding more reasons to share more love.

A World where a quality of life is pure and exists every single day!  Where our elderly can have a quality of life without paying thousands of dollars.  Where their quality is given more freely.

A World where we are all one!  A World where we all care about each other!

Guess what?  We may not be doing everything I’ve listed above, but we are slowing moving in that direction.  We have a lot to get through, but we are currently practicing these steps, or at least paying attention to wanting to do these steps, as one very large family!  Everyone on the planet are becoming one large hippie movement!  We are focusing on this every single day!  Ways we can, not only help our planet, but ways to help each other in a giving, peaceful, loving way!

I raise my peace sign to you!  I am happy to be able to witness this change in the World!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Shopping Online

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve done some online shopping in my life, but for the most part, I’ve been one to go out and do my shopping, especially for food.  However, times are changing and wouldn’t you know it, the online shopping World is now becoming our new daily normal.

I know you’ve heard me say, “book an appointment with yourself”, well at that time, I was referring to booking an appointment with yourself to do some self-wellness activity.  Who would of thought I would be saying, “book an appointment with yourself to do some daily online shopping” – New World!!

I suppose I took for granted that you were already doing at least some online shopping.

I have been researching products, deliveries, costs, and trying to get into a system where our family does not have to leave our home so much.  I’m happy to announce, after 4 solid days of research and organization, our family is now 100% online (delivery) and online (curbside) for every one of our needs.

Feels good to know by doing so, we have created more space in the grocery stores/essential stores for those who do not have access to online shopping

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -A Few Special Friends

I’ve always done this, but more so now than ever, I’ve been thinking a lot about my friends 💞

Friends from my childhood, friends from my young adult days, friends that I’ve worked with in the past, and friends I have now.  I’m grateful there is somewhat of a crossover with my childhood to now, and from my past to now, and even from my career to now, but it doesn’t matter what part of my life my friends came from, I’ve been thinking of them.

I know I’m not alone in thinking about them or the memories they have brought to me; we are all probably finding ourselves walking down this lane.  I’m grateful for the adventure these memories have taken me on.  Plus I’m grateful for being able to still talk to these individuals.

I suppose you could say, “we are making new memories together!”

This last week, I found myself wanting badly to travel to go visit some of these friends, and of course knowing that I couldn’t was a bit difficult.  Before I became to sad or depressed, I decided to research ways of communicating instead of using Messenger or Texting.  Along with the rest of the World, I came across Zoom.  I’m excited to get started with it; part of me is nervous, but for the most part I’m excited.

I miss my friends quite a bit; there are some I haven’t spoken to in many years, but I also know that the minute we start talking it will be like we never stopped.  Those are my “special friends”, the ones where you have that chemistry, the bond, and the utmost respect for each other, that nothing can stand in the way of picking up where you left off.

The old saying (1970’s) used to be, “pick up the phone and reach out and touch somebody”, but now the way I look at it, it wouldn’t surprise me if the saying became, “reach out and Zoom somebody!”  As a kid, the first saying never made much sense to me either, because I couldn’t figure out how you could touch someone through the phone!  Keep in mind, I was only 8 or 9 at that point!! 😂😂 Times are changing!

My message for you today:

Reach out and communicate with those you are missing!  Pick up your phone, try Zoom, text, Messenger, or even FaceTime!  We have options!  Let your friends know you are thinking of them, talk about the good times, and do some walking down memory lane!  Stay connected!  Remind them they are loved, they are needed in your life, and remind them of how much happiness they brought to your life and continue to do so.  Appreciation for your Special Friends!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Family Plans!

Boy, my family and I have sure been doing some thinking!  We have made some family plans, which will change our future lifestyle, in a great way!

I’m a firm believer, things happen for a reason, whether we want them to or not.  We are meant to learn a valuable lesson when certain events happen in our lives.  There is no other answer for it!  We are here to learn!

As a family, we have decided to go back to the basics in life, with Internet of course!!  Baby steps!!  Right??

When we see how our lives, as we know it can be stopped so quickly, with no fault of our own, and how whether we wanted to or not, we had to adjust to a new way of life, made us do some serious thinking.  We wanted to have a life where we could at least limit the amount of worry.  To have a better sense of Peace.

Call it, a mix of Little House On The Prairie meets Technology!  Ya, I haven’t really figured out the mix just yet, but you get the picture!!

We have taken our lifestyle to a new level, and that is to build a homestead out of shipping containers, live self sustaining, and live off grid.  To be honest, we do not know when we are going to do this, but at least we are in the planning stages.  The main thing, is we are very excited to dive into this new way of life.  I can’t wait to focus on my career in writing, while living this new lifestyle.  I can visualize it, but I can’t wait to “feel” it!

We still have our plans, to one day, bring The Good Vibes Only Roadshow, literally “on the road”, to do our best to help others focus on positive perspectives in life.  In fact, last summer we test drove, living in a 5th wheel full-time to have a time of adjustment.  It went very well, so we know we could adjust to that lifestyle.  Happy Dance!!!

I suppose, during this time, our lives have become even more creative and that is something I look forward too every single day!  So whether or not, our plans happen now or a year down the road, they make me smile when I wake up each morning!

We are all here to learn, and we are trying to do just that; learn as we go!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Dream Can Come True

I have come to the conclusion that nothing can stop you – A Dream Can Come True!

We may get started on living our “dream” to find yet another roadblock in life!  We just need to put on our Marvel costume of choice😉😉 , while we are flying over yet another challenge!!  Not to worry; let these roadblocks help build your character while you are becoming more and more accepting.  Stare at these challenges, give them a wink, and move forward!

The bottom line is this:

We cannot let anything, and I mean ANYTHING get in the way of making our dreams come true!  We may have to sacrifice staying at home, staying away from friends and family, and staying away from life as we knew it, but this is temporary!

Take this time to dive into your dream from a different perspective!  A planning perspective!  This is your time to harness absolutely everything needed to continue with your dreams in life.  It is time to perhaps, do more researching, reach out to those in the industry you are interested in (trust me, they have lots of time to answer any questions you may have), plan your steps, join some networks or groups, and create that step-by-step guide to Reaching Your Dreams!

This is your creative time, your visualization time, time for you to look back and see if you need to make any changes so that you can achieve your dreams, and time to actually “enjoy” each step of the way (we tend to forget to enjoy each stage).

This is your time!  Enjoy your dreams!  Wrap yourself up in every day knowing you are that much closer to achieving your dreams.  This time in your life, has been placed before you to gain wisdom, to gain gratitude for each day, to appreciate those in your life just a little bit more than you already do, and to become just a little bit more humble.

Your dreams can come true!  Stay Positive!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The New World!

A couple of days ago, I read an article of an elderly man who was 107 years of age, who was a young boy during the Spanish Flu.  He was asked many questions, but the one that stood out to me was, “how did everyone get back on their feet?”  His answer was simple, “we all helped each other.”

It wasn’t about, “if I help you, how much are you going to pay me?”, it was about just helping with no expectations of receiving any money.  Greed did not get in the way.

I understand that times are different right now, but really, are they that different?  Could we help each other recover from this old World we lived in, in order to move into the New World?

I’d like to believe we could!!

My vision for our new way of living, is one of Peace.  Where we smile at our neighbor, not because it is the right thing to do, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart.  Where we help each other with our time, not because we are expecting money in return, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart.  Where we give to each other of items we can spare, not because they will owe you one day, but because we sincerely “feel” it in our heart.

No expectations from anyone; just doing good for everyone!  Acts of Kindness!!

I really believe we can do it!  Going back to the old days!  Community!  Self Sustaining!  Neighborly! Helpful, friendly, and kind!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Just Breathe!

Just Breathe!  The two most important words we need to live by these days!

I know it can be hard, when we find ourselves overwhelmed with all the changes that are happening in our lives.  To be honest, the one thing that helps me to start relaxing with my breath, is knowing I’m not alone.  I have the entire World helping me along.

I never really thought I’d ever see the day, where the World would be working together, where everything else was put on the back burner.  Now this could go either way, holding your breath because of the shock the World is actually working together, or a relaxed breath with the comfort of knowing we are all one.  I try daily to focus on the calm, relaxed breath, knowing we are all one ❤❤

This change we are experiencing, came on quick; there is no denying it.  Even more reason to watch are breath.  Taking time during our day, to “just breathe” is so important during these times.  Whether we take a moment to focus on meditation, to practice yoga, or to just listen and feel our bodies breathing, should be a daily session with ourselves.

This exercise can be very calming to us, while the World is changing, while we need to adjust, and while we are still trying to accept.  A calm approach is needed and it all starts with our breath.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Don’t Let It Win!

My family and I have been in, what is referred to as, isolation, lock-down, and have been practicing social distancing, along with all the other requirements to get through these times.  I like to refer to it as, we are just staying at home!

I find, if we start giving our time “titles” then the issue that is controlling the World right now, is actually winning even more.  I refuse to let this “invisible pain in the World’s backside” win!

We all know, what we all need to do, to take back our control of our lives!  There is no reason, why we have to constantly remind ourselves of “what” it is called.  I find to maintain a healthy mindset, we need to try and maintain normalcy.

Instead of saying, we are living in isolation, just say, we are still living at home.

Instead of saying, we are social distancing, just say, we are enjoying being in our own bubble (space), we are trying something new!

Instead of saying, we are on lock-down, just say, we are diving into Spring cleaning, and spending quality time with our family, friends, pets, or even spending time planning our dreams; we love our home/space so much, we just don’t want to leave.

To gain some sense of control back, since living this way was out of our control, we can easily say, “we are trying something new.  We are doing a project and making use of our time.  We are gaining more gratitude for each other, by spending more time with each other.”

There are so many ways of looking at our situation we are all living in at the moment, but by throwing a little positive mindset into the mix of things, we are having more fun, we are feeling less anxiety, and we are actually relaxing a bit more.

The best part of it all, is this invisible pain the backside I referred to earlier, is not winning so much, and I quite like that idea.

Keep Spreading The Love & Stay Home!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We Are Learning!

During this time in our lives, we as a family, are learning!  We are going through, what I like to refer to it as,  a reality check!

How quickly life can change, out of our control.  How quickly you can be working your dream job and then poof, your not!  How quickly you can own a thriving business, the surprise it’s gone!  What we think of as normal, is now so far out of reach (for now!)

However, there is a better way of looking at it!

I want to make sure you understand, we are all doing this together!  This is why I am sharing with you, what I’ve learned and how it has comforted me.  There will be options for you to consider if you are needing them.

Yes, there is no hiding it, there is loss all over the World; that is our new reality.  Loss does not have to remain loss!  Loss is a time to get creative, not just in work, but in your lifestyle.

Start planning for a simple future!  Do we need all those bills?  Do we need a high mortgage?  Do we need to pay an even higher rent to cover someone else’s mortgage and expenses?  Do you feel trapped knowing you will still need to pay these things?  I haven’t even spoke about Gas and Power bills yet…guess what I don’t feel I need too…they are still there!

However, the answer to all of that is NO!

You have options!  The question is, are you willing to live a more simple life in order to not have the pressure of a huge financial load?

My family and I, have taken the past month, to look at our lives, and to find ways of cutting costs.  Minimize life!

We have been researching different “home” options out there and to be honest, they give me more excitement to look forward too one day.  Everything from full-time RV living (mind you, there are currently very minimal choices in that department for people to stay at), shipping container homes (supplies can be recycled to finish the inside of the container), renting land to place trailers or shipping containers on, Yurt’s, tiny homes, and commune living (not religious commune’s but that is your choice) where you rent land or buy farm land “together” with friends or family and place numerous trailers, containers, etc. on the land and have a community garden, laundry, etc.

The lives we live now, have taught us that being humble in our approach is a gift!  We are going to go back to living a simple life.  We have no detailed answers as to all the questions in how we are going to do this, or which option we are going to take, but at least we have decided to live a life where we are at Peace.

This lifestyle is not for everyone, but we have learned, the last thing we want to worry about is astronomical loss.  We are all going through that now, we don’t want to go through it again.  Living having learned valuable lessons is a Gift!  We are going to make sure we share that gift with our experiences to as many people as possible.

Keep Sharing The Love!
