The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Creating A Sanctuary

Since we have been cleaning and cleaning our home, for what seems like an endless amount of time, product, and muscle, it is now time to focus on creating a sanctuary.  Change it up a bit!  Move some furniture around!  Create a different look!

When the virus broke out, we packed up all our dust collectors, our pictures, items we were not using, and left a blank canvas for a home.  We cleaned and cleaned some more, to make sure we were following the proper steps for fighting the virus.  I know it seems a little obsessive, but when dealing with something we have never dealt with before, we didn’t want to risk anything.  Proactive at its finest!

The benefit of this project of packing and cleaning, made us see just what we could live without and what we actually needed.  It was a gift to look at our home empty, except for the necessities.  We created an environment that could breathe better!  The energy flow in our home was calmer and flowed more freely.

As time has gone by, and we are getting accustomed to how we are now living in the New World and living in a new realization, it is now time to start to create our sanctuary.

We needed to take this time in our lives, to not put pressure on ourselves in trying to understand our New World.  We needed to take this time to not panic, but instead to learn how to accept.  We needed to take this time to look at our lives and see where our creativity could take us and how we could make a life where we were more self sustaining, more resourceful, and more reliant on our abilities that we had at one time taken for granted.

It is funny what you learn about yourself, when you just take that moment to sit back, breathe, and tap into “you”.  My abilities of writing, cooking, growing vegetables, making homemade products, for example, have now become my full-time career.  I found a way to turn what I do on a daily basis, into a career.  A career in sharing!  Sharing what I have learned on this new journey!  The Good Vibes Only Roadshow has now become something larger, but yet something more valuable – it has become life changing.

Our sanctuary is going to reflect all what we have learned in the past couple of months, it is going to reflect our connection with each other and our goals for the future.  Our sanctuary is not about material items, it will be more about peace, calm, and reflection.

I hope you take this time to reflect, change or rearrange, and create a space that is all about who you are now; who you have become.  Embrace this change; life has handed us out an experience to learn by, in more ways than one.  Make the best of your environment you are living in; let some light in, let the air flow, and feel the balance.  Calm your mind; calm your space!

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 – 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 – How Are You Doing?

I won’t lie, the past month has been quite the year!!!  How are you all doing?

I feel it is very important to check in with each other, more now than ever.  Opening up the lines of communication, opening up your heart, and just saying a great big, “Hello!  How are you doing?”

I have been doing a whole lot of thinking these days!  I must tell you, I am learning quite a bit about life and how grateful I am for everyone in my life.  I’m not just grateful for my family and friends, but I find myself grateful for absolutely everyone on this planet!

I am grateful for the picture of the little kids coloring pictures for our healthcare workers.  I am grateful for the news broadcasters who are also risking their lives to protect us with the latest news.  I am grateful for all emergency crews, for grocery store clerks, for pharmacists providing medicine to those in need, for our sanitation crews still picking up our garbage, recycling and composting.  I am grateful for delivery companies, truck drivers bringing supplies to our stores, and for post office employees still delivering mail.  I am grateful for our Governments who are trying desperately to work together with Peace, health, and our futures in mind.  It can’t be an easy job; our patience is required while they try to do the best for us.

I am extremely grateful for social media and the internet!  Without it we wouldn’t be able to help each other and lift each other up through these different times.  I would be lost without all of you!  I am so grateful to be able to talk to you all, and will forever be grateful for this platform.

I am grateful to have Facebook!  I can see my family who do not live with us.  I can still tell them I love them!  I can still see my friends and support their hopes for a better tomorrow.  I can support my followers and provide them with as much inspiration as I can, knowing that if I help just one person a day, then I’m doing my part in this World!

There are so many more people I am grateful for, the list is endless, but I must say, I am very grateful for the pictures of pets and animals.  They have no idea what is going on, but their images bring so much comfort to many.

I wake up each day, hoping and praying that everyone is doing well, they are safe, and they are remaining in their homes to remain healthy.

This is how I am doing in my life; how are you doing?

I want to hear you, I want you to use your voice and express yourself, and I want you to do this knowing you are safe to wear your heart on your sleeve.  You will be heard!  Share your days, your hopes and your dreams.

I wish you all comfort ❤

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We Are Making History! We Are All In This Together!

Facebook asks me every morning, “What’s on my mind?”
Then it hit me like a Mack Truck!
AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE ALL MAKING HISTORY!
The World has finally all come together as ONE and are working as a Team with nothing but care and compassion in their Hearts
The enemy in this case is invisible and we NEED each other to fight it off!  In my eyes, this is World War III and we are not fighting each other.
We truly are ONE!
The thought that we are doing this brought tears to my eyes.  The thought of what it took to bring us all together, made me cry even more, but the reality of it is that we were not fighting each other to get us to this point.
It is possible to live in Peace, to actually love each other enough (as we are doing now) to be kind to everyone, and it is possible to live a life where we do not cause pain to another human being or animal!
We are living the proof right now, that we can continue doing so!  Life is precious!
