The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love You!

Love – the best 4 letter word you can say!

The word “Love” does not always mean “to fall in love with someone”, but instead I believe Love should start with “falling in love with yourself” first.

You can love so many people, animals, places, food, things, information, and the World itself, but not many people will say, “I love myself” first when asked the question, “what is it that you love?  Who do you love?”

In starting this new year, I decided to start my day off with Affirmations!  You know, the “I Am” process which everyone should do.  That’s just my opinion 😊 I found in starting my day off in a positive way before my feet even hit the floor in the morning, I was loving myself more and more.  I was loving myself from the “inside” which then made my love for the “outside” of myself better.

We are all guilty of being our worst critics, but what about being are greatest supporters?  By supporting yourself and finding the positive in yourself, you in turn starting loving yourself more and more every single day!

I feel it is so very important to Love Yourself!  With so much negativity in the World (which I might add, could all be solved with a good old fashioned “love thy neighbor” workshop), we need to focus on Love.  When you love yourself, you smile more.  When you love yourself, you are more kind to others. When you love yourself, you have a sense of Peace.

There is so much to be grateful for in your life; start by being grateful for yourself!  Start by loving who you are, your thoughts, your dreams, your kindness towards others, and your compassion!  These are just a few areas of your life you can start with, then each day, add one or two more characteristics about yourself that you should and could love.

Share your love for yourself; love is contagious and should be shared!

With Good Vibes Only – Love You!

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Let The Sun Shine!

Depending on where you live and depending on the type of weather you experience, this time of year can bring on the “hum drum” sadness.  Cold and snowy weather can cause us to sink into a tiny bit of depression.  We don’t realize just how much we rely on a beautiful sunny day.

This is when I like to harness creative visualization to get me through those days.

It is funny, just how powerful our minds are, when we visualize sunny days, or anything positive for that matter.  Our environment is a reflection of who we are, and especially when weather affects us, it is important to dive into our creative ability to change our environment to help guide us out of the “hum drum” state.

What I like to do, is create a warm destination in my own home.  I will have a nice citrus candle or aromatherapy burner going, I will take a bath filled with tropical senses, and if I happen to be staying home for the day, I will dress as if it is 90 degrees outside – nothing wrong with wearing your flip flops in the house and freeing your feet.  I will turn on some Hawaiian music, and I will even cook a summer dinner.  It works!  I don’t even have to look outside and see the 3 feet of snow; my mind has created a nice sunny day with beautiful flowers.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is something that should be taken seriously; if you find yourself experiencing SAD, then it is important to start with your environment.  Your Home!  Our senses are the way to helping yourself feel better.  From the sense of smell, taste, and hearing.  Give yourself the gift of treating your senses to a burst of sunlight!

Remember, this weather is temporary and we will all get through it!  We will all enjoy the sun that is shining and making us smile soon enough; but for now, there is nothing wrong with creating this atmosphere in your home.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I’m Loving My Playlist!

There is no hiding it – I am a Rock n’ Roll Lover!  Especially the 80’s Hair Bands!  I’m not sure if it was the music, or the fact I wanted to have long hair and make up like they had, but regardless, those 80’s hair bands stole my heart!

My love for music has grown over the years; I love every genre of music.  I appreciate the different feelings I experience while listening to such creativity.

Every single time I sit down to start writing, I must have music playing.  Today, I have a “coffeehouse” playlist which is calming and interesting at the same time.  The creativity behind this music, clearly is all about emotions.  Music from their hearts!

I feel very fortunate to have all these artists creating music; brings me a sense of calm, encourages me with my own creativity, and puts a smile on my face.  Every now and then, music inspires me to get up and dance!  Not only am I exercising my mind with music, I am exercising my body.

I’d love for you to share with me your favorite playlists – what makes you happy in Music?

Gratitude all the way for music!  From the 80’s hair bands to the calm of New Age Music, I love it all!  Inspiration to start my day!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Coming Soon – Book 2

Last year I wrote, “The Good Vibes Only Roadshow” which was a very peaceful experience for me.  This book is not only my own personal journey through different challenges, what I learned by looking outside the box, and my journey in finding peace in difficult situations, but it teaches you how to help yourself and see yourself through your own challenging times.

This book helps you to create your own Good Vibes Only Roadshow in Life.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow also serves as a personal memoir which you can eventually pass down to your loved ones.  I feel having this to share with your family, is very important for them to see just who you are and how you think.

If you haven’t already checked it out, please do so at the following links:

This experience has allowed me to create a more positive life; a more positive way of thinking.  Once I finally finished writing this book, I craved more!

I will be creating Book 2 in The Good Vibes Only Roadshow series;  continuing my journey and sharing with others.  I feel it is important to share our positive experiences with others, as we may just be helping someone out of a dark place by doing so.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post; I look forward to sharing with you Book 2 once it is ready to be released, as well as, my continuing blog posts.

Thank you all for your support and friendship!

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 – I Laugh Too Myself!

Laughter is the Best Medicine!

Life is filled with so much to worry about; I think it is time we start focusing on what there is too laugh about!  We take the time to worry and consume ourselves with the “what ifs”, that we forget just how much more there is in life to smile or laugh at!

We have options to help ourselves laugh!

If you are feeling consumed by worry, take a break and dive into the following:

  • Turn on a comedy
  • Go into your local bookstore and read a joke book
  • Google is everyone’s best-friend, search humor
  • Use your mind and think back to a time where something made you laugh

And if that doesn’t work, and don’t ask me why this tends to make someone laugh, but “picture” someone stubbing their toe!  I’m not one for enjoying someone else’s pain, but for whatever reason, the majority will get at least a little chuckle out of watching a good ol’ toe stubbing.

There are always options to find a good laugh!  Don’t let the negative in!  Learn to laugh at it!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – New Life

First, I would like to apologize for being away from my blog, The Good Vibes Only Roadshow, for what seemed to feel like eternity!

We, as a family, decided to take another look at our plan to bring you The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour 2024 (in five years) but instead we agreed we needed to go for it NOW!!

We moved out of our apartment, and became a full-time RV family! Why were we waiting?  I suppose a little of traditional values we were raised with (just keep a job until retirement) were lingering around in our heads that, “we should” work and work some more before going for it; but it is very hard to tame a FREE SPIRIT!

We have been organizing our home on wheels the past 2 months, and putting together our new World!  New mindset for living on the road, and creating new projects which will now become our lifestyle.  We will be bringing so much to share with others while we set off on this new adventure; we are very excited and nervous at the same time, but it is a good nervous!

We feel like we have a new outlook on life!  Our experiences this past year have shown us what is important – happiness!

I’ve missed reaching out to you all, and I look forward to sharing my blog posts with you and including you in on our journey!
