The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love What You Do And Do What You Love

The TV show, The Big Interview With Dan Rather, has been my “go too” lately! In fact, we as a family have been watching it for inspiration.

Pretty much, everyone who Dan interviews says, “Love What You Do And Do What You Love”, which is key in every profession. If you love what you do, then you will never work a day in your life.

This show has captured the importance of passion in life, in a career, in hopes, in dreams, and in driving forward no matter what age a person is, you continue to work.

Last night, we watched the episode with Brett Michael’s, and WOW! He has been down with his health, more times than I thought, but he has overcome and pushed forward. Why? He has passion for life, for his career, and for giving back. I’m inspired!

It is easy to get down, especially now in the World we live in, but by perseverance, not letting go of your passion in life, and finding ways to make it work, then it is all positive. It is about not giving up.

I have moments where I look at my life and I think to myself, “I have great intentions, I care, I try to inspire others, I have creative passions, so then why is it so hard to make a living with what I love to do?” My questions were answered last night, listening to Brett, he spoke about when you follow your passions, it is harder than just getting a job, but with blood, sweat, and tears, it will eventually happen.

I’d like to believe this to be true. I have no plans on giving up, I want to continue with what makes me happy, makes me smile, and fills my heart. I will continue to follow my passions, no matter what is put in front of me.

We need to do this together! It is about supporting each other; whether it is a kind word every now and then, it will make a difference in someone’s World.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Sharing Dreams

When you are passionate about a dream you have for your life, all you want to do is share your vision with enthusiasm with whomever will listen. You want to share what is making you feel happy! There is nothing wrong with this concept and you should share; unfortunately, some people may not be in the same mindset as you are when it comes to sharing something positive.

Don’t fear their reaction, don’t worry if you have insulted them by sharing your positive vibe, and please do not let it stop you from pursuing your dreams! I’m sure you have heard this before, “when you hear a No, this does not mean it won’t become a Yes one day!” This is the same concept with sharing passions to negative people. Just because they are negative now, does not mean it won’t become a positive eventually. Who knows, maybe by sharing your dreams, this is what is needed for them to change their own mindset and start looking for their own dream to be passionate about. You might just be an inspiration to someone else.

Never stop sharing, never stop being passionate about your hopes, your dreams, or your goals in life, and never stop talking to people about them. When you share, you inspire! When you share, you are showing hope! When you share, you are showing a drive for something great!

The short form is this:

Inspire those with hope, to find something great!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Going Back Home

For a very long time, I’ve wanted to be able to go back to my hometown to visit, but life always seemed to hand out more to deal with. Was this the Universe trying to tell me, I wasn’t meant to go back home? Then the Pandemic hit, and now it was going to be even longer before I could even think of heading back home. I found myself “in the meantime” and needing to make use out of this time.

Instead of feeling sad and lonely, I decided to get creative, I decided to visualize what it would be like going back home, I decided to embrace myself with the memories of a better time. My memories took me on a journey throughout my life; instead of feeling stuck in the past, I found myself healing my need to visit and healing the void. I was moving forward! At this time, I was still on a journey in my memories. Why was I experiencing a different perspective?

Was it because, I’ve grown “again” in a short period of time? Was it because, I was not taking my life I live now for granted? Was I showing more appreciation for the “now”, rather than the “past”? Were my memories creating more awareness for me? I was learning, I was letting go, and I was clearing out my mind, body and soul for new experiences. The past was fading into the distant; I blew it a kiss and waved good-bye. As I just had a beautiful visit; one I will cherish forever.

I have no regrets, I have great memories, I have lessons I’ve learned from, and I have friends that are dear to my heart. Sometimes, we don’t necessarily need to go back in the physical form, but instead we can go back in our minds and move forward.

I have learned that when devastation hit with this Pandemic, my first instinct was to run “home”. I couldn’t get back to my hometown fast enough! In reality, I hadn’t been home for 14 years, so why now all of a sudden was it so important for me to go home? I’ve come to the conclusion, home is comforting. I was needing the comfort as, along with everyone else, I was nervous and a bit scared as to what this Pandemic was going to be like. We had never experienced anything like it before.

Things started to become the new normal and we were able to understand the situation much better. Everything is a learning experience.

I now know, that if given the opportunity to one day visit my hometown, I can now do it with a sense of Peace and gratitude for the town that made me who I am today.

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 – 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!”

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 – Morning Person!

I’m a Morning Person!!!  There, I said it!!  Can’t help it!!  But, I love it!!

I love waking up knowing I get to make the best out of this day!  I get to smile at my family, I get to smile at my friends, and I get to smile with all of you!  Knowing I get to share my thoughts with all of you, makes me smile and brings me such happiness.  I am grateful to be able to share with you!

Our lives are not always easy, after all take a look at what we are currently dealing with!  But…I am grateful I am dealing with this pandemic with all of you, and that makes me smile even more; I wake up knowing we are all in this together and we are all going to make this World better together!  Big Smile!

I’m a Morning Person!!!  My life has not always been easy; some may think it has, but let me tell you, I have been through my own challenges.  I promised myself a long time ago, I would continue to wake up and smile and be that Morning Person!  I didn’t want the challenges in my life to win!  If I woke up crabby, then these challenges won, before the day even started!  Does that seem fair to you?  Why even get out of bed?

Becoming a Morning Person, has given “me” my own happiness.  Happiness I created for myself.  I will wake up energized and ready to create a joyful day!

I know, right now, it seems it is very difficult to smile, and I get it!  The way I look at it, is yes we are only human, and we will have our moments, we need to deal with so much loss right now, and how are we going to bounce back?  So many questions, with so little answers.  Strength!  Strength is the answer!  Strength in coming together!  Strength in knowing you are not alone!  Strength in knowing it is okay to smile and wake up ready to do something great in the times we are living in!

We need to smile!  We need to not only smile for ourselves, but for those who are hurting!  For those who are working the front lines!  For those who are dedicating their lives to saving ours!  For those who have lost loved ones!  For those who need comfort!  For those who feel lost!  They need your smiles right now!  By showing your smiles, they will not give up, but instead will feel refueled!  Your smile to them, say, “thank you”, says, “you are loved”, and says, “I’m here for you”.

Smile for EVERYONE!  We all need it right now!  Become that Morning Person!  Start your day wanting to give of yourself with a simple smile!  Being a Morning Person, will bring so much light to ones life, who desperately needs it right now!

Give the Gift of being a Morning Person!  Share kindness, share your gratitude, and share your strength!

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!
