The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Saw The Light

When I was growing up, I remember when someone made a great choice in life, my Mom used to always say, “They Saw The Light!” Meaning, they got it, they were on the right track, and they were moving in the right direction. Moving forward in a positive way in life.

We all have moments, where we feel we are stumbling around in the dark, not knowing what to do, which way to turn, who to reach out too, needing someone to show us the way, feeling stuck, and just frustrated and confused. I like to believe, we learn the best lessons during this time in our lives. We learn to turn the light on!

We have more control in our lives than we think, especially when it comes to going through difficult times. It is our panic and frustration that like to keep us in the dark. The key is to just keep breathing through it all. Remain calm and before you know it, the panic and anxiety will leave. Before you know it, that light will start shimmering, start twinkling and there it is, and nice bright light. That is when you will take the best breath in and the best breath out! Your shoulders will relax back to where they are suppose to be, instead of up by our ears, your eyes will not look like daggers, and the vice grip around your head, will no longer be there.

I love looking forward to seeing the light in different situations. The minute a challenging issue appears, I stop and think to myself, “I can’t wait to see what I’m going to learn now!” Just changing my mindset about a difficult situation, has taught me to relax more. No anxiety!

Give it a try! You may just see the light!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Nothing But A Good Time!

Why is it so hard for some people to believe that you can have nothing but a good time in your life? They say this concept is not reasonable, or by thinking this way, a person may have “their head in the clouds!” I on the other hand, believe that it is worth a shot and our lives are worth it to wake up thinking, that no matter what we do today, we are going to have nothing but a good time at it!

I suppose, when you wake up and the first thought is, “I’m going to have nothing but a good time today”, don’t you think you are setting the intention for a fun day? Wouldn’t it be something, that because of this intention, you smiled all day long? I believe your life is worth giving it a try and just see what happens!

You may even have the urge to dance around the house and even sing as if not one person was watching!

When I look back on my life, I remember being conditioned to think that life is not a party, it is about hard work! So there!! I was left to think, that’s all I needed to do was work hard at a career I had no interest in, and no matter what cost it brought to my life, I had to suck it up and push forward! Talk about life sucking! Then a light bulb came on and that was it! From now on, it was all going to be about what could bring me happiness, what could make me smile and what I was passionate about in my life.

I remember some of the looks on the faces when I actually stood up for who I was and what I wanted to do with my life; total shock and disgust! How dare I do something that could actually make me happy first over making others rich. Yes! I put me first!

What a concept! This also gave me the gift of having no regrets; I am living my life based on me and who I am. You will be amazed at the gifts you will receive in your life, by following what is in your heart.

Your life is worth putting the effort into following what makes you happy! Your life is worth waking up and looking forward to having nothing but a good time!

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 – A Beautiful Mind Is Found In All Of Us!

A Beautiful Mind is found in all of us!

There are times in life, we may meet people who have nothing but negativity in their minds; please understand, this is temporary. A Beautiful Mind is created from life experiences; good and bad.

In my experience, it is easy to judge those based on their choices they made many years ago; how silly is this concept. Think about it! If someone made a bad decision when they were 19 years old (and I don’t mean something illegal, I mean something minor), but yet as they matured, lived a life, and at 50 years old they were still judged based on the bad decision they made 31 years ago, what a shame! These people could have become someone unique, wise, caring, compassionate, and loving; to not want anything to do with this person over something they did 31 years ago, you are the ones missing out.

You are the ones missing out on a Beautiful Mind!

Yes, there are individuals who never understand they have the potential to have a beautiful mind, but it is because they didn’t think they had any support, any love, or anyone to go to for help. They settled thinking they didn’t have any choices. We have so many options in our World, we need to encourage those who are hurting to reach out. Their beautiful mind is worth it.

What do all negatives need? They need a positive to balance it out. Never settle for any negative that is floating around in your mind; know there is always a positive to lean on and to gain wisdom from. Your beautiful mind deserves the attention, it deserves care, it deserves comfort, and it deserves forgiveness. A beautiful mind is created when we understand we are here to learn, to focus our intentions in a positive way, and to encourage others to do the same.
