The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Get Your Thoughts Out!

There are times in life where, due to respect, we simply do not say what we “want” to say, but instead we say what we “need” to say. Have you ever been in that position? You really want to say what your mind wants to say, but realize it would hurt someone’s feelings, you then bottle it up.

That is called respecting someone’s feelings. We all have a difference of opinion, that is what makes us unique; however, at times, and in certain conversations or discussions, we don’t look at it that way. We just look at it as, “why don’t they see, my opinion is right!!” When this happens, it means you have strong convictions towards your beliefs. There is nothing wrong with that either.

The key is this:

It is very important to understand we are all different, we all need to be heard, and we all need to respect others opinions as well. If we want to be heard and understood, then why wouldn’t someone else want that in their lives? That is the main question here. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

In order to keep a conversation smooth and calm, when it could go the other way, we need to stop and think before we speak. It isn’t always necessary to voice an opinion, when all the other person wants is to be heard. Which means, you just need to listen.

At times, this can cause a bit of frustration in our lives; not being able to voice an opinion, especially if it is different than the person you are listening too. You do have an option; write your thoughts down on paper.

It works! I have done this many times, and I’ve felt a sense of relief afterwards. With respect towards the person I’ve been listening too, it was clear they needed to just be heard and for me to listen, I did not comment, I simply gave compassion.

I’ve used a journal to write down my thoughts towards a situation; this doesn’t mean I don’t like the person I was conversing with, it just means, I still wrote out my opinions on a “topic” in order for me to get my own thoughts out. In a way, the paper was listening to what the pen was writing, without commenting. A different perspective, but it works!

We all have thoughts that we need to get out, every now and then, and it is important to do so. No need to bottle up emotions, write them down! There are times we cannot say certain things out loud, but our paper will listen without judgement, without criticism, and without a hurtful response.

Start your own journal and give it a try; remember you don’t need to mention any names, just get your thoughts out about your opinions of different situations. In showing respect for others, you are showing respect for yourself by creating this exercise.

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 – 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 – Life Changes

Life Changes!  I’ve chosen this picture, for the simple reason, it shows how things can change so quickly.  From snow, to green grass, just like that – without warning!  Believe it or not, these life changes can happen when it is out of our control.  We have no choice but to accept, adjust, and move forward.  The good thing is, is that we can still blossom through it and flourish like we are meant too!

One thing I’ve learned in my life, we don’t have all the answers.  There are times when we like to think we know it all, but we really don’t.  We never will know everything, that is why we learn as we go.  We need to stop putting pressure on ourselves to know everything; we do the best we can with what we know.

Life changes all the time, it gets so confusing at times, but by breathing, taking it moment by moment and day by day, this will allow us to learn what we are supposed to be learning in that moment.

Life changes, can be a blessing, but then they can be very hurtful and scary; we need to embrace both and move forward with faith.  When we have faith, it even makes fear take a backseat.

With the recent life changes, I find it has changed my perspective on quite a few things in my own life.  I’ve vowed to face these changes and move forward with confidence and drive.  Trust me, I have my days where, the shock of everything wears off and reality sinks in, but I then remind myself, these changes will eventually pass – this is happening for the World to learn in this moment.

We are doing this together; we are learning through this life change.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Summer’s Cozy Corner – An Introverts Perspective

We have a new addition to tell you about!

Summer’s Cozy Corner

This site is focused on bringing great “lifestyle” information to you, based on an introverts perspective.  We have had a lot of fun putting this together and hope that you will enjoy, Summer’s Cozy Corner!

ABOUT SUMMER’S COZY CORNER – http://www.summerscozycorner.com

 

I am introverted. If you meet me in person, I may offer a small wave as a “hello” or “nice to meet you”. At the same time my mind is constantly filled with ideas and concepts that I can’t get out fast enough. I’ve always felt that I had so much to say but could never spit it out properly.

Especially in writing, it is not my forte. It has taken me a long time to figure out how to go about this blog. Probably about 5 years I’d say. I’d have an outburst of ideas and simultaneously get overwhelmed trying to put them in order so that it would make sense. Frustration would ensue and I would step away from it for months. I’ve apparently had a breakthrough, finally!!

I have many interests in my life that I am equally passionate about. I could not just pick one focus. I’ve dubbed this the Cozy Corner because one constant in my world is that I always seek comfort. In one way or another. Whether it’s food, shopping, rearranging the house, I am doing these things simply to feel better. It works every time, so why not talk about it full time!

Usually it takes a spark of inspiration to get the ball rolling. Once it does get going, I could go on for hours. Long story short, in telling my stories, I hope that they spark an inspiration in your world.

I will be publishing my first book – Love Grandma by Summer’s Cozy Corner.  I hope you will all follow my site, as I will be sharing some of my Grandma’s favorite recipes that made her family feel full of love!

Please feel free to follow Summer’s Cozy Corner at http://www.summerscozycorner.com and share with all your friends, family, and followers.
