The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Don’t Worry!

Please don’t worry, this too shall pass!  You’ve heard many people say, “Don’t worry, be happy”, and I know it’s hard, but the easiest thing you can do is simply smile.

When you find yourself worrying, find a quiet place with a mirror (perhaps a bathroom) and look at your face.  You will be shocked at how sad you look; it will probably upset you more.  You may cry, you may not, but if you do –   Welcome those Tears!

Once all the tears are done, splash water on your face and then give yourself a huge smile!  Why?  You just grew in that very moment; the gift of release gave you the gift of comfort!

Embrace it!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – “Me” Day

Have you ever said to yourself, “Boy, I could sure use a day to myself!”

I think we have all been there; life gets overwhelming and busy.  We find ourselves torn between so many people and things, we don’t know where to turn.  We have obligations, bills, and loads of pressure – that’s when you give yourself the Gift of  a “Me” Day.

Even if you find taking a full day to yourself doesn’t work with your schedule, make sure you “make an appointment” with yourself each day for a least one hour.  We make appointments every day with everyone else, why not do it for yourself!

In the one hour you schedule for yourself, make sure you are doing something that has everything to do with “you”.  Whether you enjoy sports, cooking, reading, writing, shopping, or just doing absolutely nothing at all – just do what makes you happy!

Take time for you and have a “Me” Day or a “Me” Moment and wrap yourself up in it!

Enjoy, Enjoy, and Enjoy some more!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Living Together As A Family

Living our lives together as a family, consists of so much!  I am a woman who has a belief system, you don’t have to move out of the family home once you turn 18 or graduate from school.  I understand independence, but when the time is right.  Age should not dictate, “when a person is ready” to move out and start their lives.

Experience and Wisdom will allow the feeling of being comfortable to “want” to move out of the family home.

For our family, we have the belief that if you can all still live together and “want” to live together as a family, then why not!  It does not stop anyone from growing “independently” or “having responsibility”, in fact it has created a stronger bond, one that our dreams in life are focused on.

We have provided options to our kids; if they want to stay with us, they can.  If they want to live on their own, they can do that as well.  Freedom of choice!

When you force your child to, “move out”, they are starting their independent life with fewer choices.  The chances of them having a difficult time in life, providing for themselves (especially in today’s World) are going to be more of a struggle for them.  You can help your child grow and gain their independence under the same roof.  We are not living in the 1950’s, we need to adjust to the World we live in and support each other; creating new traditions.

I know everyone has their own opinion on this topic and all kids are different; but I’d like to believe in order for our children to succeed in life, they need to venture out when they are ready and not by being forced out the door.

Everything we do in life, from living together, loving each other, supporting each other, and caring for each other, needs to be done without pressure – the World is a different place today, but we can still live in Peace.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Time Is Right

How many times have you said to yourself, “I’ll do (fill in the blank) when the time is right.”  When is the time ever right?

Are you waiting to have a certain amount of money in the bank?  Whatever your reason is for “when the time is right”, I think it is time we changed this phrase to “the time IS right!”

We, as a family, have changed our thought process to “being in the NOW”.  To be honest, this concept has been working in a positive way!  The Time Is Right for anything you would like to do.  If your “time is right” is based on saving money for, there is nothing wrong with starting the planning stage, starting your visualization, starting anything positive towards this goal you have.  By doing this, you are in “the time is right” stage.

Why wait for “when”, when you can start achieving your goals NOW!  No hesitation is needed; just go for it!  You will have no regrets, you will feel more fulfilled, you will look forward to each day knowing you are in “the time is right” stage.  Remember, as long as you are doing something each day to achieve what you are waiting for, then you are accomplishing your goal.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Stepfamily

Anyone can be a Mother, Father,  Stepmom, or Stepdad, but it takes a fearless warrior to be a great parent!  Absolutely true!

Technically, my husband and I are both stepparents to our children.  In trying to have some fun with being a stepparent, I used to refer to being a stepmom as, “Mom The Sequel!”  😊😊

The stereotype of being a stepparent has its ups and downs and to be honest, it is kind of blah to me; I like to look at it in a fun way!

As stepparents, we need to constantly be respectful of the children’s feelings who have experienced the divorce of their parents.  Lets face it, these little humans have feelings too 💖 we need to be respectful, as this is also a way of teaching them to be respectful of their parents and others.

At first, everything is about adjustment; this can last for many years.  Again, feelings don’t heal overnight, and we need to have compassion for our children who may be dealing with this confusion in their lives.  Patience is a complete virtue!

Over time, things will and do get better.  With compassion, the children will soon learn as they mature, the new parents in their lives, are not there to destroy the relationship between their own parents, but instead to add to the love of the child.  We are there to show love, compassion, kindness, and generosity.  More love to a child, makes for a happier child.  They will also learn these values in life quicker and will then be able to find more positive in life than negative.

Whether you look at a stepfamily as “just a step family”, or whether you see it as an “extended” family, as long as there is love, then this will help you get through the challenging times.

Be a friend!  Create a bond as a friend; the child will start to feel comfortable and will tend to open up more to you with difficult topics.  We as parents need to keep lines of communication open with all our children; establishing that “friend” part of being a parent will make them feel free to talk to you about anything.

We took this approach with our children, and let me tell you, there isn’t anything we haven’t discussed with all our children.  The lines of communication are completely open 💖

I’m sharing this with you, as I believe if we take 10% of what someone is telling us and tuck it away in our memory, you just never know when it may come in handy.  We don’t have the answers to everything; we are learning as we go, but if something positive is the outcome, then feel free to keep sharing with others.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -The Best Is Yet To Come

Every now and then, we may find ourselves in a bit of a rut; easily depressed and possibly stressed out.  It happens and if we let it, the rut gets deeper and deeper until we cannot breathe.  Yikes!  Just typing those two sentences, gave me the sensation of choking!  Who needs that?  I know I don’t!!

Instead, when you do find the possibility these times are approaching you, please remind yourself, “The Best Is Yet To Come!”  These “ruts” are tests, and if you learn to acknowledge them as “tests”, then your mind will prepare you for greatness which will be just around the corner.

Trust me, I know, it is a test of strength to not allow depression and stress to take over, but by training your mind to turn lemons into lemonade and to learn to accept challenges with a wink 😉 you will live a calmer and more productive life!  YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT!

The Best Is Yet To Come!!

We need to be productive with our challenges; learn from them, gain the wisdom, and share the experiences with others in hopes to help them along their own journey.

By helping others is “YOU” at your BEST!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Blended Family

My family and I, are what you would call, a Blended Family.  To be honest, I don’t see a need to specify if we are family, or a blended family, as to be honest we are simply, FAMILY!

The truth is, we are not related by blood, but our hearts have become ONE, and we have established unique relationships with each other based on appreciation.

When you bring two families together, in a blended way, I don’t see why it should be any different from bringing two families together in a marriage where there are no children involved.  Either way, it is two different families coming together.

I know the children may not have been a result in this new blended family, but the way I look at it, by caring for these children, as if they were your own biologically, makes them your sons and daughters.  The love you feel and share with these children is no different from the love you feel for your own children.  At least, that is how I look at it.

It isn’t easy bringing two families together, there can be challenges, but if you remain true to who you are and your intentions which come from your heart, then over time things will improve.

Our family is unique;  we love each other, we compliment each other with our personalities and we share great memories.  Allowing growth and understanding in a blended family, will help not only the adjustment, but will also bring more love.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love You More

I often think, when you love someone, with all your heart, is it possible to have the feeling of loving more?

You don’t realize just how much you can love a person until that person is hurting.  When you want to take all the pain away for them, means you are loving that person more than you could ever imagine.

When someone says to you, “I wish I could take your pain away” or “It hurts me to know you are hurting”, is their expression of love.  This doesn’t mean they are “in love” with you from the romantic perspective, it means they sincerely care about you with their heart – another form of love.  It is okay to love your friends!

To find people in our lives who “sincerely” care about us, is truly a gift!  Believe it or not, there are families who can’t even express this kind of love for one another, which is sad.  Families like these let envy, greed, and all the nasty emotions get in the way of something that has the potential of being beautiful.  A reminder, these people have their own pain they are clearly not dealing with, but in time, they will experience the feeling of “loving more”.

When people who sincerely care about you cross your path, they are there for a reason – they truly “want” to be in your life.  Remember, they are a gift!

With Good Vibes Only – Love More!

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – You Have What It Takes!

It is so easy to get down on ourselves; unfortunately, it really doesn’t take much.  So…enough already!!!

Whatever makes your heart flutter – You Have What It Takes!!

There will always be people in the World who would love to see you do nothing but fail; that is their issue based on their own pain they are dealing with.  In this World, some people who are struggling with negativity in their lives, don’t have the resources to fix themselves; or at least that is what they would like you to believe.  This means, they are not quite ready to fix themselves just yet.

When they are ready to fix themselves, it will happen at the right time.

Please keep this in mind, if you come across people who try to put you down when you are trying to pursue something you are passionate about;  they are not there to harm you or discourage you in your pursuit of happiness, they just haven’t had the opportunity to jump on the Good Vibes Only bus just yet 😉😉

There will be constant roadblocks, hurdles, and stop signs to block you, but the main thing you need to remember is that you truly do have what it takes to follow your dreams.  The reward will be much better if you make your way through these obstacles!  Not only will you feel your strength, but your passion for your goal will be that much more stronger.
